Bumble 5m Double Bell Tent
The Owner Says
Features & Facilities
BUMBLE tents usually supply festivals and events, so expect a well-run service and all the little touches covered. The tents are five metres in diameter and sleep two to four people, with a double bed for grown ups and optional Jay-Be camp beds for kids. Each bell tent comes with a full bedding pack (including mattress toppers), bedside tables, extra cushions and blankets, led battery lighting, designer matting, cushions, blankets, bunting and fairy lights. The glamping field has its own toilet and shower facilities (there are additional facilities within the main attractions areas too, open to other visitors to the farm). Communal campfire area. Guests are given a wristband on arrival that grants them access to the main Jimmy's Farm attraction for the duration of their stay (it's a two-minute stroll from the camping meadow to the main entrance). The main park closes at 5pm each day.
Most people glamping here are coming for the the farm and wildlife park, rather than hunting around for things to do elsewhere. Alongside the foodie offerings that Jimmy Doherty has become so synonymous with, the farm gives visitors the chance to get close and involved with the animals. You can feed anteaters, alpacas and pygmy goats, listen to a range of daily keeper talks, walk in the butterfly house and plenty more – see the boards near the entrance to find out what animal encounters and experiences are on that day. If you do decide to head elsewhere, it's a 10-minute drive into historic Ipswich and a half-hour drive to one of the National Trust's most famed attractions, the Anglo Saxon burial grounds at Sutton Hoo (01394 389700).
Food & Drink
You're already on the farm so there's no need to go far to eat. The site is home to The Barn Restaurant and Coffee House, The Field Kitchen, The Snack Shack and Hair of the Hog Woodland Bar. Jimmy's Farm Park closes at 5pm to visitors each day but breakfast is still made available to campers and dinner and drinks are available to purchase between 6pm–8pm. The farm is also renowned for its rare breed meat. The farm shop is situated in a beautiful converted barn. From the butchery you can order sausages, bacon, joints and steaks, while the larder includes all the best seasonal vegetables. Further afield, it takes less than 15 minutes to drive to Waitrose and it's 10 minutes to both The Belstead Arms and The Brook Inn.
