Old Brick Kilns Park
The Old Brick Kilns is in Barney, close to the lovely town of Fakenham in North Norfolk. This lovely park which is one of only 2 Best of British Parks in Norfolk, has a tranquil rural atmosphere, is mostly sheltered, divided into woody pockets and open areas. It covers some 13 acres and has three levels with 60 spacious all weather semi-hard standing pitches for your caravan, tent, trailer tent or motor caravan.
If you seek a little more privacy then Heydon’s Meadow (for Caravan Club Members only) has 5 hard-standing pitches with fresh & waste water, electric and TV hook-ups. Each pitch is divided by gardens and beech hedging and has a picnic bench,
There are luxury washrooms with underfloor heating. The washrooms accommodate showers, toilets and washbasins as well as hand and hair dryers and there is a token operated laundry system, please ask at reception.
There are also several hardstanding drive-on pitches suitable for motorhomes.
For those who camp under canvas, we have The Camping Meadow which has grass pitches with electric hook-up (except for three) and is accessible by car and a gently sloping walkway, suitable for wheelchairs, directly opposite the restaurant.
Wifi is available on all pitches.
The reception desk, shop and first aid post are situated together within the main building and there is access into all areas of the main building for wheelchairs along firm pathways.
The shop stocks most basic foodstuffs and is an off licence too. It also sells fresh bread, croissants, papers, toiletries, home-made produce, sweets, drinks, ice-cream, gas, caravan accessories, maps, stamps and local crafts.
In a separate wooden building next to reception you will find a large map of the area along with a wealth of information on local attractions & places to visit etc as well as a selection of books and videos to rent.
We have refurbished Barney's Restaurant and bar area. Barney’s Restaurant (with take-away facility) and bar will be open on selected nights of the week (3-4), including our popular mid-week Fish & Chip night. If you’d like to eat in the evening, please book a table at reception.
We are extremely proud of our “David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award” and our “bird-watchers paradise”. We have a lovely larch bird hide on the edge of the conservation area of the park. The rainwater falls from the roof into a small wildlife pond, which in the spring hosts tadpoles and newts.
The hide contains information on all the birds that can be seen here such as tree creepers, barn and tawny owls, as well as the regulars to the bird table, which include woodpeckers, green finches, gold finches and more, we’ve even had a kingfisher spotted on the fishing pond!
Two owl boxes sit in trees bordering the park, and we have had Tawny Owls making good use of them, successfully rearing chicks.
There are over 45 different types of bird boxes around the site and a family of swallows nests annually above the door of our information centre - so watch your heads!
Our park provides the perfect base from which to explore all the beauty of Norfolk, from the wondrous beaches to the waterways, with many family attractions, restaurants and pubs nearby to keep all the family entertained.
