Lovely autumn break!

This site is well situated for visiting the lovely Suffolk towns of Bungay, Beccles and Halesworth as well as the coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold. A short walk away is Darsham Station and from here you can pick up trains to Woodbridge or beyond to Ipswich and northwards onto Lowestoft. There are good pubs in the vicinity, some of which are dog friendly and do food all day. Notably, we had a fabulous early evening meal at the Queen's Head in Bramfield and a wonderful Sunday roast at the White Hart at Blythburgh. The local, Fox Inn is walkable but not open every day - so best to check their board for opening times. There's two parts to the actual site, the 5 hard standings in one half and a grassed area beyond - which you could pitch on during the summer months when the ground is firm , but will probably need to take an extra lead. Take note though that the power supply is only 6 amps so will need to be managed during cold weather if you've a larger van. There's no getting away from the fact that the A12 is nearby, which whilst a blessing for access, is audible from the site, although not intrusive. The waste and water area is covered , tidy and easy to use. We had a very interesting and restful autumnal break.

Reply form the Club:

Many thanks for leaving a review and we are delighted that you had a wonderful time at this lovely site. We just wanted to advise that the electricity supply is actually 10 amps not 6 amps so this should be more than adequate allowing fridges and heaters to work satisfactorily during winter months. We hope this helps address your concern.

Great site for a short or long stay.

Great site with large hardstandings. Just off the A12 and close to the Sufolk coast. We received a very warm welcome from the owners. We are very happy to recommend this CL to anyone looking to stay near the Sufolk coast and we look forward to going back there soon.

Well kept site.

Well maintained quiet site, close to heritage coast, shop and pub. We felt the owner was excessively angry with us for spinning our front wheels on a soggy patch on his grass. We also felt it was unfair that he demanded we took our free standing awning down (not a tent, we’ve checked!). Neither our newish iphones nor our ipad could detect the wifi.

Very happy to have stayed here.

This is a very pretty site, easily reached via the A12. If you listern carefully, you can hear traffic in the distance, but it isn't a problem. I disagree with an earlier review that said the pitches were too close together. There are 3 hardstanding side by side with an ample grass area between each one. Two other hardstanding pitches stand alone, plus there is the large grass area, with trees and shrubs, at the bottom of the site where you may prefer to stay. The site runs alongside a small orchard, so lovely to look at with apple and plum trees. Blackbery bushes are scattered around along Priory Lane, leading to the CL. Rabbits are running around towards the bottom of the site most days. This is a very peaceful place to stay. Water facilities and chemical toilet disposal are excellent, pristine, and under the cover of a huge canopy. Ample bins, kept very clean, for rubbish and recycling. We found the Bloomfields to be lovely, very friendly people, and helpful with anything we asked and informative with local places to visit. This was our very first stay on a CL and it really couldn't have gone better. Thank you to Mr & Mrs Bloomfield.

perfect

Just returned from  3 night visit, it was perfect for us and facilities were excellent, a little road noise but no problem, several footpaths from site for dog walking. Just after arrival there was a pheasant shoot which thankfully didn't last too long. Will definitely visit again a very well kept site

GREAT CL

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Priory Farm. We can thoughly recommend this CL. The site facilities are as good as a Club site. A previous review criticised the site because the grass was to long. We are sure that this must have been the fault of the weather this year with all the rain and not being able to cut it. When we arrived the grass was short and while we where there it was also cut again. A lovely CL and we will return again next year.

Great location

This CL is in a great location for the Suffolk coast. It's a short walk in to the village but we did struggle to find any local dog walks. We also struggled to find anybody to pay so pitched up and eventually found somebody the next day. It has got 5 hard standings which are relatively small and close together but there is a big grassed area at the bottom of the site. Facilities for waste and water were very good. TV reception and 3G/4G on O2 were good. We would return though as we didn't have long enough to explore the local area.

Tiger Country

Unfortunately we arrived during a heavy rain storm, we could not find anybody to ask about pitch so proceeded onto the site. To our dismay the grass had not been mown for sometime as it was 30cm long in places even near to the hard standing which was not large enough for outfit and awning.  As an awning is very important to us and it would have been foolish to try to erect, so this was a problem.  Again went to reception but got no response. This was a shame but despite some road noise from local A road the village was charming and the general facilities were excellent.

Comment from The Club:

Many thanks for writing a review. The CL owners have been in touch as they work hard to ensure everyone is happy on site and want to address the concerns you have raised. 

Unfortunately during the time of your stay the CL owner was unwell. They would like to assure guests this is not what people can expect when staying with them. The grass is being regularly maintained and this is no longer an issue.

As you can see from other reviews the CL is very popular and is well cared and looked after. We sincerely apologise if you do not feel this was the case during your stay.

Would Recommend

Have just returned from a few days stay and found it to be very pleasant and ideally located for visiting beauty spots as in Southwold , Dunwich etc. The local pub The Fox Inn Darsham is a great little pub with delicious food. We had a lovely Sunday roast dinner and desert for £10.95 p.p. Nell and Brian were very welcoming. Will return in future. Plenty of pleasant dog walks although some noise occasionally from clay pigeon shooting on neighbouring farm but not a problem really.site is clean and well kept.

Stay with motorhome towing car.

A large, peaceful, well-kept site.  The cdp/water point is covered and is better than at most club sites.  The last 250 metres to the site is fairly narrow but presents no major problems.  This was our second stay on this site and we would not hesitate about returning.
