    I even found an electric can opener! The welcome pack was lovely and we enjoyed sipping our bottle of wine they left us on the decking. The owners Phil and Debbie were very warm and friendly and so helpful. We will be back to stay at lodge 12 again!

  • "A lovely week, nice location and very comfy."

    Only slight challenge was not being able to get out the gates as apparently someone had changed code. Rectified really quickly but did make me feel a little uneasy had we have been coming in late at night.

    Pauline, sorry the gate was an issue, it has highlighted that we need to make it clear that a fob for entry or departure is attached to the house key. Kind regards Philip & Debbie. Property Owner

  • "We found the surrounding area and its people most welcoming, there are two pubs close by with excellent food and service, the Kirton fishing lake is a good place to relax and fish five minutes from the park."

    This was the first time we had experienced a gated holiday on a park which is neat tidy and well managed. The site owner and lodge owners are always available when assistance is needed. We hope to return in the future. P&R

  • "The chalet was absolutely beautiful, the furnishings, the cleanliness and comfort were spot on."

    The owners left a welcome pack that was much appreciated. Bucklesham Park is a new complex that was in a gated area that was very quiet enabling us to totally relax. We have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone wishing to visit Suffolk.

  • "Our accommodation was spotlessly clean and left a brilliant 1st impression."

    We also met our hosts, Debbie and Phil and they were very welcoming and approachable. They left us a welcome goodie pack/hamper and it was fabulous. Along with a comprehensive set of guides and things to do in the area too. The site itself is quiet, a gated community, with no real facilities on it. This was fine for us, as there were shops, restaurants and pubs all within 5 miles of the site. Lovely accommodation, lovely area to explore. Well worth a visit.
