If campfires beneath the stars aren't enough, there's a whole host of nearby entertainment

Part of the hugely successful Feather Down Farms concept, Manor Farm is camping for those who like their creature comforts – rustic decor and outdoor living but with comfy bedding and all mod cons thrown in including a hob, wood burner and coffee grinder. Feather Down takes pride in the details, making sure you always get a jaw-dropping view, the eggs are always ready to be collected from the chicken coop; and fresh bacon and milk is only a larder trip away. This leaves you more time to concentrate on enjoying yourself and making the most of your surroundings. You don't need a tent, as they come pre-erected, fully furnished and look somewhat close to a rural pop up palace. Feather Down use redundant land from farmers, build the tents, and then let the (more authentic) farmers look after you.

What can you expect from Manor Farm? Well it's good for kids, with an onsite buggy for starters; plus it's a fully working farm with plenty of sheep, pigs, chickens and a llama called Alfie for your children to ogle at. If campfires beneath the stars aren't enough, there's a whole host of nearby entertainment, including Thomas the Tank Engine at the Watercress Line, Jane Austen's Chawton House, plus the magnificent New Forest.

Nearby

The beaches at Cromer and Sheringham are the main local attractions, and you can walk through the site into the village, with its pretty green, swings and slides, to the beach at East Runton. The beach is pretty quiet, with good rock pools and nice views to Cromer pier. It’s a sweet, old-fashioned village, with a butcher, tea room, fish-and-chip shop, even an excellent Army Surplus store and a hairdresser, so all essentials covered if you are suddenly struck with a desire to get a perm. You can catch the North Norfolk Railway, a steam train in Sheringham going to Weybourne and Holt.

Food & Drink

Cromer is packed with fish-and-chip shops and old-fashioned cafés. The Victorian Tea Room (01263 517154) on Meadow Road is one of the best. No 1 (01263 515983), owned by television chef Galton Blackiston, is generally considered to be the top fish & chip shop in Cromer and also has geat sea views from the updtairs dining room. The Pepperpot Restaurant (01263 837578) in West Runton is fantastic, too, but a little more expensive. For local meat try Icarus Hines the butcher (01263 514541), in Cromer, or the farm shop at Groveland Farm in Roughton (01263 833777).
