Flower Delivery to Barton Mills by Clare Florist

Want to see scarecrows in all shapes, sizes and features? You should visit Barton Mills during the Scarecrow Festival. After a 4-year hiatus, the event is back for 2014, ready to scare birds and people alike, but only if you find scarecrows to be terrifying. When set next to a garden of lush flowers in Barton Mills, probably not so much. Featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most scarecrows ever built, you can bet that this festival is something to look forward to. This is not all that Barton Mills has to offer, however.

But first, a look into its colourful history…

Barton Mills is a civil parish and village in the Forest Heath district of Suffolk, England. Its name, according to Eilert Ekwall, a professor and outstanding scholar of the English language, means Corn farm by the mill. Before Barton Mills, however, it was originally called Barton Parva (Little Barton), and was only changed in the 18th century when travellers from London to Norwich used it as a half way house, thus the modern name that the village is known for.

In 1086, as recorded in the Domesday Book, the population of this picturesque village was just 24. Today, around 900 people live in the area. You can just imagine how they managed to create a record-breaking number of scarecrows.

What makes Barton Mills a must-visit?

One, it was once a favourite holiday retreat of Alexander Fleming. You know; the guy who discovered penicillin. His country home still stands to this day with the plaque that clearly shows who owns it. Aren’t you just a tad curious why he keeps coming back to this small village? It must be the peace and quiet. Or, it could be the breathtaking landscapes that showcase some of the best Barton Mills flowers.

Two, there’s the Scarecrow Festival that runs for two days and feature lots of entertainment. There’s music, dancing, food, and stalls of any kind. Should you wish to send flowers to Barton Mills, there’s no better time to do it than during a festive event.

Three, there are plenty of areas in the village that present walking opportunities. If you’re a fan of leisurely strolls and hiking, you’ll be spoilt for choice. You can also enjoy going on a picnic, cycling or jogging in the same locations. With fragrant and colourful flowers in Barton Mills as a backdrop, you’ll definitely enjoy the time you spend outdoors.

Moreover, Barton Mills have several accommodation options nearby. There’s the Olde Bull Inn Hotel that is over 500 years old, which means it oozes with an old-world charm. Don’t worry about rickety floors and damaged walls, because the inn has been lovingly restored and refurbished, after it was bought in May 2007.

0.60 miles away is the Travelodge Barton Mills that offers clean, comfortable and very affordable rooms. It also provides travellers with different facilities, such as local car hire, parking, no-smoking rooms, TV and tea/coffee-making equipment.

Other lodging options include the Riverside Hotel, Ravenwood Hall Country Hotel & Restaurant, Worlington Hall Hotel and Orchard House Apartments.

The closest is the Bell Inn, followed by Chilli Bar & Grill @ The Chequers, Red Lion, Cock Inn, Rising Sun and the Merry Monk, which is 4.76 miles away.

Barton Mills may be small, based on its population, but it’s big enough to accommodate tourists, locals and scarecrows alike.
