Church View Campsite  


Situated in West Suffolk in between Bury St Edmunds and Newmarket and just 2 miles off the main A14.  Church View offers 4 acres of lawn set in the grounds of Suffolk Academy, a sports and entertainment centre and just a 10 minute walk from a village and pub.  It will appeal not only to those looking for a place to relax and appreciate the views but also to the more energetic who will enjoy walking or cycling along surrounding quiet lanes.


Showers and toilets are available 24 hrs a day. The local village of Barrow is 0.6 miles away and has two pubs, The 3 Horseshoes which serves local ales and pub grub and the prestigious Weeping Willow who do a high end quality meal and service. There are also two general stores, post office, a fish and chip shop and play area with skate ramps for the children.


The site is only 50m from the 1000 year old Barrow Church, hence our name, 8 miles from historic Bury St Edmunds and 7 miles from the countries racehorse capital Newmarket.

You will be made very welcome by your hosts Glen and Julie who enjoy the sociable aspect of running a campsite. In the majority of cases the answer is always ‘Yes’.

We look forward to meeting you soon! ……..
