- Eco camping and glamping in a 4 acre natural meadow
- Rural family farm location on the Suffolk/Norfolk border
- Small, quiet site with a friendly communal feel, luxury eco facilities
Ling's Meadow is all about a slower pace of life - whether it be lying among the tall meadow grasses listening to bird song, or stargazing around an open fire. It is also a celebration of the great outdoors, where you can lose yourself in bug hunting, den building, kite flying, alpaca trekking and campfire cooking.
We are only able to accommodate up to twenty five guests at a time so the site is naturally quite quiet and has a relaxed, friendly and communal feel. As we are small the meadow is also perfect for groups of family or friends who would like to book the whole site for a get together.
Two furnished bell tents, a cosy shepherd's hut, a gypsy caravan, 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. They each have their own outdoor seating area and fire pit with tripod and hanging grill.
The light and airy 5m canvas bell tents are furnished with a double bed and two single futon beds that come with soft duvets and pillows and homemade crochet blankets. The cosy shepherd's hut and gypsy caravan have double pull out beds that acts as a sofa seat during the day. The living van has two double bunk style beds. Linen and towels are provided for seven night stays. Sets can be hired on site. For extra comfort we add cotton bunting, solar chandeliers, restored furniture and extra touches such as flowers from the farm garden. The end result is a relaxed and home-crafted feel. The tents, living van, hut and caravan 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 of the meadow tent pitches 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. Fire pits with grills available to borrow for free.
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 marginal plants as natural filters and waste recycling facilities are available in the camp kitchen.
Campers have access to a secure cycle shed with tool kit and local route information, bike and kit (for a small fee) washing facilities 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 futon mattress and bedding available for exhausted cyclists and walkers ready to collapse by the campfire!
