Holiday Under the Stars in Suffolk

Home to stunning coastline, charming villages and wonderful winding waterways, there’s so much to love about the county of Suffolk.

It has endless appeal and the more time you spend outdoors exploring its magnificent trails and beaches, and spotting local wildlife, the more you’ll come to love this picturesque corner of England. And there’s no better way to experience Suffolk’s natural beauty than a camping holiday.

But with so much to see and do, where do you start? Explore your wilder side here.

Coastal Camping

For any discerning visitor, no camping trip to Suffolk is complete without a day by the seaside. Lowestoft is the top draw for visitors; it’s the most easterly town in Britain and is famous for its incredible sunrises. It’s no wonder this lovely spot is dubbed the Sunrise Coast.

If you have the kids in tow, head to Kessingland for a beach break with bite! The beach here is long and quiet, perfect for a relaxing day with the family - but when you’re ready for a change of pace, head to Kessingland’s Africa Alive! safari park. Ideal for fun-loving families and, best of all, it’s right next-door to the Kessingland Club Site - the perfect pitstop for a coastal camping break.

Picturesque Villages

Away from the coastal seaside towns, Suffolk is packed with historic towns and villages. Lavenham is one of Suffolk’s most idyllic 'Wool Towns' that’s home to beautiful 15th century timber-framed houses, while the fishing village of Orford boasts the ruins of a 12th century castle, built by Henry II. Don’t miss the chance to visit Sutton Hoo near Woodbridge, where an ancient burial site of an Anglo-Saxon king and his treasured possessions resides.

If you fancy getting away from it all to recharge your batteries, a few days spent exploring Suffolk’s beautiful countryside will do the trick. Immerse yourself in the beauty of rural Suffolk and stay at the Polstead Club Site with its tranquil location, right on the edge of a conservation area. Walk or cycle the trails of the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, visit the pretty 13th century Lindsey St James’s chapel, explore East Bergholt Place Gardens, or wander the network of woodland paths and nature trails around the village of Polstead.
