Welcome to our cosy glamorous bell tent set in a truly magical location where the woods meet the reeds. Enjoy the wonderful combination of riverside wilderness, farm animals and comfortable outdoors accommodation which is only ten minutes walk to Woodbridge with all the buzz of a lively Suffolk market town.
It's one of our two bell tents - a perfect opportunity to visit with friends or family. See also bell tent Reedbed.
It's a unique setting at the edge of a lively town where you can enjoy the beauty of nature only minutes away from cafes and pubs.
The bell tent is in an old willow wood and orchard, part of Spring Farm Barn, a seven acre site which is next to the beautiful river Deben and close to ancient Sutton Hoo.
Inside the tent there is a king size bed with a comfortable mattress and bedding, two single futon mattresses tucked away, a couple of armchairs for lounging in and a blanket box full of, well, blankets for extra comfort.
We provide bed linen and towels.
In the reeds there is an outdoors heated shower and a compost toilet accessed via meandering boardwalks lit by solar lights.
Next to the tent you'll find a cooking and sitting area covered by a shade sail. We provide a gas camp cooker, ice box with ice packs, pots and pans, utensils, cutlery and plenty of lovely crockery (collecting beautiful china being one of my vices!).
There is a fireplace for bonfires and barbecues, there are hammocks and swings, trees to climb on, a stream to paddle in and an occasional train going by to wave at. We're close to the East Suffolk railway line and so we hope that, like us, you'll see the twice-hourly train as more of an entertainment rather than nuisance.
In addition to the pleasure of observing rabbits hopping around the orchard, muntjac deer running through the woods and pheasants peeking from the reeds you can enjoy watching daily shenanigans of our two goats, three alpacas, hens and ducks - watch this space, our menagerie tends to grow monthly!
As parents of school aged children we know how difficult it is to find an affordable fun place to stay during school holidays. Therefore we are making a special offer for the first two weeks of 2017 summer holidays - 21st of July until 6th of August - for families with children to stay with us for £50 a night.
In July 2017 we'll be adding a second bell tent to our existing one, therefore being able to accommodate two families at a same time.
We've had great fun developing a glamping site in Woodbridge reflecting our ambition to share this beautiful and unique environment with others.
There is a private car park for guests use. There are electrical sockets, hot water shower and a cold water tap with fresh drinking water.
Our house is about 100 meters away and you're welcome to pop by if you have any questions.
Kids (and adults alike!) are very welcome to join us at animal feeding times and can help collect eggs which you can then enjoy for a yummy free range breakfast.
