This wooded site is great for cyclists, walkers and nature lovers. A very peaceful site although it was mid-week, no noise from the bar area and found the bar staff very friendly. Nice meals available there too for around a tenner for mains and a couple of real ales to wash it down with. Reception ok but not overly so. Toilets/showers clean and functional. Plenty of walks around, we walked along the beach to the Ship Inn, Dunwich and retuned via the road and public footpath. Also did a circular route which took in Minsmere bird reserve. Dunwich Heath itself holds plenty of wildlife, saw Dartford Warblers there by day and an evening walk revealed Nightjars over our heads at dusk. Perhaps a bit dear at 25/night but I guess its the location.

We stayed for one night as part of a tour of the area. We found the staff helpful and friendly and the site well maintained with good facilities. Our pitch was indeed near the sea which was only a short walk down the cliff, but it was set, like all the other touring pitches, in woodland so you couldn't actually see the sea from it.

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 went during the school half term but the site was far from full. Most if not all the pitches are under trees and have just a covering of bark on the ground, not a big issue for us until the rain splashed loads of mud up the sides of the canvas of our tent.

Toilets and showers were always clean and staff friendly.

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.

Reviewer: Bouzoukigirl 18 reviews from this member

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.
