The Suffolk Owl Sanctuary at Stonham Barns welcomes Group Visits and will do all we can to make your visit an enjoyable one. If you have special parking requirements please let us know and we will reserve you spaces adjacent to the centre whenever possible. The Centre is 'fully ramped' inside for ease of access and manoeuvre (with the exception of the woodland walk during very wet weather) and there are disabled toilets on the Stonham Barns complex. If you have any special requirements, please let us know.
The Sanctuary opens daily from 10.00am to late afternoon, 7 days a week. Flying demonstrations and talks take place up throughout the day from Easter to September.
Stonham Barns itself is a great place to spend the day - there are numerous craft & gift shops, a garden centre, driving range & 9-hole golf course and a coffee shop & restaurant, plus plenty of free parking and many traffic-free areas.
The Suffolk Owl Sanctuary at Stonham Barns is situated on the A1120 Tourist route, easily accessible form the A14, A12 and A140 - simply follow the brown signs. Our telephone number is (local rate number) 03456 807 897. If you need further help, please email us here.
