Beautiful site

Phoned to book site just the day before and we were lucky to get a pitch. Easy to get to and big entrance, only two other vans there so we pitched in the left hand corner with the door facing the hedge as it was windy and nice and level. Soon after Janet came for the money and told us she looked after the storage and the CL as the house had been sold and there was no B&B now. I didn't use the facilities but my husband did and said they were nice and clean. Elsan and drinking water also good as was the TV reception. The site was in a great location to everywhere we wanted to go and Woolput its self is a beautiful village. The Tea Cup tea shop makes its own cakes and is a quaint little place and we had a nice meal at The Bull. There is currently building work going on in the field behind and a slight noise but nothing to disturb you and you can just hear the A14 at night if the wind is that way but again it doesn't disturb your sleep. We would come again if we are in the area and there are some really pretty villages around here.

Lovely little site perfect for visiting Bury St Edmunds

We stayed here with our two dogs early Summer 2019. Easy to find, good access and a great base to visit Bury St Edmunds or the National Trust Ickworth House. We walked the gentle 15 minute walk along a paved footpath into Woolpit and there is a Fish & Chip Shop, Tea Rooms, Foody pub (no dogs allowed) and a nice Dog friendly pub with a nice garden. The site is lovely and quiet and it was lovely to have a pond with ducks and geese wandering around. Personally, i felt the shower & toilet could have been cleaned a bit better but it was perfectly adequate for our 3 night stay. Ive marked down the arrival/welcome because you dont see anyone but only because the farm no longer manages of the site so the managers are not on site but its all very straight forward so they dont need to be. We will be back is its so peaceful and such a good base for visiting the area.

Lovely area, lovely site

Great sight in beautiful countryside. The site has a pond with ducks and geese and the freedom to park where you would wish on a large field. There is electric hook up available and a shower room with toilet which is kept very clean. The local village of Woolpit has all you need with a coop, pub, fish and chip shop and tea room; there are the towns of Bury St Edmund's and Stowmarket close by for anything you can't get in Woolpit. Overall this site has easy access, very good facilities and gives a certain freedom of camping as you can more or less pitch where you would like. We would like to return when we are in the area again and would recommend the site.

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.

Perhaps we arrived on the wrong day

I'm afraid we must have arrived on the day this lady owner forgot she is in the tourist trade, the welcoming we received was not what we would normally expect. Not having stayed before we were unaware of where anything was and we were no wiser after she rushed off, having said about ten words of welcome which included hello and goodbye. Routing about we did find where everything was and spent a very nice week in the area, the grass was kept cut the site was tidy, and the walking from the site good, if you like to fish theres a nice looking lake, but while we were there no one fished it. The towns around the site are interesting and well worth visiting. Just one more point I damaged the large roof light catch and visited Stowmarket Caravans to see if they could offer a replacement catch, they couldn't have been more more helpful. Ron in the parts department pulled all the stops out to order me the part which arrived Friday before the Bank Holiday and our departure on the Tuesday, not only that but he asked one of the fitters to walk me through the task of replacing it. I can't thank them enough, I just wish we had the same help locally. Would I stay on this site again perhaps as I now know where everything is, and the surrounding area is well worth visiting.
