Glamping

Little Island Retreat & Meadow Yurt

When we are not hosting weddings we welcome guests to stay in our unique glamping cabin Little Island Retreat. Nestled on its own private island in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, yours is the only glamping spot on site, offering a truly exclusive glamping experience. Find out more about glamping or book a stay at Little Island Retreat.


With a king size bed and decking area overlooking the lake, as well as hot shower and utility room just a short walk away, this is the perfect Norfolk glamping site for those seeking a few creature comforts in a truly rural retreat. Immerse yourself in nature from just £90 a night.

Surrounded by ancient oak trees and nine-acre meadow, you can expect to see an abundance of wildlife varying from giant dragonflies in an array of stunning colours, to herons, nesting kestrels, visiting Barnacle geese and our resident carp and our ducks Shane and Wayne, just to name a few.

Little Island Retreat is one of a kind. Designed and built by hand by Rob and carpenter friend Steve from locally sourced wood, the cabin is clad with red cedar, and the decking area is made from Douglas fir. The decorative features inside the cabin, including the dresser and door arches are made from a fallen branch from one of our lovely meadow oak trees.

Inside Little Island Retreat is a king size bed, dresser, seating and cooking utensils

The lake itself has a special place in our hearts as it was built by Rob’s father in the year Rob was born. At its deepest point, surrounding the island it is 15ft foot, and home to many carp who have used the lake as a nursery. The lake was designed to look beautiful but not for swimming or fishing, so for your safety and out of respect for this special place guests cannot enter the water.

The cabin has everything you need for your stay; solar power provides lighting, and the cabin is equipped with a BBQ, kettle, dresser, crockery and cooking utensils as well as a table and chairs for outdoor dining. Next to the cabin is an eco toilet, and a short stroll away is a shower and utility room with flushing toilet, running water, electric shower, sinks and fridge.

The island has its own eco toilet, plus guests have access to a flushable toilet and hot shower a short stroll away
