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.

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

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

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.

Beautiful Site

We have just spent a really enjoyable week on the site. The owner was always very cheerful. She went out of her way to help us. The site was well looked after and the shower was always nice and hot. Will recommend the site and hope to be back again next year.

Peace & Tranquility

We have stayed at Stanstead Hall a number of times now and view it as our chilling out place away from the stresses and noise of busy town life. Stansetaed Hall is working arable farm with fields of crops surrounding the CL with obivious seasonal tractors and other farm machinery. The site is access from a lane via a long drive allowing the CL to be situated away from roads so virtually no traffic noise. The site itself is mostly flat well kept grass with some H/standings. The toilets and shower are housed in the adjacent farm buildings and suitable for wheelchair access, the recycling area is also in these buildings. The internet is what you would expect in the middle of nowhere that is slow occasionally tripping out but its there. Poppy the Labrador could be contrued as a nuiscence by some but as the notices say dont feed her and shoo her away if you dont want her visiting, the geese are noisy and poo but it is a farm. The wildlife consists of numerous ducks, Roe, Munjack deer, owls, buzzards, swallows and martins with the occasional Hobby. This is a wonderful place that very occasionally at changeover times gets busy but it is now our haven and we will be revisiting very soon.

Lovely and Peaceful

HappyWe have just spent 10 days at this lovely cl .If you want peace and quiet then this is the place to go. We had no problems with too many vans on site in fact we were the only ones on there for some of the time. The facilities are basic but adequate with plenty of hot water. CLs do not have to provide a shower, let alone a loo so we always see those that do as a bonus ,as long as they are clean .We will be back for some more relaxation and cycling in this lovely part of the world.
