The Owner Says
A huge and stylish 1970's American Airstream. Situated in a little wood with three other vintage American trailers in summer and alone from Autumn - Spring, the Sovereign has been recently restored with a cool 1970's vibe paying homage to its era. The Sovereign has a fixed double bed with memory foam mattress at the rear of the caravan plus two space age bunk 'pods' for kids to snuggle down in. It has a fully-equipped kitchen with a four-ring gas hob, kettle, fridge and grill. It also has under-bed storage, hooks and hangers, large dining area, two small radiators, log burning stove, electricity via UK plug sockets, blankets, DAB radio with iPod cable, torch and a chemical toilet for night time emergencies.
Outside the van is a decking area with a picnic bench and a fire pit (logs available).SHARED FACILITIES WITH THREE OTHER CARAVANS

Features & Facilities
All 4 vintage glamping units have been beautifully restored and have many retro Americana accents and furnishings along with modern essentials. Each has a small chemical toilet, fridge, hobs and oven or grill on board, electric heater, radios, hairdryers, linen and towels, plus a voucher for the local farm shop. In the 'Camp HQ' and Cart Shed the bathrooms boast luxury hotel style showers and facilities. Outside there are charcoal BBQs, firepits (logs available to buy) and picnic benches.
For Spring/Summer 2021, due to Covid19, the site has introduced changes to shared facilities and check-in process to reduce the risk of spreading any potential virus. The kitchen, pool table etc will no longer be available and facilities will be split between caravans with time slots given. We will continue these measures into 2021 unless the Covid19 situation changes dramatically.
NB. If you are particularly tall or 'well built' we would suggest booking the Jewel or Sovereign as the Bubble and Caravanner beds lose a small amount of area where they sit in the curve of the Airstreams tail, however this has only been an issue for one particularly large (extremely obese) set of guests in 7 years!! If you are coming as a parent and child duo then The Jewel may suit you best unless the child is under 5 years old.
It's a short drive (or long cycle) to the Norfolk Broadswhere you can hire boats for the day or dabble around in a canoe or on a paddle board, while the coast is around 40 minutes by car – Southwold is probably the closest coastal town. Explore the pretty harbour or try your luck out on the famous pier. Recently revamped and renovated, it, too, is delightfully retro with deliberately low key attractions. It takes 5 minutes from the campsite to reach the beautiful market town of Loddon, home to a magnificent parish church cutting an imposing presence off the main square. Pop your head in and take a look. It's 10 minutes further to Bungay, built within a meander of the River Waveney and home to several great gastro pubs (see food & drink).
Food & Drink
Guests are supplied with a voucher for a local farm shop (we can no longer offer breakfast goodies as part of our Covid Secure measures). A welcome pack will be issued before arrival with plenty of recommendations of where to eat nearby.
