 Stayed for a couple of nights, very wet which we were advised. With his gator I never would have got the van on the pitch. Used motormover to get it off.

Basic facilities.

Surrounding trees could do with a little tidying but it is the beginning of the season.

Nice walks and a pub 40 mins walk away, but check if it is open as it was closed Sat and only opened between 4pm and 7pm on Sunday when we were there!

 Lovely site with well kept grass.

Great hosts and great value.

Only one criticism is that the entrance to the site could do with a tidy up as it doesn’t look very inviting

 Very well kept site. I had choice of pitches and had a south facing, so enjoyed the sun.

I have a dog and appreciated the well cut walks around the fields.

Will definitely stay again.

 This was our second visit to Brighthouse.

The owners are very friendly, welcoming and accommodating, and have provided plenty of 'bathroom' facilities for those who don't have/use their own.

There's plenty of land for good dog-walks, and a path across the farm into the village, for the local pub.

A great base for visiting Long Melford, Clare, Lavenham, Bury St Edmunds, Sudbury, etc.

 What a lovely stay myself and young son had a this campsite.

Fantastic views over farmland.

Lovely grass site. Pitches not actually marked out so feels very relaxed.

Toilet and shower areas very clean.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back very soon as this was tester trip for my son and thankfully he loved it!

 Ross and Odel were very hospitable and caring. When we arrived at the campsite Ross showed us around and showed us several areas with electric hook ups. We then choose where to pitch.

The campsite is kept in very good order with lovely scenery.

Unfortunately we camped the night that 7cm of rain fell in 1 hour and ended up with a leaky tent, which cut our stay short.

We would like to come back again as this was such a lovely relaxed campsite. Next time though we hope for dryer weather.

 Beautiful surroundings, lovely flat pitches and well mowed grass. Friendly site owners, pub is about half an hour walk away across the fields and then along a pavement.

Check it's open before you set off as we had an wasted hour round trip when we found it wasn't open on a Saturday lunchtime.

Local shop doesn't seem to exist anymore so you really need a car if you run out of provisions.

Toilets and showers are fairly basic and a little grubby/mouldy in places. Washing up area very basic, with 2 sinks in a dark, dirty indoor room that has so much more potential. Showers are £1. 50/token.

If you don't mind back to basics camping and can deal with a bit of grubbiness this is a lovely area of the countryside in which to base yourself.

 Great campsite with the most loveliest owners. Been camping many times and by far the friendliest and most helpful.

The site itself was so well maintained and a great walking area for dogs. Nice walk to local pub.

The shower and toilets spotless. Had a guided tour of the B&B rooms they are lovely all very personalised and with lovely detail.

The only thing I was surprised at was it wasn’t fully booked. It has loads of trees for shade. Picnic benches all over.

Would 100% recommend and would definitely return. A truly lovely camping experience. Outstanding

Reviewer: Suzieflan 1 review from this member

 This campsite is in a beautiful setting and we stayed without electrics.

It is quite lively so we were glad to be away from the main electric area.

Dogs from a neighbouring tent barked a lot so next time we'd choose a site that didn't allow animals.

Toilets kept clean etc. We didn't pay for showers as for 4 of us that would have considerably increased the cost as the tokens only last for 4 mins.

Must be nice for people though as there's never a ling wait for a shower!
