Fellows Farm: Surrounded by a classic Suffolk landscape

General

  • Quiet site on an organic farm with vineyard and market garden views
  • Five minutes' drive from Coddenham and 15 minutes from Ipswich
  • Sustainable site with solar panels and well-maintained compost toilets

The fellows (Ben and Rory) and fellowesses (Femke the farmer and Starter the dog) at this quiet Suffolk spot do all they can to keep this site's green grounds in fine fettle. Fellows Farm is a small-scale organic holding in the Suffolk countryside that's been turned into a vineyard and traditional market garden by a green-fingered family who are keen to share their gorgeous views and local knowledge with their guests.

Fellows Farm is on the edge of the quiet village of Gosbeck, 15 minutes' drive from central Ipswich and 25 minutes from the coast. Helmingham Hall – a 400-acre estate with a deer park, footpaths and a tea room – is a five-minute drive away and there's a pub in Otley (10 minutes).

Coddenham (five minutes' drive) is a good place to stock up on grub at the community-run food shop, or you can source food on site: guests can preorder fruit and veg boxes from the market garden, or fish boxes filled with local catches. The farm's own micro-bakery grows and mills its own heritage grain, then turns it into organic sourdough loaves to buy (or wood-fired pizza, if you happen to be around on Friday night), and the shop also stocks excellent local milk, cheese, eggs and butter.

Things are fully off-grid back at base – that means solar panels for electricity, compost toilets and water from a well (although standpipes are also available close to the pitches and phon charging is available). The site also has a hot shower; fires are allowed if you want to get even warmer (please bring your own firepit or use the communal firepit area). Barbecues and dogs are both permitted, and cyclists are welcome to use the barn for safe bike storage.

Please note

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

This park has no on-site shower facilities.

The car park and compost toilets are a 100-metre walk from the meadow. There is another toilet unit 50 metres from the meadow.

    If you love the world, then you'll love this place! Fellows farm shows the beautiful simplicity of enjoying life, living from nature and enjoying what it has to offer.

    Sourdough pizzas on Friday were delicious topped with homegrown vege's. Finished off with a bowl of strawberrys (from the field) and cream. Ben is an fantastic Baker and an even better host!

    We loved our stay! It was so lovely, we would rather keep it a secret! In fairness to our hosts, we will share the best bits so others can too. The farm is peaceful and spacious. Limiting the number of tents means that you have lots of space to enjoy the wide open Suffolk sky. The hosts are kind, helpful and shared some secret tips for the area. We will be back and have already recommended Fellows Farm to friends and colleagues.

    Very welcoming. Open field in a working farm. We forgot towels so we borrowed a couple, didn’t have cheese we could buy some of their (personal family) cheddar.
    This was the first weekend they had opened the farm for camping and they did very well! Very relaxed environment and you can buy their produce if you want.

    This site is for very relaxed and simple camping with loads of space for kids to run around and investigate the farm.

    Beautiful sunsets!

    Ben is a great, friendly host and very accommodating. The site had lots of space so felt tranquil and no issues with noise. Only one toilet and shower but only had to wait once.

    The price for a tent pitch is on the steep side at £30 per night.

Local attractions

Fancy some animal-themed action? Hotfoot it down to Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm (15 minutes' drive) if you're tempted by the chance to meet furry farmyard critters. The farm has an important role to play – over 20 British livestock breeds went extinct over the course of the 20th century, with places like this doing their best to keep remaining heritage stock alive.

If Ipswich (15 minutes) piques your interest – as well it might, with its waterfronts, gardens and busy shopping streets – go for a turn around Christchurch Mansion, a spin around Chantry Park or a look at the bikes and buses of yesteryear at Ipswich Transport Museum. After that little lot, wander down to the marina for waterfront bites and watch the yachts bobbing up and down in the distance…

The closest beach is at Felixstowe (half an hour), where there's also a waterfront garden park and Landguard Fort, site of the last opposed seaborne invasion of England way back in 1667. It's also a busy port town, so head to Shingle Street or Aldeburgh (both 40 minutes) if you prefer more chilled spots.

Must see

  • Christchurch Mansion (11.3 kilometres)
  • Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon Burial Mounds (14.8 kilometres)
  • Framlingham Castle (14.9 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Sutton Hoo (14.8 kilometres)
