Spring will be ‘Well & Truly Sprung’ in Burnham Deepdale

What a difference a year makes, and 2017 is going to be a great year in Burnham Deepdale, with a new team running the hostels and campsite at Deepdale Farm, the return of Deepdale Conservation Weekends, the second Deepdale Spring Market, the inaugural Deepdale Hygge, and the first ever North Norfolk Coast Hygge Fair.  And that just tells you what’s happening up until the first weekend of Spring at the end of March.  Beyond that there is so much more planned, but we’ll come to that in due course.

The new team at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping are really beginning to make good their plan to return the award winning facilities at Deepdale to their best.  The redecoration is almost complete, the new shower blocks are under construction, the electric hookup cables are in and the worst of the trench digging is done.  600m of hedges are due to be planted at the next Deepdale Conservation Weekend over the first weekend of February.

Customers are enjoying the new atmosphere and it’s lovely to welcome old friends back after a long absence. – www.deepdalebackpackers.co.uk

Chris Haycock, Deepdale’s operations director, is passionate about live music and his love of the North Norfolk Coast, and out of that grew the idea of the Deepdale Hygge, a celebration of what the Deepdale team love about where they work and play.  The inaugural Deepdale Hygge is planned for the first weekend of Spring, Friday 24th to Sunday 26th March.  Those staying at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping or exhibiting at the Deepdale Spring Market will be joining the Deepdale team in finding their own North Norfolk Coast Hygge. – www.deepdalehygge.co.uk

As part of the Deepdale Hygge, the Deepdale crew have invited a whole range of local organisations, attractions and activity providers, for the first North Norfolk Coast Hygge Fair.  This will be a one day fair, on Saturday 25th March, helping visitors and locals to discover more about the North Norfolk Coast and find their own Hygge.  Exhibitors include the National Trust, Go Ape, Deepdale Bike Hire, MarGins Walking & Glamping Holidays and RSPB, more will be added right up to the event.  There will be stands, activities, helpful information and advice.  Its free to come along and you can combine with some shopping at the Deepdale Spring Market and lunch at Deepdale Café. – www.deepdalebackpackers.co.uk/hygge/fair/

To top off the first weekend of Spring, Dalegate Market will be hosting the second annual Deepdale Spring Market.  Building on the huge success of the Deepdale Christmas Market and last year’s first Deepdale Spring Market, over 50 Norfolk artisans and producers will be joining the permanent shops & cafe of Dalegate Market.  There will be two large marquees, the beach hut pop up shops and outside stalls on Friday 24th, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March. –www.deepdalespringmarket.co.uk

As you can see, Spring will be well and truly sprung in Burnham Deepdale this year.

  • Deepdale Festival 2021

    With just over 3 weeks to go before Deepdale Festival 2021, the team at Deepdale Camping & Rooms are getting excited about hosting their first live music since 2019.  And with the line-up that Chris Haycock has put together, the excitement is completely understandable.

    This will be the 4th Deepdale Festival, which sees a brick barn become the main stage, an orchard become a folk stage and street performance venue, and St Mary’s Church host special performances. 

    Hundreds of music fans will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, the excellent drinks & food, and an incredible music line-up.

    “It will be truly wonderful to host live music again at Deepdale, and I can’t wait to introduce these fabulous artists from the UK music scene including Martin Simpson, 3 Daft Monkeys, Katherine Priddy, Little Red Kings, Katie Doherty & The Navigators, Kirsty Merryn & Ben Walker, Man The Lifeboats, The Drystones and The Goat Roper Rodeo Band.”said Chris Haycock, Festival Director. 

     “The music industry has had a really tough couple of years, so it feels great to be able to support these hugely talented artists, and showcase their music to our lovely visitors.  Can’t wait to be dancing in the Brick Barn again, it’s been too long.”

    Since Chris Haycock and Jason Borthwick took on the management of Deepdale Camping & Rooms in late 2016, they have developed not only Deepdale Festival, but also Deepdale Hygge and a series of Live Music Sundays.  Chris has been working with bands for many years, and wanted to create a music scene at Deepdale.  It’s a testament to his hard work and passion that Deepdale is now hosting the quality of acts that it is. 

  • Owners of One of North Norfolk’s Best Cafés Retire

    After discovering the joys of relaxing in their garden during the Covid-19 lockdown, Viv and Graham have decided to sell Deepdale Café and enjoy their retirement.They’ve run the busy café with Sophie for more than 6 years, in which time they’ve fed royalty, the famous, and those who love the North Norfolk Coast.

    Deepdale Café is at the heart of Dalegate Market, the busy independent shopping centre in Burnham Deepdale.  With an all year round footfall, surrounded by lovely independent shops, with lots of indoor and outdoor seating, the café is a brilliant opportunity for new owners with energy and enthusiasm.

    “I’ve loved welcoming visitors to eat and drink at Deepdale Café, over the last 6 years.  The enforced rest from the lockdown made me realise that it was time to wear my slippers more often, enjoy my garden, and pass on Deepdale Café to someone with more energy than we have.” Viv, owner and manager of Deepdale Café.  “Amazing to think we’ve served so many meals in the last 6 years.  Going to miss the buzz and seeing the customers, but time to move on and enjoy other things.”

  • Times They Are A Changin’

    This week, the original creators of Deepdale Backpackers & Camping are back at the helm for the first time in seven years. Jason Borthwick and a whole new team, headed by Chris Haycock, are immensely excited about the future.

    As the old tenants leave for pastures new in Cumbria, there will be a regeneration at Deepdale. This Winter, visitors will see a whole series of improvements and additions.  Amongst those changes will be new shower and toilet facilities for the campsite, electric hook-ups on some pitches, a completely refitted visitor information centre, huge planting programme of trees and hedges, and new services such as bike hire.

  • Dalegate Market celebrates 10 years

    There are the regular events like OAP Wednesdays, Pasta Thursdays and Fishy Fridays at Deepdale Café throughout the year.  From May to September One Stop Nature Shop run Beginners Guided Wildlife Walks each Wednesday.

  • Dalegate Market finalist in "The Rural Oscars"

    Two Norfolk businesses are celebrating after being listed as finalists in the Countryside Alliance Awards, ‘The Rural Oscars’.  Friends Crawford White, of G. F. White Butchers in Aylsham, and Jason Borthwick, of Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale, have won awards in the past, but to be finalists in the hotly contested national awards is superb news.

    “We’ve won the regional butcher award in the past, but to be up for the national award is great.  Fingers crossed we’ll be celebrating with Jason and the Dalegate Market team in April, when we all attend the awards ceremony at Westminster.” Said Crawford.
