Perfect getaway

We have been using this CL now for several years and have got to know Maurice very well and also several regulars at the site as they seem to return regularly . To be honest I was slightly reluctant to write a review as we wanted to keep it as bit of a secret but Maurice along with Audrey and Tom , who help Maurice while he recovers from illness deserves praise for the excellent condition of the site but more importantly the always welcoming friendly atmosphere . It is set in a lovely area and the dog walking and cycling in the area are fantastic along with some local pubs and also there is fishing nearby and also shopping and fine fish and chips from Harleston . We have been 3 times so far this year and will be returning next month for , un fortunately our final visit this year . It tends to be the only CL we use now as it is by far the best we have been to . Its so peaceful except harvest time and its just a lovely site with trees and hedges all round apart from the gateway . The village has its own store run by the villagers [ Maurice was involved with this but unfortunately cant at the moment ] There is a lovely lady hairdresser , Vanessa who I always use while I,m there to have my hair cut . So our little secret is now out but a big thank you to Maurice along with Audrey and Tom for making each visit a lovely lasting memory

Why No Reviews ?

Looking for a site Norfolk/Suffolk border found Brook Cottage, but no reviews ?. So used Google Earth to locate and check area. Looked just what we wanted and surrounded by trees on three sides, easy access. So booked site for 7 nights then added another 2 nights after we arrived.. On arrival we were greeted by Tom & Audrey who act as wardens for Maurice who owns site but has has medical issues, so not easy for him to get around.Tom & Audrey offered tea !!! tea now that's a first - but no thanks caravan & awning first, plus dogs need a walk. Facilities are fine, water & sewage little dated but we are caravaning, EHU next to site. Weather excellent, so why is there no reviews ? Got it on our first day, " if you don't tell anyone about the site it will remain a great little site" that's the reason. We were also invited to attend local village hall on Thursday night for fish & chips and a pint, plus Maurice asked us to have nibbles & drinks on another night !!!! Dogs loved the walks, by the way walks in fields where grass had been cut, so you knew the way. Area is great with Harleston & Bungay nearby, Southwold with those Fish & Chips again only a short distance. All in all a excellent site with very nice people running it, would we return - 100% Yes. Lastly I thank Maurice / Tom / Audrey for making our stay so great.
