Book camping accommodation at Rushbanks Farm Campsite
Rushbanks Farm 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 is a mile and a half of unobstructed water. There are several landing stages, and launching over the bank is easy.
Downstream there are two-step weir portages leading to the famed Anchor Pub at Nayland, and upstream two more portages can be navigated to reach the village of Bures St Mary. This part of the river is probably the quietest and most attractive section of the whole paddling adventure.
A public footpath also crosses our farm, with several walking trails to choose from.
On site we provide:
Separate toilets for men and women
Rowboat and Canoe Hire available every Saturday (& bank holiday weekends on Sunday's) from end of April to end of September 2016.
One tent per pitch.
The Owner Says
Rushbanks Farm 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.
The site first opened in the 1960’s and has been in the Bates family for three generations. It is currently operated by Gareth & James Bates who will be pleased to see you down there on-site.
Over the years the site has grown in popularity, with people returning at different times of the year to enjoy the changing colours of spring, summer and autumn.
Toilets, hot showers, a children's swing and play area, outdoor sink for washing dishes, fresh water taps, chemical disposal point, recycling. Free boat launch into the River Stour (if you bring your own) and canoes available to rent. Campfires permitted with fire pits for rent and logs for sale.
