Why stay here ...

The site, which has been open for over 30 years, is situated to the west of the A140 with very good access. There is room to pull off the highway before driving through the wide gates onto the site from the road. 

Thornham Parva is a small quiet hamlet of around 25 houses, and there is also a Grade 1 listed picturesque thatched church.  

The site has electric hook ups, together with water and all the necessary waste disposal facilities. Free Wi-Fi. The site is level and lawned, friendly pet sheep graze nearby, but not on the site. Children and pets are always welcome. The site is open from 1 March to 31 October each year. Motorhomes and caravans catered for. There is plenty of space available for awnings and no extra charges for pets, awnings, extra vehicles, visitors, number of people, etc.  

The site is situated in a beautiful part of Suffolk, with the historic market town of Eye just 2.5 miles to the east and close by are 12 miles of footpaths known as the Thornham Walks. The site is well situated to explore the surrounding area ie the coast, such as Southwold or Aldeburgh or to the west Thetford Forest, and is almost equal distance from Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Norwich. It is an ideal area for cycling. Leaflets are available on local attractions, walks, and cycle routes. The market town of Diss just across the county border in Norfolk has several large supermarkets and smaller retail outlets.

Fishing is available at a few locations, some less than a mile from the site, with a golf course within five miles.

There are several country pubs and restaurants in the locality, some within walking distance.

Children are welcome.

Should you choose to stay at the Tandem House Club CL, you will receive a warm and friendly welcome and can be assured of a very restful time.

Peacefull overnight stop

Stayed at this charming little site overnight after a friends birthday party in a nearby village. Lovely level field with electric hook ups. The site has easy access from the A140. Mrs. Moore was very welcoming and gave us a useful information leaflet on the area. There is even free wifi - something of a rarity! The Bull Auberge restaurant with rooms is a couple of minutes walk up the lane towards the main road. Thoroughly recommend.

Well worth a visit

We have just enjoyed a weekend at Tandem House where we were greeted by the lovely owner, Christine, who couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The site is a short distance from the busy A140, however we felt as if we were miles from anywhere. The pretty, small town of Eye is a pleasant 2 mile cycle away and Diss six miles away. There are also miles of country lanes to walk or cycle around with several places to eat and drink nearby. The poor 'Peace and Tranquility' rating is only because Christine had to mow the grass before her next visitors arrived on the pitch and she did this whilst we were having our evening meal outside. Also on the Sunday, a nearby meadow was being mowed which lasted most of Sunday morning. They both apologised for the disturbance and we certainly wouldn't let this put us off coming here again. Overall a wonderful CL site and well worth a visit.

May Escape

Excellent site, just as described, even including the friendly sheep, Christine made everyone very welcome. I booked at short notice and managed to get a short (4day) break in, and catch up with all my old Suffolk friends and neighbours, whilst having a stressfree stay, apart from a flat battery (my fault), but another caravaner came to my aid with his battery charger. Strongly recommended well maybe not too strongly or it will be oversubscribed!

A really lovely CL

We have just spent a few days on this lovely site and we will definitely return on our next visit to Suffolk. The owner, Christine, welcomed us and was really helpful throughout our stay. The site is very peaceful, overlooking a flower filled garden. Good area for walking or for driving further to the coast. There were also some really friendly people in the other caravans who made our stay even more enjoyable.
