Wardens Trust provides recreational facilities for people with disabilities, the elderly and their carers on the idyllic Suffolk Coastline

A liberating life enhancing experience

Situated on the East Suffolk coast, 200 yards from the sea, Wardens offers an unique experience for all who visit and enjoy its facilities. Whether indoors or outdoors, there is always something on offer in the light and natural environment that Wardens provides.

.

It is not just safe and spacious for those who use it, but for many it is a liberating experience, due to the situation and freedom of space it offers to all - especially to children whose lives often do not have such opportunities.

Camping at Wardens

Two camping sites for all you outdoor enthusiasts! These are called "Pony Paddock" and "Wardens Hall"

Our camping facilities attract young of all ages, who come to experience and enjoy the great outdoors, ranging from school groups taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, Brownies, Cubs, and Scouts etc., to special groups of children, some selected from Inner London schools, and many of whom have never seen the sea.

There's so much to see and do!
