These five-metre, deluxe bell tents are fabulously roomy. At 12' high in the centre, there's plenty of wiggle room, and with a massive five-metre diameter, they provide a palatial pad for two, a perfect nest for a couple's retreat and plentiful room for the whole family.

If you're new to bell tent camping, the benefits are not just in size. Camping under natural cotton canvas is a completely different sleeping experience to the standard polyester tent. No waking up feeling parched and sweaty. The breathable nature of the material, together with the four big vents the tents have, means you are actually sleeping in the fresh air. The vents and the main door have a separate bug screen, allowing the air to circulate through the tent, which all in all is very conducive to a good night's rest.

You will also have a wood burning stove in your fully furnished tent, everything you'll need for cooking and eating, a fire pit and BBQ as well as access to the beautiful Walcis Farm surroundings, with the River Winsum running just beyond the meadow's edge.

About Amber's Bell Tent Camping at Walcis Farm

Riverside glamping in rural Norfolk, with wild swimming, canoeing and a local, car-free cycle trail that runs to Norwich city centre

Oaks Meadow at Walcis Farm Estate is a typically Norfolk Constablesque landscape, with lovely hillocks offering uninterrupted views of the river Wensum, which winds its way sleepily through the centre of the site. Six of our cozy, stylish tents inhabit this stunning watery landscape. It is sooo quiet down here. You are literally miles from the nearest road, so the sounds of nature abound. The meadows themselves offer a wonderful open space for roaming and play and the surrounding estate attracts walkers and wildlife enthusiasts.

It is the river, though, which is the star attraction here. With a launch from which to access the crystal clear water for a spot of wild swimming or canoeing, you can lose yourselves in dreamy days spent messing about by the river. Need supplies? Walk along the riverside path which takes you to nearby Lyng, or for added adventure, canoe there. The estate has an established 1920’s hotel on it’s perimeter where you can safely cycle to for a roast and private carp fishing is available on the estate by appointment.

Leave your car and life at the gates, and take a dive deep into nature.
