An unspoilt glamping escape that evokes the naturally untamed spirit of Africa with all the cosy comforts of home, set along the stunning Norfolk Coast.
Family-run Wild Luxury is a natural heaven for those who love to walk on the wild side, yet still appreciate the odd creature comfort or two!
Declared as the "coolest camping in Britain" by The Times, Wild Luxury comprises two private sites that feature award-winning, fully-equipped luxury safari lodges, along with a summer-only Wild Camping escape that includes sleeping bell tents. You're sure to discover accommodation that suits you right down to the ground, whether you're part of a family or group seeking fresh adventure, or a couple in search of a secluded haven.
The two private camps, The Hideaway and Thornham Bay, are separated by just a few miles, both achingly close to idyllic beaches and with breathtakingly fresh woodland scenery all around.
The Hideaway is, as its name suggests, paradise-perfect for romantics and smaller family groups, with four amazing beaches right on the doorstep. Set in 60 acres of lush grassland, the site includes an adventure area for miniature explorers and a friendly selection of chickens and farm pets to chat to!
Thornham Bay is equipped with a farm shop and yurt restaurant that makes it ideal for larger, sociable groups. Nestled in beautiful orchards and adjacent to a farm and a wildlife centre, with links to the outside world readily available, you can get ready to explore.
Once you've chosen your ideal camp, all you need to do next is choose your luxury accommodation from a selection of award-winning Serengeti and Zambezi lodges. The two larger Zambezi lodges are exclusive to The Hideaway site, and sleep up to 6 adults or a family of 10, while the Serengeti lodges, luxuriously spread across both sites, sleep up to 6 people in total, in 600 spacious square feet of African-style luxury.
Each generous lodge features a cosy master bedroom, as well as another twin or bunk...along with a delightful ‘sleeping cupboard' for two! Dining and living areas are perfect for congregating, with a sun deck that's made for sunset-watching over a glass of bubbles.
You'll find each solid-floored lodge fully equipped with everything you'd expect from a lavish beachside villa, from a wood-burning range cooker and running sink, to a gas stove, power shower and a flushing toilet (no composting loos here!)
During summer time only, the Wild Camp makes for an exclusive natural escape for up to 12 people in search of their very own outdoor adventure.
Instead of lodges, sleep under the stars with a range of ‘sleeping' and ‘chill' bell tents whilst enjoying comforts including a 13-metre star canopy, shower tower and fitted kitchen including barbecue area for al-fresco dining at its very best.
Wherever you decide to rest your head, with Wild Luxury you'll soon find you can tailor your stay to be as relaxing or adventureful as you'd like! With something for absolutely everyone on or around the site, from a day on the beach to a trip into nearby Sandringham or Burnham Market, to golfing days, to learning a new watersport, you'll soon be making plenty of memories together that will endure for years to come.
So pack up your sense of Wild adventure and get ready for a Luxury glamping experience to truly remember!
