Had a lovely relaxing break on this lovely campsite. The site is nicely laid out with plenty of room on the pitches, and a new entrance to the site. The toilet block although small, only one shower each, was spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water. The owners are extremely friendly people who couldn't do enough for you. Chickens run free range over the site and there are always plenty of free range chicken and duck eggs for sale.

There is a footpath to the local pub, which is a community owned pub, called the Sorrell Horse, which serves excellent meals and fantastic breakfasts on Sundays mornings. Local shop is a short drive away in next village and nearest large shops are in Woodbridge, however for a major supermarket you'd have to travel to Ipswich.

The local countryside is a beautiful area for walks and the coast is only a short drive away, 4 to 5 mls to nearest shingle beach.

I visited during a rather wet weekend and still found things to do, but can imagine that in the summer it must be even nicer, and a lot busier, but I do intend to visit again.

The best campsite we've ever stayed on. Very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Don't be put off by total of two showers - rarely a queue. Showers and toilets clean; showers hot. Pitches generous and no problem hiring firepit and wood. Big fridge to leave stuff in. Dogs welcome. Pub is two minutes away via fields (so no need to go on road) and has excellent food, beer and wine at reasonable prices. Does breakfast at the weekend, but we stayed midweek. We would have loved to stay longer but work beckoned. Will definitely go back again asap. Excellent shop at Hollesley (couple of miles away) that stocks pretty much all you'll need.

Just returned from St Margaret's. What a lovely place. Lots of space for each pitch. Free range chickens wandering the site. They also have Indian runner ducks which you can buy their eggs as well as the hens eggs. Fridge and freezer available in reception to store your food. Toilet block clean and basic only 1 shower and 2 toilets each. Children's playground near the church. Lots of walks nearby. Enjoyed watching the pigs and sheep on the site as well. The pub is only 2 minute walk via the path from the campsite, excellent food and service at the sorrel horse. Lovely beer served straight from the barrel. Sutton Hoo national trust is only 3 miles away, good day out. Woodbridge is the nearest town about 7 miles away. Ipswich about 15 miles away. Best to use the park and ride service from martlesham. Lovely site will go back as it was so relaxing.

Stayed at this site last year with a group of friends, so decided to do the same this year only the group is swelling! Without doubt the best campsite I have ever stayed at. If you have kids they will love it, a great play area near by and the middle of the pitch is left open, so you can group around a fire pit in the evening. The Sorrell Horse near by has a great range of ales, all laid down and great food, even breakfast in the morning if you wish. Spotless shower and toilets, could possibly do with another shower but hayho, when do you get it all. Lovely friendly owner`s who you hardly see. Going again later in the year with an even larger group. Beautiful Suffolk coastal villages just a short drive and outstanding walks from the site, what more could you ask for. If this place had a tabloid revue the secret would be out!

We stayed for 3 nights in June when the weather was scorching.

The staff were the most welcoming and friendly we have ever met at a campsite and we loved the relaxed atmosphere. The pitches were a good size and nice and flat. Good dog walking area.

The camp fires hired out by the campsite were very popular and a nice touch.

The toilet/showers were basic but adequate.

The local pub the sorrel horse was a picture postcard pub with good ale and food at good prices.

The only negative for me. Please please number the pitches, we spent ages on arrival trying to figure out where we were meant to be!

We will be returning it is the most relaxing and friendly camp site yet!

Stayed at St Margaret's Saturday night at short notice. Owners couldn't have been more accommodating. We arrived mid morning, and although the site was busy were shown a number of pitches to choose from. The site is fairly basic with only 1 shower and 2 toilets for men and the same for women. That saying we never had to queue. The best thing about the site is that the use of fire pits is actively encouraged (why we stayed here), with good quality seasoned wood which can bought on site.

Local pub just down the road which looked busy but we didn't get to try. Nice large pitches on level ground although watch out for rabbit holes!

Would stay here again.
