WINTER ESCAPES: Go on safari in Suffolk

on in Travel

Because getting away from it all doesn’t have to cost the Earth…

Secret Meadows SuffolkIt’s a brand spanking new year, which means we’re starting to think about all the cool places we want to go to in 2014. Why not ditch the plane and take a Staycation instead? Staycations – holidaying in the UK rather than going further afield – are a great way to take the stress out of your trip. And with so many amazing places to stay in the UK you’ll never want to leave again…

We sent you off to embrace your inner child last time with a tree-mendous trip. And then on a little adventure on a pirate ship. And now it’s time for a safari in Suffolk…

You don’t need to haul arse across the planet for a safari. Why not take a wee trip to Secret Meadows in Suffolk instead? OK you might not get to see lions and tigers (and bears, oh my), but you will get to snooze in one of the six safari tents. Each tent is a little canvas cottage looking out onto the broad meadow and the beautiful wildlife that lives there.

Rustle up some grub in the kitchen, kick back in the lounge area or relax in one of the cabin bed. In the lounge you’ll find a large sofa, perfect for snuggling, an authentic wood-burning range, and a comfy dining area. If you’d rather dine al fesco just head outside to your decking area. And for anyone who doesn’t like to go without their home comforts, there’s a private gas-powered shower and flushing loo outside. Oh, and did we mention the hammock…

Rent a bike; take a day trip to the Suffolk coastline; explore the market towns of Woodbridge and Framlingham; or just make the most of the on-site massages, farm pantry and breakfast hampers!

And as the icing on the cake, here’s a load of photos for you to look at. Don’t all book at once, now…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
