Really lovely site, well managed and with the bonus of an enactment group camping out. Enthralling! Easy to find, east of Woodbridge with good car parking and a nice cafeteria.

No parking price and yes you can just use the nice tea rooms you pay to see exhibition, the mounds and Mrs Pretty's house but well worth it.
