General

  • Medieval glamping
  • Sleep like a real king
  • Wonderful settings and castle views

Sleep like a king at Mettingham Castle Lodge and Castleview Vacations just outside Bungay in Suffolk: they even come complete with castle views.

The roomy and toasty tents here each have a bench and table as outside seating and are on private decking with a gas barbecue. All have woodburning stoves and are a short walk away from the showers and loos.

Mettingham Castle Lodge is about 14 acres in size and guests are very welcome to walk around its fields to meet the Mettingham menagerie, consisting of Tamworth pigs, Norfolk and Suffolk sheep, goats, rare breed hens, horses and exceedingly friendly Kunekune pigs.

When it's time to fire up the barbie, the Mettingham farm shop can sort dinner goodies directly to your tent, from a range of home-reared meat, fresh eggs, seasonal vegetables and homemade chutney and jams. We're pleased to report that local wine and cider can be delivered too.

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful tent lovely grounds nice and peaceful. Comfy beds and warm duvets so that was lovely.

    Disliked: 

    We did atrive really late and we didnt expect people to be there to greet us but it was hard to find our tent in pitch black so ended up in some nettles. But next day we thought someone would be around to explain ins and outs but we didnt see anyone. I realise its a working farm so understandable but we did think someone would pop in. Showers were cold but to be expected as they were gas powered and didnt take anything away from the lovely experience.

Local attractions

The purty Georgian town of Bungay is a mile and a quarter from Mettingham Castle Lodge and Castleview Vacations and, fittingly for proximity to a site with medieval tents, is steeped in history and has its own castle. Bungay and Waveney Valley Golf Club is there too for those who want to tee off, and there are also seven pubs, one with its own medieval banqueting hall and one with a microbrewery...

The closest beaches and coastlines are at lovely Lowestoft and Southwold, about 12 and 15 miles away respectively; Lowestoft first, we think, for its lighthouse, museums and the most easterly location in the UK at Ness Point.

At Southwold, the amusement pier stretches out from a sand and shingle beach edged by wooden chalets and a promenade; putting greens and boating ponds are here too and are enjoyed by families. For a quieter and more secluded beach, go to the shingle of Denes Beach next to the River Blyth where there are good walks, dune climbs and beaut views over the estuary.

You could also learn to sail or canoe at Oulton Broad Water Sports Centre (sustainability courses are also available locally), or drive 15 miles to the museums, old buildings and excellent shops of medieval Norwich.
