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.

Excellent CL

Old Farm
We only stayed here one night as we were catching up with nearby friends on our way home but we would happily have stayed longer. A lovely peaceful site, very well maintained indeed. As someone else has already noted, the trees on site are much bigger now than in the original photos and it looks much better as it gives a sense of enclaves but still with lots of space and views. The sunset was lovely. Lots of space between pitches which is very important to us. Great to have our own water supply. Nice and quiet. There was a group of people at one point at the top of the lane which made me panic even though I had not read the earlier reviews about boy racers. It was not an issue though, just a group of friends meeting up, not noisy or any trouble and were soon gone, do not let those reviews put you off as this is a fantastic little site. Mrs. Barbour was very helpful when we booked and was fine with us having our friends come to the site to take us out for lunch. (We recommend the White Hart, Sherington where we had a superb lunch). We can't comment on things to do in the area as we were on a pitstop but the surrounding scenery was very nice. Highly recommended and we would happily return.

Very peaceful location

Old Farm
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'

Old Farm
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

Old Farm
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

Old Farm
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.
