A visit which was ruined by a regular visitor !

Please bare in mind that this site is a church carpark that links directly to the beautiful medieval graveyard and as such in our view ought to be respected as such. We arrived on a Thursday and we were quite literally amazed by the almost unique tranquility of this very individual site, but little did we know our visit would be ruined by the arrival the following afternoon by a regular visitor who treated the site as if it was their very own! This isn't the place to point out the errors of this member who didn't control their dogs at all, nor ask their grandchildren to respect the beautiful, ancient consicrated land over which they noisilly rode their bikes, but very clearly this regular visitor should have paid far closer attention to the requests made in the visitor notes of this beautiful churches surroundings!! Luckilly this couple and their grandchildren were only there for 2 nights. But with the exception of the above which I am reporting to the PCC, this location is a quite amazing and utterly tranquil CL to visit, most especially if you are dog owners or twitchers, as from the very entrance of the site their are quite literally miles and miles of totally unspoilt tracks to explore, but mind you, keep an eye open for tics as from our experiences there are a lot of the terrible little critters in the immediate neighbourhood. The location of the site allows easy access to a wide area of the beautiful surrounding countryside and with the exception of our first two days we loved every single minute of our stay. Oh and by the way, this is a very basic site which is one of the reasons why we loved it so very much.

A lovely spot

This is a lovely place to stay right next to a church which was open for the duration of our stay. The site is relatively small for five units but if spaced with consideration it will be cosy. There is easy of access to the water and septic tank but when we were there the septic tank was not draining although we were told it had been cleared recently. One is instructed to give the fee to the local pub but having tried several times it was always closed! We did manage it eventually and found that it had restricted opening times. We would advise sorting out the method of payment before arrival.

Great basic site

Stayed here over the weekend and would recommend. It is a very basic site with just a tap and WC point (separate) and a bin for rubbish. No Recycling so bought all that home. Track up to the site is sand so a bit scary in a MH trying to cross the ruts but made it. Would re-iterate what a previous review said regards getting the entrance hedge/trees trimmed, its OK for cars but not for a MH or caravan so it is a bit tight. Easy to find, just look for the church and the site is in the church car park (all grass). Quite a busy road during the day but no noise at night, paid at the pub in the morning. Lots of footpaths nearby. Maybe a bit tight with 5 units but so long as everyone spreads out it would probably be OK.

A hidden treasure

Stayed here for two nights in May. Access from the main road is via a small sandy track and there is a moderately steep but short climb up to the site itself which is well drained and mostly level with a slight slope in some areas. There is nobody to greet you and we didn't manage to contact anybody by phone. However, clear instructions and information are posted on a tree which can't be missed. The site comprises the car park for the lovely old Saxon church of St Peters and is next to the church and graveyard. There is a gastro-pub, The Froize Inn within a few minutes walk and the Oyster Inn at Butley can be walked to in about 40 minutes. There are lovely walks in all directions from the site and Orford itself can be walked to across the fields in about an hour and a half. Most of Suffolk's main towns and attractions are within a short car journey. All in all a highly recommended campsite if you are the self-sufficient sort.

Wonderful

We stayed here for six nights at the end of May. A lovely peaceful site. Lots to do and see in the local area. Like a previous reviewer we also saw the white deer. The bushes by the entrance could still do with a trim.
