Lovely autumn break!

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.

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.

Well kept site.

Well maintained quiet site, close to heritage coast, shop and pub. We felt the owner was excessively angry with us for spinning our front wheels on a soggy patch on his grass. We also felt it was unfair that he demanded we took our free standing awning down (not a tent, we’ve checked!). Neither our newish iphones nor our ipad could detect the wifi.

Very happy to have stayed here.

This is a very pretty site, easily reached via the A12. If you listern carefully, you can hear traffic in the distance, but it isn't a problem. I disagree with an earlier review that said the pitches were too close together. There are 3 hardstanding side by side with an ample grass area between each one. Two other hardstanding pitches stand alone, plus there is the large grass area, with trees and shrubs, at the bottom of the site where you may prefer to stay. The site runs alongside a small orchard, so lovely to look at with apple and plum trees. Blackbery bushes are scattered around along Priory Lane, leading to the CL. Rabbits are running around towards the bottom of the site most days. This is a very peaceful place to stay. Water facilities and chemical toilet disposal are excellent, pristine, and under the cover of a huge canopy. Ample bins, kept very clean, for rubbish and recycling. We found the Bloomfields to be lovely, very friendly people, and helpful with anything we asked and informative with local places to visit. This was our very first stay on a CL and it really couldn't have gone better. Thank you to Mr & Mrs Bloomfield.

perfect

Just returned from  3 night visit, it was perfect for us and facilities were excellent, a little road noise but no problem, several footpaths from site for dog walking. Just after arrival there was a pheasant shoot which thankfully didn't last too long. Will definitely visit again a very well kept site
