Why stay here ...

Our lovely quiet secluded site is perfect for a relaxing break. It is level, well maintained, and the facilities regularly cleaned. Each pitch has its own drinking water supply and the service point is well designed and easy to use. We have lovely views over meadows and fields to woods owned by the RSPB, (Hintlesham Great, Little and Ramsey woods), and Wolves Wood, which is open to the public. There are lovely walks through the woods and surrounding area and there are superb walks along the Orwell and Stour estuaries, and the Suffolk coast. The nearest point on the National Cycle Route is just half a mile away.

We have many attractions and beautiful towns and villages within easy reach. Hadleigh, (3 Miles) and Lavenham, (14 Miles), and many other of the local villages, grew in medieval times from the riches of the wool trade. Hadleigh has a fine church and guildhall, and a unique Deanery tower. Lavenham is probably the most famous of the wool towns. With its church and many timber framed buildings, it is definitely worth a visit. We are close by the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, better known as "Constable Country". John Constable was born at East Bergholt, (7 miles), and many of his famous paintings including the Haywain, are scenes from Flatford, (8 miles), Dedham (8 miles) and the surrounding area. Boats to row on the river can be hired at Flatford and Dedham. Other notable villages are Kersey, with its ford at the centre of the village, and Long Melford, with Melford Hall, (National Trust) and Kentwell Hall. Also well worth a visit is Pin Mill, on the shores of the River Orwell estuary, where each year Thames barges are raced, also the start location of the adventures of the children in Arthur Ransome's novel, "We Didn't Mean To Go To Sea". If you love golf, there are two fine courses within 3 miles.

Suffolk has a vast wealth of food and drink producers. From beer, to cider and wine and lager. There are a number of micro breweries and award winning farm shops, including Jimmy's Farm, (TV personality Jimmy Doherty). There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the area, particularly village pubs. If you wished to treat yourselves to afternoon tea or a fine dining experience, Hintlesham Hall is just 2 miles away.

For your provisions and other facilities Hadleigh has 2 supermarkets, and our county town of Ipswich is 7 miles away.

Just perfect for us

Four nights into our seven night stay at Bungalow Farm, we have realised that we will have to return. Granted we have enjoyed lovely weather, but this place and the area tick all our boxes. Mandy and Bob are excellent hosts without being too much in your face. Mandy was very helpful when we suffered a minor medical emergency and is always on hand to give advice and make suggestions as appropriate. Previous reviewers have already described the facilities which offer everything that we require. The luxury of having your own tap is wonderful, as is the very efficient Wi-fi which comes at no extra charge. The spacious WC is very much appreciated too. The tranquility of the place is difficult to describe adequately but Bungalow Farm is set in a rural location with woodland walking adjacent. The bird life is extensive and as I write this review, a pair of buzzards are soaring overhead. We are hoping for a sighting of the muntjac deer before we reluctantly have to leave. Because of the lovely weather, we haven’t done as much exploring as we might, but nearby Hadleigh is a delightful picturesque wool town. We have already resolved that next time we return, it will be for a fortnight!

Hard to beat.

This was our second visit to Bungalow Farm and again it didn't disappoint.Each pitch is serviced with water and electricity and is set in a meadow with views of fields and woods beyond.An adjacent footpath leads to the woods.The meadow has an open aspect with a few trees for shade. A spotless toilet is available,and in the well stocked information room is the code for free WiFi.Much appreciated!And ,not to be resisted,was a jar of Mandy's lovely jam.A large Morrison is in nearby Hadleigh.We revisited Sudbury,a market town with an old fashioned feel.There is free parking for 3 hours at the Kingfisher Leisure Centre on Station road next Waitrose.For coffee time we found the Mill and sat on the balcony overlooking the water meadows. The wandering cows are straight out of a painting.And of course,Constable country is on the doorstep. Bungalow Farm is a pretty and peaceful site which we look forward to enjoying again very soon.

Perfect for relaxing.

Spent the weekend completely relaxing. This CL site is simply perfect for a complete relaxing break. Bob and Mandy are friendly hosts and have worked hard making this a real gem, it is well look after and facilities are first class . There are lovely walks from the site, but we found it was just lovely to completely relax and recharge our batteries doing nothing but enjoying the weather, the lovely views and many different bird songs. Will definitely be going back soon.

A special find

Bunglelow Farm is one of the most relaxing sites we have been to. A warm welcome awaits you from Bob and Mandy. Although reasonably priced each spacious pitch has its own drinking water supply and electric hook up. A spotless loo, comprehensive info room and views across fields to the woods add to the charm. There is a walk from the site through the woods. If you forget your jam Mandy has a selection of home made in the information room. Just down the road in Hadleigh is a large Morrison.Constable country is on the doorstep and Sudbury, a 30 min drive is well worth exploring, with its varied shops, river, and water meadows. If birdsong is your preferred, dominant sound on a site, Bunglelow Farm is the one for you. You will not be disappointed.
