Why stay here ...

My CL is a quiet site set on a working, arable, family farm. It is sheltered by high hedges and trees but with views to the open countryside beyond. The site is flat with short mown grass. The electrical hook-ups have drinking water taps on the posts and they are well spaced to allow easy access to the whole site.

The site is conveniently located between Bedford and Milton Keynes, half way between the A1 and M1. Within 2 miles we have Box End Park with its lakes and water sports centre and Corner 5 Restaurant and Bar.

Very peaceful location

Easy to find along narrow roads for the last mile or two, but we had no trouble in our Motorhome. Do not miss the entrance because the road continues to a dead end private road. The entrance along the road is well signed from the farm entrance, look for the gap in the trees. A neatly laid out cl, with two electric points and one water tap on each post, well spaced out. Short grass, but slightly slopping, levelling blocks required in most places. Country all around, with many walks from site on road or across the fields. Blackberry picking before we left to take home. Bedford town we enjoyed, parked by the river (pay & display) lovely riverside walks and in the park. Thank you Mrs Barbour, we hope to return one day.

'Paradise in July'

A lovely site off the beaten track so not much passing traffic. The grass is short and there is a dog walk around the perimeter of the site. Since the photos were taken the trees have grown quite a lot, not obtrusive and plenty of space. Did not speak to the owner although the grass was cut whilst we were there and an envelope is provided for site fees, to be put through the letterbox at the house. There are footpaths within a short distance from the site. Sharpenhoe NT is an ancient woodland ideal for children, not too far away. In Bedford there is the Priory Country Park with free parking, well worth a visit and Bedford Park with its old bandstand. LIDL is about 3 miles away with other supermarkets around. A site we would go back to if that way.

Great location with good walks

We’ve stayed here a number of times in the last year visiting relatives in Milton Keynes. Very quiet spot with great dog walks direct from the site. The pitches are well spaced and the site is large enough to ensure privacy. Very friendly owners who will help with any questions. Highly recommended.

Good spot

We stayed on this site as a base for visiting relatives. It is very well set up, with hook-up and tap for each pitch; the grass was neatly cut and all well looked after. It is quiet, peaceful and relaxing, well away from any main roads. We could safely walk our dog along the lane and around fields from the site. We will be happy to use this CL again and recommend it.

What a hidden gem!

Having just returned from February half term from this site, what a little gem of a site! We arrived at 3am on a Sunday Morning having already spoken to owner who directed us to a firm part of the site, owner did offer when we booked to put us up on yard if heavy rain had occurred. Site entrance even in heavy rain was stone chipped and easy access. No boy racers to be seen only dog walkers. Grass is well maintained, fantastic views across farmland. Our children enjoyed running round the field. Owner dropped off a local map to us which found very useful. Can't understand the reviews left by people
