Glamping in Suffolk is increasingly popular: the privacy and adventure of wild camping, mixed with luxury and home comforts you can’t live without, can make for an exceptional camping experience.
Here, we’ve outlined a few of the very best glamping sites in Suffolk, to help you decide on the perfect destination.
Whether it’s an adventure that you’re looking for or a simple romantic retreat, you’ll find it in Suffolk.
West Stow Pods
Does a spacious subterranean dwelling with large, round doors and a hill-like presence sound familiar to you? If so, you might be thinking of the iconic hobbit holes from a certain Tolkien fantasy!
West Stow Pods offer just that: uniquely beautiful dwellings, perfect for couples and groups alike. Capture the fantastical magic of the Shire, and take on an adventure of your own with West Stow Pods.
You’ll be able to choose from Pod Hollow, a hobbitesque home with modern furnishings and amenities, a Megapod, or glamping lodges. Take a look at their full range online.
Cosy Camping Suffolk
Whilst there are plenty of pitches for traditional camping, most people are drawn to Cosy Camping Suffolk for their innovative and inviting luxury camping pods. These ‘log’ cabins are cosy, warm and provide everything you’ll need to enjoy a glamorous, yet natural glamping adventure.
With ‘family’ pods available for up to 6 people, there will be ample room for you to live out the adventure of a lifetime.
Each pod also has its very own patio, complete with BBQ, exclusively for you to use. If you do feel like making friends, you’re still within walking distance to your nearest neighbours.
A secret garden in the heart of Suffolk, Alde Garden is a quirky, eclectic collection of unique, original and bespoke glamping options. From gypsy caravans to Mongolian yurts, bell tents and even a treehouse, there is a great selection of charming places to stay.
Alde Garden is advertised as an ‘antidote to busy lives’, and we can’t help but agree. There are plenty of activities in the quirky retreat to distract you from your everyday responsibilities, really providing a way to wind down and relax.
Visit the great local diners and pubs, go for nature walks through thoughtfully designed gardens or enjoy the views from the creative tree-mounted jungle shower.
Boundary Farm Cottages
If you’re looking for peacefully tranquil, relaxing and laid back glamping in Suffolk, look no further than the rural Boundary Farm Cottages. Set across 6 acres of vibrant meadows, colourful fields and enchanting forests, it has everything you need for a quiet camping holiday.

Happy Days Retro Vacations
Picture this: you’ve had a long day exploring under the mid-summer sun, looking for somewhere to relax for the evening. At Happy Days Retro Vacations, this slice of ‘vintage Americana’ can become a reality!
Happy Days is a glamping site in Suffolk – with a difference. You won’t find cabins, tents or yurts here, but distinct, authentic and shiny American Airstream caravans that have all been modified and updated to bring you an unforgettable glamping experience. As one of the top 20 sites in the UK, it isn’t hard to see why it is so popular.
Hidden Meadows is a 25-acre plot of land, consisting mostly of wildflower fields, rural countryside views and thick forests. It’s historically very significant, with some areas dating back to Saxon times.
Hidden meadows set the scene for a beautiful, relaxing week (or weekend) away. With large safari tents, all kitted out with modern amenities including heating, stoves and luxury furnishings, you’ll be at the peak of comfort.
Fully stocked lakes, peaceful walks alongside streams, and endless nature hikes make Hidden Meadows a great place for time to yourself.
Run Cottage Touring Park
Run Cottage, though it is known as a caravan and touring park, is a great place for any glamper who would like to stay rural enough to enjoy the peace, yet still remain close to a local town. Run Cottage is situated right on the doorstep of Woodbridge, a charismatic market town.
Each pod is spacious, with heating, set inside a curved ‘tunnel’. Run Cottage has a variety of luxury glamping pods alongside their premium caravan and motorhome pitches, containing everything that you need for that break that you deserve.
At the pinnacle of luxury is Suffolk’s own Wantisden Park; a private holiday destination placed against the infamous heritage coast. It consists of uniquely shaped, custom-build pods in an assortment of shapes and size, all of which invoke exactly the level of cosiness you’d hope for in a glamping staycation.
From bespoke wooden tents to towable carriages, each lodge at Wantisden Park is extraordinarily distinct; beautiful finishes complement the hand-made pods to give it a very prominent look.
At Wantisden, you’ll be able to explore the Heritage coast, enjoy fine dining at Wantisden Hall or simply have a quiet, relaxing stay in your luxury pod.
