About Keepers Meadow

Suitable For

Glamping only. Groups – yes. Dogs – no. 


Canoes can be hired and delivered to the site to dabble on the River Bure. Or why not take off on one of the local footpaths through the surrounding countryside. It's a 10-minute walk to Buxton Station (01263 733858) – hop aboard a steam train on the Bure Valley Railway and whistle south into the Norfolk Broads. Just outside the pretty village of Horning, Bewilderwood (01692 633033) is a particularly popular family attraction. Based on the series of books by local author Tom Blofeld, it brings the watery environment of the Broads to life – both as a land of make-believe and an overgrown adventure playground full of rope bridges, ladders, zip wires and tree houses. For more 'grown up' Norfolk culture, try a visit to Blickling Hall (01263 738030), probably the finest Jacobean mansion in Norfolk. With craft shops, beauty salons, eateries, mini golf, a petting zoo and fun fair (throughout August), Wroxham Barns (01603 783762) has plenty to offer for both young and old alike. For a day at the seaside Great Yarmouth (about 35 mins away) Cromer (25 mins) are your best bet – the latter is home to a sandy beach and a charming old pier. 

Food & Drink

The nearest watering hole is around 4 miles away by car in Skeyton. It's called The Goat Inn (01692 538600) and is a beautiful, thatched 16th-century pub, family run and serving great food. Other top picks nearby include The Black Boys (01263 732122) in Aylsham and The Fox (01603 755362) in Hevingham
, each a within a 10-minute drive. The Crown (01263 733534) at Banningham is another excellent local (5 miles away). For fish and chips, the Buxton Fried Fish and Chip Shop (01603 278256) takes some beating.

Fabulous stay at the Chestnut tent

We loved the accommodation. Perfect for our family of 5 needs. The attention to detail surpassed our expectations and really enhanced our stay. We had brought chairs but didn’t need them as they were already provided. We were delighted that there was a fire pit and reasonably priced wood. We also loved the wood burner in the tent and the fairy lights were magical. The beds were warm and very comfortable. It was everything we could have wished for and more. We enjoyed canoeing one day and also cycling weaver’s way, returning by steam train. We recommend eating at The Goat and The Black Boys locally. The hosts were friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning.

AMAZING - Peaceful, relaxing and friendly

A brilliant find and i'd highly recommend! The owners were absolutely lovely and on hand for anything I needed. The facilities were definitely a luxury and very much appreciated. I enjoyed the convenience of being able to keep my toiletries in the private bathroom and having a small private kitchen area. The location was absolutely wonderful with lots of local walks and things to go see and do in the local area. I'll definitely be back

Camping at its best

Just returned from six days at Keepers Meadow. What a fantastic set-up, perfect for the three of us (Ben’s 3) but would be great for bigger families too. The tents themselves are just right - space, storage, lighting (not your standard camping - much more like a canvas hotel room) with a wood burning stove that (once mastered!) warms up the space nicely for bed time. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are perfect, one per tent so in the current situation keeps you confident that you’re safe and distanced. Equally, it was nice to have neighbours to say hi too, without compromising each other’s space. Michelle and Gary look after the site, and the visitors, brilliantly from the welcome to the farewell. Thanks both for a lovely week - just what we needed.

Glamping at its best!

We have just returned from another wonderful weekend at Keepers Meadow. We booked all three tents for the family - what a great way to spend time together! Our hosts, Gary and Michelle have managed the current situation really well. As usual, nothing was too much trouble. The children had a lovely time playing cricket and football and running around the site - so safe for our 18 month old. We did a scavenger hunt through the woods which was great fun. This year, we had a day out to nearby Bewilderwood - fab for the children. Lovely evenings spent around the campfire toasting marshmallows and sharing many laughs. We have already booked for next year! Thank you so much Gary and Michelle.

This really is a lovely place to stay. The bell tents were very spacious; we stayed as a family of 5 and there was plenty of room, much more than we had anticipated. The kitchens were exceptionally well equipped and the shower rooms were lovely. Gary and Michelle could not do enough for us. The local area is lovely; 30 minutes to the beaches at Mundesley or West Runton; 20 minutes to Wroxham and the Norfolk Broads; and lots of lovely walking or canoeing to be done along the river Bure. A 5 minute walk from the campsite, you reach a millpond, which is a lovely place for the kids to splash about and play in the water. We had a truly wonderful stay.
