Thatchers Bell Tent | Glamping Holidays

Wild Camping

If you are looking for forest camping, Thatchers welcomes travelers to it tucked away in Thatchers Corner. Tucked away next to a small stream it takes its name from the Norfolk reeds that grow alongside it, used in days gone by for thatching.. You are surrounded by streams and embraced by trees, in the very heart of nature. There is a grassy area surrounding you for your children to play. 

Luxury Camping

Thatcher is a large traditional canvas 5 meter bell tent. As glamping holidays go, this is the perfect Norfolk hideaway. The wooden double bed is ideal for a couple, the extra single bed is then a day-bed, or can be used for children or friends. An additional mattress can be added on request for £40. 


We are a self-catering destination. You'll find everything you need to cook a delicious meal in our Garden Kitchen, along with a wood fired pizza and communal campfire for a chat with your fellow glampers. 

Every Bell Tent has a BBQ (please bring your own coal) and a cool box.

Things to do in Norfolk

Take a stroll around the garden or take a row a boat down the lake. For those who like camping with fires, gaze up at the stars and toast marshmallows around the huge camp fire. When you visit Norfolk, you can't leave without seeing our famous beaches and countless other exciting local attractions. Have a look at our activities menu to see how you can spoil, entertain or even edify yourself and your friends. Camping in Norfolk does not get better than this!

"An excellent experience. The bell tents are spacious and despite horrendous weather, we were never cold in them. Towels, torches and hot water bottles are provided and the beds are really comfy. There is a new shower, loos and bath block with underfloor heating and lots of really hot water! A cooking area has a gas barbeque, gas cooker, real pizza oven, fridges, hot water and plenty of utensils and crockery. There is lots of space for the children to play. Each tent has its own barbeque/fire and logs and kindling are provided. All in all couldn't be bettered."

“What a little gem! We had a wonderful weekend in a Bell Tent – loved the place so much. Bathrooms are amazing and the communal kitchen was so much fun. The breakfast hamper was amazing – so yummy! Please keep it this way – not too big and full of wonderful touches which make this place truly magical”.
