The campers have come out of their dry winter storage, enjoyed a thorough service and have all sailed through their MOTs, super. Our campers are the original campers from the 1970s - beautifully restoredto give you both that wonderful nostalgic feeling as well as a fresh quirky touch of luxury. We do go the extra mile and provide you with good equipment, fresh coffee, bunting even fairy lights ! Look out for us in the next edition of Coast Magazine.

VW Bullibarn relocated to join Nomad Living at Friars barn in December 2011. VW Bullibarn is our sales, repairs and parts business.

Close to mainline station
Most of our customers drive to us being conveniently located just a couple of miles from the A12. We do have an arrangemeent for customers to leave their cars with us but if you prefer to leave the car behind, just 5 minutes from our collection point is the newly refurbished Marks Tey mainline station . Nomad living will be only to pleased to advise you on some local campsites and attractions to visit in Suffolk, Norfilk and Essex. Our campers are fully equipped to a high standard. We have some super nearby food halls, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants so there is no need for you to pack the kitchen sink. Pack lightly and hop on a train and we will pick you up from Marks Tey Station.
The Suffolk coast. I have a sense of back to basics, peace, recharging…..when I visit the Suffolk coast. The amusements of Great Yarmouth are not for me but the tranquility of Aldeburgh & Southwold are magical. Buy fresh fish from the hut on Aldeburgh beach, you won’t believe how reasonably priced it is. Canoe or Kayak on the Alde with ‘ikencanoe’- nearby camping at High House Fruit Farm. Park the campervan in the Southwold campsite and literally feel the sea across the dunes. Dine in style in the many restaurants; catch the ferry (rowing boat) across to Walbeswick for crabbing and great swimming. Try The Anchor they will serve you like you deserve to be served and the food is delicious. Please have a pint of Adnams, it tastes the best when in Southwold. Orford for the Keep and the wonderful fish pie at Butley Oysterage – or indulge in fabulous Oysters with a pint of Guinness or a glass of Chablis. Experience a boat trip aboard The Lady Florence. Minsmere Bird Reserve at Dunwich, Aldeburgh and Snape, with its well known Maltings and music festivals, Woodbridge market town, Shingle Street, Orford (famous for smoke house and Butley oysterage).
The Norfolk coast – wild and beautiful. Boat to Blakeney Point to see the seals. Hunstanton. Holt.
Essex - please forget the white stiletto and fake tan images from The Only Way is Essex. Essex is beautiful. The Colne Valley with its stunning viaduct at Chappel – visit the East Anglian Railway Museum and the little known Platform 2 Catering – a unique dining experience – read the papers with a cafetiere of coffee in a first class carriage while you wait for your brunch to be cooked for you, stunning views across the valley. Constable Country – Dedham, Flatford. Kayak along the Stour – Suffolk on one bank, Essex on the other (park your camper van at the rustic site at Rushbanks and they will organise your canoe/kayak experience). Claverley – Mr. Oliver’s parents delightful pub and the stunning Audley End. Saffron Walden. Thaxted . Experience the ‘sunshine coast’ …. keep on the road and bypass Clacton to arrive at Frinton – no amusements but glorious beaches , new little shops, cafes and bistros are popping up. Hire a hut here. Visit Lavenham with its chocolate box leaning cottages. Mersea Island… cross the strood (check the tide) and go west right to the end where the sailing club and house boats are and find the famous Company Shed – take your own bread and wine and share a rustic bench to enjoy the finest and most reasonably priced seafood, walk the island.
Hope this is of interest, so lovely here I almost want to keep it a secret.
A new local business: Platform 2 Catering at East Anglian Railway Museum
A truly unique setting with amazing views. Enjoy locally sourced food cooked with love and served to you at the seating arrangement on the platform or in the restored railway carriage itself.
The website is under development but do call Clare Cracknell for details on 07526 568364 or email email@example.com The museum itself is like stepping back in time. Look out for the Thomas the Tank days when you can enjoy rides on the steam trains. Other events include the beer and cider festivals. The buildings also make for a wonderful venue for private functions - Our local band 'blur' famously played there fairly recently!
