The Owner Says

Glamping – camping in style. TwistUp! Glamping Oak Lodge is situated in beautiful Norfolk countryside near Thetford Forest. We offer accommodation in bell tents and glamorous gypsy caravans. It’s perfect for people who want the outdoors and back-to basics experience but don’t fancy pitching their own tent.

With us, you will get pre-erected bell tents with 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.

The gypsy caravans are also located in the forest in their own private spaces. Supplied with bedding and beautiful décor, you will still get the outdoors camping experience but with luxury and style. The caravans have full electricity a fridge and gas cooker. The campsite is 10 acres and away from a busy main road. Perfect place for adults to relax and unwind, for kids to explore and run around, for pets to enjoy.

Features & Facilities

Luxury shower/ toilet unit with three showers, three flushing toilets and four composting toilets.

Amazing and magical!

As our first experience glamping we had the best time at oak lodge! It was so quirky and rustic yet gave us all the essentials with luxury showers and facilities! It was immaculately clean, the staff were friendly and so welcoming. It gave our children aged 4, 6 and 7 a real sense of freedom, with an awesome treehouse aeroplane set within a spacious and safe woodland area the kids loved every minute. My little boy made a friend and they just played in the treehouse for hours, it was a really magical childhood holiday which they will remember in years to come. The beds were so comfy and warm, we are already planning to come again next year!
