Tucked away in a tranquil, 5 acre, wildlife-rich woodland of Norfolk close to the pretty village of Briston are two cute shepherd’s huts, Goosewing and Honeysuckle.

The well insulated, toasty warm bespoke huts with comfy double beds and log burning stoves are sister properties, completely independent of each other, each standing in its own pretty woodland clearing. Perfect for couples. Well equipped and beautifully fitted out they make a wonderful base for exploring Norfolk at any time of year. They both have Christmas availability and Goosewing is available for New Year too.

Glamping Norfolk

Norfolk has a diverse range of landscapes, activities and attractions to suit most tastes from the charming countryside and market towns, to the unique man-made Norfolk Broads and historic sites as well as the fabulous wildlife-rich coastal salt marshes and golden beaches.

Windmill at Cley next the Sea

Hire boats at Wroxham just over 20 miles away and set about exploring all or part of the 125 miles of beautiful navigable rivers rich with bird life and dotted with windmills.

Enjoy a great day out on the Bure Valley Steam Railway (less than 13 miles away). Hop on and off the train using the opportunity to walk or cycle on purpose built cycle and footpaths. Bicycle hire is available from Broadland Cycle Hire at Hoveton or from the Canoe Man in Wroxham and can be carried aboard the train.

Glorious Hoveton Hall Gardens with the Kitchen Garden licensed cafe/restaurant are set in a splendid 620-acre parkland estate overlooked by the fine Regency hall 22 miles away.

Planning on some Christmas shopping? Wroxham Barns craft centre is a treasure trove of original and creative souvenirs and gifts as well as providing an excellent restaurant open for breakfast, coffee and cakes, light snacks and lunches and afternoon teas. The Pantry Coffee Shop and Ice-cream Kiosk are popular too.

You will probably need a few days to take in all the delights of  National Trust property Blicking Estate with its magnificent mansion, landscaped gardens and parkland in Norfolk’s Bure Meadows. From 1-10 December the estate will be full of Christmas cheer with a magical light show, mulled wine, seasonal treats and the shop packed with gifts and souvenirs.

Don’t miss a trip to the 18th-century mansion Holkham Hall too. Set in beautiful grounds along the coast at Wells next the Sea there is much to explore and admire. A rolling programme of events take place throughout the year and Christmas promises to be very special. Enjoy candlelight tours of the hall, seasonal opera, craft workshops, cheeky elves and a visit from Santa.

Goosewing and Honeysuckl offer wonderful opportunities for glamping Norfolk and even better, a festive break – Christmas or New Year?  You choose.
