I found this CL by chance whilst looking through the M&CC book for somewhere at very short notice in the Suffolk area for 3 days. Having read the reviews and after looking at their website I thought I’d give them a try, but expected them to be full. Luckly enough they had one space available for 3 days, it must have been fate!
Easy to find and first impressions were great. Level well cut grass area with hook up, loads of space between units. A warm welcome by Pat clear and concise instructions detailing all options regarding the use of Toilets/Showers, Fishing and Internet. Apparently they leave these options as “extras” because some visitors prefer to use their own facilities, or don’t fish or do not wish to use the Internet. Fare enough. Breaking down these options means they only charge £11 per night including hook up. For this site with the location and superb grounds £11 is an absolute bargain. I selected to splash out and paid the extra £4.50 to use their spotless facilities, so £12.50 per night. Still a bargain!
I had a walk around the grounds and bumped into Steve, Pats husband. He showed me all the various features they have created in the couple of acres or so of land they have converted to a ‘reserve’. I just couldn’t believe the amount of work they both put into this place. The grounds, described by another reviewer, as a nature reserve couldn’t be more accurate. Steve has prepared superb areas for all wildlife to thrive. He has even built a bird hide! The centre point of the grounds is the fantastic lake which is very well stocked with Carp, Roach and Rudd. Many photographs were taken and many fish caught, Carp up to 8.5lb.
I have already booked my next visit when Steve has promised me a teach in on another of his hobbies, Lepidoptera.
