The Campsite

Whether you enjoy walking, bird and wildlife watching, cycling, fishing or just sitting down with a good book in the peace and quiet, our award winning family run site is only a couple of hours from London and is conveniently placed or a relaxing break of any length.

Mill Hill Farm is located in rural Suffolk with panoramic views over open farmland. The site is divided up into sections with hedges and trees to help with that " get away from it all" feeling. If you're looking for some where to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet then look no further.

Entry is via card operated barrier. Just push the call button and you will be admitted. On arrival you will be greeted, taken to your pitch and a card issued which opens the barrier.  A £10 cash, refundable deposit is required. Arrivals are between 2pm and 5pm for touring pitches. Arrivals between 5pm and 7.50pm are by prior arrangement only.  We do not have a late arrivals pitch and cannot take arrivals after 8pm.  

Most touring pitches are in bays of up to four pitches.  Each bay has its own shared tap. Hedges and trees have been planted to maintain the feeling of privacy. We take touring caravans, motorhomes and camper vans and tents, but we do not have static caravans.  There are four self contained ensuite camping pods set around the Kingfisher Lake.

There are grass and hard-standing pitches with electric hook up and grass pitches with no electric hook-up. All pitches are close to fresh water taps. Each pitch allows plenty of personal space where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the views. There is no extra charge for an awning or gazebo  providing that it is fully contained within your pitch.

If you need to catch up on the emails from home or search the weather forecast we do have WiFi, which can be picked up free of charge near to the reception block. Just ask for the WiFi code.  

There are three heated toilet / shower blocks and two utility washing up rooms. In Nightingale and Barn Owl  blocks you will also find a separate disabled toilet / wet room. We do not make an additional charge for the showers or hot water. Motorhomes can take advantage of the grey waste emptying point and service point.

Our token operated washing machine and tumble drier is in its own log cabin. We sell maps in the shop and you can ask our staff about local walks and places to visit. There is a limited stock of tourist leaflets available.   We restarted our charity bookshelves following COVID and continue to donate in aid of  Macmillan Cancer Support.  There is a  freezer to enable ice blocks to be frozen located in the utility room.

There are two well stocked fishing lakes which as well as being great for fishing are a great walk offering views of neighboring farm land and wildlife spotting opportunities. Dogs can walk here on leads.

Whether you're just starting out or a more seasoned angler looking for a challenge there's fish in there for you, just purchase a day or night fishing ticket from reception.  The self contained camping pods are located next to the Kingfisher lake.

For our our four legged campers, we have extensive off road dog walks for you and your dog to enjoy.

Some areas have longer grass with paths mown in to provide habitats for various birds and animals.  To assist ground nesting birds, for example Skylarks, to raise chicks successfully  we do ask for dogs to be kept on a lead on the campsite and lake areas.  Outside our site you can access the Suffolk Wildlife Trust Darsham Marshes Nature Reserve and walk through the countryside via permissive paths, lanes and footpaths.
