General

  • Small family-run site on a working arable farm 10 miles from Ipswich
  • 15 minutes' drive from Felixstowe beach on the Suffolk coast
  • Hire a firepit for keeping warm and toasting marshmallows

Cosy by name, cosy by nature – this small site in the Suffolk countryside is part of a working arable farm that’s been in the same family for more than 75 years. As guests, you are cordially invited to share this friendly corner of the Ramsey family home, 10 miles from Ipswich and easily accessible from the A14 and A12.

Peace, quiet and the great outdoors are all yours for the taking at Cosy Camping Suffolk, with little to distract you from the important business of enjoying life in the slow lane. There are no organised activities or fancy facilities here, but there’s heaps of space for kids to run around and play games. When evening comes, hire one of the site’s firepits to gather round to toast marshmallows while having a good old-fashioned natter.

As it’s a petite site you’ll not have to walk too far from your pitch to find the toilet block, which has showers and a handy wet room for use by families or less mobile guests. If you're going to light up a barbie, the owners recommend picking up supplies from one of the farm shops in Trimley, five minutes’ drive away, or heading to the excellent Suffolk Food Hall in Ipswich.

You may prefer to avoid the washing-up altogether of course, in which case you can take a 20-minute stroll to the nearest pub for freshly prepared meals and local cask ales.

Excellent, quiet, clean, well ran site. Family friendly. Recommended. 16/07/2018

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Brand new, immaculate, showers and toilets, a short walk from the pitches (30 seconds max). Liked the 'cars in the car park' policy (after unloading) which made it really safe for children to play (some toys and space hoppers were even provided!) Really quiet, clean, well ran site. Only 5 miles to the beach at Felixstowe. Great wildlife, with many birds and rabbits on site. Loved it! Will be back, maybe for a luxury pod next time!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at all. Being nearer a pub would be nice, but the nearest one is only a mile and the quiet seclusion was fantastic.

From the manager...

It was nice meeting you and your family and thank you for your kind review.
Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again at Cosy.

  • Liked: 

    Toilet block and showers were excellent, very friendly and helpful staff and great that the kids could borrow space hoppers

    Disliked: 

    Not being able to use our fire pit even to barbecue was a bit disappointing - we would have liked to have a bbq and a fire and would have happily bought logs from the shop. As it was we had to eat out.

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind review.
As we are situated on a working farm we have strict Fire Regulations and only allow campfires/fire in our firepit, sorry you were disappointed at not being able to use your own.

    Toilets and shower block were spotless and modern. Appeared to be brand new. Upon arrival at reception you get handy information pack, including discount offers at local establishments. They also had games and equipment that the kids could borrow. Plenty of space for kids to run around and play. When we stayed we were the only tent so enjoyed having the space. Access is via a barrier so site felt very secure. Watching sun set behind neighbouring field.

    Disliked: 

    Price of fire pit and logs but minor point as it was really nice and you even get given an oven glove.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again at Cosy.

Local attractions

This part of Suffolk is famed for its beaches, and your nearest will be in Felixstowe, which you can reach with a 15-minute drive or a half-hour cycle. Walk through the Seafront Gardens to reach the beach, and then head north along the coast to see the Martello Towers that were built here to keep Napoleon’s army out in the early 19th century.

20 minutes’ drive from the farm is the archaeological site Sutton Hoo; more recent history can be seen at the Ipswich Transport Museum – exhibits include fire engines, buses, trams and horse-drawn vehicles from the 19th and 20th centuries.

For some farmyard fun, spend the day at Jimmy’s Farm, 15 minutes away, where you can meet animals including sheep, ponies, pigs and meerkats – don’t forget to pick up a bag of food to feed them. If the horses are your faves, you can see some handsome native types at the Suffolk Punch Centre, half an hour away.

If you’ve been inspired to get out on horseback, there’s a riding centre 20 minutes away that has activities for kids and adults. Golfers, meanwhile, have a choice of two courses within a 20-minute drive.

Must see

  • Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon Burial Mounds (5.5 miles)
  • Christchurch Mansion (5.8 miles)
  • Orford Castle (11.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Sutton Hoo (5.5 miles)
  • Orford Ness National Nature Reserve (11.8 miles)
