- On a working farm a 15-minute drive from Sutton Hoo and Woodbridge
- Private river beach access; veg and fish boxes available to preorder
Hoping to hide out in a remote and peaceful place on your next break? Go to ground at Wild Riverside Camping, a working farm in Suffolk with exceptional views out over an estuary.
Come here to bask on the beach, cycle through the countryside and watch the birds fly through the sky; the park is a mile from the nearest public road and has private access to the River Deben sandy banks, so it’s a top spot for getting off the grid.
Set in the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it’s also stunning. Wherever you wander – whether down to the estuary for far-reaching views over the large expanse of water or to All Saints Church Ramsholt (10 minutes’ stroll from the farm), it’s worth making sure you’re carrying your camera.
Bring a picnic too: veg boxes and fish can be preordered from the farm (use the contact information provided in your booking details to get in touch in advance) and staples are stocked at the village shop in Alderton (10 minutes’ drive). If you’d rather stroll for a seafood supper at a riverside pub with views out over the water, there’s one a couple of miles from the park.
And as for local landmarks? A tiny bit further out is Sutton Hoo (15 minutes’ drive), famed for being the site of two early-medieval burial grounds (so famed, in fact, that Netflix featured it in the film The Dig – and if some scenes from that look a little familiar that's because parts of it were shot on this very farm…)

Stop by Sutton Hoo while at this park: the National Trust-protected site is incredibly interesting – it’s the home of two early medieval burial grounds dating back between the 6th to 7th centuries. Archaeologists have been excavating the area since the 1930s, and some of the better finds, like a funerary ship and an opulent Anglo-Saxon helmet are on display in London’s esteemed British Museum.
The nearby riverside town of Woodbridge, which has restaurants, shops and a museum to poke around, is also worth a wander. Sip coffee on the Quayside, then roam by the water’s edge towards the old Tide Mill.
Stroll around the seaside town of Aldeburgh too (40 minutes' drive), a pretty place with a shingle beach and a variety of boutiques selling antiques and arts. Drop by Snape Maltings (half an hour from the site) while you’re in the area as well for a glimpse of the galleries and a renowned concert hall.
