Why stay here ...
Hill Farm Certificated Location is in a rural setting, and yet conveniently located for easy access to the A12. The coast at Dunwich is less than 5 miles away. It is open all year and adults, children and pets are all welcome. The site is located on a large, south-facing, flat field with mesh protected grass pitches, electrical hook-ups and ample space for awnings. The site is surrounded by mature hedges and is abutted by arable fields and young woodland to the north, although Hill Farm itself is no longer a working farm.
There is a WC, washbasin, shower, ladies and gents toilet block with hot water for handwashing, washing machine and free Wi-Fi available across the whole site. Each pitch has its own drinking water tap. The 4-5 acre young woodland behind the CL site is accessible for dog walking.
The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding coastal areas, especially the beautiful seaside towns of Southwold (9 miles away) and Aldeburgh (14 miles away). The popular village of Westleton is approximately 1.5 miles away and here there is a restaurant, village stores, a garage, an art gallery and 2 pubs, including the well-respected Crown Inn.
There are also many nearby attractions, such as Orford and Framlingham castles, museums, the National Trust Site at Dunwich, the famous RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve and the charming town of Woodbridge, near to the Anglo-Saxon burial ground of Sutton Hoo. There are two local shops within a mile of the site selling local produce and a garage. There are also numerous local pubs, restaurants and cafes. The village of Darsham is a mile from Hill Farm and has a pub, The Fox Inn, serving very good food.
Darsham railway station is just over a mile from the CL site and has services to London’s Liverpool Street Station via Ipswich. The town of Saxmundham is 5 miles away, with Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets. Snape, with its world famous concert hall, is just over 10 miles away. The increasingly popular Latitude Music Festival on the Henham Estate in July is about 6 miles away.
The woodlands, heathlands and coast are perfect for those who enjoy walking and bird watching, and the country lanes are great for cycling. There are also two high quality holiday lodges next to the site (each sleeping a maximum of 4 people, with 2 bedrooms) which offer accommodation for friends and relatives visiting without a caravan. The owner lives nearby to deal with any problems and does regular site maintenance.
(This site is becoming increasingly popular, so advanced booking is necessary and payment is due on arrival. If you have not prebooked, please do not park your unit on site until you have checked availability. Please vacate your pitch by 11am on the day of departure. Sorry we cannot accept credit cards.)
