Reviewer: MrsNoviceCamper 10 reviews from this member

 This site is fantastic. We made a last minute booking and were not disappointed! The owner was there when we arrived to give us a few pitching options. We opted for one overlooking a field, with the most beautiful view of the local countryside.

The showers and loos were nice and clean. There were 4 'bathrooms' which were 1 for the shower, and 4 wet rooms (2 male and 2 female), which were 50p. The washing up sink always had hot water. There was a freezer for freezer blocks and a handy sheet detailing walks around the farm, and most importantly, how to get to the local pub!

Great site. Will definitely be returning.

 We have just returned from this site for the 5th/6th time and yet again have had the most fantastic stay.

If its relaxation, beautiful views,clean showers and toilet blocks, fantastic walking and plenty of very good pubs all in walking distance, then this is the site for you.

We have camped for 30+ years and this is without doubt one of our favourite places to stay.

The owner is one of the most pleasant and helpful people we have met during our camping life. If you haven't been to this campsite before I really do advise you to give it a try, you will not be sorry.

Reviewer: Paul R T 14 reviews from this member

 This is a lovely site, kept spotlessly clean, but run in a very friendly way by the owners. The informal pitches are arranged on a number of grassy areas, including one with great views out over the countryside. The facilities appeared clean and adequate (although we always use our own loo and shower in the caravan). The site is dog friendly - happy that well-controlled dogs do not need to be kept on the lead constantly. There is a dog-walk immediately adjacent. If touring with a caravan, we would recommend you approach from the A134 via Lawstall village (turning off the A134 at GR 888536). Other routes are fairly bumpy as well as narrow.

The surrounding area is pleasant rolling countryside with some good walks. We strongly recommend a visit to Lavenham, a well-preserved/restored early Tudor village.

 Great site, views over fields to church in distance, lovely walk to local shop. Weather was fantastic watched the sunrise every morning whilst enjoying the dawn chorus. Facilities very good, site enhanced with daffodils and lots of different trees. Easy access to A134 to visit Sudbury or Bury St Emunds, Long Melford well worth a visit if only to see the church. Site Manager Odell always on hand and willing to offer help and advice if needed.

 Situated adjacent to a working farm which, unfortunately, you have to drive through. Reminded me of a breakers yard, but the site itself is lovely. Wonderful views, pitches well screened with mature and newly planted trees.

There is a choice of walks around the local countryside. The 50p 'wet rooms' were great. Enough room to swing several cats and lots of hot water.

The other toilets were adequate, but could have been cleaner and the washup room with the fridge/freezer was grim. The local shop was well stocked. The pub took us 25mins to walk to, but it was dog friendly. We liked this site and would be happy to come again.

 Our first ever camping trip and we had a really lovely weekend at Brighthouse Farm and would thoroughly recommend it. We were made very welcome, the pitches were spacious and not 'all in rows'.

A playground for the children would have been a nice extra but there was lots of space to run around. We followed the lovely walk to 'The Swan' where we were also made very welcome, had a tasty 'Sunday Roast'.

Toilets and showers worked perfectly and were clean. Although a bit of a drive, Aldeburgh and Southwold are well worth a visit from here.

 After a long journey from Spain, we were most welcomed by both the landlady and the keeper, who gave us all kinds of support.

The site offers nice and clean toilets, a big washing room, a space for disposing of chemical wastewaters, and it's got plenty of room for kids (and grown-ups!) to play.

It's also full of trees for a bit of shadow, the grass is always in good condition, and there are a few walks around the cornfields to take, the nearest pub being just a mile or so away. There is a mini-market that comes in handy for the occasional bread or juice, or the morning paper.

Me and my daughters enjoyed the lovely talk here and there with other families who came from different places around England, and the atmosphere was simply very familiar.

 We have just got back from spending 2 nights at Brighthouse Farm and can't recommend it highly enough. We would have stayed longer but the weather forecast was really grim and we had already lived through the Suffolk Tornado!

The site has a lovely relaxed feel about it and is bordered by corn fields or trees depending on which field you go in. The pitches aren't strictly laid out although the electric hook ups do define spaces to a degree but there is plenty of space.

The facilities are basic but were clean the whole time we were there. We only used the 1 showers and they were more than sufficient, plenty of hot water and lasted long enough. The freezer in the kitchen area wasn't working brilliantly but was fine for freezer blocks but I wouldn't have wanted to keep food in there.

The owner was friendly and helpful and kept a close eye on a large group of school leavers who were there and we were not disturbed by them at all as a result.

Will definitely come back again.

 Just back from a long weekend at Brighthouse, Campsite was found easily, O'dell was there on arrival and showed us around and told us to pick any pitch we wanted, Chose one overlooking the wheat field. Plenty of room for children to run around, though no playground for them. Nature walks around the fields. Toilets were regularly cleaned, and filled with liquid hand wash and toilets rools. Used the 1 shower which was lovely and hot and plenty of water. Washing up facility was adequate but probably could do with an extra sink. Would recommend a visit.

 Just got back from an enjoyable weekend, the site is in a lovely spot. The pitches are fine, the site was busy and every time anyone used the washing up room the water died leaving you in a mess and there were not enough showers or wc,s. The local pub (The Swan) was great but a good hike when you have had a few.
