FAQs

  • What should I bring with me?

    We pride ourselves on providing a full spectrum glamping experience, which means your packing list can remain fairly light! We provide bedding and blankets, and have plentiful indoor spaces to enjoy if the weather isn’t ideal. Games, maps and books can be found in the Nest (for the Lakes) or your Sundowner cabin (at Honeypot Meadow).

    Towels are only included for those staying at Honeypot Meadow, otherwise please bring your own. We have eco-friendly hand wash, hand sanitiser, body wash, shampoo and conditioner for use in your shower.

    All cooking equipment is provided along with cleaning supplies. You can pre-order breakfast hampers as well as bbq and pizza making kits, but we also provide fridges if you’d prefer to bring your own food supplies.

  • Can I bring my dog?

    Although we love dogs, we are unfortunately unable to accept pets on our site (with the exception of assistance dogs) as it is a working farm with livestock and an abundance of wildlife. There may be animals grazing on the farm during your stay, plus bee hives, numerous wild deer, swans, geese and other species.

    Please advise us if you will be bringing an assistance dog.

  • Do I have to pay to access the lakes and hire kayaks/paddleboards?

    Access to the lakes and use of all our watersports equipment is included with your stay. We do require guests to complete a disclaimer for insurance purposes, however.

  • Can I swim in the lakes?

    Yes! Some of our lakes are better for swimming than others and will be clearly signposted. Safety equipment is provided and checked regularly. We have had the water quality tested against EC bathing water standards and we received an ‘excellent pass’ for all checks that were performed.

  • Do you take group bookings?

    We welcome groups of all sizes at the Lakes, which is the perfect destination for groups of friends or families looking to celebrate a special occasion together. You can book a combination of up to three individual properties to host up to 12 people. Alternatively, exclusive use of the site for up to 30 people is available, which includes use of up to three additional bell tents if required. We are happy to tailor your gathering to make it truly extraordinary – please contact us with any questions.

  • Where are the nearest shops?

    Shropham village has an excellent butcher’s shop (Barnard’s Butchers, open Tuesday to Saturday), which also supplies fresh eggs, fruit and vegetables as well as jam, chutney and cheese. In Great Ellingham 3.5 miles away there is a farm shop (Rookery Meadows) which offers plenty of fresh, local produce. Our closest convenience shop is 2.7 miles away in Rockland All Saints (Rocklands Community Shop). This is small but well-stocked.

    The closest town is Attleborough, which contains supermarkets (Sainsbury’s and Lidl) and a range of shops.

  • Can I walk to a pub from Wild With Nature?

    Although we don’t have a traditional pub in the village, Sayer’s Bar and Social Club is situated in Shropham Village Hall (within walking distance). It is open 7-11pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and 12-3pm on Sundays.

  • Are children allowed?

    We welcome children at the Lakes site and there is lots for them to do. However, due to the lack of barriers around the water’s edge, we don’t feel the site is suitable for ambulant children under five or non-swimmers.

    Our yurts are spacious enough to fit a travel cot, but due to space restrictions and fire regulations this is not possible in any of the shepherd’s huts at the Lakes site.

    Honeypot Meadow is more suitable for adults rather than children, in part due to the site’s peaceful and romantic setting, but in part due to the lack of barriers around the water’s edge. There is space for a travel cot in each of the Honeypot Meadow huts.

    Ultimately, the decision rests with parents as to whether they wish to bring young children at their own risk. Regardless of age, children must be supervised at all times.

  • How private are the Honeypot Meadow huts?

    There are just two huts within the Honeypot Meadow site (Cowslip & Orchid), each of which has its own Sundowner cabin. Each hut and its cabin is situated on the edge of the meadow, backed by the woodland, and each faces the lake at a slightly different angle to provide a more private outlook. There is a screen fence between the huts, so not only are the huts angled in slightly different directions, but there is also a physical barrier between them.

    Each hut provides everything you should need for your stay, to ensure complete privacy. The only things you’ll share with the other Honeypot Meadow hut are the lake, the paddleboards and the wildlife!

  • What time can I check in?

    Check-in is from 4pm onwards.

  • How will I know where my hut or yurt is at the Lakes site?

    Before your stay you will be sent a digital guidebook, which contains a wealth of information about the site and surrounding area. Included in this is a beautiful illustrated map of the Lakes site, which marks each of the huts and yurts as well as the Nest, and of course, the lake itself. Once onsite, each hut, yurt and bell tent has its own name sign.

  • Is there parking on site?

    Yes, private parking is included at each site.

  • Do you offer EV charging?

    Unfortunately we don’t yet offer EV charging at Wild With Nature. This is simply because our solar panels wouldn’t be able to cope with generating enough power for vehicles while still providing reliable energy for the glamping site.

    The nearest EV charging station is in Queen’s Square car park in Attleborough (NR17 2QW), although the nearest fast-charging station is at the Shell garage just to the north of Attleborough (NR17 2PU). Both are within a 15-minute drive from Wild With Nature.

  • Is there hot water?

    Yes, hot water is available throughout both sites in the kitchen areas as well as for the showers and toilets.

  • How much does it cost to add an additional bell tent onto my booking?

    Depending when you’re staying, to add a bell tent onto your booking costs between £80 and £110 per night.
