- Adventure and activity glamping on a quiet site in Suffolk
- Part of the Suffolk Academy, 15 minutes' drive from Bury St Edmunds
- Stay in a luxury converted US school bus sleeping up to six
Stateside or Suffolk? You won't have to choose between the two at American School Bus Glamping, as this fab site 15 minutes' drive from Bury St Edmunds brings together the best of both in a cool retro setting.
Located in a premier area of a larger campsite, the glamping on offer here is right next to the Suffolk Academy, a well-established adventure, fitness and activities centre with eight acres of facilities to explore.
But there's also a lot to get excited about when you take a look at the unit in its own right. The bus, a Texan import, sleeps up to six in true comfort and style. Highlights – and there are a lot of them – include its superb kitchen with a gas hob and fridge, the luxury on-board shower, a quality outdoor barbecue and a fab alfresco seating and dining space. There’s also underfloor heating and a clean-burning wood-fired stove to keep you warm. Finally, you can also look forward to hotel-quality Egyptian cotton bedding, duck down duvets and luxury towels.
The site is on the northern edge of the small village of Barrow, an easy drive from Bury's town centre and shops. Newmarket can be reached within a quarter of an hour if you travel in the other direction, while the centre of the university city of Cambridge is about half an hour from base.
