Estate Plans Glampsite and Music Festival

Raynham Estate, near Fakenham in Norfolk, has applied for permission to make this year’s pop-up yurt-based glampsite a permanent fixture.

Raynham Estate pop-up yurtLisa Wheeler, Raynham’s events manager, said they hope to run a full season from Easter to September next year with eight yurts. She said: “The accommodation is a great partner to the events and weddings that we hope to run once social distancing restrictions are relaxed again.

“We have had great feedback so far and hope that our glamping venture will flourish and expand as North Norfolk becomes ever popular as a holiday destination.”

Raynham is also planning a music festival for the May bank holiday in 2021, Covid dependent. “It would feature local bands and have a strong food and drink element, with a pop-up restaurant serving Norfolk produce including Aberdeen angus beef and venison from deer on the estate.”
