Buxhall Country Glamping
Buxhall Country Glamping, Rattlesden Road, Buxhall, Stowmarket, Suffolk, IP14 3DP
It took over two years for local craftsmen to design and build the perfect pods for Buxhall Country Glamping. It’s a sign of just what a labour of love this rural glampsite is. Secluded away on the edge of Buxhall village it’s been built with modern comforts in mind, with the likes of air-conditioning and a mini-kitchen in each pod, yet the place also has a real sympathy with its surroundings. The brown shell of the pod has an earthy camouflage against the backdrop of the hedge-lined meadow and circular windows constantly peep out at the trees and birds. It’s a perfect marriage of comfort and proper, outdoor living.
Run by amiable owners Val and Graham, the meadow hosts just two pods and a brand new yurt, each with their own private bathroom just a short stroll away. Every unit has a king-sized bed, with the added option of single beds and fold out mattresses that help boost the numbers (up to six people can sleep comfortably in the yurt, four in the pods), while the broad space of the meadow that stretches out before them is ideal for children to fling a Frisbee around or hunt for bugs in the newly planted hedgerows.
The smaller scale of the glamping site allows Val and Graham to give that extra attention to detail. Fresh towels are provided; tea, coffee and essential items are stocked in your kitchen; and a complimentary bag of logs is provided for the yurt’s wood-burning stove. They’re also happy to give local recommendations as they greet you and show you to your abode, from walks to the village pub and beyond, to the best places to go on the Suffolk coast.
It’s a 45-minute drive to the nearest beach, though there’s plenty to stop you along the way, with the local town of Stowmarket a happy diversion, particularly on market days (Thursdays and Saturdays). Historic Bury St Edmunds, meanwhile, is well worth a wander, with independent shops and cafés galore. The very best way to make the most of the place as a family, though, is to bring bikes, both for the local cycle route (National Route 51) that runs just north of the glamping site, as well as for the family-friendly trails in Thetford Forest. There are handy bike-racks provided in the meadow on your return. You see… everything has been thought of.
The Owner SaysGlamping is the fun way to have a back-to-nature experience combining camping with a touch of luxury, without the hard work of pitching a tent or lugging your own kitchen sink or sleeping bag with you. It's camping in style - home comforts included! Our site is in a peaceful meadow in the middle of the lovely Suffolk countryside, well away from the road so the children can play in safety and you can relax. Historical buildings are nearby to explore and well preserved medieval architecture as well as some of the prettiest villages with their chocolate-box thatched roof cottages.

Thoroughly enjoyable glamping stay
Stayed in a glamping pod at Buxhall and thoroughly enjoyed it. Graham and Val are very welcoming and the glamping site is quiet and relatively small. There were two other couples there when we stayed. We drove to the coast both days and really enjoyed exploring Suffolk. Facilities were excellent, beds were comfortable and toilets were top notch!
Great little site
Stayed 4 nights in one of the 2 pods reallly more of a small cabin. Beds great single bed fitted tall 12 you ear old fold out for a little one double roomy and folds into day bed All the equipment and utensils you could possibly need and more besides clearly owners are thoughtful. Great BBQ and grassy area for boules and badminton and fire pit for night time you will need car or ready to cycle 4 miles to town but we found it very central for exploring Suffolk. Great value for money. Val and Graham give you a warm welcome ! PS best camping loos and showers ever ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
