About Our Campsite

Nestled along the edge of the Broads national park, Highgate has been run by Lesley and Mike Smith since 1990 and has been on this particular site since 1699. Mike and Lesley have planted upwards of 10,000 trees on-site, creating countless walks on and off-site, and encouraging a plethora of wildlife into the local area. Highgate, like a fine wine, has only gotten better with age. Sheltered by an immaculately kept border of shrubs and trees with a beautifully managed lawn for you to set up for the night on. No grazing animals are allowed on site.

Highgates location lends itself perfectly to a variety of different activities. Nearby attractions include the Norfolk Broads for wildlife and nature lovers, Pleasurewood hills for any thrillseekers amongst you, Bewilderwood to entertain the children, among many many more.
