Just had my second visit to this site and will definitely be returning again.

O'Dell the owner is very friendly and helpful, facilities are clean, never had to queue for a shower and never run out of loo roll. Grass is well maintained and never cramped for space with units being well spaced and grass areas left for children to play ball games etc. Some lovely dog walks and views of the local countryside. Dog bins also placed around the site for deposits.

It is in a rural setting and quiet but that is what makes this site so wonderful. On my favourite list.

Was a bit concerned at first as had to drive through a farmyard, there was no reception to go to and didn't know who to see about pitch. Once sorted the pitches were very nice and level, grass was cut short and tidy and nice layout.

Facilities were a little hard to find as no-one told us where they were and there were no signs, but once again all was ok within a few hours. No children's play area.

Owner was very nice and friendly, there was no strict time that we had to leave, overall a very nice site and would visit again.

We just visited for our first time over Easter Bank Holiday as part of a group (many of whom have been there before) to celebrate a 'big' birthday. The fact it was non-regimented pitches was great and that catered for the tents, the tourers, the electric / non-electric users alike. We have never come across a friendlier or more helpful site-owner. We had a lovely relaxing break and the cleanliness of the toilet and shower blocks could not be faulted. Everything we needed was in easy driving distance and we also had a nice (25 min) walk on sunday to the village pub. We will definitely be going back again. Only thing we would like improved is proximity of drinking water to elsan.

Excellent campsite friendly owner with plenty of local knowledge very reasonable prices , plenty of space to pitch your tent on short grass with soft ground (no rocks). Toilets & showers nice and clean (with handy mop &bucket outside to leave it clean for next guest).NO play area but children (4&5) had a great time running and cycling around without getting in anyones way. No local shops but everything you need in Bury st Edmunds 15 minute drive away, upto 2hrs free parking in waitrose. Didn't get to try the local pub 20 mins walk across fields (grass path). But The rose & crown at long melford by A134 very nice good food children welcome garden but no play area. Also The crown at Hartest is very nice good food children welcome large garden with play area. All in all we had great time will definitely go back again.

Nice location, great views over open countryside from some pitches. The owner was very helpful and showed us around the site when we arrived. There is indeed a nice pub about a 20 min walk through the fields, although we didn't eat there. The site was good value for money but only comment would be that the facilities were a little basic and not many of them considering the number of people that seemed to be on the site.

We found this site using this website's campsite search, when looking for a campsite close to the Rougham airshow (a great little airshow near Bury St Edmunds, well worth seeing). And what a gem it turned out to be- a secluded campsite hidden away in the depths of the Suffolk countryside. We had a pitch with lovely views directly over the fields and farmland stretching far and wide. We also found the 'camp where you like' attitude very refreshing- rather than having regimented pitches. The owner was friendly and helpful, and the campsite seemed to have all the usual facilities in working order- including a large kitchen with cooking facilities and fridges. This is also a good location to visit historic Bury St Edmunds (15 minutes away) and the picture postcard village of Lavenham (10 mins away). There is no shop close by, but the village does have a pub (although we didn't try it on this visit). We will definitely be back!

Reviewer: Mummy2 2 reviews from this member

The site was nice. Very flat land, and the ground was soft. The owner was polite. Where we were pitched, it was quite a trek to the toilets and showers. However the toilets (only 3 ladies) were clean and stocked up.
No designated children's play area's but plenty of open space for them to play without intruding on others space. The only negative comments would be, it was just our luck, we had 'moany' tent neighbours who complained about the children playing too noisily! So this created a bit of a negative atmosphere as after this we felt too scared to speak!
However apart from this, nice site. BUT a word of warning, there is no shops nearby so make sure you are well stocked up for at least your first night until you venture further out into either sudbury or bury st edmunds, where there is a small tesco express. There is electricity hook ups if needed and water taps scattered about.
We stayed on a very rainy weekend so the mud was terrible, but when it dried up and the sun came out it was lovely. Definitely a place to go if you want no noise or entertainment and just to sit out and relax. Small tents were 7 pound a night and large tents were 9 pounds a night.

We were very lucky to have found this lovely campsite with a super friendly owner and beautiful surroundings.

The toilets were always very clean and the showers were nice and hot with plenty of water. Just a tip, use the 50p ones because the water runs out very quickly on the 1 ones.

The only set back was the fact that we had to drive for about 15 min to get the basics like bread and milk because there is no shop on site, apart from that we loved the site and will be back again.

Really nice location with views over open fields.

We were there when there was a VW camper rally in the nearby (and well worth a visit) village of Lavenham and despite being pretty much full up the site was fine and facilities generally seemed to cope. The only criticism would be that there were limited washing up facilities - there's a huge room but only two sinks!

The owner was really helpful and made us really welcome.

There was no official children's play area but the layout of the site meant they could play safely and without interfering with others' enjoyment.

Although we didn't try the local hostelries the site owner was able to provide us with directions and a menu for what is said to be a good local pub.

There is a farm walk and plenty of other paths to the nearby village and pubs.

A lovely campsite that I'd be happy to re-visit and to recommend.

Lovely, lovely site. Nice flat spacious pitches surrounded by mature and newly planted trees with views across open fields. Lots of room for the children to run around and play and still not get in anyone's way.
Grass kept nice and short. Despite small number of loos, no queues and we were there when the site was full. Showers a bit dated, but good & warm. We were part of a group of 13 adults and 10 children (age between 8 and 11) and everyone had a fab time. Will be back again.
