A lovely little site

We spent the last week of May here as part of a tour of East Anglia. This is a delightful site of about an acre, half of which is supplied with 16A electric hook-ups. It has the most luxurious lavatory and shower room that we have ever found on a CL with the best electric shower that we have used anywhere. There is also a separate field used for caravan storage. As it is so close to the A14 there is a faint background sound of traffic but this is not enough to spoil the tranquillity of the site. The only improvement that we would make would be the addition of wi-fi. We know that many people use CLs to “get away from it all”, but we are geocachers and it would have been good to be able to upload our logs each day from the caravan rather than wait until we were at another site. The village of Woolpit is a half-mile stroll away along an asphalted public footpath that is accessed from a gate in the hedge along one side of the field. Woolpit has two pubs, a Co-op shop, a filling station with a shop attached, a fish and chip shop, a bakery, a hairdresser, a tea shop and an ancient church with a beautifully carved double hammer-beam roof. From here Bury St Edmunds, with its cathedral and abbey ruins, is only eleven miles away. There is also a large Tesco. In the other direction Stowmarket is only six miles away and has a large Asda.

Worth another visit

A peaceful site with a regular turnaround of visitors. Good toilet/shower and waste disposal. The owners were conspicuous by their abscence, and I wonder if I hadnt gone to the house to pay whether they would have known we were there. I think this is better than the owners continually on the prowl, and as long as everyone was behaving they left you well alone. Many places of interest were within reasonable distance and if you are NT or English Heritage there are a good few very interesting places to visit. At £12.50 all in, I think its very good value and a site not to be missed. We did buy from the butcher on site, but found him a bit on the expensive side.

Lovely site and plenty to do

Grange Farm is easily accessed from the A14.  It is an attractive site with small lakes on either side of the entrance.  The shower and toilet is well-appointed with hot air hand dryer and heater.  The room also has a board with information about local facilities, bus service and recycling.  There are plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling in the area and we recommend visits to Bury St Edmunds, Lavenham and the Museum of East Anglian Life at Stowmarket.

weekend visit

A lovely site, with good access, a level area for vans with nice short grass. There is a lovely shower and toilet room. The water tap, disposal points and the electric hookup boxes all easily found. There is a small butcher shop on site which had some lovely meat and few farmshop bits, it had a steady steam of visitors but was never noisy. A tarmac footpath runs alongside the site which gives access to the village within 10 mins walking. The site was so quiet and peaceful throughout our visit and we will definitely be visiting again.
