Sleeps 6 lakeside bell tent

Sleeps 6
1 Bedroom

Set in a peaceful, fenced half-acre plot shared only with the Baby Bell tent, this beautifully appointed sleeps-six bell tent is ideal for larger family get-togethers, and offers ample camping space for additional guests as required.

Situated on a popular but peaceful angling and glamping complex close to the Suffolk-Essex border, and set within a County Wildlife site and working fishery, the tent overlooks two small ponds, and is equipped with a king-size bed, small double sofa-bed, two single beds, and outdoor seating and firepit area.

It benefits from outdoor seating / picnic bench and an exclusive barbecue / communal area.

Located less than 50 yards from showers, toilets and the ‘field kitchen’ (communal food preparation and washing up area), it features an ottoman to provide storage and seating, a coat stand, bedside table and a dining table and chairs.

In hot weather, the sides can be rolled up to provide extra ventilation and airflow. In colder weather, the zipped-in groundsheet and ‘second skin’ ensures optimal insulation, enabling you to get the best from your stay, whatever the weather.

Guests have access to the nearby lakes, flush toilets, shower, and washing up area (with hot and cold water). The nearby Carol’s Kitchen (onsite food concession) offers hot and cold snacks and meals throughout the day. And a main meal delivery service is available in the evenings.

Although, for security reasons, the gates are locked at dusk, guests are 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…

**Cook tents**

Purpose-designed cook tents, which can be pitched next to your accommodation, and feature twin-burner gas stoves with grill, kettle, cookware and crockery.

**BBQ / firepit package**

Guests who prefer to dine al fresco may wish to rent a fire pit with grill or BBQ, supplied either with logs and kindling or charcoal, tongs, skewers, matches and firelighters.

**BBQ food packs**

Why waste a moment of your stay stalking the supermarket aisles, when you can have a mouth-watering barbecue pack – including (subject to availability) locally reared pork sausages, ribs, burgers, chicken, kebabs, rolls and salad – ready and waiting in your cool box? (A vegetarian option is also available on request.)

**Double tent hire with beds**

Expecting company? Our sleeps-two bivvies with ultra-comfortable ‘wideboy’ beds are available to hire in advance of your stay. And fishing is also available at a discounted rate, allowing you to target the popular Moat and Road lakes for carp, tench, crucians, bream, pike and perch.

Rum Bridge Fisheries is situated on the outskirts of the historic market town of Clare, Suffolk, within easy driving distance of Cambridge, Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, and the Suffolk coast. The town itself 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.

**IMPORTANT: please be aware that Rum Bridge is entirely ‘off-grid’, meaning the quality of lighting – both in the pods and tents, and site-wide - will vary with the prevailing conditions.**
