Why stay here ...

The Site

Set within the ground of a bucolic, 100 acre working family farm, here at White House Farm Sibton we offer our guests an idyllic and tranquil base from which to explore the picturesque Suffolk countryside and Heritage Coast.

Located on a well maintained secluded lawn area nestled amongst the trees, each of our 5 pitches have electrical hook up and plenty of space for awnings, tables and chairs.

From £3 per day you can enjoy fishing in our small yet beautiful lake or simply wile away the hours on its banks keeping watch for our resident kingfishers. As the evening draws in, our majestic barn owl might just treat you to a flyover!

We welcome both families and couples alike and well behaved, sociable dogs will enjoy taking walks with you around our marked farm trails.

For any of your non-caravaning friends and family we also have a small number of charming rustic Shepherd’s Huts available to rent, lovingly hand crafted by Gus, White House Farm patriarch!

Things move at a gentler pace here at the farm and many of our returning guests come to simply relax in the peace and quiet and surround themselves with nature. However, should you wish to explore your surroundings a little more there is no shortage of breath taking natural beauty, history, culture and activities to discover.

The Surrounding Area

Little over a mile from our location is the sleepy parish of Sibton, you will find the charming village of Peasenhall with its renowned deli and café, Emmetts, a Post Office, village stores, exceptional local butchers and a tearoom. A further 2 minu7te drive will steer you to the front door of our nearest pub, The White Horse, a sixteenth century free-house serving an extensive award winning menu and a great selection of beers.

A four mile drive will take you to Saxmundham, the nearest town, which offers 2 supermarket, Indian and Chinese restaurants, and a selection of independent  shops and cafes.

Just 15 minutes away you can discover the famous Snape Maltings on the River Alde, a beautiful arts complex and concert hall with lovely shops and eateries from where you can take boat rides and walks around the estuary to explore the wildlife.

A scenic 20 minute drive will lead you to the stunning Heritage Coastline, where fresh fish shacks, boat rides and beach huts can be found in abundance; Aldeburgh, a stylish seaside resort famed for its annual music festival and carnival. Southwold, an unspoilt seaside town with traditional pier, family friendly beach and home to our favourite tipple, Adnams. Walberswick, at the mouth of the river Blythe with unspoilt, wild sandy beaches and RSPB Minsmere, a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, home to Springwatch and recognised for its many species of birds and wildlife.

Wonderful CL

Arrived to find we were the only ones there and were amazed as we immediately realised what a lovely site it was. Each pitch was clearly marked out and there was plenty of room and it faced the lovely lake which was full of fish and a fishermans delight. Of course the next day two more vans arrived and then the next day another which was great. There are lovely walks around the site all signposted and colour coded by the owner which is brilliant. The family are very friendly and full of information. It is slightly too far to walk to the village and mobile signal is a bit hit and miss but other than that everything is perfect.

Best C/L we have stayed on in 30 yrs

We went in May and cancelled our August holiday elsewhere to go back. I think what others have said I can only repeat and say you cant get better. We will be back next year. Dennis Sheffield

My Type Of Site

The only thing i didnt like about our short stay at White Horse Farm is that i couldnt stay longer . The pitches are faily level on very well kept grass ,with ample space . The fishing is good . Gus and his family are the perfect hosts . There is wildlife aplenty , marked walks around the farm (hard , medium and easy) . The dogs are friendly and lovable . I just wish i had found thuis beautiful Cl earlier . Would we return ? Oh yes !

Peace and Tranquility

We have just returned from 2 wonderful nights at May Bank holiday weekend. Gus and his family are wonderfully friendly and the site is so peaceful and idyllic! Star gazing was amazing! A clean, tidy and well kept site, with a lake and lots of wildlife. Gus loves his animals and wildlife and was happy to show us around the farm. We heard owls and there was lots of other bird life in the trees. Thank you for making us so welcome - we would highly recommend this hidden gem!
