Why stay here ...

The Midden site, as the name suggests, was developed and built by our family on the old Wells Rubbish Dump. With environmental decisions as a focus, 44 years later this 6-acre location has thousands of mature trees dividing the land into 4 large fields, one of which is the designated Camping and Motorhome Campsite. A quiet, rural destination; filled with birds and animals; this site is an ideal location for those who love the North Norfolk Coast but also appreciate time away from busy holiday activities. We provide large pitches, water tap and electricity. The Midden has the added bonus of being a station for the Wells to Walsingham Light Railway.

Facilities on site ...

Gem of a site!

The Midden
What a lovely little site hidden in a clearing in the woods. Delightfully chilled site with EHU dotted around so you can park as you wish! Grass pitches were fine for us in October, but would ring and check if it had been very wet! We will definitely come again next time we visit this area. We caught the Wells to Walsingham Light Railway from the site at "The Midden Halt". Also, don't be put off by the Recycling Plant next door as there was no sound or disruption. We had a great stay here!

Thoroughly Recommended

The Midden
A small clearly marked woodland glade welcomes you when you arrive on site. Despite being close to the road and the local refuse recycling centre it is very peaceful, particularly at night. The history of the site is very interesting so don't forget to read the book hidden in the clearly marked bin near the track leading into the site. A great feature is the private station on the Wells and Walsingham Railway, a visit to Walsingham is a must especially on the days when the steam train is running. TV and mobile reception is very good. Alastair often appears on site making payment easy and to answer any questions. Definitely one to visit again.

Little Gem

The Midden
Great little site. Very pleasant owners. Easy access to Wells and buses along the coast. We had a warm welcome from the chickens each afternoon. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again when in Norfolk.

Spacious CL site

The Midden
We have recently visited this site. Its quite large and surrounded by trees, but always get sun during the day. The site is approximately 25 mins walk into Wells-at-the-sea (depending how fast you walk). You could easy miss the entrance to this site, but its only a very short distance from the recycling plant. The site is near a main road, but this wasn't a problem with noise. We didn't see Mr Beale on our visit, but this seems to be the case on some CL sites. Money to be left in post box. I will say it would be nice to receive confirmation of payment at some stage. Mr. & Mrs Wilkins

Flying Geese

The Midden
Spent 4 nights in late Sept in Motorhome. 15 min walk to buses and to town and 30 to seafront. Really good basic CL. Worth walking around the field as some ehu tucked into corner We used the private stop on the light railway which goes to Walsingham. Only goes that way not into town Enjoyed the pink footed geese flying overhead in v formation and saw deer and heard tawny owl Easy access to rest of coast in car or on bus
