Day 38 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a stay in Rustic Treehouses in Norfolk, England.

Find out more about their visit:

First Impression:

The location on a picturesque estate, with grounds to explore, lake to boat in and pool or lake to swim in couldn’t be more perfect for your treehouse getaway.

If you can drag yourself away then this is a great base to explore Norfolk.

You can use this stay to switch off from your usual busy lives and take a deep breath. Go to bed early and rise early letting nature lead your waking hours.

Great to be shown around by Tanya and to see and enjoy the site in person after working with them since 2015.

The Accommodation:

There are 4 treehouses on site and we stayed in Tilia which is shown in the photos here. The interiors are gorgeous with lots of use of wood everywhere. 

There are 2 double beds downstairs and you climb the steep steps to the upper level where 2 more can sleep above.

There are no curtains but the roof overhangs to give you privacy and this treehouse has a lovely rustic shower room too.

We actually enjoyed staying in winter as when we lit the aga to cook it heated the whole treehouse up for a really cosy stay. 

There is little wifi on the estate - although I could pick it up by the outdoor kitchen and in the car park when required.

But this has the advantage of letting you switch off! You could always download a film before you come if you want to watch something in the evening.

We can easily say we really loved this treehouse stay - the style and the comfort of it and also the feel of the estate too was really welcoming. 

The other treehouses on site all have their own styling and sleep 2 to 6 guests so you can enjoy a romantic getaway in Tinker Treehouse or a family getaway (or a couple who want more space) in Quercus or Sunrise Treehouses, both of which sleep up to 6 guests, with different sleeping arrangements.

Food and Drink:

Tilia treehouse where we stayed has a log burning cooking oven with two oven shelves and one hob ring so you can delight in cooking simple delicious meals to enjoy on your treetop terrace. Quercus Treehouse also benefits from this feature.

The other treehouses have access to a well-equipped garden kitchen if you wish to cook on site and the on-site restaurant is due to open under new management in March 2023.

If looking to dine out then the George & Dragon is a very welcoming pub, just a short drive or half an hour stroll away from this sleepy hamlet.

If coming with your dog then this would be an ideal place to enjoy a meal out as they welcome dogs with open arms. 

Jess braving a swim in the lake in February

Jess' top tip:

With 22 acres of woodland, a large lake with resident swan, a couple of dinghy boats for you to use or steps down to swim in the lake, there is plenty to entertain on site.

We did brave a fantastic morning swim while here in February!

The swimming pool is open seasonally for guests use so a wonderful extra to enjoy. This is normally from April to September but may vary slightly depending on the weather.

It is heated but as in the open air the temperature will vary also depending on the outside temperature.

Oxburgh Estate

The estate itself is not far from King’s Lynn and the closer market town of Swaffham would be a nice place to visit. Snettisham is the closest beach with its neighbouring RSPB nature reserve.

We enjoyed visiting Oxburgh Estate in the area (above) which is a National Trust property with moat and gardens. You can see some renovated rooms inside and there is a cafe on site.
