- Peaceful site on a farm near the village of Hartest
- Bury St Edmunds and Ickworth House within 15 minutes' drive
- Back to basics pitches with running water and space for campfires
Bring on the chilled country days… peace and quiet are served up by the spade at Waldegrave Farm, a secluded site between the villages of Lawshall and Hartest.
Should you require their urban amenities, the towns of Bury St Edmunds, Lavenham and Long Melford are all around 15 minutes away by car. Rural relaxation is really the name of the game here though – all the classic ingredients are on hand for your stay on site, including hedgerows home to wildlife, a little brook flowing through the grounds and plenty of open space for not doing very much at all (although one might stretch to creating a campfire and cracking open a beer or two...?).
There’s little here to distract from the vibe: amenities on the basic pitches are limited to running water, but there are no toilets or showers on site.
Peeps in search of rural pursuits to fill their days can easily access lots of fab walks and bike rides from here, striding forth for half an hour for pints in a country pub, perchance, or wandering off to the local vineyard. Stately homes, gorgeous gardens and river boat trips are all within half an hour’s drive, or you could stay on the road for slightly less than an hour to mix with the clever folk of Cambridge.

There’s much to be said for just wandering out onto local lanes for a rural roam or bike ride, but if you’d prefer a proper woodland trail, consider hitting Long Melford Country Park or the Suffolk Wildlife Trust nature reserve. And if you’re the kind who requires a suitable reward to get you moving, it’ll take you around 45 minutes to walk to Giffords Hall vineyard for a tour and taster.
Ickworth Housr and its surrounding estate, 20 minutes’ drive from the farm, is a fab place to spend a day out – there’s much to see as you wander around the gardens and the huge Italianate rotunda of the main house. Kentwell Hall and the lovely Spencers Garden are all within a 20-minute drive too.
For town-based trotting, Lavenham, Bury St Edmunds and Long Melford are good places to potter around, and Cambridge is around a 45-minute drive away. Arty types should head to Sudbury, 20 minutes away, to visit Gainsborough’s House and board boat trips through the landscapes that inspired Constable.
