Yurt, Tipi, Gypsy Caravan, cottage and camping accommodation in the Suffolk countryside
(COMBINATION HOLIDAY - eg 1 night in a tent + 1 night in the bell tent - please enquire for prices)
New for 2013 we've bought a brand new 5m bell tent from BCT and - in contrast to previous years - we've added a woodburner to keep you nice and warm on cooler evenings.
The bell tent has a double futon base with a sprung mattress on top, plus two/three single futons for extra guests/children. Our bell tent has a zipped-in groundsheet (no creepy crawlies!) covered with carpets and rugs, and a couple of low tables. At night the bell tent is enchantingly lit by solar fairy lights and tea light lanterns giving it a magical and cosy atmosphere.
Frequently asked questions:
What is the garden like? - All set within a mature wildlife garden of just an acre, Alde Garden is a warm, friendly - yet small and tranquil - site with a communal feel.We have no electricity at all in the garden, and we try to encourage an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, particularly after 10pm. Those looking for a really quiet retreat or romantic break should avoid school holidays and weekends.
What time is check-in/check-out? - Check-in time is 2pm, check-out 10am. Later check-ins/check-outs can sometimes be arranged by prior arrangement.
Is Alde Garden suitable for children? - Whilst we do encourage families we ask that parents maintain a suitable level of supervision at all times. Please consider carefully before booking - see our 'terms & conditions' on the 'booking & contact' page for more details. The garden is not suitable for lively/ball games. Our pond is unfenced.
Are pets allowed? - Sorry - no pets
How about groups? - To maintain the communal atmosphere in the garden, we prefer to keep group sizes to a minimum. Therefore 2 families or 6 adults without children is our maximum.
What's included? - Basket of wood (subsequent baskets can be purchased on site), tea lights, bedding (3+ nights), complimentary bottle of wine (5+ nights). Use of all facilities including fully fitted field kitchen (aka 'the shelter'), bikes, pizza oven, communal campfire etc etc (see the 'facilities' page for more details).
