Hornbeam the Woodland Bell Tent (40 at Swattesfield Campsite)

- The most secluded glamping spot on a seven-acre glamping and camping site
The Owner Says
Made in the UK these tents are something special, having been built on their own wooden platform with no centre pole and internal canopy they come with all the creature comforts you'd need to have a thoroughly enjoyable stay. At five metres across they have a full-size comfy double bed as well as two or three fold out child beds (if required). There is astro turf throughout with torch lanterns, a gas hob, all your cooking equipment/cutlery/plates, your very own picnic table and a fancy fire pit. We also include at no extra cost a solar powered USB unit for charging small electrical items such as mobiles. Although there is a nearby drinking water point, this tent is located in a more secluded area of the woods rather than on the main camping field so is a little further to walk to the facilities block (about 3 minutes).

What a lovely place to stay,
Swattesfield Campsite is located at Gislingham Rd, Thornham Magna, Eye, Suffolk IP23 8HH
The market town of Eye is only 5 minutes away and all this with an easy train ride from London Liverpool Street and only an hour from Cambridge, 30 minutes from Norwich and 55 minutes from Southwold and Aldeburgh.
The nearest station is Diss (6 miles away) which is on the direct mainline from London Liverpool Street and often stops at Manningtree, Colchester, Stowmarket, Diss and Norwich. It's only an hour and a half from London and there are usually cabs waiting at the station (although we would advise to book in advance) or you can put your bike on the train and cycle.
