Have just returned from my 4th stay at this site. Only two tents and a camper van in the bottom field so lots of space and privacy. If you want peace, quiet and basic then this is the site for you. No play area, no pub, no shop, just a field and some fishing lakes.

Showers and toilets really clean, always had loo roll and paper towels available. Yes the portaloo in the bottom field can be a little fragrant but does it really matter if you're only popping in for that final call of nature before bed!

The owner is really friendly, leaves you to your own devices but is on hand if you need anything.

Just had a fantastic weekend here. My brother vwas getting married locally, 10 of us decided to camp as the location was great and the price of the site was very good. We were greeted by Nicky upon our arrival and given all the relevant information about the site. My brother (the groom)stayed in the log cabin which was perfect for his last night of freedom. My wife and I and another couple took our eribas and had electric hookup, and the other three couples took tents. The was no pitches marked out, we were told we could have a sizeable area so we could all be together which was great. The portacabin showers and toilets were very clean and tidy. The campsite has a security coded gate for the night time. Even though none of us fish we could see the appeal as it was very peaceful in nice surrounding. We took our bikes and cycled to southwold without too much trouble as it is all pretty flat. The horse and groom pub is 0. 9 miles away and did great food and had a good selection of adnams ales. There is a shop and cafe nearby as well. All in all a great little campsite and we would definitely like to go back.

Just returned from a few days at this excellent site. It was immaculate, the toilets and shower may have been in a portacabin but they were spotless with toilet paper the whole time we were there, hot water to wash in, yes the shower was £1 but it gave you enough time to shower and wash your hair. We were in the hook-up area and have never had so much space before. For £14. 50 a night including electric excellent value. The 6 fishing lakes were all well stocked. Will definitely return.

This is a peaceful and lovely site. The pitches were well kept with no litter.

Nicky who runs the site made us feel very welcome, once she told us all the information we needed to know, were pretty much left to it.

The fishing was excellent according to my partner. There was nothing to do for the kids, my daughter found it boring.

So next time when we come we will bring a book, radio and loads of chocolate.

Happy to agree with previous reviews in regard to the very peaceful location and the well kept condition of the pitching area. Also to say that the six fishing ponds do add character to the site.

As you enter the site, you go past the facilities blocks, then comes the EHU area; continue along the ballasted track to the ‘Bottom Field’; which is the non-EHU area. This is a large field with no marked pitches. Plenty of room for large tents and seemed popular with groups of families setting up their own encampment with a gazebo or two! All very sociable.

The facilities are housed in two fairly old PortaCabins, the interiors of which are somewhat basically appointed. The first, with ladies & gents toilets, is open to both fishers and campers. The second has a combination lock and contains one ladies and one gents shower (£1). The combination is issued to campers only. Outside there was a useful, hot and cold washing up area. These facilities are convenient for the EHU pitches but quite a trek from the further end of the non-EHU ‘Bottom Field’. The ‘Bottom Field’ has its own PortaLoo, which frankly, was pretty smelly.

Very dog friendly at £1 / night. There is a nice dog walk along the foot path that borders one side of the ‘Bottom Field’.

To sum up: Field Farm Fisheries offers a very nice informal camping / caravanning experience but, we felt it was let down by the low quality of the shower facility – but what do you want for £10 / night for ‘van / tent and two people?

Just home from a lovely week in Suffolk based at this site. While it has the feel of being a little underdeveloped - just one shower in the gents and one in the ladies, just one sink for washing up - there really is nothing bad to say. The facilities were clean and tidy, we noticed no litter, and had our choice of pitch in the well kept camping area. There is a walk to the toilet block but not really a long one, and there is a portaloo in the field if you need it.

The showers are £1 for five minutes of hot water which isn't a lot taking into account how much you pay for a pitch (very reasonable indeed!).

What we really enjoyed was the wildlife on site, watching barn owls hunt in the neighbouring field is a nice way to begin and end your day.

Less friendly were the mosquitoes that come from the fishing ponds, if you struggle to tolerate them insect repellent might by the thing.

Fish and Chips available in the nearby village - although you must check the opening times, and supermarket maybe 15 minutes away on the road toward Lowestoft.

Altogether it's a fairly small, quiet and pleasant site. The owner was friendly, welcoming and helpful.
