Rural Suffolk at its best

Applefield
Compact pitches with just enough room for caravan, awning and car so relies relaxing outside relies on having good neighbours - which we did have on our visit. We were asked for payment 2 days before arrival which is not unusual this year. However, we did expect to meet our hosts at some point but sadly the owners didn’t say hello at any time. We were advised of water, waste and recycling by another unit. Good location for cycling, walking however proved more problematic because footpaths across farmland had not been reinstated and we were left wading through fields of ripening oil seed rape! Friendly and welcoming local pub, The Swan, was serving food - the Sunday roast and subsequent evening meal we had were both excellent! I can thoroughly recommend a visit especially as all such establishments have struggled through COVID.

Lovely, quiet CL

Applefield
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

Applefield
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

Applefield

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.
