Escape to a simpler life with Rory

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 Holt and seaside towns such as Cromer and Blakeney. Your hosts are farmers Rory and Paula, 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.

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.

What to do at Heydon Grove Farm

When you wake up in the morning from your comfy beds, collect some fresh eggs from the chickens for your cooked 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 bike, either bring you own or hire them from the farm.

Going without electricity is our greatest luxury

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

Ask the farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about what goes on at the farm at any time.

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.

There’s plenty to do on the farm like collect eggs but you won’t want to miss the coast here, just a short drive away.

We had a lovely stay at Heydon Grove Farm. It’s a perfect location to explore all of the fun things for children to do nearby, and the farmer was very attentive to our needs. There’s a great little play area for kids and the farmhouse shower blocks are amazing!

This site is very small with virtually no room for the children to literally throw a ball. Don't bother paying extra for your own private shower like we did. Ours was the only outdoor shower and we paid extra. The others had their facilities in a hut with large sink ,mirror and shower. We had to wash up brush our teeth etc all in the same sink. No sink in toilet at this site. The farmer has put in ponies at top and came to visit us most days in the evening. It's a good location for beaches but it was very windy in the tent.

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!
