The tents and campsite
The campsite is an enclosed one acre field with three bell tents called Oak, Skylark and Conker, our communal camp kitchen, planters full of salads and herbs (as long as the slugs stay away!), pizza oven and campfire circle. Each tent is a 5m wide, traditional bell tent, made in England using proper canvas.
Spacious, light and furnished with your comfort in mind, each tent features a king size bed with bedlinen and blankets, rugs, chairs, lights and optional rollout beds for children. There is a socket hidden away to charge electrical devices. Wood burning stoves will provide additional warmth inside with seating for all on the deck outside in addition to a BBQ and a single gas burner for that 'morning brew' and, of course, the essential tin of homemade cake or biscuits to enjoy as you settle in.
Each tent has its own bathroom in the converted cart lodge, just a couple of minutes walk across the field so not quite an ensuite but as close as you can get in a field. Featuring flushing loos, hot showers and space to store your wash bags and complimentary towels, there is also a utility area for all with washing-up facilities, a washing machine and clothes line.
Food, cooking and fire
The camp kitchen is in the corner of the camping field and has all you need – and more. A gas camping stove and a Baby Belling stove are available for cooking plus storage boxes, seating and a fridge to share with your fellow campers. All pans, utensils, crockery, cutlery and glasses are provided. There is a tap with drinking water behind the kitchen and each bell tent.
The campfire is a place for all so please be considerate and share those marshmallows!
We are particularly proud of the wonderful food and drink produced in Suffolk and we have put together an honesty shop for all your essential provisions (still looking for a Suffolk marshmallow maker!). You can preorder a breakfast hamper filled with tasty local bacon, sausages, apple juice, bread, tomatoes, mushrooms and fresh eggs. We also have a BBQ pack with locally reared Aberdeen Angus beef burgers and other goodies.
