- Adults-only shepherd's huts a short walk from the edge of The Broads
- A 20-minute drive to Norwich or Great Yarmouth
- Kingsize bed, ensuite shower room, kitchen and woodburning stove
Dreaming of a place where you can escape for a cosy break with your other half – and no kids? You can turn that idea into reality at Manor Farm Retreats, an adults-only glampsite in the Norfolk countryside just outside The Broads and about a 20-minute drive from both Norwich and the coast.
There’s just a small number of shepherd’s huts on site here, and each of them has been done up to a very high standard, with a kingsize bed, an ensuite shower and toilet and a kitchen area (with an induction hob, microwave and fridge). Underfloor heating and a woodburning stove should ensure that you’re never chilly while cuddling up inside your cute little hut.
This setting is all about soaking up the local landscape and rural peace that goes with it – the huts have been set up in the estate’s woodland, with views over pasture that’s grazed by horses. It’s a great backdrop to drinks or dinner at your private outdoor eating area (although there is also a dining table inside for damp days). The whole site is a kid-free zone but dogs are welcome to join you on your break if you wish.
You may well decide to spend the bulk of your break simply relaxing in this lovely location, but when you do decide to venture out there are plenty of attractions around: this area is well known for walks, bike rides, fishing and country pubs, and you can stroll down to the edge of the scenic Norfolk Broads in 10 minutes or so. Alongside that, nature reserves, beaches, museums and golf courses aren’t far away either.

The main attraction around here has to be The Broads – stay at Manor Farm and you’ll be a mile or so from its main waterway, the River Yare, which you might like to explore by hiring a boat from Brundall (10 minutes’ drive). Unsurprisingly, this is a popular area for wildlife – one of the best places for sightings is RSPB Strumpshaw Fen (10 minutes).
Follow the river all the way along (perhaps on the train that runs from nearby Cantley) and you’ll get to Great Yarmouth (20 minutes), where you can spend the day on the beach or visit the Sea Life Centre. For other animal attractions nearby, try Africa Alive! or Banham Zoo (both 45 minutes).
Other days out in the area might take you to Strumpshaw Hall Steam Museum (10 minutes), to explore the historic streets of Norwich (20 minutes), to play a seaside round of golf in Gorleston (25 minutes) or to admire the painted ceilings and elegant gardens of the Blickling Estate (40 minutes).
