Norfolk is on track for another staycation boom this summer and in a quiet corner of the county you can now stay in railway carriages.
Amber's Bell Tent Camping at the 2,000-acre Little Massingham Estate has launched a new glamping experience.
The multiple-site business is run by couple Amber Wykes and Shaun Perkins who started it a decade ago at Mannington Hall.
It is now at five locations in Norfolk and two in the Midlands.
The sites are franchised and estate manager Oliver Birkbeck runs the Little Massingham one which has seven bell tents.
This year he has lovingly-restored two railway carriages dating back to the 1890s, which were rescued from demolition in King's Lynn.
Called Myrtle and Beryl they overlook a rewilding meadow and feature a bedroom compartment with double bed, a mini lounge and kitchen area with a pull-out bed, shower room and a woodburner.
