Shotley Caravan Park is being auctioned off for

One of Suffolk’s best kept secrets among caravanners is about to go under the hammer after being placed up for sale by its current owners.

Located in Ipswich, 8.5-acre Shotley Caravan Park is up for sale with an asking price of between £200,000 and £250,000.

The park, described as a “private affair” offers “unrivalled and uninterrupted” views of the Orwell/Stour river and has been described by its current owners as a retreat for only tourists “in the know”.

Opened in the 1970s, the park is pretty much Shotley’s best-kept-secret, offering ten seasonal pitches with hardstands, power and water and 15 touring pitches that have electric couple-up facilities.

Incorporated in the sale, which takes place on 22 July, is a static caravan on the site that includes two bedrooms and central heating.

Auctioneer Tim Golding, of Goldings Auctions believes that there are other possibilities that this site could be used for.
