Get away from the hustle and bustle, in the heart of the English countryside

There is something good for the soul about reconnecting with nature and unwinding in the country. Maybe it’s the crisp country air, the hearty food or the friendly locals? Whatever it may be, this three-day retreat in Suffolk will have you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Your base is a sustainable farm, where you’ll indulge in homemade food sourced from the land you’re staying on. Work up an appetite exploring the meadows and walking trails in the area and indulging in award-winning local wines. When the evening comes, there’s nothing left to do but lounge around the campfire, toasting marshmallows and gazing up at the stars.

Itinerary

Welcome to Suffolk! Today you can check into your accommodation at 3 pm, a sustainable farm in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, that’s the perfect base for some time out. After joining up with your local host and fellow travellers for a short welcome meeting, you’ll head out for a guided walk in the local area, before returning to the farm for the evening. Tonight, you’ll enjoy wood fired pizzas and salads made with sustainable ingredients sourced from the farm itself and surrounding areas. Sit around the campfire as the sun sets and enjoy dinner and maybe a bottle of wine from a nearby vineyard or a local beer. As it gets dark, you’ll hear owls hooting and can watch the swallows swooping in the meadow nearby – a true picture of the English countryside.

Special Information
It’s very important that you attend the welcome meeting at 3 pm as we will be collecting insurance and emergency contact details at this time, and will head out on our first activity straight after. If you are going to be late please let your booking agent or hotel reception know.
This morning, you’ll be treated to a breakfast hamper of house-made fare, before heading out for a walk through the picturesque countryside to a nearby vineyard. On arrival at this award-winning vineyard you’ll be given a tour and, of course, the opportunity to taste a range of their local wines. If they take your fancy, you’ll be able to buy some bottles from the cellar door, before walking back to the farm. If the walk helped you work up at appetite, your host will be able to recommend a cosy, local pub nearby where you might like to treat yourself to a hot lunch. Enjoy a free afternoon exploring the area, or perhaps indulging in a few more pints at the pub, before heading back to the farm for an included dinner, cooked over the campfire. If the weather permits, a guided night nature walk will be on the cards after dinner, or if you’d prefer to relax, stargazing is another option. Round out the evening as any good camper would, with a supper of toasted marshmallows.
