Look no further than glamping at Gorsey Meadow in Norfolk for the ultimate escape to peace and tranquility and plenty of fresh countryside air. Having kept it to ourselves for so long we now hope others will enjoy it as much as we do. Our wonderfully secluded meadow allows adults to escape the hustle and bustle and children to enjoy space and nature in a safe environment. Book individually or hire the meadow exclusively as part of a group of family and friends and have your own slice of Norfolk to build memories that will last a lifetime. Birthday and hen party groups are welcome if the meadow is hired exclusively and if terms & conditions are adhered to.
Wildlife is the most frequent resident in the meadow and you are welcome to explore our woodland surrounding the meadow. We have a bug hotel for children to add to and tree swings for them to enjoy.
Our aim is not to squeeze as many pitches in as possible but to have a maximum of 5 luxurious bell tents. Group bookings of family or friends are welcome. Your accommodation will come with:
- Superb double mattresses and quality single air beds with all bedding
- Double ring gas cooker with gas
- Crockery and cutlery
- Cool Box
- Charcoal bbq and much more
Guests are to provide their own towels.
Gorsey Meadow has a newly installed shower ensuring plenty of hot water and privacy but also in keeping with the environment. It also has a separate loo and butler sink. Eco soap and shampoo only please. There are two fire pits to relax around with lovely oak seating along with additional picnic benches.
‘The Shop’ contains essentials such as Charcoal, firelighters, marshmallows for toasting, ketchup and glow sticks.
‘The Shed’ has local tourism leaflets, books for children & adults to borrow, candles for outside use and wine glasses.
Gorsey is a tranquil, car free zone, so after emptying your car, please park on the designated Gorsey pad on the Hockering House drive.
