deepdale yurt weekend

Norfolk yurt weekend

Two weeks ago Paul and I travelled to the north Norfolk coast to spend the weekend in a Yurt. I really cannot recommend this experience enough!

I'd never visited this part of England before, so when researching into a mini-break for my Birthday last month, the idea to go to Norfolk seemed highly appealling. I had come across the concept of a Yurt holiday through the Enjoy England website last summer. After some further research, I discovered the eco-friendly Deepdale Farm Campsite. There was no doubt about it, we had to go.

The Yurt we stayed in was large enough to sleep eight; with one double bed and three double futons. It also had a wood-burning stove that kept us lovely and warm during our stay. The campsite itself was intimate and pretty - just like this part of the Norfolk coast (even in the Feburary rain). There was a café to have breakfast practically onsite (which sources all it's food locally - the organic eggs were from the hens across the road).

During our three day stay, we visited the market towns of Wells-Next-The-Sea, Holt and Cromer; ate lots of wonderful local food (including a meal in a Yurt restaurant!); relaxed and warmed in front of the wood burner; and watched the stars when nightime arrived. A perfect way to spend a weekend.
