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.

Please note: Site is Adults only and we do not accept dogs

Immaculate CL and Adorable Alpacas and other animals!!

Abbotts View Alpacas
Perhaps a bit biased but as an animal lover all my life, this CL is heaven to me and my family! The animals included inquisitive alpacas,rare breed pigs that I’ve only ever seen in New Zealand, Ducks, rabbit and the cutest guinea pig ever! Plus just over the fields beautiful horses roam in the gorgeous countryside. When can anyone stay at a farm with a ringside seat on watching the beautifully looked after Alpacas and wander around the farm ? We felt privileged and welcome. The CL field is flat and well cared for, overlooking the “girl “ alpacas with babies. There is a lovely wide entrance, remote controlled gates for security and immaculately clean toilets, run by solar power infact, the farm house is also off grid, this is an amazing example of the future of CL’s. We were greeted by the friendly owner James, who had complied a useful list of attractions and recommended places to eat as well as our own entrance key fob. .A lot of thought went in to the details. The electric is 6amp, we had no problems, we used our gas Kettle, but also used hot water,Phone charging,fridge and lights on electric. The location is very convenient for many local attractions which are listed in the details, we thoroughly recommend MarvanTurkish restaurant in nearby Leighton Buzzard for a special evening out. I’m a vegetarian and there loads to choose from. We will most definitely be back and would recommend you stay at Abbotts view Thank you. X

Abbots Alpaca Farm - One of the best CL's we have stayed on

Abbotts View Alpacas
This site is great. It ticks all the boxes for us and is great to be so close to so many attractions in the vicinity. If you want peace and quiet this site is for you. Very quiet at night and on a clear dat the stars are amazing. The staff are so helpful in particular James who did everything to help us and more (when I lost my glasses LOL). The Royal Oak pub is a short walk through the fields and the food is very good including a 10% discount if you are staying on the Alpaca Farm. Also really pleased that sites like this are taking the lead on key environmental issues. I would recommend this site to anyone , please please continue to support this CL in these challenging times..........we would not hesitate to go back there. Great for Waddesdon , the alpaca experience itself and numerous NT places (Ascott , The tree catherdral) plus Bletchley Park.

Alpacas - what's not to like?

Abbotts View Alpacas
After a change of travel plans due to traffic and roadworks - we rang up this CL on the off-chance we could get in for a couple of nights - we were lucky. For once the site wasn't busy - when we arrived we were the only ones there - so we had a choice of where we wanted to pitch - so we chose the pitch closest to the Alpacas - which was lovely. We were made very welcome, and the lady who was tending to the rabbits when we went on walkabout came over and spoke to us about the Alpacas. She was very informative - and asked us if we would like to feed them - which was lovely. The lack of a chemical waste disposal on site was no problem to us (they have an eco-friendly waste disposal system) - but had it been we always carry a spare toilet cassette anyway. We used the site loos as much as possible. Staying on the site afforded us 10% off food in the village pub - we booked a table and after a 6 mile walk - the pub grub ticked all the boxes. The website states from £18 a night - they must have put their prices down as we certainly didn't pay that much, but can't remember how much we did pay. This site is perfect for visiting local attractions, one of which is Bletchley Park - which we revisited on our way home on the Sunday.

Fab site, friendly welcome.

Had a short stay here & we would all love to come back! Our children really enjoyed the animals & Alpacas. Clean, tidy & well maintained site. The hosts made us feel very welcome & permitted the children to feed the animals which they loved. Thank you 😊
