Alde Garden is a tiny campsite in the heart of Suffolk with an eclectic range of rustic, quirky accommodation as well as a handful of small tent pitches. Just 2 hours from London by train, and only a 20min drive from Suffolk’s diverse coastline – Alde Garden makes the perfect spot for a holiday, retreat or short break.

Accommodation dotted around the garden includes yurts, a tipi, bell tent, gypsy caravan, hideout plus ordinary tent pitches. Adjacent to the garden is Badger Cottage – a 4* self catering holiday cottage, and The Sweffling White Horse – our little pub.

Tucked away behind a perimeter of trees and hedges, the site has a range of communal facilities including a campfire, covered field kitchen, compost loo and jungle shower. Rustic pathways take you through the trees, shrubs, flowers and wildlife areas and the garden is also home to many friendly ducks & chickens.

Despite the site’s strong focus on low impact living you’ll find an area tucked away with a fridge freezer, microwave & washing machine as well as a clean toilet block with ladies’ & gents’ showers and flush toilets. Environmentally friendly holidays with a few home comforts!

The atmosphere in the garden is friendly and relaxed. Petite and compact, it is perfect for couples young and old, as well as small families, who wish to spend time amongst nature. It has been described by guests as “the perfect antidote to busy lives” and offers the opportunity to get away from it all and unwind.

We look forward to welcoming you to our garden!
