Polstead Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a beautiful park situated in the heart of the Suffolk countryside, but within easy reach of plenty of coastal areas, too. The park sits on the edge of a local conservation site and has 60 pitches available, welcoming motorhomes, tents, and touring campers onto site. We offer an extended season opening, from mid-February to early-January, allowing guests to come and stay at our popular site 11 months of the year.
Bring the whole family and even family pets along to enjoy the experience of staying with us; we have a children’s play area and loads of open space for both to enjoy. We also welcome caravan rallies and host several events throughout the year; check dates before you book with us if you want to be involved yourself.
Our pitches are conveniently set up with access to electric hook-ups, while Wi-Fi internet is available for all guests to use during their stay. We also provide useful facilities for washing up and chemical waste disposal, while our on-site shop means you can keep stocked up on your essentials without ever having to leave if you don’t wish to do so.
The picturesque village of Polstead is found only a mile away from the site, where you’ll find a range of outdoor activities including a fishing pond surrounded by footpaths and cycling trails for everyone to enjoy. Footpaths head out from Polstead and further into the heart of Suffolk, where you’ll find ancient woodland and several green sites that are open for exploration throughout the year. You can also jump in the car to explore country villages and the churches and other unique examples of architecture that fill them.
The famous port town of Felixstowe is a short drive from our site, and although a major cargo terminal also offers passenger ferry services across to the Netherlands should you wish to explore beyond Suffolk. A drive into Essex is also worth it, with Colchester Zoo one of the most popular in the United Kingdom and the seaside resort of Clacton-on-Sea easy to drive to within the hour.
You can also drive to the northwest and take in the pretty university city of Cambridge, while sticking to the coast offers access to Lowestoft, Norwich, and the famous Norfolk Broads area.
Types of pitches:
Hardstanding with electric hook-up
Grass pitch with electric hook-up
Hardstanding only pitch
Grass only pitch (no electric)
A well-sheltered site
Family shower room
Drinking water taps
Ice pack freezing
The site takes its name from a pretty village a mile away, which features a large pond separated from the village green by a steep hill. There is an excellent network of footpaths around the village, many of which take in the area’s ancient woodland and County Wildlife Sites.
Other local attractions include the quaint villages of Boxford and Kersey, as well as the stunning guild hall and church at Lavenham.
Constable country, including Flatford Mill and Dedham, is within a short drive, as is Long Melford – home to a number of antique shops and the location for TV’s Lovejoy.

My partner and I stumbled across this campsite by mistake. We have just spent a very relaxing week here with our two dogs. Karen and Greg were very helpful and the most kindest people you will ever meet they bent over backwards to make our stay stress free and enjoyable. There are lots of places to visit and all close by we will definitely be staying here again thanks again Karen and Dave
