General

  • Peaceful rural site on a smallholding three miles from Halesworth
  • 25 minutes' drive from the seaside town of Southwold
  • Barbecue area, picnic tables and occasional live music on site

Pick a pitch at Paradise Barn Camping and Caravanning and you’ll most likely have some rather beastly neighbours… rabbits, deer and pheasants are among the wild visitors often spotted here, and you may well also hear a bit of chat from the resident barn owl.

They’re attracted to this 14-acre Suffolk smallholding by the quiet country setting, the well-kept gardens and lack of noisome passing traffic. Those aspects tend to be pretty appealing to humanfolk too, as are the spacious pitches and the dark skies, which make an excellent backdrop to a fine evening round the campfire.

Going with that peaceful territory is easy access to a network of quiet rural roads for leisurely walks or bike rides (you can make the 10-mile journey to Flixton or Bungay without clapping eyes on a main road) and a clutch of country pubs, including a couple in Halesworth, three miles away. Fishing folks may fancy trying their luck at the trout lake next door or taking a trip on the site’s sea fishing boat from Lowestoft, 20 miles away.

Evenings on site tend to be fairly chilled affairs, as guests gather round the barbecues and picnic tables for their alfresco feasts, although occasionally there’s live music and other entertainment to get the party going.

    Booked a stay but Paradise Barns were closed due to the pandemic, which is fare enough, but a bit sad to say the least they didn't email me tell me my stay was cancelled. So feel let down.

    Friendly welcome. Happy n positive.

    Good sized pitch n electric hook up. Extensions provided if wire wasnt long enough.

    Area had an outstanding beauty to it. Miles upon miles of walking possible, excellent place to take the pooch(es).

    Fire pits available at a very reasonable price of £5 rental for duration of stay. Logs available too.

    Toilets were set back so were not on view which made more real the camping experience. Showers were good, hot water every time.

    There was chemical waste, cleaning area too. For those in motorhome.

    The local pub is only a short walk down the road and does some excellent food n house ales/ciders.

    Would highly recommend the site.

    There is no WiFi but you're camping so get off ya phone!!!!

Local attractions

You don’t need to stray too far from Paradise Barn to find things to fill your days – as well as the trout lake next door there’s coarse fishing a mile away, and with a drive of 10 minutes or so you can be visiting the Halesworth Airfield Memorial Museum, playing a round at the local golf course or meeting the residents of Oasis Camel Park.

Those fond of a tipple or two may like to take a half-hour wander over to Valley Farm Vineyards, where you can take a tour and sample some of their latest vintages. Those who prefer a pint should make a beeline for the Adnams brewery in Southwold, where you’ll see the brewing process in action before honing your beer drinking skills with a tutored tasting.

Southwold’s also got a fab beach and an excellent pier with some classic seaside fun to be had at the Wacky Walk of Mirrors and the Under the Pier Show. For more watery days out, head to Beccles, half an hour away by car, to hire a boat for a day of pottering around the Norfolk Broads.
