Beautiful peaceful retreat

Just returned from a lovely stay here over the Easter period. Stayed on the bottom field which only has electric hook up and water. The toilets and shower are on the top field but as we have a toilet and shower in the motorhome this is not an issue for us but if you don't there is at least a five minute walk to the facilities. We only used the toilet, and whilst clean they are basic. This is a working farm with a small shop selling their own beef (frozen), honey and apple juice. Anything more and you'll need to go to the nearest shops. We had bicycles with us, quiet country roads for the most part with easy access to Aldeburgh and Thorpness. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing, peaceful retreat in some beautiful countryside you need look no further.

Delightful Small Green Organic Family Farm

Just returned from another wonderful stay at our special favourite place courtesy of the delightful White family. We chose not to use the hardstanding as there are lovely spacious grassy areas available. The shower and toilet are a lovely bonus especially as it means a daily visit from Richard Forest George and Blackie who I have to say keep it in tip top condition (it’s a farm) We love the location being within a short distance to the beautiful Suffolk countryside and coast. We love walking around the beautiful farm fields and seeing the wonderful organic herd the bees and eating blackberries. We love the wildlife we see. We love buying produce from the shop the beef and Richards tomatoes are outstanding. We love the big field opposite for excercising our dog. We always feel privileged to stay and look forward to our next visit.

5 day break on Suffolk Coastal fringe

Easy to find and reasonably good road access from A12 through Saxmundham. Hard standing only that appeared closely packed together as parking the car in the 'Caravan Club' tradition, resulted in our opening the passenger doors within an inch or two of the neighbours small porch awning. We then moved car to other side of caravan having agreed with other neighbours that it was OK with them as they had to park their tow vehicle (a camper van) in the farm yard opposite the field (as advised by the owners). Some traffic noise from lightly used country road that is directly adjacent to where vans are pitched. Toilet and shower functional but NOT exclusive to Club members. Whilst there, we evidenced other campers/caravanners from a field on the other side of the farm did make use of this facility. Also, the August BH weekend has a music festival in the field opposite this site, also owned by the local farmer. This resulted in some of the 'crew' setting up the festival using the showers etc from Monday onwards prior to the weekend. The key lock pad was not in operation to keep it exclusive. On one occasion, a crew member used the showers in the early hours of the morning (approx. 1.30 am). On one evening, I went for a shower only to be able to have a cold shower as the water pressure was too low. I was later informed by a fellow caravanner that this was due to the festival organisers filling up very large water containers that were then carried over to the festival field. My recommendation would be to avoid this week prior to the festival and unless you are visiting the festival, avoid the August BH weekend and with many strangers in close proximity, the safety/security aspect is of concern; otherwise the site is peaceful and attractive enough for a CL, the owners are very pleasant and attentive, the goats & dog amazing and the 'Pig' very pleased to see you, especially if offering her food.

A Perfect Place to Stay

Just stayed for two weeks on this very pleasant site. The owner is very friendly and visits the field every day, followed by his sheepdog and two goats! We tried the organic beef, which I can highly recommend. There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby and some great dog walks, not only on the farm itself but also on the beaches at Sizewell and Dunwich. Leiston and Saxmundham are close by for food shopping and although we ourselves didn't eat out, there are some good pubs in the vicinity that serve meals. We'll definitely be going back next year.

A lovely hideaway

We stayed here last weekend, having been a couple of times before. I'm happy to say that it is still a lovely, peaceful site, with excellent views and walks around the farm. The owners are very friendly and they sell lovely organic meat in their shop. Sheep Meadow is within minutes of Leiston and Saxmumndham and a short drive to Aldeburgh and Southwold. Highly recommended!

Summer break

The site is well kept, grass cut and collected.the shower block consists of 1 private toilet and one room with 2 toilets and 1 shower,however the shower has only a curtain across so you have to lock the main door.toilets and shower were clean but found the sinks were grimy,so only washed our hands in them.the owner's were very friendly and didn't rush to collect the money.we picked the site as we wanted to use the local buses , found they are more than a mile away and very infrequent so had to use our car instead.

Wonderful break

This site is all that we look for when getting away. The White family welcomed us as if we were "Whites." As a towny I was overawed by the beauty of the herds of red organically reared South Devon cows . [But pretty as they are I would still recommend the steaks and burgers available from the farm shop.] Mr. White Sr. works through the day closely accompanied by two goats! [Gerry and Margo] who are kept in line by the dignified, aged farm collie Forest. This quartet delighted my grandsons no end and they could not believe it when Mr. White introduced them to his enormous pig which squeals with delight when called to eat the scraps of food that caravan club members save for her. A wonderful site that is a credit to the Caravan Club.

Very nice CL site

We didn't experience any if the issues mentioned by a previous reviewer.  This is a nice CL and we would certainly use it again.

Second time around

Visited last weekend from the second time. We were concerned after reading the previous review but experienced none of the issues mentioned. The CL was fully occupied and there is a separate field near the farmhouse but we had no idea how many vans were on there as we saw nothing of the other guests. The Barn was used for a wedding reception on Saturday so we had a bonus of seeing the the bridal party and guests when they arrived. Music until midnight - it was loud but not a problem for us and ended bang on time with no noise as the guests left. They had hired in their own posh loos so no impact on the CL facilities. We will be back
