What's that rustling in the long grass? At The Wildings Elms Meadow, it could be any number of birds, mammals or insects, as this peaceful site in the quiet East Anglian countryside is passionate about protecting the local area's biodiversity.
Plenty of areas around this small-scale site have been left aside for nature, including a wildlife pond with a viewing platform. You're welcome to explore the grounds during your stay here – the little ones may particularly like the wooden playhouse hidden away in the greenery…
With spacious and secluded pitches, The Wildings Elms Meadow is a place to escape the hectic pace of everyday life and tune into the rhythms of the natural world, from the dawn chorus in the morning to the crackling of a fire and stargazing at night (firepits are available for hire, and wood can be bought from site staff).
Facilities here include a toilet and shower block, a communal kitchen area as well as access to running water and a washing-up area. Dogs are welcome to come and join you here, but they must be kept on leads at all times. Please note that parking is separate from the pitches to protect children and wildlife (wheelbarrows are available for arrivals and departures).
The Wildings Elms Meadow is on the edge of the small village of Aldeby. For shops, pubs, restaurants and snacks, you're about three miles from the pretty little town of Beccles (five minutes' drive).

There's lots to do in the local area, starting with the gorgeous Norfolk and Suffolk coast. The pretty seaside resort of Southwold (25 minutes' drive) is a great place to start, while nearby Walberswick (35 minutes) is a top pick for crabbing with the kids. If you're after a wild, natural beach that's great for a walk or picnic, try Covehithe (25 minutes), a mix of sand and shingle.
This site is also right on the edge of The Broads National Park, so hire a boat in Beccles (five minutes), try paddleboarding in Wroxham (40 minutes), or bring your binoculars and head off birdwatching at any one of the many nature reserves dotted around the surrounding area. Kids coming away with you will almost certainly appreciate trips to BeWILDerwood Norfolk (40 minutes) in the Broads too – it's got trails, swings and other forest-themed activities that are bound to keep them entertained for hours.
Time in town is easily arranged if you feel like a change of scene, whether you're heading to Norwich (35 minutes) for a wander around its castle and cathedral or fancy visiting breweries in Ipswich (an hour) or shopping in Bury St Edmunds (an hour).
