About Happy Days Retro Vacations

Happy Days hire beautifully renovated vintage Airstreams on a  child friendly site in Saxmundham, Suffolk. There are seven gorgeous silver ladies dating from the 50's to the early 70's named Betsy, Peggy, Dee Dee, Annie, Gloria, Nettie and Wanda. The smaller sister of the bunch is Elsie, a two berth caravan flying the flag for Britain. The Airstreams have fridges, cookers, radios, TVs (for DVDs) all kitchen equipment and board games. Betsy and Nettie are dog friendly, ideal if you want to bring your four legged family member with you. They each have a camping loo, so no need to struggle across a damp field in the night. They are perfect for families and are either 4 or 5 berth with travel cots, bed guards and high chairs if required. For those of you with young kids all of the curtains are black out lined! Jenni and Kevin hope their 'ladies' will be your chrome from home… their pun not mine!

A shimmering line of silver, very shiny American Airstreams - Dee Dee, Gloria, Betsy, Annie, Peggy, Nettie or Wanda of Happy Days RV are waiting to give you the glamping experience you dreamed of.

Happy Days was conceived when husband and wife, Kevin and Jenni fell in love with an airstream parked on their friends neighbours garden.  Fast forward some 5 years a life changing decision to leave the fast pace of London, a couple of children and six caravans later the couple are living their dream.  The vans all have a personality and a history.  The exterior and interiors have been painstakingly restored with minute attention to detail.  Each interior is unique, kitsch, retro, vey comfortable and fabulous for a kids break or if you're lucky enough to have childcare an adult break.  TV's and DVD's as standard if the weather isn't favourable. Outside each van is a picnic table with a large umbrella and a fire pit, wood can be purchased on site - for toasting marshmallows I would hope!!

The new small site in Suffolk is close to the coast and near to the lovely seaside towns of Aldeburgh, Thorpeness and Southwold.  It is entirely surrounded by farm land yet close to a small town.  The site is perfect for families with a big garden that has a great kids play area that includes a 1950s truck hidden in the trees. The new site shower bLock has been designed with families in mind with large style shower rooms. There is also a poly tunnel social space for rainy days. As well as the Airstreams and Elsie four camping pitches for tents, camper vans or retro caravans are also available.

The campsite is in a great location, lots to do if you choose or enjoy the simple way of life on the site.

Happy Days RV has become Kevin and Jenni's way of life they enjoy it and it shows.  

In short a fantastic 'something different' break.

Red Shed Cinema

Movie nights will be Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7pm.  This is free to Happy Days visitors. A little taste of the American Silver screen to go with our silver American trailers!

The Red Shed cinema will be open throughout the year on weekends and school holidays.
