Pitchcott Farm is set among the rolling hills of the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. The farm is a total of 150 acres and campers have access to a 15 acre meadow with vibrant wild flowers in spring and summer. The farm prioritises the protection and expansion of biodiversity so camping pitches are limited to retain the wild nature of the site. Look out for wild deer in the meadow, and you might hear the hoot of owls at night.

Blue Sky Huts

2 units · Glamping2 acres · Beccles, Suffolk, East Anglia
Our beautiful shepherd huts lie in a private two acre nature reserve in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. Sympathetically managed the meadow evolves throughout the year and offers the perfect spot to switch off from everyday life. You can be as active or chilled as you like! Simply relaxing on site enjoying the peace and tranquillity and seeing what wildlife comes to visit is a perfect way to spend a day. Alternatively there are endless possibilities for things to do. Some options include, hiring one of our onsite bikes and heading to the next door village for a vineyard tour, or a little further afield you can visit a brewery and sample their ales. Or why not pop to the coast for a day at the beach - Southwold, Walberswick, Aldeburgh and Covehithe are all within a short drive and offer completely different experiences. Do you love the arts? If so in our local town we have The Cut arts centre who regularly hold an ecclectic mix of live performances and exhibitions. The world famous Snape Maltings is just down the road with internationally renowned artists performing. In addition we are a great spot from which to enjoy Latitude festival!
