Yes, a lovely peaceful spot

I stayed here last weekend, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'm sure I'll be back. This is a very pretty area, which we had driven past to get to Snape and Aldeburgh on previous visits, and it's well-worth exploring. The lovely Tunstall forest is very close, as is the river, and the local roads were great for cycling in the sunshine down to the cafe on the quay at Orford. This site doesn't have a pub, shop or restaurant on the doorstep, so you will need to drive or cycle for provisions. I found all I needed in Orford, in the friendly little tardis that is the village store, and the cafes and pubs there. (For good food, I recommend the Crown & Castle). The pub at Snape Maltings also did a jolly good lunch. The site also has no washing-up facilities; something to be aware of if you're in a smaller unit like mine. But as others have said, it's got a lovely combined bathroom and shower room. You need £1 for the shower, but that gets you a luxurious 10 mins in pleasant surroundings! There is just the one bathroom, but it's a small site so I imagine you would seldom have to wait for it. All in all, one of my favourite small sites, and I look forward to returning with wife and dog after my initial solo reconnaissance!

It was a joy to stay at Tumbleweed - we will be back!

Just spent three lovely nights on this CL. The site is immaculate, the facilities spotless and the location is fabulous for exploring. Only a 10 minute walk to the footpath which takes you right around the estuary to Snape Maltings, idyllic and wonderful for walkers and birdwatchers. During our stay we visited Snape Maltings, Woodbridge and the ever evolving Sutton Hoo - all so easy to get to from Tumbleweed. Good value for money - we will be back thankyou.

Lovely Site

A lovely site with good facilities and an ideal base for exploring the surrounding areas of Aldeburgh, Southwold, Woodbridge, Orford and Snape. Good area for cycling too. Owners very friendly and helpful. Many of the other people staying were repeat bookings and we will be joining them. Happy to recommend and its definitely on our list of sites to return to.

Great CL

As many have said this is more of a very large lovely garden than the usual CL. We arrived after very heavy rain but the grass was not waterlogged. The owner welcomed us warmly and showed us around. Unfortunately it rained all night and by morning there was a little sogginess! The approach to the CL is along very narrow lanes. The shower costs 50p but offers plenty of hot water in a nice bathroom kept beautifully clean. As the CL is right in the countryside a car journey is needed to reach shops etc. Orford is nearby (10 ins drive) and is very pretty with lots of excellent eateries, the famous Pump St bakery, a general store, a beautiful castle, the riverside and Orford Ness.
