Glamping Suffolk

Have a wonderful experience with the family,
 glamping in North Suffolk in the Waveney valley! Dawn Chorus Holidays is run by the Bradshaw family, Hannah, Helen, Ollie & Bob and they welcome you to The Pines, a beautiful rural location in north Suffolk.  We have 2 luxury tented lodges that can sleep a family of 6 – 8 in style with hot running water, electric sockets and wood burning cooker complimented with an electric stove, private toilet and shower.  Or you could hire one of three shepherds huts for that romantic retreat, a family get away or somewhere to put your head down, after cycling or walking all day. They are fully insulated and heated so what ever the weather they are warm and cosy. They all have there own showers and toilet, so no running across a field at night.
You will delight in the space, fresh air and seeing how a working farm works. This is a time to get away from all things modern and resort back to nature.


Our tented lodges are based around African safari tents, perfect for families to get close to nature. With all the comfort of a permanent structure, but the lodges preserve the romance and atmosphere of a tent. The lodges are very comfortable and include everything required to make your stay extra special.

We have two lodges (Chaffinch & Goldfinch) each sleeping up to 8 people. Each lodge has a double bed in the master room, a bunkroom and a custom made ‘cabin’ double bed which has doors opening into the living room and the bunkroom.

Our huts are hand built by Riverside Shepherds Huts, using the traditional methods, original these huts were built for agriculture workers working away from the farm i.e. during lambing time or a gamekeeper on a large estate.  Our huts have the traditional look, but all the modern comforts without the distraction of TV wifi etc.  We have introduced three shepherds’ huts to our site.
