Local Area

In the heart of Norfolk, set between the Bure and Waveney Valleys, Indian Summer Tipis Boutique Camping is surrounded by beautiful countryside, so we wouldn’t blame those of you tempted to wander further…

It being very easy to explore the locale, our site is linked via the networks of sometimes ancient footpaths and bridleways. Leading through many different landscapes of open fields, woodlands and wetlands, much lies beneath the fields and woods – with the remains of villages, mills, burial mounds and a Roman road, it is possible to sense the ancient landscape around you.

A variety of birds, animals and plants can be spotted whilst walking, including birds of prey, owls, kingfishers, herons, hares, deer, butterflies and orchids. Perfect for a gentle, slow summer stroll – sunset or sunrise being particularly beautiful!

Just 0.7 miles away from us, The Marriotts Way Heritage Trail is – at 26 miles- one of the countries longest off-road routes. Open to walkers, cyclists and horse riders, this tranquil trail will take you through wonderful countryside and picturesque villages. With an abundance of wildlife, you may even see otters! The trail between Norwich and Reepham forms part of The Sustrans 370 mile National Cycle Route Number One.

Salle church, built in the early part of the 15th century lies just across the fields. It’s of huge scale for the size of the village – several lords of local manors, including the Boleyn family, vied with each other to fund the building of the church. There are many brasses, including to members of the Boleyn family.

If you wish to saunter in to town for some supplies, foodie treats from the local farm shop and deli, or to dine out, the historic market town of Reepham lies only 1 mile away and within very easy reach. Here you will find an attractive characterful town with much to offer. With a number of very good pubs to chose from, The Kings Arms, a 17th century coaching inn presents great food and great friendly service. Most Sunday afternoons, they have live jazz playing in the courtyard. The Dial House, a restored Georgian country house, again situated in the market square is the place to visit for elegant dining. There are a few independent cafes and shops including the excellent Flower Folk Florist, and the Koti Store. A shop dedicated to helping reduce single use plastics. Find planet friendly products, handmade and vintage kitchenware.

A little further afield

Unique and globally important, the Norfolk Broads – being just 15 miles away – is England’s largest lowland wetland. Diverse, beautiful and wildlife-rich habitats await.

We are situated 12 miles northwest from the medieval city of Norwich. Historically associated with art, literature and publishing. This continues to the present day.

The renowned and stunning beaches of the North Norfolk coast and its nature reserves are 35 minutes away.
