Amber's Bell Tent Camping at Wiveton Hall

UK England East Anglia Norfolk Holt

Wiveton Hall, 1 Marsh Ln, Wiveton, Holt NR25 7TE

Luxury bell tent glamping on the North Norfolk Coast within the grounds of a 17th-century manor house
Sitting on the final frontier between land and sea, Wiveton Hall is one of the North Norfolk coast’s most undiscovered gems. As if marking the point where the country dissolves into the sea, its partially wooded boundary stops where tidal streams begin, running through puddled fields towards the sea. Walk in one direction and you’re flanked by fields of golden wheat, in the other and its marshland, semi-submerged at high tide and speckled with sanfire, dune grass and seaweed.

The hall itself is a gorgeous flint-faced home built in 1652 and presiding over the surrounding land like a wise, old Grandfather. Before it spreads an eclectic mix of younger enterprises – there’s an excellent café, a pick-your-own fruit farm, an art barn, shop and roadside stall, plus the house gardens, which can be explored for £2.50. But best of all, thanks to Amber Wykes, there’s now a dainty little campsite too!

Comprised of just six fully furnished bell tents, the Wiveton Hall site is on the smaller end of the camping scale, with up to five people per tent and the opportunity to book the entire site to yourselves if you're coming as a group. Even before they were pitched the omens here were good. Amber’s far from new to the scene – she’s been running a glamping site at nearby Mannington Hall for a few years now and its reputation precedes it. This smaller spot down the road now offers more room for her to continue the glamping business without sacrificing the space and privacy that made the first site such a winner.

Inside, the tents include a full double bed for couples or a single bed arrangement for groups, while a wood-burning stove keeps you cosy and warm in the colder months. There are rugs, fairy lights, lanterns and a cool box, plus a hamper of vintage inspired cooking wares that includes everything you could need. Grab some goodies from the farm shop and you’ve got yourselves a feast!

It is ultimately the location, though, that is Amber’s real trump card. The immediate vicinity is appealing for obvious reasons – don’t underestimate the amount of time you can spend nibbling your way through the strawberry fields and canes of homegrown raspberries! But even once your drag yourself away from Wiveton Hall there is plenty to do nearby. The villages of Cley, Wiveton and Blakeney are all within easy walking distance and you’ll have to roll a dice to decide between the six pubs within a mile of the site. By car, meanwhile, the best beaches on the coast are all just five or ten minutes away – Holkham, Wells and Brancaster beaches, to name but a few – or take the ferry out from Morston to Blakeney Point and spy on the largest seal colony in England. It’s a truly remarkable site and extra special in spring and early summer when dozens of seal pups join the older tribe.

The Owner Says

Beautiful, vintage inspired family sized bell tents in the grounds of Wiveton Hall. Situated on the North Norfolk coast between Blakeney and Cley-next-the-Sea, Wiveton Hall is a dreamy, flint-faced, Dutch-gabled, Jacobean manor house built in the 17th century. Its unique atmosphere, combined with the fabulous fresh food on offer in the café, make it one North Norfolk’s favourite venues. There’s a pick-your-own fruit farm, a vibrant café, a wonderful shop, regular events, art exhibitions and beautiful gardens.

A wonderful weekend with friends

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend with friends at Amber's Bell Tents at Wiveton Hall. It was the perfect setting, so well located to the coast and nearby towns and pub all in walking distance as well and the beautiful tents themselves. They were well equipped and very comfortable. Having the honesty shop was really handy. We also had a lovely breakfast in the cafe who coped so well with 14 of us! Thank you so much, we will be back.

Fabulous party, taking all tents

Not only a fabulous location in North Norfolk but a small and sensational campsite. The attention to detail is amazing, both in functionality and looks. From the curved paths cut through long grass to flowers in vases in the tents and even the loos, it is as good as the photos show. And with the honesty shop and well kitted out tents, there was nothing we needed that we couldn't get hold of. Would highly recommend.
