The Racecourse Caravan & Camping site

Fakenham Racecourse runs its own high quality and independent caravan and camping site. The site is open to guests every day of the year making it the ideal location for relaxing summer hoilidays and winter breaks.

There are a number of features which make Fakenham Racecourse the prime site for a caravanning or camping holiday in Norfolk. For many it’s the location. Just 10 miles from the stunning North Norfolk coast. It is a short 10 minute walk into the market town of Fakenham which is at the heart of the County and surrounded by Norfolk’s finest attractions. The site itself makes the perfect base. Our 125 pitches are set in beautiful countryside, some of which are sheltered by tall conifers and mature trees. The grounds and modern facilities are excellently maintained.

Caravan Club accredited


We are proud to be associated with the Caravan Club as an ‘Affiliated Site’. The Tourist Board has also awarded us 3*. The Racecourse is situated 25 miles north of the beautiful historic city of Norwich, and 20 miles to the west is the Georgian town of King’s Lynn. In close proximity are some of the country’s finest stately homes, coastal resorts and diverse countryside. The nearest seaside resort is Wells-next-the-Sea, situated on a magnificent stretch of coast noted for its sandy beaches and salt marshes. Part of the area is National Trust owned and forms the largest coastal nature reserve in the country. It is a major venue for bird watches.

Whether you are looking for a lazy holiday, or an active one, Fakenham Racecourse is the ideal choice for your stay in Norfolk.
