Why stay here ...

FISHERS FIELD is a tranquil site set on a 6 acre smallholding on the countryside outskirts of a sleepy suffolk village. Adults, children and pets are welcome, with a request that suitable caution is taken when walking near our bee hives - even though they are not anywhere near the site itself. There are 2 hardstandings with the rest of the site laid to grass. A new heated shower block is available for all-year round use, as well as fresh water and chemical disposal facilities.

There is a co-op supermarket, petrol station and good general shopping in leiston, about 2 miles away, and a waitrose in saxmundham at about 4 miles. We will hand out a contact sheet for local doctors, vets, dentists and other useful contact numbers on your arrival - plus there is a local information board highlighting activities as diverse as go-karting and horse-riding. The owners live on site, so are happy to assist if particular information is needed on the area.

We are 3 miles from the world famous minsmere bird sanctuary which was host to "springwatch", and whose details appear on the ceiling of the equally famous local pub "the eels foot"..proud winner of the pub of the year award. Beautiful seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh are short car journeys away. Miles of coastwalks are nearby, and beach fishing, but if relaxation is your preferred holiday - our site is perfect being away from any roads, and tucked into surrounding countryside - as part of the owners 6 acre small-holding.

The Lion, our local village pub is about 300 yards walk away, where fresh food is served and sometimes live music. A new venture for the new landlord is a monday night tasting session of a number of guest beers - not to be missed, or try the "tapas night" if your visit coincides. Plenty to explore.

Our farmer neighbour sells his own meat, and we provide a shopping list on arrival if you wish to buy locally.

Fantastic site

Stayed for a few weeks and found it to be a very quiet and friendly site. The site owner was extremely helpful and the showers/toilets clean and modern.Lots of wild birds on site. I was working nights nearby and wasn't disturbed once whilst sleeping during the day. Will definitely be staying there again next year. Thanks, Andy

You won't regret it.

We don't normally stay on big sites in the UK and try to use CL's as much as poss. The owners have been hard at work since taking this site over a couple of years ago, I believe 2017 is their first full season. The toilet block consists of two spacious wet rooms each with toilet, shower and sink plus heater. The field itself is situated at the side of the house and is bordered by fields, pheasants in abundance. Underneath the camping field is a network of pipes which supplies the heat to Neils eco house! The field is pretty level (no issues) and some work is scheduled to level some hollows in the winter. My belief is that this lovely site will only get better as the years go on. A lot to do around and about, a plethora of country pubs, museums, walks, good cycling etc. Minsmere reserve is only a few minutes away, with your club card 2 get in for £0, first time we've ever used our membership for that, within Minsmere there are several 2-3 hour walks, saw lots of different birds, take sarnies and binoculars (or hire them for £3), we really enjoyed that. Thorpeness and Aldburgh are lovely places to visit, check out the windmill and House in the Clouds at Thorpeness. Bentwater Cold war Museum is only a short drive away.

As Good as they Say

The previous reviewers ain't wrong. All of the salient points have been mentioned and are correct, although I would add that the field being an old farm field isn't quite as flat as you might initially think. Anyone who has stayed on a farmers field will be aware that the ground is not like a Bowls Green but has ruts in the ground . This is the case here and anyone who doesn't want to find their cutlery on the floor should drive slowly over the grass to their pitch, which are large and well spaced out. The 2 hard standing pitches are accessed over grass but Neil tells me that he hasn't had occasion to pull anyone off the CL yet. Anyway it isn't that difficult to level the outfit without the need for levelling blocks, such is the space afforded to you on the pitch. The owners have planted numerous willow trees around the edge and they will provide some wind protection in time. They don't seem to mind people exercising their dogs over their fields. The owners couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating and we will definitely be returning. It was very nice of them to provide a Marsh Harrier to look at during our stay! We found Wifi signal to be working well and mobile phone reception also good. Not sure about TV as we don't use one.

First visit to a CL Site

We have just returned from a weekend at Fishers Field as a family of four with our dog, The site is perfect for dog walking with a large field next door which was also great for frisbee throwing. There is also a park next door which the kids enjoyed using and its a short drive to Southwold which we explored on a sunny afternoon. Having been members of the club for a couple of years, this was our first visit to a CL site and will be definitely be back. The communications with the Neil was faultless and all arranged over email. We are already looking ahead a dates for another stay.
