Come and get involved with some tale telling either on the grass by the Play area or in our Gazebo (depending on the weather)
The stories will be appropriate to the age of child that comes along.

Rainy Day Crafts

We all hope the weather will be gorgeous while we are camping but hey! It's England and sometimes it rains!
If your kids are feeling a bit tent bound why not bring them over to our craft tent? They can create a little something to take home or do some colouring!
There is a small charge of £3 per child.

Once again the Breckland Astronomical Society will be hosting an Autumn Star Party at Haw Wood Farm.

The Star Parties are a gathering of both expert astronomists , those with an interest in learning a little more and those who  simply want to sit back and gaze at the beauty of the night sky.

Haw Wood Farm has been named a ‘Dark Sky Discovery Site’ due to its unusual lack of light pollution.

We have naked eye visibility 5.73, averted 5.99 and a best SQM reading of 21.75.

Very few areas of the UK have this award which makes us the perfect place to combine a weekend break with some top quality star gazing.

The leaders of the Breckland Astronomical Society will lead a tour of the night sky with the naked eye for anyone who wishes to take part. If you have your own telescope do bring it along but if you don’t please come anyway as there is always someone willing to let you have a look through theirs!

Because of the nature of the event all lighting on the park will be down to a minimum level or off altogether. We ask anyone participating in this weekend to be aware that to observe the stars at their best ,bright lights and torches should be avoided around the observation area and fire pits will not be permitted.

We will be serving hot soup and rolls at 10pm from our cafe to keep you going through the night!

In order to keep the site for astronomers and star gazers we have removed these dates from the website and you will need to book by phone or email.

Family Star Party.

This year we will be holding a second Star Party during Half Term.

This is a family friendly event to encourage new and casual astronomers to come and make the most of our dark skies.

The Orwell Astronomical society will lead guided tours of the night sky and indoor talks should the weather be cloudy.


This event can be booked online.
