Nestled in a wildflower meadow, surrounded by trees, on the edge of the world renowned Bressingham Gardens, are two beautiful bell tents
Spend your days relaxing in the glade, wandering the many gardens, or exploring the Waveney valley and Norfolk-Suffolk countryside.
Reserved for 2 adults only, the bell tent is designed for simple but luxurious comfort, with a kingsize bed, bespoke wooden furniture, and snug seating.
There is a wood burning stove for cosy nights in, and all the kit you need to prepare a meal for two. There is also a fire-pit for tranquil evenings, flame-gazing, and barbecuing.
Off the Grid
The 5m bell tent is ‘off-grid’. However, guests are provided with a fully charged battery pack to power warm led-lighting inside the tent, and to recharge phones and tablets. Solar lighting guides your way outside, with added light from led-lanterns. There is no wifi – but there is excellent 4G coverage from EE. Mains water is available nearby. Our eco-friendly compost loo is nearby too.
