Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Glamping

Round the WoodsRound the Woods’ luxury yurts was featured in episode 1 of the new series: Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing on BBC2.

According to the BBC “Lifelong friends and comedic royalty Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer have more in common than just their love of laughter – on a more serious note, they have both suffered complex heart disease. Paul is an experienced fisherman, Bob a complete novice. Paul thought a tour of the country’s finest fishing spots might help Bob’s recovery, and along the way maybe they would learn something about each other.”

Bob took control of providing heart healthy food, having recovered from a triple heart bypass, as well as selecting interesting accommodation and they chose to stay in luxury yurts at Round the Woods during their Norfolk adventure.

“Bob and Paul stayed for two nights in October last year and were wonderful guests,” said Kate Symonds, partner at Round the Woods. “We were honoured to have them stay and try out a spot of glamping in our slice of beautiful Norfolk countryside. They were so friendly and funny and seemed quite excited to stay in yurts.”

Round the Woods is a small family-run luxury glampsite located near Weston Longville in Mid Norfolk and has two fully furnished luxury yurts set in 18 acres of meadow and woodland. It was set up in 2015 by Kate and Seb and their two young boys, Elliot and Dylan. Catch the episode on BBC iPlayer.
