Pitches: 15 plus Pixie Huts, Bell Tents & Suffolk Hay Cart
Opening Dates this year: 29/04/2022 to 30/09/2022
We have made some massive improvements that makes Swattesfield Campsite a unique site to stay at and a true Top 10 UK campsite as featured in The Guardian and Cool Camping guide.
Tent and Campervan pitches
If our sumptuous accommodation is just too much for you and you fancy the traditional ways then don't worry as we've still got ten tent pitches for those that like it under canvas. I say pitches but they're unmarked to keep Swattesfield Campsite as natural a countryside location as can be. We also cater for VW camper van sized campers - anything bigger and they just wouldn't fit!
Our proudest offering is the communal kitchen area with free gas stoves/microwave and some pots and pans available for anyone to use. The children particularly like it in here making use of the Table Football, Children's Library and Chalk Board wall!
Our facilities block houses 3 toilets and 2 showers within both the men's and women's sides and our campsite shop contains many of the camping essentials that you may have forgotten such as pegs/lighters/marshmallows etc.
We also have free WIFI available throughout the main camping field so you can share all those amazing pictures you are going to be taking!
Be inspired by our ever-so-cutsey Pixie Huts! Our octagonal wonders have four peak-a-boo windows, a comfy full-sized double bed and two smaller beds for any little imps. With a wood burning stove, solar powered sockets and lighting and over-looking the south facing skies of Suffolk it's a truly unique glamping experience! The huts have their own outside decking area, fire pits and all your cooking facilities including a Pizza Oven for all campers to use. These really are the new way to camp; cosy, cutsey and a great place to wind down and relax.
Boutique Bell Tents
As well as our Pixie Huts we also have our Boutique Bell-Tents with all the creature comforts you'd need to have a thoroughly enjoyable stay. At five metres across these are big enough for four and of course have the full-size comfy double bed as well as all your cooking equipment.
Suffolk Hay Cart
And if all that wasn't enough we also have our hand built Suffolk Hay Cart big enough for four, again this comes with firepit and all your cooking facilities outside.
We offer a unique site that directly accesses Thornham Walks within Thornham Estate, which is an ancient parkland, woodland and farm, and provides 12 miles of waymarked footpaths.
Also to be found is the Victorian Walled Garden.
Accessible from the walks is the Forge Tearooms, open daily to offer home cooked specials, cakes and other delicious treats, while youre here the kids could burn some energy on the new play area.
Later you might want to try the Thornham Coach House - a licensed restaurant serving afternoon teas, evening meals and Sunday roasts.
For something more traditional take in the beams and character of the 11th Century pub, The Four Horseshoes which serves meals all day as well as real ales.
Fishing lakes are nearby and cycle hire is also available.
Where are we: Swattesfield Camp is located off the A140 and only eight miles from the market town of Diss and its mainline Station. Trains depart regularly from London Liverpool Street, a 1½ hour train ride.
We can even arrange for you to be collected using a local taxi or by prior arrangement with ourselves!
