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.

A nice site but..........

As other people have mentioned this is a nice site, although there are rather a lot of trees, making it difficult to park without being under one, so if it rains you would get a lot of dripping from them. I'm afraid to say we didn't get the warm welcome that others have mentioned, perhaps we caught the owners on a bad day. Christine's cousin (who lives close by) met us as Christin was out, & she did make us feel welcome & showed us around. Christine did appear later and handed us a set of rules, one being highlighted in orange marker 'All pitches, including pre-booked must be paid for on arrival'. I think in 26 years of caravanning I've only been asked to do this on one or two occasions on a CL. At around 5pm her husband drove past our pitch (several times) on a grass cutter & not once did he acknowledge our presence, even though I held my hand up. Later that evening we saw him chatting away to some Motor-homers, so perhaps they're no keen on caravaners. Anyhow, I hope the owners read this review and make more of an effort in future, although I'm afraid we would not return.

Garden

This is a great CL. As someone else said, it is more of a garden than a field. Very attractive pond and plenty of space. The welcome was terrific and the owners could not have been more helpful. It is a cycle ride to the Maltings and there is very attractive church nearby. My only criticism is also a virtue - it really is peaceful and tranquil but as a result it is also remote - no pubs or shops nearby. If there was an overall rating of 4.5 it would get it.

Beautiful site

We arrived and found a perfect pitch over looking the pond. Soon had our chairs out to relax and enjoy the view with our new friendly neighbours. Christine was a delight explaining everything to us and making us feel very much at home. Facilities were second to none and would loved to have stayed longer but there was no room. We enjoyed a visit to a concert at the Maltings and trips round the area too many to mention. We will return to this site in the future not only because of the location but the owners are special people who's company we really enjoyed. Thank you for having so us and the boys ( dogs )
