On the site you can use the 'safari styled' kitchen, which is great for cooking under cover; there are views out across the meadow, so you can still keep an eye on what's happening. We have fruit and vegetable troughs dotted around the barn so that you can pick or dig your own if you want to - there is no charge for this and we very much hope you'll enjoy the delights of home grown produce. You also have free use of the communal pizza oven, using herbs you may find in the vegetable troughs!

In the barn there's an electric kettle and toaster as well as armchairs and sofas, table football, full-sized table tennis, books, maps, fridge-freezers, charging points for phones or laptops as well as WiFi.  We aim to make your glamping experience the best and we hope you'll find everything you need here!

Adjacent to the barn houses is the 'Owl Cowshed', here you will find flushing toilets, showers, basins, mirrors (as well as your own hot water bottle for the cooler ends of the season) and washing up facilities with plenty of hot water from the solar panels on the stable roof (supported by an environmentally friendly wood-pellet boiler and two huge hot water cylinders). And tucked away outside beneath the rowan tree you’ll find the double woodland shower with proper hot water in a wooded area well screened by willow fencing.

Nearby

The site is right on National Cycling Route 1, so great to explore the flat and intensely quiet roads nearby (there is a selection of bikes to borrow). You could also cycle to the Big Dog ferry nearby, a service which takes you to the marvellous and unique Locks Inn pub just outside Geldeston. If on the other hand you just want to stay put and drink in the peace of the camp, you could join one of the birdwatching courses or wildlife night walks they run from time to time. The coast is not far away at Southwold, a seaside resort that was gentrified before the term was even invented. As a consequence there are great places to eat and drink, and the bonus of a decent beach and excellent pier with homespun attractions. The handsome small town of Beccles is just a few miles north, the southernmost outpost of the Broads and a great place to hire a boat or canoe to explore the waterways.

Food & Drink

The Queen's Head at Blyford and Queen's Head at Bramfield are both worth a visit and St Peter's Brewery, a 15th century moated former-abbey, just 5 miles away in "The Saints" is a must. definitely not to be missed. Continuing the theme, if you are a brewery fan, check out Adnams at Southwold and try the brewery tour and check-out the fabulous kitchen store and cafe there. The market town of Halesworth has a good range of independent food shops as well as a larger Co-op, so you don't need to worry about bringing masses of food with you. Westhall village is home to The Racehorse Inn, just over a mile away and a lovely quiet walk or bike ride.

Getting There

Despite being so rural, the site is easy to reach, close to the A12 and just a short drive from Bungay and Beccles. From Bungay, turn left at Ilketshall St Lawrence primary school (Hog Lane) and then first right (Butts Road) – the site is about half a mile down on the left. If travelling from Halesworth, turn right at the Spexhall crossroads (the first right turn on this road) along Nollers Lane, then take the first left (Butts Road) and follow the road for 1.3 miles, ignoring the right hand turn to Westhall village. The site is on the right.

Hourly trains run to Brampton and Halesworth on the London to Lowestoft line via Ipswich, and Nick and Kim are happy to collect from either station – indeed the site offers an "own steam" discount for those arriving by train, bike or foot.
