Why stay here ...

Garnetts Gardens (est 1994) is a local, family-run shop which offers a unique combination of a working nursery, plant centre, farm shop, gift area, cafe and caravan site. Our CL is situated alongside the shop in the picturesque valley of the River Ore, in the village of Hacheston (near Framlingham). It is abundant with wildlife including barn owls, stoats and the occasional otter patrolling the river.

The site itself is flat, with its own entrance and gate. There are both hardstandings and grass pitches, which makes us accessible in all weather conditions. The site also benefits from additional parking facilities.

Each of the 5 bays has its own electrical point and plenty of space for awnings, as well as stunning views across the valley, overlooking farm meadows and Parham Church. There is also an emptying point, mains water and a dustbin area with a recycling bin available onsite.

We are a dog-friendly site with a number of walks starting directly from outside your door.

Despite not having a WC on the caravan site itself, during shop opening hours there are toilet facilities available for use, which are suitable for baby changing and those with disabilities. Free WiFi is also available at our shop.

The farm shop is only 100 yards away and stocked will all of the local produce you need for your stay including milk, eggs, bread, cakes and biscuits as well as tea, coffee and newspapers. However, if you fancy enjoying your holiday to the full and can't be bothered to cook then that is no problem, as our cafe serves breakfast, lunch and a number of homemade cakes. We also have a number of gifts for you to take back for friends and family.

The central location of our site makes it a fantastic base for exploring the local area either by foot, bicycle or car. Surrounding towns include Framlingham (3 miles), Woodbridge (8.2 miles), Ipswich (16.5 miles), Aldeburgh (11.9 miles), Southwold (21.6 miles) and Norwich (38.8 miles). Likewise, we are a short drive from a number of Suffolk's famous attractions:

Yet another enjoyable stay

We visit this site at least 3 or 4 times a year and have always been made welcome by the family. The owners David and Jennifer always make time for a friendly chat. There is now a cafe in the garden centre which serves delicious food and proper tea in a a teapot. The site is well placed for Framlinghan, Woodbridge, Aldeburgh, Southwold and Ipswich. Would thoroughly recommend this site if visiting Suffolk.

Great weekend

Great weekend, if only the weather could always be this good in September!! This a great site, central to lots of nice places to visit. Dave and staff very welcoming, only down side is road noise, but as we have been there 3 times now it can't be too bad. Many thanks

Enjoyable stay

Had a really great weekend at end of August BH. Site is excellent and really appreciate extra security of the gate. Small drawback is road noise which was probably worsened by it being a busy weekend on the roads. Immaculately clean though moles had enjoyed themselves:-) Would be happy to return but think we would try to pitch further from road side. Thanks for a nice weekend
