So lovely and relaxed. Beautiful site. Such lovely owner. Good facilities and great setting. Thank you Alan!

The site could do with more than two swings for the kids but this is not a criticism at all. The kids loved it!

Loved the campsite. It was so relaxed. Staff were very friendly.

Loved that you could have campfires. It has a well stocked shop on site.

Choose you own pitch too.

Very good site not too large so the children can roam safely.


Enjoyed pond dipping in the river and the relaxed atmosphere.

Definitely going again and would recommend.

Had a great time.

A brilliant site; thereís not many sites that you can visit where there is such a relaxed atmosphere!

Proper camp fires allowed, pitch where you want with no size restrictions, decent shower bloke (got a bit grubby at the end of the day but thatís to be expected with peak season I guess), friendly staff who really engage with the kids.

They even get the kids involved with a glow stick grab on a Wednesday and Saturday night, something so simple but hearing the kids getting excited about how many glow sticks they picked up was brilliant.

Lovely friendly campsite. Enjoyed a campfire under the stars, & trees offering some shade I when needed.

Only thing Iíd like to see improve was the cleanliness of the toilets.

At busy times think they need a bit more attention. Otherwise wonderful experience & would recommend.

Reviewer: Msimmons 1 review from this member

Nice site, lively with families, teens and people wide awake until early hours. Although itís a relaxed site, there are little boundaries.

Children playing in swings until midnight, teens around the site and wondering around your pitch causing some unsocial me behaviours. It could do with someone reminding campers of camp etiquette, or closing play areas after 10pm for the children whos parents leave their kids to fend for themselves to all hours

Litter around the place so it could do with having more bins!

Toilet and shower floors pretty dirty. I imagine itís hard to keep up the cleanliness of the small amount of showers and toilets they have during the busy seasons as traffic flow was constant and a fair bit of waiting to use them. There is not enough of them sadly, Could do with more showers and toilets.

Only found one drinking water tap, so could do with another.

Bin area was pretty grubby and a eyesore. This could do with being fenced away.

Friendly manager.

Easy to book in.

Nice shop and seating area around the shop outside.

Nice location easy to find

Nice leafy shaded areas

Good access for our campervan

The children on the site liked the free glow sticks and had fun running around with them.

We would go back, maybe not in school holidays though!

Reviewer: Kajclk 1 review from this member

We stayed with a group, really enjoyed ourselves, would give a 5*, however, the cleanliness of the shower, toilet blocks and washing up facilities could do with regular upkeep.

With such a busy campsite this needs to be cleaned every hour as the build up gets too much. The floors were always wet and dirty and the cubicles were covered in spider webs and spiders.

The shop is nicely stocked, although this could also do with a clean from webs etc.

As previously stated we would have rated 5* as everything else was lovely.

Reviewer: Rodney549og 1 review from this member

Lovely site with lots of trees and stream.

Very informal camping with fires made directly on the grass.

Toilets and showers are ok, freezer and fridge for ice blocks.

Microwave toaster kettle on site and shop has good variety of drinks (especially for adults ) and limited fresh meats for BBQ.

The facilities are nice, and location is good. Reception is friendly and efficient. Views across the river Deben are lovely.

Biggest downside though is noise. It is near the A12 and traffic noise is noticeable. This is not the biggest problem though.

The music noise from other campers until quite late is a bit offputting, two duelling sound systems late at night does not make for a relaxing stay in a family campsite.

Children shrieking at 7 AM is not nice either. Shame, otherwise a nice place to stay.

A fantastic welcome from Alan and his team.

All the facilities you really need plus a fabulously well stocked fridge.

It's great that you can set fires on the ground for your own marshmallows or sausages too.
