Hire our Glamping Lodge, affectionately called East Gate Lodge, as Forest Haven is located a short walk from the East Gate of RAF Woodbridge, central to the mystery surrounding the famous UFO sighting of late 1980.
One of Great Britain's most significant Military-UFO incidents, there were reports of sightings of unexplained lights nearby and claimed landings of a UFO. The incident is sometimes called the most famous UFO event to have happened in Britain: "Britain's Roswell."
The Lodge itself is a bespoke Grillikota, from the Finnish for Grill house, developed from the traditional Kotas (similar to a teepee) used by the indigenous Sami people in Northern Lapland.
Comfortably sleeping four with ensuite wet room, the beds surround a central firepit, great for cooking and toasting marshmallows. The adjustable grill ensures an even heat, cooking food to perfection while you and your companions can sit around the log fire enjoying its cosy glow.
Create the perfect ambience with our remote control mood lighting, varying colour and tone at the press of a button, connect to our ipod dock to add that finishing touch with your favourite tunes, or enjoy one of our specially selected relaxation CDs. Then sit back with a glass of your tipple of choice, nicely chilled in the adjoining fully equipped kitchenette which houses a fridge, mini hob, and sink.
Fancy dining and living a bit more al fresco? For a modest additional fee, hire our outside fire pit with grill and dutch oven, perfect for hot pots, stews and casseroles, for that authentic sitting around the camp fire experience. Enjoy the days end watching the sun set over the trees and feel the stillness and peace as the forest changes from day to night. This is often the time of day when deer venture out across the tracks, so be sure to keep an eye open for a sighting of these wonderful majestic and serene animals.
Once the sun…and supper…have gone down, you might fancy a dip in the hot tub outside your lodge. Relax and let your head lie back as you gaze up at the stars and moon lit sky. To add to your experience why not also treat yourself to one of our massage therapies, reflexology treatments or use the sauna and steam room in our onsite therapy centre.
Round the evening off with marshmallows toasted over the remaining embers of the fire., topped off with hot chocolate for that extra bit of perfect indulgence.
Feeling a bit more adventurous? Enjoy a night under the stars with our Bushcraft hammock, for a small extra fee, just you, the forest and nocturnal wildlife, a great way to really be part of nature.

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.
