Reviewer: Ottos Mum 1 review from this member

 Very disappointed with this Camp Site. We had to stay 3 nights which was too long. It was very expensive, but that is more about the location.

All facilities closed. The water tap by emptying point was hanging off. No hand sanitiser, which is not acceptable bearing in mind the facilities were closed due to infection risk.

The weather was lovely, which made up for the stay. No security at night, as gate stayed open all night. Vehicles moving about in the early hours. Won’t bother again,

Aldeburgh was very busy, which was lovely to see. The fresh fish available was gorgeous. Plenty of choice of ice cream. Had a wonderful meal in Lighthouse Restaurant.

 Another visit to Church farm and all good, except, the toilet / shower block was closed, which I think is a bit of a cop out as I understand by law they are allowed to open them, but have chosen not to and no reduction in site fee.

Accept most have on board facilities, but not really acceptable.

Also, reception frequently not manned at all.

Because of this I have to rate lower than I would normally.

 This is a huge site. Although over half is taken up by statics there is good separation and the touring pitches are large, well spaced and well equipped.

In fact it can be a long walk to the facilities and reception. Tents are not permitted. WiFi is free but a bit slow.

The 64 bus takes you from the town (a 5 minute walk away) to Woodbridge and Ipswich.

The one significant downside is the horrendous cost. At £44 per night for 2 people with electricity it's virtually double what we normally pay and, apart from the convenient location, is not good value for money.

 I would agree with all the previous reviews; its very attractive site, with high hedges around the pitches for privacy. Our pitch backed onto the conservation area, so the birdsong was a delight.

The beach and famous cockle shell sculpture is just across the road and its a 5 minute walk into Aldeburgh. Lovely walks close by meant we didn't have to use the car. Each pitch has its own electricity, water and waste drain.

We used our own shower etc so I can't comment on the showers but the facilities were heated and clean. There are superior pitches with hard standing and fake grass alongside available.

Reception was friendly and helpful. There were a couple of well behaved children on site, but if you want a playground and evening discos for the kids, this is not the place for you!

We paid £25 for a couple and one dog; this may seem expensive, but its worth it for the location and we will definitely go back.

 This is one of the most expensive sites in the UK from my experience -so you would expect something special. The pitches are fine and the site is very well kept. It a short walk into Aldeburgh and there is plenty to do in the town and surrounding area. So far so good.

My main issue is with the shower blocks (both male and female). The few showers (£20 deposit for the electronic key) are always clean so no problem there. However, they are all electric. We went to the site a week after it opened for the season and so you would expect all facilities to be in tip top condition.

Not so. There are 3 male showers and all three had a problem of one sort or another. Either broken shower heads, very low pressure or stone cold or scalding hot water (very dangerous). This was exactly the same in the female showers. We talked to other campers and they had all complained before us yet when we complained we were met with the comment that it was news to them!

So, a potentially great site but spoiled by poor facilities and a high price. Disappointing. I hope that they can sort these problems out soon

 Fantastic location - a short walk to the beach and 5-10 mins into centre of Aldeburgh. Longer 20 -30 mins walk to Thorpeness.

Good size pitches - most surrounded by hedges. Clean site which appeared well maintained. Reception open 9-5 - if you arrive after this time before 8pm your plot is marked by a cone with info attached.

Reception has some food items - soft drinks, snacks etc. Supermarket a short distance away - walkable. Also lots of shops/ pubs/restaurants in Aldeburgh - which appears very gentile and upmarket!

Some touring pitches back on to a main road so expect a little road noise but appeared not too busy.

Clean shower block which is accessed by a keycard ( £20 deposit refunded on departure)- Ladies has about 9 toilets and 4 shower cubicles - which did cause the need to wait for a shower at times - especially in the school holidays if you happen open a family group showering at the same time! Also no mop/ squeegee evident to clean shower after use - which with the amount of usage seemed odd? Only a couple of washing up sinks - again seemed a bit mean for number of pitches available. No recycling facility on site that I could find.

Overall would return because of the fantastic location - looking at prices in the town the highish cost of the pitch reflects the area.

 Very clean and well maintained campsite. Pitches are very well equipped and set out. With the nearby town of Aldeburgh (about 5 minutes walk) an absolute delight. The site is not cheap, however, and is the most expensive we have known all year and last year. A site that charges such prices should provide flawless services. The toilet block is clean, true! It's the showers that concern me. I appreciate they have gone to the trouble of installing domestic showers but what comes out of them is little less than a dribble. The lady I was with mentioned the complaints she heard from ladies having trouble washing and rinsing there hair. This may seem picky and churlish, given all the plusses attached to this site, but if this is sorted this could be one of the best there is!

Reviewer: Robbie_redcote 11 reviews from this member

 This was our 4th visit to this site in 4 years, and it is still as good as ever. We were booked onto pitch 56, with 7 foot privet on 3 sides so very private. Shower / toilet block as ever spotless.

Pitch plenty big enough for caravan, awning car and large area for deck chairs and table to sit out and take in the sun, and with the large privet, very secluded.

This site has water and grey waste on each pitch, the price includes awning, dogs etc. So all in. We paid £25 per night over a weekend in June 2017 which considering that is the total, excellent value.

There is supposed to be WiFi and the very pleasant lady in reception supplied 2 pass codes, but the reception was virtually non existent.

Aldeburgh is a very interesting town to explore and Thorpeness, with it's house in the clouds, just a mile down the road.

Excellent site, can't wait to go back.

Reviewer: Beilby 8 reviews from this member

 A wonderful site a short walk to Aldeburgh with its excellent variety of fresh fish stalls and eating places. The longer walk to Thorpeness is also well worth it. The pitches on site are spacious and benefit from being surrounded by hedges. The bathroom facilities clean and well maintained. The staff we encountered were very friendly and accommodating. We will certainly be back.

 Great find! Taking advantage of the fabulous weather after school holidays. Perfect location 30 min walk along sea front into town past fishing boats and fish sheds or 45 min walk other way to Thorpness or footpath round site to various destinations. Spacious mainly individually hedged pitches with own fresh and waste water and electric. Could do with more hooks or shelves and a floor squeegee in washrooms. And maybe some essentials in reception shop but apart from that, perfect! Great not to be charged for dogs on private site. Free Wifi although coverage fairly poor. Will be back soon!
