About Dawn Chorus Holidays
Dawn Chourus Holidays offers a wonderful experience with the family, glamping in North Suffolk in the Waveney Valley. There are two decadent tents which can each sleep a family of 6 - 8 in style with running water, private toilet, shower and wood burning cooker, boosted with an additional electric stove. Dawn Chorus Holidays is based on a small family-run working farm with free range chickens, sheep and a few cattle. Conveniently located in the small village of Barsham, just 2 miles west from the beautiful market town of Beccles on the Suffolk/Norfolk border.
Dawn Chorus Holidays offer two spacious safari-style canvas lodges set on a working farm near the beautiful market town of Beccles. Children will delight in the space, fresh air and seeing how a working farm works and parents will love to be able to switch off and have a deserved break from hectic lifestyles. This is a time to get away from all things modern and resort back to nature.
Luxury camping or glamping attracts families who want to experience the best bits of camping without the hassle of having to bring your own tent or put it up. It allows you more leisure time to enjoy your holiday, unwind and get close to nature without compromising on style or comfort. These luxury tents offer a chic alternative to traditional camping with plenty of living space. This is camping that parents will enjoy just as much as the children!

Each lodge is also fully equipped with all bed linen and towels, crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils and wood burning stove. A selection of family board games are to be found in each tent, which provide great evening entertainment.
