Run Cottage Touring Park is an award winning Adult only campsite. In fact, it was a regional winner in the Top 100 Sites Guide 2014/2015/2016/2017 published by Practical Caravan, Practical Motorhome and Caravan Sitefinder, voted the best campsite in Eastern England, and it has featured in this guide since 2012. To find out why, read on.
On the beautiful Suffolk coast, Run Cottage Touring Park has been owned by locals Andy and Michelle for more than a decade. It is the perfect place if you want peace and tranquillity from your getaway. There are a wide variety of historic sites to visit in the surrounding area, along with market towns, nature walks, the coastline and bird watching locations.
One of the best campsites in Suffolk, Run Cottage Touring Park is open all year round and welcomes tents, caravans and motorhomes. There are just 45 pitches in this five-acre site, meaning every pitch gives guests ample privacy and a real chance to get away from it all. Plus, 10/16-amp electric hook-ups are offered, alongside new toilet and washroom facilities, meaning all your holiday needs are served.
These high standards mean that not only has this campsite featured in the Top 100 Sites Guide, it has been granted an AA 4-star award and has been accredited by the Premier Park group and by Alan Rogers' listings, too. We also have a 4 star for Tourist board.
Tent pitches at Run Cottage are by the side of a pond which makes for a beautiful setting, although for safety, the park does not recommend these pitches for visitors with young families. Those pitching tents are requested not to put plastic sheeting beneath the tents as it damages the grass. The site welcomes guests to enjoy a barbecue, but requests that they are raised off the ground – camp fires are not permitted.
We have 2 glamping pods just for adults (for 2 people) with all linen included.
The campsite welcomes dogs and has a two-acre field adjoining the park where they may be exercised off the lead. Dog-friendly attractions nearby include walking the beautiful gardens of Helmingham Hall, the RSPB Snape Reserve, and the park and gardens of Ickworth House.
For those on two legs, there are historic sites close to this caravan park that are well worth a visit. The most famous of these is Sutton Hoo, a buried Anglo-Saxon ship containing many historic relics of one of the earliest English kings. There is also the 12th century Orford Castle – built to defend against coastal invasions, it is home to a unique, 21-sided tower. In addition, Framlingham Castle has a 13-metre high curtain wall connecting 12 hollow towers which makes for a scenic historical walk.
There are a few historic market towns near to the park. With over 1400 years of history, the town of Woodbridge's antiquity is reflected in its range of architecture. You can go boating on the river Deben and take scenic walks along its banks. The town of Aldeburgh is the centre of arts and culture in Suffolk and is home to an annual arts festival. Classical music enthusiasts should check out the Snape Proms at Snape Maltings, and those with a penchant for fine art will enjoy tracing the birthplace of John Constable.
Guests of Run Cottage Touring Park have regularly commended the campsite on its exceptional standard of cleanliness both around the park and in its wash facilities. The tranquillity of the location is another thing that guests have been hugely impressed by. This park is highly recommended by those seeking a quiet getaway with their family, partner and/or dog. One of the best campsites in Suffolk, why not discover why others rate it so highly?
