Things to do

Cabins can be found in a leafy setting, deep in the countryside beside the River Thet . Stay within striking distance of unspoilt wildlife havens and of course, the epic Norfolk coastline.

Surround yourself in a maze of forest walks, trails and meadow, and enjoy your retreat from the everyday. With underfloor heating, log burners and incredible views, this Forest Holiday is one you aren't likely to forget.

Each and every cabin has its very own private hot tub. Take a refreshing dip in the morning as nature wakes up around you. Or sink back into the bubbles for an evening soak underneath the starlit sky.

Spend time with a dedicated Forest Ranger on location. You can plan a programme of unique experiences to discover the wonders and secrets of the forest.

Walking at Harling Woods is the perfect way to get some fresh air and explore some of the area's most beautiful landscapes.

Harling Woods has a range of public paths that are ideal for walking, jogging and dog walks.

The magnificent beeches lining the A134 at this site provide the setting for one of the most attractive picnic spots within the forest.

The splendour of the beech canopy affords an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

An open area next to the car park gives opportunities for those wishing to picnic or play during their stay. Here, heather and grasses add a splash of colour and interest for insects such as butterflies and bees, reminiscent of the former Breckland heaths.

Snowdrops in the forest
