Newbourne Woodland Campsite

Camping without the crowds

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 seven acre 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

We are taking bookings now for dates from Monday 17th May – according to present regulations bookings before that time are for  self catering properties only. Since our campers use the communal washrooms we do not come under that category.  We anticipate being very busy again this season as many people are reluctant to book an overseas break at the moment, so if you are planning to book with us please contact us as soon as possible as many dates are already full.

We also now have a new cabin that can be booked – check out photos and details on the Glamping page under Hawthorn.


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!

You choose – you can find yourself a corner in the shaded woods or in one of the clearings, or pitch your tent in one of the two meadow areas. Choose your own space for your tent when you arrive – 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, and in our cabins. 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, wherever you are it won’t be far. There are also barbecues and fire pits for you to borrow; logs and charcoal are for 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 three luxury Cabins just for two – Kingfisher Cabin overlooks the water, whilst Cherry Tree Cabin and Hawthorn Cabin are our Cabins in the Woods overlooking the water meadow. Spoil yourself and enjoy a very special glamping experience!
