Autumn Glamping at Happy Valley

Our newest addition to Happy Valley Glamping is the Woodpecker Tree Temple. She’s been tried and tested this Summer and the feedback has been amazing to say the least.  

If you’ve never been Glamping then this is the perfect start. Ideal for families and couples alike. There’s more space in the calm, round, living space for those not so idyllic days. Complete with games. Dining table and chairs. Wood burner. Radio. Kitchenette - hob, toaster, kettle, cooking utensils, cafetière, plates, pots and pans etc. And basics such as Tea, coffee, salt, pepper and cooking oil. 

Take full advantage of our Norfolk Winter Deals where you can stay off peak for 3 nights for the price of 2 and there's some fab mid week one night deals.

It's finally taking shape.  Billy and Scottie have been full steam ahead and our Treehouse is well underway & i'm a little over excited about it all.

Autumn just seems to get more beautiful year on year. It's becoming my most favourite Month and the perfect time to grab a cheeky weekend away in North Norfolk. All our Cabins are heated so make yourself cosy and immerse yourselves in Nature.

We took a trip to Snettisham Beach to watch sundown. Just 15 minutes from Happy valley it's our Closest Beach. We walked over the dunes and my hairs stood up on end. There were thousands of birds all stood on the seas edge and this incredible sunset. We are so blessed to live in such a beautiful county. RSPB Snettisham is not as well publisised as the other nature reserves and we can share it with you.

Hot Tubbin, Health & Halloween

Super Excited to announce that our Wood Fired Hot Tub has arrived. We spent some time finding the best spot in the woods. Over looking the pond in a small glade. Surrounded by trees but with a view of the stars. The beginings of our Woodland Spa. 

We've spent the last week Testing, testing and more testing & now she's ready for you to experience. 

We are trialing it here with plans to add a hot tub or similar to each cabin next year. In the meantime you can book hour slots when you come to stay. You can book direct by calling 01485 600719 or emailing hello@happyvalleynorfolk.co.uk

HEALTH -

We are taking the art of Forest Bathing to another level - We have experienced the benefits of spending time in the Forest. Natures Therapy is almost instant and are so grateful that we can share this little bit of magic with you. 

 This is the healing way of Shinrin-yoku Forest Therapy, the medicine of simply being in the forest. Shinrin-yoku is a term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine - taken from http://www.shinrin-yoku.org/shinrin-yoku.html

Now not only can you experience Shinrin Yoku by visiting Happy Valley but you can also experience the health benefits of a Hot Tub in the forest - 

  • Improves sleep. ... 
  • Reduces stress and anxiety. ... 
  • Reduces arthritic and chronic pain. ... 
  • Lowers blood sugar. ... 
  • Lowers blood pressure. ... 
  • Promotes Healthier, Younger Looking Skin. ... 
  • Decreases Frequency of Migraines and Tension Headaches.

You can read a full run down on these health benefits HERE

It's safe to say it's gone down a treat here at Happy Valley. We wanted to create a haven for couples and families alike. A place to escape to and feel a milion miles away from the stresses of life. 

The Feedback has been just that. We've had guests who live not too far away say they still feel like they're in another world when they come to Happy Valley. We hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.

Connecting in Nature

A couple weeks later than planned but here's a wee blog I did on our Nature Walk around Happy Valley.

Today reminded me how beautiful Autumn is at Happy Valley. Annie and I went on a mini adventure complete with minion backpack to collect our treasures from which we were to create a masterpiece. Feelers out! Whats about!

Mini Adventure Glamping Norfolk
rural escape glamping norfolk

It wasn't long before we stopped to take a picture of the hedge. Yes the hedge, bursting with beauty. The wild berries and ivy waterfalls. Purples, pinks, yellows, who knew hedges could be so beautiful and fruitful. The bracken showing us that Autumn is here and blackberries providing a welcome snack..

So we sat down and created this for Nanas Birthday Present. 

Sometimes it can be a struggle to get out of the house, especially if the weather isn't ideal or spirits are low. But i've come to realise that as soon as we're out exploring then the therapy starts. It's incredible how just being outside, beauty is everywhere. In abundance. It almost instantly makes me feel better and the benefits are huge for all the family. It's free and it's accessible. 

Very Grateful for this day.

Feeling the Love at Happy Valley

So, a few Sundays ago I awake with a message from a friend to say we've been featured in the Mail Travel Section. Heart palpitations the lot - initially i thought it was online only but then heard we were in the Sunday newspaper on a double page spread. #hysteria 

We've been so overwhelmed with the feedback we've had from our new little site in rural Norfolk. 

Happy Valley holds so much magic that we feel totally blessed that we can share this with everyone else. 

It has been a long old slog with planning permissions and the great Scottie (my husband) building everything you see. Yes, he's the clever clogs with incredible vision and I often play devils advocate & look for possible criticisms that guests may have so it's not been plain sailing for him either.  It's so heart warming to hear the incredible feedback and I have learnt a few things along the way. Everyones ideals are all different. I can't react to every suggestion by redesigning the site & it's contents!

Then to the discover we were in the Telegraph Travel pages last Saturday was the absolute cherry on top. You may have noticed I do bang on a little about Forest Bathing (shinrin-Yoku) - it means taking in the Forest atmosphere and was developed in Japan during the 80s. It has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese Medicine.  There is lots of evidence showing how it can benefit your health (see previous blog) and Happy Valley is the perfect environment for this.

A Taste of Summer

Glamping at Happy Valley

IMG_5552.JPG

We've been getting a little excited this past week as the temperatures have reached 23 and the holidays have hit our household. Grateful for the longer days and warm sunshine.

Happy Valley is evolving as we add family glamping units. Scott has been busy building some very smart deckings for the bell tents this year. We've invested in a new 6m Bell Tent and added a King size bed & 2 singles. The next Tree Cabin is in progress and the Treehouse build soon to start! 

Our Brand New 6m Queenie Bell is up and raring to go. We thought we'd add another King Size Bed as I know we love a big bed and the occasions when the bambinos creep in means you won't be so tight on room. We also added 2 single beds which can be used alone or pushed together.  Camping Plates, bowls, cups, cutlery are included - BBQ, Washing up bowl & Gas camping stove. All with a Beautiful Woodland Garden to immerse yourselves in. Email hello@happyvalleynorfolk.co.uk or call Katy on 01485 600719

We've been eager to open up our site to more families in the holidays as it's a great environment to be in with your children. Raising our family at Happy Valley we spend endless hours in the woods. Creating our own mini adventures at the faraway tree and signature oak. Climbing fallen trunks and absorbing nature has definitely improved our lives. The forest is a magical place and with children it really does come alive with magic.

We also rear our own Short Horn cows on the farm so you can go a visit the cows and will often see the sheep on the surrounding fields. There's some fab off road trails to bike down with rolling routes through idyllic woodland.

Scientific Proof that Woodland Glamping can improve your Health!

Why Glamping at Happy Valley Norfolk can improve your health and nourish your soul.

Most people believe that the outdoors is good for us. Now there’s a ton of research proving that time out in nature is essential to our physical, psychological health and well-being.

Glamping Venue Norfolk

Reduce Stress

Immersing ourselves in the Forest aka “Forest Bathing” refers to time spent amongst the trees. This has now been scientifically proven as having a positive impact on reducing stress levels and lowering blood pressure. Forest Bathing is a long valued preventative medicine in cultures such as Japan but we’re only just cottoning on here in the West.

Lift your Mood

One reason Mother Nature may work as such a great stress-buster is through scent. The scent of fresh pine has even been shown to lower depression and anxiety. In addition to helping decrease stress levels, spending more time with nature shows a shift toward a more positive mood says Judith Heerwagon, a Seattle based environmental psychologist.

Have Better Sleep ZZZZZzzzzzzzz

 Evidence suggest that being amongst forests may pay a pivotal role in the sleep you get at night. The study found that being in nature improves physical activity levels, which in turn promote sound sleep at night. A new study shows exposure to a natural environment may help people get the sleep they need said lead author Diana Grisby – Toussaint.

Be More Creative

If you’re feeling  a little uninspired or lacking creativity then a break in the forest is the best remedy. According to David Strayer P.H.D a Professor of cognition and neural science at the university of Utah, modern multitasking overtakes brain areas that are involved in supressing distracting thinking creatively, and developing a sense of identity. David Stayer discovered that four days backpacking in nature improved peoples creativity by 50%.

Heal your Body as Well as your Mind

Nature doesn’t just have an effect on the mind. Roger S. Ulrich, PhD, director of the Center for Health Systems and Design at Texas A&M University, has found that nature can help the body heal, too.

In his most well-known study, Ulrich investigated the effect that views from windows had on patients recovering from abdominal surgery. He discovered that patients whose hospital rooms overlooked trees had an easier time recovering than those whose rooms overlooked brick walls. Patients able to see nature got out of the hospital faster, had fewer complications and required less pain medication than those forced to stare at a wall.

Like other researchers, Ulrich has found that simply viewing representations of nature can help. In a study at a Swedish hospital, for instance, he found that heart surgery patients in intensive care units could reduce their anxiety and need for pain medication by looking at pictures depicting trees and water.
