Why stay here ...

Wellcome to Hillcrest.

We offer five grass pitches each with their own electric hook up in our field overlooking the Waveney Valley. We also offer fresh water, waste disposal, waste bins and a wide entrance for your convience. We are right next to a public footpath which leads to our local Pub and also pick up a Boat Ride into Beccles. A couple of minutes walk up the road is the lovely Maisebrook Farm offering a variety of local produce. Opposite us is Beccles Airports, what better way to view the area than from a private microlight flight? We are a few minutes drive away from Beccles and Bungay and a thirty minute drive from Southwold so there are many options for days out for all the family. We also have a private indoor swimming pool on site which is always heated above 30 degrees and can be hired for £15 an hour.

We hope you enjoy it here as much as we do!

Excellent!

.Lovely, well maintained site with easy access. It is clear a lot of recent work has taken place and the new waste facilities are excellent. There is some road noise at times but we didn't find it intrusive. The owners are very helpful and still have plans to improve the site further. A great find!!

Still one of the Best

Returned to the site after an absence of 10 months. Site has new electrics, new waste point, new water point and lighting at night to each pitch if required. What hasn't changed is the friendliness and outgoing demeanor of the owners Peter and Jazz. The noise from the road has been tackled by a small embankment and the whole site is one to enjoy. The nearest cash-point is at the COOP at Bungay and as before largest store is at Beccles. The Thursday market at Bungay is small but worth a visit for fresh fruit and veg, artisan bread and fresh fish. No local meats or cheeses though. To quote the infamous words of Arnie ' We'll be back !!!!'

A friendly site with tremendous views across the Waveney Valley.

We were pleased that the new owners kept the site going. This is one we use as a weekend getaway since it is only a couple of hours from home. The road is the only downside since it can be a bit noisy at times. If you want to walk to a pub then yes go towards The Locks and then keep on a further half mile into Geldeston where the Wherry Inn will be a bit quieter but still with an excellent range of food and more importantly beers (Adnams). There are plenty of walks across the meadows and along the River Waveney to Beccles and if you are fortunate to use a bus pass then the bus route to Yarmouth will get you to St Olaves and the Herringfleet Marshes. The bus stop is just along the road towards Bungay just opposite/adjacent to the former council houses. Best shopping is in Beccles where there is a large Tesco's but there is also a medium sized CoOp in Bungay. All in all a lovely site to relax and chill out at with no need to go too far if at all.

Lovely site

A very warm welcome from the new owners, they've only been here a month. Very helpful and friendly. Wonderful views, good accessibility to nearby towns and places of interest. We especially liked the lovely walk across the fields to the "locks" pub. Only a 25 minutes walk, good food & a gorgeous quaint little pub. A little work in progress at this site, they have ideas to make improvements. Well worth a visit.

Lovely Waveney views

The current owners have just taken over this CL and couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. This is a lovely spot on the Angles Way between Beccles and Bungay and the cycle into the latter along Low Road is super. The Green Dragon is a draw if you like great beer but Bungay is a lovely town anyway. River walks in Beccles are well worth a look. 4G works well here and TV reception is good. Don't ring the landline but use the mobile number on the website to book. There are plans to move the water point and CDP to be a bit more accessible but it's perfectly adequate as it is now by the house. Jasmine and Peter are a lovely young couple and we wish them well.
