Brakehill Lodge Farm: Sunny days (photo added by manager on 26/07/2023)

General

  • Scenic orchard site on a Norfolk farm
  • Half an hour from Thetford Forest and 50 minutes from Norwich
  • Craft courses and farm shop selling honey, bread and veg

In need of a peaceful getaway that lets you unwind? Guests should thread their way along to Brakehill Lodge Farm, a family-friendly orchard site on a Norfolk farm half an hour’s drive from Thetford.

With a whole farm to explore, there are scenic walks to take and lengthy bike rides to make, and the peace and quiet to sit down and finally finish that book that’s been taking up space on the nightstand… If switching off completely doesn’t quite fit the bill, never fear: the site regularly runs a whole host of craft courses, from soap and candle making to beekeeping (just remember to ask ahead about what will be running during your stay).

The site is also home to a woodfired pizza oven – just let the site team know if you want to join in and fresh pizza and salad will be ready for your arrival.

The site’s also within half an hour of Thetford Forest, putting guests within easy reach of lots of walks, mountain biking trails and the long-distance Peddars Way. All of that might be hungry work it's handy that there’s a small shop in the farmhouse back on site where honey, homemade bread and homegrown veg can be picked up.

    The best place to get “off” from the world and recharge. This place offers calmness and tranquility that is best for everyone working in the city who is looking for place to relax and allow the children to run around in the greenery.
    We love the sound of wind when it touches the branches of tall trees and the same will wake you up in the morning.
    The facility is limited to few tents which gives you a good distance and not being distracted by other campers.
    The old barn which serves as dining and bar area have rustic designs that really suits the place.
    Highly recommended and will definitely come back!

    Quiet, peaceful glamping site nestled behind a row of poplar trees. Very well equipped bell tent. Lots of thoughtful editions (hot water bottle, extra blankets)
    Shower and toilets set in a beautiful old barn. Clare was very helpful and contacted us prior to our arrival asking if we'd like to re-book as the weather was so bad. We decided to go ahead and were very glad we did. We had a great stay and loved the sound of the popular trees swaying in the wind and the rain on canvas.

    What's not to like about staying here!! Friendly greeting, very helpful, beautiful setting, amazing bell tent, good facilities, lovely warming firepit with logs and they had even put up decorations for my partner's birthday as we were there to celebrate it. Toilets and showers were clean and well stocked. Choice of a wood fired pizza was brilliant however we had already eaten. They also found a birthday candle for me to put in the cake I'd brought with us as I'd forgotten it! Hammocks were very inviting too. All you could hear was the wind in the trees, birds chirping, ducks quacking and nothing else. Honestly felt like a remedy to both myself and my partner after a tough year. Great idea to leave some of the grasses to grow taller to encourage wildlife and it certainly did that with numerous butterflies fluttering about, dragonfly shooting past us and bees going mad everywhere. Definitely want to go back and for longer next time!!

    Bedding has a slight mark on it which we couldn't figure out what it was but didn't bother us that much. I also kept an eye on some of the spiders that were at the very top of the bell tent!!

From the manager...

Dear Michelle ,
Sorry to hear you had a slight mark on bedding, next time please highlight this immediately to the team and we will replace. We like to ensure our guests are 100% satisfied with cleanliness.

Local attractions

Attention all fishing fans angling for a real catch of a getaway: will proximity to the well-stocked and spectacularly scenic Loch Neaton fishing lake (a mere 10-minute drive from base) prove to be enough of a lure? Claim yourself a corner of riverbank and cast a line to try and land carp, bream, perch, roach, rudd, tench or pike in a lucky catch.

Not everyone’s a fan of quiet afternoons with rod and reel, of course. Not to worry, there's plenty more around… The Norfolk coast is about an hour’s drive away – head to Holkham beach for swimming and sandy strolls, or make Great Yarmouth the target if the family likes its beaches with a side order of zoo, aquarium, model village, pleasure pier and casino.

History hounds will be well-served hereabouts. The market town of Hingham is 15 minutes from the site and is chock-full of stunning Georgian architecture to gaze upon, and the spectacular moated Oxburgh Hall is half an hour away. Prefer to be nosing around in the much more distant past? The Neolithic flint mine Grime’s Graves is well worth a pitstop.

Anyone needing a day of shopping and culture should get in the car for the 50-minute drive to Norwich city centre to explore England’s biggest six-day indoor market and check some of the Norwich 12 (the city’s most iconic buildings) off the list.

Must see

  • Castle Acre Castle (10.7 miles)
  • Grimes Graves (11.6 miles)
  • Banham Zoo (12.2 miles)
