 Have visited this site before and as always spotlessly clean, beautiful area lovely lake,

We will return again, one of our favourite places to stay 😁.

We like the information board at the entrance so we know which pitch we are on. Wish more sites did this.

 A peaceful spot if you're looking for somewhere to relax. Area kept tidy with beautiful trees and enough fish to keep those that fish happy.

Pitches are of a fair size with water and electric close by if that's a pitch you opt for.

Will stay again.

The next question is site location which is difficult to score as it depends on what you are looking for. If it's isolation and peace then it's perfect. If you want to walk to a pub or amenities then it's a bit of a distance.

Customer service question you can't really score as it's a pitch up and settle yourself in kind of place. We arrived shortly after 1pm and the owner stopped by just to say hello the next afternoon around 4pm. A clever business concept really.

The wash up area, toilets and shower was spotless however the water pressure of hot water is poor for the shower or washing up.

 Poor fishing lake full of roach

No where for grey waste water to go.

Very noisy people on next 2 plots drinking and being very loud late at night.

No dog waste bins

Lot of noise from recycling yard over the road.

 Lovely peaceful spot; very high quality facilities, well maintained.

Owners friendly but hands off - no pouncing on you with rules and regulations the minute you arrive!

We were visiting the area for a family event, so did not explore the local attractions.

 The site was ideally situated for lots of places, it was in a very pretty and quiet spot. We do not fish but the lake looked a good size.

We received a warm welcome from the owner who informed us where everything was situated after letting us get settled in and putting up our awning.

The toilet block was spotlessly clean and the charge of £1 for a shower gave you plenty of time.

We would go again as this site was well spaced out pitches so you were never on top of one another.

 First Class in every respect.

Tranquil, spacious well laid out site. Immaculately kept.

Wonderful showers and toilet facilities coupled with great covered over washing up facilities.

EHU on most pitches and fresh water supply.

The hosts Martin and Jane along with Brian made us feel very welcome.

A site we would love to return to.

 The site is flat with spacious pitches.

The owner is welcoming and helpful; lending us a longer extension cable.

There are only two shower/WC rooms, but that wasn't a problem as it is such a small site.

You need extra cash for a shower.
Everything was clean and well kept.

This is a very peaceful site which suited us fine.

Reviewer: Nicki61 6 reviews from this member

 Stayed at this site for 4 nights,

Facilities are great, two very new super clean spacious shower/toilet rooms just one criticism no plug socket for hairdryer but it wasn’t a huge problem as had electric in the van.

Electric, awning, dog, all included in the price,

Site is very quiet the only ‘issue’ we had was the roads getting to site, they are fairly narrow (a bit like driving around Cornwall) especially with a caravan on the back! The locals don’t tend to slow down or give way!

Other than that Brian - the site owner - was lovely couldn’t be more helpful, lake is good for fishing not the largest of lakes but apparently good for fishing.

Beautiful area and a Michelin star pub not far away - the Brewers if that’s your thing.

Would recommend visiting Bury st Edmunds lovely town with a lovely Abby and gardens, don’t bother with Ipswich we were not impressed.

Other than the local roads I would highly recommend this site.

At £25 per night it’s very reasonable.

 We stayed for two nights at this beautiful site. The owners were very friendly, checking everything was okay for us.

The pitches are spacious with large trees surrounding the site - it’s a stunning site for wildlife lovers who enjoy the peace & quiet of the countryside & also a quiet site.

The facilities were clean & modern, having a shower, toilet & sink all in one unit. It’s a small site so only 2 units, maybe another toilet would be welcome.

My husband enjoyed the fishing & caught a few good sized fish. It’s only a few metres from the pitches so easy to come back for refreshments.

A very enjoyable weekend, would definitely recommend if you like tranquillity. We will be returning :-)

 What a wonderful site we found at High Town House camping & caravan site at Rattlesden near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

We find all the good sites thank to UKCampsite, that encourages its members to leave a “star rating & reviews”, this makes it easier to find the best sites in the area you wish to visit.

Having said that High Town House certainly lived up to all its star rating & all its reviews, the whole site is immaculately kept, the hedges & trees were nicely trimmed, the grass mowed nice & short.

The pitches were huge, many separated by tress, there were plenty of water tapes on site & the electrical hooks were 16amps. This is a large site with just twelve pitches, so plenty of space to relax without being on top of the other pitches, just like camping should be.

Down to the front of the site was a fishing lake, again well landscaped, with well-kept grass, one of the campers was fishing, he caught one while I was talking with him, he said the lake was well stocked.

The site is situated in the countryside surround by farm land, our pitch backed onto a cornfield, separated by just a small hedge, so we had wonderful views across the open countryside,

There was two large wet rooms, both with showers, wash basin, with a hand dryer & toilet, they looked almost new & were kept spotlessly clean. Inside the same building there was a washing up area with two sinks, there was plenty of hot water, also there was & information board.

Our stay at High Town House, was a very last minute decision, when I found out I was given a week’s rest bite from hospital treatment, so after finding High Town House on UKCampsite, I phoned & was greeted by Jane who was so helpful & Jane sited us on a pitch fairly close to the amenities block, we were allocated pitch number three, so on arrival we knew where to pitch our tent.

Soon after our arrival Jane came over the welcome us, checking if we were OK & said she was in the house if we needed anything.

We have been campers for many years, we had camped in the area some years ago, so we had already visited many of the attractions in the area, we choose this area for its beauty & for a restful few days,

The site was wonderful, really nice and quite & we were also blessed by wonderful weather the sun shone every day, in fact some days it was a bit too hot.

I must thank Jane & Martin, for a well-kept site, keep up the good work, I am sure many campers will enjoy your site;

I will certainly recommend High Town House to my family & friends. We hope that we can return in the future.

Brian & Martina – Tonbridge, Kent.
