Glamping Suffolk

Swattesfield Campsite and Glamping in Suffolk is a wonderful camping experience set in the heart of the East Anglian Countryside in the Waveney Valley with access to delightful woodland walks and wildlife. We have plenty of glamping options for those looking for something uniquely special. Two cosy pixie huts, three boutique bell tents and a converted hay cart.

North Suffolk is an ideal spot to stay and explore the Waveney valley and the local market town of Diss with it’s popular auction house T.W.Gazes; auctions Friday and specialist auctions on Saturdays, and viewings on Thursdays. The poet John Betjeman said of Diss, ‘Yes, it will be bliss. To go with you by train to Diss’. And he was right with direct mainline trains direct from London Liverpool Street to Diss station, which is 6 miles from Swattesfield Campsite.

With 12 miles of direct walks from the site and an 11th Century pub, Forge Cafe and Coach House restaurant within 25 minutes walking distance there’s more than enough to keep you fed and watered. There’s even a play area 15 minutes easy stroll away for the kids as well fishing lakes a little further afield. The market town of Eye is only 5 minutes away and all this with an easy train ride from London Liverpool Street and only an hour from Cambridge, 30 minutes from Norwich and 55 minutes from Southwold and Aldeburgh, Swattesfield Campsite is an ideal place to have a relaxing break.

Named as one of the 10 Best UK Campsites by The Guardian!

This Hay Cart is in the process of being converted to accommodate up to four people.
