    Amazing location and lovely accommodation, kids absolutely loved it. Hosts were very welcoming and made sure we found the campsite entrance in the dark by guiding us in with lights and showed us to our accommodation, also cleaned the pool ready for us. Would defo use again!

    We had a great few days staying in Jacobs Folly. The hut is beautiful, very comfortable with everything we needed. My 12 and 13 year boys weren’t happy to learn there was no wifi, but soon got over this and had great fun in the heated swimming pool and playing in the woods building dens etc. Only a short drive to beautiful beaches, we had a great time paddle boarding at Blakeney Quay. A great glamping experience .

    Such a delightful place to stay with friendly hosts. Jacobs Folly is a lovely little place to stay. Really good quality cabin, bed linen and towels. Was worried the farm animals might keep us awake but we slept so well! Lovely hot shower is the toilet block too. The heated pool is an added bonus
