Kings Forest Caravan Park: Red sky at night.. (photo added by  on 05/07/2021)

General

  • Quiet adults-only caravan park in a Suffolk forest location
  • A 10-minute drive from Bury St Edmunds and an hour from the coast
  • Next door to forest, West Stow Country Park and Anglo-Saxon village

This peaceful adults-only site has direct access to acres of green space, including Kings Forest and West Stow Country Park. With walks along the river Lark also on offer close by, there's little wonder that Kings Forest Caravan Park is held in such high regard among caravanners, who appreciate the peace and quiet of the place and the dog-friendly site rules.

Part of a working farm called Wideham Farm, Kings Forest Caravan Park has smart stable facilities for visiting horses. The adjacent forest and the surrounding Suffolk countryside make excellent turf for hacking across too.

They’re just as good for walking and pedalling, and with direct access to the forest, woodland wanderings and wildlife encounters are close to hand; look out for fallow deer, wild foxgloves and kestrels swooping overhead. Plus, the Suffolk Wildlife Trust at Lackford Lakes is just a five-minute drive away for conservation fans.

This is a prime position to relax in too: peace and quiet are highly prized out here, and the proprietors ask everyone to kindly keep it down after 10pm… the horses need their beauty sleep…

From the manager...

I am very sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay at Kings Forest Caravan Park in our Sunset View Pod. I just wanted to point out that the pictures show what you are booking for your stay so I am sorry that you were disappointed with your choice.

We have holiday homes and lodges available on site, I hope that you might consider them if you were to return to enjoy our unique location.

Best wishes

    What's not to like. Modern fresh facilities, lovely owners, friendly campers. Quite level well drained pitches, good TV reception - Just a lovely adult only park.

    Disliked: 

    Ok... to be REALLY picky, no motorhome point and although not a busy road adjacent, the silence is broken by vehicles going by. Not all mobile networks get a good signal - nothing unusual for a campsite.

    Fabulous site, the access to the forest is what really makes this site superb. It’s very peaceful and immaculately kept. Lovely helpful lady who met us on arrival (owners sister I believe). Great surrounding area - we will be back and next time will pre book the pub!

    This was our first experience of staying in a pod and it was great. More space and electric light and socket. Lovely space around. Raised off the ground. Fabulous location for walking the dog.

    Disliked: 

    Website did not do justice as not obvious that the picnic bench was for pod or that there was electricity in pod as was in a non electric field for other users.
    Only downside was long trip to toilet block and emergency portoloos with light and water in our field.

    I highly recommend Kings Forest Caravan Park. It’s a beautiful site for your trip away which is very spacious and has very good facilities (clean toilets & showers with hot water, drinking water, pot washing and electric pitches). The family that run the site are lovely as well.
    The forest is lovely for walking through. We did walk to a pub called The Guinness Arms, which I also highly recommend, but note it is approx 1 hour walk across fields.
    We will visit the campsite again.

Local attractions

A walk away, West Stow Country Park is a top spot for Suffolk strolls and rides, with a pair of hides for birdwatching and whole platoons of wildlife gathering on the lake and along the River Lark. As an added bonus, there’s a reconstructed Anglo-Saxon village where you can see how life was way back in the Dark Ages.

The ancient market town of Bury St Edmunds is 10 minutes’ drive away if you’re minded to continue the historical theme: medieval Moyse’s Hall is home to a fab museum, while Ickworth House, built in neoclassical style for the earls of Bristol, is a splendid country house. After that, head on to the half-timbered, brightly hued cottages of Lavenham, half an hour away.

There’s wildlife aplenty around here too, and trails to spot it at Cavenham Heath National Nature Reserve (15 minutes): blue tits and woodpeckers are often seen in the woods, while on the heath, lizards, adders and stone curlews flit around the remains of World War II defences.

More exotic residents can be met at Banham Zoo (40 minutes), from Bactrian camels to silvery marmosets and gelada baboons, and seals can sometimes be spotted from the cliffs and beach at Felixstowe, an hour away. Even without glimpses of its whiskered marine mammals, the seaside town makes a top day trip, with beach walks, harbour cruises and tours of 18th-century Landguard Fort finished off with fish and chips.

  • Ickworth House, Park and Gardens (6.3 miles)
  • Grimes Graves (12.0 miles)
  • Newmarket Racecourses (12.3 miles)
