Why stay here ...

Sunflower House site Yoxford- formerly known as Old School site.

My CL was formerly known as Old School site and was successfully run by my Mother-in-law for 35 years. We decided to rename it Sunflower House site as our House is located on the entrance to the site and is called Sunflower House because we grow approximately half an acre of sunflowers on our land that bloom between July and September and enhance the environment for wildlife and our guests.  

The site is set within eight acres of woodland/grassland and agricultural land. Adults, children and pets are all welcome, but we do ask that small children are supervised by an adult at all times. The site itself has large individual hedge lined flat lawned pitches with electric hook ups. Cut grassed paths cover all eight acres, making the site ideal for dog owners, walkers and those with an interest in wildlife.

The nearby A12 allows easy access to many interesting locations. Good local pub shop and restaurants all within a five minute walk. The heritage coast is within ten miles of the site including Southwold, Aldeburgh and Dunwich. Minsmere Bird Reserve is approximately four miles away and historic Orford and Framlingham Castles are within fifteen miles.

Quiet and peaceful location

This is a lovely site, the owners are very welcoming and friendly. The owners have created a lovely walk around the farm that we and our dogs enjoyed immensely. The pitch sizes are generous and are with easy reach of the water and elsan point. There is a lovely pub within walking distance plus a well stocked shop in the village We will return soon.

Blooming Marvellous

We stayed here for Christmas 2018, and on arrival we were greeted by the site owner who supplied us with a useful local information pack. This CL is beautiful: it is surrounded by grass footpaths which our dog loved, there are hedges between each pitch and there is a very useful information shed that is also the home for lots of useful things that you may just need to borrow on your trip away. We have been caravanning for five years and this is the first CL we have visited that has 'gone the extra mile' and given much needed written advice on what items go into each refuse and recyling bin and as the rules change from one council to another and can be very confusing – well done. With the homely welcome we received and the pleasure of staying at such a beautiful site, we will definitely be visiting again. Thank you for a lovely Christmas break.

Absolutely loved it

Sorry, very late in reviewing this! We came to Sunflower House in May and had a very warm welcome and a cup of tea which was wonderful. A beautiful site with hedging down the sides of your pitch for privacy. A lovely walk around the site for dogs and our GSD had a great time. There is a summer house with a fantastic selection of books to buy with an honesty box to put your donation in. Brilliant pub just a short walk away - suggest booking a table and very dog friendly. Dunwich is a car ride away but a dog friendly beach and a good cafe. Absolutely loved this site and we’re going back in September!!

Great CL - Just the ticket

Stayed here last night and it was one of the best we have been on. Large flat pitches with hedging in between, lovely views over the sun flowers. Would recommend.

excellent cl site

Probably the nicest CL we have been on, we were lucky with the weather, the pitches are very private and the people were friendly, loved the walks through the wooded areas and the wild life, would definitely go again, was apprehensive of the A12, but it was ok, good pub 5 mins away, thumbs up for this CL.
