General

  • On a small working farm in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • A 10-minute walk to the famed Sutton Hoo National Trust site
  • About a 10-minute drive to Woodbridge and Rendlesham Forest

A melodic name isn’t all Sutton Hoo has going for it… this site on a small working farm among free-range chickens is also less than a 10-minute walk from Sutton Hoo. You'll have heard of that of course: the splendid Anglo-Saxon ship burial where a warrior king lay for 1,400 years, and hailed since its discovery in the 1930s as one of the finest archaeological finds anywhere in Britain.

Trips down memory lane are all around the local area too, as the park's in the age-old Suffolk Coast and Heath Area of Natural Beauty, and a 10-minute drive from the Woodbridge Tide Mill on the River Deben, one of the last in the world still churning up flour using time-honoured techniques.

Visit to learn about the process through interactive activities then ply the streets and traditional stores of the pretty riverside market town of Woodbridge – it’s got a butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer (as well as more modern amenities like a supermarket, coffee shops and clothes boutiques). Get your supplies from these local producers then tote it back to the park and cook it up on the campfire while the kids and dogs run around on the big grass field opposite.

And if you're after more historical expeditions once fully fed? Orford (20 minutes’ drive) and Framlingham (25 minutes) both have castles to check out, while the coastal and woodland walks near the site are sure to have you harking back to simpler times.

One tree-lined place for a wander close by is Rendlesham Forest a 10-minute drive away, which is well worth a visit for its play areas, picnic spots and bike park, as well as its orienteering trails and horse riding paths.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Ideal site for exploring Sutton Hoo, great facilities, friendly owner11/16/2020

    This is a fantastic campsite within a short walking distance of National Trust Sutton Hoo and we would highly recommend.

    We were greeted on arrival by Helen, the owner, who was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The pitches are a good size, level and ours had electric, water and a drain for grey waste all on the pitch. The toilet/shower blocks are warm, well maintained and meticulously clean. There is free stable wi-fi on site. In the centre, there is a wooden children's play area visible from all pitches, which allows you to watch the young ones whilst allowing them some freedom. We particularly liked the opportunity to reserve a fire pit and buy a barrow of wood, especially as this was an autumn excursion! We are now cheese fondue converts!

    The site is on a working farm, but we didn't experience any problems with this. We could see the free range chicken sheds across the field, but we did not hear any noise, or experience any smells or insects from them.

    The site is in the beautiful Suffolk countryside with views across to Sutton Hoo woodland. There is a local road nearby and some traffic can be heard passing during the day, but we did not find it an issue. It is a great place to use as a base for the surrounding area. Rendlesham Forest is within a short driving distance with walks and cycle routes. We didn't explore more than this, the coast at Aldeburgh and Sutton Hoo itself on this occasion, due to the pandemic.

    This was our first booking with pitchup.com, to this campsite and camping in our VW T5 (we usually camp in a tent). Booking was easy and we would have no hesitation in using the website or campsite again. The T5 set up worked well!

    We look forward to bringing our six year old son with us next time and our friends as well. Can't wait!

    The site is peaceful but with an excellent area for kids to play. The toilet facilities are great and very covid friendly. I loved that our pitch was assigned to us and was on a chalk board on entry. I never had to contact the owner but It was made very clear how to and to do so if any questions or issues arise. We did meet the owner on arrival also which was lovely. The location is great and near so much. Ive booked to stay again and only just returned.
