A Suffolk campsite has been named among the best in the UK by a national newspaper.

Wantisden Park, near Woodbridge in Suffolk, was chosen as one of the best campsites in the UK in a list written by the Guardian newspaper.

They praised Wantisden Park for its views and surrounding nature, commenting on the "ancient oak woodland and lakes" overlooked by the campsite.

The campsite offers eight lodges and pods, as well as a timber-framed roundhouse, six wooden tents and two converted vans, once pulled by a steam engine. 

Some of the accommodation is made out of old living vans, which were once pulled along by steam-powered traction engines

Pitches are also available for tents, caravans and campervans, while the site has a shop and cafe to keep you supplied.
