The Full Story


We are Anissa and Kevin Connor, we live with our three children in the main house at Waveney Lodge, Elms Road. We spent much of our early career working full on jobs in London but after losing a close loved one, we decided to pack it all in and brought a campervan. For six months, we drove through 18 European countries with our 6 month and 3 year old daughters. A kind of cathartic journey where we could process the grief and reassess what was important. During that journey, we parked up for the night on farmers fields, in woodlands, campsites, beaches and city centre car parks. We were exposed to the most magical places and experiences. People opened their homes and hearts to us in a way that we didn't expect, exposing us to the beauty of humanity. Over time, we built a dream of setting up a small intimate, camping/glamping site that offered an eclectic mix of the best bits of many places we experienced.

We didn't realise that dream for quite some time. We fell back into the London life for a while, had our son, Kasper, then covid hit. Again, we found ourselves reassessing life and made a very difficult decision to leave family and friends to pursue our pipe dream in late 2021. Given the major environmental and biodiversity challenges we're facing, it became increasingly important for us to ensure our children grow up understanding and feeling connected to nature so here we are...


We’re passionate about creating a special place where people can reconnect with each other and nature, make memories and maybe even life long friendships. We try to let the site establish a natural wilding feel with small cubby hole areas to explore and children to play. Quite a bit of our meadow is purposely left to rewild to maximise biodiversity.

We are delighted to welcome you and will do everything we can to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one.
