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.

Great stay

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 .

Lovely, quiet site, in an equally lovely and quiet area.

Specious grass site, with very large pitches and a very welcoming owner. A walk around the local lanes or into Bungay recommended. Road access to the coast easy with parking for motorhomes at Southwold possible. Will be coming back again!

Good for cycling

A very nice site with short mown grass and all the clippings removed! Access into the site is a little bit tight and needs care round one particular tree trunk but no real issues. As previously mentioned pitches are large and all pretty flat, you should only need to ramp if you are particular which direction you face (caravans). The owners we're great, repeatedly telling us we could stay late if we wished and printing off a helpful information sheet on our arrival. A weather warning for wind was in place and they offered to put us up in the house if we had any trouble during our stay. The site position is fantastic, it is a quiet rural site with good views yet with access to a A road within less than a mile but it's not busy and we couldn't hear it. Immediately outside the site you are in the midst of a huge number of lanes giving you loads of choices for walking or cycling (including national cycle route 1). We cycled 6 miles into Beccles and encountered about 5 cars, you can also get into Bungay on the lanes. If we are ever in the area again this would be our first choice site.

Comment from the Club:

Many thanks for your review and we are delighted you had such a great time at this lovely CL Site. The owner's have been in touch to advise they have now removed a tree and improved the access to the site.

What a gem of a site

We have just returned from an impromptu 2 night stay at Holly Heights. The access drive is perhaps a little tight but no problem if taken steadily, the next problem was where to pitch, each pitch is so big and with such lovely views it's difficult to make a decision. Karen the owner had said find an empty pitch and pitch facing whichever direction you like, to be honest it's 2 -3 times the size of an average CL, we pitched in the normal manor parked to the left and with an awning up there was still room both sides for another unit between us and our neighbours !!! The grass is nicely kept and the site surrounded by wild flower meadows which you look over to rolling Suffolk countryside, the facilities are basic but completely adequate and kept clean and very tidy. Jane and Richard are very friendly but leave you to enjoy the peace and quiet. Bungay is 10 mins away and Southwold 25, there are numerous local walks and one of the Sustrans cycle routes goes past the 'door'. This site is very close to home but none the less felt like a proper break away, we will be back many times I think.
