Absolutely loved this site, the access to the beach is brilliant, so close! We walked around Dunwich Heath everyday and saw lots of wildlife including a very close encounter with a herd of red deer one morning, stunning and never to be forgotten. As it was half term the National Trust tea rooms were open and there were quite a few people about which added to our enjoyment, being a Suffolk girl who now lives a long way from home, I didn't want to leVe! Having a bar and restaurant on site. Was a bonus especially such a lovely space as this one is, nice staff and good service along with the good food, what a result! Showers etc are kept spotlessly clean and very warm which is important when you are winter camping. All in all this is now one of my favourite sites ever and we will definitlly be a k.

We had quite specific criteria for our first camp of the season and Cliff House delivered on all them. We wanted somewhere with a bar and games room for warm entertainment for the long winter evenings, a site that wouldn't turn into a mudbath at the first sign of rain, decent facilities, in a beautiful part of the country and of course good value for money.

The 12 Lost Churches became our regular hideout. The bar staff were really friendly, the 'giant' games kept us entertained and the free wifi provided a great way to unwind at the end of the day and research the next day's adventure.

We pitched in the 'sunken garden', which despite being more mud / bark than grass, wasn't actually muddy. I guess the trees did their job but without blocking all the sun. Even in Feb we had 3 glorious mornings of sunshine, accompanied by a glistening sea view.

The wash block was good with hot powerful showers and a separate room for washing up. My only gripe here was that we wereted half an hour one morning trying to find somewhere to brush our teeth as the sign said the block was closed for cleaning at 10:30 and to use the north block. We finally found it but it was closed and resorted to using the bar which I think had just opened at 11am. The facilities weren't well used enough to get dirty as everyone mopped after themselves anyway!

No doubt about it there is some beautiful scenery here. Dunwich Heath NT is just down the road and we also ventured into Dunwich village, Walberswick and Southwold. If you love walking and nature this is a great location however we felt we had exhausted all cheap day out options within a 10 mile radius for the winter season. The museum was closed, Orford Ness NT was closed etc. In summer this would be a different story, however in summer, for us, there are other places we would rather go. A lovely place to visit for a quiet break, if you're undeterred by the feel that each road you drive down becomes a dead end because the village fell into the sea. It makes a very interesting history for Dunwich, but driving everywhere feels very laborious.

All in all, great value for money, a fantastic campsite with great facilities. Would we come back?. Maybe when we're middle-aged; I feel we've experienced all this area has to offer for now.

We stayed here for five nights after making a booking by phone during our holiday. There were only two pitches available but we were given good advice about which one was the most suitable (that is, quiet and away from the playground!). We were in a small area near the entrance and, yes, it was quiet. The new toilet and shower block was warm and clean although one shower in the ladies' was blocked and even though I reported it, it remained blocked for the time we were there. Dish washing facilities were good with plenty of hot water. The shop had enough of the sort of things you run out of - milk, bread bacon eggs etc. The bar was noisy but the free wifi was welcome. We didn't try the restaurant so can't comment there. Nice to stroll around the site in the evening and it was brilliant to be able to access the beach albeit via a very long and steep stairway. The location is fabulous. Dunwich Heath was awash with heather and Minsmere reserve is fantastic. We will certainly return.

We stayed for two nights - 2 adults & 2 kids.

We had pitch with hook-up on the West Field (under trees).

The site has good facilities - we used the shower/toilet block attached to the main bar/restaurant/reception building. No issues - only gripe would be showers had short time on the push-button, so just have to keep pressing it! To be fair they were warm and clean. Washing up facilities also OK, with plenty of hot water.

Site has kids playground next to the bar/entertainment building and quick access to beach means space there for kids to play too.

Can see that if you are close to playground/bar then could be some noise later on (depending on fellow campers) - there was a karaoke evening when we were there, but fortunately no spill out from the bar, so just muffled singing(?)/music from the building.

Site is in a great location, we enjoyed visiting Dunwich (good little museum and Flora's Tea Rooms by the beach) and Southwold, a little further away. Kids enjoyed splashing about in the sea and plenty of space on the beach.

Reviewer: Bikerphil 11 reviews from this member

We used to spend a week here every June, and many times we would return again in September. Three or four years ago we became very disappointed with the site as it was clear that it was becoming very upmarket, more and more log cabins were being constructed, and the staff seemed to be less accommodating to campers. We found another site which we enjoy greatly, however we thought we would give it another try in September and arrived as we were passing through. We hadn't pre-booked as we were touring and taking each day at a time. There was availability but the staff were so rude to us that we chose not to stay. The only plus point for us with this site is location. Being close to the sea and adjacent to the heathland is great, but being made to feel small by the very rude staff doesn't make up for the location.

Just returned from two nights at Cliff House.

All the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Toilet/shower blocks are always nice and clean.

Good bar and restaurant, good food and reasonably price.

The only criticism is that the caravans and motor homes pitch on nice grass and we had to pitch on bark and mud with a trailer tent.

we were told we could move but we had set up for a day by then.

When we rebook to come back we are going to ask for a grass pitch.
