We only stayed one night as we were cycle touring with our tandem, but would love to stay for longer!

Great site - beautiful spot, very spacious, plenty of room to choose a pitch, very relaxed feel. Just for tents which suits us. Cars are parked in one place, so it was really tranquil. Lots of birds including nesting jackdaws. Heard a cuckoo in the morning too, lovely. No road noise or anything like that, a real getaway.

Toilet and shower block - wow. My husband described them as 'like a hotel' and that is accurate - excellent powerful shower with push button that lasted for a good while, big cubicles and plenty of hooks on the back of the door, very clean while we were there over the bank holiday. Also liked the thoughtful touches with hot water bottles and blankets you could borrow.

Didn't check out the shop but Newbourne itself has roadside stalls for fresh fruit and veg which was handy for us. The Fox pub served very good food.

Highly recommended.

An excellent campsite with a mixture of open grass fields and shaded woodland - approx. A 70%-30% split. The site is run by Jen and Larry who were always very helpful and friendly, as were their pet labrador and cat. The site is very much managed in a trusting and non-invasive manner, which made for a relaxing atmosphere and a nice change from having a list of rules to digest as at other sites. The pitches are large and undefined and there was no sense of overcrowding even when it filled up at the weekend. Fire pits and BBQs were available to use at no extra cost, as were spare blankets if required when the nights turned chilly.

The facilities were very good with showers, toilets and washing-up areas being spotless. A small hut on-site served as an information hub and provided details of countless walks in the area. Also available was a small shop that stocked a wide range of essentials from freshly laid eggs & milk, to marshmallows & beer/wine (essential companions for the fire pits). The site is well positioned to explore Suffolk and we particularly enjoyed the coastal fringe, while Felixstowe provided a typical British seaside resort setting.

We have camped here quite a few times. It's is by far the best campsite ever. The facilities are superb and the shower/toilet block need to be seen to be believed. Blankets and sleeping bags available as well as hot water bottles if you need them. Insect repellent and various creams are in the shower block if you need them. Fire pits and chimneas and bbqs all

There for you to use. The beautiful elephant barn with fridge and freezer and phone charging point. Owners Jen and Larry are so friendly, along with the gorgeous Scooby.

Camping is either in the Christmas trees or on the open field. An information hut is full of stuff for you to use. Maps and walks and books.

We now have a caravan and as they only have tents we won't be able to return. Although I am sooooo tempted to just buy a little tent to tuck in the boot of the car.

What a lovely site and in a beautiful area too. I was touring by motorcycle and stayed for 1 night but would definitely consider staying for longer if I came again. On arrival I was given a very friendly welcome and told to choose my own pitch. The toilets and wash facilities are very modern and are kept spotlessly clean. This is an idyllic, peaceful location with a pretty village nearby and a pub with great atmosphere serving excellent food. I would definitely stay here again if I was visiting this part of the country.

I don't often give 9/10 for a camp site, even really good ones normally get an 8. But this is unique.

The site is fantastical located for exploring Suffolk and the site itself is located in a quiet valley with a good choice of pitches and a couple of characterful cabins. We chose to pitch in the field.

The pitches themselves are not limited to the size of tent only by the spaces in the woods or the field, they are generally flat and seem well drained (dry during our stay). The facilities are lovely; great showers nice decor, plenty of hot water and clean. There are great touches such as insect repellent in the toilet block, fresh salad and eggs for sale (proceeds going to charity). An information hut, free fire pits and bbqs so you just pay for what you use. There is also a communal covered area with a fire and BBQ you can you and the free to use fridges, freezer and phone charging points. Although there is very little phone signal and no wifi, what a blessing.

Jen is really lovely, but her presents is low key and the site is run on trust.

The local pub, the fox, is very walkable across the fields (20mins) and is good value and the food is reasonable, the sister pub, the maybush, also quite walkable (40mins) and has lovely views. There are lots of great walks in the area and it was fab for the dog.

We had the most relaxing time and limiting groups, only tents, plus adults only made it very friendly.

The only observations I do have is that the grass wasn't collected when it was cut so in the mornings it stuck to your shoes and trailed in to the toilet block. Also there were no hooks by the basins to hang your shirt when shaving. But these are simple things and we will be going back and telling friends.

The site I ideal if you want to get away from it and chill so may not be for everybody.

WOW what a great site

We came for a 3 night stay and wished we could stay longer, anyway the campsite is first class the best toilets and showers we have seen EVER on a site, you can choose your pitch in the field or in the woods and then pitch your tent go borrow 1 of their barbecues and a fire pit, if your cold at night they have clean blankets and sleeping bags if you need them(clean&fresh) shower gel in the toilets, soap as well, washing up liquid at the basins, they have thought of everything.

And just a mile from the site is a great pub with good service and reasonable prices the beach at Felixstowe is only 6. 9 miles away

Tesco extra 4miles away

And the site has printed out a load of walks with a map for your dog or if you want to visit all the little pubs around then there are maps for that as well

All in all the best site we have been to and we would recommend it to couples who like peace and quiet who like camping but like their luxuries.
