General

  • Tiny site on a working farm
  • Four miles from Woodbridge
  • Wild camping but with some home comforts

At Greenlay Pastures find a little piece of the English countryside and escape for a while. The site is four miles from the beautiful market town of Woodbridge which sits on the River Deben estuary.

The campsite is located on a working farm in the pretty village of Bredfield. The village has a shop selling local produce. There is also a playing field with tennis courts for hire and a children's play area. All are within a few minutes' walk of the campsite.

The farm provides grazing for sheep and cattle. For many years this was a small organic dairy farm which with its pasture and mature hedgerows provided a haven for plants, birds and animals. Traditions of husbandry have been maintained in recent years so that the essence and beauty of the farm remains. This year the owners are pleased to find patches of wild orchids again on the meadow next to the campsite.

There are a toilet and washroom on site and a separate electric shower. The water tap is located outside the washroom. At Greenlay Pastures the experience is more akin to wild camping: turning up and setting up camp in a meadow close to nature and wildlife. If you prefer wild camping but with some home comforts then this could be the place for you.

    Just back from a 3 day stay. I absolutely adored this campsite; it was exactly what we wanted. The peace was wonderful and the small nature of the place (only 7 or 8 pitches) was perfect. Not at all crowded, even though there was space for many more. Slightly clearer signage needed to prevent a bit of wild goose chasing when we first arrived, but the low-key atmosphere was brilliant. Facilities extremely limited but clean and nicely rustic (in an old outhouse). No hot water except in the morning, and if someone has used it all to do their washing up, then none. I only ever managed slightly warm water but perhaps if you’re there early you might be lucky. Shower basic, but good provisioning of change space and hooks for your stuff. The thermostat was very iffy especially if it had previously been used that morning, perhaps to do with the hot water going off.

    Owners very hands-off, only saw them a couple of times, but they took the time to say hello when I encountered them around the grounds. The enormous fire pits were fabulous, and felt quite safe to use even with our crazy (very young) children running around because they were well marked out with bricks.

    Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a wild camping experience but with some basic amenities. An ideal place to get away from the busyness of life, and listen for owls, foxes and spot dragon flies!

    I felt it could have been improved with a bit of written information on arrival of any nearby shops and supermarkets. Keeping food chilled was naturally a problem, and phone batteries die with no power for charging so finding amenities had to be planned in advance when we were driving to charge the phone. Ditto local refuse facilities & their opening times (the owner very kindly took ours with her personal waste but I don’t think that would be a possibility if you had a lot).

    Disliked: 

    The fields were covered in large thistles and other prickles, which meant exploring them for an evening walk was pretty much out. Loads of space to look at but not use. This was more significant in the first field than the second, where a certain amount of exploration was possible. My kids liked to forage for pine cones and bug hunt, but were hampered by the spiky things which were sometimes taller than them! A few pathways mown through the fields would be lovely. As a family with very young children (6 & 3) I found it difficult to keep them entertained because most of the (large and inviting) space was unusable. I am not suggesting a play park or anything like that to spoil the wildness, however, just a bit more space to run about in, bug hunt or play in that’s not just limited to the pitch.

    If you are looking for a back to nature camping experience. That is the right place! We stayed in a beautiful field covered with buttercups. Lots of birds and beautiful trees surrounding the area.

    A kitchen sink and an extra bathroom would be a welcomed improvement
