Thompson Hall Retreat
“Luxury glamping with outdoor spa facilities” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
Adjacent to King Edward VIII Wood, Norfolk Wildlife Trust land with red deer and one mile from the 23-acre Thompsons Lake, which contains a magnificent variety of birds, this unique and very special holiday destination is guaranteed to provide a peaceful and relaxing ambience. The accommodation is located in two shepherd’s huts, two very large belle tents and a safari tent, all with adjoining cabins containing top notch kitchen and bathroom facilities. Log burners, sumptuous furnishings and an abundance of thoughtful extras, ensure a memorable experience. All units are provided with an alfresco dining area complete with barbecue and fire pit and an outside spa with monsoon shower, sauna, hot tub and loungers is a great place to escape the pressures of every day life. The Retreat also specialises in ‘Retreat Boxes’ which are a selection of locally sourced food and wines offering everything for a breakfast to a barbecue, with ingredients delivered to each unit.

About the area
The North Norfolk Coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and probably the finest of its kind in Europe. Here you’ll find a string of quaint villages and small towns – Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cley next the Sea are 21st-century favourites, while Sheringham and Cromer are classic examples of a good old-fashioned seaside resort where grand Victorian hotels look out to sea. Further round the coast you'll find Great Yarmouth, one of the most popular resorts in the UK and packed full of amusements, shops and seashore entertainment. And let's not forget Norwich, the region's only city.
Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and her family spend Christmas. Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular charm and a strong sense of community. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, as well as Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the TV comedy series Dad’s Army which was filmed in the area.
