 Nice welcome as we arrived on site (although there was a bit of a mix up caused by the booking agents) and we were shown to our pitch.

The site is small, but is very well kept. We couldn't use the showers/toilets due to Covid19, so I can't remark on those. There looked to be good laundry facilities though, and the site has an elsan disposal point. No shop or eating place on site, although there is a pub next door, that serves food (not tried it though)

The site is very family and dog friendly, and due to a couple of groups of families, it was a wee bit noisy for us. Having said that though, it's not a complaint, just that if you want a quiet getaway it might be best to go elsewhere. The children were all having a whale of a time, though, and there is a play area on site.

The pitches are spacious, flat, and all are equipped with hookups. The water taps aren't far away.

All in all, a lovely little site, out in the countryside, but not too far from nearby towns and villages

 Like others we booked this site without seeing it and when we got here like others we thought o dear. There`s not much room for many more units as seasonal and full time residents fill it up however the owner took us in moved his motorhome and we had a site.

We did not use the facilities but the pub toilets were fine so we thought the others would be too.

Like others we ate at the pub and found the food really good and we thought good value, owners and staff very friendly and made us very welcome but beware if you go over late they close if no one in the pub.

To sum up not perhaps the venue for a week break or for kids but if you want a friendly place for a couple of nights its worth a try and I found the fishing great the lake is full of carp of all sizes. We would go again for a short visit and the pub is worth a visit just to eat.

 Arrived At The Odd House to book in and was told 'take your pick, have which pitch you want', thought this was brilliant, drove through the gates to the site and thought Oh my God what have we booked into.

The site was made of seasonal and residentials, which was fine but the pitch that was left for us to park on was like a quagmire, thankfully the residents helped us to park up in the mud (Hard Standing).

The residents were more than helpful.

Now the Pub, well I couldn't find two bad words to say about the Odd House, we were made very welcome, the food was out of this world and the staff bent over backwards to help you, I notice somebody said food was over priced. Well it certainly wasn't.

Would I go there again only if somebody tidies the site up a little. Oh and if you want to boil a kettle turn everything off in the van electrical so that you just have the kettle drawing electric.

Reviewer: Bellmactom 1 review from this member

 Chosen as a last minute night away in a 2 man tent we literally called 2hrs before arriving.

A small field with a fishing lake in the middle, the majority of pitches are taken up by permanent residents. Initially we were met by quite a miserable resident who was very concerned we might pitch too near him, we didn't. However the residents we did pitch near were lovely people, as were everyone else we met.

The fishing lake seems to be stocked with lots of small carp and some ornamental goldfish, but we enjoyed it. There was a competition on the Sunday which was won with 15lb.

When we went to the pub we were met by the landlady, who was absolutely lovely, nothing was too much trouble. We booked in to the restaurant, ordered our food while in the bar, where we stayed having a drink until we were told our starters were ready, and were taken through to our table. I have read a review on here which says the food was over priced, I think you get what you pay for and our meals were excellent, worth every penny ( I had the lamb tower and my wife had the chicken with haggis, both of which I would have again).

The service was excellent, the atmosphere friendly and the facilities clean and functional.

We will be using this site again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

 Stayed here for one night as it's fairly local, to try out our new tent. The site's fairly small with mainly permanent caravan units but everyone was friendly. There's a small fishing pond in the middle with very noisy ducks at night! This means there's not a great deal of field space for children to play.

The pub is great though and really child-friendly. Full of toys and a great outdoor play area, my toddler had a ball. The owners even let my son borrow a toy which we then returned the next day. The food was also great.

The camping toilets were clean and the shower looked OK but we didn't use it. The site was really quiet at night (except for the ducks!) and we didn't notice much road noise.

Went to visit the Battlefield Train Line for a day out with Thomas the Tank Engine which is just a few miles up the road, a big hit with my son! All in all, a great couple of days.

Reviewer: Hopkins 1 review from this member

 I was arranging a get together for a group of old friends, some with young families: a total of 8 adults and 5 young children. This camp site was chosen on the basis of some rather tight criteria:

- it needed to be located pretty much in the middle of Newcastle, Ipswich and London

- there needed to be the option of B&B accommodation, potentially at the last minute

- a family friendly restaurant should be on-hand for breakfast and perhaps other meals, especially given the time of year and proportion of children

- a children's play area would be nice but not essential

There really is not a lot to choose from to match all of these criteria, the killer usually being a place with enough B&B accommodation to make it unlikely that it would be fully booked! However, this place matched everything, including the children's play area (albeit located on the other side of the main building, so not accessible directly from the camp site).

With the exception of the other review here, I had only found fairly negative reviews on the internet, but also they were quite a few years old. It turns out that the place changed hands three years ago after having been neglected, and the new owners have apparently been working hard to change things - everything certainly seemed to be in good condition.

Being the only people arriving on Friday, my family and I stayed in the B&B for the first night and on the camp site for the second. The B&B was great value for money. There are around a dozen recently decorated and kitted out rooms, each with a double and a single bed, and ours was very clean and very cosy. The next night was spent under canvas with the rest of the party (bar one couple with their 18 month old child, who opted for the B&B) and, again, no problems there. I have to say, I didn't notice any traffic noise! The road is a country lane, although most of the time we spent on the site we were busy and chatting away, so it is perhaps not surprising that we were oblivious to the odd car.

Both mornings we had their cooked breakfast, and it was excellent! They had a carvery planned for Sunday which, sadly, we did not stay around to sample. Apparently they have the Food and Drink company visiting them soon based on the growing popularity of their restaurant, so you might want to keep your eyes open for that review.

To wrap it up, and to stop myself from rambling on, I will mention that the owners are very friendly, relaxed and accommodating, and they also seem to know how to store and serve their beer (and this is coming from a real ale fan).

All in all, highly recommended!

 We decided to camp at the site for one night and book a meal in the pub restaurant. We found the owners very friendly and accommodating. However the downside for us was the camping area as it was mainly taken up by permanent camping residents, who called it their home.

The man-made lake is small but there are fish in there so good for fishing I would think. The food is lovely, with a good choice of wines, however a little overpriced for what you received. Unfortunately we wont be returning for camping, but would maybe consider the restaurant.

 Visited this site for a long weekend. The kids loved it, as it had a large fishing pond in the middle of the site which enabled them to do some fishing, giving the adults some free time.

The play area within the pub area was also brilliant for the younger children.

The toilet was clean and not to far away. The food and staff in the pub was brilliant, nothing was to much trouble.

We visited a nearby bird sanctuary which was a brilliant day out highly recommended.

There are shops about a 5 minute drive away including a Tesco's & Co-op in the nearby town.

 Mixed feelings about this one. It's set in a field next to the Odd House Inn. The nearest shop is a short drive about 10 mins. The pub seemed popular but as we had dogs and they were not allowed in pub we found this disappointing as we could not visit it.

The camping and caravanning site was pleasant enough although some traffic noise could be heard from road side pitches. There seemed to be lots of pitches that were for permanent or seasonal use. There is a fishing lake in the centre of the site, a fishermans haven and seemed to be well stocked.

The toilet and shower facilities looked in need of a clean and we did not use them. The pitch was 10 per night and 5 per night for electricity - 15 in total per night I thought was too expensive; In comparison to some nearby campsites that only charge 10 with electric included. We did enjoy the tranquillity of this small site and the owners were friendly and helpful on arrival. Overall I felt it was 'nice' but overpriced for what it offers.
