Why stay here ...

Black Barn CL is a small family run site within the grounds of our home, on the edge of Framlingham in Suffolk (0.7miles).

Black Barn CL is special because it is situated within walking distance (pavement all the way) of a thriving market town, no need to worry about parking or driving home after an evening out. For a small market town, Framlingham has a surprising amount to offer. As well as the Castle on the hill made famous by Ed Sheeran, the town is full of independent shops, cafes, 4 fabulous pubs, antiques, art exhibitions, a Deli jam packed with delicious things to temp you and a choice of beautiful walks around the castle's mere. This spring has also seen the arrival of a new Italian restaurant which has been opened by the broadcaster and food writer Ruth Watson. Twice a week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays the town comes alive with its market, offering local food produce, as well as different stalls selling clothing, baskets and plants etc.

The area surrounding Framlingham is packed with interesting, historical and beautiful places to visit, such as RSPB Minsmere (16.3 miles), Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon burial site (10.3 miles), Rendlesham Forest Centre (10.6 miles), Woodbridge Tide Mill (13 miles) as well as the Suffolk coastal towns of Aldeburgh (15 miles) and Southwold (21 miles) which are a short drive away.

Black Barn is a new site offering 5 grass pitches on a 3/4 acre plot surrounded by mostly mature hedging and fencing, although the newly planted laurels are needing a little more time before they reach maturity! The pitching area is tucked away from our home at the back of our land and comprises of large close mown pitches surrounded by natural long meadow grass. Each pitch will happily take a large awning and has its own electrical hook up point. The communal service point, drinking water and rubbish bins are situated with easy access close by.

As well as accommodation we have created a social garden space for you to relax and enjoy, with picnic tables dotted around raised beds full of flowers and plants. The garden is also equipped with a pizza kitchen and throughout the summer we will be offering CL members delicious treats and wood fired pizza cooked by our in-house professional chef (when he is not at work).

Although the site is situated on the edge of a bustling town, the road which during the day can get quite busy, quietens by early evening and the biggest culprit for noise pollution becomes the bird song. This is an adult only site, although well behaved dogs on leads are welcome too. Dogs and their owners can enjoy a variety of different countryside walks straight from the site.

We are very excited about welcoming our first CL members to Black Barn CL and to show off the wonderful town of Framlingham and we will do our best to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.

Two night stay

Black Barn CL
Had two nights at this site, wish we could have stayed for longer. Lovely site and friendly hosts. Great walks from the site . Framingham is a nice place to visit. If we are ever in that part of the country again would love to stay again.

Wonderful gem

Black Barn CL
It’s hard to imagine how this CL could be any better. They have put a great deal of thought into how to make this a great site. It is an easy walk to Framlingham down pavements or via one of the many footpaths across the open countryside. The site itself is very well laid out with beautiful wild flower planting. The views from the picnic tables are stunning particularly at sunset. Add to this the delicious handmade pizzas cooked in the wood fired oven that are available at weekends and you have it all. The welcome is really friendly and we will be revisiting as soon as the warm weather returns

Welcoming host

Black Barn CL
We stayed here with our friends for two nights. Mollie was an excellent host and very welcoming. The market town of Framingham was within walking distance and well worth visit with its beautiful castle. The site itself was clean, peaceful and spacious and we loved the mowed half circle at the end where we could enjoy an evening drink watching the sun go down. Our dogs had a fab time and made friends with Mollies dog, who was a gentle giant! Unfortunately we were unable to sample the wood fired pizzas, but that has given us a reason to come back!

Perfect little site

Black Barn CL
We really enjoyed our 3 night stay here. It is obvious the owners take great care in maintaining the site to a high standard and what a treat to be able to have a beautifully cooked Greek meal delivered to your motorhome! Wonderful! Framlingham has a few interesting shops and is an easy walk from the site. The Crown was particularly good for a relaxing coffee and cake or a meal on the outdoor patio. A great little site. Highly recommended.
