Description of Swattesfield
Deep in the wilds of north Suffolk, keen camper Jonathan set up this seven-acre campsite with his dad in 2011.
It’s a simple site exuding a cool camping vibe, with two grassy fields – one for camping, the other for glamping – separated by a small lake with some adjoining woodland to explore.
The position is perfect for bucolic strolls across the well-marked paths and bridleways of nearby Thornham Walks and for exploring the historic Walled Gardens on the estate, which has recently been restored and is open on weekends.
It’s a great place to do nothing and get into nature.
You can pitch your tent in the bottom field or the woodland beyond, or take up residence in a boutique bell tent complete with a full-size double bed and handy cooking facilities.
Plus there’s the Pixie Hut and the Hay Cart – ideal for a family or small group.
They have some ingeniously suspended firepits for cooking, and some of Jonathan’s mates recently built him a fabulous outdoor pizza oven out of recycled materials.
Overall, it’s a site with a lovely chilled-out atmosphere situated in a very special location.
