We are a small, family-run, quiet, relaxed, rural site with 30 pitches for caravans, campervans and tents: 20 with electricity and 10 without. The site is located behind the old nineteenth century village school and is grassy, well drained, flat, spacious and very quiet. We are situated at the edge of a small village in a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty with forest, river, heathland and coastal trails nearby. There is an abundance of wildlife around the site including owls, woodpeckers, nightingales, rabbits, deer, squirrels and foxes. We are family and pet friendly and welcome dogs as long as they are kept on a secure lead while on the site. Our site is ideal for simple, relaxing family holidays.

Newly refurbished hot showers, hot water to basins, flush toilets, covered dish-washing areas, septic emptying point. There is also a fridge/freezer available for campers to use at reception. We also sell Calor camping gas. If you would like to have an open fire at your pitch we hire our fire pits and sell wood (or you can bring your own). We also hire out picnic tables.

The Sorrel Horse community-owned pub is 150 m away and serves lunch and evening meals. The pub can be accessed via a path directly from the site. There is also a children’s playground which can be accessed directly from the site. We are 2 miles from the River Deben, 3.5 miles from the sea (Shingle Street) and 4 miles from a sandy beach (Bawdsey). It is a very good walking and cycling area and there are trails directly accessed from the site. We sell a local footpath map at reception

Our Small Holding & Produce
We are in the process of establishing an organic small holding. We currently have about 40 very free-range chickens (you will see them running around the site) and we grow lots of vegetables and fruit. We are planning to get some bees, ducks, turkeys, pigs, goats and sheep in the next year or so. We sell some of our own organic fruit and vegetables as well as home made jams, jellies & chutneys that we make from our own produce. We also sell multi-coloured eggs from our gorgeous chickens.

Green Policy
We manage our site in an enviromentally-fiendly, organic ‘green’ way. We have just installed a solar-powered photo-voltaic array so all our electricity is from a renewable source. We also use Ecover and other ‘green’ products to clean the toilets as well as 100% recycled toilet paper. Wherever possible we reuse and recycle - we have recycling facilities for glass, cardboard, paper, tins, plastic etc on the site. We also grow and sell our own organic fruit and vegetables and have a small flock of mixed rare breed, very free range chickens.
