Why stay here ...

Broughton Hall CL is a peaceful site set in 1.5 acres of well mown grass, along 2 sides of a moated farmhouse and amongst a few old fruit trees. It is on a working family farm with extensive walks from the site.

It is situated in Mid-Suffolk just off the A140 (Ipswich to Norwich) and five minutes from the A14 making it a very central point for touring Suffolk and neighbouring counties.

The site is open all year round with very warm toilet and shower facilities, 2 pitches with ‘re-enforced’ grass and a hard standing lay-by area for extreme conditions. Everyone has space for an awning, one car and can be well away from other vans. We pride ourselves on our lawn and so the site has 9 EHU, with 10amps, so that every pitch has time to recover between visitors. Coarse fishing is available in the moat with Rudd, Tench and a few Carp.

Wi-fi is free to everyone on site.

We produce our own ‘Welcome’ leaflet with recommended inns, shops, local attractions and guidance for using the site.

We are about 30 miles from the major seaside resorts of Southwold, Aldeburgh and Felixstowe with Lowestoft 40 miles away. Going inland we are 30 minutes from the cathedral town of Bury St. Edmunds, with it wonderful selection of shops and the tranquil Abbey Gardens also 40 minutes from the medieval wool towns of Lavenham and Long Melford.

The site fees are £20 a night with no hidden extras!

Please Note: Toilet and shower facilities are temporarily unavailable at this site

Beautiful Orchard Setting

Broughton Hall
We recently stayed here for 9 nights and had the place to ourselves apart from the first night at a time when many caravan sites were full. It was a lovely place to stay and we would certainly return if we visit the area again. The caravan pitches are well spread out in an orchard by an attractive Suffolk farm house.The coast is 30 - 40 minutes away and there are several National Trust properties within easy reach. We would highly recommend this site.

July stay

Broughton Hall
Peaceful stay on grassed flat area although do watch the low hanging branches on the apple trees, as we nearly caught our aerial! Difficult to spot the CL sign so would recommend google maps to talk us in!! We could choose our pitch as we had a choice of more secluded by the moat or the more open area . We chose this and had the area to ourselves for most of the week, only downside was no WIFI there apparently signal blocked by large walnut tree and toilets were closed due to COVID restrictions, but not a problem as we just used our own. The owner was really helpful answering all our questions about pubs and footpaths. We cycled to Mickfield and chanced upon a church/AirB&B to look around and attended an evening service. Closest pub is The Magpie we drove as closed at 7pm, but you can walk, turn left at the bottom of the drive onto the main road and go through the hole in the hedge on the other side of the road to walk there. Great to try Lithuanian food the goulash was lovely. You can cycle to The Highwayman by going through the caravan storage area and out through the fields then cross the A14. We did cycle this way via Crowfield airfield and Creeting St Mary to Needham Lakes and also managed to cycle to Otley Hall and Helmingham Hall gardens ( remember to mention Caravan club 2:1 discount here). Another pub to try was The Walnut Tree at Thwaite totally veggie pub my Hubby was in his element as he could choose from the whole menu for a change! The black currant sorbet and coconut ice cream were yummy! Lovely site but we did find the roads busy. Next time we need to take our ordinance survey map to find the footpaths.

Beautiful and peaceful stay

Broughton Hall
What a gem! Beautiful orchard like setting, with plenty of room. One pitch is next to the stream with ducks. Water, bins and chemical disposal easily accessible and there is a lovely long walk through the farm for dogs. We pitched up in the far corner with plenty of shade and space around us. The owner came over shortly after we arrived to explain where everything was and how to contact him if we needed anything. We normally stay on Club Sites and this was only our second CL experience but it has made us think we should choose them in the future! If we had any criticism at all it's that it would be useful to have a bigger signpost at the entrance as we went past and it took us ages to find somewhere to turn round with the caravan. But on reflection that was probably as much our naivety as anything!

Gorgeous site, like pitching in an orchard garden

Broughton Hall
Only booked one night here as part of a tour of East Anglia. The CMAC CL sign is not easy to spot, being a bit overgrown, but once on the track in to the site, how nice it is soon becomes apparent. Our name was on the welcome board and an invite to pitch where we wanted. Difficult choice, as they're all lovely pitches, under trees, but open enough for lots of sun to get through. Short grass, well maintained and more blackberries than anyone could pick! Excellent hot shower, good and easy to use facilities, with ful recycling. Didn't go very far from the site (such a nice place to sit and read in the sunshine), but would recommend the Hog and Hen farmshop (Just past Mill Green about a mile from Broughton Hall) for some excellent local produce. Friendly and helpful owner, well organised, and well worth the price, if we lived anywhere near by we would be back, often.

Lovely site

Broughton Hall
Stayed here for six nights in May 2018. Enjoyed ourselves tremendously; access is good (coming from the A140, turn right into the lane about 50 yards after the Stonham Aspal sign) and easy drive into the field which is pretty much flat, hardly any levelling needed. We knew the area having stayed at another CL in the village before. The field is large so there is space in abundance and peaceful (though you can sometimes hear a little traffic from the road through the village, depending on which pitch you have), and lots of birdlife. We were greeted by Sam and children shortly after arriving who explained where everything was, and gave us a a very useful leaflet about the site and surrounding area. Loo and shower are good; chemical disposal point one of the easiest I've used. Met a fellow caravanner who had not stayed on a CL before who was very impressed. Great for a relaxing and restorative stay - highly recommended.
