Glamping in Norwich Norfolk
Norfolk’s newest glamping and campsite is situated in the beautiful surroundings of 80 acres of Country Park and just 15 minutes by bike form Norwich’s historic city centre. We have glamping in the form of boutique Shepherds huts, Bell tents or a yurt – or bring along your own tent. The idea of the campsite came from our love of fresh air and being under canvas, rain or shine! There are not many things as special as falling asleep next to your over ones, exhausted from exploring and adventuring, then waking up to a sunrise, camp stove tea and grass between your toes. Why not join us for a countryside break with the fine city of Norwich on your doorstep and the world famous Norfolk Broads in your back garden!
Within a few minutes walk you will be able to hire canoes and kayaks to explore the Broad, enjoy woodland walks and practice your balancing skills on the family-friendly low ropes course. If you need a break from the great outdoors, hop aboard the Riverbus and cruise into Norwich. The museums, shops and cinemas and cafes of Norwich are also easily accessible on foot, by bike, bus or car. If you want to travel further afield, the beautiful North Norfolk Coastline and Suffolk Heritage Coast is just 30-45 minutes from Norwich.
