A peaceful, beautiful little site. Can't fault the location in our opinion. Great cycling around the lanes. Half hour cycle to Orford. Lovely walk to Snape Maltings with stunning views along the water's edge. Would definitely return.

Perfect site.

We recently had a very peaceful and relaxed 4 night stay here and would stay again when next in Suffolk. Well located for various places of interest, including Sutton Hoo, and Snape Maltings which is a beautiful hour or so walk along the Alde river estuary path from Tumbleweed. Friendly welcoming owners and the bonus of a nice toilet and shower room. A very pretty and well-maintained site with sunny and shadier pitches. Would happily recommend!

Bank Holiday short stay

Tumbleweed
Just returned following a 4 night stay. A very pleasant and peaceful experience, made to feel very welcome and non-intrusive owners. Facilities nice and clean. Well located for several day trips both inland and coastal options. Reasonably priced, just be mindful of a number of single track roads nearby that can be tricky if towing and met by tractor or local bus travelling in opposite direction. All in all, a very well situated spot and would happily return if back in the area.

A lovely spot in Suffolk

Tumbleweed
We arrived on site after a very wet period of weather and so were pitched on a gravel based hardstanding rather the pretty pitches shown on the club website. We had no issue with being on the H/S as the grass and ground wouldn't have taken the units. The drive in from the turn off the Snape to Orford road is, or could be, rather hair-raising. It's just over 1 mile down a country lane that does have several passing places, which would be fine if all that you met were cars. However there is a supplier of Turf, amongst other things, just passed the CL and you could quite easily meet a flatback lorry full of turf coming towards you. Just be aware, particularly on those stretches of road which are not straight, of which there are a few. We never encountered one but another member did and was fortunate that there was a place with 2 passing places opposite each other. The site itself is very pleasant as are the amenable owners. The owner did say that he intends to improve the delineation of the Hardstanding pitches, as at present they are difficult to find as some grass has grown into them. 2 of these pitches are not level but fine for caravans. The water point is sited near the pond and rubbish bins at the entrance to the site with recycling provided. The Elsan point is around the rear if the owners house near the next field. It is straightforward, having 2 steel handles to help lift the grid cover for emptying into the main sewer. This is an agricultural area and as such you should expect to hear plenty of early and late tractor noise. Dog walkers can access a quiet lane, Sandy Lane, opposite the CL which leads down to a FP. The road outside leads down to Orford, about 5 miles, or back to Snape, about 2 miles. You can access Tunstall Forest quite easily for more dog walking or walk up passed the road leading to Iken Church (well worth a visit) and turn right along a FP down to the Alde estuary where, tide permitting, you can walk to Snape Maltings. Sutton Hoo is nearby as is Aldeburgh and Minsmere an easy 15 minute drive away. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return.
