Our stay

Rated 5 out of 5
17th September 2021

Mary & Graham are outstanding hosts. Everything you want or need is available. The fire pit is a great addition…..on our last evening we had all the campers join us for a friendly chat & drink, very sociable. On my birthday during our stay Mary & Graham brought a cake with candle! How lovely is that. If you are looking to stay in the Bungay area we highly recommend you try this site.

Beautifully quiet CS

17th September 2021

This is by far one of the best CS sites we have ever been on. It is quiet, the facilities are spotlessly clean. Thought has been given to everything you may need. Had a wonderful evening at the fire pit with everybody joining in.. The hosts, Graham and Mary are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The grass is cut short and cuttings are collected so no walking them into your caravan. All in all a great site. We will without a doubt will be returning.

We stayed for 6 nights in August. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. It was a good location to visit the area with lots of interesting places to visit, including Southwold, Dulwich and The Broads.
We would definitely choose this site again when visiting Suffolk.

We enjoyed the Old Sun for the second time. We were looking for somewhere near Beccles last year and so enjoyed our time we were very happy to return this year. The site is well appointed and everything is very well kept. It is clean and tidy and Mary and Graham work hard to give a good welcome and make sure everything is in order. The facilites are good and provide all that is required.

13th August 2021

Just reached home after a superb 5 night stay at this rather excellent CS.
This was our second stay at The Old Sun having previously stayed a year ago between lockdowns.
Attention to detail seems to be the owners buzz word and every facility was in fine order.
The chemical loo and grey water disposal points were handily placed as was the drinking water tap and open air washing up sink/waste bins/recycling bins.
As we had our own onboard facilities, we didn’t use the on site shower or loo but they looked spotless.
Graeme and Mary (the owners) are a friendly and charming couple and run a first class site.
We can heartily recommend this quality site and will be returning ASAP.

Relaxing stay

Rated 5 out of 5
13th August 2021

A superb adult only campsite that has been well thought out in terms of layout and facilities.
Graham and Mary are excellent friendly hosts and it was a pleasure meeting them.
The site has shower and toilet block a guest room with all manner of items even bits of shopping you might have forgotten or ran out of. Outside washing up area, a fire pit areaand another field for you to walk your dog in.
Broome village is 5 mins walk with a local dog friendly pub. Broome heath is 5 mins walk away with lots of trails to follow and big fishing lakes. Ditchingham was 5 mins walk with a local shop and American dinner. Bungay was 15 mins walk with a variety of shops, eating places, pubs and a castle ruin.
Lots of places to walk with good paths and trails.
We would definitely recommend this site to anyone wanting a great stay for adults only and we will be definitely back ourselves for another visit.
Well done Graham and Mary.

We stayed at this small site for one night, were welcomed on arrival and told where everything was if we needed it, we were self contained but there were showers, toilet and fridge/freezer and ice if you needed it. The site was very gently sloping, but fine with chocks, and we had loads of space right next to a stream. We used their adjacent field for dog exercising, both fields were well mowed. A fabulous heath with fishing lakes just opposite down the road, could walk for miles with our dog. A very pleasant stay, thank you.

Mary was the perfect host with the perfect idea of what a campsite should offer. Well kept shower and toilet room. Beautiful pitch and so quiet! Also ready to assist or offer suggestions on where to visit/ explore. I’ve been camping for many years, and this is hands down the best place I have stayed. Ticked all the boxes. My friend and I were in a tent right next to the river. Just pure bliss! There is also a firepit which a few of us sat around with a drinks, chatting. I cannot wait to go back!

30th July 2021

We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Sun campsite. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We were camping in a tent, meeting up with friends after lockdown. The site was first class. It was very spacious, with huge camping pitches and Graham and Mary ensure there are only a small number of units at any one time – usually a maximum of 5 or 6 at once. The site is very quiet, in the middle of nature, with like minded campers.
The facilities are very good and are kept clean and Covid safe – a nice toilet block with very good shower, a well equipped guest lounge, with local information, a utility area with washing up facilities, a dog walking area and a large communal fire pit at the bottom of the camping field for an evening get together and drink.
The local area is really nice. Just across the road is Broome Heath and it’s four (fishing) lakes, ideal for local walks. A little further away (1-2 miles) is the lovely town of Bungay, with its beautiful old buildings, riverside walks, common and some excellent cafes. There is a supermarket in Bungay, but there are two larger ones a little further away in Beccles.
The hosts, Graham and Mary, are the icing on top of the cake. They are very friendly, without being overbearing, and do everything they can to make your stay memorable (in the right way!) one. They are experienced campers and have made their site as one they would like to visit themselves. They have certainly succeeded!

We have never stayed on a site that has such generous pitches,. this small and well kept site provides all that you require and having only a handful of pitches you never feel crowded. All precautions have been taken in view of Covid, so you feel safe. The hosts are very welcoming and eager to help if you have any questions on the area. This is probably now our go to campsite

This is a lovely site run by Mary and Graham who couldn’t be more helpful. We were booked in for ten days but unfortunately we had to curtail our visit because of a technical fault with our caravan (a serious water leak). Mary and Graham did what they could to help us out but it is a workshop job.
If we choose to visit Norfolk again this site would be high on our list of choices and we would highly recommend it.

As experienced motorhomers, Mary and Graham know what is needed on a camping and caravan site, and ‘The Old Sun’ is extremely well organised and managed, with a light and friendly touch. The facilities are kept in immaculate condition , and the beautiful location, evident careful planning and easy manner were much appreciated. Absolutely first class!

We arrived at the Sun to find a warm welcome, fantastic facilities and beautiful position for a site. The view that greats you on site is stunning. The wild life is amazing. We saw wild deer wandering along through the woods the bottom of the field. Kites and Buzzards were flying over head and the occasional fly past of the owl in the early evening. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to stay the Sun is the place to be. The hosts Mary and Graham cannot do enough to help make you’re stay a great experience. Will be return.

Lovely spacious and peaceful site. Friendly and helpful owners who are themselves motorhomers. They have thought of everything to make your stay as easy and comfortable as possible. Immaculately clean facilities and well kept site. Although within easy walking distance of the town of Bungay you feel in the middle of the countryside & we saw kites, deer and wagtails while we were there. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had a marvellous time at The Old Sun. It was our first visit in our motorhome and we took our bicycles as we had heard of the cycle route network in the Bungay area. The site was tidy and the stable block which had been converted into a bathroom with loo and sitting room (with games and books to borrow and a fridge/freezer to use) was scrupulously clean. There were also thoughtful extras like eggs and milk in the fridge and fresh herbs and cherry tomatoes for guests to pick.
The cycling in the area was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

We were warmly greeted by Mary who showed us the facilities (shed with loo and shower and spacious room with basin, and adjoining room with large fridge and local info) and kindly sold us a box of her own eggs as we’d left ours behind! Lovely small site with three electric hookups. We were lucky to have the place to ourselves. Wi fi in the van was a bit iffy but worked fine outside! Near Bungay and the coast – we discovered Cove Hithe which was wonderful. Would certainly go again.

This is my second stay at the Old Sun CL site. I was celebrating my birthday so we booked their Air B&B as well for my parents to stay in while we stayed in their lovely paddock overlooking the forest and brook. Fantastic facility’s and attention to detail …. nothing has been forgotten which is also mirrored in their Air B&B. I will certainly be returning in our Motorhome again next year. Very close to Beccles and Bungay and a 19 mile drive to the coast and Southwold (Adnams country) so book it now ….you wont be disappointed . Graham and Mary are wonderful hosts.

This little site is a real gem. We have stayed in many small CS sites, much preferring them to bigger commercial sites; this site was fabulous! We loved the warm welcome from our super hosts Graham and Mary who made sure we were happily settled in the day we arrived. They have thought of all the small details that make for super holidays, such as the honesty bar for items you might have forgotten, the stable lounge area and the selection of handmade fabric face masks to purchase (made by Mary to support a local charity), A highlight for us was the communal fire pit, perfect for sharing stories with other campers! We hope one day we will be back. Thank you both 🙂
