 A revisit to a favourite site backing onto the nature reserve with beautiful walks into the back of the rspb lakenheath.

A warm welcome with very reasonable price inclusive of electricity and with very clean toilets and shower.

The ambience slightly spoilt by a new addition of a big metal shipping container destined for conversion in the middle of the site.

Not sure how this will impact the peaceful environment when this begins.

 What a cracking little site one of the best ones we have stayed at in the last month, very friendly owners, everything spotlessly clean just the sort of site we like.

The airbase is nearby and you can see the planes taking off.

An ideal stop off on our way back to Kent, will go there again.

 I canít rate this small hideaway site enough, itís my go to site when in the area.

As a Wildlife photographer itís ideally situated for the Lakenheath reserve which can be reached by a long but pleasant walk from the site.

Although itís a little way out from the village itís only just a short drive back where you will find a Co Op, Fish & Chips, Take Away & a Small Pub to provide everything you need supply wise.

The toilets and Shower are kept scrupulously clean by Kathy who manages the site and who gives everyone a warm welcome, whilst Jim who lives on site keeps the grounds immaculate and is always there for help and likes a chat in the evenings and helps give the site a personal feel.

Having visited several times it is now more like staying with old friends and I look forward to my next visit to catch up with Kathy and Jim again.

I would Thoroughly recommend this site if your a solo traveller.

 A very nice site, good price of £15. 50 pn. Good welcome, loos and showers which are well kept. The trains are infrequent and no bother.

Easy to find, a bit out in the sticks, quiet single track road for the last mile or so, if coming from Mildenhall.

The road from the A11 to Lakenheath was closed at the time of our visit.

Lakenheath is hardly more than a village but has a Co op.

We would use this site again as a stopover.

 I enquiried using the booking form on here and received a prompt reply and was told they have space and to just turn up and someone would come along later in the day to check all was ok and take the payment of £12 for me in my campervan without electric.

I stopped on my way at RAF Lakenheath for lunch and was treated to 6 jets taking off and on practice flights. This was about 10 minutes drive from the site.

Upon arrival I found a spot along the edge and away from the trees so I could get the solar panels in full direct sunlight. There is a toilet, and then a toilet and shower with sink. These were warm, clean and well maintained.

There is a cold water washing up, chemical disposal points, rubbish bins including full recycling and an information hut with fridge, freezer, kettle and a space to shelter should the weather turn grim.

The the children this is a safe quiet site down a lane, so very little passing traffic and loads of space to run and play.

Walking is great from the site and within about 1. 5 miles you are at a nature reserve and I went on a lovely 10 mile walk taking in the variety of birds, butterflies, cattle, etc. There is a visitor centre on the reserve too, but did not go in there.

Plenty to see and do in the area including Ely, Thetford, Mildenhall and so much more. This area is a delight if you like plane spotting and you should be treating to many sightings of military craft.

A nice flat site with welcoming owners and I would return here if back in the area.

Reviewer: Motorhome Hobos 2 reviews from this member

 Quiet, peaceful CS site, off the beaten track along some single lane roads with fields all around and close to Lakenheath RSPB - perfect for birdwatchers. As we are RSPB members, we got £1 off the cost of our overnight stay which came to £12 (without electric hook-up).

We had a lovely view, overlooking a corn field.

There was only 1 other occupied van during our stay so it was very peaceful.

The site has basic but perfectly adequate and clean facilities: a single loo and shower, washing up area, grey and black water disposal, fresh water etc.

Nice welcome from Kathy, the owner, who turned up after we'd already set up (you don't have to go to 'reception' if Kathy isn't about: just choose one of the 5 grass pitches and get set up - though we had obviously booked a pitch in advance and she knew we were coming).

Overall, a nice, simple and quiet site which we would return to if we're in the area.

 Nicely situated and very handy for wildlife photography at Lakenheath Fens and similar, and also for both RAF Lakenheath and Mildenhall if you like your birds to be of the metal variety.

Very nice and peaceful, which is why I keep coming back when I am in the area.

 We loved this little CS. Quiet until the jet fighters fly over but that's part of the attraction for us.

Sugar beet fans will love it. It's surrounded by the stuff

The caretakers are lovely. Kath and her husband, come around to see if all is ok but are not obtrusive.

£14 with electric and facilities can't be bad

Reviewer: Colsan5 6 reviews from this member

 Very quiet and simple site. Very nice owners and extremely peaceful. We were alone for 6 nights. There is a new shower and toilet(summer 2018). Train line not a problem at all and many lovely walks in area and from site. Good cycling especially around Brandon and Thetford. Excellent price £16 a night Inc electric. (£14 if over 60). Excellent shower as stated, washing up facilities for campers basic.
