Things To Do Hot Tub Glamping In Suffolk

When glamping in Suffolk, you’ll have tons of activities to fill up your days. Traditional campers will love exploring the area’s wildlife reserves and sanctuaries. There are even local spots for guests who love a bit of history and intrigue with their nature trips. And if you want to relax at home, you’ll find that your glamping pod has everything you need. At the end of the day, glamping is all about having, so here are some tips to get you started:

Treat your fellow aviary lovers with a trip to Suffolk Owl Sanctuary.

The Suffolk Owl Sanctuary is an aviary centre located in Mid Suffolk. Since its opening in 2001, the place has served as a sanctuary for numerous owls, birds of prey, and other bird species. It’s a wonderful trip for twitchers or if you know how to appreciate these winged creatures. The centre hosts flying displays every day and guests are more than welcome to visit its exhibitions and learn more about British wildlife. A woodland walk is also available if you want to get up close and personal with nature’s residents!

Plan a lazy day itinerary within the comforts of your holiday home.

Going on a glamping trip doesn’t mean that you have to go out every day. Sometimes, you need to take breaks from your excursions. These breaks are the perfect time to rest, recharge, and reassess where you want to take your adventure next. In fact, it’s strongly recommended to take a “lazy day” off. This will also help you to fully appreciate the perks of your holiday home. Don’t forget to use the hot tub, bake yourself some treats, or enjoy a movie marathon in the comfort of your glamping base!

Bring your cameras and capture local wildlife at RSPB Minsmere.

The RSPB Minsmere is the UK’s biggest nature conservation charity and is an absolute haven for animal lovers. The location boasts an impressive collection of woodland creatures and rare birds. When visiting, guests are recommended to bring waterproof shoes because the reserve mostly consists of marshlands. Make sure to bring your camera as well because you never know when you might catch a glimpse of an exotic species. And when you’re feeling tired from your day out, you can rest your feet in Minsmere’s onsite store!

Explore the surroundings and nearby towns from your glamping base.

You don’t have to venture too far when it comes to glamping adventures. All holiday properties are located near places of interest which are definitely worth exploring. Put on a good coat, an excellent pair of walking shoes, and bring your camera, and tour your glamping home’s local footpaths and villages. This way, you’ll be able to fully appreciate the charms of country living, soak in the sun, and breathe in the fresh air. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to know the location of great pubs and shops!

Enjoy a family day out in nature at the famous Fenlands.

The Fenlands, locally nicknamed “The Fens,” is a natural marshland located in the eastern region of England. Spanning over acres of low-lying flatlands, rivers, and streams, the area is notable for its rich and varied habitats, thriving wildlife, and tranquil setting. Some of its favourite residents include the bearded tit and the bittern. Guests love visiting the Fens just when the foliage is turning into a crisp golden colour. You can also pop in during winter when the ponds have frozen over and you can go skating. The Fens is a popular spot with hikers as well thanks to the Fen Edge Trail which reaches up to 280 miles!

Indulge yourself and catch up on your hobbies and interests.

Glamping is more fun when you indulge yourself in your hobbies and interests. If you find an open day on your agenda, take this time to reconnect with yourself. You can read a book, paint outdoors, or spend the entire afternoon baking delicious treats. Each of the glamping homes also boasts spacious decks and terraces where you can practice yoga or pilates while treating yourself to beautiful countryside views. Remember to take advantage of your home’s additional amenities, especially if it has a swimming pool or sauna!

Spend an afternoon under the beautiful foliage of Rendlesham Forest.

Not too far from the county town of Ipswich is a woodland park called Rendlesham Forest. The area is known for its beautiful foliage, walking trails, and mysterious allure. In fact, Rendlesham is famous for being the location of an alleged UFO sighting dating back to the 1980s. While no concrete evidence has emerged from the incident, it did establish the three-mile UFO Trail. There are also other walking trails varying for families, experienced walkers, and children.

Get your telescope, pick an excellent spot, and go stargazing.

Glamping in the countryside means having premium spots for stargazing. With not much light pollution and less traffic noise, you’ll get to enjoy and appreciate the experience even more. Take note of the daily weather and choose a night when the sky is brilliantly clear. You can bring your telescope, lay out a blanket, and just watch the stars as they twinkle. If you like, you can pair the occasion with a fire pit, a bottle of champagne, and some snacks. Some of the best stargazing spots include Suffolk Coast Nature Reserve and Orwell Park Observatory.
