Absolute low-impact luxury, with the perfect suggestion of adventure. And guinea pigs.
They say that anyone can love the mountains, but it takes a soul to love the prairie. Well, Norfolk is that prairie, with its majestically flat landscape and never-ending skies. And by the end of your stay at Wild Luxury, you’ll feel like a special soul indeed. Step into your lodge to be engulfed by the earthy scents of pine and cedar wood. From the floor, to the furniture, to the cabin bed – everything has been hobbitly hewn from natural materials. You even burn wood on your very own range. The seven lodges are completely off-grid. There’s no electricity, and all the water is stored on site – in fact, for five months of the year there’s nothing here but grass and badgers. So in many ways this is wild camping, but there’s nothing wild about having your own hot shower and flushing toilet, no siree. Dragging yourself away from your luxury lodge seems foolhardy, but it’s worth it to discover that the whole of North Norfolk is right on your doorstep. Not only are there miles of beautiful coastline to explore, but endless inland diversions involving shire horses, country piles and adventure playgrounds, too. Back at camp, kids are in their element – there are guinea pigs to cuddle, chickens to chase and making friends is a doddle. There’s plenty of space in front of the lodges for minors to mingle, and evenings spent around the communal campfire are encouraged. So, just relax on the deck of your safari lodge, glass of wine in hand and take a good long look at that breathtaking sunset in the endless expanse of Norfolk sky… It’s a bit good, isn’t it?

The Owner Says

Two award-winning beautifully tranquil luxury camps right on the Norfolk coast. The Hideaway has acres of open space, fantastic for young families and romantic couples. Thornham Bay camp  is right down by the beach and a short stroll to a farm and craft shops, yurt bistro, restaurants, local deli and 3 great pubs.

All lodges are warm and cosy with master as well as twin or bunk bedrooms and also our very popular sleeping cupboard with ample room for two (or more!). There is also dining and living areas, sun deck and your own flushing loo and hot shower within the lodge. Kitchens are fitted with a wood-burning range cooker, cool-box, kitchen sink, dresser and a gas stove. Lodges are well-spaced and we will arrange adjacent accommodation if travelling in a group.

Everything you will need for your stay down to cutlery and utensils is provided. All lodges have electric lighting and an initial supply of candles. Cooking and heating is provided by wood-burning ranges that make our lodges warm and cosy.

As a family holiday destination, Norfolk fits the bill perhaps better than any other English county. Its long, sandy coast provides ample opportunities for days at the beach; the abundant wildlife can be explored by boat; and cycling through the picturesque landscape of undulating fields, flint cottages and salt marshland is gentle thanks to the flat terrain.

As if that's not enough, the coast is dotted with grand stately homes, ruined castles, quaint country pubs and lovely cafes. As a major area for visitors there are great days out from Bewilderwood and the Dinasaur Park to seal trips or visit all the favourite rides at the fair!

Best fun in a great place

Our family went to Wild Luxury Camp in Thornham Bay. We hired the Zambezi tent, which would sleep 10. It was amazing. Well equipped kitchen with all you could possibly need, plenty of wood for the stoves, fully working showers and toilet. Beds all comfy, outside veranda so conducive to see the endless skies. Superb well run place, where nothing is too much trouble. Many wonderful places to visit all around, stunning beaches, quaint villages, great pubs. Seals to see, crabs to catch.... will return very soon.

Rural relaxation

We spent the late May bank holiday weekend at The Hideway with our extended family (19 of us) accommodated in three lodges. It was fantastic! We were 10 adults who could relax knowing that the 9 children (!) aged 3-19 could explore and have fun safely. Without wifi, (hurrah!) the kids absolutely loved visiting the animals, the play area and trips to the woods and the swing ball sets outside each lodge . As adults we enjoyed the freedom to kick back with a cup of tea or glass of wine safe whilst building a fire in the fire pit, preparing food in the well equipped kitchens. We had all taken food, but I wouldn't bother next time as the area is full of amazing farm shops with delicious local produce - you can't beat fresh local asparagus, steamed in butter on your log burning stove! The cool boxes did an admirable job over a warm weekend! So many places to visit locally although personally our two children were just really happy to hang out with the chickens or watching the hares and partridges in the fields. It was great for a family get together and we are looking at going back just the four of us!
