  • Quiet family-friendly site on a working smallholding
  • Hire firepits, collect eggs and buy fresh produce from the farm
  • Four miles from the Suffolk coast and near several nature reserves

Fancy a stay on a smashing Suffolk smallholding, in a traditional Suffolk village with a rather smashing pub – and all just four miles from a sandy beach on the fab Suffolk coast? Blaze up a campfire and help to feed the animals at The Shottisham Campsite, based in the village of the same name a few miles from Woodbridge. The sand and shingle beach, beach huts and pier of popular seaside resort Felixstowe are about seven miles away.

The Shottisham Campsite is part of a working smallholding home to rare breed sheep, pigs, alpacas and poultry, all of which guests are welcome to meet, greet and help feed as well as help to collect eggs from the site hens. Homemade preserves and free-range eggs and meat are available to buy from the site team, along with firewood: campfires are allowed on site in firepits, which are available for hire for guests.

Pitches are spread across several small fields bordered by native trees and bushes. Amenities include two small shower blocks with plenty of hot water powered by solar energy; washing-up areas; a chemical disposal point; waste and recycling bins and a fridge freezer for guests' use.

Dogs on secure leads are welcome and there's direct access from the site to walking trails through acres of heathland, forest and fields. Bike hire is available if you'd rather explore the area on wheels.

Local attractions

The Shottisham Campsite is two miles from the River Deben, which can be explored via canoe or pleasure boat trip for lazy afternoons. If you'd rather make a break for the beach, the nearest sands are about four miles away and the resort of Felixstowe is within about seven. The handsome coastal town of Aldeburgh, home to a couple of top-rated fish and chip shops as well as fishermen's huts selling the latest catch, is also within easy reach.

About four miles away is the market town of Woodbridge, lying along the River Deben and near both the 3,700 acres and miles of bike trails of Rendlesham Forest and the fab ancient burial site of Sutton Hoo, famed as the most significant Anglo-Saxon site in the land.

Orford and Framlingham castles are also good old options in the area, or you could go wildlife watching instead, at one of the several nature reserves around including Orford Ness National Nature Reserve and RSPB Minsmere.

The Alde Estuary around Snape Maltings is another well-known spot for wildlife watching; after a nature spotting trip, trek into town to take in a show at the Snape Maltings Concert Hall (an oyster bar is in the hall too).

Plenty of other options are within five miles of Shottisham, including fishing, sailing, a public swimming pool, a cinema, golf, horse riding and several pubs and restaurants.
