Cafe FortySix

(10 minute walk)

A short stroll and you are in the village square. The perfect spot for people watching, a fantastic cup of coffee and a slice of homemade cake. Fans on Tripadvisor describe this as “an almost celestial experience”!

Garnetts Nursery – Hatcheston

A personal favourite for the team here at the campsite. This lovely cafe is attached to a great garden centre. Ideal for a little look around, a warming bowl of homemade soup or slice of quiche. Or push the boat out and go for an afternoon tea. Delicious.

The Greyhound Inn

(Pettistree – 5 mins)

Pub classics, local game and fish dishes, a beautiful garden. This 14th Century Village Inn in neighbouring Pettistree  is well worth a visit. Check out the walks they feature on their website that take you from the village of Wickham Market to this gorgeous pub for a wonderful afternoon exploring our local countryside and enjoying great food and drink!

The Ufford Crown

(Ufford – 5 mins)

People and dogs are both welcome at The Ufford Crown!

People love this family run pub for top-notch food and drink. Make sure you book for Sunday lunch!

The White Horse

(Easton – 5 mins)

Sorry, but we do have yet another amazing eaterie just a short drive away. Or take a country walk on a summer’s day! Open 6 days a week for lunch and dinner this family friendly pub has a slide and climbing frame for the little ones and a wonderful enclosed garden.

The Duck

(Campsea Ashe – 5 mins)

Walk in, waddle out! Great tag line from The Duck which has recently acquired new owners. You could pop in here for lunch after a visit to the Monday morning auction in Campsea Ashe for a Bargain Hunt style adventure! We’ve picked up many quirky finds here.

Waterfront Cafe at Suffolk Water Park

(Ipswich – 30mins)

Want a view with your traditional cooked breakfast? The Suffolk Water Park is a big hit with locals and campers alike. A bit further afield but combine it with a day trip to one of the local Ipswich attractions, or just go and explore the Suffolk countryside.
