Welcome to Norfolk Bells’ glampsite offerings, pitched all summer in one of Norfolk’s most undiscovered, wild and natural landscapes. From 5 metre to 6 metre deluxe bells, all our canvas peaks are fabulously roomy as either a sumptuous camping palace for two, a cosy nest for a couple’s retreat or a spacious home from home for a family of four to six. And with four bells to choose from in two locations, they’re perfect for groups and families too.
Our Bells and Campsites …
Our three bells at Canal Camping, Dilham offer a 5m diameter space together with star gazing roof panels for a group of up to four and are situated in a sprawling meadow of six acres, running along the peaceful banks of the Old Dilham Canal. Here you will find plenty of room for the kids to run free, as well as having canoes available to hire and launch straight from the campsite, so you can have your very own Wind in the Willows adventure on this truly magical stretch of the Norfolk Broads. The bell at Hickling Campsite is our BIG bell, with a 6m diameter making it perfect for larger groups and families, offering sleeping space for up to six. Situated on the outskirts of this pretty Broadland village, which is home to Norfolk’s largest and ‘wildest’ broad, the site offers plenty of running around space for kiddies as well as easy access for exploring the Broads rich wetland landscape. Day boat and canoe hire are available from the village’s own boatyard as well as a fabulous nature reserve and good watering holes only 1 mile from the bell.
If you’re new to bell tent camping, the benefits are not just in size and comfy beds. Sleeping under cotton offers a magical and far more pleasant nights sleep, than your everyday polyester tent. With the canvas tent there is no waking up feeling unrested and sweaty and there is no condensation!! The breathable nature of cotton canvas, along with four big vents in the peak of the bell, means you are sleeping in fresh air circulating around you all night, giving you a healthy and good nights sleep.
