Autumn Full Moon Walks

We've confirmed the dates for our autumn full moon walks and are very exciting about our up-coming September walk on Wednesday 6th, when we're doing a local route around the village (lovely footpaths and beautifully quiet lanes!) with a half-way stop off at our ancient church of St Andrew's for a talk about bats from Suffolk Widlife Trust and we get to use bat detectors.  We really do have bats in the belfry, so we shouldn't be short of sightings!

Bats in the belfry!

We love our bats and enjoy seeing them skimming the meadow at dusk, hunting for insects and chattering away!  We've even invested in a bat detector so we there's a mix of pipistrelles and long-eared bats here.

Gorgeous coastline!

We couldn't resist sharing some of these lovely photos of Covehithe, taken in late June, with barely a soul on the beach and the North Sea warm enough for a proper dip!  The beach won't be for everyone (which, let's be honest, is part of the attraction) with limited parking and a 15 minute walk across footpaths and through woods to reach the beach and when you aarrive, there is absolutely nothing there except for sea and miles of sand.  No ice creams, no toilets, nothing (except a few tree trunks that have come down from the eroding coastline over the winter months).

Glamping film

We're delighted to be the subject of VisitSuffolk's latest film focusing on Glamping - take a look and see what you think.  The pizza oven (which features big time in the film!) has been put to great use this year and at last night's impromptu pizza evening we rocked through the cooking of 18 pizzas in no time - fun was had by all.

New - One Night Breaks in the Spring and Summer

We get lots of enquiries we get from couples who aren't sure if Glamping is for them and want to come away to try it out for a night, or who simply don't have much time!  So, always keen to respond to demand, we've opened up our smaller yurt Swallow and the lovely new Shepherd's Hut for one night bookings from Sunday-Thursday nights until the end of June.  So if you've been thinking about Glamping but weren't sure it was for you, or you simply don't have time to get away for a longer break, come and try it out.

"If you go down to the woods today....."

...you’re sure of surprises galore!   We're delighted to announce our exciting new wildlife art trail, designed by local artist Adele Goodchild (some of our guests will remember Adele from last year's lantern-making workshop) and situated in our lovely 3-acre meadow.

We're in the new Coastal Pass!

The Costal Pass is an exciting new tourism initiative to encourage visitors from Holland to explore the east coast and we're delighted that Ivy Grange Farm glamping has been chosen as one of the accommodation offerings.  You can see more about how the Coastal Pass works here (and get a flavour of how you might spend a few days exploring this amazing section eastern coastline, even if you're not Dutch).
