Small-scale luxury bell tent glamping in Oxnead, halfway between Norwich and the Norfolk coast
If it weren’t for the detailed instructions, leading you down a narrow private road, across the River Bure and into the woodland beyond, you would never believe that Keepers Meadow even existed. While the grand Oxnead Hall – a 16th-century manor backed by pristine gardens – is unmissable from the road, the glampsite lies secluded amidst the trees.

Such privacy is, of course, the appeal of Keepers Meadow. And with just three bell tents spread across the entire site, it’s clear the owners want to retain that peaceful and secluded ambience. A newly built shower block contains an individual shower room for each of the tents, finished to perfection with full-length mirror, complimentary soap, and wall-mounted hair dryer. You also get your own personal kitchen area, fully equipped with everything you need. The attention to detail really marks the place out; from BBQ utensils down to a cafetière, everything seems to be covered.

The bell tents themselves vary in size. Two sleep up to four people, while the third, larger tent can sleep six. They include a double bed and bunks, with space to add an extra little one by squeezing in a travel cot. The décor is suitably quaint with bunting, scatter cushions and light, wooden furnishings – with plenty of space around them for kids to boot a ball around or fling a Frisbee.

Anglers will be pleased to hear that, if you head back through the trees, it’s possible to fish for trout in the River Bure. The river here is split into two segments, after it was rerouted as a means to work four-storey Oxnead Mill, built in 1851. Even if you’re not coming to fish, it’s worth the stroll simply for the chance to look across at Oxnead Hall, a beautiful redbrick building with sections dating as far back as the 16th century. A stroll in the opposite direction, leads you to the Bure Valley Railway, with Buxton Station just ten minutes away on foot. Hop on a steam train and you can chug all the way into Wroxham, the heart of the Norfolk Broads.

The campsite owner says

Just a stones throw from the banks of the River Bure you’ll find our Bell Tents fully equipped with the luxuries of a modern hotel room. Each has its own shower room, kitchenette and dining area for the sole use of its occupants, all under cover. Nestled beside its own piece of woodland and off the beaten track, our peaceful location is known to very few and couldn’t be better placed for a lovely selection of country walks, canoe trails and cycle routes.
