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

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Would definitely recommend, one of my favourite sites09/20/2019

  • Liked: 

    Facilities were clean and very spacious, they were one of the main reasons I chose this site. There was a little traffic noise but it didn't bother us at all, at night we barely noticed it by the fire. The the owls were the loudest!
    The owners were very accommodating, they let us pay for wood the following day. They're very friendly, they came round to everyone in the evening to check we were all okay and if we needed anything else.
    The site is very spacious, I like that the pitches are mapped out and theres a board telling you which is yours. We were the only tent so were a little away from the Van's which suited us.
    This was one of my favourite campsites, I would definitely return and reccomend.

    Beautiful spot, a stones throw from Sutton Hoo proper and the Sandlings Walk. The shower and toilet facilities were warm and clean, we had access to a shared fridge and WiFi, and fire pits are available for a small fee. Host was lovely, couldn’t do enough for you. If we ever do the full walk we’ll be back!

  • Liked: 

    Great location with a really unusual shingle beach only 15 mins drive away,some really lovely pubs nearby and the Sutton Hoo National Trust site right on the doorstep
    The campsite is small but great for us, we went as a family of 3; 2 adults a 4 year old. The pitches are all around the edge of the field clearly numbered and there is a small play area for kids right in the middle so whichever pitch you get you can see your kids playing at all times.
    Toilet/shower facilities were good and clean. Fridge there also if you need it.
    We also hired a log burner and logs for £10 which i thought was a great little touch.

    Disliked: 

    The noise from the road next to the campsite could be a problem for light sleepers
    There was a party at the house the site the night we stayed, which was quite noisy, it would have been good to have some notice of this but it definitely didn't affect our stay, we had a great time!

  • Liked: 

    Plenty of space, family bathroom with bath for young children, play area in middle of tents so easy to keep an eye on children. The owner introduced herself and offered the children ride on toys to play with which they enjoyed. Facilities were very clean. Electric hook up and tap on each pitch. Would recommend to families with young children.

    Disliked: 

    Some road noise but to be expected due to the location. Would not put us off returning. Noise from other campers until late at night (12:30ish).

    Well maintained, flat pitches, plenty of space and only a short walk into the National Trust Sutton Hoo site.
    Lots of space for children to play with slide and swings in the centre.
    Two generous fridge freezers available for anyone to use, particularly useful for those camping without a fridge. Electric hookups and water at every pitch.

Another scenic seaside village is Southwold further on at 45 minutes from the park with its Victorian pier and classic white lighthouse. And if you're into twitching? The coastal birding spots of Minsmere and Dunwich are both 40 minutes’ drive.
