Why stay here ...

Situated in the heart of the Suffolk countryside up a long drive making the site very peaceful and relaxing. Situated close to a number of National Trust Properties and with easy access to the coast.

As a dog owner myself, we welcome your dogs and there are numerous country walks adjacent to the site. The chickens, geese and ducks will also help you enjoy your stay.

There are plenty of spacious hard standings and electric hook-ups. The CL has a waste disposal point, a shower and a WC for use by members.

Wi-Fi is available free of charge but as we are out in the countryside the signal can be intermittent, even with large boosters. We are high up so the TV signal is good except if a tree gets in the way!

We look forward to welcoming you to our CL.

A Spacious CL

Stanstead Hall
We really enjoyed our stay here during May 2021 and there is plenty of space to just spread around. In the barn there are information boards, hand sanitiser and I think gloves. Chickens, two geese wander, two rather plump cats and . The grass is cut regularly and collected not scattered to be walked ion to your caravan. .

Perfect setting

Stanstead Hall
Spent a few nights on this lovely CL. It’s in a lovely part of Suffolk with beautiful countryside. The CL has plenty of space and the grass is very well kept and flat. Mrs Leverett is friendly and helpful. The facilities are really good and clean. The attention to the Covid rules are excellent. We certainly will return to this lovely site.

Lovely location but let down by facilities and a lack of information on arrival

Stanstead Hall
I have just come back from staying at this site for 2 nights. The countryside and location are really lovely but the thing that really ruined my stay was the facilities. I know CL's don't have to provide a shower or toilet but, if they do, I think they should be fit for purpose. Prior to my visit and booking this site, I read the reviews on here but I paid little attention to the dates of the reviews. Someone mentioned in 2015 that the toilet and shower were very tired but now, over 4 years later, they really do require some attention, the shower in particular. A lady that arrived on the site at the same time as us commented that she wouldn't even let her horse go near the shower in the state it's in! The chemical toilet empying point is within the same farm building/shed as the shower and toilet. It is quite literally right next to all the campsite information and tourist leaflets which I thought was horrible. Upon emptying my toilet cassette, I noticed on the noticeboard that only green chemical should be used. No where is this mentioned on this CL's details on the CAMC. To discover this upon emptying my toilet cassette is just a little bit too late! Even though I booked this site 5 weeks in advance, there was no toilet paper or paper hand towels in the toilet. There is a polite request on the noticeboard requesting that visiting dogs do not defecate on the site. Yet this is exactly what the owner's dog did on the grass opposite my caravan on the first morning. This site could be a truly lovely place but is let down by a lack of communication from the owner on arrival, seriously tired shower and toilet facilities and some basic lighting around the drinking water and hardstanding area.

Beautiful.spacious site

Stanstead Hall
We spent a couple of nights here at the end of a break in East Anglia and wished we had left time to stay for longer. It's a very attractive site with a pond (beware the mosquitoes in the evening) and lovely views beyond. We have a motorhome and need hardstanding in March/April, so we pitched up on the picnic square in the photograph, with the owner's permission. This was level, which always helps. The owner was out and about when we arrived and came over to explain the location of the facilities. The toilet and shower were perfectly adequate for a CL, though the toilet emptying was the same building, which was slightly awkward. The site was large with vans well spaced and the whole place had a relaxing ambiance. Wish it had been warm enough to sit outside! My only caveat is dog poo on the field left by the owner's wandering black Labrador! You don't really want to walk to the loo with your eyes on the ground! The visitors kept their dogs on a lead and took them off site for walks. We will definitely be back though - this a lovely base to explore the glorious villages of mid Suffolk.
