Brick Kiln Campsite: Around the site

General

  • Peaceful adults-only site with dogs allowed
  • A 15-minute drive from Framlingham and 30 minutes from Ipswich
  • Shared kitchen, indoor seating, honesty shop; firepits 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 (other than birdsong, of course) rule should ensure that reading hours and slumbers go undisturbed.

Eats are easily sorted without leaving this placid paradise: every pitch has a firepit, and barbecues can be hired on site for more traditional meals. 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.

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

Thank you so much for your kind review. I am glad you liked the flat pitches and amenities. Covid or no covid - I am going to continue to ensure that the shower block is always kept to a high standard of cleanliness. I look forward to welcoming you back next season.....

  • Liked: 

    The individual fire pits were a real hit with us. So lovely in the evening to sit beside with a glass of wine.
    The site and owner were welcoming. The whole site was clean, peaceful and relaxing, and close to popular locations such as Snape and Aldeburgh. We will come again.

    Disliked: 

    There was nothing we disliked apart from maybe the signage to the site, easily missed!

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely review; whilst I am not a camper, I do particularly love walking around the site in the evening and seeing all the camp fires and absorbing the happy and peaceful atmosphere. Campsea Ashe is a perfect location to explore from and with easy access to the A12, it is a good spot for all the various popular places. Do you know, this year I don't think I received one phone call from anyone saying they were lost!! Usually every other call is from someone saying they can't find me....but I will take on board what you say about the signage and ensure that that the signs are clear for next season. Thank you for your comments. See you next season I hope!

  • Liked: 

    The facilities and cleanliness of showers, washing up area and the setting. Walking distance to a great pub too. The Duck

    Disliked: 

    A little close on the 1st night to other vans but 2nd night was in a better position

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your kind review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay here. Walking to the pub is always popular for everyone! Whilst I consider 10.8 metre pitches a 'good size', I do agree that you only need one person to pitch/park in the wrong place, to upset the entire site pitching! I think this year has been one of the most challenging years for ensuring that people keep within their pitch allocation so I am going to think of a better system for next year. I am glad you were able to move to a better position on the 2nd night. Hope to see you again!

Small, quiet, cosy site with clean facilities.14/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomDavid J.Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Small site with clean and well kept facilities. Each pitch has its own fire pit which was marvellous as it got dark and little fires were going around the site with gentle chatter.
    The local pub is friendly with good food and is a pleasant stroll away.
    Location is good for reaching the seaside towns and a stroll on the beach.

    Disliked: 

    Shower slots were taken fast, leaving none for us in the entire morning up to checkout time which having paid to stay and use the facilities was a little annoying.

From the manager...

The 'disliked' bit first! I am SO sorry that you were unable to get a shower before checkout. Checkout is really really flexible and only a guide time - between 11 and 12 - and if you want to stay on - you only have to text, phone or ask me when you see me. It is generally no problem at all. You would have been so welcome to stay to use the showers later on in the day - it would not have worried me at all. I am very sorry about this. The shower allocation however, is working well overall and I plan to continue into next season, it although I will be making further amendments to it. I will certainly be taking your comments on board which I think are fair. Perhaps those who are not leaving will be asked to book their showers later on in the day whilst offering the 'prime time' to those who are checking out. I am sorry if this had a negative impact on your stay. However, I am pleased that you enjoyed the facilities and the fire pits. They are special, aren't they? And it's so therapeutic to be able to enjoy the quietness of the site and 'gentle chatter' as you have described so well. I do hope you will visit again and I look forward to welcoming you back.

Directions

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)
