Brambells Glamping, Buildings Farm, Pit Road, Burgh St. Peter NR34 0BG
Family-run Buildings Farm has seen the full agricultural spectrum over the years. It’s gone from pigs and cows and herdsmen out in the fields, to modern day tractors and a working livery yard. Today, most of the 180 acres have been sewn for crop production – golden barley and oats ripple in the breeze and peas grow green in summer – but a picturesque four-acre patch has also been set aside for something very special indeed… A brand new glamping site.
Brambells Glamping is managed by the current generation of farmers, Tom, who tends to the crops, and Holly, who also looks after the livery yard, aided by their four young children. The meadow space plays host to just three specially designed Lotus Belle tents, each in their own private space. One sits tucked in the edge of a patch of woodland, with splintered views across an open wild-flower meadow, while a second is hidden deeper among the tees, dappled shade dancing across the tent’s creamy canvas. The third tent is in an open meadow, beside a small pond and has been specially designed to make the most of the dark Norfolk skies. Roll back a section of canvas in the roof and in-built ceiling windows provide views of the stars above. When the sky is clear it’s spectacular.
For extra seclusion, the site also has a fourth, ‘secret’ pitch overlooking the marshes and reached via a short tractor and trailer ride. Once there, you’re unlikely to be disturbed and the wildlife watching is tremendous. It does require a slightly longer walk back to the shower facilities, though – each tent has its own private, luxury shower room – but since, like all the tents, it has its own toilet directly alongside, a walk to the shower is a small price to pay.
The tents themselves are furnished with all the essentials you’ll need. There are beds (bedding and linen supplied), blankets, hot water bottles, a wood-burning stove and re-chargeable lighting, while the outdoor kitchen comes with all the pots, pans, crockery and utensils required. Fire up the gas barbecue or light a campfire and you’ll be whipping up some camping cuisine in no time.
For those at the main three pitches there’s an easy 10-minute walk out to the marshes, emerging from the woods into a vast area of open plains, overlooking the Norfolk Broads. By car (or bike) you can head north into the national park itself and rent canoes to really explore the landscape or, if you don’t want to over exert yourself, take a boat tour from nearby Beccles. While there, the market town deserves a spell of your time. The church’s 16th-century Gothic bell tower dominates the main high-street – The Walk – with a cluster of pleasant, independent shops and cafés, while further afield the beaches of the Suffolk coast await.

The wildflower meadows and woodland offer a true escape from today’s hustle and bustle, yet the surrounding area has enough to keep the busiest bee buzzing.
Fantastic glamping experience!
We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of June and wished we could have stayed longer! Our bell tent was enormous and really comfortable with lots of lovely extra touches to make our stay warm, cosy and comfortable. The facilities are great, including our own bathroom with hot, luxury shower. Tom and Holly were really friendly but unobtrusive - they were there if we needed them but left us in peace to enjoy the lovely surroundings. Brambells farm is a wonderful place to stay, with views across the fields and lots of friendly animals who made the experience even more enjoyable (we especially liked wandering over to see the horses and saying hello to the cute little pigs!) Brambells Glamping is highly recommended - we would certainly stay again. Many thanks!
We spent a weekend there in the Butter Cup and it was amazing! Holly and Tom are great hosts, they made us feel conformable at the place, but were always available when we needed! The place is amazing, great views, the tent is nicely decorated, comfortable bed, hot showers, they have all the cutlery needed, and everything is as clean as it can be! We had a wonderful time, definitely want to go back and recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy some fresh air!
Peaceful weekend away
We stayed at Brambells in early June at the Marsh View site. We were wanting a quiet weekend away from London and were not disappointed. This site is literally on the edge of a Marsh paddock and has no road access so you are very secluded. The site was well equipped with all we needed to cook meals and the tent was cosy and homely with thoughtful touches such as champagne and blankets. The shower room is back at the main site (about a 10-15 min walk along a leafy country track) and is modern and clean. Tom and Holly were great hosts- responsive to questions yet let you have privacy. They went out of their way to assist when we required little necessities such as insect repellent. This is a cute spot in a lovely area with lots to do if you have a car. Definitely recommend!
Cosy & quiet
Although we were unlucky with the weather(heavy rain for 2 nights) the logburner,duvet,comfy bed and lights made it very cosy. Our one good day weatherwise was spent doing a circular walk from nearby River Waveney Centre to Oulton Broads around marshes full of birdlife. Tom & Holly were most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of nice touches from mini bottles of prosecco to cake on arrival. Very peaceful,only birdsong and the odd neigh from one of the horses ! I'm sure we'll be back.

Fab stay !
We arrived at the campsite late in the dark of evening, very tired . We were warmly greeted by the owners who showed us to our tent , bed all made up and lights on !. The hospitality at this site is excellent. The owners are friendly, their pigs, Horses and cats are friendly.. Our young daughter quickly made friends with the owners children and set off on her own adventures. we were made to feel welcome! great walks , we found the river centre a great walk as this has a pub by the river so you can watch the boats or hire one ! we will next time a must ! . We took another walk to their private marshes these have to be seen ! take a picnic and binoculars so much wildlife !. One of the evenings provided a crystal clear night sky where shooting stars could be seen by the naked eye I totally recommend the tent we stayed in the STAR GAZER ! this tent has clear roof panels so you can fall asleep looking at the stars ! . A campsite well worth another visit.
