Hastingford Fishery Glamping

4 units · Glamping32 acres · Uckfield, England
Searching for a peaceful holiday/short break without kids underfoot? Ramble along to Hastingford Fishery, an adults-only shepherd's hut and fishing site set in a scenic lakeside setting less than five minutes’ drive from the East Sussex village of Hadlow Down and 20 minutes from Royal Tunbridge Wells. This site should suit couples or singles wanting to 'get away from it all' and also fishing fans down to the ground. It’s got several fishing lakes to choose from with lots of different species, so settle down on the banks with rod in hand and while away a few hours (or days) in quiet contemplation, waiting for something to bite. But please note, the site is not for 'competition anglers' although there are plenty of good sized carp around. and asks anyone fishing to only use barbless hooks, and for fish to be returned to the lake quickly after being caught.Not the fishing type? Chill out in and around your secluded hut, or there’s plenty to entertain in a leisurely fashion: paths wind around the lakes and through copses/shaws (as this is the High Weald) plus through the local countryside. There are spectacular views towards the South Downs National Park from the top lakes. A spring-fed lake is also on site to cool off in with some wild swimming. Lots of bird life around, with feeders outside each hut and waterfowl visitors to the lakes.When it comes to eats, pick up or have supplies delivered from supermarkets or takeaways in Uckfield, Heathfield or Crowborough or take a drive to Buxted Park for some posh food or pubs in Blackboys, Crowborough, Ringles Cross, 5 Ash Down, Rotherfield, or Buxted (it'll take about 10 minutes to drive to any of these). Lots of sample menus in huts.

There's also pubs, cafes and takeaways. Please get in touch with any questions.

Shepherd's huts near Ipswich with fishing guide

Overview

Old town charm meets modern culture in this ancient city, but after a day’s urban exploration it’s well worth travelling beyond Ipswich’s bustling centre to experience quintessential British camping. Whether you want to pitch up on a farm in the borough’s suburbs or make your base further afield, you have plenty of options not far from Suffolk’s county town, with highlights including the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB, Broads National Park, and Breckland Special Protected Area.

Where to go

Ipswich Countryside

What Ipswich’s urban landscape lacks in camping opportunities, its scenic surrounds more than make up for. Satellite towns such as Woodbridge, Stowmarket, and Saxmundham offer all manner of camping facilities, including caravan parks, riverside pitches, and luxury glamping, as well as direct train access to the city centre.

Suffolk Coast

Encompassing 50 miles (80 km) of rugged coastline, this Area of Outstanding Beauty is around a half-hour drive or twenty-minute train ride from Ipswich. Holiday parks punctuate the seaside villages, windswept beaches, and wildlife reserves that line the coast, and opportunities for outdoor adventures abound, including surfing, hiking, and biking.

The Brecks

About an hour’s drive north of Ipswich, this expansive wilderness is best known for its coniferous wood, sandy heath, and dry climate—making it a popular spot for wildlife and its watchers, as well as hikers and mountain bikers. The gateway towns of Brandon or Thetford can be reached by train in around 90 minutes.

The Broads

Made up of around 120 miles (200 km) of waterways, this protected network is a great location for campers who like to keep on the move. Simply rent a boat in Norwich, Lowestoft, or Great Yarmouth chuck in your gear, and set off on your adventure, taking advantage of riverside campsites and pub gardens along the way.

When to go

Spring and summer are particularly busy times of year across Suffolk, so if you’re keen to beat the crowds consider an autumn or winter visit, when you’ll be rewarded with atmospheric skies, bird migrations, and cosy pub lunches.

Know before you go

  • Public transport is relatively easy to navigate, but if you’re on a time limit it’s worth bringing or renting a vehicle.
  • Wild swimming is a popular activity in the region, so if you’re up for a dip make sure to prepare and take all precautions.
  • Holiday parks can book up quickly, so make your plans well in advance.
  • Gear, including bikes and canoes, can often be rented at sites.
