Why stay here ...

Luke and Nic look forward to welcoming you to their CL.

Bucks Farm is located an easy 11 mile drive to the beautiful coastal town of Southwold and 12 miles from Walberswick.

Bucks Farm Certificated Location is situated in the rural, quiet and beautiful Blythe Valley in the village of Cookley. Two miles from the town of Halesworth and 10 miles from the unspoilt Suffolk heritage coastline. Ideally positioned for that ’away from it all’ experience but with facilities on the doorstep should you need them. Adults and well behaved dogs are very welcome. The caravan pitches are laid to grass. The site has electric hook-up points (16A), mains water and a chemical waste disposal point. Dustbins are provided for both Recycling & Non-recycling waste.

We are ideally located for those wanting to explore both the Suffolk countryside and coastline, with the un-spoilt seaside towns of Southwold, Aldeburgh, Warbleswick and Dunwich only a short drive away. Framlingham Castle, Bury St Edmunds Great Yamouth and Norwich are all within reach. Bird watching at Minsmere and at the site. The cultural world of Aldeburgh music and the yearly food festival held there are popular events as are the Heaveningham Hall fireworks and annual Country fair. The latter two both of are a mere two miles away and not to be missed.

There are good pubs and restaurants within a couple of miles and the close by town of Halesworth has rich variety of interesting shops, green grocers, local butchers, fair trade shops and places to eat, drink coffee and watch the world go by along the pedestrianized thoroughfare.

Fishing, golf and horse riding are all available within a couple of miles drive.

Wonderful Week

Bucks Farm CL
It isn't often that I find a CL deserves 5☆ but I think this one does. We spent a week here and loved it, mind you the lovely weather helped. 🙂The CL is easy to find if you follow the directions on the website, with only the last half mile or so single track with passing places. Access to the CL is through a wide gate and the gate code was provided when we booked. The field is large but it does slope so levelling blocks are required. The pitches are along the top and down one side of the site to make the most of the sun almost all day. The owner Luke pops down to check all ok and will point out local walks of which there are quite a few of varying lengths directly from the site. All facilities are very good and located by the gate. Halesworth is a couple of miles away and well worth a visit, there is a co-op, with fuel, but the best shops are along the pedestrian thoroughfare, especially the bakery, I can recommend the Cheese and Onion Foccacia. 😉Car parking is free for the first hour too. We also used the White Hart pub which is dog friendly. We also had a meal at the Huntingfield Arms in Huntingfield which Luke recommended, and it was very good. The coast is approximately 10 miles and we visited Dunwich, Southwold, Walberswick all are lovely. I can also recommend a visit to The Suffolk Punch centre, a bit further away. We thought all the places we visited had good Covid precautions in place. This is a lovely CL and one will will definitely use again.

Silence is Golden

Bucks Farm CL
I feel this cl needs a new review after 2 years since the last. Being beach Boys fans in our hay day prompted the title. A very quiet cl as it is quite remote and is adult only also without light pollution, it is very dark. Unfortunately we had to endure a full moon at the time of our visit. A very large field of close mown meadow grass with pitches of about 20 metres apart. The field slopes steeply at the top end where two pitches face down the slope (see site Photos) the other three being at right angles and follow the line of the wooden fence to a more level part of the site near the bottom opposite the entry gate. These pitches would be easiest to level the van from side to side. The site is easy to find, just follow the directions in the book. The final ½ mile is narrow but with good forward vision and plenty of passing places. Entry to Bucks Farm is the second entrance to the cl not the first. There is a padlocked entry gate which uses a combination lock. Make sure you are given the security code, we weren’t but a quick phone call sorted that. There are several public footpaths from the site which would be good for shorter walks and also for dog owners if free from live stock. One of the things we liked the most is the location. It is very central to Suffolk whether it be coast or the broads, nowhere was too far. Halesworth is well worth exploring. It has everything you need, Co-op for food and fuel but best for groceries where the independent small shops which still seem to thrive in the town. There are three pubs and several coffee shops too. All in all a site that we would almost certainly be happy to use again only next time it will be for longer

Great cl

Bucks Farm CL
Stopped at this site towards the end of June 2017. One of the quietest cl's we have stopped at. Very spacious pitches so you don't hear your neighbours. The family who own the site and live nearby are very friendly and helpful . We are keen cyclists and found the area great with a multitude of quiet lanes for rides out and a nice ride to the nearby coast. We don't normally leave reviews but felt this site warranted a mention, we would definitely return for another visit.
