In 2018, Barry and Matt decided to expand the operation by the introduction of glamping cabins on the meadow adjacent to the building.
They quickly found the Wigwam Cabins to be the best on the market, with an excellent franchise deal available. They signed up and then Matt set about preparing the site for the arrival of six cabins, putting in the necessary infrastructure, namely access road, electricity, mains water and sewerage. This proved to be a protacted process but, eventually, the site was ready to start trading in October 2019.
The site now offers a cosy place to stay and somewhere to eat, as well as cycle hire and sales. Set in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, you can enjoy long walks, cycle rides and visits to local villages and towns and many other places of interest.
Wigwam® Holidays Maglia Rosso is set in the beautiful, unspoilt Suffolk countryside in the village of Hawstead, just four miles south of Bury St Edmunds.
Our south-facing cabins are set in a five-acre meadow adjacent to the former village pub, now operating as a cycling centre and licensed country café. We’re very family friendly, with a children’s play area and plenty of space for families to enjoy the peaceful rural surroundings.
If you fancy venturing further afield, you’ve got easy access to nearby attractions through a network of quiet country roads, linking us to Bury St Edmunds and other beautiful towns and villages, such as Lavenham, Clare, Long Melford and Newmarket.
To book the cabins, please visit the Wigwam Holidays website at Wigwam Holidays.
