Ling’s Meadow is a small, friendly and relaxed eco campsite on the Norfolk and Suffolk border. Our passion is the outdoors and living sustainably within it, and we are particularly keen to encourage kids to get out and explore. We have three of our own and they provide us with lots of new ideas!
We have six tent pitches cut into 4 acres of meadow grass, two furnished bell tents, a family sized living van and a cosy Shepherd’s hut and Gypsy Caravan to choose from. We are always experimenting with new alternative technology and have two spacious composting loos and a solar and wood heated shower on site. We are off grid and use solar power to provide lighting and power for a small freezer for freezer blocks. The campsite is a car free zone.
The canvas camp kitchen is the central hub of the site and here you will find ideas for days out, local maps, walking and cycling routes, wildlife spotter guides and a bug hunting kit. Campers are helping us to monitor the species on our meadow so there is also a log book to make a note of your discoveries.
Just next door to the campsite are green lanes with walks to local shops, child-friendly pubs and a park with tree trunks to climb on. We have a secure bike shed to store your bikes and even some to borrow for free!
One of the favourite games on the campsite is running along the mown paths in the meadow grass, but we also have an explorer area with tractor tyres, straw bales and logs for building. You will find the den here and materials to make it your own. Because we know that kids (and adults! ) need a space to call their own, each bell tent has a den kit so that kids can build their own hideaway using poles, guy ropes and a canvas tarp.
Toasting marshmallows around the communal campfire is a must when you are camping and we also have a cob pizza oven so that you can have a go at making and cooking your favourite pizzas. Our local farm shop is just down the road and has all the supplies that you need for your cooked breakfast or BBQ.
So if you are looking for adventure and don’t mind sharing your campsite with barn owls, deer, hare and butterflies, come join us and rediscover the great outdoors!
Pitches for Large Family Tents
All of the circular pitches have enough space for a large family tent and gazebo. We have a double pitch too if you need it!
We have a lantern lit communal campfire with log seating and plenty of wood available to buy on site (£5 a trug). We also offer fire pits to borrow for your pitch. The furnished bell tents, living van and shepherd’s hut also have their own fire pits.
We have a family sized shower in its own wood hut. It is heated using solar power and a wood fired rocket stove. Hot water is free but there is a limited supply each day.
