The Kip Experience in Suffolk.

A 3-night wellness and foodie extravaganza.
We’re so excited to get together with our members to celebrate and share the special places and incredible produce that this county has to offer.

When: Friday 22nd – Monday 25 July 2022
Where: Suffolk
Cost: £625 pp
Lodges for 4 or Huts for 2

It’s taking place at an idyllic 10-acre countryside retreat, where wild grasses and trees encircle a beautiful lake and 12 Kip hideaways. Come with a partner or friends — the Lake Lodges each sleep 4 and the Hawthorn Huts sleep 2. Needless to say, they’re all gorgeous.

With just 36 tickets on sale, you can expect a small-feel gathering, and a lovely, laid-back vibe. We’re planning a smorgasbord of delicious flavours to introduce you to local farms and wineries, including a bespoke 5-course feast in a fairylit tipi on the Saturday night, with an accompanying wine flight by one of the UK’s top producers. Oh yes.

There will also be seafood and champagne. Beautiful breakfast hampers. A fancy dinner in your accommodation. And — to counteract all that indulgence — alfresco yoga and woodland saunas.

In-between all that, you can sunbathe on your deck; walk into the village for local pubs; explore nearby nature reserves, or drive to the beautifully wild Suffolk coast for beach walks. The cool little towns of Aldeburgh, Southwold and Orford also await, offering antiquing and brilliant independents.

In other words, a perfect long weekend. Come join us.

The menus will be full of seasonal flavours — some plucked from the ocean, others cooked over wood-fired grills, and all paired with special varieties of wine organically produced at local vineyards.


The Experience includes:

  • 3 nights’ half-board accommodation (Friday-Monday).
  • Choose from a Lake Lodge (sleeping 4) or Hawthorn Hut (sleeping 2). The beds are some of the comfiest we’ve ever slept in, and with no children or pets to disturb, you can expect 3 long lie-ins.
  • A brunch hamper with 3 days’ worth of stunning local produce, and the option to add additional treats by local suppliers.
  • Friday night dinner — ‘Champagne and Seafood’
    A casual evening of fizz by local producers Shotley, award-winning smoked fish, lobster rolls and freshly shucked oysters by Pinney’s of Orford, and a range of delicious seasonal veggie and vegan salads by Jake’s Kitchen.
  • Saturday morning yoga with fabulous yogi Laura Davey — breathe in the restorative calm of this magical place as you stretch with the morning sun.
  • Saturday night dinner – ‘A Feast of Local Flavours’.
    A bespoke, 5-course communal feast by Jake’s Kitchen, and accompanying wine flight by Flint wines.
  • Sunday night dinner — ‘Cook At Home by Jake‘.
    An indulgent 2-course dinner by Jake’s Kitchen delivered to your lodge or hut, which you just need to heat up (choose starter and main, or main and pudding). Perfect for a laid-back final evening.
  • Unlimited use of the woodland sauna huts, hidden amongst the trees. Book individual slots for your crew.
