Brick Kiln Campsite: stunning sunsets...

General

  • Peaceful adults-only site with a no-music/TV rule; dogs allowed
  • A 15-minute drive from Framlingham and 20 minutes from Aldeburgh
  • Shared kitchen, indoor seating and honesty shop; firepit on each pitch

No one could blame you for wanting a break from the kids, whether they’re your own or just the neighbourhood ones getting underfoot… If that calming escape is calling then make your way to Brick Kiln Campsite, an adults-only site less than five minutes’ drive from the small Suffolk village of Campsea Ashe.

In a rural spot, there’s little around this quiet spot but fields. The site’s not set up for electric – though plugs for charging phones can be accessed if going without is a problem – so the outside world may struggle to intrude, and a no-music rule (other than birdsong, of course) should ensure that reading hours and slumbers go undisturbed.

Eats are easily sorted without leaving this placid paradise: every pitch has a firepit, and there's a communal barbecue where you can cook up more traditional meals (disposable barbecues are also for sale here). Damper hours can be spent in the converted stable, with its shared kitchen and small honesty shop, and when cooking is to be avoided altogether it’s a 10-minute walk across fields to the nearest pub serving food. There's also a reading room with a book exchange and games to keep you entertained.

For forays off site, it’s less than 10 minutes' drive to Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – where wildlife spotting, leisurely wanders and seaside strolls are all to be had – and five minutes to the nearest golf course for those who find peace on the tees.

Please note

Owing to government regulations, groups of 6 or more people are not permitted.

This is a quiet site: no music is allowed.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

Reception is unmanned after 8 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

    Literally everything - wonderful bathroom facilities (sent photos to family and friends; they asked if I was staying in a chateau), lovely outdoor dining/hangout area, lovely honesty shop and fridge/washing up provision. For a smallish site it has loads of thoughtful extras that made our stay so much more relaxing: toaster, kettle, device charging points, FULL-ON ACTUAL, PHYSICAL CROCKERY CUPBOARD!!!
    Have I mentioned the firepits yet? Or the completely flat pitches? Or the quiet? Or the lovely walk to the village shop? Or thd delightful summer-house style reading room? If all campsites were like this, no one would live in a house. The owners were super-friendly, very approachable and wonderful hosts.
    The local birdlife was constantly entertaining, we saw a heron as we were pitching up.
    Also, sausage dogs. Everywhere. I met one called Kevin.

    Disliked: 

    Leaving. On my first morning I saw a lady practically howl with the injustice of having to leave and go back home. Madam, I am with you all the way.

    Brick kiln farm is a gem. Well managed with spotless facilities. The pitches leave plenty of space between campers and are level. with everything you might need for a calm and relaxing stay . There is a gastro pub within 20 mins walk. The food was delicious . Each pitch had a fire pit . The owners put so much care and thought into this site, it is a delight to stay at .

    Just about everything was really great. This is an adults only quite site with no music allowed which suited us perfectly. The pitches are quite large and well kept. When we stayed it wasn't busy and so lots of privacy with plenty of space between pitches. The facilities are really good with three hot showers and lovely clean toilets and vanity areas with hair dryers etc. There is a well stocked honesty shop communal covered seating and bbq area. Also a microwave and good sized Fridge, instant hot and cold water and sinks for washing up. A special word about the hosts who are both just lovely. They are attentive to your needs but not in your face all the time. In fact the atmosphere on site is friendly and easy going.
    We will definitely be staying again.

    What didn’t I like?!? It was perfect. Peaceful (I LOVED the no-music, adult only ambiance), great amenities (like a really well-considered, rustic hostel), clean, well organised, the people who ran it were lovely, accommodating and friendly… beautiful countryside. And we opened our tent Saturday morning to see a mobile coffee van. Heaven.

Local attractions

Explores of this area are a cinch for pedallers: a trip to nearby Rendlesham (a 10-minute drive) should sort wheels, and the rental place even delivers to site. Once a ride is secured, head along to Rendlesham Forest, a 15-minute drive or 25-minute cycle away, to zip along bike paths through the 1,500-hectare woodland.

There’s plenty of history hereabouts to dive into too. The site’s 15 minutes from Framlingham Castle and the Anglo-Saxon king’s ship burial ground at Sutton Hoo, 35 minutes from the stunning famed Victorian pier in Southwold, and 45 minutes from Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum. Even closer at hand, it’s less than five minutes to Marlesford Mills Antiques Centre, if bargain hunting's your bag.

On warmer days, make tracks for the seaside. The nearest shingle beach is at Aldeburgh, and it’s 35 minutes to the sandy, pebbled stretch at Southwold (stick around here for brewery and distillery tours, and an excellent pier). For a proper sandy beach though, Lowestoft is a must – it’s 50 minutes from base by car, or an hour on the train from the station five minutes’ drive from the site.

Those seeking days among museums, shops, galleries and restaurants should take those tracks in the direction of Ipswich instead, half an hour’s train journey or car ride away.

Must see

  • Framlingham Castle (4.9 miles)
  • Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon Burial Mounds (5.1 miles)
  • Orford Castle (7.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Sutton Hoo (5.1 miles)
  • Orford Ness National Nature Reserve (7.6 miles)
