  • "Very impressed with the site, it's cleanliness and friendly staff."

    Nothing would have been too much trouble. Whoever came up with the idea of the shepherds cabins was on a winner. Innovative. Glamping pods looked good too but our days of using them, on account of our age) are over!!! Adjacent facilities, i.e. shop, butchers etc excellent too. Look forward to a return visit.

  • "Enjoyable stay in a good location."

    Ideal for a short holiday. It was great being so near to the zoo and Bressingham wasn't far away. The bed was very comfortable and there was good use of the small space. The kitchen area was small and there was limited hanging space for clothes. Fine as there was only me there but I am not sure how a family with children would cope. The site was well maintained and the staff helpful and friendly.

  • "This was our first time staying at Applewood’s - stayed within the Cowslip shepherd hut."

    It was such a lovely experience - spacious, clean, comfortable and all the amenities we as a family of 4 required. The members of staff we met were friendly and welcoming, and the campsite it self looked clean and well maintained. Will definitely be visiting again!

  • "Lovely shepherds hut."

    Very clean and well laid out. Loved the privacy of the decking area. Great to hear the animals from the zoo next door.

  • "I was so impressed by the amazing staff."

    I was met by Karen the lovely manager who explained everything to me. The Cowslip hut really did exceed my expectations. It was so clean it sparkled! I was so warm and cozy even though the weather was not great. It was so wonderful being so close to the animals. You get a discount on re-entry an amazing bonus for animal lovers is hearing them at night. It was like being back in Africa! I found the site very peaceful as I was out of season. I wish I could have stayed longer!!!! Thank you so much
