Thankyou to all the staff at The Orchard Campsite for a great weekend away at the start of May. We loved the campfire and the children went wild for the glow sticks on the Saturday night. The meat from the on site shop was amazing and good value for money. We've booked again for the summer alien event and we... More

Just got back from a couple of nights at The Orchards Campsite and what a lovely site it is. You can camp either in a field, in the trees or by a pond (where you can also fish). The shower and toilet block adequate for campers and there is a microwave, kettle, fridge, freezer and washing machine to use. I... More

What a smashing little camp site! One of the loveliest camp sites I've holidayed at. Small and friendly with a great atmosphere. There's plenty of things to do for children and adults alike. The river Deben runs through the site and is shallow-ish, (3-4 feet deep at most) slow flowing, clear and full of fish, ducks, swans....and in high season,... More

Attended a friends wedding. Lovely location, clean and well organised. The wedding was organised by the bride and groom but the "tents" provided for their overnight stay were awesome. A bit hidden away but that is probably part of the whole experience.

We have just come back from our annual group camping at The Orchard Campsite, and what a find! The place is in the heart of the beautiful suffolk coast, and for all the alien fans out there it is in the middle of the UK's version of Roswell. They even do alien weekends! The campsite is in a little forrest... More

We stayed for two nights. The campsite is relaxed with a nice range of spaces with different surroundings like next to water, or within trees which we were able to pick from. There are some electric hook up points I noticed but we didn't need one. The site facilities are great. The shop is particularly good. It looks like the... More

Dear James, Thank you for taking the time to write us such a great review. Sorry to hear that some noisy neighbours bothered you during your stay, as you rightly state it's hard to police this sometimes and I hope if you mentioned this to site staff that they took it on board. Sometimes though it's only after people have... More

What a wonderful weekend we have had! My female friends took me to Orchard Campsite for my hen weekend. We all camped together, by the lake and I was treated to a night in a gypsy caravan.

We chose the Orchard Camp site as the venue for our wedding at the beginning of August (2014). Stuart, Alan and the whole team were fantastic!
