Welcome to Newbourne Woodland Campsite

Unwind at our beautiful little Suffolk countryside campsite – exclusively for grownups. The perfect place for a digital detox


There are just 20 tent pitches in this peaceful and relaxing campsite on the edge of a Suffolk village. Spend the evening round your campfire, light the barbecue and enjoy the tranquil surroundings – woodland and meadow pitches with 5* toilet and shower facilities. Awake to the sound of birdsong and enjoy walking or cycling in the surrounding countryside

Spend time in the Newbourne Springs nature reserve, visit Newbourne Fox for a pint or for dinner, sunbathe on Felixstowe Beach or shop in the local market town of Woodbridge. The river Deben is nearby at Waldringfield as well as many beautiful villages and local attractions. Perfect for a day out at Minsmere, just thirty minutes away by car. Bring your bike and cycle the local lanes. Hire a canoe or a kayak at Iken. Or if you just want to relax, enjoy the countryside and walk the paths, fields and hedgerows of Newbourne, Bucklesham and Waldringfield.

Late bookings always welcome!

Camping in the woods is an experience that only a lucky few have experienced. Find yourself a corner in the shaded woods or in one of the clearings. Choose your own space for your tent when you arrive, either between the trees in the woodland or on one of the open fields, there’s a happy place for everyone.

Our campsite is for adults only and is dog-friendly. We welcome quiet, well behaved dogs on up to four of our pitches. Dogs must be kept on short leads or tie outs at all times when they are not in the tent with you – you will be sharing your camp with the wildlife who live there; we want you to enjoy the environment, and we want the wildlife to be able to enjoy it too! There are many excellent paths for dog walking in the area, and we provide a ‘doggy bin’ so you can keep the area clean and hygienic.

Park for free in the paddock near the woodland campsite, and borrow one of our wheelbarrows to transport your belongings to your chosen site in the wood or on the field. There are also barbeques and fire pits for you to borrow; logs and charcoal are on sale on site. There are picnic tables and the Elephant Shed where you can spend time if the weather is a bit watery! Sit by the woodburner and check out the local footpath maps, or read one of the many books which are available for you to borrow or swap. You will leave Newbourne Woodland Campsite refreshed and relaxed, planning your next visit!

We also have two luxury Cabins just for two – Kingfisher Cabin overlooking the water and Cherry Tree Cabin, the Cabin in the Woods overlooking the water meadow. Spoil yourself and enjoy a very special glamping experience. Click on the Cabin names for further details.
