Why stay here ...

Come just a short way out of Bungay and you will find us on a quiet country road in a beautiful rural setting with longreaching views over adjacent farm land. Holly Heights is a generously sized site with plenty of space to pitch up with ample surrounding meadow space. The site is away from our house with a natural shrub and tree boundary and is set back from the road. We love the sense of space, peace and quiet that the area has. In the summer we have lots of swallows who come back yearly to our barn and you are likely to see the odd bird of prey and barn owl flying past. The road is quiet enough to take a stroll and discover some of the local public rights of way or follow the Angles Way to explore further. We hope you love our site as much as we do.

We are well situated for the National Trust site at Dunwich Heath. Or maybe Dunwich beach and its lost city history and the Abbey ruins. Blythburgh church with the devil's claw marks or slightly further afield Framlingham castle or Snape Maltings and a walk along the river bank or to see a show. We are conveniently situated for a day trip to Southwold or crabbing at Walberswick and just down the road is the fantastic aircraft museum at Flixton.

What a wonderful site with the most spacious pitch

Holly Heights

We had a week at Holly Heights during early September. We were blessed with lovely weather but if you prefer to sit by your van and relax then, apart from some distant occasional traffic noise, this is the perfect CL on which to do just that. Karen and Richard are both attentive and very friendly without being overbearing or intrusive.

The lovely large grass pitches are almost level and very well kept and, as long as your unit remains roughly central, then you can pitch at whatever angle you like. It would be very difficult or remis to encroach on a neighbours pitch here. The areas around the perimeter of the site are allowed to grow wild to attract wildlife, but there are short dog walks carefully cut around the site to allow for those early morning or late evening necessary wanderings! There is even a picnic bench in an area that catches the very last of the evening sun and views across open fields from all pitches it seems.

Karen is lovely, cheerful and helpful. A folder can be provided on reception for each pitch which details all necessary shops, emergency services etc. and also various walks around the area. Karen even offered the use of their tree sheltered front garden areas to sit in if the heat of the sun got too much for us! Recycling is encouraged and COVID safety was very good. Excellent water pressure at all service points and it must be 16amp electricity as we never tripped out once, despite forgetting to switch off something when boiling the kettle for example.

Bungay and Beccles are both nearby with some very good cafe's, a few pubs and good restaurants. There is an hotel in Beccles with riverside seating which provided a lovely few hours watching various watercraft plod by over a pint. We spent several days driving up the coast to explore the wonderful East Norfolk beaches of Happisburgh (pronounced Haysborough), California, Sea Palling and Winterton. All best explored when the tide is out, most are dog friendly and allow several hours exploring and beach combing.

Going 'down South, Southwold is just over half an hours drive away and always well worth a visit with the lovely Aldeburgh not much further on should you prefer.

We will be back and look forward to some winter time on such a lovely site. Highly recommended.

What a lovely tranquil spot

Holly Heights
We had a really lovely peaceful stay at Holly Heights, our first time there it will not be our last. Karen and Richard were very welcoming and informative and we would recommend this "adults only" site to anyone who likes the CL principle with the addition of an electric hook-up. K+M from Shirley, Surrey.

Outstanding site

Holly Heights
Just finishing a short stay at this wonderful site. Beautiful views across open Suffolk countryside with plenty of wildlife to catch your eye as the evenings settle. The site is spacious and very well kept. Seen perhaps the biggest hare I have ever seen. The owners, Karen and Richard, are lovely and go out of their way to be as helpful as possible. You could really ask for nothing more.

Great stay

Holly Heights
Just returned from Holly Heights.... Our first time away in our motorhome. A lovely, clean and peaceful site. Pitches are very generous and had open views across the countryside. Lovely circular walk around the quiet roads, takes about an hour and another lovely walk to Bungay . Karen, Thank you for your friendly, approachable and helpful welcome . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definately return again. Jenny and Simon .
