Day 39 of The Quirky Tour and Jess and Dom enjoyed a visit to the Woodland Pods and Lodges in Suffolk, England.

Find out more about their visit:

First Impression:

A woodland camp with dog friendly pods and lodges set separately, each with their own facilities. You can park alongside the lodges and there is a small walk to the pods.

Great to meet manager Craig and to see and enjoy the site in person after working with them since 2019.

The Accommodation:

There are 2 lodges on site each with shower room and self catering facilities. Cedar Lodge sleeps 2 in a convertible sofabed, while Woodland Lodge has a double room and bunk room for up to 4.

The four pods are set within a woodland area and are well spaced for privacy but also offer an ideal place to come with friends.

These have a lovely cosy interior including an en-suite shower room.

All properties have a BBQ for dining al fresco and are dog friendly.

Food and Drink:

Be sure to bring food supplies for self catering - and coals for the BBQ - nothing better than dining al fresco amidst mother nature.

If you wish to dine out then The Guinness Arms is a beautiful 16th century coaching inn within a 6 minute drive or a great 1h15 walk.

Alternatively The Cadogan in the opposite direction can be reached within a 5 minute drive or 45 minute walk and offers a modern place to eat that is also dog friendly and has a play park for children. 

Pod interior. Bright space with double bed, L shaped sofa, kitchenette and dining table. Door leading the en-suite shower room.

Jess' top tip:

This is a great position to set off for various great walks in the area. The owners have created some maps of the best walking routes local to the site, partly following the famous Lark Valley Path and the St Edmunds Way.

Craig the manager of this site, recommends doing these walks and also speaks highly of nearby Bury St Edmunds that has a lot of Tudor buildings and a ruined abbey.

The Anglo Saxon village is a short drive or half an hour walk. We drove there and did a lovely walk around the lake accompanied by ducks and geese.
