 This well kept site has beautiful views from areas known as “the top of the world” and “room with a view”. It is very relaxed - no long list of rules and Odell is a wonderful host.

Everyone we spoke to was a returning visitor and shared our view that this campsite is a gem. It’s peaceful and located in a picturesque area of Suffolk.

The site is on a large farm with plenty of beautiful walks within the farmland. We will definitely be returning!

The facilities are relatively basic but perfectly adequate (always had hot water) - we didn’t queue once.

Thank you Odell.

 We arrived at Brighthouse Farm early afternoon. went to the house and Odell the owner was pleased to show us round the site pointing out all the facilities etc. he then said if any stored van was in a position we liked he would soon move it he could not have done more to make our stay any better.

The only criticism we had was the showers only gave time to wash our hair before turning off but this got better as our week went on

All in all a great site with a very friendly owner.

 We have been coming here for many years. Odell is the perfect host and makes everyone feel very welcome.

The surrounding countryside is stunning by day. And sitting by the campfire under a canopy of stars at night is even more stunning. The atmosphere of the whole place is very chilled and relaxing. Many people that have discovered this campsite for the first time have come back many times to enjoy this little gem.

If your looking for a little slice of relaxation come give it a visit.

 Arrived on a cold bank holiday Friday. No-one to tell us where to pitch, even though we were arrived exactly at the time we said we would. We started to pitch, feet down, groundsheet laid for awning, leccy plugged in, and it started to pour down.

Then Odell arrives to tell us to move. So we had to upsticks and move. It also happened to the next van arrival. I realised Odell is very busy with the B&B etc but a name on a stick where he wants you to pitch would be very useful. This my only gripe; moan over.

The site is very pretty with great views. Flat and level. Lots of picnic tables for tents. Not regimented at all. Lovely dog walks on Odell’s land, with about half an hour walk to the local pub, the Swan, which is lovely, with great food.

There is no shop - it is shut - and it’s a long way to the next one, so take want you need for the first day or two. We only used the site loos a couple of times as have our own, but they were clean and tidy. There is a huge room for washing up, with fridge etc - could be used for board games in wet weather?

This is a working farm with equipment parked around, so you need to keep an eye on young kids. However, there are a couple of grass areas for playing games.

We chose this site as had tickets for tour and tasting at the Greene King brewery in Bury St Edmunds bought as a gift. We went there (pre-booked) on the Bank Holiday Saturday.

Tour and Bury lovely, apart from the rain and sleet! Loved Sudbury too. Will return another day.

 Lovely place to wind down. Gorgeous views across open fields. Odell is a very friendly host, with a very relaxed attitude.

The facilities here might be dated but the relaxed atmosphere of the campsite is far more important. I have stayed here many times because of that reason.

 This is an amazing working farm that offers great walks and a few lovely pubs withing walking distance across the fields. The location is very quiet ideal for those relaxing weekends and the owners are truly lovely and very welcoming. So if your at a loss for something to do pop down to bright house farm and relax, your be glad you did. We'll be definitely going back. This weekend actually.

 Just got home from a lovely relaxing weekend at this site, entrance via working farm yard that leads to well maintained lawns. Plenty of space, very easy going site owner, clean and tidy toilets and showers. Well worth a visit.

Reviewer: HanM 1 review from this member

 This was a lovely campsite and we had a brilliant weekend. It was a very hot weekend, but the mature trees provided plenty of shade so we were able to stay cool.

This was the first time my children (aged 7 and 5) had been camping and I couldn't have picked a better campsite. Good toilets and showers, but with no other facilities it was very quiet and exactly what I think camping should be about! The space between the pitches meant that we really didn't see (or hear) very many other people.

Odell was a lovely host, popping to see us both days we were there to check that everything was well.

We particularly enjoyed the circular walk around the farm, which was well kept and well marked. And we walked into the village as well (approx 1 mile) to get to the pub where we had a very lovely dinner. We only live a few miles from this campsite, but it was like being in a different world and I would definitely return.

 This was the second time I have had the pleasure of visiting Odell at his wonderful campsite and again I was not disappointed. This time I brought along my parents who had not been camping in three years. We had a fabulous time, the pitches were perfect with lots of space for the children and dog to play. It was boiling hot so a game of capture the flag using water bombs was in order!

Odell could not be more accommodating, he comes around to see everyone on a daily basis and is always helpful and chatty. The site itself is so well laid out with trees and greenery that you feel like you could be anywhere - rather than the nine miles we travelled to camp!

Thank you Odell for a wonderful stay and we look forward to coming again soon.
