General

  • 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.

    Just about everything on this site was good for what we wanted. Not too many pitches, not crammed together as so many are, provisions provided, although some were to order. The place is very secluded so be warned. It was an hours walk to the nearest large village Halesworth although only 5 minutes to the nearest pub, which served good pub grub.
    The hosts were very helpful as well.
    For us it was a great relaxing break, exactly what we were looking for.

    Wonderful small campsite run by a lovely family. Great location - good chance to see the stars at night! Really helpful to be able to buy milk, yogurt and a few home-grown items from the little store area. Showers and loos were spotless.

    This is such a lovely site. Pitches feel spacious and flat. Loved the facilities, the wash room was exceptionally clean with lovely touches. I read reviews about the facilities before booking as we were going to a wedding during our stay and needed somewhere suitable to get ready, it was perfect right down to the full length mirror. The owners are so friendly and nothing was too much trouble, they even lent us a tie for my son to wear with his suit as he forgot his😀
    This is in out top 3 sites that we have used in 25 years of camping and one we are sure to return to.
    We visited Halesworth which isn't far away, had a great breakfast and some lovely little shops and tea rooms and past a vineyard up the road as well which we will visit next time. Had a great meal with local ale at the pub 5 mins walk away, perfect weekend.

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

So pleased that you had such a great time - happy to help with the tie! Look forward to seeing you again next year. Thanks for the lovely review.

    Everything! Really family friendly site with spacious pitches. Recommend hiring a fire basket and buying logs as we enjoying toasting marshmallows on a roaring fire most evenings. Owners are great hosts who are keen to make the site a success. Very relaxing and our son spent the week playing with new found friends. Already planning our next trip.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. Would have liked a washing machine but Halesworth has a laundrette. I think you would need a car to camp here.

Directions


If travelling from the A12, come to Halesworth. Go straight over 3 roundabouts. After the third, turn left immediately (signposted Wisset). Follow this road until you reach Rumburgh. Turn right at the village sign and recreation ground. Pass a row of houses on the right. is on the left after these houses.

If travelling from Norwich direction, turn right off the A144 (down Grub Lane, signposted Rumburgh) and follow the road until you reach The Street. is on the right.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Framlingham Castle (11.8 miles)
  • Somerleyton Hall and Gardens (13.4 miles)
  • Fritton Lake Country World (13.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Elizabethan House Museum (19.2 miles)
  • Orford Ness National Nature Reserve (20.3 miles)

Cycle routes
