Fantastic - can’t recommend enough!

What a beautiful site that would put many commercial sites to shame. Pitches are spacious, fully serviced and well maintained. Each pitch has a countryside outlook and its own picnic bench opposite the pitch. Great location for exploring the local area whilst maintaining peace and tranquility of being on a farm. Would definitely recommend and we will definitely be visiting again!

Great facility CL

We stayed at Barn Owl Meadow CL for 4 nights in October 2020. The site is only 2 years old but is really a mini club site and it has all the facilities required for a relaxing stay. As other have said, each pitch has its own EHU, water & grey water disposal point. We were there during the Covid period and the shower/toilet block was available to us but we chose to use our own onboard facilities. All the hardstandings were the same size with plenty of space to be able to “distance” from your neighbours. There were also picnic benches on the grassed areas in front of the site roadway. The dog walk around the perimeter of the paddock was welcome. The area is quiet with a few footpaths & byways to explore. The village of Walsham le Willows is 2 miles west & Rickinghall & Botesdale are a similar distance north. One small suggestion might be to plant some type of hedging between the pitches to give a bit more privacy. The site did seem to be a bit “open”. Not a criticism – just a comment.

Outstanding CL

This is one of the best CLs we have ever stayed on. Clearly a lot of thought and expense has gone into the design and makeup of the site which is just perfect. Matched with the beautiful countryside and peace and quiet and a very helpful and lovely owner this CL is excellent

What a wonderful site - March 2020

Stayed at Barn Owl Meadow for 3 nights this week (9/3/2020) and had a great time. Wonderful site, amazing facilities, excellent customer service and great value at only £20 per night. We used it as a base for exploring the area by bike and on foot and we weren't disappointed. One minor issue that you need to take into account is the positioning of the grey waste drain on each pitch. You will need at least 5 meters of drain piping to reach it. Sadly my drain pipe didn't reach the drain - but luckily I did bring my Waste Master so all was not lost... The washrooms were amazing with great showers and spotlessly clean. There was even piped music!! Will certainly be recommending it to my caravanning friends and hope to return when the weather is a bit warmer..

Barn Owl Meadow Feb 2020

We had looked to stay at Barn Owl meadow, in January but all pitches were booked. so we managed to get a pitch mid Feb and I can see why Barn Owl Meadow is so busy. Lovely clean, peaceful site. The site has a safety barrier with an access code, which gives a feeling of security. The added bonus to us was that each pitch was fully serviced with EHU, drinking water and grey water drainage. With plenty of space on the hard standing for Car, Caravan and Awning and between pitches. We visited the weekend of Storm Denis, the pitches are well drained and you get some shelter from the wind from the hedge behind. The small shop on site stocks items you may have forgotten, ie Shampoo, Toothpaste, Shower Gel, also some Jams, Sauces Salt, Pepper and a freezer full of Pork and Lamb. there are leaflets of things to do in the area. Plus some nice to have's for sale. We use the facilities that come with the van, but the showers looked exceptional and Warm. There is also a Washing up area for those of you who prefer to wash up away from the van. Waste disposal was nice and easy to use, also a dog wash for muddy paws. The dog walk is around the edge of the field in front of the pitches. There are also picnic benches, which would get a lot of use in the summer. The site is well looked after and lovely short grass, even the dog walk was nice and tidy. The TV reception was good, as was the 4G phone signal. The owners of the site are friendly and helpful, We will be visiting again some time in the future.

Full Club Site facilities in a CL Setting! Fantastic.

Stayed 2 nights at Barn Owl Meadow last week whilst on a short break in Suffolk. Remembered seeing the rave reviews in a Club Magazine when it opened, and all the member reviews since, pretty much say it all. We have been CAMC members for 5 years, since purchasing out Motorhome, "Flo", and have stayed on lots of different Club Sites, Affiliated Sites and CLs. Barn Owl Meadow is by some distance, the best CL we have stayed on. Well done Roger and Pauline for all the thought that has gone into designing such a top class site, which has everything you could wish for......peace and quiet, security, location and facilities. Nice welcome on arrival as well, so all that's left is for us to enjoy the lamb shanks, chops and rack of lamb that we took home from Shelley's freezer! We'll be back in better weather, although we did manage to get out walking every day this time and enjoyed Eye and Rickinghall in particular. Chris & Carolyn

Fantastic cl

Only half an hour from home, could be anywhere. Immaculate, peaceful, brilliant facilities, lovely communication from owner. Good dog walk on site. We’ve recently changed from caravan to motorhome and this site was so perfect for us to get used to using the motorhome as access was very good and the layout made it easy. Going to use this site frequently I think for last minute get aways.

4 nights of utter peace.

We came to stay at Barn Owl meadow, exhausted and in need of a good rest, and this was certainly the place to get it. Lovely and clean, peaceful tranquil site, the toilets and shower are modern and an excellent facility. On arrival we were greeted by the owner and given a tour of the facilities, the site has a safety barrier with an access code, which gives a wonderful feeling of security. The added bonus to us was that each pitch was fully serviced with drinking water and grey water drainage, with plenty of space on the hard standing and between pitches. Not far away is Bressingham railway museum and gardens that's really worth a visit. We will certainly be back next year, hopefully for longer than 4 nights. Tina & Don Bartram
