    Walcot, norfolk coast

    As I mentioned in another post we came across this place a few days back , well I say that but we knew it was here before but it shut down after the owner died. It has been re - opened by the new owner who has really tidied the place up and made it a really pleasant place to stay it is pretty basic but that's what we like, with fresh water and chemical disposal point and a toilet available. Price is now £10 per night but worth it in my opinion for the location, post office / shop and pubs as well as chip shop, café and burger bar all within easy walking distance, beach literally just across the road. Some quick snaps of the place.










    and the view through a window


    Google Earth map view yellow way point marks the site

    I know for most that paying for a site goes against the grain but I think it was worth putting a post about it as there doesn't seem to be to many places to wild camp around this area especially for us with bigger vehicles, this site is ideal for us and I can see many weekends being spent here , I'll see the owner later and get some contact details and the post code etc.

    address of the site ;
    Slate Bungalow
    Coast Road
    Walcott

    Looks a great site, Especially as you say for bigger vehicles, Well done.
    See if there's any 'Deals' for longer stays say 5 or 7 nights !.& if that includes electric hook up for those that need it !.

    Superb!
    £10 a night as you say, is very reasonable especially as it is so close to the sea.
    We will definately be putting it on our places to visit list👍

    I've also noticed that there doesn't seem to be any signs forbidding motorhomes or staying overnight etc on the road in the places that don't have double yellow lines also a few parking spaces for smaller vehicles just off the road up one end of the sea wall looking at the picture of the map it's to the right where you can see the road starts heading inland. there are also public toilets near by.

    It is and we'll be back as often as we can, the slipway is also used by people with boats etc but you would need a good 4x4

    I fish there sometimes and the ramp is very slippery - I've seen a couple of FWD cars go swimming
