Peaceful

Just had 16 nights at Moat Farm and we couldn't have picked a more peaceful site. Miles from no-where the caravan site, as others have said, is on an apple orchard. We stayed just a week or so from the apples being harvested. Good sized level site, plenty of room for 5 vans with a more than adequate toilet and shower room. The last few hundred yards to the entrance is on a narrow road, with few passing places, but we were fine coming and going. Good base for discovering the area and there's plenty of walks or cycling that can be had direct from the site. We'd certainly stay again. Thank you a lovely stay Henry.

Great holiday, great position, great people

We had a lovely 15 days holiday in September. The apple pickers were all busy, but were all very friendly, and we enjoyed talking to them. The site is fine, plently of room, even when all 5 caravans were on site. The toilet and shower were immaculate, the only problem sometimes with the strength of the water. Henry was very friendly, helpful, nothing was too much trouble, we ended up staying an extra night as we were due to go home when the gales were horendous, but that was no problem, in fact we were advised not to attempt to leave. The village of Debenham is lovely, it was great to have a fantastic butcher, the best butchers I have been in for a long time. Where ever you went the people were very friendly. We look forward to returing next summer for another great holiday.

Peace and quiet!

Lovely site, smack in the middle of an orchard, at the end of March the trees were bare, but in the coming weeks they should be full of blossom. Owners were very friendly and I imagine very helpful if needed. Nice walks from the site, footpath goes straight through the farm. Very nice toilet...spotless....... If you want peace and quiet, this site will do it.

Unspoilt countryside

We've just had 9 days of peace and quiet. The views of the apple orchard and fields are stunning. The owners Katie and Henry are really friendly and they were very busy with the apple harvest so we didn't see much of them. But we're contactable if needed. The toilet and shower reminded us of a wooden sauna building, fairly new and still smelling of that wonderful wood. Moat farm press their own apple juice, which I highly recommend, just like drinking fresh apples, not like the shop bought stuff. This must be a secret CL because for the remainder of the week after our friends had gone home we had the place to ourselves. Will definitely return.

Almost no sound but the birds

Moat Farm is absolutely peaceful, and very well kept. Almost the only sound is that of the birds although, being a working farm, there is the very occasional sound of a tractor.The site is quite flat with a few small undulations but nothing to worry about. It has an excellent little toilet / shower block which is kept spotless, not a spider in sight. The water pressure could be a little higher but this is an area problem not limited to the CL. Even so, an Aquaroll fills in a couple of minutes or so. If I had to find a complaint it would be the access track which is almost a quarter mile long and is, unfortunately, a bit rough in places. It also has a couple of very tight bends but they caused no problem even to a long twin axle caravan. The owners, Henry and Kate are lovely and the CL is a credit to them.
