Rushbanks Farm Caravan and Camping Site is set in the heart of Dedham Vale, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The region was immortalised by the famous paintings of John Constable, and is thus known as ‘Constable Country.

Rushbanks Farm is the only official site on the banks of the River Stour, close to the charming Suffolk village of Nayland which is characterised by picturesque 15th century buildings.

It is a site with good facilities offering an original and family-friendly atmosphere, especially catering for boaters and canoeists. The river is wide and deep and there is a mile and a half of unobstructed water. There are several landing stages, and launching over the bank is easy.

Downstream there are two-step weir portages leading to the famed Anchor Pub at Nayland, and upstream two more portages can be navigated to reach the village of Bures St Mary. This part of the river is probably the quietest and most attractive section of the whole paddling adventure.

A public footpath also crosses our farm, with several walking trails to choose from.

The site first opened in the 1960s and has been in the Bates family for three generations. It is currently operated by Gareth and James Bates who will be pleased to see you down there on-site.

Over the years the site has grown in popularity, with people returning at different times of the year to enjoy the changing colours of spring, summer and autumn.

Rushbanks Farm welcomes families who want to enjoy themselves, whilst providing many opportunities for nature lovers and those who want to explore the great outdoors - or others who just want to relax, and wind down around a campfire under the stars at night.

We hope to see you soon!
