Welcome to Dawn Chorus Glamping Holidays


Luxury Glamping Holidays in the UK


Welcome to the tranquillity of Barsham and the big skies of Suffolk. A small working farm, with laying  chickens, sheep and cows.


We have 2 luxury tented lodges that can sleep a family of 6 - 8 in style with hot running water, electric sockets and wood burning cooker complimented with an electric stove, private toilet and shower.


Or you could hire one of three shepherds huts for that romantic retreat, a family get away or somewhere to put your head down, after cycling or walking all day. They are fully insulated and heated so what ever the weather they are warm and cosy. They all have there own showers and toilet, so no running across a field at night.


If you would like to really put your feet up, why don't you order a stew on arrival or have a full English breakfast delivered to your door.


Each tent and shepherd hut has its own BBQ which can also be used as a fire pit, a fantastic way to pass a evening sitting around the fire and watching the sunsets and stars of our big skies.


This site is ideal for group or family gatherings


You will delight in the space, fresh air and seeing how a working farm works. This is a time to get away from all things modern and resort back to nature.


The Shepherd's Huts

Our huts are hand built by Riverside Shepherds Huts, using the traditional methods, originally these huts were built for agriculture workers working away from the farm i.e. during lambing time or a gamekeeper on a large estate.


Our huts have the traditional look, but all the modern comforts without the distraction of TV wifi etc.


We have introduced three shepherds’ huts to our site. Each one offering something different. Once again we are offering outdoor living with a twist- luxury, comfort, beautiful countryside, and the great outdoors. All our huts have a bespoke kitchen area, and a well thought out shower/toilet area, so no running across fields in the night. They are fully insulated and heated.


Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or rural retreat with the family our shepherd’s huts have everything.


These are perfect for a Luxury Glamping Holiday

The lodges are very comfortable and include everything required to make your stay extra special.

Gail Ablett


Just wanted to drop you a few lines to say what a wonderful weekend away we had at Dawn Chorus.

The tent was amazing and really well equipped, was so nice not to have to bring along all our bedding and towels as with most glamping breaks we have done.

The cake was delicious and we all tucked into it.

Loved the fact that there was open space and that you haven't put loads of tents and huts on the field.

We are all looking forward to booking up again and visiting next year.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dawn Chorus.
