Off-grid glamping and camping at this family-run site set in a picturesque meadow in beautiful South Norfolk, close to the border of Suffolk.
Driftways is a relaxing, rural Glamping and Camping site based in South Norfolk. With just 12 pitches cut into a 4.5 acre meadow, each has ensuite compost toilet and campfire facilities.
Driftways Glamping and Meadow Camping site is based at Moat Farm, in the heart of the East Anglian countryside and is surrounded by farmland. Even though it feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere, the site provides easy access to a huge range of attractions and amenities across the local area.
There are 12 spacious pitches, 5 individual bell tents for glamping and 7 oversize camping areas mowed into the meadow grass. All pitches have their own clean compost toilet, campfire area, picnic bench and cooking area.
Each glamping structure also has a fully equipped kitchenette and own device charging facilities. Shared hot gas and solar-powered showers are available nearby for all guests to use.
Nearby there are a wide range of walking and cycling routes including the Woodland Trust’s Tyrell’s Wood just 1/3 mile away.
Site owners Vanessa and Andrew aim to provide guests with comfort in nature with an off-grid glamping and camping experience and therefore the site aims to be as eco as possible. Recycling bins are provided but guests are politely asked to keep glass usage to a minimum.
The site is across the lane to our smallholding and ‘The Dairy’ provides access to plug sockets and a fridge and freezer. Shop items/extras can be purchased by contacting the site owners.
Driftways does not allow pets within glamping structures, except for guide dogs. Although dogs are allowed for camping guests for a fee.
