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.

Overall enjoyed our stay would reccomend, but bear in mind the above 05/28/2019

    Campsite was located in a lovely area with nice surroundings. It was spacious and not over crowded. Value for money was good.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets we're minimal and often occupied, there was rarely toilet paper stocked (make sure to bring your own). One of the three / four showers was nice, however most seems to be messy and dirty and had automatic lights that turned off after 10-15 seconds.
    The loud 'live music' (karaoke) that was on from 5.30-10.45pm wasn't to our liking, but some people seemed to enjoy it.

    Lovely location.

    Disliked: 

    Small improvements needed in the toilet/shower block - lights kept going out due to lights being in a short timer and a hook on the door and shower curtain would have made my shower a lot more pleasant as I could have avoided my clothes getting wet!
    The owners put on music one evening which we quite liked, however we weren’t told that it was happening (either when we booked or when we arrived). We didn’t have a problem with it but feel that we should have been made aware of it.

Camping as it should be 05/08/2019

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Graham W. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Manageable number of campers in a big field. Friendly owners willing to do anything to help. Beautiful setting. Other people just like us (families with young kids). Walk-in hot water showers in bathrooms also containing toilet and wash basin so you don't have to try to fit yourself into a cubicle just a few inches wider than yourself (as is often the case) and drop your dry undies on a wet floor and other such camping challenges. Drawback is that there is at the moment only one such room for 'his' and one for 'hers', so the queue can back up a bit. There are more currently under construction, so that problem should be eased. Small inconvenience for otherwise great value for money.

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.
