The Owner Says
This six-metre bell tent at TwistUp! Glamping Oak Lodge is situated in beautiful Norfolk countryside near Thetford Forest. It’s perfect for people who want the outdoors and back-to basics experience but don’t fancy pitching their own tent.
Our pre-erected bell tents have comfortable real mattress beds and homely décor. The tents are pitched in among the trees on level ground and each tent has its own camping table, chairs and firepit. We also provide a communal kitchen and luxury shower/toilet unit. We do supply solar powered leisure batteries ample for light and charging devices but we encourage our glampers to enjoy the simple pleasures of campfires and outdoor lights. We supply each bell tent with some complimentary logs for first camp fire, extra can be purchased on site.
All our bell tents come uniquely decorated so exact interior may differ slightly from images displayed.
