Idyllic, affordable ‘offgrid’ camping and glamping short breaks, staycations and fishing holidays in Clare, Suffolk
Seeking a ‘digital detox’ – a retreat from the stresses and strains of ‘the new normal’? Rum Bridge Glamping offers an oasis of calm amid the chaos, in the tranquil Suffolk countryside.
Here, you’ll find a choice of intimate wooden glamping ‘pods’ and distinctive bell tents, tucked away amid the trees in an established County Wildlife Area.
Offering great value getaways for couples and family groups, each offgrid home-from-home benefits from a limited solar electricity supply – sufficient (depending on available sunlight) to power lighting and charge ipads and phones – as well as barbecues and/or fire pits and outdoor seating.
Carol’s Kitchen, the onsite food concession, offers hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks throughout the day. An evening meal delivery service is available, seven days a week. And bell tent and lodge is just a short hop from hot showers, flush toilets, and a communal food preparation and washing-up area.
For anglers, Rum Bridge presents a wealth of options – from pleasure fishing for tench, crucians, rudd and roach, to ‘bivvy angling’ for monster carp. And pretty much everything in between.
Although dogs are not allowed within the fenced lake area – due to the free-ranging chickens, hand-reared Muscovy and India Runner ducks, and other birdlife – our new pet friendly gypsy carriage ‘Rose’, ‘Saffie’s’ family bell tent, and ‘Hazels’ pod enable families to enjoy a peaceful break in the company of their four legged friends, close to the showers, shop and field kitchen.
Both Hazels and Rose benefit from a limited electrical supply – sufficient to power small panels heaters, low wattage kettles, light and device charging. And the nearby sleeps-6 bell tent is suitable for larger families holidaying with up to three well behaved hounds.
In addition to our family pods and extra-large bell tents, we also offer (subject to prevailing regulations) site exclusive bookings – ideal for socially distanced team-building days, kids’ birthdays, and unique stag and hen parties – complete with catering, marquees, and more.
