10 acres of blissful bell tent and gypsy caravan glamping near Thetford Forest in Norfolk

Like all the best glamping sites, it’s difficult to pin down any one thing that makes Oak Lodge Glamping so special. Even the setting is difficult to describe. Like a classic Britney song, it’s ‘not a meadow, not yet a forest’. While there’s ample, open grassy space in which children can run wild and play games, the field is also broken up by an array of well-established trees. They create a real sense of seclusion and nicely divide up the different pitches. Every spot feels private and has its own little mix of sun and shade, yet you never feel hemmed in.

In total there are just 12 pitches across the 10-acre glamping site. Seven spots are occupied by pre-pitched, creamy bell tents, furnished inside with mattresses, bedding and a few homely items like freshly picked flowers, coffee tables and a small chest of drawers. The remaining two spaces, meanwhile, are filled by classic showmans’ waggons; vintage gypsy caravans with metal work that curves and bends your reflection in its shiny metal surface. The shiny finish continues inside, where there are fitted sofas, beds and a vanity area by the window. You have to have a taste for real glamour for it to suit but, if the shine is all too much, then the bell tents will hit the spot perfectly.

Along with old rope swings and special wildlife lookout areas, wisps of smoke indicate that campfires are all a part of the fun here. Every pitch has a firepit and outdoor furniture and a few complimentary logs are supplied on your arrival. If you run out of marshmallows there’s a tiny village post office in Northwold (1 mile away) handily placed next door to the local pub. You can buy a few goodies there for making your evening smores. Or you can gather a little more on any day trips you take. Oak Lodge Glamping has a pretty central Norfolk location, meaning that, beyond the local cycling routes in Thetford Forest and the River Great Ouse, days out in Norwich and exploring the North Norfolk Coast are also less than an hours' drive away.

Wonderful weekend

May 28, 2018 by Shân

My family and I stayed at Oak Lodge for two nights. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the owners who showed us to our tent and the amenities around. They were absolutely lovely people, couldn’t do enough to help. The showers and toilet block are outstanding - immaculately clean and look brand new. The camp itself is well kept and there is a quirky gypsy caravan that provides a small fridge, kettle and crockery that you can share with the other guests on site. Again this is immaculately clean. The owners come past frequently to check everything is ok. Inside the tent was gorgeous, three beds (a double and two singles for the children) and it was decorately beautifully with tea lights, fairy lights and beautiful tables. I would recommend anybody stay here and I am definitely looking to re-book again soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay - outstanding accommodation!

Loved this place, will definately be looking at coming back in the future, the grounds were a lovely setting, lighting up the fire pit at night with a great view of the stars can’t be beaten.


Fun, cosy birthday treat!

Apr 30, 2018 by Sorrell

Myself and three friends came to Oak lodge to celebrate a 30th birthday. We had spent the morning paint balling in Thetford forest and then headed over to the campsite, so it was so lovely to spend the evening chilling, laughing and spending some much needed quality time together. Our tent was immaculate and decorated for the birthday girl. The added marshmallows and wine was an absolute bonus! The toilets and showers were so clean and inviting. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We were given complimentary wood for our fire pit & spend the evening warming ourselves around it and listening to music. I would highly recommend this site to anyone- friends, families and couples.


Fab little stay

We went with three families (8 adults, 7 kids, all under five) over a long weekend and had a great time. Maeve and her partner did their best to look after us and there was plenty of stuff to keep the tots occupied and happy. The caravan with shared kitchen and large outdoor dining table was a bonus.
