THE GLAMPER'S GUIDE TO GLAMPING IN SUFFOLK

When you think of luxury, what comes to mind? A four-poster bed with goose-down pillows? A cruise across the Pacific in a super yacht?

What about a night in a tent?

Don’t worry, we don’t mean the kind of tent you’d take to spend a rainy weekend in the corner of a field – we’re talking about the kind of tents that can make hotel rooms look shabby. Yurts, huts, tipis and bell tents: these are the newest forms of luxury accommodation. Join in the Suffolk glamping revolution.

GLAMP IN STYLE AT HAPPY DAYS RETRO VACATIONS

At Happy Days Retro Vacations near Saxmundham on The Suffolk Coast you can turn back time to the 60s, and stay in your own vintage American Airstream trailer! Happy Days' five Airstream trailers were built between the 1950s and 70s, and traveled thousands of miles across mountains and golden American plains before being brought to Suffolk. They have since been restored to beautiful retro condition (think gingham, aluminium chassis, and vintage wood interiors). Happy Days also offer a petite British caravan from the 70s, and four tent pitches, making them one of the smallest, coolest and friendliest glamping sites around.

Summer 2019 sees the launching of Red Shed Movies, an onsite cinema in The Red Shed where classic family movies will be shown free, twice a week for campers during the summer months.

STAY IN A SAFARI TENT AT BOUNDARY FARM

At Boundary Farm Glamping, you can relax in their safari tent with its very own shower and toilet facilities, wood burner, fully equipped kitchen, fire pit, bbq and cosy bedding. After a peaceful night’s sleep, you can discover the Suffolk countryside and wildlife in the 2 acre field.  Close by is the quaint village of Kelsale and the coastal resorts of Aldeburgh and Southwold to enjoy the beaches, ice creams and maybe some delicious fish and chips.

GLAMPING IN NATURE AT SECRET MEADOWS

Deep within the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Secret Meadows is a romantic space amid 115 acres of woodland and meadows that have remained untouched for generations. Go to sleep beneath the stars in a shepherds hut or luxury lodge tent, and wake to the morning chorus of hundreds of birds singing as the sun rises. With animals grazing in the surrounding meadows, and the option available to have a country breakfast hamper and treats from the farm pantry delivered to your tent door, a stay at Secret Meadows is a true rural escape, and one so lovely you won’t want to leave.

STAY COSY IN A COSY POD

Just outside the historic town of Ipswich you can stay at Cosy Camping in a charming wooden pod.  It's just like camping but without having to struggle with putting up your tent! You will be able to relax and enjoy the Suffolk countryside but there are plenty of attractions nearby to keep the whole family occupied too.
