- Quiet and family-friendly eco site
- Well placed for the Suffolk and Norfolk countryside and coast
- Eggs, apple juice and other local produce available for sale
Green Haven Camping has a greatly convenient setting, just the ticket for investigating the best of the Suffolk and Norfolk countryside – and an easy drive from the Suffolk seaside at Southwold and among market towns, heaps of hikes and plenty of good English pubs.
The owners of this eco site are developing it as a wildlife garden where people can pitch rather than a formally laid out site, to make a relaxing and secluded environment for camping. The camping area is in a field with grass kept long between pitches and along the site path, and plenty of native hedging and plants have been added to create hidden habitats for wildlife (and campers).
To help with the peaceful feel, the parking area is kept separate from the camping and cars can tow their caravans on and off the site. A garden trolley is provided for you to cart your tent and kit to your pitch. (The parking area is only a few metres from the camping area, but if this might be an issue for you, let the Green Haven team know in the 'Special requests' box when you book.)
Green Haven has a modern, clean and airy unisex toilet block with underfloor heating, wash facilities and showers, and a covered washing-up area. The toilets are flushed with harvested rainwater and much of the electricity on the Green Haven site is generated by their own field-mounted solar panels. There are also good recycling and composting facilities as guests are encouraged to produce as little landfill waste as poss.
The site also has a small reception area with lots of info on what to see and do all around, and its own eggs, apple juice and other local produce available for sale as well as camping supplies. Orders can be taken for fresh milk supplies and a nearby dairy provides yoghurts, butter and ice creams. A friendly pub is just up the road.
Green Haven want guests to have as great a time as possible and are always making new developments, so if you have any comments or suggestions, just let them know when you stay.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
Lovely quiet site with good eco credentials.

Stick to gentle countryside or beach strolls, or pootle along to more formal attractions like Sutton Hoo and the castles at Framlingham and Orford; all are in the area around Green Haven. The city of Norwich is about 45 minutes away.
The beaches of the Suffolk coast including Southwold, Aldeburgh and Lowestoft are half an hour or less away and are popular days out in the area for Lowestoft Lighthouse and the most easterly part of the UK at Nees Point; the famed Southwold beach chalets and pier, and festivals and the arts centre Snape Maltings at Aldeburgh.
Birdwatching buffs can take their binoculars to nearby RSPB Minsmere, or to Walberswick, to spy specimens among the heath and marshlands. The latter has a good beach for crabbing too – and you might also catch sight of a celebrity resident in the surrounds: rich peeps live here...
The Broads of Norfolk and Suffolk are a main draw for visitors to this part of England and a boat trip along their 120 miles or so of waterways is very much a must. Wildlife and fishing trips are also easy to arrange.
Dunwich and Beccles are a mere two of the villages and market towns around the region: leaf through the tourist brochures at Green Haven to find details of these and of local walks, swimming, horse riding, heaths and gardens to see.
