Top site for play area
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.

This site has its own character, which is very pleasant. It is obviously cared for. there is some road noise from the Ipswich Sudbury road. I found the gravel surfaces a bit difficult to pull a wastemaster or chemical toilet across. Indeed my toilet fell off the trolley! Generall recommended.

Friendly and personal welcome; spotless facilities; excellent WiFI.
Love the hedges but they could definitely do with a good haircut though as encroaching on some of the smaller pitches and pathways around the facilities block.

Two minor criticisms:-
If I was with a young family, I would like an area for ball games.
When the campsite is full (60 units), perhaps 6 toilets, 6 showers and 8 wash basins might not be sufficient.

Excellent site. Facilities are fine. Free wi-fi (with strings attached :-)) was the best wi-fi of the three sites we visited during stay in the UK. However the stability of the connection changed and bandwidth probably isn't up for too many users. The absolute only complaint at all. Otherwise, site is now listed as a super site for us.
The trip to the ferry to Denmark, which is an era gone by by September 2014, was perfect in length and the location of the site is great for trips through wonderful Suffolk villages and countryside.
All stars are well deserved.
