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!
Disappearing amongst 4 acres of meadow grass are five tent pitches, two pre-pitched bell tents, a canvas StarDome and a Living van & Shepherd’s hut. All have their own seating areas and fire pits with grills for cooking. For a true Slow camping adventure we have set the pre-pitched bells up with their own canvas tarp bushcamp shelter, kindling rocket stoves, kelly kettles and cast iron pans.
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 timber framed 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 logbook to make a note of your discoveries.
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 logs for climbing on and a mud kitchen. You will also find the stick den here and materials to make it your own.
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. You can explore our 80 acre farm on a walk just for our campers. It takes you past our clover fields and herbal leys and our alpacas and sheep. We have a bike shelter to store your bikes and even some to borrow for free if you fancy exploring further afield!
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 Slow camping adventure and don’t mind sharing your campsite with barn owls, deer, hare and butterflies, come join us and rediscover the great outdoors!
