Why stay here ...

Philip and Deenie look forward to welcoming you to Mill Farm.

Mill Farm is a 40-acre working farm in the Hengrave Conservation Area. It is a 5-minute drive from the Westley Interchange on the A14 to the west of Bury St Edmunds. Mill Road is the first right turn at the entrance to the village of Hengrave. Look out for the yellow plough on the right at the bottom of Mill Road, and be sure to turn right into the farmyard before the plough.

The meadows, grazed by horses, are in an agri-environment scheme and are teeming with wildlife. The CL site is in a small stream-side meadow overlooking the valley of the River Lark, and the river is the eastern boundary of the farm. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a lead, and please keep clear of horses and their riders. Coarse fishing on the farm can be arranged in season, and there is a trout fishery nearby at West Stow. Pay-as-you-go golf is available in the next village of Fornham.

The 18th century Listed farmhouse was once attached to a water-mill, demolished in the 1930’s. The mill-pond beside the road is part of the owners’ garden. Mill Road is a quiet cul-de-sac leading down to the river, and from there a river-side public footpath runs all the way upstream to Bury St Edmunds.

West Stow Country Park, Fuller’s Mill Gardens, and The Lackford Lakes Wildlife Reserve are all within 3 miles, and from there the Kings Forest, the largest man-made forest in England, stretches northwards up to the Norfolk border and includes part of the Icknield Way. National Trust houses at Ickworth, Long Melford Hall and Lavenham Guildhall are a short drive south.

The town of Bury St Edmunds is 10 minutes away, with its outstanding market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are many visitor attractions – the Abbey Gardens, Cathedral, Moyses Hall museum, a big shopping centre and a wide choice of restaurants. Hourly bus services into the town centre stop at the thatched circular shelter in Hengrave village street, a short walk from Mill Farm.

Dog walk by river adjacent.

Pay and play golf is available in the next village and there are 3 golf courses within a 5 mile radius.

A great find for Hengrave Hall

We stayed at Mill Farm for three nights in August 2019 for a wedding (not mine) at Hengrave Hall, which is only a few minutes drive away and really glad we stayed at the farm. If you travel using the A14, it is really easy to get too and the site is actually sign posted from the A1101. Access to the site is easy and identifiable by looking out for the yellow plough. The owners allocate the pitches and these are displayed on a chalk board which is visible upon entry. The pitches have plenty of space and each of an EHU hookup. We where on pitch two and was slightly slopping but nothing a ramp couldn't solve. Although it is a working farm, it is very peaceful and the pitches have a view of the horses. The toilet and shower facilities are clean and modern and there are plenty of leaflets for local places to visit as well as a folder containing information and history of the farm. After settling in, we where met bye Deenie who was nice and friendly and collected our payment, £45 for three nights is really good :-). We are a couple of meals at The Three Kings which was no more than 5 minutes drive away in Fornham All Saints and is also dog friendly and served fantastic food. We hope to visit the again so we can see more of the picturesque area and hopefully have a walk along the river.
