A truly unique and bespoke cabin quietly nestled on its own private island on a lake in the heart of the Suffolk countryside.
With your own island, lake and meadow, a stay at "Little Island Retreat" is true exclusive glamping. Our wooden cabin features a king-size bed, sink, decking area, seating, BBQ and eco toilet.
Little Island Retreat is your very own island retreat, right in the heart of the Suffolk Countryside; offering exclusive glamping at its best.
The island is situated on a two-acre lake in the edge of a wild-flower meadow on our family farm.
Rookery Meadow features 400-year-old oak trees with a lake boasting a jetty and lakeside walk. Parking is in the farm yard, with a short winding meadow path leading to the lakeside.
Here you will enter your very own tranquil spot, free from electricity and running water. You will walk around the lake to the bridge, crossing to Little Island Retreat.
The island looks out over the lake through its large windows and double glass doors. To the rear you will find a decking area with rustic seating and a BBQ with ring hob and kettle.
The views over the lake are stunning. Inside, a king size bed ensures a good night’s sleep, whilst the reclaimed-wood dresser and sink provides an area for simple washing.
A bean bag and footrest offer an extra comfy spot to sit and read or relax. Solar power provides lighting, with LED lanterns and candles to create a romantic atmosphere.
Crockery, cutlery and basic cookware is provided along with a kettle that can be heated on the BBQ. A cool box helps keep basic provisions chilled. An eco-toilet is situated right next to the cabin through a lockable stable door.
A short walk away, next to your car, a shower and utility room is available for your exclusive use. The shower room has an electric shower, sink with hot running water and a flushable toilet.
The utility room has a stainless-steel sink with hot running water, perfect for washing up your BBQ cookware.
There is also a fridge to store food and drink, coat hooks, plug sockets and USB charging points so you can stay plugged in to the outside world (if you want to!).
Breakfast or welcome hampers featuring locally sourced produce are available for an additional cost.
We offer true escapism with the chance to relax in nature, whilst being near enough to some creature comforts to keep you entertained. From the comfort of your cabin you can enjoy simple peace and quiet, tranquil views, lakeside walks and some of the best sunsets the county has to offer. There are no shops or pubs in the village, however, there are five pubs and a farm shop with cafe within a three-mile cycle or drive (walkable if you are happy to navigate foot paths and country roads).
The cabin features a king size bed, sink, seating, decking area and eco toilet. Solar power provides lighting, and a BBQ ensures you can make a cuppa or cook up some dinner by the lakeside. A short walk away is your shower & utility room with electric shower, flushing toilet, bathroom sink, fridge, utility sink, USB points and plug sockets for charging phones and using hair dryers. All linen, towels and toiletries are provided as are crockery, cutlery, tea, coffee, kettle and BBQ utensils.
Little Island retreat is off-grid, powered by solar and cooking facilities are in the form of a gas BBQ. On the island there is an eco-compost loo. Inside we provide recycling bins to minimise waste. Many of the cabin’s features are created from reclaimed wood from the farm, or are upcycled from vintage farm tools. The lake is set in Rookery Meadow, a wildflower meadow that encourages natural flora and fauna. The shower and utility area includes eco toiletries and washing up liquid.
The cabin is a short walk from the shower room, so we recommend bringing wellies and waterproof clothing in case of rain. Head torches and LED lanterns are provided. There are lots of cycling routes nearby and we can provide a secure area for bike storage. We can provide a welcome hamper and/or breakfast hamper at an additional cost, we recommend bringing your own food, drinks and snacks which can be stored in the fridge in the utility room or in the cool box in the glamping cabin.
