My Favourite site in the UK

We stayed for the whole of September 2019 and still didn’t want to go home! It’s taken time to get into doing the review due to illness. We’ve been going to this site for a few years now and always more than once a year! Lucy and John are lovely people and have often accommodated us at short notice. They are not in your face all the time making you feel like you’re being watched! Just turn up pitch and do your own thing. The grass is always beautifully cut and not left with cuttings to walk in your van. The views are amazing, just very “Constable“ especially down the little Lane where we walk our dog. On this occasion we stayed on the site a lot as it was such lovely weather and we were very comfortable. I swim every day when I’m there and it’s an added bonus to have the pool to myself, it’s lovely. There is ice cream to purchase from a fridge in the laundry, they make it here and it’s delicious! The local town of Halesworth is really traditional with a pedestrian only town centre. There is everything you need including Chemist, Doctor, Vet and Garden Centre, and if you like white wine the co-op keep it all in the fridge so it’s already chilled! There is an amazing butcher in nearby Bramfield who also sells other stuff. We like to travel to Southwold and Aldeburgh (old charm) and a little bit further to Lowestoft (worth it). Above all though we come here for the site, we have spent days on end not even going out and we love it! You can be sure of a friendly atmosphere that is open and not overbaring: but I don’t know why I’m doing this review because what I really want is to keep it all to myself!

Disappointing

A beautiful placed site and well maintained! On arrival for us and friends with their van, it was overbooked so we had no elec first night. Following morning friends had to re pitch after a van left so we then had electric. Unfortunately no sign of owners. Pool is lovely and looked after. Sloping pitch which we was aware of... but very windy all week. Not owners fault, Still beautiful views. When you click on link for website.. swimming pool for hire, games room and astro pitch. According to owner because we don't pay £1000 a week on cottage and only pay £15 A night we are not allowed to use games room or pitch. Slightly belittled! Even thou website states £12 + £1 awning.. it is £15 for a night. Unfortunately 2nd evening farm dog roams free (doesn't like being on lead we were told) helped herself to food from our table! Cottage guests liked exercising their dogs off lead on so field.. no pick up of deposits, or from farm dog! Very them and us unfortunately! We paid for the Sunday evening of leaving day so we didn't have to rush, yet another van turned up! We were entitled to stay till the morning? We paid for it! So again 6 on field plus a private one.. Lucy the owner was supposed to call me re concerns before I left a review... nothing after 3 days, it's a shame because such a beautiful place. Won't be retuning unfortunately......

What a Lovely Place!

We stayed here for almost 2 weeks and had a wonderful time even though the weather wasn't always great. The camping area is huge although the pitches are all at the top of the hill. At first we pitched our van sideways so that we could sit out looking at the view across the valley. Unfortunately, we had to turn it round after the first night as the incline made our step too high and we kept falling into the van! SO bring chocks but don't let it put you off because it is fabulous! Not mentioned in their listing and one of the things we always look for also is the lovely lawned grass, very well kept and very short! Certainly no need for a groundsheet! Once we had turned our van around we were very happy with the outcome. We faced the evening sunset and there were some spectacular skies. There was only one slight downside. The owner of the site moved a caravan onto a pitch from storage for someone coming in. At the time we said nothing as we expected the owners to change the position but when they arrived they did not have a tow ball and we discovered that they never tow their caravan. As such they were too close to us, (all pitches had numbers and everyone was pitched directly on the number but when the owner sited this new van he put it about 4 metres our side of their number so it felt cramped). Fortunately we were leaving next morning so it wasn't too bad and it taught us a lesson to not assume and point things out at the time. We hired the swimming pool for an hour during out second week and wished we had done it sooner to get another swim in! It is a lovely pool and a great asset to have on a site. Our main love of this site though has to go to the surrounding countryside that you have on all sides and the distance from the road. We will definitely be back! Our thanks to John and Lucy but also and not least to Dave who made us laugh and could not do enough for us!

Fantastic Site

This is our 10th visit to this beautiful quiet CL it's a large well mown site with lovely countryside views, easy access to slightly sloping pitches with easy levelling. Use of toilet and shower and also a large indoor swimming pool by arrangement with owners for a small extra charge. There is excellent walking and cycling from the site around quiet country lanes and well marked footpaths. The owners are very friendly and helpful and also have barn cottages that are availabe to rent for non caravaning friends or family.

Great Site

Stayed for one night but very impressed by the site. Grass was well trimmed and short, welcomed by the sight of an owl sitting on the fence and great views over the surrounding area. Site is on a slope so some leveling is required, water tap handy and the chemical toilet point across the field but not too far away. Grey water dumped into the hedge at the bottom of site. Overall a great site and we will definitely visit again.
