Details

The backpackers hostel at Deepdale offers a range of comfortable self-catering rooms including double, twin, triple, quad and family options, all with private ensuite shower and toilet facilities.

We also offer single sex and mixed sex dorm rooms, also with ensuite shower and toilet facilities.

All bedding is provided; you just need to bring your own towels.

The hostel has underfloor heating throughout, with laundry and drying facilities. All rooms have shared access to a large well-equipped kitchen, communal dining area and living room. There is TV, free Wi-Fi and loads of information on the local area to help you decide what to see and do during your stay.

Our visitor information centre is open every day, providing helpful and knowledgeable advice on walking routes, the local Coasthopper bus service, bike hire and lots more.

The hostel rooms are grouped around a partially covered old stable courtyard, which is perfect for summer evening barbecues. The buildings date back to the 17th century and have been restored in the traditional Norfolk style.

Where possible we have used green technologies to reduce our environmental impact. 100% of our electricity is generated from renewable sources; the hostel is accessible via public transport using train services to and from King's Lynn and the Coasthopper bus service, and we are currently investing in electric car-charging points.

The North Norfolk Coast is an outdoor enthusiasts' paradise offering water sports and outdoor activities of every sort, beautiful beaches and historic buildings, so you can be as active as you want. Of course, you might just like to chill out and relax in our award-winning self-catering accommodation or try one of our superb local pubs serving local beers and excellent seafood.

Deepdale Café is located next door serving fantastic breakfasts, lunches and snacks throughout the day, using local produce and suppliers wherever possible.

Dalegate Market has a range of shops including a supermarket for groceries and provisions, permanent shops open throughout the year, and pop up shops that change weekly.

The village has two great pubs, The Jolly Sailors and The White Horse, both within walking distance and serving locally produced ales and home cooked food.

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with one of Norfolk's Saxon round-tower churches, the village of Burnham Deepdale occupies a very special place on the North Norfolk Coast. The saltmarshes are spectacular; the walking on the Norfolk Coast Path is wonderful; the big open skies are breath-taking (with our night skies truly awe inspiring!); it's great cycling and water sports country and the bird and wildlife in the area is wonderfully diverse.

The backpackers hostel is open all year round, including Christmas and new Year, so whether in Winter or Summer, Spring or Autumn, your stay at Deepdale is a unique opportunity.

Coasthopper Bus Service
The Coasthopper Bus Service stops at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping and is a brilliant service, running approximately every 1/2 an hour during the Summer and every hour during the Winter. The service runs both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast, stopping in most villages including King's Lynn, Hunstanton, Burnham Market, Blakeney, Sheringham and Cromer. More information on the service can be found at www.coasthopper.co.uk

Trains
The nearest train station is King's Lynn, which has direct trains from Cambridge and London King's Cross. By changing at Ely and Cambridge you can also catch trains from Stansted Airport, Peterborough and further afield. There is also a station at Sheringham, which has trains to Norwich. The Coasthopper bus service connects with trains at both King's Lynn and Sheringham. Although there are occasional restrictions, you can normally bring your bike on the train.

National Coaches
The nearest national coach station is King's Lynn, which has direct national coaches from Birmingham, Coventry and Leicester, and connects with buses from London at Peterborough. The Coasthopper bus service connects with trains at both King's Lynn and Sheringham. If you are cyclist, then trains are the best option, as you can only put folding bikes on national coaches.

Norfolk Coast Path
The Norfolk Coast Path heads both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast and can be accessed down the lane opposite Dalegate Market (next door). The path offers wonderful walking along sea walls, across boardwalks and beaches. You can link up with the Coasthopper at many points along the path. More information on the path can be found at www.nationaltrail.co.uk/peddarsway

Cycling
Most of the A149 coast road is ok to cycle and there are lots of quiet country lanes inland. From the East (Burnham Market direction), the easiest route is over Whiteway Road. From the West (Docking & King's Lynn direction), the easiest route is down Dalegate Lane. National Cycle Route No1 passes a couple of miles inland. Remember you can hire bikes from Deepdale Bike Hire.

Driving
Naturally we'd encourage you to visit by public transport, walking or cycling, but car drivers are very welcome too. We're approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on A149 coast road.
For your satnav, our postcode is PE31 8DD
