I have stayed at The Orchard Campsite a couple of times and it has been great both times. I love the surrounding area with this part of Suffolk being one of my favourite places to visit in England.
The owner and staff are friendly and welcoming and the campsite isn't one of those bland, sterile ones where everything is rigidly marked out. There some spots for campervans and caravans that have electric hookups, lots of trees, a pond, a stream, and a couple of gorgeous gypsy caravans that I think you can rent to stay in (not tried that yet, maybe next time). They have nice clean (hot) showers and loos, facilities for electric shaving and hairdryers and a shop which sells lots of stuff including local produce. One of the best things is that you are allowed to have an open fire and can buy logs at the site.
It makes a great base for visiting the local area too, Orford is particularly nice.
I'd thoroughly recommend this campsite to anyone.
