Schlamping is the new glamping at Godwick Hall. Admittedly it’s a poorly constructed conglomeration of glamping, champers and shepherds, but we feel it provides a good description of life in our new huts.
We now have three lovingly crafted and quirky Shepherd Huts tucked into a small wooden glade behind Godwick Hall.
Each one boasts fabulous unspoilt views of Godwick’s landscape and sunsets.
Close to nature, but within striking distance of the luxury of Godwick Hall, they offer visitors to Norfolk a chance to really embrace this beautiful county with its beautiful big skies and wonderful sunsets.
The three huts come with some fabulous mod cons and have lovely design features, such as oak wooden floors, butler sinks and a narrow boat wood burners. Hot running water, a mini fridge, microwave, oak work top, loo, shower and of course a lovely double bed.
As well as a comfortable night’s sleep, guests in each hut can order a Continental breakfast to be delivered to the hut or with prior arrangement a cooked breakfast can be booked and served at Godwick Hall.
Each hut remains true to Godwick’s landscape that is dotted with sheep, so we have named them after three of our favourite sheep breeds, the Norfolk Horn, Herdwick Hideaway and Ryeland Retreat.
Come and give them a try, so far everyone that has stayed in them loves them. They are uber cute and cool!!
The Norfolk Horn
The Norfolk Horn is a black faced sheep breed native to Norfolk. Famously crossed with the short, stocky Southdown to create the Suffolk sheep breed, which we keep at Godwick. Fitting that we should name a hut after it, rather than the innuendo that others may construe. It’s a smart hut with full ensuite facilities and mod cons.
The Ryeland Retreat
Searching for illiteration with retreat, we came up with the Ryeland, one of the oldest English sheep breeds in the UK. Bred by monks of Leominster in Herefordshire and grazed on rye pastures, giving them their name. It also looks a lot like a Southdown, which we have at Godwick. It’s a smart hut in with full ensuite facilities and mod cons.
The Herdwick Hideaway
Our favourite sheep breed the Herdwick. Native to the Lake District of Cumbria it’s a hardy breed that lives on the hills. It has a strong white face and a greyish long, straggly fleece. Our third hut is decorated in Norfolk cream and has full ensuite facilities and mod cons.
