Opening Season

Happy Days Retro Vacations is kitsch camping at its best!

Set in the Suffolk countryside, a short distance from the amenities of Saxmundham and the beautiful Suffolk coast. This vintage site has strong credentials, having once again been featured in The Times newspaper’s Top 20 Glamping Sites in the UK for 2016, making it four successive years and the only Suffolk site to make the list. The campsite is also featured in the new edition of Cool Camping’s ‘Glamping Getaways’ book published in April 2016.

The small garden site offers four camping pitches for tents or retro caravans/campervans as well as their own six fabulous American Trailer and Elsie, a retro caravan that flies the flag for Britain. The site is ideal for couples, families and exclusive hire for groups is welcome (perfect for landmark birthdays or vintage hen do parties!). With a huge garden including a children’s play area featuring a vintage Army truck, fire pits, family style shower facilities and a poly tunnel social space for rainy days this is a truly wonderful retro site.

The Airstreams are all vintage dating from the 1950s to the early 1970s and are individually designed keeping as much of their original flavour as possible. The bygone beauties are Betsy, Dee Dee, Gloria, Peggy, Annie and new girl Nettie the 1972 Avion. All are family friendly and Betsy and Nettie are dog friendly. Happy Days Retro Vacations offers weekend breaks, short breaks and week-long stays.
