Just outside the North Norfolk village of Itteringham, Mannington Hall is an impressive 15th-century moated manor with some spectacular gardens, and it has the occasionally open day if you want to visit. But why wait when you can stay at Amber's Bell Tents, which occupies a three-acre field that overlooks the water meadows beyond the gardens, having teamed up with Mannington's committed conservationist owners, Lord and Lady Walpole, to present a luxurious, low-impact bell tent site. It's pretty popular, and once here it's not hard to see why.

Amber's 5-metre, bunting-adorned tents are spacious and airy, made of breathable natural cotton – the perfect antidote to stuffy polyester tents. They have up to 10 bell tents here at any one time, all kitted out with cute vintage touches, along with double beds, wood burners, rugs, fairy lights, lanterns and a cool box and cooking kit – plus  the tents have an awning so you can spend the evening losing yourself to the light-pollution-free night sky. There is an onsite tea room for your afternoon snacks, and bespoke catering options can be ordered in advance – all celebrating the best of local produce. Amber's onsite honesty shop is also stocked with the essentials you'll need for a good campfire, plenty of wood and fuel so you can toast those marshmallows into the last of the wee hours.

The location is great, with the North Norfolk Coast close by, and the watery expanses of the Broads National Park to the south, but with so much to do in Mannington itself – from badminton and boules, woodland walks and childrens' nature courses  – you may just decide to stay put!



Tents sleep up to 5. Single and double beds are provided depending on your needs and all bedding is included. Outside, you'll find a picnic table (per tent), combi bbq/firepit, plus a kitchen box equipped with utensils and vintage dishware. There's a washing up tap on the field for dirty dishes, plus loos and showers in the gardens about 200 metres from the tents. There's also an onsite honesty shop for fire essentials like kindling, charcoal, firewood and candles. Mannington Hall and Gardens are yours to explore. Nature packs for kids plus complimentary badminton and boules on offer. Extra partnerships the campsite boasts means campers can arrange for an intent massage from a local sports therapist or can have bikes dropped at the site to rent with no extra charge for delivery.

Suitable For

Glampers only. No tent camping or campervans. No dogs.


With Norwich, the Broads and the North Norfolk Coast practically on your doorstep, there's no shortage of great days out. The CanoeMan (0845 4969177) gives guided tours of these iconic waterways, while Holkham Bay is one of the latter's finest beaches. Nearby Holt is surprisingly bohemian, with a good selection of fashionable independent shops and restaurants. For the litt'luns, Bewilderwood (01692 633033) is an award-winning woodland adventure park with rope bridges, zip-lines and treehouses. In case you haven't had your fill of stately piles, Holkham Hall (01328 710806), Felbrigg Hall ( 01263 837444), and Walsingham Abbey and Gardens (01328 820510) are all within easy reach. You can also cycle the picturesque lanes surrounding Mannington (you won't lose your way thanks to the complimentary cycle maps).

Food & Drink

Mannington Hall has its own tea shop and campers can contact Helen from the tea room before they stay to pre-order hampers, cakes, campfire stews, and other treats. Aylsham and Holt boast a couple of award-winning butchers – G F White (01263 732264) and P S Butchers (01263 713227), respectively. As for decent locals, The Walpole Arms (01263 587258) takes some beating. Just a mile from the site, this 18th century pub's traditional charms belie it's modern menu. The Walpole has won the coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand Prize ten years in a row. Be sure to explore their stunning garden too.
