Norfolk glamping family holidays on the farm | Feather Down

Norfolk glamping

Norfolk glamping with Feather Down farms

If you long for rural peace and quiet away from the noisy city, treat yourself to a Norfolk glamping family holiday on a Feather Down farm. From the magical waterways of the Broads to the fabulous coastlines, the county is a paradise of unspoiled countryside…

Norfolk’s wonderful wetlands

With well over a hundred miles of waterways to enjoy, the Broads offer the perfect escapist retreat, whether you’re exploring by motor cruiser, sailboat or canoe. On the way,  you can watch out for the birds that make the riverbank their home, such as the kingfisher and the great crested grebe.

Picturesque towns

A stroll around Norwich’s fine collection of Medieval buildings is a must for history and architecture buffs. A short drive away from the Feather Down location, College Farm, are the famous coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh – an absolute must for a seaside visit and fish and chips!

Feather Down moments

In the evenings, you can cook farm-fresh local produce on a wood burning stove and then dine by candlelight under a starry sky. Just one of the many joys of glamping Norfolk with Feather Down. Why not try it yourself sometime soon?

However, be warned that the kids loved it so much on the Farm, they wanted to make sure they had plenty of time there! Lucy and Marcus were fabulous hosts and gave us plenty of ideas.

  • Lucy provides a very comprehensive folder of things to do and places to go (and avoid!) We found an Italian restaurant, not too far away in Kirby Cane - The Olive Tree where we had an outstanding meal. The ambience was lovely, the service attentive and helpful and the food was just fabulous! Even my ultra picky 11 year old son loved the food so much that he wanted to go back for breakfast! It wasn't cheap, but we felt it was good value for such a memorable meal.

We went to a great butchers and watched our chipolatas be made the old fashioned way and then popped round the corner passed Joules to nutters for local cheese. We went to Bewilderwood, a magical world for little ones. Take a packed lunch. The rest of the time we just loved being on the farm. Eating, drinking and enjoying the animals.

    Lucy & Marcus recommended a number of things for us to do and see and we tried to fit in quite a few of them! So here goes.... we went horse riding on the beach with Pakefield Riding School, Lowestoft. We also went to the locks inn pub which is almost impossible to find (but Lucy's directions were perfect!) and it has to be enjoyed for the best location ever and fun for the kids to play in the garden. can be visited by car or boat!We also went to the beach in Southwold and had lunch at the Red lion Pub which is good pub grub, especially the fish! And then we enjoyed some great shopping in Southwold, where the credit card was truly hiot hard!

    We left early on our arrival day and explored Southwold. Our second day was spent taking a tour of the farm, feeding lambs, meeting the ducklings and enjoying the facilities on the farm. We also borrowed some bikes in order to explore the local area a bit more. On the next day, which was very wet, we hired a boat (with cover!) and took it out to Geldeston Locks for a pub lunch. Finally we took a trip to Walberswick which is very quaint. The children played on the beach there and the crabbing looked fun.

    Crabbing at Walberswick was fabulous and a day to Southwold beach and the pier was great. Lovely shopping there too. Also Aldesborough on the way to the farm was great with fresh sea food to sample. Bewilderwood was a real hit with the children too.

    Southwold for fish and chips on the pier and for sand dunes. Great yarmouth Sea Life Centre is fun with a play area in the cafe. Bewilderwood in Wroxham is great for a day trip.

    We enjoyed a boat ride on the broads one day and a day at Bewilderwood another day. To be honest, the children were just as happy playing at the farm which made it completely relaxing for us the rest of the time!

  • So much to do in the local area and nothing too far, lovely pakefield beach, Africa alive, dinosaur adventure, bewilderwood and amazing southwold to name a few! Fritton lake is a great day out and very inexpensive. Still so much more to see and do.

    If you are staying for more than 2 nights then plan for days out, but if you are going for just a couple of nights, by all means plan for things to see but be prepared for your children to want to stay and play on the farm - we couldn't entice ours away! Lucy and Marcus have provided a folder of things to do and places to eat in each tent if you are a bit stumped for ideas.

    Bring a portable gas stove for a quick cuppa in the morning or for when it's too hot to light the wood burner stove. Must visits are southwold, bewilder wood, dinosaur adventure, Africa alive, fritton lake. Twyfords in beccles for lovely meals. East Anglian transport museum and pakefield beach is lovely.
