We are thrilled to be able to introduce you to our new partners at Amber's Bell Tent Camping at Walcis Farm.
Oaks Meadow at Walcis Farm Estate is a typically Norfolk Constabelesque landscape, with lovely hillocks offering uninterrupted views of the river Wensum, which winds its way sleepily through the centre of the site. Six of our cozy, stylish tents inhabit this stunning watery landscape. It is sooo quiet down here. You are literally miles from the nearest road, so the sounds of nature abound. The meadows themselves offer a wonderful open space for roaming and play and the surrounding estate attracts walkers and wildlife enthusiasts.
But it is the river which is the star attraction here. With a launch from which to access the crystal clear water for a spot of wild swimming or canoeing, you can lose yourselves in dreamy days spent messing about by the river. Need supplies walk along the riverside path which takes you to nearby Lyng, or for added adventure, canoe there. The estate has an established 1920’s hotel on it’s perimeter where you can safely cycle to for a roast, and private carp fishing is available on the estate by appointment. Leave your car and life at the gates, and take a dive deep into nature.
