Rushbanks Farm Caravan and Camping Site is set in the heart of Dedham Vale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The region was immortalised by the famous paintings of John Constable, and is thus known as ‘Constable Country.`
Rushbanks Farm is the only official site on the banks of the River Stour, close to the charming Suffolk village of Nayland which is characterised by picturesque 15th-century buildings.
It is a site with good facilities offering an original and family-friendly atmosphere, especially catering for boaters and canoeists. The river is wide and deep and there are a mile and a half of unobstructed water. There are several landing stages, and launching over the bank is easy.
A public footpath also crosses our farm, with several walking trails to choose from, including a forty-minute cross-country walk to the pub.
Rushbanks Farm welcomes families who want to enjoy themselves, whilst providing many opportunities for nature lovers and those who want to explore the great outdoors – or others who just want to relax and wind down around a campfire under the stars at night.
