Why stay here ...

Mollett's Farm Certificated Location is a family run site on a small working farm in the heart of the Suffolk Heritage Coastal area. The site is well maintained and accessible in all weather conditions and benefits from additional parking facilities. We are easy to find as the entrance is directly off the A12, just before the Aldeburgh turning, however the site is tranquil as it lies well away from the road.

The site is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area either by foot, bicycle or car. We are a short drive from the beautiful towns of Framingham with its medieval castle,  Woodbridge, home to the Anglo-Saxon burial ground of Sutton Hoo as well as many other historical buildings of interest and a delightful array of shops and restaurants and the seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh, which is just six mile away, with its world famous concert hall of Snape Maltings just a five minute drive away which also offers a  shopping complex and some lovely eateries. So exploring Suffolk's heritage Coast using Mollett's Farm as your base is ideal. 

We have lovely local shops and farm shops as well as supermarkets all within easy reach. The local farm shop is a five minute walk across the fields from the site. In addition Farm produce is often available upon request.

The local railway station is in Saxmundham our nearest town, a five minute drive, and goes to Lowestoft, the most easterly point in the UK and gateway to the Broads as well as providing easy access to Ipswich our county town.

The Latitude Festival on the Henham Estate in July is also within easy reach. Aldeburgh, the home of the composer Benjamin Britten, also hosts numerous musical events throughout the year.

Locally there are many restaurants and pubs in the surrounding towns and villages as well as numerous other historical sites and areas of outstanding natural beauty. Mollett's Farm Certified Location is within easy reach of Minsmere (RSPB) and Orford (National Trust) nature reserves. If you are a dog owner and lover then there are lovely walks up at Dunwich as well as round the Maltings, indeed it is walking distance from the site across beautiful countryside.

With a packed calendar of events in Suffolk throughout the year there is something to please everyone.    

Making the experience accessible.

Please cut the grass

We have just returned from molletts farm after a ten night stay. Nice welcome on arrival, central location for touring suffolk. However we found the site to be very small, advertised as half an acre but compared to other cl's it must be a misprint and be quarter of an acre. The grass had not been cut on our arrival and even after ten days stay they still did not cut it We do appreciate a site with short grass. No excuses hardly any rain. Lots of wildflower areas around site that's fine, but we do appreciate a neat cl .Marked down for peace and tranquility as they had a noisy peacock squarking during the daytime.

A wonderful experience

On arrival we were warmly greeted by Mrs Ayers who provided us with a welcome pack. An excellent situation for many interesting places locally. The free WiFi worked well and although we have shared on club sites for the 49+ years of membership, this and the previous stop at Boxted CL has changed our view about staying on . Other visitors were very friendly on both sites and the service provided were most acceptable. We would recommend the site to other members. Well done Mr & Mrs Ayes.

A warm welcome awaits.

We have just spent five most enjoyable days at Mollett’s Farm CL and wouldn’t hesitate to return when visiting the area. We were greeted upon our arrival by both Sasha & Richard with a large folder of information regarding visitor attractions in the local area and were made to feel very welcome. The CL’s facilities are very well arranged with a total of 8 electric hook-ups providing a variety of locations For use around the field which is adjacent to the holiday cottages and studios also operated by Mr & Mrs Ayers. There is a quality and efficiency about the whole business that makes this a superb location. Excellent strength WiFi is free of charge and there is a laundry for use by visitors for a small fee. The location is ideal for visiting all the attractions mentioned in ‘Why Stay Here’ above, facilitated by easy access directly from the A12 which is sufficiently distant to ensure there is no obtrusive road noise. Highly recommended.

Well run, peaceful CL

Easily approached via a long drive from the main road meaning what little road noise was unobtrusive. Efficient online booking system that the proprietors also use for their holiday cottage business that is run from the site. Warmly met on arrival and given an information pack for the local area. The site offers 16 amp hook up with access to bins, chemical disposal point and fresh water supply being straightforward. Site well placed for accessing local footpath networks and there is also a well stocked farm shop in easy walking distance. We enjoyed two nights at Molletts Farm walking out from the site to explore the local countryside and surrounding villages. There are a number of good dog friendly pubs in the area and we would not hesitate in returning to this friendly and welcoming site.
