The 1940's Showman's - one of only 3 usable ones left by the maker James Hird

General

  • Small, quiet and comfortable Norfolk woodland site
  • Luxury accommodation with soft mattresses, fruit bowls and firepits
  • Shop selling local honey, fresh eggs and barista coffees

Forests, fens, catfish and.... sitcom history? See the lot on this fab Norfolk spot.

The team at Oak Lodge Glamping is big on the little details and that’s one of the reasons why this peaceful site just outside the village of Northwold gets the many a thumbs-up from its visitors. This is back to nature stuff indeed... how could it be otherwise when you’re staying in a lush meadow surrounded by oak and beech trees...?

But it’s back to nature without the bad backs: luxury accommodation, soft mattresses, fairy lights and fruit bowls inside, and firepits and barbecues for your own use outside. The shop provides basic supplies, local honey and fresh eggs, tea and barista coffees and cold drinks; you can buy kindling and firewood for your outdoor feasts as well. And as for the amenities? The washrooms get warm reviews as well, for their spacious tiled showers inside a log cabin among the trees.

A walk of 20 minutes across the fields (or a five-minute drive) fetches you up in Northwold, a little village with a lot to do. Elsewhere around, anglers can head to Fendick Fisheries where the lakes are stuffed with carp and catfish; browsers can fill their boots at the Bulldog Barns where 30-plus dealers offer everything retro, vintage, recycled and shabby chic, while those less concerned about interiors can get their warpaint on at Combat Paintball.

And that sitcom theme? Fans of vintage British comedy can drop into the Dad's Army Museum at Thetford, half an hour's drive away.

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Local attractions

Family-friendly pubs with food are close to hand, a popular choice being the Crown Hotel in Mundford 10 minutes’ drive away. There’s an added bonus at the Bridge House Hotel in Brandon (15 minutes); hire rowing boats there to venture down the Little Ouse past water birds and weeping willows.

Thetford (half an hour) is where to head for shops and supermarkets but it’s a town worth lingering in too. Visit the Ancient House Museum of Thetford Life to see how the Tudors did things, get contemplative in the ruins of the medieval priory... then spend some time in the Dad’s Army Museum to see a towering collection of sitcom memorabilia.

Next door, Thetford Forest Park is brimming with walking trails and cycle paths; you can hire bikes here, but if you’re less energetically inclined, see the forest on a Segway. Or for an extreme view of this ancient bit of woodland and beyond, see it from the treetop rope trails at Go Ape Thetford.

It’s a 50-minute drive to the coast and The Wash National Nature Reserve, a fab marshland wilderness where footpaths go past flocks of wading birds under massive skies; head to Hunstanton for the beach and boats out to the grey seal colonies.

Must see
