Retro glamping site sleeping 30 with party spaces, for hen do's and festival celebrations near Saxmundham and the coast

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Happy Days Retro Vacations, Saxmundham, Suffolk, sleeps 2-30 in 8 bedrooms.

The secluded location of Happy Days Retro Vacations makes this venue perfect for parties; it's a slice of vintage Americana in the Suffolk countryside, a cross between an American Trailerpark and a garden campsite.

Red Shed Movies will be showing classic family friendly movies on site, twice a week (Weds/Sat) for the summer, free to guests staying here. A little taste of the American Silver Screen to go with our silver American trailers!

Our site is the perfect size for an exclusive hire party for any special occasion. If you are planning a festival style party, our 8 vintage caravans sleep up to 32 people (30 if all are adults). With up to 4 additional camping pitches for any extras, our glamping site has a max capacity of 45 people.

If you have concerns about the weather, there are indoor spaces that you are welcome to use. Our fabulous Red Shed with comfy sofas and a vintage bar is open for party bookings and the large polytunnel social space with seating and table football has been the setting for a disco or two! The large central fire pit is perfect for a big group. Noise is no problem (no neighbours) so bring your own music, lights and party!

A kids play area in the garden has swings, slide, trampoline and an old army truck. Individual fire pits for each trailer at no charge. Firewood available to buy from reception or bring your own.

The site has a spacious toilet and shower block with family style shower rooms and hot water washing up sinks.

The tree lined site is completely surrounded by farmland and it's only 5 miles to the Suffolk coast and 1 mile to local shops and Saxmundham train station (just under 2 hours to London).

We also host small corporate glamping get-aways, one night midweek stays outside of school holidays with exclusive hire. This can be tied in with a visit to Suffolk Escape Room, our on-site team building experience.

Please get in touch with us if you would like to discuss an upcoming hen do, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th or even 70th birthday party. If you don’t have anything in particular to celebrate, we are the perfect size for a get together with a group of friends or extended family.

Happy Party Days!

Facilities

Each caravan has its own kitchen area with oven and hob, fridge, toaster and all the crockery and pots and pans you would need to self cater.
