Swattesfield Campsite is a seven acre site with plenty of space yet an intimate feel. There are around 15 tent and campervan pitches alongside a range of glamping options from our 3 bell tents, 2 pixie huts and our hand converted Suffolk hay cart. There really is no reason to stay away!

What a secret hideaway! We stayed in the hay cart and had a really lovely stay. We could walk to nearby thornham walks which had a cafe and a childrens play area as well as an art gallery and other attractions so it made for a lovely weekend with walkable routes through woodland. The hay cart was warm and cosy, a wonderful foam mattress gave a great nights sleep and our son was underneath. Not having to battle with a tent mean't more time for fun and we took our own duvets and pillows so lovely and cosy. A log burner kept us toasty and they supplied a firepit that we could cook on and offered use of a kitchen box (but we had our own). Plenty of room to cook in the covered area along with a choice of picnic bench or bistro table and chairs to sit at.

My Husband and I have just arrived home from a long weekend camping in our own tent at Swattesfield. We had a really lovely time. It's a picturesque spot, right on the beautiful Thornton Walks, with a chilled and friendly vibe. having the freedom to pitch where we chose was a nice bonus- we very much enjoyed camping by the pond with the woodland as our backdrop, hanging out with the resident ducks and chickens and watching bats circle above us in the evening to the peaceful glow of our fire. Hot, powerful showers and clean facilities too. And even though the campsite was full on the Saturday night, it still felt lovely and spacious. When we ran out of the wood we had pre-ordered, we just asked the owners and they sold us more. Although the shop was not open, it was always easy to track down the owners. I saw someone else was buying gas canisters in the main field. Nearest Supermarkets were only 15 minutes drive away. I cannot recommend Swattesfield enough, undoubtedly, we will be back.

Cannot recommend this place enough. Loved it here. Peaceful and relaxed even during these COVID times. We were in the field by the pond in an empty bell tent that was already assembled on arrival so no having to put up or take down our own tent. Toilets and showers were in the neighbouring main field. The woodland area is beautiful and the kids enjoyed playing on the tire swing. It’s a short walk to Thornham Walks with a kids playground and lovely cafe. The Nearest pub is the lovely Four Horseshoes, again reachable through the fields (45 minute walk or short drive). Would definitely go back.

This place is idyllic! We were met on arrival by Jess who gave us all of the info we needed about the site and local area and showed us round. The toilets and showers were amazingly clean and there were excellent social distancing / covid strategies in place. We were in a pixie hut which was spotless and roomier than you think. You’re provided with a sturdy picnic bench out the front as well as a couple of individual chairs, a fire pit and a cooking tripod. The fire pit was wonderful and we spent hours sat under the stars gently warmed by the glow of the fire. We could actually see the Milky Way with our naked eyes from the front of the hut. As an added bonus the site had erected an open fronted marquee to the side of the pixie hut to still enjoy time outside even if it was raining, which we did as it did rain a fair bit! There is a wonderful woodland at the back of the campsite you can wander, as well as a beautiful woodland walk to the Thornham café just 15 minutes away. This was our first visit here, but certainly won’t be out last. There’s literally nothing I can suggest for an improvement!
