Ling’s Meadow is a small, friendly eco campsite based on a family farm in rural Suffolk. The farm is home to Kath and Neel and their three young children.
Two furnished bell tents, a Norfolk shepherd's hut, a family sized living van and six camping pitches are set within a peaceful four acre natural meadow that is also visited by a barn owl, hares, deer and buzzards on a regular basis. The small site is perfect for campers who enjoy the peace and quiet of the open countryside and a spot of campfire stargazing. It is also ideal for groups of family or friends wanting to find space for a relaxing break away from it all.
The light and airy 5m canvas bell tents, spacious living van and wooden shepherd's hut are furnished with double beds that come with soft duvets and pillows and extra cosy crochet blankets. The bell tents also have two single futon beds with duvets and pillows. The living van has a second double bed for two more adults or up to three small children. Linen and towels are provided in the shepherd's hut and for seven night stays in the bell tents and living van. Sets can also be hired on site. For extra comfort we add restored furniture for storage, lanterns and extra touches such as bunting, solar chandeliers and flowers from the farm garden. The end result is a relaxed and home-crafted feel. The tents and huts are equipped with everything that you will need for your stay - from cooking equipment, cool boxes and a fire pit with grill to a selection of good books!
Each tent pitch is set within its own cut grass circle and has enough space for a large family tent. The meadow is car free and a large area is left untouched to protect the local wildlife. A large communal fire pit is available to use but campers can also borrow individual fire pits with grills.
The campsite is very much ‘off grid’ and has been lovingly developed with sustainability in mind. Two luxury composting toilets and a separate solar and wood heated shower are provided in purpose built wooden pods. Water is recycled using a natural marginal plant system so that it can be reused to water the farm garden and waste recycling facilities are available in the camp kitchen.
Being enthusiastic outdoor types we have also thought long and hard about facilities for cyclists and walkers travelling under their own steam.
Campers have access to a secure cycle shed with tool kit and local route information, bike and kit washing facilities (for a small fee) and cycles to borrow. To make it easier to travel light we also provide shared cooking and dining equipment in the communal camp kitchen. There is also the option of a pre-pitched tent (with optional futon and bedding) available to exhausted cyclists and walkers ready to collapse by the campfire! To make life even easier we have a range of provisions parcels that can be delivered to your tent door!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
