Relax in the Suffolk countryside

Visitors to Polstead Club campsite can expect to find a thoughtfully laid out campsite, maintained to a high standard. The pitches are generously sized, some are screened by hedges and trees other pitches are in small clusters giving a more secluded feel.

The modern toilet and shower facilities, together with a superb washing up area are centrally located. The site shop is stocked with essentials and younger campers are treated to a small play area.

Its rural location on the edge of a conservation area ensures visitors to our Polstead campsite in Suffolk have plenty to do during their stay. The campsite takes its name from a pretty village just a mile away, which features a large pond separated from the village green by a steep hill. There is an excellent network of paths around the village, some taking in the area’s ancient woodland and county wildlife sites.

The campsite is surrounded by quiet country lanes, ideal for exploration by bike. The Suffolk villages of Kersey, Lavenham – with its stunning guildhall and church - and Boxford are less than ten miles from site.

Constable country, including Flatford Mill and Dedham, is within driving distance, as is Long Melford – home to a number of antique shops and the location for TV’s Lovejoy.

Quiet Country Club Site.

Quiet Country Club Site. In the middle of Constable Country, nearby historic Colchester & Sudbury. The campsite has individual private hard stand section, a separate field with children play area, and an extended field. All facilities are nice and clean. Overall it a nice campsite and would recommend it.

This review is for Polstead

The only problem we found was when manoeuvering our caravan into it's allotted space with an electric mover. The roadways and hardstandings were gravelled and obviously well worn down with the constant weight of traffic, but whilst turning our caravan we found that the jockey wheel was really struggling to move on the thick layer of more loose gravel at the central front edge of the pitch which obviously doesn't get much traffic over it. Once parked on our pitch we found that the jockey wheel had actually broken as a result of this, and we had to visit a caravan centre to purchase a new wheel. During our stay we saw another caravan on the site with the same problem and the owner had also needed to replace his jockey wheel. I feel this situation needs investigation and remedy as it makes an expensive start to a holiday. Fortunately my husband was able to carry out the repair himself, but a less able person would have been compelled to use the services of a professional - at even more expense.
