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.

Just had a great long weekend at brighthouse farm, yes the facilities are basic and sometimes not the cleanest but the location and easy going attitude are just great, and not to mention the fantastic value for money you are getting, it cost us 24 pounds for 3 nights away, say no more! all in all a great little site that welcomes you back, as we are already planning our next stay there.

What a fantastic site, clean showers spotless flat pitches, no wind due to cover from the trees & plenty of room for the kids to run around.Dog walks are available going around the surrounding fields, one of which leads to the local mini mart (about ten minutes walk)

The only fault I could find was that the shower would run out of water if someone was washing dishes next door, not good as the showers are coin operated. All in all a great clean and friendly site, cant wait to call again.

Reviewer: Sparkle* 3 reviews from this member

Set within very picturesque part of Suffolk. Lots of space for children to play, but disappointed by the toilet facilities which needed a thorough clean. No soap was provided, & one of the lady’s toilets had a completely broken seat.

The shower required 2 x £1 to give enough time for shower plus hair washing.

The setting was nice but the entrance would benefit from resurfacing to sort out the pot-holes. This site would be fine if you had your own shower & toilet facilities.

We never found the rubbish bins; recycling available in the village but not on site.

Reviewer: Eupton 4 reviews from this member

We have visited this site 3 times and each time had a really warm welcome. Owner is very friendly and will assist with anything, never complaining about the noise (kids had a lot of water fights)!

Had our own field virtually and there was a big group of us. The surrounding countryside is nice and there are some good walks for the dogs.

Nearby is lovely Lavenham, which is definitely worth a visit, also not far to local shops and farmers market, which made for some great barbeques. Toilets kept clean and enough space, although hot water runs out quickly so get there early or wait till later! Also could do woth some more fridges and a freezer.
