George's lakeside wooden Tipi

Sleeps 2
1 Bedroom

Situated on the Suffolk-Essex border close to Cambridge, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill, and set within a Suffolk County Wildlife area, George’s, our cosy fully insulated wooden tipi, overlooks Rum Bridge’s mature reed-fringed treelined ‘Road’ lake; which in turn is home to specimen sized tench, crucians, carp and pike.

Equipped with twin beds, metered electrical supply 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 a dedicated sitting-out area and a small ‘field kitchen’(food prep area) with worktop, butler sink and hot and cold running water.

Nestling on the banks of the River Stour, in the heart of the tranquil Suffolk countryside, Rum Bridge is situated within easy driving distance of Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, and the Suffolk coast. The market town of Clare is home to a wealth of shops, cafes, pubs and eateries, as well as a 13th century Augustinian Priory, Clare Country Park, the stone keep ruins of Clare Castle, a medieval church and museum.

For your security, the gates are locked at dusk; however, guests can be provided with the gate lock combination, enabling you to come and go as you please.

To make Rum Bridge as affordable as possible, we allow guests to book our accommodation only, and to supply their own bedding, towels, etc. We also offer an optional bedding package – including sheets, pillows, a duvet and cover – on request; together with the following options and extras, all of which are designed to make your break as relaxing and enjoyable as possible…

Why waste a moment of your stay stalking the supermarket aisles, when you can have a mouth-watering barbecue pack – including a selection from; locally reared pork sausages, ribs, burgers, chicken, kebabs, rolls and salad – ready and waiting in your cool box?
