No newborns allowed at Newbourne Woodland Campsite… and no babies, toddlers or children of any size either: this sought-after and much-loved site in the Suffolk countryside is exclusively adults-only. And set up for those of age to forget grown-up concerns too, as it’s in a birdsong-cheeping wood for frolicking childlike among trees, among countryside for frolicking among paths, fields and hedgerows – and less than six miles from the coast for frolicking on the beach at Felixstowe and buying freshly caught fish to sizzle up later under the stars. And it’s less than five miles from fab Saxon burial site Sutton Hoo – and dogs are welcome too. Hurrah!

Bring a torch, ditch the smartphone, find your own woody pitch and get back to nature at one of tent pitches among the woods (Newbourne Woodland owners Jen and Larry planted almost three acres of trees 20 years ago to create the semi-wild woodland now open to guests who’d like to channel their inner child/adventurous spirits by camping among the trees).

Campfires are allowed on site (but of course), using the free-to-hire barbecues and fire baskets. The campsite is on the edge of Newbourne village near Woodbridge to procure provisions at the farm shop and at Jen and Larry’s family nursery; procure pints and pub meals at the mature seventeenth century pub The Fox an easy amble away.

Electric absolutely essential? Bed down in the woodland cabin, a converted showman’s trailer that’s all powered up with electric shower, CD player and radio along with flushing loo, double bedroom and fully-equipped kitchen.

Hairdryer, lashings of hot water and ‘back to basics but with all mod cons’ also absolutely essential? Facilities at Newbourne Woodland Campsite are up to date, well-maintained and all free, including comfy and separate ladies’ and gents’ washrooms with hot water around the clock and an electric socket in the ladies’ shower to plug in hairdryers or other holiday necessities.

Guests can also duck into the Elephant Shed to use the electric points there or warm up at the woodburning stove while reading one of the many site books and tracing the next day’s routes on the local footpath maps available for guests to borrow. Why’s it called the Elephant Shed, ask Jen and Larry? Go and stay with them to find out.
