Britain's 20 best coastal campsites | Clover Stroud selects the best places to pitch a tent by the sea.

13 Deepdale Farm, Norfolk
(01485 210256; www.deepdalefarm.co.uk; tents 4.50 per person, per night; tepees from 40 per night).

This well-run site has space for over 80 pitches, including tents and small camper vans, but there are also a small number of tepees available to hire. The site is in the middle of the North Norfolk coastline, and there are some lovely beaches on either side. For huge skies and miles of sand head to Holkham beach. Farther around the coast you can go crabbing at Blakeney or walk across the romantic marshland at Morston. The seaside towns of Cromer, Wells-next-the-Sea and Sheringham are good for days out, or if you are looking for fish-and-chips and bucket-and-spade-shops. The eco-friendly facilities include solar-heated water, and clean lavatories and washing-up facilities.
