Rutherford's Shepherds hut

1 unit · Glamping1 acre · Reepham, England
Rutherford's shepherds hut sits in a secluded field in the middle of the Norfolk countryside. It is situated on the land of a small holding close to the market town of Reepham. If you like a simple, quiet, break away from it all where all you can hear are the birds, then this is the place for you. Rutherford's is cosily built for two staying. The bed is one of the most comfortable you've ever slept on, and the hut includes all the conveniences you'll need for a short break with sink, fridge and gas hob, the kitchen area all picked out in superb rustic detail. Please note there is no oven. We've got water and energy saving on our minds with the compost loo and there's also a shower, perfect for refreshing after a day's walk or cycle on Mariotts Way, only a stones throw in distance. In the evening, you can relax under the stars with a campfire ( wood supplied) listening to the Tawny owls and enjoy the peace and quiet of the private site. We welcome 1 well-behaved dog (please bear in mind that there is usually live stock in the surrounding fields so dogs must be kept on leads at all times). There is also the option of bringing children (max 2) in a small pup tent. Reepham is 15 minutes walk from the site where you can find everything you need to kit you out for a weekend away. There's also pubs, cafes and takeaways. Please get in touch with any questions.

Farm shepherd's huts near Thetford guide

Overview

Camping and glamping in Thetford

The shade of Norfolk’s Thetford Forest provides a complete contrast to the vast, flat and open Breckland that surrounds it and camping or glamping in the area gives you the opportunity to experience both. Thetford Forest is the UK’s largest manmade lowland forest with 19,000 hectares to explore. It’s a peaceful, place where you can enjoy back-to-nature camping and active days of walking, cycling and wildlife watching. Naturally, it’s a fantastic place for active family camping holidays and, as with the rest of Norfolk, campsites are not hard to find in Thetford. There are farm-based sites and woodland sites where you can camp among trees, back-to-basics sites with rustic facilities and places with electric hook-up and modern conveniences. For truly luxurious camping, try glamping in Thetford. Norfolk is a particular highlight on the glamping scene and there are shepherd’s huts, cabins, safari tents, yurts and more tucked away in the Brecks, The Broads by the coast and in woodland. We’ve sought out the very best camping and glamping sites in Thetford for the Hipcamp collection so whatever type of camper you are, there should be something to suit you.

Things to do in Thetford

Things to do in Thetford during a camping holiday in the area naturally revolve around Thetford Forest. A great place to start your exploration of this lowland pine forest is at High Lodge where you’ll find a café, bike hire, Go Ape! tree-top adventure and the start of walking and cycling trails. It’s also a great place to discover on horseback. And there’s wild swimming on offer in the Little Ouse at St Helen’s Picnic Place.

The market town of Thetford is just outside the forest and has modern shops for picking up camping supplies and a museum dedicated to TV comedy show, Dad’s Army, which was filmed there. The town was the birthplace of Thomas Paine who wrote on the abolition of slavery and was instrumental in helping America achieve independence. You can learn about him and the history of the area at the Ancient House Museum. There’s older historical sites here too, including Grimes Graves – a prehistoric flint mine that’s looked after by English Heritage. Located between the historic cities of Cambridge and Norwich and close to the market town of Bury St Edmunds, Thetford is a great base for a camping holiday if seeing the headline sights of East Anglia is on your holiday wish list.
