Come and experience the wilder side of Bressingham!

Nestled in a wildflower meadow, surrounded by trees, on the edge of the world renowned Bressingham Gardens, we can now offer our beautifully appointed bell tent. 

Glamping at the Bressingham Gardens

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. 

Enquiries and bookings: matt@bressinghamgardens.com

Spend your days relaxing in the glade, wandering the many gardens, or exploring the Waveney valley and Norfolk-Suffolk countryside.

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. The toilet is nearby, and is an eco-friendly compost loo. There is no shower at present – but it is our next project!

Just come and relax!
