Reviewer: Amesy 1 review from this member

I recently stayed at The Dell for 2 nights as a stopover on a long journey to visit relatives. I was travelling in a hired motorhome with my carer, a new experience as neither of us had used a motorhome before! The Dell was highly recommended by my parents who had stayed on the site with their caravan.

Booking was dealt with promptly by email and as requested we were allocated a pitch close to the amenities.

On arrival we were welcomed by the owners Dawn and Andrew who were very friendly and helpful. The site is secure with barrier entry and the grounds were nicely kept. Andrew escorted us to our hard standing pitch and kindly plugged in the electrics. The site was extremely flat and clean. The toilets and wash facilities (sinks, showers and bath) were first class and spotless, each wash basin was equipped with a lovely hand wash. I was given a key to access the separate disabled toilet and wet room, again spotlessly clean and well presented. The wet room included wash basin, shower with stool and safety grab rails, toilet also has grab rails. The washing up room included two large sinks, again very clean. Dawn cleans these facilities daily to the highest standard and you can smell the cleanliness as soon as you open the doors. I noted there was also a baby changing room which included a bath for children.

Wifi is available and it's free! We had no problems connecting our iPads and the network was fast, better than my home internet! A chat with Dawn revealed the Wifi had recently been updated, it was great.

As we only used the site as a stopover we unfortunately did not have time to explore the area. On arrival we were given a map of circular country walks of varying time lengths and we did note a bus stop opposite. I am sure, if asked, Andrew and Dawn would be more than happy to point you in the right direction and pass on their local knowledge.

I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending a stay at The Dell.

Thank you Andrew and Dawn 😃

This site was wonderful. Dawn and Andrew were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We found this to be a perfect location with excellent, clean facilities and abundant wildlife. My friend and I enjoyed sighted red deer, hares and a variety of birds. We would very much love to re-visit. Thank you once again.

Just returned from a long weekend at this site and felt I had to leave a review. I agree with other reviewers this is a great site. It was easy to get to just off the main road, no narrow tracks to squeeze down. I liked the fact the site is divided into 2 parts, 1 for adults and the other for families. It's well laid out and has nice trees and shrubs. I think the best thing is the immaculate toilet and shower block which includes a bathroom in the ladies, excellent. Friendly helpful owners.

Booking: quick phone call to friendly site owner, deposit paid and day of arrival arranged.

Arrival: Met at entrance by owner; paid deposit for card for barrier; owner ran through the site regulations, showed us the facilities and where to pitch.

Facilities: Large toilet/shower block; not coin operated, plenty of units and hot water; no queues; scrupulously clean. Use of freezer and fridge. Wifi available.

Site: Medium size level site (tent pegs go in easily). Some traffic noise.

Supermarket close to Bury St Ed.

Would return to this site again.

I highly recommend this site: the welcome was quick and warm and owner willingly helped a couple of newbies park the van. The site is level and peaceful: any traffic noise didn't bother us: in fact a couple of pitches were taken by people there long term waiting for a house move. The toilet blocks are heated and absolutely spotless: they are cleaned continually and have a children's room with bath, also separate cubicles with bath, toilet and basin. The WiFi is fast and powerful and we had no problems connecting. The site is easy to access and well situated for local beauty spots like Lavenham and Thetford forest. There are local walks without needing to get in the car. To sum up, I hope to return to this site very soon.

This is our second visit to this wonderfully idyllic site in rural Suffolk. From the moment we entered the site, where we were met by the owner, to the minute we left, we were made to feel very welcome.

Entry to the site is via a security barrier which you pull up to and are met by the owner. After being shown to our pitch, most are grass with only a few hard standing, we were informed to set up before going to the owners house on site to settle up for our stay. The barrier is operated by a swipe card which requires a 10 refundable deposit.

The owners work very hard in maintaining exceptionally high standards throughout the site. The toilet block is spotlessly clean with 3 showers for the men and 3 for the women. There are ample sinks for washing, although they're not partitioned off like some sites, notably caravan club sites.

The site is only half a mile off the A14 which can be heard from the site. Others have mentioned that it went unnoticed, but there is definitely a constant drone of lorries and cars which are just over the field from some pitches. That said, it hasn't put us off from returning which we'll do again now that we've found the site.

Thurston is the local village with a wonderful pub, The Fox and Hounds. The pub has won pub of the year numerous times and if you're eating, you'll have to book. There's a garage in Thurston with a convenience store, but it's far cheaper at the Co-Op which is further in the village and stays open later. If you want to walk to Thurston, which is only 10 minutes, be careful as there's no footpath from the site. If you're returning late at night you'll definitely need a torch as there's no street lighting.

Bury St Edmunds is only 10 minutes from the site and the owner will give you a map detailing the best places to park. Some car parks in the centre are expensive for a small town at 2 an hour. If you don't mind walking 5 minutes you can park all day for 2. 30 and then walk through the gorgeous Abbey gardens. Be warned, the squirrels will expect feeding! We had a great time with a bag of monkey nuts feeding the squirrels by hand, with one particularly eager which would gladly climb your trouser leg for a nut!

Overall, an exceptional site in a prime location. Well worth a visit.
