Norfolk Glamping Holidays
Okay, so the cows don’t really disappear – they just come and go as they please via a secret tunnel under the road – but Shane is definitely the greenest campsite owner we’ve met. Not because he looks like Shrek or anything, it’s just that he recycles and repurposes everything. So maybe, in that sense, he’s more like a Womble. Tobermory, perhaps…
Norfolk Glamping & Yurt Holidays, formerly Nature’s Path, was originally just that, a path (well, a tractor track) that ran between Yaxham Waters Holiday Park and the picturesque field beside it. Using no small amount of imagination, Shane dreamed up a bijou glamping idyll. With a few yurts and a railway goods carriage to choose from, it just so happens to be the perfect way to introduce your little ones to the joys of sleeping outdoors.
A welcoming and enthusiastic host, Shane will regale you with the tales of provenance for anything and everything at the site. From the up-cycled Hot Tubs they made using pallets, washing machine drums, to the World War II sand buckets from the roofs of Norwich City Council that now happily serve as ash bins, these items have been given an eco-minded second chance.
The good thing about being so close to a large holiday park is that its facilities are at your disposal. There are various farm animals to feed, a play area, and well-stocked ponds to fish. Let your lot loose on this site and they’ll just love wombling free.
FacilitiesThere is a well-stocked fishing pond free to fish, a play area and Poppy and Pandora, the pygmy goats, to feed. A new facilities block has a couple of loos and showers each for men/women and disabled facilities. The holiday park’s well-stocked farm shop refreezes ice blocks. Shane provides enough wood to start the campfire and briquettes for the indoor stoves.
Groups, dogs – yes. Caravans, campervans – no. Tents – no.
Dinosaur Adventure at Weston Park (01603 876310) is a T. rex- cellent day out. There is a children's play area on site but for the best day out with the kids try Bewilderwood. If it rains, there’s a Hollywood Cinema (01362 691133) in Dereham, as well as tenpin bowling at Strikes (01362 696910).
Food & Drink
The onsite farm shop and café will satisfy most, but there’s a Tesco about a mile away in Dereham.
All year round.
Dereham, take the A1075 and follow signs for Watton. At the roundabout with the big Tesco, take the exit onto the B1135, signed for Yaxham. Yaxham Waters Holiday Park is about a mile towards Yaxham, on your right.
From Norwich bus station, you can get the no. 4 to Yaxham, and then walk up the road to the site.
