Brilliant Site

Waterpump CL
We have recently spent 5 nights for the first time here, together with friends. The layout is excellent and reflects the careful thought and hard work put in by Sarah and David to make it so appealing. We received a very friendly welcome from Sarah and her enthusiasm for wanting us to enjoy our stay was very apparent. The short 5 minute off road walk to the local pub is very handy, clearly marked and kept clear by David. They supply information of several walking routes across the fields. The site is very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We had a great time and will visit again.

Tranquil, spotless and welcoming

Waterpump CL
Very friendly and welcoming owners. Sarah offered advice on best places to go and best walks for dogs. Dog walking from site and off lead paddock available as well. Spotlessly clean and well kept. Convenient for loads of places. We visited Sizewell, Aldeburgh, Saxmundham and Framlingham. Indian takeaway delivered to site was a bonus. We will return.
