Wardens Trust provides recreational & holiday facilities for children and adults with disabilities and their carers on the idyllic Suffolk Coastline

A liberating life enhancing experience

Situated on the East Suffolk coast, beautifully located on a cliff top 100 yards from the sea, Wardens offers a unique experience, whether indoors or outdoors, there is always something on offer in the light and natural environment that Wardens provides.


We have a safe and extensive site with a large Hall, kitchen, and bunk beds inside, all wheelchair accessible, and a large clifftop camping area outside. We also have a specially designed holiday flat for people of all ages with disabilities. For many it is a liberating experience to come to our unique site.

Our delightful one bedroom Avocet Flat sleeps up to 4 people (including a sofa bed) and has an open-plan sitting room and kitchen with wet-room facilities.

Camping at Wardens

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


Our cliff-top camping facilities next to the Wardens Hall are a great place to come and relax & enjoy the sea air, used by family groups, clubs, community Hubs, school groups, Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, Brownies, Cubs, and Scouts from East Anglia to inner London.

There's so much to see and do!

Fantastic Facilities

Wardens is situated on a clifftop site with large Hall, cooking facilities in a very large kitchen, and bunk bed accommodation.  We have a separate holiday flat with disabled access and an outside camping area on the cliff. Come and enjoy the natural beauty and peace of this unique site.

A Spectacular Setting

We are situated on the cliffs between Thorpeness and Sizewell in a secluded site with direct access to the beach and 2 camping areas. Nearby there are walks over the heaths and along the beach on the Heritage coastline.

Our services for the community

We offer a range of services for local disabled groups from adventure camping for the young to a Meals-on-Wheels service and Bath Day for isolated elders in our community and a Singing The Brain Music days with Lunch Club for people living with dementia and their carers.

Events at Wardens

Music at Wardens plays an important part in our activities, with regular music days for the elderly, operas for children with special needs and an annual fund raising concert.

As well as coming to us for recreational activities, people can undertake arts based projects specifically designed to help disabled people, including those with dementia. 

Each week we offer a Bath Day for local people with disabilities or anyone no longer able to bath safely at home.  We provide carers to assist  bathing in our specially designed bathrooms with hoists . Wardens can arrange transport too.
