A Busy Summer at Head Fen

It is proving to be a busy summer here at Head Fen Country Retreat, with all of our lodges and pods fully booked, new shepherd’s huts just arrived, and the camping and caravan site running at full steam.

We are situated on the Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk border in the heart of sparsley populated fenland. Easily accessible from London and the midlands, Head Fen Country Retreat offers visitors the chance to unwind in rural bliss, with the added luxury of premium accommodation and private hot tubs.

After the constant disappointment of lockdowns causing cancellations and postponements of holiday plans, we are so pleased to have been able to reschedule bookings and create new places to stay around the retreat, meaning guests can once again enjoy the famous fen skies and rich ecology the area is renowned for.

The New Shepherd’s Huts

Our two new luxury Shepherd’s Huts have been delivered and installed, and we are thrilled with how fantastic they are. We have situated the huts by our Snake Lake and called them Kingfisher & Wren. We have designed the huts’ layout and location to be ideal for fishing. Deck areas have been built on the lake frontage where you can cast a line or simply watch the natural world go by.

The huts are proving very popular so we have limited availability, contact us now for more details.

Your own private hot tub

The prospect of having your own private hot tub for your lodge or cottage stay at Head Fen Country Retreat is one of the most popular attractions of our holidays. Each lodge has its own decked terrace area and large private hot tub. These are regularly cleaned and kept at just the right levels of healthy ph and chemical balance. In accordance with our strict hygiene standards, we completely drain, clean, and refill each tub between bookings. All that’s left for you to do is to soak away your cares in the glorious bubbles!
