The Brickyard, Norfolk

One of my favourite campsites yet, an old brickyard in Norfolk. We didn't actually set up our tent this time and chose to stay in the on-site safari tent, a.k.a. 'The Brickmakers Retreat'. Absolutely perfect. Campfire area outside, woodburner inside, no electricity. All you need is a water tap and lots of candles and you're good. 

There's a long drop close by, which surprised me with a bat flying in my face the first time I used it. Such nature.

Our spot and all the tent pitches are cut off from each other with trees and brambles, so you feel like you're totally alone. There's nothing I hate more than campsites where you have to sit and look at some stranger while you're trying to relax round your campfire.

If you ever find yourself in Norfolk I massively recommend either camping or staying in the Brickmakers Retreat. Total peace and quiet.
