Haw Wood Farm Caravan Park

4.8 (348 reviews)

Conveniently close to the A12 and just 4 miles from the beautiful Suffolk Coast, Haw Wood Farm is an award-winning, family-run holiday park set in the market town of Saxmundham. Just a stone's throw from woodlands, heaths, quaint villages, bike routes and walking paths, the site is surrounded by stunning open countryside. Everything you could want for a well earned break is right on your doorstep.

Spanning 14 acres, this AA 5 Gold Pennant site is based close to the gorgeous Suffolk Coast and has garnered a string of prestigious awards over the years. These include David Bellamy Gold Awards for conservation and a place in Practical Caravaners' 'Top 100' campsites in the country—testaments to its excellence and popularity among guests.

The site offers a great range of pitches, catering to motorhomes, campervans, caravans, and tents. From fully serviced hardstanding pitches to grass serviced pitches and standard pitches, Haw Wood Farm Caravan Park provides a variety of options to suit every camper's preference. The commitment to harmonising with nature is evident in the adjacent Wild Flower and Young Woodland Walk, inviting visitors to indulge in peaceful strolls amidst the beauty of native flora and fauna.

One of the standout features of Haw Wood Farm is its meticulously maintained amenities. A 2022 refurbishment project resulted in Platinum Award-winning bathrooms that boast underfloor heating for comfort during cooler evenings and winter months. The facilities include shower and toilet rooms with hand dryers, hair dryers, and full-length mirrors. Families can make use of the self-contained family bathrooms, complete with shower, toilet, sink, and baby change units, while an accessible shower room caters to wheelchair users.

The wash up and laundry facility in the main building offers convenience with large sinks for washing up, a freezer for ice, and washing machines and tumble dryers, enabling campers to pack lighter and stay longer. The on-site shop is well-stocked and reasonably priced, providing everything from daily essentials to camping equipment and local products.

For those who prefer to let someone else do the cooking, the on-site cafe welcomes guests with a variety of options. The menu, especially extended during the summer, offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free alternatives, ensuring a diverse and inclusive dining experience.

Families with well-behaved dogs are welcomed at Haw Wood Farm. While on a lead around the park, dogs can enjoy freedom in a large grazing meadow, which provides a space for them to stretch their legs and play freely. The highlight for many children is the playground, where diverse equipment and a fun atmosphere create lasting memories and foster new friendships.

Haw Wood Farm's commitment to environmental sustainability is evident in its use of a biomass boiler to heat all hot water on-site. The boiler is fuelled by wood chips collected from the Hinton Estate, showcasing the site's dedication to eco-friendly practices.

Beyond the Park, Haw Wood Farm offers proximity to memorable family days out. The stunning Dunwich Beach, just 4 miles away, provides a picturesque coastal escape accessible by a short drive. Minsmere, recognized as one of the best birdwatching sites in Britain, sits a mere 5 miles from Haw Wood Farm, offering nature trails and birdwatching hides for enthusiasts and families alike.

Lovely big plots, and rural

Whitcombe, Sarah - 08/07/2024

We will definitely go back to this lovely campsite. a great base for exploring the lovely Suffolk coastline. Our pitch was big. We felt surrounded by nature. Fantastic dog walking area. Delicious hamper of local food that we treated ourselves to. The showers and toilets were lovely and clean and spacious. Very friendly staff. My only gripe, the push button showers only last about 15 seconds, and it is very difficult to shower properly, and/or wash ones hair, particularly if it is long. I am so glad that we discovered the place.

Great stay, weather not good

Sandilands, David - 07/07/2024

Arrived on a very bleak day and stopped for a coffee until there was a gap in the weather to put up the tent. Due to the wet, blustery weather we were advised to pitch up where we could be protected from the extreme weather, we were the only tent for a couple of days. This was good advice as we had a mix of rain, wind and sun for the 5 days but this did not deter us from enjoying ourselves. Staff were excellent and attentive to our needs. Thank you.

Fabulous site

Codling, Maria - 07/07/2024

Fabulous site, very clean & well maintained with a lovely cafe & shop + a good play park for children. The pitches are a good size - the grass pitches are huge! The dog walking field is a big plus, fully enclosed with neatly cut pathways through the free growing vegetation. The facilities are spotless. We’ll be back yet again !

Excellent site

Vallis, Clive - 05/07/2024

We have stayed at Haw Wood a number of times now. We always receive a warm welcome from the owners Georgina and Dan. The site is always very well maintained and nothing is too much trouble. The pitches are well spaced out with plenty of open space. I can't think of anywhere better to celebrate my birthday. Every time we stay the time goes too quickly and when we leave we can't wait to return. We feel that it is certainly value for money and would very highly recommend Haw Wood. The location is great for going to Southwold and other beaches and within easy reach of many eating establishments.

Lovely, well kept site.

Cave, Robert - 04/07/2024

A warm welcome from Georgina and a far more relaxed vibe than the sites operated by the big 2. Lovely area with lots of places to visit, particularly Southwold and Aldeburgh. My only gripe is the push button showers which only stayed on for a very short time, they should operate for at least 30 secs.

Another wonderful stay at Haw Wood Farm. The overall quietness of this beautiful setting enhanced by the calling of a Turtle Dove on the three days we were there. Magical!
