Cosy bell tent glamping in a unique and stunning North Norfolk Coast location

Based on a working farm near the Norfolk resort of Wells-next-the-Sea, Amber's Bell Tents at Branthill Farm is one of several stunning locations in this mini bell tent empire. Based on a farm on the beautiful Holkham estate, a few miles from the sea, it has 8 cosy, fully-furnished 6-metre bell tents to tempt you.

Each tent is super-comfy, providing all the excitement of camping but without some of the hard work. Like all the Amber's sites, they have proper beds for the adults and camp beds for the kids - all made up with thick winter tog double duvets and cotton linen.  The tents are very sheltered behind hedges, with views of both the farm and over towards the coast. They have a wood-burning stove and a kitchen box of cookwares to help you cook up a storm on the outside firepit/barbecue. Or you can fire up the wood-fired pizza oven and cook one of the local artisan pizzas they sell in the on-site ale shop.  Each tent has oodles of space outside, with it's own picnic area around individual fire pits, and the site has well-kept modern bathrooms with WCs, a washing-up station, an honesty shop and a games area.

As for the farm, it specializes in barley, which is put to good use in the farm's own Malt Coast microbrewery, which supplies the very handily situated on-site ale shop! You can even have an ale hamper waiting for you when you arrive, or sample the brews on a brewery tour. ​The farm also sits on the magnificent Holkham Estate, which has miles of cycle and walking trails around the parkland, formal gardens, a high rope adventure course and of course the grand house at the centre of it all. Not only that, you are a short trip away from Norfolk's famous Holkham beach -  a huge expanse backed by pinewoods that you can stroll through to get to the delightful seaside town of Wells, with all its pubs, restaurants, shops and other amenities.



The cotton canvas bell tents are fully furnished, featuring single and double beds (depending on your needs) and all bedding and linen included. Wood burners, storage and soft furnishings inside, plus a kitchen box equipped with utensils and vintage dishware. Outside each tent, you'll find a picnic table and fireside log seating and a BBQ/firepit. Brand new shower block on the field, plus a general washing station in the field for dirty dishes. There's also an onsite honesty shop for fire essentials, such as kindling, charcoal, firewood and candles. Badminton net and field toys, and a woodland den with hammocks.
