Blackberry Wood is within striking distance I would have thought. They have a pretty strict no music at all and no noise after 11pm rule.

Yes, we got the train there a while back when the dog was still around - it's a lovely place and I'm sure we'll be back at some point.

It's at the far end of what we're comfortably capable of cycling, given that this is first year in some time we've been cycle camping (difficult to cycle camp when the dog was with us so we used trains and backpacks instead). About three miles further than Knepp, which we both found challenging with a camping load (torrential rain and getting lost didn't help matters).

Oh FFS. Just looked at the knepp one and it's apparently unsuitable for kids under 12 cos it has fires and water

What utter balls. My eldest lit a fire with one of them sparky stick things on her fifth birthday. They have both been in canoes since a young age and we all go wild swimming but no in this age of idiotic and massively over the top insurance claims/over zealous risk assessment/ people unable to take responsibility for themselves they can't go camping cos it has fires despite having done so since around a year. I pretty much look for fires as a requirement for a camp site

Although at eighty quid a night for a family of four ill pass

I will however recommend Alde Garden newr Framlingham and Lings Meadow which is sorta Bury St Edmunds way. Both small sites, Alde much smaller with limited pitches. Comunial fires (lings has fire outs as well) have stayed at both in last month or so and have managed to keep open with usual charms despite the pandemic
