Amazimg Stay!

We enjoyed 6 days at this amazing campsite. The retro airstreamer, bbq and fire pit made a perfect camping experience for our 4 year old. The shower and kitchen facilities were clean to very high standards. The location is perfect for exploring Norfolk!

A wonderful experience!

Accommodation - Bubble Air streamer, Tin Can Camping, Norfolk Loved our stay in the Bubble! Inside the air streamer there was everything we could need to enjoy our holiday. We loved sitting outside having a BBQ then lighting the fire when it got chilly - it was so beautiful when the fairy lights came on. Dan, the host was very friendly and helpful. The information pack written by Emma was the best - so detailed, it really helped us to plan our days. We enjoyed a day at Southwold, went to the harbour for fresh sea food at the Sole bay fish shack then took the boat to the pretty village of Walberswick, we also hired a boat and sailed down the broads stopping to eat our yummy picnic bought from the Earsham Street Deli. On our way home we used our complimentary voucher for brunch at Old Hall Farm - it was gorgeous and I couldn’t leave without getting take out scones with jam and clotted cream. A wonderful experience!

A wonderful glamping experience

We stayed for 5 nights in the Jewel and had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Very different from our usual holidays but we hope to return soon. It was so easy to get a boat on the broads for a day and Southwold was delightful with fish and chips on the beach after a swim, it was very hot!

A wonderful short break in the Bubble!

Perfect short break. The site is just beautiful. The caravans have been restored sympathetically but with some mod cons. The facilities were amongst the best we have ever seen and so clean. Emma sent us a lot of very useful info about the area so we were able to make the most of an area we don’t know. Well worth a visit

Stunning site, perfect holiday

I stayed in The Caravanner with my fiancé for 5 days. The owners have created a little slice of paradise here; the airstream has been lovingly maintained with a cool retro vibe, kept clean and cosy and set in a lovely little orchard lit with festoon lighting and patrolled by a pheasant family and a trio of friendly cats. We loved all of the facilities, and were delighted that there was a huge kitchen, pristine shower room, and electric car charging point on the site. The owners made us feel very welcome, giving fantastic suggestions for restaurants nearby, and offering to pre-light the BBQ for our arrival. We couldn’t have been happier with our stay and hope to visit again soon!
