Just got home from my visit to this campsite. We have just recently purchased a caravan and was recommended to visit Polstead by the previous owner of the caravan. We were so pleased that we took his advise and chose this site for our first outing. From the moment we arrived we experienced nothing but helpful and kind staff, they could not do enough for us, from helping up reverse onto our pitch to checking our fridge was working to even lending me a phone charger as I left mine at home. Being new to this caravanning lark we were worried we were going to make lots of mistakes and would feel like complete idiots, nothing could have been further from the truth, the staff went out of their way to explain so much to us to make sure our little adventure was going to be trouble free. As for the site itself, being in the hotel game myself I was apprehensive before arriving that we were going to be roughing it, but wow what a beautifully well kept clean and modern site we found. The shower block was spotless and looked brand new as did all of the facilities including washing up areas, laundry room and waste disposal. All in all we were so pleased we chose to experience our first outing here, my only concern is that anywhere else we visit will have a lot to live up to. Well done all at Polstead, thank you so much for a lovely experience, we will be back.

Lovely clean well kept site. Good size pitches with some having hedge screening which is nice for a little privacy. The wardens are very friendly & helpful as are the assistant wardens. Site well situated for visiting some lovely places & a bus service to Sudbury & Ipswich approx 100 yds from site also pub within 100 yds which also serves food. Some traffic noise from road but did not find this a problem. Small holding behind site has cockerels, geese & a horse. Which can cause a noise problem early morning and a certain manure aroma on some days. We booked for 2 weeks and extended our stay to a month as this is such a peaceful clean well run site. This was our second visit and we will return.

We were impressed with this site. The facilities were excellent and the wardens were friendly and helpful. The site itself is quiet, set in rural Suffolk. Sudbury town is about seven miles away and the nearest supermarket (Morrisons) is in Hadleigh which is three miles away. We walked for 45 minutes on footpaths to Polstead where we had a nice meal at The Cock Inn which is also 'dog friendly'. The nearest pub to the site, a few minutes walk, is The Brewers Arms but we didn't use it so can't comment. There is free wi-fi on the site. Don't rely on your sat nav to get here, use a map when you get within a couple of miles. The site is fifty yards from a huge water tower which is a useful navigation aid.

Lovely welcoming entrance to site all looks very cosy. Not disappointed when shown to pitch by very friendly wardens. The site is split into 4 fields and they are all different layouts some completely enclosed with shrubbery and some wide open.

The bottom field is more open with small play area for children in the middle. Roadways are coarse gravel so not easy for small bikes.

Some road noise from nearby A1071 but once inside caravan not really a problem.

Toilet block modern and spotless and small shop at entrance for essentials. Newspapers can be ordered. There is a Morrisons supermarket in nearby Hadleigh. Plenty of dog walks around.

Overall a very pleasant week at a very pleasant site. Will definitely return.

Delightful sheltered site which has a cosy feel although it is bigger than it appears, being divided into a number of enclosed areas. Level pitches, plenty of room. Motorhome service point easily accessible.

Toilet block looks like a wooden shed from outside but has been superbly refitted within, with large 'wet room' style shower cubicles. Always found them to be clean and well maintained as expected on a club site.

Pub/restaurant 'The Brewers Arms' 5 mins walk/stagger from site does very reasonably priced meals, had Cod and chips and the fish was enormous! The Cock Inn is about a mile and a half walk through the woods, decent pint and apparently does a discount for campers on meals though we didn't know this at the time (found out afterwards from an article in MMM Magazine)

Regular bus service from outside Brewers Arms to Sudbury (2. 50 return) and Ipswich. This site is located in a lovely and under visited part of East Anglia and we'd definitely like to visit again.
