Camping in the beautiful country of Suffolk, with a rustic dining experience like no other

The serene countryside of Suffolk is home to Fire and Feast; a small, secluded campsite and family farm. With such arable open country land at their doorstep, it’s no wonder the owners have enthusiastically created the perfect place to combine their two biggest passions — authentic rustic cooking and the tranquil outdoors. With a picture-perfect backdrop of the countryside, this is an ideal spot for campers to relax, unwind and create unforgettable meals and memories around the campfire.

Fire and Feast offers a variety of cooking demonstrations and hands-on workshops, so you can learn interesting new skills and experience the thrill and enjoyment of open-wood fire cooking. Sustainable farming and locally sourced food are the focus of Fire and Feast — the 100-acre farm is home to free-range poultry and the kitchen garden boasts seasonal produce and fresh herbs. Family, beginner and advanced workshops all emphasize learning the art of outdoor cookery, including using different techniques to build and control a fire, a necessity when cooking outdoors in the countryside. As the campfire wood crackles away, celebrate the best of Suffolk food alongside the other guests, as you are invited to enjoy an alfresco feast in the welcoming communal tipi.

Beautiful meadow pitches and pre-pitched safari tents are available for campers, which come equipped with cooking equipment, picnic tables and views of the countryside by day and Suffolk starry skies by night. Surround yourself with the tranquillity of the back-to-basics farm, set in a rural location but offering an abundant array of places to discover nearby. It’s a place of simple pleasures, a relaxed and comfortable base from which to explore the northeast of Suffolk.

Start with the Suffolk Coast, with its quaint seaside towns and sandy beaches. Adventure into the countryside to find coastal heathlands, meandering rivers and rolling fields — ideal for wildlife lovers, walkers, cyclists and those who like to splash around in the water. Attractions for fun family days out do not go missed — a few of interest and in close proximity include the Oasis Camel Park, Africa Alive and magical treehouses at Bewilderwood. There is history, art, music, shopping malls, quirky markets and, of course, local food and drink experiences.

With food and fun on-site and attractions so close by, come with a healthy appetite and lose yourself in the peaceful yet vibrant environment that Fire and Feast has to offer.

We had a fantastic time at Fire and Feast. The site is perfectly set up with fantastic facilities. The kids loved it. We really liked that cars were parked separately but close to the pitches. Each pitch had plenty of space and was set up with a picnic bench and we opted for a Roadii fire which was really easy to use for cooking and keeping warm and really added to the experience. It is a beautiful setting and really peaceful. The yurt where we had breakfast is a great addition and we had tasty food. Fran and family were brilliant hosts. Chris very kindly showed the kids the turkeys on the farm and told us all about it. Would definitely visit again thanks very much for our stay!

Classic South African Safari Tent
Surrounded by stunning views big starry skies within easy reach of the Suffolk coast! Hosts are very friendly, lots of local knowledge. Facilities are super clean, and Sunday brunch in the tipi cafe was delicious, they have an amazing plant garden and cook everything on site. We stayed in one of the safari tents, perfect with a great bit of kit to build fires and toast s’mores! And a fridge full of icecream and lollies on one of the hottest weekends was a blessing! We highly recommend staying here we’ll be back :)

From the host
If you love good food, woodfires and getting away from it all then Fire and Feast is the place for you. With big Suffolk skies above and a backdrop of birdsong and meadow flowers rustling in the breeze, our family farm is just the place for a long lazy weekend or a family holiday making memories around the campfire. The secluded campsite is intentionally small to provide you with all the space you need to relax and the large meadow pitches are cut into long grass to create further privacy. If you fancy stretching your legs, our network of re-wilded tracks and fields across the farm link to local footpaths, providing country walks for little legs or keen hikers, and miles of rural lanes are perfect for cycling. We love cooking on woodfires and want to give you every opportunity to experience the joy of outdoor cooking too, so every pitch is equipped with a full fire cooking kit/ fire bowl and we are always on hand to share tips and recipe ideas. Local food is abundant, with the Fire and Feast Kitchen Garden providing fresh herbs and seasonal produce every day, a great opportunity for your littles ones to discover the joy of munching on fresh garden peas or the wonderful taste of corn-on-the-cob picked from the garden. Our small onsite stop showcases local food from the area.Take your fire and food adventure further by signing up for an adult or family cooking workshop, with options to suit both new and experienced fire cooks and for shared family cooking; or avoid the washing up and dine in the Fire and Feast Tipi with rustic suppers on Saturday nights and a Sunday Café offering brunch, fresh brewed coffee and home baked cakes. For days out, you are spoilt for choice. The Suffolk Coast, with its quaint seaside towns and unspoilt beaches, is less than thirty minutes away; Framlingham and Orford Castles are both good to explore; shopping in Norwich and Bury St Edmunds and a multitude of small market towns with quirky independent shops offer wide retail choice; Easton Farm Park and Kessingland Wildlife Park for family days out and Snape Maltings, Summer Theatres in Aldeburgh and Southwold and a multitude of music festivals offer something for art lovers.
