Situated on the Suffolk-Essex border close to Cambridge, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill, and set within a County Wildlife area, Baywatch, our cosy fully insulated wooden tipi, overlooks Rum Bridge Fisheries' Back (specimen carp) Lake; a mecca for experienced carp anglers and home to a mouth-watering stock of mirror and common carp ranging from 20lbs-42lbs+.

Equipped with twin beds, solar lighting/device charging and exclusive outdoor seating and barbecue area, it is the right choice not just for anglers, but for walkers, birders, photographers… in fact anyone seeking to recharge the batteries in a tranquil offgrid rural retreat.

Showers, toilets and a communal ‘field kitchen’ are close by, as is a fully stocked tackle & bait shop. Hot and cold snacks, breakfast, lunches and dinner available from the onsite Carol's Kitchen food concession. And an extensive takeaway delivery menu is available seven days a week.

The Tipi’s exclusive bankside area features a dedicated fishing swim with access to many carp holding features, including small dot islands, reeds and lily beds.

All guests have access to nearby showers and toilets, a dedicated sitting-out area and a small ‘field kitchen’ (food prep area) with worktop, butler sink and hot and cold running water.
