The Owner Says
Wardley Hill Campsite is a new ecological campsite in the Waveney Valley. Wild flowers and grass are left to grow to encourage butterflies and bees, although there is still plenty of space to throw a frisbee or perhaps have a game of rounders.
Our six-acre site has some woodland, three ponds, a stream and a spring, here you can choose your own spot to pitch your tent. Our car free camping field is exclusively for tents while camper vans are also welcome to stay with us in a separate area.
Our facilities on site offer an authentic back-to-basics camping experience with clean composting toilets and a shower made from reclaimed timber. Camp fires are encouraged in our fire drums and dogs on leads are welcome.
About Wardley Hill Campsite
Suitable ForCouples, families, tents, dogs (on leads) and small camper vans – yes. Caravans and single sex groups – no.
NearbyThe quiet lanes offer peaceful cycling or horse riding and there are miles of footpaths to discover on foot. The river Waveney passes one mile away, providing the gateway into the Norfolk Broadswith boats and canoes available to hire locally. On the river banks, Bungay and Beccles (the latter with particularly good access to the river, a slipway and many boat rental companies) are both market towns with plenty to offer, including supermarkets, art galleries, great pubs, restaurants, tourist information and lots of independant shops. The coast is also near at hand with the stretching sandy beaches of Lowestoftand Great Yarmouth to the east for a smattering of ‘kiss me quick’ seaside. Follow the line south, however, for argueabley the best of the Suffolk Coast with Walberswick (the place to go for crabbing at the watersedge), Thorpeness and Aldeburgh all worth a visit.
Food & DrinkIn the village there is a wonderful Italian restaurant, The Olive Tree (01508 518147) and a small convenience store with post office. To the west in Broome you’ll find the Artichoke (01986 893325), a traditional country pub serving good food, real ales and a huge selection of whiskies. Both of these are within walking distance of the campsite. Looking further afield, Wardley Hill sits between Bungay and Beccles. Both market towns have plenty to of excellent food to offer along with supermarkets for a quicker grocery shop.
Family FriendlyHunting for bugs in the streams and den building in the woods entertain little tots on site, while there's a play park within walking distance and safe sea swimming a short drive away.
