I stayed here with my two sons for one night just before Easter. Beautiful scenery, very quiet with good facilities. The grounds are in great condition with lovely views across fields. A bit tricky and secluded to find. We had no problem, but I suspect the toilet and shower facilities may get a bit crowded at peak times.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay , on the subject of toilets showers e.t.c , as it was early in the year for your visit only some of the facilities were open , 8 showers is quite a lot for a small site . Hope you will return to see us sometime in the future.

Set in the middle of rural Suffolk Brighthouse Farm is a lovely place to stay and a good starting point to explore the area. A great retreat after a good day out. And there will be a surprise for breakfast into the bargain.

The location of the B&B is fine, very quiet with big garden and beautiful surroundings. The rooms are a little bit old fashioned but very clean. Odell and his family are very welcoming and friendly, and Odell is a fantastic cook, his breakfast is fabulous!

This was our second stay at the lovely Brighthouse farm in our caravan. Beautiful views over the countryside and a warm welcome from the lovely owner Odell. Refreshing to have such large pitches and not be charged for having an awning. Dog friendly site.Facilities are very good and we will be returning in the very near future!! :)

We pitched our tent on the edge of a field of crops so had fantastic views over farmland. The campsite was full but didn't feel overcrowded/ overbooked as there was plenty of room. The toilets and showers aren't the best that I have seen on a campsite but are okay. They could do with a good clean but they are...

The campsite is outstanding and very beautiful, like camping in a park. However, from the beginning we should have guessed things weren't right. The entrance is very scruffy with no signs to tell you where to knock or make contact with owners. Having found some one you then go through a working farm area into the camp site. However, the...

During my two stays at BrightHouse I was made to feel very welcome. The farm is quiet and beautiful to have a wander round. The rooms have everything needed for a short stay and I expect if there was anything else I had wanted I only need to ask as Odell was extremely helpful. The breakfasts are AMAZING and huge....

Set amidst beautiful countryside within easy reach of Bury St Edmunds. Greeted by a warm welcome and shown to a very comfortable room. Breakfasts were tailored to our needs and were excellent, varied and prepared to a high standard. They set us up for the day.
