Why stay here ...

Garden House CL Site is situated just on the outskirts of Tattingstone Village. Our site is set within the grounds of our home. We are an adult only, dog friendly site. Although dogs must be on a lead within the site area at all times, we do have a fully fenced in secure area where you can let your dog’s run free and enjoy a game of ball.

We have five grass pitches, set in a lovely meadow. All pitches are spacious, level and well drained, and have 16 amp hook up points. Our information hut will provide you with lots of ideas and suggestions for days out in the local area.

We have an area of approximately three quarters of an acre which we have left for wildlife to enjoy, which you are free to explore. This area is not fenced, in order to allow for wildlife to come and go as they please. We have an abundance of birds and wildlife that visit the garden which include Mistle Thrush/Song Thrush/Green & spotted Woodpeckers/Gold Finches and Skylarks just to name a few. If you are lucky, you may see Deer, Fox, Badgers and our little owl.

There are many countryside walks from the site to explore. Alton water is a short walk away, or you could take the short drive to the café/visitor area and hire a bike or learn how to paddle board. The White Horse Tattingstone is a pleasant forty minute walk. This is a very old traditional Pub, or you could try the excellent Kings Head at Stutton or Brantham Bull in Brantham both being just a few miles drive.

There are many attractions to visit, including Jimmy’s Farm (as seen on tv), Suffolk Food Hall, Dedham Vale and Flatford Mill (Constable Country), or Colchester Zoo. You could also visit Snape Maltings, Sutton Hoo, Minsmere RSPB Reserve, Woodbridge, or Helmingham Hall Gardens and Beth Chatto Gardens just to mention a few.

Access to our site is directly from the A137, so easy access. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Garden House.

WOW WHAT A FIND

Garden House
This is the best CL we have been to its immaculately kept there is a lovely wildlife/dog walk plus a secure dog area where they can have a run with a few dog toys in it. A little hut full of information for the local area plus dvds jigsaws books spent ages in there. Some plants for sale outside the hut as well. Loads of walks in the area Alton Water walkable distance for paddle boarding etc. Owners very friendly and accommodating choose where you pitch and which way round. Price an amazing £16 a night which im sure will have to go up with electric prices so high and so it should. Only downside it was so hot we couldn't do much but what better place to not do much we loved it just over half hour from home this is going to be a regular for us.

CL Perfection

Garden House
Stayed here for 12 nights as a starting point for a seven-week trip having just retired. Well what can we say about this wonderful CL and its owners Mandy and Martin. The site has been designed by caravanner’s who have used their experience and knowledge to create a perfect environment to ensure you have a wonderful stay. When we arrived and went through the gates the first thing we said to each other was ‘Wow’. The site is immaculate with good sized, well-spaced pitches arranged on two sides of a very spacious ¾ acre paddock, with a beautiful flowerbed on one side. The service area i.e. fresh water, grey water, chemical toilet disposal and recycling is well designed and cleaned on a daily basis. For dog owners there is a fenced off exercise area where the dogs can run free. There is also an additional area equally as big as the site that has been left wild with a mown pathway with seats where anyone can wander. An information hut is provided with leaflets on the area plus second-hand books and homemade jams to buy for a small donation to charity. There are also Mandy’s home-grown plants to purchase. We found Mandy and Martin to be the perfect hosts who went out of their way to make us feel at home, so much so we can’t wait to visit again and are planning a longer stay next year. As others have stated this CL must be a contender for CL of the Year and we have already submitted our vote. In our opinion if the Garden House does not win there must be something seriously wrong with the process.

What an amazing and friendly site, from our arrival to our departure you were treated as if it was your own garden. The site has been extremely well thought about prior to building. The owners keep the site in an immaculate condition, tending to plants and site to a very high standard. Like the rest of the reviews I agree with "should be site of the year". A must visit for anyone wanting a lovely peaceful break. We loved the enclosed dog field allowing our dogs to run freely without having to worry. Mandy & Martin were great hosts,

Candidate For CL Of The Year

Garden House
we booked Garden House CL in January 2022 seeing it was a new cl in the Caravan and Motorhome magazine and it looked just wonderful, we were not disappointed, on arrival nice wide entrance to the double gates leading to the cl, Mandy came out to greet us and show us the facilities and showed us the pitches, The grass was recently cut and the loose cuttings taken away, The recycle bins and the doggy bin were emptied every day, There is an enclosed area for your pet to exercise in or for a different walk there is a large paddock you can use which has been cut in different ways to give a wild nature walk my two dogs loved it, We loved this place so much we were lucky to be able to stay another week, Mandy and Martin are incredible hosts they make you feel so welcome we are going to recommend Garden House for CL of the year WILL WE BE BACK YOU BET WE WILL, thankyou Mandy and Martin for a wonderful holiday and Roscoe and Murphy say thankyou for your daily cuddles YORKSHIRE DAVE👍
