Why stay here ...

Garden House CL Site is situated just on the outskirts of Tattingstone Village. Our site is set within the grounds of our home. We are an adult only, dog friendly site. Dogs must be on a lead within the site area at all times apart from a fully fenced in secure area where you can let your dog’s run free and enjoy a game of ball. A poop bin is provided so please clean up after your dog.

We have five grass pitches, set in a lovely meadow. All pitches are spacious, level and well drained. We are currently a non-electric site, but hope to have this installed ready for the 2022 season.

We have an area of approximately ½ an acre which we have left for wildlife to enjoy, which you are free to explore. This area is not fenced in to allow for wildlife to come and go as they please, so we would ask that you keep your dog on a lead in this area. We have an abundance of birds that visit the garden which include Mistle Thrush, Song Thrush, Green & spotted Woodpeckers, Gold Finches and Skylarks just to name a few. If you are lucky, you may see deer, fox and our little owl.

There are many countryside walks from the site to explore. Alton Water is a short walk away, or you could take the short drive to the café or visitor area and hire a bike or learn how to paddle board. The White Horse Tattingstone is a pleasant 40 minute walk. This is a very old traditional Pub which serves food or you could try the excellent Kings Head at Sutton being only 10 minutes by car.

There are many attractions to visit, including Jimmy’s Farm (as seen on tv) Dedham Vale and Flatford Mill (Constable Country), or Colchester Zoo. You could also visit Snape Maltings, Sutton Hoo, Minsmere RSPB Reserve, Woodbridge, or Helmingham Hall Gardens and Beth Chatto Gardens just to mention a few.

Access to our site is directly from the A137, so easy access. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Garden House.

Last minute get away

The Garden House
Martin and Mandy are very welcoming in their new venture and we are sure they are going to be busy once people hear about the site which we can highly recommend. The CL is set in a lovely Meadow surrounded by farms and fields and is very tidy, spacious and clean. Pitches are all level and a great place to chill out and watch the wildlife. Its the perfect location for exploring Alton Waters as its close enough to either walk or cycle to and also for visiting the surrounding areas of Suffolk or Norfolk. You have also got The Suffolk Food Hall just up the road or Jimmy's Farm which are both definitely worth a visit while here. We look forward to returning again next year.

Perfect weekend away

The Garden House
Spending a lovely long weekend here at Garden House. Newly opened site, we are only the fourth unit to stay here. What a gem, Alton Water is on the doorstep, a drive to the estuary and beautiful walks only 10 minutes. Southwold just under an hour away but you don’t need to venture that far. Excellent dog exercise area, the meadow is a very peaceful place to have a sit and listen to the birds. Martin and Mandy are very welcoming and approachable. It will be very popular especially when the electric is all set up. We’ve already booked a return stay for next year!!
