Reviewer: RIMMER 183 reviews from this member

 Great location being just off the main road and five or so minute walk into the town which has everything you'd need, best of all being the brew pub Green Dragon with its own Green Dragon beers, buses can be caught from the town to as far as Norwich though we just settled for a bus ride to Beccles. The site is very secluded and quiet with a nice riverside walk so don't be put off by the rather shabby entrance. The only negative is the basic shower/toilet block though perfectly functional. Paid a very reasonable 18/night.

 Perfect site for us as lightweight campers travelling by bikes with small'ish tent etc carried in bike trailer. Flat, well drained site - we survived an overhead thunderstorm with no flooding:) Good clean facilities and very professional owners who immediately made us welcome & invited us to move a picnic table closer to our pitch. Extremely reasonable rates.

15 minute walk into Bungay for local shops, wonderful Fisher theatre & bus services.

 Just spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The situation of the site is perfect, a 5 minute walk into town, and right alongside the river for launching canoes. We stayed on one one of the fields down by the river and the area is not divided up into individual pitches but you pick your own space and there are plenty of electric points.

There are picnic tables all over the site which you can carry to your pitch if you want to, and the site has a very laid-back feel to it.

The shower and toilet facilities are clean but with only 2 of each I guess they would be a little busy at certain times. The only little gripe I have is the charge of 20p to use hot water for washing-up.

The owners are very friendly and we would certainly return.

 Cannot fault this site at all. My husband and I and our 2 small dogs spent 2 nights here and will definitely be returning. The site is clean and well kept.

The people that greeted us at reception were warm and friendly.

It was lovely to hear the children (and some adults) having fun on the rope swing into the river.

All round laid back and beautiful site.

 A lovely friendly site on the edge of Bungay.

The site is easy to find with good access off the A143. Don't be put off by the entrance area where you pull up to book in. A number of old static caravans and a rusty tractor are a bit off putting but the rest of the site is clean and tidy.

Reception was friendly and they gave us a great map of a cycle route to Beccles (about 8 miles) along quiet back lanes and past a couple of lovely pubs (the Locks Inn and the Wherry both at Geldeston). Various Suffolk websites have other routes, all using quiet back lanes and with no hills to speak of, cycling is easy, safe and enjoyable in that wonderful Suffolk countryside.

22 per night is a fair price for spacious flat pitches and we were on a concrete base too which made it perfectly flat. The toilet block is dated but clean and well maintained.

The site is very dog friendly (as is most of Bungay) and the open common behind the site is lovely for a walk. The River Waveney comes around the back of the site and kids can swim in there or you can hire canoes.

Best of all, the Green Dragon pub is 200yds walk into town across the main road. Again, don't be put off by the factory on the roundabout, Bungay is an attractive little town with numerous pubs, shops and cafes. We found the Fleece and the Chequers welcoming and friendly but if you like beer, the Green Dragon is a great little boozer. Unspoilt with its own brewery, they do an excellent bitter at 2. 70 a pint and the marvelous 'gold' at 2. 80.

We will be back!

 May Bank Holiday Stay, 4 nights.

We had been looking forward to this visit for some months as our first proper outing of the year. We were not disappointed. We wanted a riverside campsite, ideally for swimming and canoeing. This delivered perfectly on those ideals. There is even a rope swing over the river.

The pitch was flat and level and the toilet block wasn't far to walk either. It was regularly cleaned and we had no issues with it or the showers.

The village is only a short walk, don't be put off by the 'hill' we drove in on the first night after it being described as such but were ashamed of ourselves. Its an easy walk with plenty of shops.

We were a group of 3 (1 large tent and 2 tourers) with adults and one teenager, the proximity to the river was why we chose this site, I imagine with a few toddlers it may not be ideal, but it was exactly what we were looking for.

The owners/managers were lovely, I don't think I saw the chap on his bike stop smiling once the whole time we were there.

We'll definitely go back as riverside gems like this are rare.

 Chose this site because we wanted to explore Bungay with our Friends and it's location meant we could easily walk into the town. It was also next to Outney common which had some lovely walks.

This is a lovely friendly site and nothing is too much trouble. We were shown to our spacious pitch and had our friends in their motorhome next to us.

The toilet and shower block, as previously stated, is small and dated but had been recently painted and was always clean. I do think this would get very busy in high season.

The fee of 18 including electric is fair but only because of the position of the site.

We had 2 lovely meals in The fleece but you need to book for a Saturday night. Bungay is a very interesting town and even has it's own theatre.

We will probably stay here again.

 Stayed Sat - Tues at start of Oct half term 14 night, 4 ehu (which we think is a bit steep). Lovely site but bit too muddy at this time of year, we were put on field that was quite shadey and didn't get the daytime sun, which probably didn't help the ground to dry.

Only one toilet/shower block that only had 2 showers in ladies, this would of been totally inadequate in the summer as it looked like there were a lot of tent pitches.

Short walk into Bungay passing The Green Dragon pub which brews it's own beer, can recommend The Suffolk Stonehouse restaurant near the church in town where we had a meal on the Saturday night.

We had a good 7 mile run around the common and into the woods plus into Earsham, we also put our inflatable kayak onto the river for a good couple of hours on the Sunday as it was a lovely day, access is direct from the site. The area is lovely and the common is great for walking. There is a golf course next door.

The warden was a very nice helpful guy who made time to chat about the area.

The 'A' road just outside the site and the nearby 'Clays' factory do mean that there is a lot of background noise but in a caravan this wasn't an issue.

For location, acccess to town and ease of outside persuits I think this site is great and would return again.

 A lovely site that over the years has maintained its high standard. Pitches are divided into fields with high hedges so looks smaller than it is. Only one toilet/ shower block but saying that we did not have to wait. Canoe hire available on site and is a nice trip, duration of hire variable. Small shop on site but mainly sells gas and spare parts although ice cream available. Bungay is a 10 minute walk and offers shops, banks and nice pubs. A lovely site just to sit back and relax or use as a base for touring the surrounding area.

 What a lovely site! Don't be put off by the scruffy caravans seen from the roundabout at the entrance - who wants to camp on a busy roundabout? The 3 fields behind are flat, grassy and well kept. We were in the field without children, but the children in the other 2 fields seemed to be having a lovely time without disturbing us. Colin and Mary-Jane met us and sorted out our gas even though we'd arrived after reception had officially closed. Mary-Jane cycled in front to show us to our pitch. We had opted to try without electric hook up (first trip out in our new-to-us van conversion), but were able to hook up for the last day after our leisure batteries ran out. There are 2 toilet blocks, one with a family shower room (open shower once locked in) in one of the ladies. Clean and basic showers, recycling facilities at the bins and a raised grey water drain, so some way of transporting grey waste is necessary. The shop on site is limited, but Bungay has lots of small independent shops and a lovely Real Ale Pub called the Green Dragon, which has a popular beer garden. Lots of places for walking - Outney Common is next to the site - and we saw people hiring bikes and canoes. All in all a very pleasant 3 night stay.
