Brick Kiln Campsite: Sunset

General

  • Peaceful adults-only site with a no-music/TV rule; dogs allowed
  • A 15-minute drive from Framlingham and 20 minutes from Aldeburgh
  • Shared kitchen, indoor seating and honesty shop; firepit 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 rule (other than birdsong, of course) should ensure that reading hours and slumbers go undisturbed.

Eats are easily sorted without leaving this placid paradise: every pitch has a firepit, and there's a communal barbecue where you can cook up more traditional meals (disposable barbecues are also for sale here). 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. There's also a reading room with a book exchange and games to keep you entertained.

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.

Quiet, relaxing, friendly, well equipped site09/04/2022

    This is the second time we've stayed at Brick Kiln Campsite and we had another great stay. It's a really calm, welcoming site, and the perfect place to unwind and catch your breath. The site is quiet (no music allowed) and evenings are generally spent sat around the fire pits.

    The toilet and shower block is clean and there is a booking system for the showers which seems to work really well. There is also a kettle which you can use and an honesty shop which is nicely stocked with things you might have forgotten or drinks/snacks you might like.

    There is a great pub nearby - about a 15 minute walk across the fields. Make sure you take a torch for the walk home! There is also a farm shop and cafe nearby (just by the main road turning) which we went to as it was a great place for breakfasts.

    Definitely recommend this site if you're looking for a well equipped site which is calm and relaxing.

    There is simply nothing to dislike about this site. The facilities are spotless, the site is flat and well kept, the location is perfect for exploring the whole of the Suffolk coast, from North to South. The host is friendly, approachable and amenable. We will certainly be back.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing that spoiled this experience was the baldy ginger bearded camper (we all know the type) moaning that the supplied extras such as the electric kettle weren't good enough. It's an extra mate, most campsites don't provide them. Be grateful.

    Such a magical and special site….. We are seasoned Campervan folks and this site really stands out for us.

    Tina and her husband are such lovely folks and could not have been more helpful, in a low key way. especially when my partner wasn’t too well.

    It’s a very quiet site. No music. Adults only which we hadn’t realised when we booked, however it added to the peace. Lots of space.

    The pitches don’t have electric which suited us, however there is an amazing quirky building with electric points if you need them, kettle, toaster, microwave, hairdryers…. And a wonderful honesty shop where you can buy anything from eggs, bacon to shampoo and Buck’s Fizz! Plus Fridge freezers to store your food in.

    The loos, showers, pot washing and facilities are brilliant! Unisex - which was interesting and fun chatting to folks. Super old/ retro furniture in the washroom area. All very clean.

    Outside is a pretty covered area with sofas and tables and chairs with fairy lights at night. Wonderful clear unpolluted night sky and views of the stars…..

    Great dog walking close by.

    Cannot fault it! Our first visit and we will be 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 (7.8 kilometres)
  • Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon Burial Mounds (8.2 kilometres)
  • Orford Castle (11.8 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Sutton Hoo (8.2 kilometres)
  • Orford Ness National Nature Reserve (12.2 kilometres)
