On site we have a large childrens play area, horse riding arena (doubles as 5-a-side football pitch), and several acres of meadow with footpaths all around. Beyond our
site there is a network of both private and public tracks and trails that cover this area so you can leave your car here and walk for hours through beautiful countryside. Roads are quiet and ideal
for cycling or strolling.
Obviously being in the country there is a wealth of fauna and flora on the doorstep. Birdwatchers flock (excuse the pun) to East Anglia for the varied species of feathered friend on show. At Whitehouse Farm we have numerous resident common, and not so common, birds such as woodpeckers, various species of owl, and birds of prey who visit regularly. The wildlife includes deer, muntjack, hares, and bats amongst others.
Within a short 15 minute drive you are in the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds which still has traditional markets every Wednesday and Saturday.

Bury St Edmunds has many good bars and restaurants, including the smallest pub in the country, The Nutshell.
If you prefer to leave the car behind, a train service runs from the next village to Cambridge, via Bury St Edmunds. Or in the other direction to Ipswich,
Norwich and London Liverpool St.
