About this property

This Lantern and Larks site, Sweffling, is nestled between Framlingham, Southwold and Aldeburgh, this glamping site is perfectly located for discovering the Suffolk coast. At the end of the day, return to one of our six luxury safari tents, complete with proper beds, firepit and hot showers. If you’re travelling in a group, you could even book several tents and enjoy a break with your nearest and dearest.

Each of our glamping tents accommodates up to six and has three bedrooms that each sleep two. There is one king size room, one twin room and one bunk bed room per tent. If necessary you could also fit a travel cot in any of the bedrooms (these can be hired if required).

There is an abundance of on site activities that can be booked in advance such as Nature Meditation, Forest Bathing, Beachcombing, Astronomy Sessions and a Horse and Cart Ride. Please see the details in the additional information.

It really is the ideal setting for luxury glamping as a couple or with the whole family. The coastal estuaries alone offer much to make even the least interested of you ‘twitch' just a little. The Blyth estuary enters the sea at Southwold. As well as being home to Adnams ales, its marshland is home to a veritable A to W of wildfowl from Avocet to Wigeon via Dunlin and Knot. To the south, inland Woodbridge is a centre for sailing and other water borne excursions on the tidal River Deben, that spills gently into the sea above Felixstowe.

Between them, the Alde opens up at Snape, whose Maltings deserve a definite tick for visitors young and old. The estuary meanders through marshland and reed banks towards Aldeburgh, one of the most picturesque small fishing towns set between reed and wave. Enjoy the best fish 'n' chips ever along the Suffolk Coast, washed down with the finest of ales and discuss between you the poignancy of Maggi Hambling's 'Scallop', or perhaps just skim stones on the North Sea. All within easy reach of our Sweffling glamping site.

30 minutes from our Sweffling site at Lantern and Larks, the traditional seaside town of Southwold is just the place for a day on the beach. With its sandy beach and famous pier, we can think of no better spot for enjoying an ice cream or a game in the arcade! You can also browse the many shops, tour the lighthouse and pop into the Adnams Brewery – don’t forget to pick up a bottle of something to enjoy round the firepit upon your return to your luxury safari tent.
