High-end and unforgettable luxury glamping in the North Norfolk countryside
There’s glamping, and then there’s glamping. If you don’t know how to differentiate between the two, then Abbey Farm Glamping will show you; its ultra high-end geodesic domes, luxuriously decorated with all the furnishings you’d expect from a showhome, are as high-end as they come. This is no-expenses-spared accommodation, tucked away in a private patch within seven acres of land, surrounded by North Norfolk countryside.

Typically, glamping provides a midway point between the natural setting of camping and the convenience of booking a hotel. However, in Abbey Farm Glamping’s case, this has all the benefits of a lavishly designed apartment, from a Pinterest-ready seating area and bedroom, a stunning en-suited bathroom, an enviable kitchen and a private garden with a wood-fired hot tub, barbecue, pizza oven, and hammock. Its presentation is truly next level — as is its mezzanine, accessible by a ladder that provides an extra double bed.


Sleeping up to six happy glampers — a maximum of four adults can join, along with their kids — Abbey Farm Glamping presents either the most glamorous camping you will likely have experienced with your significant other, or an idyllic break for a pair of couples, or an unforgettable family trip. Dogs are also welcome, a rare treat for a location as premium as this.


Regardless of who you bring, the location fortunately remains the same. In your immediate periphery is the sprawling countryside, which you’ll share with up to just six other glamping groups in their own domes, ensuring your privacy. Then, beyond the site, the Norfolk coast is easily accessible in a short drive and the likes of Cromer, Sherinham, and Weybourne beach are all within reach. If you’re looking for a more bustling environment, the city of Norwich is less than 20 miles away, while the historic market towns of Holt and Alysham are on your doorstep. However, we couldn’t blame you if you found it difficult to pull yourself away from Abbey Farm Glamping; with a spot this stunning, it’d be a crime to spend too much time away from it.


Details

Facilities

The geodesic glamping domes sleep up to six guests, accommodating for a combination of adults and children, though with four adults maximum. Each dome features a fully-equipped kitchen, a glamorous en-suite bathroom with a heated shower, flushing toilet, and a well-lit mirror for getting ready in the morning. There’s a double bed on the ground level, another on the mezzanine level (though it’s recommended that under 5s do not sleep here, given that it’s accessed by a ladder), and a pull-out double sofa bed downstairs Luxury duvets, linen, towels, and robes are provided with each booking. Each dome is equipped with a 40-inch smart TV with Freeview, while free WiFi is also supplied. There’s also a private garden to give you your own outdoor space, outfitted with a barbecue, pizza oven, and seating, with the optional addition of a wood-fired hot tub that can be added at the time of booking or after by contacting the site.

Abbey Farm Glamping is an excellent spot to access the Norfolk coast. The sandy Sheringham Beach has blue Flag status and is just a 15-minute drive from the site, providing a family-friendly beach with swathes of sand to enjoy at low-tide. Weybourne Beach is a 25-minute drive away, offering a peaceful shingle beach with a cliff backdrop and deep waters that make it a popular spot for sea fishing. Cromer Beach is another one of the few Blue Flag beaches along the Norfolk Coast, its well-maintained stretches of sands making it a popular destination.


Outside of beaches, Blickling Estate (01263 738030) is a 10 -minute drive away, a stunning mansion with a 55-acre formal garden to explore, along with 4,600 acres of woodland, parkland, and farmland encircling it. Felbrigg Hall (01263 837444) is another National Trust site that’s also 10 minutes away, with an orangery to explore with roots in the 18th century, a good spot for dog-walking, and luxurious and historically significant rooms to explore.


Food & Drink

Dining and drinks packages are both purchasable from your hosts ahead of time or after you’ve arrived, with Abbey Farm Glamping offering a “food and drink inclusive” option that includes pizza making kits, barbecue kits, and drinks supplied by a local brewery, gin company, wine company, and with soft drinks options. As such, if you don’t want to explore the local area for places to eat and drink, all of that can be supplied right at your doorstep.

Elsewhere, The Black Boys Aldborough (01263761649) serves top-notch pub food in a traditional country pub with good portions, and at less than a 10-minute drive away, deserves a visit if you’re looking to eat out. The Banningham Crown (01263 733534) is also less than 10 minutes away, with this 17th century timbered inn providing log fires in the winter, along with a nice garden and patio area in the summer. For something a little fancier, head to the posh pub that is The Gunton Arms (01263832010), a little under five miles away and famous for its location within a 1,000-acre deer park — expect to see some roaming as you eat.
