Dog-friendly glamping pods in Rendlesham Forest guide

Overview

Back in December 1980, mysterious reports of suspected UFOs put Suffolk’s isolated Rendlesham Forest on the map. Today, this 15-sq-km mixed woodland pairs its historical intrigue with gentle and well-marked walking, cycling and orienteering trails, all within the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB just east of Ipswich. With a cafe, playground and greenery-fringed campsite, it’s ideal for adventuring families, and Suffolk’s coast awaits within a 15-minute drive. The spectacular surrounding country is a vision of meandering estuaries, serene heathland, dense woods, seaside towns and pebbly strands that, over the years, has inspired such artistic greats as Gainsborough and Constable.

Where to go

Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB

Stretching across 440 square kilometres, roughly between Felixstowe and Lowestoft, the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB revolves around a series of superbly scenic east-coast estuaries fringed by shingle beaches, ancient woods and low-lying cliffs. Uncover the famed Algo-Saxon burial mounds at Sutton Hoo, spot wading birds at Orford Ness, catch a ferry around the magical deltas and head out cycling or hiking along the AONB’s miles of trails. Some of the county’s most beautifully positioned campsites are sprinkled around here.

Inland Suffolk

Sweeping west from the coast and inland from Ipswich, Suffolk’s interior unveils timeless villages, ancient mansions, vibrant market towns and wool-era churches. Explore historical Lavenham, architecture-rich Bury St Edmunds, pretty Long Melford and Thomas Gainsborough’s birthplace Sudbury, before setting up camp anywhere from a back-to-basics woodland site to riverside park with kayaks for hire.

Dedham Vale AONB

This 90-square-kilometre wonderland, north of Colchester on the Essex-Suffolk border, is famous for inspiring the work of Romantic English painter John Constable, with its rippling farms, delightful villages, serene woodlands and open meadows. Savour its artistic beauty over a stay in a converted shepherd’s hut, on a farmland campsite or in a glamping bell tent by the river, all with canoeing, paddle-boarding, fishing, cycling and hiking right on the doorstep.

Norfolk Broads

Immediately north of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB, England’s east coast morphs into the vast wetlands of the ethereal Norfolk Broads National Park, known for its rare birds and wandering waterways, which demand in-depth exploration by boat, kayak or footpath.
