Why stay here ...

Fynn Valley Golf Club is set in the rolling countryside of rural Suffolk in the charming village of Witnesham, roughly two miles north of Ipswich. The site is situated down a long track across part of the golf course. It is in a tranquil spot overlooking the golf course and forms part of the protected river valley, which is home to many wildlife species including barn owls, deer, nightingales and many more.

Due to the rural location of the certified location (CL), there are no electric hook ups. However, the site does provide running water, hard standing and a waste disposal point. 500 yards back up the track is the main golf club complex. CL visitors are very welcome to use the showers, toilets and bar and restaurant facilities that are located here. There is also a battery charging point and a golf shop stocking cold drinks.

The golf club is a friendly, family-run club and in addition to the picturesque parkland 18 hole course, the club also offers a 9 hole course, 22 bay floodlit covered golf range, practice greens and bunkers, golf lessons, two golf shops and extensive clubhouse facilities set in converted Edwardian farm buildings. CL visitors can take advantage of discounted golf by paying members' guest rates instead of full price. Club hire is available for the 9 hole course and range if you do not have your own clubs.

The Courtyard Bar and Valley Restaurant offer daily bar meals, a delicious evening supper menu Wednesday to Saturday and home cooked Sunday lunches. CL visitors are very welcome to enjoy a meal or drink at the complex. These can either be consumed in the sheltered Courtyard or on the Terrace providing fantastic views of the golf course in warmer weather.

Due to the proximity of the golf course, children must be closely supervised at all times. Dogs are welcome on a lead and the site is adjacent to the Fynn Valley Walk, a footpath and bridleway stretching from Witnesham to the Deben at Martlesham and Woodbridge, which is perfect for exercising your pets.

Conveniently situated for the county town of Ipswich, Fynn Valley is also easily accessible from Woodbridge, Framlingham, Felixstowe and Stowmarket and the coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold, each of which offer a range of attractions that can be enjoyed by all tastes.

An unusual but delightful CL site.

Spent four nights here at the start of a baking hot July and really enjoyed it. "Pitching" (pun-intended) on a golf course is an interesting feeling but the site was enjoyable and the ability to use the onsite cafe was a definite bonus. There was very little noise from the golfers and at night the site was silent. Toilets and showers are usually for the golfers and were almost hotel standard (though we only used them whilst visiting the cafe). If you are into golf then you can use the golf course and if, like us, you're not then the driving range is a fun and inexpensive way to spend an hour or so. As usual I've made a short video showing off the site which you can view here https://youtu.be/PXPqEgSvhhw (Please like and subscribe and hit the bell if you found it useful and would like to see more of my CL videos.)

This could be oh so easilly an excellent site...... if only

There is an enormous amount of building work going on at the golf club and this work has resulted in the access tracks to the CL be more than somewhat bumpy, but no doubt as soon as this work is completed the track will be made smooth once more. At the site itself, which overlooks the fifth fairway and 6th tee there is quite literally masses of room for you to pitch your outfit and the dog walking from here is truly excellent. I have one major grouse and that is the waste disposal facilities, the chemical disposal point is fine, however there was only one single dustbin, so how on the earth could anyone split their rubbish up for recycling? !! The showers in the old clubhouse are old but more than adequate and they will no doubt be improved on enormously when the new clubhouse is opened in a few months time. We will no doubt be stopping here when we are in the area again.

A great peaceful weekend

Just had a great weekend at Fynn Valley Golf Club. The site is located on the far side of the golf club next to the 6th Tee. A beautiful location with some great walks close by into Witnesham one way and Tuddenham the other. You can use the showers in the main complex along with the casual bar. The site itself has the basics, water, CDP and bins, the ground is level and well kept. No electric hook up but with a solar panel on board who needs it! We will definitely be back.

A LOVELY CLEAN AND WELL CARED FOR C.L.

WE HAVE JUST SPENT TWO NIGHTS AT THE FYNN VALLEY CARAVAN PARK AND CANNOT RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY ENOUGH. FROM BOOKING TO DEPARTURE THE STAFF WERE HELPFUL AND POLITE. WE ENJOYED A NICE LUNCH IN THE BAR AND IN THE EVENING WENT TO THE RESTAURANT WHERE THERE WAS ENTERTAINMENT AND A TWO COURSE MEAL FOR £10.00 PER PERSON. HAD WE HAD TIME WE COULD HAVE HAD A ROUND OF GOLF AT A REDUCED PRICE AND THERE WAS ALSO A PAR 3 COURSE. WE VISITED THE SHOTLEY GATE, SUTTON HOO (NATIONAL TRUST) AND THE WATERFRONT AT IPSWICH, ALL VERY INTERESTING OUTINGS WITHIN EASY REACH.
