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.

We’ll definitely be back!

Mollett's Farm CL
Have just returned from a lovely stay at Molletts Farm and will definitely return next summer. Site very easy to find and so handy for both coastal and inland towns. There are so many to visit. Site is just right for five vans, some pitches in shade, others in sun. Level ground with grass regularly mown, but other areas and verges full of beautiful wild flowers. Several footpaths adjacent to site. Well sheltered and really peaceful. Very welcoming hosts. Thank you.

Lovely peaceful site, wonderful family owners

Mollett's Farm CL
We stayed here for 3 nights over half term (just before second lockdown). Plenty of space in the field for the number of pitches, and we had the place to ourselves on our last night. Due to a sudden downpour just prior to arrival the site was a little muddy in the middle, but Richard was on hand immediately if we needed help and made sure we were all OK when we came to leave as well. Sasha came over to greet us after we had got settled. What a lovely welcome. Facilities were very convenient, kept in very good order, and the WiFi and local info provided were the best we've had for a while. We're so pleased we booked this site and will certainly be back once restrictions allow, and would recommend to others. I also managed to get a couple of cross country runs in around the local fields, and a round-trip run to Snape is only 10km. Getting to the site was child's play, straight off the A12 and access through the site to the field had plenty of room. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Two weeks in glorious Suffolk.

Mollett's Farm CL
We booked a two-week break with our friends which proved an excellent CL choice. We were welcomed by Richard who kindly pointed out the entrance to the CL where we met our friends who had arrived a couple of minutes before us. Access both from the A12 and onto the CL was excellent and clearly marked. There are 16-amp electric points around the CL which is level and the grass is kept short - it was mown on at least two occasions whilst we were there. There is free WiFi and this, and TV reception, are both excellent. For nature lovers we saw squirrels, grouse, numerous birds and daily visits from ‘the gang of 6’ – the ducks that stroll around the CL every day! We also saw muntjac deer whilst we were cycling along the nearby country lanes. As mentioned, access is directly from the A12, down a drive (with passing places) with minimal road noise from the A12, certainly not in anyway intrusive. Accommodation is available for those who do not have caravans or wish a break from towing. There is also a caravan dealership with a good accessory shop 10 minutes’ walk from site. We chose this CL due to its close proximity to various Suffolk attractions including Southwold, Aldeburgh, Snake Maltings, Rendelsham Forest etc. It is unsurprising that it is a very popular CL - those we met having been there on numerous occasions – booking is therefore recommended. We will certainly be returning when, hopefully, the current pandemic situation will have improved.

Fantastic site, lovely surroundings and wonderful hosts!

Mollett's Farm CL
We stayed for 4 nights in August and had the most beautiful break with our 2 children. The site is gorgeous with additional accommodation in a beautiful barn conversion (we may bring family next time). We stayed in the cl, very neat, enclosed and wonderfully arranged, meaning a well spaced out break with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. We were welcomed by Mrs Ayers, who gave us lots of information and tips for our stay, we know the surrounding areas well and it was well situated for Framlingham, Orford, Snape and Aldebugh (our favourite towns).You are able to use a path dedicated to the site only to walk across fields to a lovely farm shop and diner (Friday Street), this was good for a cooked breakfast after a lovely walk. Our children were given the run of the paddock behind the CL and had an incredible time exploring with 2 other children away from the caravans. We were also able to use the washing machine in the barn area. It was everything we wanted in a cl and more... thank you so much!

Please cut the grass

Mollett's Farm CL
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.
