Welcome to Green Haven Holidays. What a year we had in 2020. Let's hope 2021 is more positive for us all. We are preparing to open for self-contained units on Monday 19 April. Our shower & toilet block will open on Monday 26 April, however, guests will have to book shower times (we think until 17 May). We will continue to keep numbers on site lower than normal. We look forward to seeing you. Please feel free to use the enquiry link; or email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us on 07881 527967.
Back to nature - camping the old fashioned way
We are a traditional campsite that aims to offer a few luxuries and extras. We try to provide everything to make your stay with us enjoyable.
What we have is a lovely setting; an ideal location for exploring Suffolk and Norfolk, coast and countryside; a modern, warm and clean toilet and shower block; 7 electric hook ups; a friendly pub just up the road and a small reception area (The Provisions Place) with local produce and camping essentials available. Take a look at our Provisions List and feel free to pre-order. We can have your provisions ready for you on arrival, or perhaps choose to have a breakfast basket delivered to you in the morning.
Relaxed camping in a peaceful Suffolk village
We welcome 5 caravans or motor homes and up to 10 tents. The campsite is a grass field (with native hedging, a willow living fence and a wood chip path meandering through). It provides us with the opportunity to create a warm, friendly, secluded, back--to-nature environment in which to camp. We aim to provide fantastic habitats for wildlife and campers!
To help create the peaceful feel, parking is slightly apart from the camping pitches. Cars only tow caravans on and off the site, making it safe and secure as well as quiet. A garden trolley is provided to transport your tents and other belongings. Cars are just a few metres away in a parking area. If this poses a problem for you, please let us know when you make a booking and we will make alternative arrangements.
Sustainable camping in style
Traditional camping doesn’t mean you have to give up all your creature comforts. The site has a modern, stylish, clean and airy unisex toilet block with underfloor heating, wash facilities and showers. The toilets are flushed with harvested rain water and much of the electricity on the Green Haven site is generated by our field-mounted solar panels. The site has 7 electric hook ups (unfortunately not linked to our solar panels). In the future we hope to install a composting toilet.
In 2015, we installed a solar hot water system, so that the hot water for the showers can be heated without using electricity for much of the time. The showers work on a meter, to encourage campers to shower quickly to save water and ensure enough hot water for all. A 50p piece gives a 7 minute shower (enough time for two, if you can share)!
The Provisions Place
We have a small reception area with plenty of information about what to do in the locality. We have local produce available for sale from here too. A local raw milk producer (Fen Farm Dairy) means that orders can be taken and fresh milk supplied and a nearby wholesale delicatessen supplies us with cheese and Alburgh Luxury Ice Cream supply the ice-creams. Just up the road is Valley Farm Vineyards, contact them for tours and buy wine to drink with your locally sourced barbecue (Blythburgh Free-range pork)! We sell apple juice (Moat Farm, Kenton), locally made preserves, eggs and a few other essential supplies. We allow campfires if they are raised off the ground. You can hire fire baskets and buy sacks of wood from us. We have a fridge-freezer for campers to use.
