Suffolk is a quintessentially English county that lies on the East coast of England. Bathed in natural beauty, Suffolk is the perfect destination for a short staycation for families and couples alike.
With 50 miles of coastline, you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches to explore. You will also find idyllic countryside scenes throughout the county, which have been used as inspiration for local artists and writers for hundreds of years. Constable Country, set within an AONB, is the birthplace of painter John Constable, and is where he painted his most notable works.
A glamping holiday in Suffolk is perfect for history, adventure and stunning coastlines.
Navigate your way through quaint villages and medieval towns steeped in history. Be sure to visit Bury St Edmunds with its historical architecture. Step inside the magnificent Abbey and Cathedral before enjoying a local beer in Britain’s smallest pub - The Nutshell.
You will find Wigwam® Holidays Maglia Rosso just four miles south of Bury St Edmunds. The six cosy glamping pods are set within a five acre meadow ensuring plenty of space for families to enjoy the peaceful rural surroundings. The site is home to a cycling centre and licensed country cafe.
Also an ideal destination for walkers and cyclists is The Brecks (Thetford Forest and Kings Forest), an area characterised by its dense Scots pines, purple heathand, and vast blue skies. The Brecks is one of the driest parts of Britain and is home to hidden stories which go back to the Stone Age.
