Glamping Suffolk

Secret Meadows in Suffolk offers glamping at its best with stylish accommodation set at a beautiful wildlife site. There is a variety of accommodation for you to choose from including Luxury Lodge Tents and a Gypsy Caravan with Shepherd’s Hut (‘Gypsy’s Rest’).  The 115-acre County Wildlife Site at White House Farm comprises rare and idyllic countryside, reminiscent of scenes from the past. Our guests are welcome to explore the species-rich wildflower meadows, woodland, ancient trees and ponds. Nature trails meander through diverse habitats including old woodland in Herne Wood, ancient hedgerow corridors, regenerated woodland and ponds in Palmer’s Wood, naturally established grassland in Fleabane Furrow and species-rich wildflower meadows in Ox-Eye and Self Heal Meadows – not forgetting the charming, miniature meadow Old Mede which is a wonderful spot for picnics.

Children can enjoy wholesome outdoor activities including Bushcraft and Wild Ways workshops, meeting the animals and simply exploring their nature connection by playing in the woods or being in the wildflower meadows. There are lots of things to do at the wildlife site and in this very popular area of Suffolk which is full of rich heritage and attractions.

Secret Meadows offers a range of on-site activities, tempting ‘Specials’ to choose from such as breakfast hampers, barbeque packages, workshops and relaxing massage and a farm pantry full of wholesome food as well as plenty of treats.  By choosing to stay at this special wildlife site you are supporting a registered charity, The Sinfield Nature Conservation Trust, and helping it to continue caring for wildlife and the natural environment.


The luxury lodge tents are very spacious and wonderful for couples, families and groups alike. They are fully equipped with a kitchen, wood-burning range cooker/stove, dining table and chairs, comfy sofa, private loo and shower, and even a 4-poster bed. Each tent is nestled in its own wooded area, overlooking one of the many meadows. The kitchen has a craftsman-made wooden kitchen unit, painted in a country Farrow & Ball colour, with butlers sink, brass style mixer taps and wooden drainer, as well as a country style dresser. Oil lanterns, candle lanterns, and a candle chandelier, provide atmospheric lighting at night. You really have all you need!

This is a wonderful part of Suffolk to stay as so much is within easy reach, yet when you are here you feel as though you are completely away from it all. For days out, Secret Meadows is close to the beautiful market towns of Woodbridge and Framlingham, and within easy reach of the Suffolk coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty including Aldeburgh, Southwold, Walberswick, Orford and Dunwich.

Secret Meadows is a totally magical place and we’ve all had an absolutely blissful time here. Please don’t change a thing. We’ll be back! Thank you!  A. J. A., Cambridge

We have had an amazing time. The lodges are absolutely beautiful, the surroundings are breathtaking and Ross and Charlotte could not have been more kind or helpful. We loved the Pantry – great idea – and the visit to the cows (Thanks Ross!). We can’t wait to come back! H.G., Whitstable

An amazing place! Every need thought about and catered for. Incredibly tasteful furnishings with the ‘wow’ factor as you enter. Wonderful time with whole family! Will be back.
