Nice CL, but...........not a 5 Van site

We have just spent a week here.  If I was to rate the site as just the CL field it would be good. It has pleasant views, friendly owners and plenty of space.  The road behind was quite noisy at times.  My main annoyance of the site was the fact that the site has three more fields for caravans and tents, which all use the sites facilities (1 shower and 2 toilets).  When we were there the CL was full (5 vans), another field behind the farmhouse had 6 vans/motorhomes, another field next to the farmhouse has a caravan and motorhome and the field above the CL had three caravans and two tents.  There was a constant queue for the facilities, at one point, people were turning up in their cars to use them.  None of this is mentioned in the site description, so if you are looking for a true 5 van site, then avoid it.  If you dont mind queing for the facilities and having people constantly banging and kicking the door when you are using them, then go for it.  Unfortunately, we would not visit again.

Excellent

We spent 10 nights on this site over Easter and enjoyed every minute of it. Its a great area with the coast only a short drive away. The farm is great, we met Gerry and Margo the family goats which followed the farmer everywhere, quite amusing! We bought meat from the farm shop which was wonderful, as well as local honey and apple juice. Its great to be able to buy local produce and steer clear of the supermarket where possible. Will defo have a return visit. Lucy Tony Charlie & George

Great place

Just stayed here for almost a week, our first time here but we will definitely be returning.  It's a lovely place, not far from minsmere, sizewell, Leiston so good base.  The owners are really nice, and there's some good paths to follow across the fields.  Look out for the brown and white goat he likes to eat books.

Pleasant Stay

We spent 8 nights on this delightful site run by a charming couple. Where else would you see steam engines going along the drive and enjoy music from a barn dance on a Saturday night ? Set within a working farm with views across the fields and within easy reach of the Suffolk beauty spots we will certainly return when in Suffolk again ! The steak is also superb !

A nice quiet site

Stayed for 3 nights on the overspill site near the house, solid fairly level field with water and primitive hookup. We were the only ones on this field, which we were told we would be on when we booked, field of cows next door, no probs, but there were thousands of flies everywhere, I've never seen so many, my motorhome was covered in fly s**t when we arrived home, took a good wash to clean it. Very good access to places of interest and lovely quiet minor roads for cycling as well, we will return at some point.

When is a CL not a CL?

I booked via the phone being asked for full membership details by mrs white, all good then? Well no, we arrived late afternoon to find 6 outfits already on the CL field! I phoned the house and was told I was on the 'wrong field', drive through farmyard and park on fenced off grass at the end. Where are the facilities? Well, none except a tap, not what it states in CC book. Hold on, there is electric, but not as we know it......a heavy duty electric reel running from a barn, across a ditch and over to us and supplied with a plastic bag and half a blue tub.....to protect it from the rain....not really health and safety, nor very CC! MR White seemed to think it OK anyway, so no toilet or shower nor rubbish bins as advertised on their blurb for us down on the 'billy no mates' field, but it was peaceful. He did 'only' charge us £10.50 for the night, but not sure it makes it right does it? Yes I know we could have left, but it is full on holiday time, spaces on honourable CL hard to come by, so we stayed. Were we unlucky or is overbooking common?

Keep this a secret!!

What a lovely site and such a wonderful family. We have just returned from our Easter break (first visit) to this CL. We were lucky to be around at the end of calving - 5 born this weekend and we saw two just a short while after they arrived. Bought some steaks and can't wait to try them -sorry calves!! Mr White senior is such an great character and his dog Mr Forest and two pygmy goats follow him around. This is a CL you want to keep to yourself because if too many people find out about it, you might not be able to get in another time. Great meal at the Eels Foot , good for visiting Southwold, Dunwich Heath and Aldeburgh. We will return - hopefully soon.

Beautiful site

Stayed here for 5 nights and had a wonderful relaxing time. Located in a beautiful area of Suffolk, near to RSPB Minsmere site. A map shows walks around the farm. Camping area lovely and flat (except for the moles !) and grassy with hard standing if required. On an organic farm which has a farm shop selling their own and local produce. Bought 2 lovely beef fillets from their own herd which were delicious and SO tender. Lovely friendly welcome and very helpful. Facilities basic but perfectly clean and well kept. As organic farmers they were into recycling and our food waste went to feed the pig. Will definately visit again.
