This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.
Our site is on part of our 5 acre smallholding in the Suffolk countryside. We are within easy reach of several small coastal towns and villages and we have tourist information and maps onsite. A good area for walking, cycling and birdwatching. Fresh eggs and seasonal produce usually available.

This is our first season with a caravaning and our first experience of a cs site. If they are all up to this standard we will be using them a lot next year. All the coastal villages locally are worth a
Visit. Sutton hoo is not too far away and we spent quite some time there and found it very interesting. Snape Maltings is also worth a visit but can be very busy at times. All in all a central place to explore the local area and still be able to come back to the peace and quiet. We certainly will be returning.

This was our first time venturing out overnight in our new campervan so were not too sure what to expect from a CS. Very pleased with our stay at Fareacre. Plenty of space to park up in either of the fields, we went for electric hook up just to test it worked for us. Electric HU was the further of the two areas from the toilets but that was no trouble. Toilets and shower were clean and tidy. Hot water was plentiful in the shower, the floor is concrete and I guess could be a bit chilly underfoot if you are sensitive to that sort of thing. Friendly owners who met us on arrival and showed us round, and fresh eggs for sale in the morning is always a good thing in my book. Great site to explore the likes of Orford and Aldeburgh. We will certainly be staying again in the future. Thanks.

We first found this site when camping with the ALC group. We returned with a group of friends who enjoyed the site even though some were not initially keen to camp. For us this is a call in stop from home and a place for family cycling trips too. We have brought young friends here to try out camping and with the new inside shelter available for evening comfort it is easy to find shelter on wet evenings. We like to visit Snape maltings while staying here with delicious afternoon tea available, a pub and various craft/art shops too. Minsmere bird reserve also close by. Saxmundham is within distance for local shops, Tesco etc.
Fresh eggs and some fruit and vegetables can be bought on site too! A lovely place for quiet times but also welcoming for groups and family get togethers.
