A truly stunning hand-built glamping site featuring creatively converted lorries, each with private facilities, tucked away in beautiful rural Norfolk.
Entirely off-grid seculded site, entwined within the surrounding nature in rural Norfolk. Built using local knowledge, materials, skills, artists and technology. Two restored vintage horse lorries.
Get Away Hide Away is tucked away within the Norfolk countryside within the Wensum valley in the small hamlet of Elsing. The site itself is two acres of wild flower meadow which are home to two vintage, restored and converted horse lorries. The meadow plays host to a wide variety of wildlife. From Badgers to Butterflies the site is teaming with nature.
The pressure and heat from our off-grid showers is often complimented and many have said our well-maintained compost loo’s have changed their minds.
We take great pride in offering some of the most secluded, private, relaxed and welcoming glamping options the region has to offer.

At the far end of the meadow, is restored & converted 1967 bedford tk “Douglas”. Super king-sized bed up top, below is a tucked away single. The sofa bench central to the south facing French doors which lead out to the deck, perfect for al fresco dining. Douglas has been enjoyed by both families and couples alike however we feel there is a real romance to this lorry.
Tucked away half way down the meadow you will find “Dixie” she’s full of character & surprises hidden on her many levels. The steps lead up to the large bottom deck which is perfect for sharing a meal with others Another climb of steps takes you up to the top floor decking area. Towering four meters, above the surrounding landscape this deck is the perfect viewing platform to observe the site wildlife.

Children love sitting in Douglas' cab pretending to take him for a drive.
