  • On the banks of the River Stour in Dedham Vale
  • Ideal for boaters and canoeists
  • Very quiet site with friendly family atmosphere

Sssh – you'll want to sit quietly and drink in the serenity of this site and its surroundings on the river in Dedham Vale.

Rushbanks Farm Campsite is a peaceful little site in the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and since opening in 1962 has been a firm favourite with campers in all seasons who like to combine pitching up with mucking around in boats. (Owner Gareth Bates is a member of the River Stour Trust and reckons this is the quietest and most scenic part of the river.)

Watery options from Rushbanks include launching your own craft from one of the stages nearby, paddling upstream to the local, the Anchor pub at Nayland, paddling downstream to Bures, or sailing among the swans on a guided River Stour boat trip. All before settling down to a riverside view and sizzling up dinner over the campfire...

The area is also part of Constable country, the Suffolk paths and fields trodden by painter John Constable, and the whole of Dedham Vale is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A footpath crosses the farm and acres of artistically scenic walks are nearby.

The well-kept facilities on site include warm showers, ladies' and gents' loos, water tap, chemical disposal and a washing-up area. A track and play area was added for the 2016 season.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome and stay at the farm for free.
