Family-friendly glamping in Suffolk with exclusive site hire available

Savage by name but not by nature, this private Suffolk retreat features six large bell tents cosily tucked away within a three-acre meadow, itself hidden away along the outskirts of the small village of East Soham. Behind Savage Glamping’s assertive name — lifted from Lucy and Ross Savage’s enviable surname — lies a friendly and accommodating getaway, and an idyllic site to bring your family and friends, with it allowing exclusive site hire for ample exploration of its Suffolk surroundings.

Savage Glamping provides the kind of ideal location you get from camping but with the luxuries of glamping. Expect hot showers and flushing toilets in its two large, family-sized bathrooms, along with a communal kitchen boasting all you need for a home-cooked (or, in this case, home-away-from-home-cooked) meal. Your barbecue and firepit are also provided, letting you take away your produce from one of the number of local farmers’ markets, or even from the pre-ordered hamper you can book ahead of your arrival, expertly prepared by the site’s award-winning local butcher.

With this being Suffolk, you’d be right to expect some stunning coastlines at your fingertips; Southwold, Aldeburgh, and Thorpeness are all around a 30-minute drive away, providing some scenic days at the beach in the region’s most picturesque areas. If you’re bringing along the little ones, you’ll also be well-served with this kid-friendly site. Its on-site wooden play area, safe countryside setting, and the activities nearby including Framlingham Castle up the road and Landguard Fort a drive away are ideal days out — they won’t be disappointed.

This is family camping done easy, driven by Lucy and Ross’ personal understanding of taking your kids away with you. As the couple note, taking the young ones away can be as exhausting as it can be fulfilling, and by doing away with all the hassle typically accompanying a camping trip — pitching the tent, figuring out the toilet situation, finding somewhere to wash off a day’s worth of activities — you’re free to enjoy yourself in this quiet spot in Suffolk. Who knew camping with kids could be so easy?

Facilities

Each luxury bell tent has a comfortable cosy king-size bed (and plenty of space for three additional single beds), its own log burner, outdoor fire pit and BBQ, alongside picnic table and chairs. Ready-made hampers from our award-winning village butcher are available to order to take any hassle out of mealtimes.

If you’d rather skip cooking altogether, then there are plenty of local pubs and restaurants to dine in or takeaway. And when your bellies are full and bedtime arrives, we’ve gone all out to make sure our bell tents provide the snug warmth, comfort and soft furnishings to make your slumber under the stars extra special.

The Owner Says

Welcome to Savage Glamping, our small and very friendly (we’re only Savage by name!) glamping site, consisting of six large, luxurious bell tents.

Nestled in a three-acre meadow, just outside the pretty village of Earl Soham in Suffolk, we’re perfectly located for adventure, exploration and fun! You’ll be surrounded by the great outdoors and a fantastic array of attractions – from woodland trails and coastal towns to local festivals and pubs.

Once you’re back at base, let the kids get stuck into the games cupboard while you pull up a deck chair and enjoy a well-earned drink. With three young kids of our own, we know how utterly exhausting a family holiday can really be. So we’ve made sure that adventure doesn’t come at the compromise of relaxation, home comforts and a little luxury, to make it a perfect stay for everyone.
