Wild foxgloves in King's Forest

General

  • Quiet forest site with equestrian centre and stables
  • A 20-minute drive from Bury St Edmunds and an hour from the coast
  • Next door to forest, West Stow Country Park and Anglo-Saxon village

Don’t leave the horse behind when you take a holiday: quarter your steed alongside your good self in the Suffolk countryside at King’s Forest Caravan Park.

A couple of minutes’ drive from the village of West Stow, this peaceful adults-only site is surrounded by the mixed woods of Kings Forest and West Stow Country Park, where trails for walkers, bikers and horse riders wind through an ancient landscape of heath and lake alongside the River Lark.

Part of a working farm and equestrian centre, Kings Forest Caravan Park has stable facilities for visiting horses, and there’s coaching in dressage and equine behaviour if you and four-hoofed friend need a refresher course. The adjacent forest and the surrounding Suffolk countryside make cracking 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.

The 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...

    The area was beautiful, a huge forest with plenty of walks and different things to look at, the owners were incredibly helpful, when we first arrived they explained how everything works and gave us some information for different areas to eat and a guide for the forest, as it was our first trip in our campervan and we wasn't aware we had to bring our own electric hook ups they provided us with some which we thought was very kind of them.
    Would highly recommend.

Utterly beautiful camp site - perfect23/09/2019

    This was our first time at a camp site and we absolutely loved here. Such nice people that run it, relaxed, helpful and friendly. The actual site is beautiful and tranquil and the facilities are modern and clean. The location was just perfect too, opposite a country park and on the edge of an enormous forest which meant our greyhound could run and run with no fear of him getting to a road. I cannot rate this place highly enough and we are already thinking of a time that we can return, just to chill out and relax! :)

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 20 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 like a little bit of Rome on the Fens. After that, head on to the half-timbered, brightly hued cottages of Lavenham or have a go at axe making at Grime’s Graves prehistoric flint mine; both are 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.
