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.
