Simply a great campsite. We stayed with a small tent, one adult and two children aged 4 and 8. They enjoyed roaming around the car free field in safety. We really appreciated the games stuff available to use and particularly the cooking tent which we used when preparing a meal. Friendly owners and good Eco facilities made for a relaxed one night stay in our own tent - site is not just for glampers.

This site is wonderful, especially if you have kids. We booked a last minute week here in August. The site is small with fewer than 10 pitches. It is an 'eco' campsite, but without the hard sell. The compost toilets are great, and very well maintained. In fact, better facilities and cleanliness than other UK campsites we've visited (fresh flowers, eco hand soap, toilet paper provided). We never queued for the toilets while we were there.

The owners really encourage you to just come along and as such if you need them to provide a tent it really isn't much more on the pitch price and I think they even discount if you arrive by public transport. Cars are not allowed on the meadow itself, but trolley/wheelbarrows are available to help move your stuff a short distance from car to pitch. Each pitch is just mowed into the meadow and there are lovely meandering paths to get around the small site.

What is wonderful about this site is there is a communal tented area with picnic tables and everything you could need to cook food, BBQ, wood burning pizza oven, or even charge your phone. There is also a communal fire pit to have a bonfire, roast marshmallows with the kids. The communal tent for cooking was great on a rainy day, as you didn't have to cook in a confined tent on a small stove and you could meet your neighbours.

The site itself is a great base. We'll have to return to see more of the area. Bressingham Steam and Gardens, Southwold/Great Yarmouth for the beach an hour away, Pakenham Water Mill, Bury St. Edmunds, vineyard up the road, and Thetford forest. There is a great farm shop just up the road, and plenty of pubs, even an American diner less than 5 mins. Drive.

However, what is truly special about this site is that you get to know the other people on the site because of the way it is set-up. Kids meet, all roast marshmallows in the evening and then run round the meadow at night with torches/glow sticks and just enjoy being kids and meeting new friends. The owners are great, always on hand to answer questions and provide lovely touches all round the site. Charcoal, wood, marshmallows, den building, pizza ovens, solar powered freezer for cool blocks, and wood burning/solar powered boiler for a shower (though please don't dally or your camp mates might not like you in the morning). Idyllic really.

Campsites are often created to support a flagging rural income and when that is the primary motivation, the results are, sadly, all too obvious.

At Ling's Meadow, the opposite is true. It is very evidently a creation borne out of a love of camping and a desire to get things just right. From the composting loos to the rocket stove/solar water heating, it's also a salutary example, in microcosm, of what we need to be doing to preserve our existence on this planet.

Wild camping has a magic all of its own. Ling's Meadow Combines that magic with just the right mix of comforts.

Local amenities (shop/pub) are within a reasonable cycling distance and although quite close to a main road, traffic noise is not obtrusive.

There is only one word to describe this site. FANTASTIC!

The owners bend over backwards to help and made our stay very enjoyable.

The campsite itself is idyllic, peaceful and well thought out. Perfect for those who wish to have an 'off-grid' camping experience.

We shall certainly be visiting again in the future.

This campsite is just adorable! Big enough for the kids to roam free and small enough to be able to cast a watchful eye over them whilst they explore (tip: take butterfly nets!). We stayed for just a night in one of their bell tents, fab, everything supplied for us, even matches and firelighters. The communal kitchen/eating area was a great idea, with little fairy lights that glowed at dusk. I was a little dubious about the compost toilets but needn't have been as the facilities here were exceptionally clean. (Toilet rolls/hand-soap and towel all supplied, one less thing to pack!). All in all a superb little campsite in a peaceful location, great for a relaxing getaway. We will return! My only gripe was that the complimentary bottle of (delicious) Damson Gin wasn't quite big enough.

We stayed for two nights, could not have been more helpful when booking even though we were doing so at late notice. We had our own large tent and pitched in one of the larger crop circles with more than enough space.

The kitchen equipment available to use (just bring your own gas)was essential for us as we don't have a big car. I've never seen this at a site before, it's a great idea. The picnic type tables to eat at made it so easy for us to eat as a family and enjoy the view of the surrounding fields. The campfire and marshmallows was just perfect on our last night.

The toilets here are amazing, super clean and fresh. Also the shower was so clean and spacious but cold but not a problem.

We made easy visits by car to Diss and had a day out at Framlingham castle about an hour away. On one evening we ate at an American style cafe which was quite fun.

We'll make sure we return
