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.

A SECLUDED SITE IN RURAL SUFFOLK

Croft Farm
We returned to the site after a break of about five years. It is as welcoming as always and for those of you who remember it from about five years ago great news the access road has been smoothed out, no more pot holes just a well drained level farm access road. We had a short break (4 nights) and were able to acheive a reasonable length walk on each of the days inspite of heavy rain on the afternoon and evening of the Saturday. The rain was such that it would have caused flooding on some sites but the sandy soil copes with whatevever the elements throw at it and drains perfectly. The walk to Alburgh via the sailors path is a standard for this area but if doing it take the opportunity to visit the open access land to the east of blackheath wood the views across to the Alde Estuary are worth the detour. There are plenty of walks from the site both towards Snape and Alburgh and also towards Glenham and Friston all are clearly marked on the OS map and the going is easy with no steep inclines or hills. The little petrol station/CoOp store just up from the site on the main road ( walk up the Gromford Lane towards the church} is well stocked and seemed to be reasonable pricewise. This is a good base to use if visiting the Suffolk coast / heathlands and would recommend it highly.

Our Suffolk safari!

Croft Farm
An ideal base for our plans to explore the coastal region of Suffolk. We visited Aldeburgh, Snape, Woodbridge, Southwold and Walberswick. Walked miles and enjoyed lots of peace and privacy. Croft Farm is everything we wanted in a CL with level fields and walks from site including the farm nature trial as well as plenty of options for beach and coastal walks in the area. We hope to return soon.

Peaceful Site

Croft Farm
We stayed for 2 nights, but wish we could have stayed for longer! The 5 pitches are spread out so there’s plenty of room for each one. Lovely level surface to pitch up on. Very friendly neighbours, and no noise apart from the crows🤣 Basic site, (which is what we like),contactless payment. We visited Thorpeness and Rendlesham Forest which were fantastic! We were so lucky with the weather, sunny the whole time!! Will definitely return.

Autumn break

Croft Farm
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

Croft Farm
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.
