Great site

We stayed at this site with our 2 dogs over the August bank holiday weekend. Lots to do in the local area. Just search online for things to do. Halstead is a short drive away. Site is secure. Highly recommended. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

What a Gem

Just returned home from a four day visit to The Paddocks. What a wonderful experience it has been. As previous reviews have stated it is a us a gem of a site. Great views on an emacalate kept grass pitch's with EHU yet set informally with plenty of space. Jason is the most welcoming host you could meet and nothing was to much trouble and always contactable if needed. Together with Sophie they run a great stable and showjumping establishment. One highlight of the day is to see their talanted son collect one of the horses from the Paddock and ride it bareback to the stable. Set on the Suffolk and Essex border there are to many attractions locally to mention here but you will find sufficient to do whatever your taste. Liked it so much I will return with other Caravanning friends but with all the excellent reviews the Paddocks are getting I guess we will have to book early to find a spare pitches. Well done Jason and Sophie in only your 2nd year of cl ownership. You have got it spot on

Stunning CL - Highly Recommend

We decided to stay a few extra days after attending North Essex Centres Pre Season Dinner at nearby Chelmsford, scanning the sites handbook we came across ‘The Paddock’ a quick telephone call revealed that spaces were available and we arrived an hour or so later at this beautiful location with a stunning lake in direct view of our pitch. The site owners were very welcoming and friendly, we felt very secure with coded entry into the site. Jason’s recommendations on local eateries were spot on, we can highly recommend‘The Cod Father’ in nearby Sudbury, Suffolk’s best fish and chip shop. We opted to eat in, the service was second to none and prices very reasonable. We walked our dogs daily around the lake and enjoyed chats with locals fishing. We can highly recommended this CL and will be returning next time we are in the area. Darren & Cheryll Caravaners, Kent

Beautiful CL

Don’t miss an opportunity to stay here, such an idyllic setting. Really friendly owners who couldn’t do enough to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Great views looking over the lake and fields of horses. If you do fancy a ride, there’s a horse riding school just up the road. This isn’t our first stay here and it definitely won’t be the last!

Wonderful CL - would highly recommend!

Echoing others who have stayed here, it's a perfect CL in beautiful surroundings! We had a pitch next to the horses and opposite the lake, wonderful to sit relaxing in your caravan with the view! The owners are great, Jason even popped us in some (12!!!) eggs from their own chickens (we'd forgotten ours - eggs that is - not chickens!) and made sure we had everything we needed. Many thanks for a great stay and would highly recommend if you're ever in the area and needing a bolt hole away from it all.

sunny weekend

This lovely little site is exactly what we look for when away for the weekend. Jason and Sophie could not have been more welcoming. We were alone on the site for the majority of our time there so could enjoy the beautiful setting in peace and quiet, taking advantage of the fabulous weather. There are a multitude of interesting and lovely places to visit, most with attractive pubs! We will definitely be back.

Beautiful Quiet Cl

We have just returned home after staying at Catley Cross for nine nights & had a wonderful relaxing time.There is plenty of space for 5 caravans & it is set in a very good location between Sudbury & Halstead. The lake setting is lovely & we went out in the rowing boat when there was no one fishing. There are lovely walks along the river near Sudbury & surrounding countryside. We were surprised how quiet the site was for the end of May; we were the only caravan there for most of our stay.

Lovely CL

A great CL! Loved every bit of our weekend stay here. The owners are lovely and are indeed as welcoming as the previous reviews suggest. It’s lovely to walk around the lake and see the fish and other wildlife. We were pitched with views of the horses, which my daughter loved too. A short distance from Halstead and Sudbury town if you need shopping, also a great farm shop a mile down the road where you can pick your own fruit if you wish. Booked to return already!
