Suffolk camping holidays: cracking stays for coast and countryside

Ooh, it’s splendid is camping in Suffolk: for starters, this is a county that really lends itself to outdoor life, with great swathes of gorgeous countryside (yup, the same gorgeous countryside that inspired one John Constable to create his paintings… the landscape hasn’t changed much since the 18th century) and a fab 50 miles of coastline.

On top of that, a Suffolk camping stay puts you within easy reach of heaps of attractions, whether you’re into pottering around stately homes, historic towns and cute villages, getting out for walks and bike rides (on mercifully flat paths), looking out for wildlife, spending days on the beach or feasting on fine local produce.

And what of things you certainly can’t find elsewhere? Suffolk’s got the UK’s most easterly point, so it’s the first place to see the sunrise every day – and you could end the day in the country’s smallest pub. You could even follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter (well, the cast that shot the films in Lavenham, anyway…)

Reckon Suffolk sounds like your sort of place? Read on for our guide to getting the most out of a Suffolk camping holiday…

Campsites in Suffolk: simple sites and swanky stays

As it’s one of England’s few counties that has neither a city or a motorway within its boundaries, Suffolk’s got plenty of peaceful spots to its name, and plenty of campsites and holiday parks around here take full advantage of that, offering laidback places to breathe in the fresh air, enjoy the peace and quiet and take in some fine views.

Picking a place to stay is a question of personal taste – there’s quite the choice! Suffolk farm campsites are popular picks for families who want to live the rural life with pony rides and having the kids feed farm animals (yep, and grownups too… does anyone really grow out of wanting to coo over the cute fluffy creatures?)

More in the market for a couples’ country escape? Cast your rod out at a park that’s got its own fishing lake, pick a place that’s got a pub within staggering distance, plonk down near a walking trail or go the whole hog on the peaceful stay front by choosing an adults-only site.

Whoever’s in your travelling party, camping doesn’t have to mean bringing a tent along: Suffolk camping pods make a sensible choice if you’re keen to keep a roof over your head while keeping your budget down – they come in family-sized versions as well as solo traveller/couple options. At the fancier end of things, yurts, wigwams, tipis, bell tents and lodges all make fine picks for those who’d like to mix up a bit of the outdoor lifestyle with a dollop of luxury (think cosy beds, woodburning stoves, firepits… ooh, maybe even a hot tub…)

What facilities can you expect to find at Suffolk campsites?

As many or as few as you’d like, intrepid traveller… If you’re off on hols with the nippers, it’s worth looking out for a campsite with play area or games room – maybe even an indoor pool – if you want to be sure of having something to keep them entertained during time on site. Some campsites in Suffolk will offer kids’ activities in high season, and some will be set up for easy eats at a restaurant or café.

If you’ve got more grownup plans in mind, you may like to pick a place with a bar on site, or somewhere that can hire you a bike to get out onto those rural roads (to save you having to lug yours along…). Or you could truly embrace the simple life by signing up for a Suffolk wild camping site – what these sites lack in facilities they generally make up with gloriously peaceful surrounds for folk who need to slow their minds down somewhat.

The top attractions to seek out on a Suffolk camping break

Frankly, we could wax lyrical all day about the sights and attractions around the county (if we had an unlimited word count and very fast typing fingers…) But for ease of reading we’ll limit ourselves to a few highlights that we think would look good on anyone’s must-see list for a Suffolk camping stay.

The seaside’s a good place to start, of course. If you like little chi-chi towns, aim for Aldeburgh to hear the sound of the sea reflected in Maggi Hambling’s spectacular scallop sculpture, or scoot down to Southwold for quirky pier amusements, colourful houses and a pint of the local Adnams ale. For sandcastle building, paddling, deckchairs and seaside fish ’n’ chips, pick a spot on Felixstowe’s four miles of sandy beach.

Elsewhere, a real stand-out attraction is Sutton Hoo – a huge estate with an ancient royal burial ground and a smart visitor centre packed that aims to bring new life to days of yore. Soak up a bit more Suffolk history by planning visits to Framlingham Castle, Bury St Edmunds and the medieval streets of Lavenham.

With so much fab coast and country to explore, there are plenty of ways to keep costs down during a stay at a Suffolk campsite too: see if you can spot any UFOs on a ramble through Rendlesham Forest, invest in a pack of bacon (a crab’s fave snack – who knew?) to go crabbing around Walberswick or seek out pretty spots for walks, bike rides and picnics – Snape Maltings, Westleton Heath, Woodbridge and Orfordness are all good picks for such things, as are the wildlife trails of RSPB Minsmere.
