Food & Drink
The Mill Inn (01359 221018) is just a 3 mile walk from the site in nearby Market Weston – perfect for a sample of the local ales and pub grub. For ale aficionados, the Star Wing Brewery (01379 890586) is also nearby, as is St George’s Whisky Distillery (01953 717939) which offers tours as well as a chance to buy. Wyken Vineyards (01359 250262), is just a short cycle ride away – it's also is also home to gorgeous, oak-beamed Leaping Hare (01359 250287) restaurant and a country store. For the finest local produce, Wyken also holds a farmer’s market every Saturday. Further afield, The Bell Inn (01379 898445) at Rickinghall and No 4 Hatter Street (01284 754477), are decent shouts for food. Kath can also provide food hampers, brimming with local produce – enquire before booking.
Children chase one another through the long, wild grass like a savannah scene in the latest David Attenborough documentary. Luxuries and extra comforts have also been craftily woven into this natural site, though, making it suitable even for less primitive types.

Ling's Meadow is located at Stanton Road Farm, North Common, Hepworth, Diss, Norfolk IP22 2PR
By car: For local traffic, Ling's Meadow is just off the B111 between Barningham and Stanton. From further afield you can reach the B111 via the A14 and then the A143. The A14 links up with the A11 and M11 from the west, the A1 from the north and the A12 from the south east.The site is only two hours from north London (one and a half on a clear run). Take the M11 and then A11 to the A14 and follow for Bury St Edmunds. Come off at Bury St Edmunds Central and follow the A143 towards Felixstowe. From south or east London it is probably quicker to take the A12 to Ipswich and then join the A14 to Bury St Edmunds. In both cases follow the A143 from the Bury St Edmunds Central exit to the B111 turn off at Stanton.
Nearest railway stations are Thetford, Diss and Stowmarket. Bury St Edmunds is only slightly further away. All have taxi ranks good bus links. Stowmarket and Diss stations have regular, direct services to and from London Liverpool Street. Thetford has regular services to and from London Kings Cross and to the north via Peterborough. There are reasonably regular bus services from Diss and Bury St Edmunds to Hepworth but times can change so it always worth checking. Both journeys take about half an hour and have buses that arrive in Hepworth between 2 and 3pm.
