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.
