Another wonderful break on the best CL in the UK

We have just spent another almost three week break on this most wonderful CL, this time taking our friends in their own caravan for their first visit. What can we say that has not been said before, the site and hosts are absolutely wonderful, and cannot be faulted. The facilities are like a top class hotel with all the leisure facilities that anyone could want. Abundant wildlife wandering the site Swans, Ducks, Squirrels, two different types of deer, foxes, rabbits and wild birds of every type. We had a lot of rain during the first week but the site did not suffer in any way. A very special thank you to Angie and Andy for the surprise arrangements they made for some of our family to join us over Fathers Day weekend, it was delightful. Cannot wait to get back again, please keep a slot free for us, Andy.

If Carlsberg did CL sites...

We stayed at The Meadows over the end of May Bank Holiday weekend and will be booking to come back soon! Location:- set in the village of Badwell Ash, over 4 acres of grounds with 2 small lakes (NOT FOR FISHING) are 5 well spaced pitches with electric hook-ups. Facilities:- One (Very clean) guest bathroom shared exclusively by the 5 pitches with W/c Hand basin and Electric shower and one W/c next door with Hand basin, Washing up area and Chemical toilet cleaning facility by to a converted building housing a full size snooker table, TV area with DVD/Videos available, Table and chairs and a comfortable seating area. Fire pits and seating areas are available scattered around the site and the pontoon over one of the lakes is a great sun trap. Hosts:- Angie and Andy have one aim, to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible, (and they do it very well!!) Area:- The site is a 5 minutes walk for the local Pub (Dogs allowed), local shop with a Fish and Chip shop also nearby. The site is very quiet and tranquil, a little haven of relaxation and beauty and we would strongly recommend booking a stay. Andy and Angie are great hosts and The Meadows is definitely on our returns list, (The only problem is, with all the great reviews this place is getting we're going to have to book early to be sure of getting in!) *Andy advised us he was hosting a family and friends BBQ with a live singer on the Sunday afternoon and there may be some noise before accepting our booking, he also said any guests on site were welcome to come along, After both Andy and Angie repeated their invite after we arrived we attended their party. We were offered drinks and food and made very welcome. We also met up with two lovely friendly couples who were also staying the weekend at the Meadows and had a fantastic afternoon.

Peaceful site with shop and pub nearby

We chose this site for a five night stay as we park up our motorhome and cycle for leisure and to get provisions. The site was quiet with great facilities including a large games room with TV which must be really useful for tent campers in bad weather. The pub and shop were close by and there are many country lanes for cycling around the pretty Suffolk countryside. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed seeing the ducks and chickens wandering around. A great choice for a break not too far away from our home in Hertfordshire. Recommend an almond croissant from the bakery at Bardwell windmill - not cheap but excellent quality!

Heaven on earth

In addition, if a good TV signal is your main concern when you choose a site, perhaps a stay on your driveway at home may be a better option. A shame to waste such a beautiful setting by having to stare at a big screen. Also, it’s lovely to enjoy the lake and fish on a purely visual basis.

Idyllic setting with wonderful owners

Our little slice of heaven. The best CL we have ever stayed at and we keep coming back! We wouldn’t leave given the choice. The site is peaceful, with pretty lakes and lovely scenery. Andy and Angie are the most friendly, welcoming hosts we’ve ever met. It’s so lovely to meet such genuine people who enjoy sharing their paradise with others. Excellent facilities, the lounge is brilliant and it’s so nice for so much thought to have put into it all to give people a wonderful holiday. Fantastic job to you two and we look forward to our next holiday at your lovely site.
