Nestled on the banks of a lake, this beautiful shepherd hut is perfect for both a romantic getaway and to unwind and relax.

With a beautifully designed interior and stunning lakeside location this picturesque retreat is ideal for couples wishing to experience a spot of glamping with contemporary and stylish touches. Whether it's spotting wildlife, walking through the woods or angling from decking there are plenty of ways to enjoy the immediate area and should guests wish to venture further afield, there are plenty of attractions to suit all tastes. Nearby Thetford Forest offers excellent walking and cycling routes and high wire attractions for the more daring.

Had all items required to cook anything, lovely position over looking the water. There were several walks starting from accommodation. The owners and Rob were very helpful even setting me up a Kingfisher perch so I could photograph the Kingfishers.

Kingfisher Hut is cosy with attractive views over the lake. We saw otters in the river on the property, and muntjac deer. Good location for Norwich, and interesting viewing at RAF Lakenheath.
