Date of Visit: September 2021  Confirmed Booking Unit:  Touring Caravan
Nights stayed: 11 Travelling as:  Other
Reviewer: Sward1 1 review from this member

 I stayed for 11 nights on touring caravan pitch with 5amp hook up (most are 10amp). I was told I could always move my caravan as 10 amp hook up would provide a lot more electrical appliances, especially if all switched on at the same time. To be honest, I didn't have any problems with the 5amp usage on any appliance.

The toilets and showers could be used by both sexes, there are no female or male toilets - like the old days. The amenities were clean and tidy.

There are several recycling bins and 2 outdoor wash basins (under a roof though). There was a notice board, but I didn't see any local places of interest advertised.

For instance, there's Leiston Abbey, Dunwich Heath, Rspb Minsmere and a very nice traditional fish and chips at Leiston!

On the whole I enjoyed this peaceful site, as there are many plots to choose from but I assume this site is packed during the school holidays.

One last important reminder, take care on leaving this site as the road can be busy from both directions.

If you get a chance, gaze at the stars at night without any light pollution and listen out to the owls calling!

Reviewer: Hotboppincat 1 review from this member

 Had an absolutely awesome 5 nights here in our tent, nice well mown flat firm pitch (very hard, I assume it had been dry for a while, but this is good because they didnít pull out with the wind, take decent pegs, I used Tarzan pegs and a big hammer, and screw in pegs with a drill-driver),

With electric hookup and water point adjacent (clean portable water points are all over the place near the electric hook ups),

Clean showers (not on a timer) and toilets, with washing machine and tumbler facilities, microwave, kettle, fridge, freezer, washing up areas with big catering type sinks amongst other things.

Communal area to sit in under cover with sofas chairs and tables should the weather turn too rough. Friendly folk, no deposit required, showers (50p) and clothes washing/drying is extra (2 quid a wash load, 2 quid a tumble load, which we used, but you pay in full to include all costs when you leave.

Nice and quiet at night. No shop on site, but Leiston is very close with a Co-Op, hardware stores, clothing shops, Chinese, Fish And Chips, Italian, Kebabs, pizza, but far enough out of town on the edge of farmland to be peaceful with no traffic noise, no dislikes at all.

Local pubs selling Adnams, (Broadside gravity fed at Middleton Bell), easy reach of Woodbridge, Saxmundham, Southwold, Dunwich etc. Top site.

Will definitely return. Thanks very much. A+++++++++++++

 Love this site this is the 2nd time back this year.

Pitches are very spacious and great value for money.

Showers and toilets are cleaned often, indoor and outdoor washing up facilities. New is a room you can use with tables and chairs and a sofa.

Easy access to places such as Dunwich, Aldeburgh, Southwold and Sizewell. Great walks for your doorstep and although we didn't go there is a pub that is walkable from site.

Highly Recommend

 Lovely quiet campsite. Sheltered from the wind, thoughtful kind owners, friendly atmosphere,

Extremely clean and well located for local village, Leiston Abbey, RSPB Minsmere, Sizewell Beach, Dunwich, Snape Maltings and Aldeburgh.

Lots of lovely touches including a microwave in the kitchen, well-lit outside washing up area and freshly grown vegetables on sale.

We hope to be back before too long!

Reviewer: DeeBee77 1 review from this member

 This is a super campsite with really well maintained facilities.

Lovely, relaxed, hard working owners too! Very clean.

I think it may have been unusually busy this year with lots of groups meeting up. My one piece of advice would be, if you see 2 festival tents set up side by side with a caravan one side and a camper van/Tesla car the other side, donít pitch near them!

They were very noisy with music and partying between 4pm & midnight on 2 of our 4 nights stay which was a great shame.

Reviewer: Tamasi 1 review from this member

 Still the same lovely, friendly campsite but now with extra showers which are hot and clean.

Perfect campsite if you want a quieter more low key holiday but with great facilities.

Would highly recommend

 An excellent and well organised site with clean and well equipped facilities.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owner to do to ensure an enjoyable stay.

Thanks for your hospitality.

Reviewer: Nicola 1 review from this member

 What a fantastic campsite. Cannot fault anything.

Owners are so friendly and welcoming, they offer a very relaxed comfortable stay and itís so peaceful but has a family feel so your not worried if your children are playing!

We will most certainly be coming back next year.

Showers are clean and tidy with individual rooms. There are plenty of showers and toilets and a great washing up area.
