Escape to a simpler life with Rory and Hazel

We have been looking for a Feather Down in north Norfolk for years and in 2021 we found this gem! Heydon Grove is not far from Burnham Market, Holt and the seaside towns of Holkham, Wells-next-the-sea, Cromer and Blakeney. Your hosts are farmers Rory and Hazel, with family members Richard and Jackie also close at hand to make your stay a warm and hospitable one at this ideal spot for a family holiday in Norfolk. Their arable farm has been in the family for four generations and it also plays host to cows from some of the neighbouring farms. You'll also find chickens and sheep on the farm / grazing in the meadows with miniature donkeys due to arrive in 2024!

Explore city and coast

Heydon Grove lies down some of the prettiest lost lanes of Norfolk, a 20 minute walk from Heydon with the Earle Arms, voted runner-up in Best Country Pub of the Year by the BBC. The medieval city of Norwich with a church for every week of the year is only 30 minutes away but it is the coast that beckons most Feather Down guests that stay here - there couldn't be a better base for a family holiday in Norfolk. Villages with names like Cley-next-the-Sea and Wells-next-the Sea promise so much and deliver in buckets (and spades) on the North Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Known as Chelsea-on-Sea, Burnham Market is just a short drive away and was named as one of the poshest places to be by The Times in January 2023. Norfolk is known for being a dog-friendly county, and has many great beaches for your dog to run free. You can also explore the Norfolk Broads National Park from the farm or for a family attraction, visit BeWILDerwood for an adventurous day out!

What to do at Heydon Grove Farm

When you wake up in the morning from your comfy beds, cook some fresh eggs for your breakfast on the wood-burning stove - save the barbecue boxes from the honesty shop for later. You can discover the prettiest lanes around the farm by foot or bike (bring your own). For more fun, there's an outdoor playground at the farm as well as a covered sandpit area, perfect for hours of entertainment!

The safari tents with cupboard beds and built in bunks were magic, and the candles above the table made it feel all twinkly and magical too. We even saw shooting stars and a barn owl one night.

Fabulous escape from electronics and way to get back to the simple life. The kids had a brilliant time and I actually read a physical book!

Heydon Farm was a great location to base ourselves for our Norfolk holiday. With only 4 tents it was a nice quiet site overlooking a field of cows as our neighbours. I loved the fact we had our own allocated shower so could leave our wash things up there. The honest shop was perfect for a last minute purchase of marshmallows & hot chocolate, as well as having power to charge my phone. There was plenty to do in the local area within a 30 min drive so a perfect staycation. A new espresso bar has just opened in the village so is perfect for those who need coffee but don't want to wait for the stove to wam up as well having some lovely pastries & cakes.

Great way to switch off from all the pressures of our busy lives back home! So relaxing, location is great, being in nature, kids had the best time too! Having an honesty shop pn site is a brilliant feature. The tent is a good size, great that it is dark at night with the blackout windows as kids slept in compared to staying in a traditional tent! The park and kids toys on site are a brilliant addition. Lovely to wake up to the cows each morning!

We had a lovely weekend in Heydon Farm. As always with feather down the accommodation was great and the location super nice to visit North Norfolk. With our children we spent a day at Bewildered wood which was amazing.

We had a fabulous holiday. Farmer Rory and Hazel could not have been more welcoming and kind,- they even came to give tractor rides. Heydon is in a great location to see all of North Nofolk, half an hour from the coast and the Broads. The highlight of the holiday for my son was the chickens. He loved checking the coop every day for eggs. We will be back.

Fantastic breakaway! The site is perfect for families, with a little play park on site! Site host Rory was helpful and came to welcome us on our arrival, he also go through pizza oven fired up on the Saturday night too… this was our first family glamping trip and it was ideal! Our son loved the adventure so it something we’ll continue doing! Highly recommend Heydon Grove Farm site.

The facilities here are amazing. The showers are close by and easily accessible. It was a really nice touch to have a whole family room allocated to our tent so no sharing! The electric shower and hairdryer were bliss after a long day! The site is very quiet and well positioned away from the road. The children’s play area is big enough to entertain children for their stay. The honesty shop is well stocked and comes with cubby boxes for phone charging. The farmer was polite and considerate, coming to see if we were ok during our stay. This is one of the nicer sites we have stayed at and would recommend highly. If you are new to Featherdown be sure to ask for guidance on what to do before you get there!

Meet your hosts

Rory and Hazel

Welcome to Heydon Grove farm, we are proud to be the first Feather Down in north Norfolk.

There’s plenty to do on the farm with the play area and sheep, but you won’t want to miss the coast here, it's just a short drive away.

Highlight

Pizza night

The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street

Highlight

The farm shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.
