 Plenty of room for each caravan and chose where we wanted to go which was very nice. Site very clean and tidy and everyone respected the peace and quiet.

Enjoyed "Bloomers" daily visits to check all was well. Extremely helpful guy! Hope to return in September.

Easy walk to lovely Chinese, fish n chips and local Spar.

 Beautiful, well kept site in an idyllic rural location.

Field we stayed in had a real orchard feel with apple, pear and plum trees abound, and blackberry bushes.

Colin was atop bloke and couldn't have been more welcoming /friendly.
Highly recommend.

 Clockhouse caravan site is very well kept with large plots separated by trees and hedges.

Colin will help with any problem or just be there for you.

We will be returning to clockhouse next year and look forward to meeting Colin

 Lovely site with a very friendly owner who tours around throughout the day on a golf buggy, to check on /cheer everyone up.

The views over the Stour were limited, but there are great walks from the site and lovely villages and towns nearby.

We would definitely return.

Reviewer: Dr Zhivago 4 reviews from this member

 Stayed a few days in June. Some others were there, not many, but we were out sight-seeing during the days (quite a few stately homes etc). The site is level and well kept. In fact the owner, Colin, seems particular about the grass and provides short planks to go under caravan wheels.

The pitches in the area we used were of generous size and have hedge-like bushes and small trees between them giving some privacy - a nice arrangement. Colin let us choose our pitch. There is also a larger open field which I gathered is also used in busy times and possibly for rallies.

There have been a couple of comments about the owner putting up too many notices etc, which make him sound like the inspector from "On the Buses". In fact he is nothing of the sort; he is an affable guy who is obviously an enthusiast.

Facilities are basic (hook-ups, a couple of central water taps, and waste disposal), which suits me. There are only two toilets (unisex) and that could be a problem at busier times, although not when we were there. The entrance is through what was obviously once the farmyard, and its buildings seemed now to be used by a two or three low-key businesses of which you are not conscious on site.

The site is in countryside but the village of Glemsford is a short distance along the lane. It is not a picture postcard place but has a couple of convenience shops, at least one chippy and a Chinese, and a couple of basic-looking pubs (I did not try them). It would not be too bad towing a caravan through Glemsford but I approached from Cavendish anyway.

No-one has mentioned that by far the best place for eating near here is Long Melford, a very large (and long!) former coaching village a three mile drive to the east, with numerous pubs, cafe's and restaurants, and easy parking in the broad steet. Everything is covered from basic takaway to gourmet dining. Four miles to the west, the village of Clare has a large Co-op and several pub/restaurants.

 We have just come back from a much needed break and just happen to find this gem of a site on line. I can not praise Colin enough nothing, was too much trouble and we were made to feel so very welcome.

We were only there for one night but came home feeling so relaxed. We will definitely be a regular from now on.

Reviewer: Robbie_redcote 11 reviews from this member

 I can only echo what most previous reviewers have stated, this is an excellent site, both for layout and helpfulness of the owners. Colin in particular is absolutely Mr Helpful as he drives around on his little golf buggy. Likes to stop and chat and give useful local info, and nothing seems too much trouble for him. He helped me site my van and placed the boards (he supplied) under the wheels, a tip I must admit in 10 years of caravaning I have never done.

The local fish and chips shop, 5 minute walk was excellent and we have never had such large, 'medium' cod, they had to be broken in three to fit in the wrapping.

Of course 'villages' of Long Melford, Lavenham, and Clare all within a few miles, as is Sudbury, and all worth a visit.

As is well documented, there are no shower facilities but with modern caravans I do not see this as an issue, and the layout, peaceful site more than make up for this, and at 15 a night, no extra for awning, a good deal. Therefore I can only rate as 9/10 overall because of the lack of showers, but the rest is definitely 10+ / 10

Reviewer: Countrylemon 12 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for a lovely weekend in October. The main draw for us was the being in a rural setting yet within 5 minutes walk to shops and amenities.

The site itself is in a lovely spot, as we had children with us we were sited on the lower field where there was ample room to kick a ball around etc, and there was also 2 big swings which proved popular with our 3.

The Chinese Takeaway and Fish and Chip shop are less than 5 minutes walk away, we ate in at the Chinese on the Saturday evening - very good. As mentioned in another review the Premier convenience store on Hunts Hill has quite an emporium at the back as well as freshly baked pastries etc at the front of the shop. There are 2 pubs in the village and a Spar.

The lack of facilities on site - essentially just water, waste and loos, no showers or washing up - was more than compensated for by the fabulous countryside. There are plenty of great walks from the site with amazing views. We arrived via Clare and Cavendish, both lovely places we have yet to explore, as well as Long Melford

Bloomers was a diligent host and was keen to ensure all was well and could quite often be seen scooting around on his golf buggy. We will definitely be returning

Reviewer: Supersooty 18 reviews from this member

 We have just spent three nights at this lovely site. We were met by Colin 'Bloomers' who is very friendly and helpful. An ideal location to visit 'Constable Country', Lavenham and Long Melford.

The site is well-drained and level. The toilets are kept clean but, there is only cold water available for washing and no showers. If you are in a 'self-contained' MoHo etc, this will not bother you but, if you are in a campervan or tent, it may.

It is just a short walk into the village. There is a Post Office and small store next to the Chip shop, further into the village there is an excellent 'Premier' stores which is truly a 'mini-market' selling everything from bread to general hardware. We did eat at the Chinese restaurant and the food was superb.

All-in-all we enjoyed our stay at Clockhouse and if we visit the area again we will definitely book into Clockhouse again.
