It’s a great place to do nothing and get into nature.You can pitch your tent in the bottom field or the woodland beyond, or take up residence in a boutique bell tent or a well-equipped caravan complete with its own outside decking and cooking area. Plus there’s a log cabin for let as two separate units – ideal for a family or small group. They have some ingeniously suspended firepits for cooking, and some of Jonathan’s mates recently built him a fabulous outdoor pizza oven out of recycled materials.
Overall, it’s a site with a lovely chilled-out atmosphere situated in a very special location.

This is a fantastic site, very, very pretty and well run by Jonathan and Phil who are very easy going but accommodating when you have a need.
The showers and toilets are pretty basic but the location is superb and caravans are banned so if you are a proper camper this is a great site. There are plenty of decent pubs and shops nearby. Firepits are available for real fires.
The site is great and very safe for children who have plenty of room, including a woods and playing field, to make their own fun. There are a few homemade swings and he most fantastic natural 'bushcraft' den.
The site is not far from the London/Norwich main line, which can be irksome sometimes but the trains are few and far between, just the odd one very late at night or very early in the morning.
We've been three times now, including a week-long break so it's definitely recommended.
