Wiveton Hall 

ABTC at Wiveton Hall....Wiveton Hall Farm lays between the fishing hamlets of Cley and Blakeney on the stunning North Norfolk Coastline. The house is a dreamy, flint-faced Dutch-gabled, Jacobean Manor House, built in the 17th century.  This is an English stately home and working farm. The unique atmosphere combined with the fabulous fresh food available to eat in the wonderful quirky cafe, or al fresco under the pines with sea views over the marshes, make it one North Norfolk’s favourite foodie venues.   Along with the vibrant award winning cafe, there’s a pick-your-own fruit farm running from the asparagus season through to raspberries, a maize maze in July and August, and shop stocked with local plants, produce, and antiques. There are regular art events along with the personal tours that Desmond, Lord of the Manor hosts himself. Not forgetting the garden trails which take you around the grounds of the hall, offering tantalising views of the house, and the sea, and end with the spectacular walled garden, which is a triumph of English blooms in the Summer months.

BOOK HERE!

 

Amid the strawberry fields and raspberry canes live 6 of our cosy stylish cotton bell tents. The site here is more compact. A row of tents twixt with sea marsh and farm land, with the shelter of the forest on either side. With ropes in the trees to swing from, empty boats to set sail in, and the Wiveton Wendy house to reside in, there is imaginative play to be had here for the children. March to the top of Wiveton Hill and roll down the other side. Visit the piggies, watch the farm birds with their chicks. Play hide and seek on the garden paths and get lost in the maize maze. For the grown ups,  stroll to the cafe for breakfast, elevenses, lunch, tea, cake, surf and turf, pizza - rest assured, you are catered for on site here, so take the weight off. Or enjoy your own little sheltered nook of North Norfolk with a camp fire cook up on the camp.

The site literally sits on the coastal path - so you can walk straight onto the marsh and into Blakeney with no roads to pass. From here, the walks open out across the marshes either in a sweeping loop back to Cley and then onto Wiveton, or for more adventurous hikers, to Morston, Stiffkey, Wells and Holkham. The coast hopper bus runs late into the evening so you can enjoy unspoilt coastal path walks, finish with a pint and hop onto the bus back to camp. Cycling? Our partners drop bikes directly to your tents. Take them on the back roads to Holkham and enjoy a ride around the magnificent estate there and onto the infamous beach. Want to get friendly with the locals? Take a seal trip from Morston into Blakeney Point - a 45 minute walk or 5 minute drive from camp. Want to swim? The beach at Cley is a favourite evening swimming spot for locals, who cycle down with their picnics to enjoy the bracing waters. It's a 10 minute cycle ride away, through Cley town and then onto the beach road, stopping off first at Picnic Fayre for some take out Norfolk delights.

Things to be aware of:

No doggies sorry

 

Wiveton Hall is a working farm.  It is beautiful, but do expect evidence of it's working nature including machinery

 

Fruit pickers live in the caravans near by on the site

 

The garden trails, house tours and maize maze are available at an additional charge to Wiveton Hall

 

The cafe is VERY popular and has limited seating.  I would recommend booking - even for breakfast.
