Pitching field

General

  • On a small working farm in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • A 10-minute walk to the famed Sutton Hoo National Trust site
  • About a 10-minute drive to Woodbridge and Rendlesham Forest

A melodic name isn’t all Sutton Hoo has going for it… this site on a small working farm among free-range chickens is also less than a 10-minute walk from Sutton Hoo. You'll have heard of that of course: the splendid Anglo-Saxon ship burial where a warrior king lay for 1,400 years, and hailed since its discovery in the 1930s as one of the finest archaeological finds anywhere in Britain.

Trips down memory lane are all around the local area too, as the park's in the age-old Suffolk Coast and Heath Area of Natural Beauty, and a 10-minute drive from the Woodbridge Tide Mill on the River Deben, one of the last in the world still churning up flour using time-honoured techniques.

Visit to learn about the process through interactive activities then ply the streets and traditional stores of the pretty riverside market town of Woodbridge – it’s got a butcher, fishmonger and greengrocer (as well as more modern amenities like a supermarket, coffee shops and clothes boutiques). Get your supplies from these local producers then tote it back to the park and cook it up on the campfire while the kids and dogs run around on the big grass field opposite.

And if you're after more historical expeditions once fully fed? Orford (20 minutes’ drive) and Framlingham (25 minutes) both have castles to check out, while the coastal and woodland walks near the site are sure to have you harking back to simpler times.

One tree-lined place for a wander close by is Rendlesham Forest a 10-minute drive away, which is well worth a visit for its play areas, picnic spots and bike park, as well as its orienteering trails and horse riding paths.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

  • Liked: 

    Plenty of space, family bathroom with bath for young children, play area in middle of tents so easy to keep an eye on children. The owner introduced herself and offered the children ride on toys to play with which they enjoyed. Facilities were very clean. Electric hook up and tap on each pitch. Would recommend to families with young children.

    Disliked: 

    Some road noise but to be expected due to the location. Would not put us off returning. Noise from other campers until late at night (12:30ish).

    Very friendly welcome from Helen soon after we arrived. Pitch allocation clearly displayed at reception on arrival.
    Well maintained, flat pitches, plenty of space and only a short walk into the National Trust Sutton Hoo site.
    Lots of space for children to play with slide and swings in the centre.
    Two generous fridge freezers available for anyone to use, particularly useful for those camping without a fridge. Electric hookups and water at every pitch.
    Good clean showers and toilets.

Lovely site, very good size pitches, ideal for families06/09/2019

  • Liked: 

    Lovely newly opened campsite, on a working farm & great for families. Liked the layout - open field, pitches around the edge, small children's play area in the middle.This layout meant the grandchildren - aged 3 & 6 could wander around/ ride their bikes without too much supervision & could be seen at all times.They were so content we spent the first day onsite which was a bonus financially !! they were also very impressed that the ice cream van turned up not long after we arrived. Pitches are a really good size, showers & toilets very clean, family bathroom is a good idea.
    Owners are very much hands on & accommodating - we needed to change pitches to get our hook ups on the connections, also they were very helpful in agreeing to our caravan being picked up later on our last day. They are planning on a few changes & aim to enlarge the children's play area, which will further enhance the site.
    The provision of communal fridge freezers are a good idea for anyone camping with only the basics.
    The site is ideally placed to visit various places & attractions & definitely hope to use it again next year !!

    Disliked: 

    Only one very small minor observation - extra hooks or small shelf in the showers would be good

Lovely family site with clean facilities and great pitches.03/09/2019

  • Liked: 

    Lovely family site, lots of children playing in the middle of the field so easy to keep an eye on them while relaxing. Only 20 pitches so not too big for little ones to get lost but still room for ball games and kite flying. Fire pits and wood available on site and very friendly and welcoming team.
    The pitches are really generously sized, level and fully serviced so no refilling water and emptying waste every day.

    Disliked: 

    We seemed to have a lot of flies around which we assumed was due to the farm although there were no obvious farm smells!
    The road could be a little noisy but lots of trees and newly planted bushes help.
    Only 2 toilets and showers each for men and women but great family bathroom with bath and shower.

You can also hire rowing, sailing and canoeing boats and explore the islands and waterways of Thorpeness (30 minutes) and its mere or switch to the artsy coastal town of Aldeburgh (25 minutes’ drive) for strolls on the North Sea sands, catching flicks at the century-old cinema and jaunts up the old Martello Tower.

Another scenic seaside village is Southwold further on at 45 minutes from the park with its Victorian pier and classic white lighthouse. And if you're into twitching? The coastal birding spots of Minsmere and Dunwich are both 40 minutes’ drive.
