We originally intended to stay on the CL, but as that was fully booked Jaik suggested one of the pitches in his adjacent six van commercial site.
We would have been very happy in either location - pitches have more space in the CL (better for larger outfits), but the commercial part is cosier and more sheltered from wind. However the CL costs £18 per night and the commercial section costs £23. If planning to stay in the commercial section it would be wise to tell Jaik if you have a long outfit as two of the pitches would not be an easy fit. Ground is generally reasonably level and appeared well drained.
There is a toilet and shower in the commercial site, but that is easily accessed by people from the CL if they chose. We did not use those facilities because of Covid.
TV reception is excellent and WiFi generally good, although it did struggle at peak, mid-evening times. There is a convenient dog walk around some woodland behind the site.
Access is straightforward, although longer outfits need to take care at the entrance.
This was our first visit to Suffolk and we were pleased to have chosen to stay at this site - it is well located for exploring the area, with many excellent pubs serving top quality food and mostly with very good Covid arrangements. There are some excellent beaches and coastal towns to explore as well as Sutton Hoo (National Trust) reasonably nearby. One highlight for us was a 4 hour trip on the traditional sailing barge Victor from Ipswich. That was an amazing experience on a beautiful sunny day. There is a brilliant bakery / cafe called the Two Magpies, one mile away up the A12.
We could easily have spent a second week here - thank you Jaik. (The fresh laid eggs were very tasty.....)
