Date of Visit: June 2017 Unit:  Campervan Rating:

Yes, a campervan at Gorsey Meadow. As long as the site is quiet and you're in a small campervan, you'll probably get a pitch. The access lane has very low hanging trees (gorgeous), so absolutely no high tops or motorhomes would fit. Tents are also welcome, especially mid-week.

Our June visit was a mid-week stopover, and oh how we wished we could have stayed longer. What bliss to have this little enclosed meadow to ourselves. The five bell tents looked so cosy, we almost wished we weren't in our little van, wanted to play like kids again under canvas. We sneaked a look inside a bell tent and were really blown away by the level of comfort inside and the thoughtfulness with which they've been kitted out for glampers.

Back to the meadow - the grass is skimmed off from time to time, but left long enough to be comfortable barefoot. The running water on site is not for drinking, it's from an iron-rich well or steam. BUT not only is there a full double drainer kitchen sink for washing up, but a flushing loo and a great gas heated shower. The best we encountered on any campsite in Norfolk (with a battery lantern for nightime). Of course, however squeamish you are, you won't be able to resist trying the composting eco loo. Judging by comments in the visitors' book, you'll struggle to get kids to return to the standard flush loo.

Two firepits await you for evening campfires, with wheelbarrows of wood available to buy. An inventive touch is the pair of little sheds housing an honesty shop with essentials such as ketchup, charcoal, eco toiletries and marshmallows for toasting on that campfire. The other is brimming full of local information (if you can drag yourself away from the meadow), novels to curl up with, toys and crayons for tots, candles to light your late night gatherings (you're off grid remember), and wine glasses so that adults can have a change from plastic cups.

So much thought and care has gone into making this meadow into a magical space. It is quite remote (a great charm), so stock up well for your stay, ideally using the butcher, baker and village shop in Lenwade.
