Why we've chosen Rushbanks Farm Campsite

Just a short distance along the River Stour from the pretty 15th-century village of Nayland is Rushbanks, the only official campsite in Dedham Vale. It’s a peaceful, family-friendly site with simple facilities and is particularly good for boaters and canoeists as it’s situated by an easily navigable stretch of the river, with several landing stages and good access to and from the water. The site is also ideal for walkers as it has a public footpath crossing the site as well as plenty of options for walks in the local area. The Norman church at Wissington is just a short stroll from the campsite, or you could head down to the historic Anchor Inn pub in Nayland for some good pub food and local ales.
