Stowupland is centred on several village greens and was the winner of the Suffolk "Village of the Year" competition in 2006. The village has numerous amenities including, a petrol station, two butchers, a Chinese takeaway, a chip shop and two public houses - The Crown and The Retreat. As well as the high school there is a primary school - Freeman Community School, which has an attached pre-school. There are active football (Stowupland Falcons), cricket and bowls clubs in the village. A lottery grant funded gym and indoor sports facility is available for public use at the high school.
The village implements a "Parish Plan" to help steer the development of the village. The plan was produced following the completion and analysis of a questionnaire that was sent to every dwelling and allows residents to have a degree of say in what happens in the village. One of the main aims is to try to maintain Stowupland's separation from the nearby market town of Stowmarket which has expanded considerably in recent years with just a single field now separating properties in Stowmarket from Stowupland. A monthly magazine, "The Telstar", is delivered free to every household and contains reports from parish and local council as well as various articles from residents, clubs and churches in the village. Stowupland previously hosted an event (Music on The Green).
