Kids will love seeing the horses, alpacas and chickens! There is also a Mud Kitchen, Witches cooking pot, Pixie House and sandpit to keep them entertained.
Facilities include a family/accessible sized toilet and shower, separate toilet, separate shower and covered washing up area. We have lovely hot water, good pressure, no annoying limiters on the showers and incredibly eco-friendly composting toilets.
There's loads to do and explore here in beautiful North Norfolk, or take a slower pace and enjoy the nature and peace, with woodland and common walks right on our doorstep and an extensive variety of wildlife and birds to spot.
With futon beds

Camping under canvas is a totally different experience from the polyester tents of today, and with our real beds and mattresses you'll get a proper night's sleep!
Our Bell Tents are all complete with vents and zipped windows. They can be fully unzipped and the sides rolled up for airflow, either with or without the 360 degree mesh.

Toilets & Showers
The above photos are of our individual toilet and shower. We also have a NEW Family/Accessible toilet and shower room which is spacious and also offers a shower seat, plus grab handles.
Our Composting Toilets are emptied twice a day and the contents will make good garden compost in a couple of years!
They're easy to use, just sit and do your business. Throwing a handful of wood shavings on top of a #2 ensures no smells. Super soft recycled toilet paper from Who Gives A Crap? is provided, as are sinks with eco friendly hand wash and fresh cotton hand towels.
Our showers are gas powered and will give you good wash with decent temperature and pressure, no cold dribbles here! They are free of those irritating limiters too, though we encourage people to think of the planet and not spend hours in there, however nice they are!
The washing up station has hot water, eco friendly washing up liquid, a natural loofah scrubber and fresh tea towels daily.
The Hive & Campfire Kitchen
The Hive & Campfire Kitchen is the central point of our site and is a sociable, joyful hub of activity!
Everything is provided so you get stuck in and get as creative as you wish to get! Browse our recipe books, try your hand at open fire cooking, make a cuppa and don't forget to wash up your things!

There's space for everyone with four internal picnic benches and plenty of benches and seating outside too. You can keep an eye on the kids while cooking as the play area and tents are not far away, the whole site is cosy which makes it possible to sit by the fire once the kids are asleep and still be within sight/hearing range.
We have always found that there's not much better than sitting around a fire late on a summer's evening, and we hope to share that joy with you.
Please Note: BBQ Coal can be purchased from our Honesty Shop or you can bring your own. You can also purchase marshmallows!
