About Wild Meadow, Raynham Estate

The Raynham Estate stretches to more than 800 acres. You can explore much of it on waymarked paths which take you through fields, woodland and along the banks of the River Wensum. The historic house and gardens at the centre of the estate are opened to the public, usually once a month, for pre-booked tours only. Check directly to see if one coincides with your stay. The North Norfolk coast is a 20-minute drive away with Holkham, Wells-Next-The-Sea, Burnham Ovary Staithe and Brancaster all popular places to visit. Houghton Hall (01485 528569), built for England’s first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole, is nine miles away and Sandringham, the Queen’s country estate (01485 545400), is 16 miles away. There’s more history at Castle Acre Priory (01760 755394) nine miles from Wild Meadow. For wildlife lovers, Pensthorpe Natural Park is just five miles from Wild Meadow (01328 851465) with conservation gardens, wildlife walks and natural play areas for kids and then there are the RSPB reserves at Titchwell and Snettisham (on the coast, both around 20 miles). The Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Cley Marshes (01263 740008) is another renowned birdwatching site, with a great bird-hide-shaped café and visitor centre there overlooking the marshes – the neighbouring village of Blakeney is the place to head to for seal-watching boat trips.

Great stay in a wonderful location

We stayed in a yurt at Wild Meadows for three nights in August 2021. We had a great time - the yurts were very comfortable for a family of four. The toilets, kitchens and showers were clean and well maintained, and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are plenty of areas to explore locally around the estate and the beyond. We visited the wonderful Norfolk coast, Pensthorpe Nature Reserve (with great outdoor play area) and Thetford Forest. Couldn't recommend the place more.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the sunset

We spent a week at wild meadow and had an awesome time. From the minute we arrived we were greeted and made to feel welcome. Nothing was too much hassle. The yurt was beautiful inside and the beds were amazingly comfortable. Our two boys slept in later than at home. It can be lighter in the summer evenings inside the yurt due to the skylight but you soon get used to it. Also worth lighting a fire to take the chill off later in the evening since the temperatures drop quickly and can get chilly, but adds to the atmosphere. Logs and kindling are available from the team on request. Having your own toilet, shower and kitchen area is a real plus, and makes the whole experience even better, especially post COVID. Our boys spent a lot of time just running around the woods and meadows. It’s very quiet and safe and a great place for kids to be free and enjoy the countryside. We walked on the local footpaths and visited the local pubs for dinner, all were excellent and within 10-15mins. Also pensthorpe is a must, the children had loads to do and was a great day out. Overall we had a lovely week. The weather was hit and miss but guess that’s always the risk however there were plenty of things to do locally including the beach, Holkham Hall, Sealife centre, cycling and walking. All in all a great place and lovely holiday. Family of 4 with 2 children 4&6yrs

Getting There

The Raynham Estate is just off the A1065 between Swaffham and Fakenham. There are several entrances so look for signs specifically for Wild Meadow. The meadow itself is car free. Wheelbarrows are provided to take your luggage from your car to your pitch, a walk of no more than 40 or 50 metres.

The closest mainline train station is at Kings Lynn, 20 miles away. Onwards travel by bus is possible but lengthy. A better alternative would be to travel by taxi from the rank at the station.
