Why stay here ...
The site is a grassy field to the side of the parish church. Access is from the B1084 to the west of the village, just inside the village sign. The church tower is visible from the road. Satnav can be confusing.
Follow a sandy track for 40 yards and right up a slight incline, hardcore, into the site.
The pitch fee will be collected early in the evening.
Some sloping pitches
Great savings on days out

We stayed on the Chillesford CL for two nights during the May/June half term week and it was perfect for our needs. The fresh water and waste disposal were easy to access and it was easy to find a level area to pitch our campervan on. The proximity to the church and churchyard makes for a uniquely tranquil stay and there are countless beautiful walks through the countryside straight from the site - our dogs had a fabulous time too! The gentleman who came to collect our pitch fee was even kind enough to open up the church for us so we could see inside the historic building. Even better still, we knew our money would be going towards the upkeep of the church via the PCC. Thank you for a fabulous stay - we will most certainly be back soon!
We stayed here for three nights over a weekend in July. The site is surrounded by trees so is very secluded and the churchyard and church give it a sense of uniqueness that you don't get on a lot of sites. Access to the site is a little tight but our unit is pretty big and we had no problem getting in. The road is not far away but presented no problems in terms of noise and the site whilst not flat is also not so much of a slope as to be a problem. As always I've made a video of the site since that will give a far better impression of it than I could put into words. https://youtu.be/v1kmHDF7BqI
Please bare in mind that this site is a church carpark that links directly to the beautiful medieval graveyard and as such in our view ought to be respected as such. We arrived on a Thursday and we were quite literally amazed by the almost unique tranquility of this very individual site, but little did we know our visit would be ruined by the arrival the following afternoon by a regular visitor who treated the site as if it was their very own! This isn't the place to point out the errors of this member who didn't control their dogs at all, nor ask their grandchildren to respect the beautiful, ancient consicrated land over which they noisilly rode their bikes, but very clearly this regular visitor should have paid far closer attention to the requests made in the visitor notes of this beautiful churches surroundings!! Luckilly this couple and their grandchildren were only there for 2 nights. But with the exception of the above which I am reporting to the PCC, this location is a quite amazing and utterly tranquil CL to visit, most especially if you are dog owners or twitchers, as from the very entrance of the site their are quite literally miles and miles of totally unspoilt tracks to explore, but mind you, keep an eye open for tics as from our experiences there are a lot of the terrible little critters in the immediate neighbourhood. The location of the site allows easy access to a wide area of the beautiful surrounding countryside and with the exception of our first two days we loved every single minute of our stay. Oh and by the way, this is a very basic site which is one of the reasons why we loved it so very much.
This is a lovely place to stay right next to a church which was open for the duration of our stay. The site is relatively small for five units but if spaced with consideration it will be cosy. There is easy of access to the water and septic tank but when we were there the septic tank was not draining although we were told it had been cleared recently. One is instructed to give the fee to the local pub but having tried several times it was always closed! We did manage it eventually and found that it had restricted opening times. We would advise sorting out the method of payment before arrival.
Stayed here over the weekend and would recommend. It is a very basic site with just a tap and WC point (separate) and a bin for rubbish. No Recycling so bought all that home. Track up to the site is sand so a bit scary in a MH trying to cross the ruts but made it. Would re-iterate what a previous review said regards getting the entrance hedge/trees trimmed, its OK for cars but not for a MH or caravan so it is a bit tight. Easy to find, just look for the church and the site is in the church car park (all grass). Quite a busy road during the day but no noise at night, paid at the pub in the morning. Lots of footpaths nearby. Maybe a bit tight with 5 units but so long as everyone spreads out it would probably be OK.
