Why stay here ...

Our very well maintained site is accessible all year round in all weather conditions. There is lots of space on the free draining site which is level, and has easy access from the A12 which is 1.5 miles away. Very peaceful, with good walks and footpath links from the site itself.

Croft Farm’s crowning glory is its location. Its serene setting on the beautiful Suffolk Heritage Coast is surrounded by rolling countryside and lies within ten minutes of the coast. You’re just two miles from the world famous Snape Maltings music venue, while AldeburghSouthwold, and Woodbridge are all in easy reach. This is the perfect base from which to explore Suffolk.

Autumn break

Had 3 nights at Croft Farm. The site is very level and well drained - it hammered down a couple of times during my stay but the sandy soil meant it never got deep or slippery. Perfect all year round site. Well placed for Aldeburgh and Framlingham, as well as Sutton Hoo and Woodbridge. No contact with owner, other than a brief phone call to ensure I was in the right place. Payment via envelopes through the letter box. Facilities basic but functional.

Good level site, facilities fine, some issues on cycling

The site is level, and facilities were good, including a large soakaway for waste water. Hand san was not provided by the taps or emptying point,s as has been done on other sites we have visited this summer. We did not meet the owner, but payment was contactless with details supplied via envelopes. The site is very near Snape Maltings, and also Friday Street farm shop. Saxmundham, the nearest town has two busy supermarkets, Waitrose and Tesco, but the rest of the town we found disappointing, feeling rather rundown and tired. Roads proved something of a problem. We decided to walk to the farm shop, but the last section along the A1094 was hazardous. For cycling there is a quiet lane to Snape, but the surface has been dressed with chippings which have never bedded down in the centre, so is potentially dangerous for bikes, especially on downhill stretches. Since the A1094 is so busy, access to anywhere by bike is via Snape, from where there is a nice route along quiet lanes to Orford, but access to villages inland entails crossing the A12, which is not at all easy.

First class as usual

We have visited Eddie at Craft Farm many times over the years. Our latest visit was recently, soon after the lifting of lock-down. Another first class stay. Very quiet, loys to do. A super local pub, The Golden Key and look out for the bats arriving at dusk! Great walks all locally and very close to the ocean. Well done Eddie. We shall return!!!

First Class Everytime

Every time we visit. Croft Farm comes up trumps. Clean, smart, quiet, ample power and adequate facilities. This time in our new motorhome and the hottest day in the UK ever. Thank you Eddie and the team at Croft Farm. We will return.
