The perfect base to explore Norfolk and Suffolk

The Old Sun Campsite is perfectly located for those who wish to get out and about whilst staying in Norfolk.

Nearby is the historic market town of Bungay with it’s 17th century Buttercross standing proudly in the market place and hosts a number of interesting  shops, cafes, historic castle ruins, the Fisher Theatre and a local swimming pool.

Slightly further is the larger town of Beccles.  Situated inland on the River Waveney, Beccles sits at the southern point of the Suffolk & Norfolk Broads. Beccles offers a wealth of diversity, combining history with modern-day culture. The town is surrounded by fantastic views of the Southern Broads and set amongst rolling countryside. The town centre provides a blend of independent shops, restaurants and other services that will make a trip to Beccles memorable.

The beautiful County Town is the historic cathedral city of Norwich and is only 12 miles away.  So much to explore from the Castle to the Cathedrals (we have two!), fabulous places to eat and drink, and city centre shopping there is something for everyone.

The Norfolk Broads are nearby where you can hire a boat for the day or just sit and enjoy the views.

And both the Norfolk and Suffolk Coast is only 15 miles away with a mix of lively and energetic to peaceful and beautiful.

Nature is all around you, sit back, relax and enjoy.
