Goshawk entrance and patio

General

  • Family-run outdoor accommodation deep in the Suffolk countryside
  • Half an hour's drive from Bury St Edmunds and an hour from Southwold
  • Play area, games room and free wifi; fresh eggs available

Local knowledge goes a long way when planning outdoor breaks. Chrisdee’s Suffolk Pods is a case in point – these smart holiday pods are in the small village of Thwaite, which (courtesy of the site's helpful owners) you now know is pronounced 'Twyte'. (Place names in Suffolk are trickier than most – who would've guessed that the nearby village of Hoxne actually rhymes with 'oxen?')

Pronunciation may not be simple, but life is much more straightforward at Chrisdee’s Suffolk Pods, where the swish self-contained accommodation units come with their own kitchenette, bathroom, barbecue and patio.

This site is family-run and family-friendly, too: there's a fab outdoor play area 20 metres away from the pods where the kids can clamber and climb in a safe environment. (They're also welcome to collect free-range eggs from the hens that can be spotted pecking their way around this countrified spot.) A games room with table tennis is also on hand, as is Inca the friendly dog, who can be visited in her gated garden.

This secluded site is set deep in peaceful Suffolk countryside and about half a mile away from one of the owners' favourite pubs. It's also a couple of minutes' drive from the A140 – particularly convenient if you're heading to or from Ipswich (30 minutes) or Norwich (45 minutes).

Gorgeous pod, friendly down to earth owners, good facilities.10/04/2020

    We really felt welcomed and at home at Chrisdees pod, we had everything we needed for a short stay and the pod was well designed and comfortable with lots of clever space saving features.
    The pod was very clean and lots of useful utensils (have stayed in many places with blunt knives, so glad to say that all kitchen equipment was good working order!)
    Clean ensuite, all new and fresh.
    WiFi in pod and TV provided with lots of channels and can log into your netflix too.
    Nice private area around our pod to use, and we took our dog with us, we were happy they were dog friendly and our pod was built with an enclosed garden around it especially for dogs 😁
    We were advised of lots of nice pubs nearby (including a vegetarian one!) And also told about walks and other tourist spots nearby, we recommend Thornham Walks if you are bringing your doggy friend.
    Overall I would recommend these pods to anyone wanting to stay in the area, and would definitely book again, recommend to family and friends.
    Thank you so much ❤ had a brilliant staycation!x

    We had a fabulous stay of four nights at Chrisdee's pods and had a lovely time which was helped enormously by the attentive hosts who greeted us on arrival, made such a difference.

    The pod was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed including good Wifi reception and access to Netflix which was a must for our 17 year old! The kitchen area contained a microwave and fridge with a little freezer the latter of which was great as it was particularly hot. There was coffee, tea and sugar supplied and even a pair of scissors and some sharp knives - I usually bring my own sharp knife but didn't need it. We even had some fresh eggs from the hens for morning breakfast one day which was a real treat.

    The beds were very comfortable with a large sofa which pulled out to a very good size double bed. Plenty of storage and the bathroom was a good size with a little shower which always had hot water! We slept extremely well...

    Great hosts, beautiful little spot with lovely garden which is in the making next to a field. Plenty of places to eat out and a great base from which to explore Suffolk. Even our dog was happy and enjoyed some playtime with the hosts dog! We highly recommend Chrisdee's pods!

    Lovely 3 day stay in Wagtail pod. Friendly welcome on arrival and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of extra supplies in pod, with wipes, wash liquid, first aid pack, toilet rolls, tea towels, couple of fans, and very clean and comfortable. Weather great which made using outdoor bbq cooking facility easy. Bear in mind if wet weather, pod has microwave only inside. Grandchildren loved play area and trampoline, feeding chickens and collecting eggs. Overall very happy with our stay 5*

Local attractions

Looking to spend a few days locally? Head to Stonham Barns (15 minutes' drive) for a vintage car museum, sensory garden, adventure playground and golf course. There are also more hands-on activities here, like a popular paint-a-pot shop and bird handling opportunities at Suffolk Owl Sanctuary.

Ready to venture further afield? Coastal spots like Southwold and Lowestoft are about an hour away and are home to gorgeous views, boats and beaches. Bury St Edmunds (half an hour), meanwhile, is the place to go for a spot of retail therapy; there are also views of the town's ancient abbey to admire in between the shopping.

Here's some more local knowledge for you – if you're looking for a seriously good tipple while you're here, make sure to try local faves like Aspall Cyder or Adnams beers. Drive 30 minutes down the road to Ipswich (and Briarbank Brewing Company, to be precise) if you want to experience the breadth and depth of Suffolk's artisanal booze; stick around in town for scenic strolls through Christchurch Park or along the marina.

Must see
