Worst site I have been on

Arrived on a Sunday during a wet week tried to reverse onto pitch , car sank into mud unhitched caravan owner put boards down for caravan to move on back on to pitch ,car had to be towed out of mud site should have been closed mud everywhere,made up roadway on site builders rubble dangerous to walk on plastic netting in ground trip hazard,would not recommend or return to this so called site Ken Widdowson

Response from the Club:

Many thanks for your review. The CL owner has been in touch as they want to make sure everyone has a wonderful time on their site and are sorry that you experienced issues during your stay due to the very heavy rain that unfortunately caused issues on many sites. Since your visit, to make sure the same situation does not happen again, the CL Owner has recently added 4 hard standings and a longer hard surfaced driveway over the Hill Farm CL site to cope with anymore heavy rain periods, so the mud is no longer an issue. He has also removed the builders rubble and  the plastic netting. We hope this helps address your concerns and the CL owners are sorry that you won't be returning to them in the future.

A very kind and accommodating host

It was lovely to stay on this site in early December. The site is very close to the A12, and so very easy to travel to and to find. The closeness of the road doesn't disturb the peace. There are beautiful sunsets to be seen from the site, and the remote location means that you can see a full sky of stars at night with no light pollution. All the facilities are here, a little basic, but all clean and all working. We were left to set up in peace, and a lovely welcome note was left to give us wifi codes, directions and everything else we might need. The site is within walking distance of some very good local pubs, and a short drive to the wonderful Dunwich beach. The site was a little wet, so when we came to leave, we found we were stuck. The owner Jaik couldn't have been more helpful. He towed the caravan, and then our car, onto the gravel access, so that we could get safely on our way. Weather is always a challenge when camping in Winter, but Jaik handled it all with such polite good humour.

Pretty site

This is a really well placed site for the beautiful Suffolk countryside and quaint coastal towns. Jaik could not have been more helpful and welcoming and good recommendations for one or two local pubs serving the local Suffolk brew were a good start to our holiday! The facilities on site are excellent and well maintained. Free range chickens and lots of other birds paint the picture for a real country idyll. The eggs taste amazing too! This will be a site we will be returning to. Thanks Jaik.

A bit disappointed

We booked this site some months before visiting on the back of the glowing reviews so we're very shocked when we arrived and found 6 vans already pitched up and someone just finishing setting up on the pitch we had been told we would be on. The only remaining pitch was uneven and littered with mole hills making it somewhat muddy after rain. Jaik was very apologetic and admitted it was his mistake but that didn't help us! He did find a hose for us so we could have mains water. For most of the 9 nights of our stay there were more than 5 vans. The noise from the A12 was quite intrusive and every morning before dawn about 3 empty lorries rattled down the lane. Although the site info states wifi available on the whole site it was very hit and miss and at times non existent. Not sure I would return.

Great site

I would like to say that this was a dreadful site so I could keep it to myself!!! But I couldn't do that to Jaik. He is so welcoming and helpful. The site was just as it's description with a ++. Very clean and tidy. Even the Chemical emptying point was clean!!! Hope to go again soon.

One of the best CL's

In July 17 we made our 4th visit to this CL and found that Jaik, the owner, had made more improvements. It now has good wifi, a toilet, shower, washing machine plus, of course electric hookups. Jaik himself is very helpful and keen to please.. We can strongly recommend this CL to Club members.

perfect

Have just spent 5 nights at this lovely site and what a delight it was to have found this little gem!! The setting was perfect even though it was near the A12 didn't even notice the traffic, the ow ner was so friendly and helpful and we were so near many places of interest, but it was just as nice relaxing on the site, we came away talking about when we can return soon we hope !!

Suffolk Coast discovered.

Stayed for 3 midweek nights at the end of June 2017. Want to give Jaik a trash review so no-one else goes there and we can be sure of a pitch next time! Unfortunately can't do that - Jaik runs a perfect CL location - it does what it says on the tin! Perfect location for getting out to the Suffolk coast; try the Fox Inn for food; his eggs are great; and a Budgens just down the road for top-up bits. Wi-fi is amazing - best we have experienced on a site. We have had a blast - you will too!

Deserves to do well

The information on the site notes is accurate and needs no embellishment. This really is a delightful site and the effort put in by Jaik is commendable. Due to the very friendly nature of Jaik and the fact that he is available leads to a very pleasant atmosphere throughout the site. OH, and the excellent free wi-fi is a real bonus.

All that is needed

A really pleasant week (16th to 23rd May 2017) started with a very warm welcome from the Owner. Well manicured grass; clean toilet (shower expected to be running very soon - it is already fitted); excellent and powerful free wifi; free range home produced eggs for sale!. Many thanks to the Owners for your hospitality.
