We booked this holiday as a 40th Birthday treat for friends who never get time to walk and talk these days. And this holiday has been exactly what we hoped it would be!
From the tent (so carefully laid out with thoughtful additions) to the enjoyable scenic walks, to the delicious platter with homemade food to the homemade cake and wine for my birthday.....its all absolutely 'hit the spot'.
MarGins works because it gets it all right - the simplicity whilst attending to the little details, the 'soft touch' customer service without being overly attentive and the motivational texts and gifts.
Thank you for some great memories xxx
This is my second holiday with MarGins (first at Dreamy Hollow campsite and now at Beeston Regis.
You provide everything to make an enjoyable, hassle free break.
The tent is amazing as always with the attention to detail - amazing homemade cake, local produce, everything equipped in the kitchen, everything for the dog (Tinker) and human.
I love looking at the very useful magazines, guides, tide times and bus timetable in bed so I can plan for the next day. These were of great help.
Tinker dog is very happy to and loved reading the 'Barking Bugle - Dogs Holiday Guide' Woof, Woof, Woof and 5 Paws Approved.
As you know I have now asked you to put some plans in place for a mini glamping break and the walking the full coastal path next year.....I can not wait!!!
Highly recommend MarGins

Thank you 🙂
What a fantastic surprise when we arrived at Deepdale Camping, with the scorched grass and the beautiful tent with the attention to detail, flowers in vase, local produce, bunting and fairly lights, Wow! I felt like I was in ‘Out of Africa’ I was waiting for someone to wash my hair! I felt utterly pampered thanks to Gin and Mark. We had a fantastic time glamping with Gin and Marks hospitality, Thank you for everything x
The weather wasn't always kind to us but it didn't matter as we had everything we needed to keep warm. All the little extra touches make all the difference. We will definitely be back.
What can I say? It has been a wonderful experience and more. Thank you! I'm so pleased I found you in The Simple Things magazine.
I have loved it! Especially the saltmarshes, boats and small villages. These are the things that are so different to my part of the world. I plan to do the walk next May/June so will be in touch and please, if you decide to come down under do let me know, I would love to share my part of the world with you!
You have done the glamping so well. I was warm, comfy and well fed. It was so good to find 'home' waiting after a days walk.
I will certainly be others in my part of the world so look out for more Aussies!
And Good Luck, it's a great concept, you have so much to share on the Norfolk Coast.

What a magical experience!
A weekend of 'firsts' for me. First Glamping trip, first walking holiday and first time solo! and I loved it all xx
The blue skies have gone on forever, the walking long deserted stretches, the wildlife and flowers and picturesque villages have been perfect and exactly what I needed. Thanks so much for the great 'Sandmartin' itinerary.
Most of all I must mention 'the tent' and all that came with it! I loved being cocooned beneath the bunting and fairy lights, so comfortable and cosy. So well catered for with all the tasty Norfolk produce - and 'Mums' cake should carry a health warning - so addictive! My compliments too to the hens for their tasty eggs 🙂
I watched both the sunset and the sunrise - me and the wildlife!
I smiled all weekend and plan to return to do the rest of the coastline.
Thanks so much Gin and Mark x
We have just finished the Lapwing holiday, walking from Cromer to Hopton-on-Sea with our dog and loved every minute. From the moment I contacted MarGins to the moment we completed the walk the whole experience was brilliant and we felt totally looked after. On the first day, after walking for 12 miles in the rain (love the typical British summer!!) arriving at the first campsite to see our tent all set up and Gin waiting for us was so welcoming. The hamper full of local goodies for us and the dog treats for our pooch such a lovely touch. To be able to have a tasty breakfast then carry on walking while the “tent elves” did their thing made the whole experience hassle free.
We cannot recommend MarGins enough. Thank you for such a memorable few days xx
"I didn't want a luxury glamping experience. As a single parent I just wanted a way to camp that wouldn't be too hard work! This was perfect, the tent was not fancy - it's just a really nice, very well designed and sturdy one, with all the kit you might bring yourself. Having everything set up and taken down for us made this just a great, fun, hassle free outdoor holiday for us and we're already planning the next one"
What a wonderful adventure – made so special by your attention to detail Gin. We loved coming back exhausted to our cosy tent at the end of each day. You have made them so beautiful and put so much love and care into every last detail that we couldn’t help but enjoy it despite the slight downturn in weather and England losing the football!! Our Evening Platter tonight was absolutely delicious – thank you.
What an amazing hassle-free way to have the camping experience and Maggie loved her bed and all her treats too.
We are so grateful to you. Many many thanks and love x
Gin, Thank you so much.
This has been the most wonderful Mini-Moon we could have possibly imagined or have hoped for.
It has felt truly special.
Thank you for all your help and guidance. We will make sure we recommend this trip to everyone!
Lots of love

We booked Margins as a one-off luxury for a special celebration and now we want to save up for it every year! The safari tents are second to none, kitted out with everything you could think of needing whilst you’re camping (cheese grater, clothes pegs, even a pack of cards). We hired two of them and also their huge robust and beautifully decked gazebo for a party. Gin was super helpful throughout the planning process and put me in touch with wonderful Burns Valley Catering who did a BBQ for us.
Thank you Margins!
We recently walked the coast path to Cromer with our dog Maggie and loved arriving exhausted each night to the welcome of our beautifully equipped tent, including dog bed and treats! Gin has thought of everything. Unlike the rest of the country we had chilly weather but we felt so cosy and warm. The beds were really comfy and it was great being able to cook up a delicious breakfast with all the local goodies she left for us each day. I would highly recommend this way of doing an amazing walk.
“I am delighted to have MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays feature on The Outdoor Guide. The Norfolk Coastline is spectacular and the perfect place for a family walking holiday.”
We did a three day walk with MarGins who couldn’t have been more helpful and considerate of our needs and those of our dogs. Their suggestions and support made sure we could relax and enjoy the incredible scenery while our dogs roamed safely enjoying the space and freedom. It was one of the best walking holidays we have ever had. We particularly liked the dog friendly pubs and accommodation – MarGins thought of everything.
Big thanks to Ginny from all the Hensleys, we can’t wait to come back.
“Ginny arranged a fantastic coastal walking tour for us from Hunstanton to Cromer. We loved every minute of the walk and I cannot recommend this glorious coastline, which is hauntingly beautiful in all shifting light of the day, too much. One of the best walks I have ever done. Thank you, Ginny,!”
Beginning of August 2017, my husband and I did the 84 mile walk from Hunstanton to Hopton to raise money for two great causes, Hillside Animal Sanctuary and Bath Gateway Out and About Club. I can't thank the tent elves of MarGin's enough. Firstly, for their kindness and support throughout. For meeting us at the end of day one with big smiles and a welcome hug. For the amazing tent, cosy and comfy and full of such thoughtful touches that fill you with joy and gratitude. To the yummy stocked hamper of delicious local delights. We are both vegan and they happily provided us with lots of lovely treats showing great care. The walk itself was wonderful, though challenging at times and slighty scary over the clifftops, the scenery, wildlife and landscape you see is simply stunning. Our great highlight was watching the seals at Horsey and the amazing sunset at Stiffkey. This trip will leave amazing memories with us forever.
Thank you Mark and Gin, you are the best. Hope to return again for a nice relaxing break xxx Hayley
“We stayed with MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays and had a stress-free time as Nellie was provided for throughout. When we arrived, everything was set up including a dog bed, dog towel, eco-friendly poo bags, bowls and treats. We couldn’t have asked for more from MarGins, they even provided us humans with hot water bottles……. thank you MarGins, we look forward to seeing you again” Helen
Just completed a fantastic week with MarGins Glamping Holidays. I did the 47 mile Curlew package from Huntstanton to Cromer with my dog and I have to say that Gin and Mark looked after us so well, all I needed to do was walk. The support that I was given, the fantastic food, comfortable bed and wonderful Oztent (that was fully tested by the English summer weather by the way!), made our walk such an amazing and memorable experience. I cannot recommend MarGins highly enough...Thanks for such a great and memorable experience guys. Will
“Best holiday for dogs and family walking .....
The Norfolk Coast isn't just dog friendly; it is dog Nirvana. We have completed many walks and trails around the UK and this holiday was one of the easiest and most fun for us and the dogs.
The coastal path allows lead free walking (though they must be under control around the birds) along miles of open beach, marshland and pine forest. The scenery was spectacular, the pubs welcoming with dog treats seeming on tap and Ginny couldn't have been more helpful with advice on how to get the best from our walk.
If you like to walk and holiday with your dog I cannot recommend MarGins too highly”
We have just enjoyed a back to nature, wellbeing weekend with this lovely couple and practitioners. Their hospitality is exceptional! I am not a camper, as such, but Gin and Mark made this weekend so easy and we felt completely looked after. Their small attention to detail efforts have huge rewards in my opinion. They are clearly expert in what they do. I felt like we spent time with long lost mates and the laughs were endless. Well done Gin and Mark and "thank you" for all you did this weekend to make our stay so pleasant. The 'rhuberry' was delicious! � Good luck with all your future events, you truly deserve amazing success xx
We did the Cromer to Hopton route and on both nights, had our lovely welcoming tent pitched right by the cliffs - first day views of the sunrise, wrapped in a blanket and a hot cup of tea, were just perfect!
The tent was so cosy! Everywhere I looked, I'd find something that was a luxury - magazines, real coffee, hot water bottles, the list is endless! Thanks so much, Gin: absolutely perfect - and yes, we got right to the end!
Highly recommend this 5 star glamping provided by Gin and Mark. Nothing was too much trouble and we were treated like royalty with 5 star service, tents with cosy little touches and exceptional locally sourced food and wine included. All this and joyous company too! Hope to see you again guys..corton beach?? Xxx
We spent four wonderful days walking the diverse terrain of the north Norkolk coast. Mark and Gin ensured that every detail was perfect - we particularly enjoyed the daily hamper packed with local produce. We can highly recommend a holiday with Margins!
Wow! A truly wonderful experience. Having cycled 70+ miles on one of the hottest days of the year to arrive to the warmest of welcomes from Gin (and a delicious glass of cold Norfolk Apple Juice) and an amazing Glamping set-up with great attention to detail and so well equipped. 100% recommended. I'm sure you will be telling everyone about your experince just as I have done since returning.
We saw crabs fighting and caught some.
We got really muddy....I loved it!!

Thanks for supporting our 4Cycle ride. Every single detail was perfect from fresh chilled Norfolk apple juice on arrival to our delicious camp breakfast. Gin is a professional, courteous and went the extra mile to support our tour. Highly recommended.
It was indeed a very enjoyable experience. The luxury of being able to walk and enjoy one’s surroundings without any encumbrance was uplifting to say the least, reinforced by arriving at the end of one’s walk with tent already in situ. We really appreciated the attention to detail in both the tent and your supporting literature – the logistics background was self-evident!
Thank you both for a very welcome break and for the very high standard of organisation. As an ex-military officer I was seriously impressed!
