Open Day 2018-10-12T14:46:37+00:00

On Saturday 15th September 2018 we celebrated the Suffolk countryside with a Farm Walk

and people had the opportunity to view our luxury lodges

available to rent or to buy.

See below what happened at our Open Day:

Address: Welhams Meadow, Church Road, Battisford, Needham Market, Suffolk IP14 2HE

Guided Farm Walk

Find out where your food comes from! See the crops we grow now and how the land was used 1000 years ago. The medieval wood and the conservation areas are highlights with a large reservoir and fishing lakes. These attract wildlife, such as kingfishers, barn owls, otters and many deer!

Local groups, attractions and hearty traditional country pubs!

There will be an array of information about the nearest places to enjoy food and drink (inlcuding some excellent ales!). Vouchers are available for a free drink to have with a meal at our village community-run pub The Punch Bowl Inn. We have made a map of local attractions so you can see how we are in the centre of all the action, with the coast a short drive to the East and Newmarket to the West.

Discover local history of the Knights of St John

By the 12th century the Manor (200 metres from Welhams Meadow) had become the property of the Order of the Knights of St John and became their headquarters for Suffolk. Records kept at St Johns Gate in London, show that this site is unique in having detailed records of the four hundred years between 1150 and 1550. We have conducted a vast amount of research to consolidate written accounts, previous occupants, photographs and extensive exterior archaeological digs; with some being on display on May 12th!

Renewable energy system

To celebrate our recent silver award by the Suffolk Carbon Charter, the Welhams Meadow site office will show information about our discreet solar panels that collect the sun’s energy, which is then stored in the innovative Tesla batteries. This reduces the cost on both the environment and the energy bills. Ideal for one of the sunniest parts in the country!
