The Owner Says
The Woodpecker is our newest addition at Happy Valley and we couldn't be more pleased with it. It is a hexagon-shaped space with open field and woodland views housing a real kingsize bed and two beautiful bunks. It has a woodburner in the living space for colder evenings with seating and a dining table and chairs. The kitchenette is equipped with a fridge, hob, plates etc. The tree temple has a wrap-around deck and is surrounded by a woodland garden with a barbecue, Fire pit, outdoor seating and table. Take a swing in the hammock which comes with this cabin.
Features & FacilitiesShepherd's huts include a fitted double bed, storage, kitchenette with toaster, kettle, gas hob, utensils, crockery and cutlery, and a log burner (see website for full furnishing details). All set in 8 acres of woodland. Extra bell tents can be hired alongside shepherd's huts if more occupancy is needed. Newly refurbished shower and toilet block with proper flushing loos. Firepits available. Add a private locked bathroom for an extra £10. Welcome hampers available. Bikes for hire (but helmets not included). Therapies such as facials, massages and reflexology are also available when the campsite's local practitioner in the next village is around.
Activities250-acre Congham Heath is practically this campsite's back garden. Footpaths run through the common (and cycle trails) and just down the road (a short stroll) there is also Grimston Warren and Roydon Common, beautiful heathland restoration projects that house a mosaic of habitats and wildlife. Thread them together in a pleasant walk, stopping off in Grimston village for a drink (see food & drink). If you do fancy using the car, it's a 20–30-minute drive to the beaches of the north Norfolk coast. Stop off on the way at the Queen's Sandringham Estate (01485 545400; 10 minute's from the campsite).
Food & DrinkThe Old Bell (01485 601156; 1¼ mile) in Grimston is the nearest pub, a proper old establishment with local Norfolk ales, but there are a host of other options within easy reach. Enjoy the duck ponds in Great Massingham with a pint out the front of The Dabbling Duck (01485 520827) or feast on the hearty meals at The Rose & Crown (01485 521807) in Little Massingham. There are two more spots in Roydon – The Anvill Inn (01485 600625) and The Three Horseshoes (01485 600666) – which are worth an afternoon stop when walking the local heaths. Welcome hampers and pre-organised food options are also available at the campsite by request.
