Collecting eggs for breakfast at College Farm, Norfolk.Collecting eggs for breakfast at College Farm, Norfolk.

Set on the edge of the gorgeous Norfolk Broads, College Farm is a family-friendly Feather Down Farm glamping site promising a warm welcome from the host family and accommodation in cosy safari-style tents with log-burners. They're known as lodges, and you can choose to upgrade to a 'frills' lodge with en-suite facilities and a wooden terrace.

The guided tours of the farm are well worth a go so you can get to grips with the land and with where your kids can roam and explore (which includes a barn stacked with hay for them to play in and a playground with a trampoline). You also get the chance to feed the animals and even keep one for the duration of your stay in your personal chicken coop (what better way is there to collect your eggs for breakfast?!) and to groom the horses. Best of all perhaps is the river running through the property, which you can experience by boat or canoe, or fish on.
