Wild Camping in Norfolk

Alderfen Marshes offers a number of sites ideal for wild camping in Norfolk. Situated in nine acres of beautiful wilderness in the Norfolk Broads National Park, the marshes offer a perfect setting to experience nature at its best. Accessible only on foot or by canoe, it’s an opportunity to get back to basics and close to nature.

As well as providing accommodation during team development programmes, our wild camping sites are also available for taking time out from your daily hustle and bustle.  Nature lovers can enjoy close encounters with herons, muntjac, otters, marsh harriers, buzzards, swans, water deer, foxes, bats and more.  In the Summer time, enjoy a natural world teeming with butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy the experience of the wild camping on the Norfolk Broads.
