Mother and daughter Tina and Sophie welcome you to Brick Kiln. It has been our family home for over 30 years and in the family for three generations.
Brick Kiln is based on the outskirts of Campsea Ashe and Wickham Market. Our accommodation is set in unspoilt, quiet Suffolk countryside with 360-degree views over fields.
The one-acre grass hedged campsite may be off the beaten track, but we are centrally situated and within easy reach of the A12 taking you to famous Suffolk places: Woodbridge, Framlingham, Snape, Aldeburgh and Southwold to name but a few.
Camping wouldn't be camping without a good old campfire where you can toast your marshmallows and share tall tales. Wood and kindling is for sale on site for your convenience and for health and safety reasons.
Our converted stable block has a small kitchen area where you can wash up and have access to a fridge and freezer. Off the kitchen is the creative space where you can gather to play traditional board games, paint, eat, cook on the camp stove or browse our honesty shop.
The block also houses the campsite showers and toilets, with a family shower room.
There is no electrical hook-up here, just some plugs to charge your phones (if you need them) and boil a kettle. We also have a fridge and freezer (an extra charge will applied to plug in larger appliances). There is a gas camping stove available to boil water.
We look forward to welcoming you and hope you have a happy and comfortable stay with us at Brick Kiln.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Brick Kiln Farm is situated in a peaceful location on the edge of the village of Campsea Ashe, near Wickham Market, in Suffolk. We are one mile from the train station (named Wickham Market although it is in the centre of the village of Campsea Ashe). Daily trains run hourly to and from London. Tina would be delighted to organise collection/drop off to the station!
From the A12 south
Take the exit for B1078, then turn right at the top of the slip road. Take the immediate second left after the flyover. We are directly opposite the slip road on to the A12 south.
From the A12 north
Come off the A12 just after the Marlesford Farm Café. At the crossroads turn right and follow the lane to Brick Kiln. Or take the exit for the B1078, and turn right onto the lane next to the slip road, almost like a u-turn. Follow the lane to Brick Kiln.
A 10-minute walk from Brick Kiln Farm will bring you to the well-stocked village shop, and to The Dog and Duck, our local pub. They don’t serve food but if you fancy a tipple head there.
Campsea Ashe is also home to Wickham Market Railway station…confusing we know! But we are about a 15/20 minute walk from the station or a three-minute taxi ride.
Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh, Thorpeness, Woodbridge, cafés, antique centres, Jimmy's Farm, Easton Farm Park, cinema, pubs, restaurants, and Walberswick for crabbing are also all within a short distance.
