    Glamping Reviews
    5/5 shepherds hut review from Naomi G that says "We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in our own cosy Shepherds  Hut. On arrival Nigel was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the  local area and gave some great recommendations for a bite to eat. Our  Shepherds Hut was so cosy and romantic, outside there are hammocks for  relaxing and watching the wildlife over the meadows, and we have a  lovely firepit to BBQ in the evenings.The venue and the facilities are  excellent, we had everything we needed and the added bonus of a  complimentary breakfast basket that was a welcome surprise.We had such  a lovely time and would definitely return next year to enjoy a short  break in the summer time!!"

    "Our Shepherds Hut was so cosy and romantic!"

    5 star Google review from Kim that says "We went glamping here in bell tents (two couples, two bell tents). Very  welcoming, friendly, and helpful people, clean, comfortable amenities and  lovely beach within 3 minutes walk. We very much enjoyed our weekend and  so did our dog!"

    "We very much enjoyed our weekend and so did our dog!"

    Recommended review from David. on Pitchup that says "Stayed in the charming Bluebell shepherds hut, with an ever so relaxing  hanging chair to unwind in and enjoy the view of the field or stars at  night. Nigel was a great host. I wasn't expecting breakfast so a basket of  breakfast goodies left on the balcony was a nice surprise. Bluebell and the  facilities were clean. Near one of those 'wide' sandy beaches of north  Norfolk, great for dog walks in September, and between two RSPB reserves  and other attractions."

    Our Nature Saving Pledge

    Clean Glamping in North Norfolk

    North Norfolk Glamping is all about spending time with your loved ones and reconnecting with nature. And we want nothing more than to share this wonderful part of Norfolk with you and all that nature has to enjoy.

    Here at North Norfolk Glamping, we are committed to respecting the countryside and keeping it clean. We operate under and encourage a leave-no-trace ethos to all our guests, which means that when visiting the countryside you leave no trace of your visit in our North Norfolk site and leave it exactly in the state it was when you arrived. It's this way of thinking that we hope to imprint on all who pass through our corner of the world which will help to ensure the protection of our precious countryside and the wildlife that live here.

    The Countryside Code

    The Countryside Code is supported by Natural England.

    Protect The Environment

    • Take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
    • Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
    • Always keep dogs under control and insight
    • Dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
    • Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
    • Enjoy The Outdoors
    • Check your route and local conditions
    • Plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
    • Enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory

    Leave No Trace

    • Plan ahead and prepare
    • Be Considerate of others
    • Respect Farm animals and wildlife
    • Travel and camp on durable ground
    • Leave what you find
    • Dispose of waste properly
    • Minimise the effects of fire
    The Seashore Code

    Show Respect For Seashore Creatures

    Seashore creatures are fascinating and have found special ways of living in their environment. They have to adapt to survive the rigours of wave-action, exposure and predation. Some have shells for protection, but many need to hide under rocks, seaweed or in the sand.

    Exploring The Seashore Is Fun, But Please Remember:

    • Leave animals where you find them.
    • Take care when touching soft-bodied animals - they are very delicate.
    • Carefully lift and replace any rocks you may have moved - there are animals underneath which need them for shelter.
    • Leave attached seaweed in place - there is plenty lying loose on the strand line.
    • Do not trample through rock pools.

    Take Photos, Not Living Animals

    • Shells come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Many still contain living animals, even if they do look 'dead'. If you want to collect shells, please make sure they are empty before taking them home.

    If you want to buy a souvenir:

    • Buy a photograph, book or poster of colourful marine creatures rather than shells, coral, starfish and urchins or other 'marine curios'. Remember 'curios' would almost certainly have been alive, when collected. If we don't buy them, the shops won't sell them.

    Avoid Disturbing Wildlife

    You can see many animals at their best when they are behaving naturally. This is true for animals such as seals, otters and seabirds, as well as rock pool animals. To avoid disturbing wildlife:

    • It is best to watch from a distance, through binoculars if possible, especially if the animals are nesting, or pupping in the case of seals.
    • Keep your dog clear of birds and other animals.
    • Remember, it is now illegal to disturb or harass many species of birds and animals.

    Take Your Rubbish Home With You

    Beach rubbish is unsightly and can be dangerous to sea creatures. Much of the litter on our shores comes from tourists, shipping, fishing vessels and sewage outfalls. You can help to reduce this problem when visiting the coast:

    • Take your rubbish home - burying it is no solution.
    • Keep your dog from fouling the beach.
    • Report canisters or drums that may be washed up on the beach, but do not touch them.
    • Take part in BeachWatch - the annual beach clean and survey organised by the Marine Conservation Society, or Adopt-a-Beach - a regular survey of beach litter.
    • Bag It and Bin It, Please Don't Flush It - bag and bin all plastic bathroom waste such as cotton bud sticks.

    Watch Where You Go

    Beaches and sand dunes are prone to erosion and easily damaged by people and vehicles. To help protect the coast:

    • Keep to established paths and dune boardwalks.
    • Park in designated car parks and keep access to footpaths clear.
    • Do not use beaches or dunes for scrambling motorcycles or other 'off-road' vehicles.
    • If you dig holes in the beach, please fill them up again.
    • Leave pebbles and rocks on the beach rather than collect them for your garden.

    Be Careful!

    All cliffs are unstable and potentially dangerous, yet they are an impressive sight and from the cliff top it is possible to enjoy a panoramic view of the coastline. Cliffs also provide a very specialised habitat for the plants and animals that live on them.

    Take Care Near Cliffs:

    • Remember that it is dangerous to climb up or go near the top or bottom of a cliff.
    • Please don't throw or push anything over the edge of cliffs. As well as being dangerous, it can increase the rate of cliff erosion and kill or disturb wildlife.
    • Play safe on the beach too: Check tide times to avoid being cut off. Keep away from soft sand and mud - it is easy to get stuck!
