Just seven miles from tranquil Aldeburgh and close to Framlingham with its wonderful castle, Carlton Meres Country Park is set in woodland around two large fishing lakes. Suffolk has a host of family friendly seaside resorts and pretty English towns, as well as a beautiful coastline and plenty of opportunities for fun days out.

Fish in the lakes, play tennis, enjoy a splash in the outdoor heated swimming pool and have dinner in the clubhouse - there's lots to do here on the park - and further afield. Both Ipswich and Lowestoft have a good mix of shops and restaurants  - and you could enjoy a champagne brunch aboard the Lady Florence River Cruise Restaurant at Orford.

There is a good selection of holiday homes and lodges at Carlton Meres. The Platinum 2 is a luxurious lodge with two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower. The spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area has a flat screen TV with Freeview and DVD and there's a good sized decking area with garden furniture.

You can go carp and coarse fishing at Waveney Valley Lakes in Norwich, and enjoy indoor kart racing at the Anglia race track in Ipswich.

Our Top Tip
"There are beaches galore - Southwold has golden sands and a lovely old lighthouse and Dunwich is a National Trust beach with some excellent walks and lots of wildlife to spot."

Accommodation type: Gold 2
Little more care with the toilet cleaning. Everything else was very good

Accommodation type: Gold 2
Caravan was lovely, we were lucky enough to be given a 3 bedroom one that had a balcony at the front, others don't have the front balcony so sitting in the sun would be limited. The front balcony also meant we could have the door open without worrying about the dogs escaping as the balcony was enclosed. Caravan very comfortable, but limited cooking utensils, would be a struggle if you were cooking for 6! Leaking tap and one light bulb not working, things like this should be checked in advance also standard of cleaning was ok but not brilliant.

I loved the caravan. Would have preferred not to be right on top of camping site behind potential to be noisy in summer. Would ask for another caravan with more privacy although company strict on noise

Lovely caravan. Comfortable and clean. We were close to the entertainment complex but not bothered by noise. Could have used a couple of extra items in the kitchen (veg peeler would have been handy) but generally well appointed.

Great caravan
Perfect many thanks
Great place, beautiful setting , friendly and helpful staff , will go again
I was disappointed that there was not more opportunity to eat out on sight. The shop was not up and running. The accomodation was excellent.
Restaurant was closed and bar opening hours limited apart from that every thing was ok. Caravan was excellent and one of the nicest we've stayed in. Thank goodness it had central and double glasing as if was freezing.
