Reviewer: Mandreed 15 reviews from this member

This is a really lovely campsite. Proper camping! Not fancy, and not gimmicky, it is just a good old fashioned site. Claire greeted us on arrival and is exceedingly bubbly and friendly.

There are approximately 30 decent sized grassy pitches spread over 4 small different sized fields, separated by hedging and trees. Some pitches have EHU. One field mainly has seasonal pitches with caravans and awnings that appear to have set up base for the summer. There is also some 'glamping' accommodation on site if you don't want to take your own tent/caravan.

There is currently one loo block with separate male and female facilities, two toilets and one shower in each half. As other reviews have mentioned it is dated but was cleaned regularly and we had hot showers at all times of day. There is a new block under construction.

There are solar powered fairy lights in the evening to show the way to the loo! (The campsite is far away from street lamps and if you get a clear night take look at the stars!)

There are two covered washing up sinks. Fire pits can be hired or you can take your own if you have one. Freezer and fridge available at the farmhouse to freeze cool blocks or store produce if you are lacking your own cool box/fridge. Eggs, jam, sausages and bacon for sale and firewood.

There are turkeys, alpacas, pigs and sheep for the children to help feed and chicken eggs to be collected. Beware some of the chickens are very free range! We regularly had them wandering in and out of the awning and a particularly friendly/curious one even hopped up into our campervan! Our children were in there element.

There is a park next door which caters for both young and older children, plus there are woods around the site and open heath so plenty of space to play.

The pub is walking distance and serves lunch, afternoon tea and dinner at very reasonable prices.

Although the site is in a beautiful part of Suffolk it isn't hugely touristy but we had plenty of trips out including:

Aldeburgh and Thorpeness for nosy round the shops, run on the beach, hired a rowing boat on the Meare, ate ice creams, picnic food from the various delis and then fish and chips for tea (approx 40 mins drive)

Felixstowe (40 mins drive) visit to Landguard Fort and the port, beautiful and industrial at the same time! My husband took our older children on the passenger ferry from Old Felixstowe to Bawdsey Quay which is only 4 miles from the campsite and I drove round and met them!

Bawdsey Quay, (4 miles) shingle beach but excellent for collecting shells and thin sandy strip of beach alongside road for paddling.

We also visited Snape Maltings and Woodbridge by car and there are walks in all directions from the site. Or you can stay put and chill out with a good book!

The campsite is perfect for families and couples looking for a quiet site with a gentle pace. A new favourite site for us and we will return.

I don't want to say too much as don't want it to get too fully booked ;o)

We loved it here even though the weather was awful. The kids had a fantastic time running about freely in the woods on the swing and in the tree house and they LOVED collecting the eggs and feeding the animals.

It's a very short walk to the pub which is community run and serves good food.

We spent a day in aldburgh too which was about 45min away.

You can hire a fire pit and buy some wood and we did just that and toasted marshmallows and kept us nice and warm.

The only negative is the toilet and shower block as its very, very dated and is kept as clean as possible but I had no hot water when I had a shower and was icy cold. HOWEVER this is being sorted with a new shower/toilet block (phase 1 of 2) nearly finished.

The camp looks lovely at night with fairy lights lighing your way!

We will be back and this time hopefully the sun will shine.

Oh and the owners are lovely too.

My first review here and we're off to a good start. I phoned the camp and left a number. Within half an hour, James the owner had returned my call. What a very nice helpful guy he was. I turned up 2 days later for an overnighter to be greeted by Claire, James's wife. She was lovely, charming and bubbly. She showed me around and let me pick a pitch that I liked. Its a great site. Very quiet mid week and very clean. They have a field with different animals in. Elpacas, goats, chickens and lots of rabbits. At the moment there are male and female toilets and showers but new ones are being built as we speak. What there are, are lovely and clean but do need a tad of modernising as the camp owners are obviously aware of. At night there are lots of leds lights around the camp. It really is very pretty. Overall a lovely place to stay, hosted by a great couple. Would I stay again? Oh yes, no hesitation.

This was our first visit and we hired out the Bell Tent. What a result. It was fantastic with the added bonus of a fire pit.

The site was set in a lovely location surrounded by fields and trees and sheltered from the road. It was easy to find, clean, tidy and had a lovely friendly atmosphere with animals wandering around. My son and I were particularly fond of Darwin the ginger cat who frequented our tent. We had easy access to the local playground and pub via a short footpath from the site avoiding the road. In the evening the site was lit by fairy lights that made it magical for all of us especially as we listened to the owls.

Claire & James were friendly and helpful and involved the children in tending to the animals, such as feeding the sheep and collecting the henís eggs. It was a real treat.

The toilet block was small but always kept clean and tidy, really appreciated.

We had a lovely time and have special memories. We hope to visit again. Thank you Mommy and Freddie Bear

This is our second visit here and it was even better than the first if that's possible, we stayed 4 nights in the school holidays.

Claire & James Really friendly and helpful as ever, involving all the children that wished to in egg collecting, feeding the hens, alpacas and pigs etc and we could buy the eggs we had been collecting.

Such a wonderful place for kids, great play area short drive to beach and local shop. Short walk to local pub.

Great dog walks

Toilets and showers clean but basic.

The chickens wandered around the site, A chicken shared our tent one night, our granddaughter thought that was the coolest thing ever! and it snored less than hubby!

The ice cream van called into the site one day, shame it did not do that every day.

Fire pits available. Fridge freezer in reception to use (although someone took our big ice block so it might be wise to label them)

I love this site and I would give it 12 out of ten if I could.

We are a family of 5 & visited this campsite for the first time in the school summer holidays. We were among a big group consisting of 8 other tents with adults & children. We had a great spot where we could all be together, by the turkeys! The site is really lovely, there are chickens roaming around (watch out they don't go in your tent!) & pigs, sheep & alpacas to see. There is access to a great playground, which kept the children amused for many an hour! You can have a campfire, which is a bonus. We made use of the freezer, too. We went for a couple of great walks nearby. There are two washing up sinks - more would be nice as we did have to wait on more than one occasion. The main thing that lets the site down is the basic & dated toilet block, consisting only of two toilets, one shower (imagine the queues during peak season!) & two sinks. Also, the hot water did run out in the morning & a some of our group had to have cold showers - not nice! Some investment here would be well received! Would we return? Possibly.
