Wardley Hill Campsite is an ecological family owned campsite in the Waveney Valley. Wild flowers and grass are left to grow to encourage butterflies and bees. The long grass surrounds lush mown unregimented camping spots for you to choose, some secluded and others big enough to fit several families. Small campervans are also welcome to stay with us in their own area. Campervans must be a similar size to a Volkeswagon Transporter and we do not offer any electric hook up or liquid waste disposal point.
Wardley Hill Campsite is an eco campsite in the Waveney Valley between Beccles and Bungay on the Norfolk and Suffolk border. Offering unregimented car free camping and glamping near to the Norfolk Broads and Suffolk Coast.
Arrive here and leave your stresses and car at the door. That done, wander through the long, wildflower strewn grasses that make up this unashamedly gorgeous and ecologically aware site in the heart of the Suffolk Countryside. Wardley Hill Campsite is stunning and buzzing with nature, set over 6 acres of mature woodland and rural meadows, with streams babbling through it. The apparently random layout here is in fact well thought out, with pitches carved into the long grasses and dotted around the field, blending in seamlessly and giving nature a chance to flourish and thrive around you. Depending on the size of your group, choose a small secluded area, or a larger spot if you are more than one family.
Wardley Hill Campsite is as close to wild camping as you can get….without actually camping wildly on someone else’s land when you shouldn’t be. Tents and small campervans only here and they are firmly off grid, so no electric hook-ups or bright lights shining from anywhere, meaning dark skies and starry nights. Vehicles are not allowed on the tent site (on arrival you trolley your stuff to your pitch, festival-style), which means less noise, less pollution and no doors slamming when your neighbours come back from a day out at Beccles. Facilities are reassuringly simple and charming; three pretty wooden huts are home to a hot shower and well maintained composting toilets, and homemade fire pits are available in the shape of upcycled washing machine drums - perfect for nighttime campfires.
If you love the idea of being out in nature but are either tent-less or in need of a few creature comforts, Wardley Hill has some awesome glamping options to choose from. There are two shepherds huts; one larger ‘Tinkers Hut’ which sleeps 5, the other - Hilda - sleeps 3; Stingray shaped tree tents suspended from the branches sleeping two or three, a Hammock Hut (also containing a sofa bed if you don’t want to be swung to sleep) and a large Bell Tent with proper beds. The Shepherds huts have private toilets and all of the accommodation is unique and beautifully thought out.
The nearby countryside is well worth exploring if you can tear yourself away from the camp (and no one will blame you if you can’t). Waveney Valley runs along the border of Norfolk and Suffolk and is a largely unspoilt area with idyllic villages, pretty market towns - Diss and Beccles to name a couple - Norman Castles, ancient churches and bags of local history. Adventure down the River Waveney which passes just a mile from Wardley Hill Campsite; you can hire a stand-up paddleboard from here and glide along the quiet stretches of water - the Bungay loop is motorboat free so you will be guaranteed a calm paddle here. From Beccles you can also hire a canoe, or if you don’t want to do all the hard work then take an organised cruise or hire a day boat. Crystal clear waters and calm conditions make for ideal wildlife spotting - keep a lookout for kingfishers and otters amongst other things.
Wardley Hill campsite offers everything you could want to make a camping holiday truly relaxing and memorable; a wild and pretty eco site with a limited impact on nature. “Camping with Soul” said one happy camper. No one will argue with that.
