Day 38 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a visit to Tree Temples in Norfolk, England.

Find out more about their visit: 

Exterior of Tree Temple with steps leading up to it

First Impression:

This is a great alternative to a treehouse stay with all the advantages and style of it without the stairs!

You will find the Temple in a wooded area where you will wake to birdsong and fling open the doors to feel close to nature.

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

Tree Temple interior with double bed

The Accommodation:

The interiors are simple but comfortable with a tree trunk and colourful stained glass windows.

Choose Owl if looking for a break for 2 or Ash if coming as a family of up to four guests - this has bunk beds as well as a double bed. 

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! Download a film before you come if you want to watch something in the evening.

Lovely rustic style en-suite shower room with mosaic floor tiles and wood effect wall tiles

Food and Drink:

The treehouse temple has basic facilities including a microwave, electric hob, toaster and kettle so you can cook a simple meal. 

There is also 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 you can 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.
