A Peaceful Gem

Briarwood Farm
We have just returned from a 6 day stay at this lovely, peaceful site. We were given a very friendly welcome from Mrs Wrench who let us set up before coming back later to explain everything. The site is easy to find and the access is good (when you get to Judith Ave just keep going until you come to the track, the site is at the end of it). The field has plenty of room for the 5 pitches, plenty of space for all, it is surrounded by trees but these don't impede on light. Water, waste, rubbish, loo etc are very well organised and clean with easy access from the field. It is close to local towns and attractions with plenty of footpaths and easy cycling all around. There is a pub and shop in the village which is just a walk away. I would definitely recommend this site and would love to go back if only to watch the stars at night with no light pollution and listen to the owls and pheasants in the woods.

Not suitable for motorhomes

Briarwood Farm
Unfortunately we booked this site just using the App where it states that the site is suitable for motor homes, whereas on the website it says that it’s not! This is mainly because the owner doesn’t like Motorhomes filling with water from the one tap with a hosepipe. Otherwise the site was very peaceful and pleasant within reach of Aldeburgh, Snape, and Dunwich and we had a very enjoyable break there.

Lovely site

Briarwood Farm
We greatly enjoyed our short stay on this lovely site, which is quiet and tucked away, yet has easy access. Wonderful woodland walks which link into longer sections to take you to the coast. We were warmly welcomed and can really recommend this well cared for site. Many thanks from Nigel & Gill

Peaceful Site

Briarwood Farm

A very neat site, with easy access to the coastal villages of Suffolk. The site is close to horse paddocks and the owner's house, but considering it is accessed down a residential road, it is really peaceful. Many sites we have used are in rural locations, but suffer from traffic noise; this site is really quiet. It has a large grass area for caravans, allowing good separation between caravans. The water and waste facilities are off the site and adjacent to the house and really easy to access. I'd recommend using a hookup position closest to the house to ease filling and emptying. The only problem we (and the other four caravans) experienced was the electric supply tripping on two consecutive evenings. This may have been caused by one caravan using excess power, but it shouldn't affect all caravans; we have never experienced this on the 30 or so CLs we have used. If this issue can be rectified I would thoroughly recommend this site.

Response from the Club:

Many thanks for your review and we are delighted that you had a wonderful time at this lovely CL Site. The owner has been in touch to advise they had the EHU looked at after your visit and can confirm all is in working order with no issues found. No other member has since experienced any issue so it may well be that the electrics were overloaded which caused it to trip. We are sorry this affected the enjoyment of your stay.

Nothing has changed

Briarwood Farm
As there hasn't been a review for the past couple of years I am updating our last one to say we have been back and nothing has changed it is still as perfect as before. Big pitches, short grass and friendly owners. Plenty of room for children to play without disturbing other caravanners. Easy access to Aldeburgh with a great fish and chip shop and wonderful gelato shop and two pubs that do food nearby.
