Enjoy the ultimate glamping experience in Suffolk and visit…
STARGAZE for days at one of these cute huts, says Deputy Fashion Editor Abby McHale.
Nestled in the sleepy Suffolk village of Laxfield on a 10-acre site bursting with wildlife, you’ll find adults-only Blyth Rise Stays and its handcrafted Igluhuts for two.
Expect white-washed interiors, leather armchairs, a Bluetooth radio, board games and a firepit.
Plus there’s a cute kitchen and bathroom. Stargaze while lighting the barbecue or hit one of the site’s tucked-away wooden saunas.
Come morning, feast on a hamper of sourdough, eggs, spinach, mushrooms, yoghurt and juice, from £21.
Owner Katie even runs alfresco yoga classes.
A 15-minute drive away is the market town of Framlingham, where Ed Sheeran grew up.
Castle On The Hill was inspired by its fort, so take a tour and check out views across Suffolk from the towers.
Entry costs £12.50 per person (English-heritage.org.uk).
There’s also a farmer’s market on Tuesdays and Saturdays, selling home-made fudge and artisan bread.
Fancy some sea air? Quaint Southwold is a 30-minute drive away.
On the high street, Chapmans of Southwold has cute locally illustrated gifts (Chapmansofsouthwold.co.uk).
Then pop into The Clockhouse on the Victorian pier for an epic Hat Trick Hot Chocolate, topped with Maltesers, cream and marshmallows, £3.95 (Southwoldpier.co.uk/the-clockhouse).
Later, either scale the 19th-century lighthouse for coastline views and a post-climb beer, £15.50 per person, or hit Adnams Brewery for a behind-the-scenes tour, £25 per person, finishing with a tasting of its many delicious stouts, lagers and pale ales (Adnams.co.uk).
For a fab sirloin beef roast with mega Yorkshire puds, book the Michelin-recommended Fox & Goose in Fressingfield, 10 minutes’ drive away.
The black olive gnocchi with a Thai twist is delicious, and don’t skip dessert when crème brûlée with an apple doughnut is on offer, from £25 for two courses.
Wash it down with the pub’s own brew, Goose Juice (Foxandgoose.net).
Just a 10-minute stroll from your hut is The Low House, a 16th-century thatched pub with small drinking rooms, a cosy fire and no bar!
Serving straight from casks in the Tap Room, it’s one of just a few British pubs to still do this (Lowhouselaxfield.com).
Meanwhile, in the heart of Southwold, Coasters prides itself on fresh produce.
Its beer-battered fish and chips, £13.50, is a must, but so is the pork belly with potato fondant, £18.95 (Coastersofsouthwold.co.uk).
A four-night stay for two adults costs from £430 (Blythrisestays.co.uk).
Psst! There are also lakeside lodges sleeping up to four adults if you fancy bringing friends.
