Like camping trips to be chilled? Prefer to do your own thing without the campsite equivalent of Basil Fawlty leaping out at you the mini-second you breach one of the million or so rules? Hither thee to the relaxed Haw Wood Caravan Park in Suffolk, where friendly new owners Georgina and Dan promote a seriously chilled-out atmosphere for old-style camping.
You won’t find a clubhouse, bar or noisy entertainment, at Haw Wood, just roomy pitches, plenty of room for the kids to run around (including a fab new playground), and close proximity to the Suffolk Heritage Coast and the county towns and villages of Aldeburgh, Southwold, Dunwich, Snape Maltings and Walberswick. It’s got everything you need including family bathrooms (with disabled access), a well-stocked shop for the essentials, and a café for when there are tummies a-grumbling. The farm is popular with stargazers, nature enthusiasts and birdwatchers who come for its closeness to RSPB Minsmere; there’s even a turtle dove cooing around on site – among other wildlife visitors…
Children and dogs are very welcome at Haw Wood: Georgina and Dan only ask that both are supervised and cleared up after (although they point out that leads are optional for children).

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request. Click the 'Make another booking like this' button on the confirmation page to take you back to your chosen campsite/park listing page so you can make your next booking straight away. Please note the same dates and party size will be used, so you'll need to change this if the number of people or child ages are different.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
