Welcome to the campsite

General

  • Family-run site opened in 2016, near the Suffolk Heritage Coast
  • Wet weather facilities including games barn and picnic tables
  • Modern amenities block with underfloor heating

Owners Maria and Guy at The Croft Campsite in East Anglia know what makes guests tick: they've added heaps of little touches to this popular little site a short drive from the Sussex Heritage Coast.

Opened in 2016, The Croft is a small family-run countryside site with a friendly vibe, high-quality amenities and loads of room to play. It's in the village of Ubbeston, near the market towns of Framlingham and Halesworth, and a couple of miles from the pubs and supermarket in the village of Laxfield.

Help yourself to a tea, coffee or squash when you arrive, then set up in this pleasant spot; the owners are always around if you need any help. And then investigate your surroundings: The Croft has a big field for football, kite flying and general running around, and a barn kitted out with ping pong tables, table football and ride-on toys. The Cart Lodge is a communal space with picnic tables for dining away from your pitch. Four-legged guests can dash about at the dog run area, which stretches to a third of an acre.

Barbecues are held here on Fridays, egg, bacon or sausage rolls are generally available on Sundays, and croissants and pain au chocolat can be ordered every morning. There's no shop, but camping essentials like torches and batteries are available for sale.

Other facilities include a well-kept toilet and shower block, washing-up facilities, chemical disposal and a washing machine and dryer. The owners are happy to charge mobile phones and battery packs for free.

The nearest town to the site is Halesworth, a scenic 15-minute drive away.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Very clean toilets/showers which were well set up for COVID-19. Hand sanitizer everywhere to use before and after going into buildings. Friendly staff who were particularly helpful in lending a spanner when we had issues with the van.

    Disliked: 

    At the weekend when more children arrived it was harder to get a shower - they could do with a couple more.

Lovely well maintained site in great countryside09/18/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomLouisa D.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Canvas 1 bedroom camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We stayed in the wooden pod and it was lovely. The entire place was very well maintained and clean and ther were social distancing measures in place. We had a cavas seating area and camping kitchen outside and they'd thought of everything and included pans, utensils, cutlery, plates, even things to wash everything up with. The toilet and shower blocks were clean and there was social distancing in place. The owner was friendly, offered breakfast, charging facilities, and maps of the local area. We used these to go on some lovely local walks. There were even fridges to put your food in and a communal eating area. We'd definitely stay again.

    Disliked: 

    The only suggestions we'd make to improve the experience was a reclining chair or hammock to sit and chill out with a book outside the pod. Also, as a woman with long hair, a shower that lasts longer between pressing the button would be good. I've stayed at campsites before where you put money in for a certain number of minutes and that worked well.

Day trips and wanders around Suffolk attractions and towns are easily accessed from the site: Framlingham and its castle overlooking the mere (do take a wander around the ramparts); Orford with English Heritage keep, boat trips along the River Alde and Orfordness-Havergate National Nature Reserve and lighthouse, and Minsmere, home to the coastal, woodland, wetland and heathland habitats of RSPB Minsmere.
