Why stay here ...
Abbotts View Alpacas is a working ECO farm where we breed alpacas. The farm is off grid and is 100% powered by solar and wind. This means our electric hookups are limited to 6 Amps/1.4KW (enough for everything but a household kettle and heating, for which you will need to use gas). Being an ECO site we have a strict chemical policy where we can not dispose of anything antibacterial. This includes your usual blue toilet additive and pink rinse. We have an eco friendly additive (Blue Bio) available to purchase on site.
Please ensure that your chemical loo is empty and rinsed before arriving as we cannot dispose of chemicals on site.
Our Certificated Location is surrounded on three sides by small alpaca paddocks with alpacas and their cria (baby alpacas) gently grazing. Due to their very inquisitive nature you will no doubt have them watching you and they are particularly fond of laughing at people's reversing techniques!
The site is flat and laid to lawn (awnings with breathable groundsheets only please). There is a freshwater point within the field and direct gated access to the toilet disposal and recycling point.
The farm is unique as it is an eco farm with no national grid electricity connection. All electricity and hot water is produced through harvesting renewable energy.
There is a separate toilet block nearby which includes a wheelchair accessible toilet. Being off grid means our sewage is also treated locally using a system that requires naturally occurring bacteria so no traditional toilet chemicals are permitted. Instead we have to use a natural environmentally friendly toilet additive. The only suitable one that we are aware of is called Blue Bio. We can provide it at a discounted price.
We also have ducks, ponies, rare breed sheep and pigs, pygmy goats, guinea pigs and rabbits at the farm and, depending on the season, we may have free range duck eggs and home reared pork available. Beyond the alpaca paddocks you will enjoy viewing the beautiful Chiltern Hills and Dunstable Downs. Overhead are many species of bird including red kites, barn owls, tawny owls with many other species in the nearby woodland including bull finch, chaffinch and woodpeckers. Light pollution is very low which allows for some spectacular skies at night. Due to the wonderful open vista and elevated location you are advised to use storm straps on your awning in strong winds.
There is access to several public footpaths just outside the main gate, one of which leads to the village green with easy access to the village pub and church. The site is 5 miles from the nearest towns of Leighton Buzzard and Aylesbury and 17 miles from Milton Keynes. London is just a 30min train ride away from Leighton Buzzard.
Woburn Abbey and Safari park is a 20 minute drive and Waddesdon Manor is just 10 mins. There are several other historic buildings within easy reach.
The site is secure with CCTV cameras and an electric gate. A key fob will be provided for the gate (refundable deposit required).
Additional Car per night by arrangement.
