The Grove Glamping started in 2015, with Ruth Graveling, partner of The Grove Cromer, has decided to invest in her own glamping business. Since then, The Grove Glamping has gone from strength to strength and from glam to glammer. 2016 saw bell tents replaced by yurts and a new shower and loo block added. There is now a range of five and six metre Normadic and Mongolian yurts. The three Nomadic yurts are five-metres in diameter and sleep four people and the two Mongolian yurts sleep 6 and 8 people, respectively.
“They are more spacious and robust than the bell tents we had in 2015 and are also insulated, which means they will keep the warmth in and cold out,” Ruth says. The Mongolian yurts, which have oak doors, are surrounded by a wooden lattice with a window looking up to the stars. These Monoglian yurts are in two sizes; the five meter yurt will sleep six people and the six meter yurt will sleep eight. Each is fitted with all your creature comforts, guaranteed to make your stay a home-away-from-home.
Each yurt has a double bed with a proper mattress and duvet – none of your cheap lilos here – as well as bunk beds, a wood burning stove so you can snuggle up and hunker down, low wattage 240-volt electricity courtesy of solar panels (to charge phones and stay in touch with the real world) and each has its own undercover cooking and eating area with gas hobs and its own charcoal BBQ, if you fancy making your own sizzling sausages or burnt burgers.
The site itself is in a quiet corner of the garden with easy access to the pool and is a great safe place for kids to play and make friends. The five yurts are huddled around a fire pit, which has a convivial atmospheric feel in the evenings. “It works really well,” Ruth continues, “because each yurt has its own space, yet it’s also very easy to meet the other glampers and have a chat over a glass of wine and an open fire.” What could be more ideal?
All yurts are fully kitted out with everything for your stay, you will need to bring towels, slippers and your swimming kit, to enjoy the free onsite pool. The washing up facilities provided include hot running water, but neither washing up liquid, dish-cloths nor tea towels are provided, so please remember to pack these It’s also worth bringing a torch as there is little light pollution on site. Tucked behind the pool, the yurts have their own washing up area, fire pits, hammocks, as well as benefiting from the short walk through our private woodland path to the award winning Cromer beach.
Glamping is the perfect solution for those families or couples wanting to add a little something different to their stay with us here at The Grove.
We are sorry, but we do not accept stag or hen nights. It is also a pet free site.
