We have just returned from a lovely weekend at the Cliff House Holiday Park. This a lovely site with great amenities. The toilet block we used was brand new and immaculately kept clean. The site itself is right beside the sea which really made it a lovely place to stay. There is a bar and restaurant on site which are very modern and well kept, we didn't eat there but had a drink and sat out in the upstairs balcony. All in all this is a great place to stay.

My wife and I have just returned from three nights at this fantastic site. Very quiet due to being 'off peak', and the only tent on their 'new tent' electric hook up area. The facilities were adequate and very clean and I only saw one other person in the facility block! My only criticism here was that the automatic light switch facility plunged my shower into darkness as I was dressing! No doubt due to lack of people entering the block! Staff were efficient and friendly. An evening walk around the site enlightened us to the other pitches, most of which were well under trees, and it was very dark and damp. When we booked, we asked for a pitch without tree cover - the 'new tent area' is not tree free, but most pitches are not directly under them. I recommend this site and we will certainly return (off peak!).

Never fails. Love this site don't want to review in case it gets too popular. Location excellent. Service excellent. Standard excellent facilities excellent. 12 lost churches excellent Just spoils you going to other sites which aren't as good. We've been four times never disappointed never been bad weather either it must be magic. Love the row boat ferry from wabberswick to southwold.

Happy to agree with previous reviews published since I was last here May 2012. So in order to avoid repetition, Iíll just mention the following;

Main facilities block has received a major interior refurbishment. However, push button type shower taps with irritatingly short time settings retained.

Second brand new facilities block constructed which seems to serve area reserved for seasonal pitches.

Most pitches are under trees which makes for nice bird song, but you will find yourself covered in bird droppings. Also, in stormy conditions you might find debris from trees falling on you.

Site now open all year.

A personal recommendation: Nature activities for children on Dunwich Heath organised from Ranger Hut adjacent to National Trust Coastguard Cottages and Cafe.

To sum up: A first class site, but you might want to ask for a pitch which is not under trees.

We have stayed here twice in the self-catering cottages (in spring/autumn) and we love this site. We plan to come back next summer with our tent, so I can't comment on the camping facilities but purely on location, this site is a winner.

It's very quiet and beautiful, with direct access to the beach. You can walk along the beach to Dunwich village (nice pub and very interesting museum) or the other way to the (National Trust) Dunwich Heath.

One advantage is that you can hire bikes on site. To be honest, the bikes could do with a little more maintenance, but we usually manage to find ones that are serviceable and the rates are reasonable. You can then cycle up to Dunwich Forest or to the RSPB reserve at Minsmere.

The shop is basic (nearest supermarkets Saxmundham or Kelsale) and we have only tried the restaurant when it had a 'all you can eat buffet' night which we didn't really like but the bar is very nice.

If you choose to stay in the self catering cottages, they are very well equipped and also a reasonable price. Looking forward to going back and trying out the camping.

Just back from a 6 night stay at Cliff House. We arrived Sunday evening, and left Saturday morning. Campsite was very quiet until the Friday night, when the weekenders arrived and it got a lot busier.

Washing/Showering/washup facilities were good, clean and functional, but I am not sure they are plentiful enough for a full site - The site was virtually empty when we were there, so it was fine, but as it got busier on the friday night / saturday, my wife had to regularly wait to use a sink or toilet.

We were in pitch 214, which was bark based, and under the trees, but was sheltered and flat and a decent size, and only seconds from the beach. We liked the fact that the trees sheltered the site from the winds, but with the obvious drawback of bird droppings and sap/twigs on the tent come take down time.

The on site shop was functional, but we had some fantastic produce from Emmerdales farm shop in Yoxford, down the road. The Ship Inn in Dunwich does lovely beer. We had a few drinks also in the on site bar, but didn;t sample the food. We hired bikes from on site, but I was disappointed with the quality of these, will take my own next time.

Overall, we loved the site, and would definitely return, but will avoid weekends and high season, as I think the site would feel very different when full.
