Peaceful

Priory Farm
We stayed in mid April and our review a little late due to family emergency. We are newbies to the caravaning (is that a word) and this was only our 2nd time in our caravan and we loved this peaceful and well kept site. We didn't hear noise with regard to A12 traffic and had no issue with the WiFi and would come back again. During our stay we visited Southwold, Aldeburgh, Kessingland and Lowestoft and whilst we didn't have the any rain it was cold but this didn't spoil our first visit to Suffolk and typically when we got back to our caravan the sun came out so we were able to enjoy the views of the site offered - rabbits running around at the back of us, the fruit trees and chickens. The Fox is within easy walking distance with food available but you would need to check opening times. We would definitely return to this site and have recommended to our friends with motorhomes and caravans. Adrian & Helen Richardson

Super CL

Priory Farm
Had 6 nights here in Aug/Sept, would've stayed longer but no room. Easy to locate from A12 keeping the Fox Pub on your right. Super facilities, kept clean and tidy, grass mown etc. Eggs and free apples available. Wifi was none existent for us, but was for a fellow camper who was further away from the house, odd. Fox pub open every day, good food on a short menu, decent beers on too. Lovely welcome from Pub owner Barbara. Nice easy flat cycling either side of the A12, definitely return here.

Lovely autumn break!

Priory Farm

This site is well situated for visiting the lovely Suffolk towns of Bungay, Beccles and Halesworth as well as the coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. A short walk away is Darsham Station and from here you can pick up trains to Woodbridge or beyond to Ipswich and northwards onto Lowestoft. There are good pubs in the vicinity, some of which are dog friendly and do food all day. Notably, we had a fabulous early evening meal at the Queen's Head in Bramfield and a wonderful Sunday roast at the White Hart at Blythburgh. The local, Fox Inn is walkable but not open every day - so best to check their board for opening times. There's two parts to the actual site, the 5 hard standings in one half and a grassed area beyond - which you could pitch on during the summer months when the ground is firm , but will probably need to take an extra lead. Take note though that the power supply is only 6 amps so will need to be managed during cold weather if you've a larger van. There's no getting away from the fact that the A12 is nearby, which whilst a blessing for access, is audible from the site, although not intrusive. The waste and water area is covered , tidy and easy to use. We had a very interesting and restful autumnal break.

Reply form the Club:

Many thanks for leaving a review and we are delighted that you had a wonderful time at this lovely site. We just wanted to advise that the electricity supply is actually 10 amps not 6 amps so this should be more than adequate allowing fridges and heaters to work satisfactorily during winter months. We hope this helps address your concern.

Great site for a short or long stay.

Priory Farm
Great site with large hardstandings. Just off the A12 and close to the Sufolk coast. We received a very warm welcome from the owners. We are very happy to recommend this CL to anyone looking to stay near the Sufolk coast and we look forward to going back there soon.
