Features & FacilitiesBell tents come furnished with beds, bedding, and wood for the woodburner provided. Mains lighting and sockets in tents as well as a selection of fairy lights. Each has its own fully equipped kitchenette, including fridge (with ice box), twin electric hob, cooking equipment, utensils, crockery, cutlery, kettle, toaster and a private shower room. There's also a wood-burning stove, a BBQ and a firepit for your own campfire. There's a communal washing up area, where you'll also find a microwave. Canoe hire, cycle hire and day passes for trout fishing in the river are all available. Camping chairs provided and picnic table under cover of a gazebo. Private woods to explore and deer to find.
ActivitiesCanoes can be hired and delivered to the site to dabble on the River Bure. Or why not take off on one of the local footpaths through the surrounding countryside. It's a 10-minute walk to Buxton Station (01263 733858) – hop aboard a steam train on the Bure Valley Railway and whistle south into the Norfolk Broads. Just outside the pretty village of Horning, Bewilderwood (01692 633033) is a particularly popular family attraction. Based on the series of books by local author Tom Blofeld, it brings the watery environment of the Broads to life – both as a land of make-believe and an overgrown adventure playground full of rope bridges, ladders, zip wires and tree houses. For more 'grown up' Norfolk culture, try a visit to Blickling Hall (01263 738030), probably the finest Jacobean mansion in Norfolk. With craft shops, beauty salons, eateries, mini golf, a petting zoo and fun fair (throughout August), Wroxham Barns (01603 783762) has plenty to offer for both young and old alike. For a day at the seaside Great Yarmouth (about 35 mins away) Cromer (25 mins) are your best bet – the latter is home to a sandy beach and a charming old pier.
Food & DrinkThe nearest watering hole is around 4 miles away by car in Skeyton. It's called The Goat Inn (01692 538600) and is a beautiful, thatched 16th-century pub, family run and serving great food. Other top picks nearby include The Black Boys (01263 732122) in Aylsham and The Fox (01603 755362) in Hevingham , each a within a 10-minute drive. The Crown (01263 733534) at Banningham is another excellent local (5 miles away). For fish and chips, the Buxton Fried Fish and Chip Shop (01603 278256) takes some beating.
The nearest train station is in Worstead (0845 748 4950).
