Sleep under the stars as a 700-acre family-friendly nature reserve in the heart of Norfolk is introducing overnight stays.

Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham, is set to launch a camping and glamping site for the first time in its history in 2024.

Next year, it will be open from early July until the end of August and there will be 24 tent pitches available to pre-book.

There will also be six bell tents, intended for a more luxurious glamping experience, which will each house a double bed and two single beds with twinkling fairy lights for decoration.

Owned by Bill and Deb Jordan since 2003, Pensthorpe was originally intended for bird and wildlife spotters.

Over time the reserve has diversified, adding family attractions including Hootz House and WildRootz play areas, all while maintaining its reputation for protecting wildlife.
