Why stay here ...

Best Newcomer CL Award - 2019

Roger and Pauline welcome you to their fantastic new purpose built CL caravan site on their small Suffolk farm, offering a unique caravan/motorhome experience. Within 3/4 acre of level grassland, enclosed by fencing, sit the superb pitches with attractive open field views, beautiful sunsets, unpolluted night sky and a maximum of five pitches being used at any one time. This really is the place for a peaceful tranquil get away.

All five hardstandings are identical and large enough for your caravan/motorhome, awning and car! Two large all grass pitch options are available by arrangement. All of the pitches are fully serviced.

The onsite facilities are outstanding, including a beautiful unique custom built 5 star amenity building, with under floor heating harnessing the very latest energy saving technology. There is an indvidual WC and a washing up room with two sinks and drainers. We have two large personal bathrooms each fitted with luxury shower, toilet, hand-basin, shaving point, hand and hair dryers. One bathroom is fully fitted for people with disabilities and is wheelchair accessible.

An information room for guests to find what's on offer locally includes a bookcase with books that guests can borrow for the duration of their stay. There are some perfect places to read one of these books, maybe take a stroll around our hedge-lined field, stopping half way at a bench conveniently placed. Sit in a little corner there to relax for a while, enjoying the tranquillity and birdsong. Perhaps take a book over to the natural pond and find a bench there, or maybe the picnic benches ... The building has an office, which doubles up as a small shop facility supplying basic essentials including fresh milk, bread and free range eggs from a local smallholding (run by our daughter Shelly). Additionally the small holding supplies very tasty free range rare breed sausages, bacon, burgers, pork as well as lamb and more, perfect for morning fry ups and evening BBQ's.

The site is dog friendly, with a lovely dog walk around our 15 acre meadow and the dogs even have their own dog wash area.

Barn Owl Meadow gets its name from the barn owls that are often seen flying over the meadow and shares its home with a wide range of Suffolk wildlife such as sky larks, partridge's, pheasants, deer, lots of hares, and an amazing woodpigeon with no tail, and winter time sheep in the field!

Barn Owl Meadow is on the Suffolk/Norfolk border with Diss (8 miles), Stowmarket 8 miles and the beautiful historic town of Bury St Edmunds, with its Cathedral, Abbey Gardens and market days on Wednesdays and Saturdays, being well worth a visit 13 miles away. Within a 3 mile radius are four villages providing a useful mixture of pubs, cafes, post offices and village shops.

If you want a relaxing break, in lovely countryside surrounded by nature with mod cons at your door step then this is the place for you. For more information please visit our Website.

Great Site

Barn Owl Meadow
What a lovely site and fantastic facilities that are kept spotlessly clean, You will find peace and tranquillity on this site and lovely views. We had a visiting green woodpecker that was on the grass outside our window every day. The pitches are fully serviced, and there is plenty of room for your vehicle and a large awning. There are also picnic benches for each caravan pitch also there are lovely quite walks from the site, Or a dog walk area if you have one. We highly recommend a visit you won't be disappointed .

Fantastic CL

Barn Owl Meadow
What a wonderful CL, we have been touring for about 40 years and have never come across such plush facilities on a CO never mind large sites! Big extremely flat pitches, no spirit level needed! Fully serviced and peaceful, what more can you ask for! Pauline the owner is very friendly and the site is immaculate, it really is a credit to her and Roger. Hopefully will return of we can get a pitch!!

An excellent site

Barn Owl Meadow
This is a really nice site. The pitches are spacious and fully serviced with water, electricity and grey water disposal per pitch. There is also a picnic area per pitch with table and benches. The facilities are absolutely first class putting many "5 Star" sites to shame. The owners are friendly and helpful and the area surrounding the site is quiet and rural. We like to cycle on quiet rural roads and there's plenty of opportunity to do that here. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely fantastic

Barn Owl Meadow
We spent two nights here 2nd/3rd of June. We was not disappointed, one of the best if not the best we have stayed on. It certainly is what a CL site should be. Cleanliness was 10/10 , the welcome was the same. Spacious pitch. Lovely one way dog walk , so if your dogs are nervous or excitable you don’t have to worry about passing other dogs All dogs was kept on leads. Showers was Fantastic. You have your own picnic table , with parasol for shade Although we never used it they have a little shop.We will definitely be back. Thank you Brian and Sue
