Lovely, quiet CL

We're always on the lookout for local haunts for weekend trips, and after deciding last-minute on Friday afternoon to go away for the first weekend in August, we came across this little gem after a couple of previously visited CLs slightly further afield were booked up. And we were so glad we did! The site is literally a 10 minute drive from our house, but we could've been anywhere. The ½ acre meadow is fenced and gated, and offers a lovely view across a further meadow, with sheep-trimmed trees, woodpeckers, and swallows skimming across the grass. Also lovely sunrise views as it appears over the distant trees, and at this time of year at least, sunshine way into the late afternoon/evening. As others have mentioned, the last ½ mile or so is single track road, but ample room for any outfit. Weave your way up the driveway and follow both your nose and the signs, and you will find yourself at the meadow. Access looks a little daunting, but in reality with good positioning there's enough room. Our friends tow with a VW transporter and had no issues getting their large single axle in and out, nor did we with our lengthy single axle. Another couple from much farther afield were finishing up a fortnight's break at the site, and couldn't have been happier with the place. Plenty to explore nearby, lovely walks, local shop and pubs a few minutes drive or 20 minute walk away, and lovely coastline within 40 minutes drive. The owners were both extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating, and we certainly will be back next time we need a quick weekend 'escape' if they can fit us in. Approach from Fressingfield village for the best access.

Very tranquil visit

Just spent 3 nights at this very well kept CL. As others have said if it's peace and quiet you are after then look no further. Very friendly owners and we were also lucky enough to visit whilst the lambs were out in the field. The entrance to the site and the field in particular is quite tight and needs to be negotiated with care. Would also advise using the directions given in the handbook as following the sat nav would have lead us through a very narrow country lane.

Great Stay

Excellent small well kept CL , narrow entrance but no problem with care, I think if one of the trees on the left before gate was removed this be a great help, really nice owners very welcome. If its peace and quite you are after then this is for you. Beautiful counter side to explore. Agree with all the following reviews. Thank you for a great 14 day stay.

Suffolk Gem

This site will set you up for a peaceful, relaxing time away in a beautiful part of Suffolk. Lots of walking and quiet lanes for cycling, a good round trip to the coast is a must! The site is beautifully kept with very helpful owners, we will definitely return.

Fantastic

We love this site. We've been a few times and loved every minute of it. We was fortunate enough to see lambs being born and we also got to bottle feed some. There's fishing on site which is great. Its a Very quiet site in the middle of know where. There's plenty of countryside walks and bike rides to be had. Jo Garrent and Erin are all very welcoming. We look forward to meeting them again.
