The Oyster Catcher, a beautiful white canvas clad bio-dome, is one of two glamping units set in a 5 acre field at Bagthorpe Farm. Set amongst our unspoilt farmland in rural North Norfolk yet only a short drive (10-15mins) from the hustle and bustle of the coast and market towns, it is the perfect spot to recharge the batteries, especially for those seeking a touch of luxury on their camping trip.
The Oyster Catcher, canvas clad geodomes in the midst of our expansive farmland, is the perfect spot to recharge batteries with a touch of luxury. The main dome has a king sized bed, snuggle duvet and wood burning stove to keep you cosy under canvas. The second dome has been divided by a wooden wall into a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, which has a flushing loo and free standing bath with water heated by a wood burning stove for that all important candlelit soak under the stars. The domes are on your own private wooden deck with views across a 5 acre field and woods with the perfect view to watch the sunset and later shooting stars.
Kings sized bed - all bed linen and towels are provided.
Camping gas stove - wood, kindling and paper supplied for getting the wood burning stoves going.
BBQ with utensils.
Cool box with ice packs which can be swapped during your stay.
Large butler sink in the kitchen, crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, tea and coffee, basic condiments - salt and pepper and oil for cooking, fresh hers grow outside on the decking.
Cold running water - hot water provided by the wood burning stove or kettle on camping gas stove.
There is no electricity but lots of candles and lanterns (moonlight and stars!).
Board games, cards, cookery books and a selection of novels.
The Oyster Catcher is a short walk up a field/farm track, wellies or sturdy footwear is advisable, as is a torch (there are no street lights in Bagthorpe!)
We won't disturb you during your stay but are always on hand to answer any questions or if you need anything during your stay. There is an information pack in the bedroom dome.

Nick and Emily decided to move back to Norfolk after 10 years in London working in finance and the music industry and are now living in the Farm House that Emily grew up in. Nick is embracing his career change as an Organic Farmer and they are loving bringing up their young family on the farm. They are looking forward to being able to share the wonderfully unspoilt rural countryside in North Norfolk that they live in and offer an experience for guests to reconnect with nature and the simple pleasures in life.
