Details : Nestled in tranquil countryside amid local village amenities (public house, shop and post office), Rookery Farm Certificated Location is a flat, grassy site, conveniently situated near to the A12 and just 6 miles from the Suffolk’s picturesque Heritage Coast. The site consists of well-maintained grassland and hedgerows with electric hook-up (16 amp) and drinking water for each pitch. The traditional Georgian seaside resort of Southwold, complete with sandy beaches and many appealing attractions, is just minutes away from the caravan site. Nearby Walberswick and Dunwich, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, have heaths and marshlands to explore and there are numerous other attractive walks or cycle rides in the surrounding area.

Rookery Farm Certificated Location also gives you convenient access to Minsmere (RSPB) and Orford (National Trust) nature reserves; Aldeburgh, with its internationally renowned concert hall of Snape Maltings; the medieval castle at Framlingham; Lowestoft, the most easterly point in the United Kingdom, gateway to the Broads and home to a prestigious Blue Flag beach; and the fascinating town of Woodbridge, home to the Anglo-Saxon burial ground of Sutton Hoo. Closer to home, there are the remains of Bigod Castle in Bungay, the sixteenth Century bell tower in Beccles, various National and Regional cycle routes or the long distance Angles Way footpath to explore. The local market town of Halesworth, with its attractive pedestrian thoroughfare, offers fine dining, local produce and much more. The Cut Theatre hosts the Gig-in-the-Park (showcasing local, national and international musical talent) during August and an Arts Festival in the autumn, or there is the Latitude Festival on the Henham Estate in July, which is just a stone’s throw away. The area has numerous outstanding public houses and restaurants where you can sample the local Adnams or Saint Peter’s beer, Aspalls cyder or the award winning Shawsgate or Wissett wines.

With all these attractions and more events throughout the year, the area has a varied appeal that certainly will not disappoint. Whatever your holiday aspirations, Rookery Farm is conveniently situated to ensure these are fulfilled.

Another Visit and Not Disappointed

Returned to this lovely CL for our second visit. Just as we remembered from our first time. Everything is kept in such good order. Electric and water (water shared by two pitches) are on each pitch. The grass is kept like a lawn. Kathryn and Peter work so hard to keep the CL perfect. They also sell their own honey and free-range eggs. We will certainly return.


Outstanding site

We visited this site in May ,with a grandchild. The delay in reviewing this outstanding site is due to my IT failings. The owners were extremely friendly, but not intrusive. The site is immaculate. We all enjoyed our visits to the local shop, far more than our visit to the huge supermarket nearby. There is a toilet on-site. I can thoroughly recommend this CL. and the surrounding area has much to offer. Thank you to the owners for providing an excellent site.


One of the best cl

Spent nine nights here in June 18.The site is very clean and tidy ,all grass cut short, and picked up Full service pitches The owners were very friendly, but kept out of your way. While we were staying here ,we looked at a lot of cl in the area ,and this has to be the best one by far Would I stay here again Ever week if I did not live 250 miles away


Great site

Great site and location. Found this site and was not disappointed. The owner was very welcoming and was happy to give us information about the area. Very quiet with lots of bird life and if lucky you may catch site of the local barn owl. Perhaps a future project could be a shower room, that was the only negative for us. Apart from that we had a lovely couple of days. Dave and Gale Ashenden.


Lovely honey

We stayed on this CL for 4 nights in early May. The site is clean and well maintained, and the owners were very welcoming. The pitches are level, spacious and are all grass, but the ground seems to be well drained. There are the usual 16 amp hook-up points, and there are fresh water taps on the bollards. These are each shared between 2 pitches (contrary to what previous reviewers have stated). The location is very peaceful, and the surrounding countryside is lovely. There are plenty of opportunities for easy cycling on flat terrain. The lanes are often quite narrow, but there is not much traffic, and the open aspect of the countryside means that visibility is good. There is some helpful local information available in the information room, and also an OS map of the area on the wall - this was very useful when planning cycle rides. A ride to Southwold is easily doable, even for low level/inexperienced cyclists like ourselves. Finally, we must recommend the home produced honey. It really is lovely - and we now wish that we had bought 2 jars. The eggs were also very good. Would definitely stay here again if/when we have another holiday in this area.
