 We have stayed at apple fields many times and always enjoyed our stay but this time we left early because at night teenage children were messing around in and out of the shower block and making a mess.

Also dogs were not kept on leads and left to run about untended. Maybe cct cameras should be put in place.

Maybe this is just a one off we will go back as we like the camp site and its location.

Reviewer: Snooksdog 1 review from this member

 Loved this site, easy to find from main road, no silly dirt tracks. Sue the owner was lovely and told us to pay at end of stay by leaving cash in an envelope. Add 50p for each shower.

Facilities on site were clean shower units with sink n toilet in the same room and a separate room with use of microwave, washing machines, washing up sinks indoors. Outdoor dog wash area. 5 minutes walk to village with pubs, fish n chip shops, museum, supermarket.

We drove to RSPB minsmere and spent all day never seen so many birds n lucky enough to spot an otter. Sizewell beach n cafe a short drive away, both worth a visit. Well spaced pitches and plenty of space. Will definitely go back with friends. We had electricity n water tap 30 secs away.

Beautiful wild flower hedges n different varieties of trees bordering fences etc. So relaxing. A large group of tents with children were all sited at the far end of the pitch n all seemed to be enjoying themselves with campfires also allowed.

We liked it that this had a personal, loved touch to the site it not just a money-making venture, where you can hear the people’ in the next tent snoring (which happened the following week at a site in Norfolk, which cost double the amount paid at this site)

A very relaxing weekend, the weather was fantastic which always makes a difference. Fact that you can arrive and leave when you’re ready is a real bonus.

Reviewer: ScoobySH300 1 review from this member

 Second visit this year, although the site was full it doesn’t quiet seem full, the big grass area in the centre of the site seems to give a feeling of space.

Four showers each with loo’s and an extra couple of separate loo’s, haven’t had to wait for a shower yet.

Easy cycle ride to Aldrburgh and Minsmere on not too busy roads once you leave the main Leiston road.

Plus, it’s only a short walk into town for food, take away’s or a pub.

Very friendly owners don’t live on site but are generally around a few times a day.

Showers and loo’s are cleaned twice a day, washing up area, grey water and cassette emptying area’s.

Honestly box system for site fee’s and showers, I hope people don’t take advantage and ruin the goodwill shown by the site owners.

If the weathers poor and anyone’s struggling for grip there’s even a tractor around to get you moving.

We’ve been coming here for a few years now and after our recent visit we hope to coming for many more.

 This is a superb site, we have been going here several times a year, since 2014. I thought I had done a review here previously but it appears I haven't.

The site is very well kept and the owners work very hard to keep it that way. The toilet blocks are unisex and are individual rooms each with a large shower hand basin and toilet. The site is managed very much on a trust basis which we particularly like, if you don't see the owners during your stay you put your payment in the envelope provided with your details a very very rare thing these days. The pitches are large with no rules on which way round to pitch. We love it there due to the cleanliness and the way its managed.

There is loads to do in the area, with places to visit in a short drive like Snape Maltings, Southwold and Aldburgh to name a few. In the small town of Leiston there is a supermarket several take aways catering for all tastes there's a small cinema pubs and many other shops and a museum also.

All in all this site is a perfect place to be for a relaxing weekend away or for a longer stay for families to enjoy.

 Lovely site. Lots of space. Not too big. Fantastic facilities: electric showers so always hot; indoor kitchen area with microwave, communal fridge and freezer, toaster, washing machine; dog wash area; indoor chilling/ play/ dining room for escaping any rain. Very reasonable prices.

Well located for Southwold/ Aldeburgh/ Snape Maltings. Family-run. No shop on site, but on edge of Leiston which has co-op etc. Clean and well maintained.

Reviewer: Climo 6 reviews from this member

 A delightful site, flat open field situated well off the road so quiet and peaceful. Shops in walking distance.

Toilets though a bit dated were very clean & well kept.

Owners extremely helpful. Very good value and camping at its best.

Reviewer: Nellyspania 3 reviews from this member

 This is a proper little gem of a campsite!

Quiet, cheap, loads of space and well placed for the coast (few miles to Aldeburgh).

Facilities are ok too, no shop on site but only a few minutes walk into Leiston.

One of the best campsites we've been to; if you want just a quiet fuss-free site to stay at then I would recommend here.

Reviewer: LenMinter 1 review from this member

 Superb site, very peaceful and quiet, lovely, helpful owner. Nice showers and toilets, only 4 units on the field when we visited and so very quiet, the way we like it. Close to Aldeburgh and Southwold. Payment made when you leave the site. We will definitely be returning.

Reviewer: Lizziemini 3 reviews from this member

 It takes a lot to impress me, but Applefields certainly did that. The facilities were spotlessly clean, even over the bank holiday weekend, when it was properly busy! And never a wait for a shower or the loo.

It was value for money (cheap sounds naff, but it was cheap, when we went £15pn for a family of 4 with a marquee of a tent AND electric hook up).

It was convenient for the coast and central for both up to Aldeburgh and Southwold and down to Woodbridge.

The owners have left a bit of the site wild for the kids to make dens, mud ramps for their bikes and general kid fun!

The site is flat, very well drained and easily accessible for all types of accommodation, a truck sized unit was on site when we were there, it was huge!

And if you aren't keen on kids, the site it big enough to get away from them ;-)

We are not a family to return to a campsite more than once (too much to see in the UK for us!) but we are returning in 2018 (booking just sent!)
