Unfortunately we didn’t see the owner or any other members of staff for that matter for the whole of our stay.

The toilets/ showers were not cleaned at all during our stay.

Definitely wouldn’t recommend and we won’t be returning.

We thoroughly enjoyed camping here.

Very clean facilities and peaceful and quiet. Lovely for stargazing at night and close to a pub.

Easy drives to Aldeburgh and southwold. Thank you very much

Pleasant site for adults only within walking distance of the village. Not much in the village apart from a pub (the Theberton Lion) and although it's not far, you have to walk on the road for a short distance as there are no pavements near the campsite (probably best to take a torch if coming back in the dark - as much for the oncoming traffic to see you as for you to see where you're going).

Site is clean and tidy - not manned (we didn't see the owners - you leave your payment in an envelope in the letterbox). There's only one loo and one shower each for both men and women and that must be a problem when the site is busy (there were only 5 other pitches taken and I had to wait for both shower and loo on occasion). They are very clean though and lit at night.

The site is quiet (a bit of road noise but this dies down after about 10pm). Pitches are large and all have electric - they are mostly separated by small hedges for a bit of extra privacy.

It's handy for Minsmere and not far to the sea from there. The pub in the village did some nice food and real ales and the people who ran it were friendly. I thought it was a nice site but more for those who want to drive rather than walk from the site (not many off-road public footpaths around there), but definitely good for a few nights.

Just back from a wonderful 3 night stay at Sycamore Park, a very quiet site for adults only, 20 large pitches, very clean and dog friendly.

A great place to make your base all local towns/beaches within easy access from this site.

We will definitely be visiting again.

Thank you

Great little site. Very clean well kept grounds. Very clean shower block but only one shower for ladies and one for men. So could be a queue when site full.

Will definitely go again.

Well done Sycamore Park.

Just returned home after 8 nights at this 20 pitch campsite. It is beautifully kept and modern, the showers (only two, one male, one female) and toilets (only two - one male, one female) were immaculate.

Although in the ladies shower the shower tray was rather slippery and the shower head sprayed onto the floor where you get dried and dressed, but this could be remedied by changing the direction of the shower head, but it was much too high for me to reach and it didn't look as if it could be moved anyway. The press button control only gave about 10 seconds of water. Which was lovely and hot. I did have to queue for both the toilet and the shower on a couple of occasions.

I am amazed that people say the pitches are large. We were on number 6 and it was small, and all the pitches looked the same size. We had our car, caravan and only a porch awning and we literally had to squeeze past the car to get passed the car to the caravan door; when we went out my husband had to move the car out to allow me to get into the passenger seat! There would have been no room at all to put an annexe onto the awning if we had needed to.

Location is good with lots of local attractions, and Sizewell Beach just down the road is quiet (but not on Bank Holiday Monday!). Loved the huge Sycamore Tree lit up at night!

We were also concerned about the lack of security, the site is not manned and has no gate, on one occasion a car entered the site drove right round the site and then left. People not actually camping should not be able to do this!

Sadly mainly because of the size of the pitches we wouldn't visit again.

We’ve visited Sycamore Park several times over the past five years. On each visit we’ve been greatly impressed by the campsite and its facilities.

We’d highly recommend it to anyone - like ourselves - who is planning to visit RSPB Minsmere.

Reviewer: Ouncy2 25 reviews from this member

Stayed a week on this very good site which could be excellent if only some attention to detail was used. No one on site when we arrived and pitching details were left in an envelope for new arrivals.

During our stay, the office was only open on one occasion when the book keeper used it. We never saw the owners even when I rang to inform them that there was no paper in either M & F toilets. I think it is fair to say the toilets/showers were not cleaned by the owners for 5 days and in that time it was left to the site users to keep them clean fortunately the site was only part filled.

My main concern was that of security as there is no one resident on site and no security barrier or gate. On the last day of our visit two men arrived to mow the grass but did not say if either of them were the owners or just workers.

The site could be so much more user friendly with a bit more thought & inter action but at £15 per night for the grass pitches it is still good value.

Little to add to other good reviews on here. Booking process worked well and we never met the owner which is fine for us.

For some reason the free Wifi wasn't working, but not a problem for us.

Just to say that this is no longer an all grass site.

Numbers 16 to 20 are now gravel and cost £20 per night rather than £15 and this isn't mentioned on the website, however they informed us by email.

We chose gravel as one can never trust the weather and Motorhomes can get stuck in the wet.

We were there during a heatwave but still pleased we chose one of those because they are the best area to benefit from the shade from the sun given by the tall trees

Recently returned from 7 nights at this site. It was our first visit to Suffolk and was the perfect base for a week of exploration. Unlike many other sites it is accessed directly from the main road in and out of Leiston so no scary approaches on single track roads which we often encounter on our travels! Although we didn't meet her the site owner Samantha is well organised with pitch and payment details ready and waiting at reception on arrival.

Pitches are generous with shrubs between different areas adding a degree of privacy. Having the caravan we didn't need to use the site's washing or toilet facilities but a quick look showed them to be modern and spotlessly clean.

We visited the main seaside towns of Aldburgh and Southwold, as well as Dunwich, Sizewell and Sutton Hoo with its excellent historical centre. A little further took us to Flatford to view many of artist John Constable's haunts and inspiration for his paintings.

A great base for a very pleasant week's holiday.
