Why stay here ...

Laurel Cottage is a privately owned small scale family run site, set within 6 acres of landscaped gardens and meadow land, located on the edge of the Chilterns.

The site has been established for over ten years and many of our customers are regular visitors who enjoy the peace and tranquillity that Laurel Cottage offers.

Our ethos is to provide an attractive and secluded setting where people can unwind and enjoy the surroundings and relaxed atmosphere.

The pitches are level and lawned grassed areas that are regularly mowed. There is plenty of space for ball games or sitting out with the barbeque. There are pathways through the meadows and a wooded area for walking the dog or for children to explore.

The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers and the adjacent hills and canal tow paths provide plenty of scenic routes to follow.

There is a multitude of attractions to visit nearby, including Whipsnade Zoo, Mead Open Farm, Bletchley Park and the National Trust Visitors Centre at Ashridge Estate.

The local market towns of Tring and Leighton Buzzard are within a six mile radius and offer a range of shops and facilities.

We would appreciate it if pitches are vacated by 11.30am and earliest time of arrival is 12.30pm. Payment on arrival is preferred.

Early booking is advised to avoid disappointment, particularly for bank holidays and peak summer weekends.

Ideal for - peaceful stays, families and dogs.

Facilities on site - Information room, WiFi available in certain locations.

Exceptional CL

Peaceful, immaculate, attractive and enjoyable location. Jean and Philip run a tight ship by dint of hard work and perseverance. The 'garden type' setting is a home from home - if not better - with plenty of wildlife around. The plants and birds are numerous and interesting. The owners do not intrude or bother the guests but are on hand if needed as they are busy working at maintaining the very high standard they have set themselves. Our first CL visit but I do not expect to experience another site quit like this one. The grounds are extensive and provide an interesting walk around, especially after a good meal. Highly recommended and very worthwhile a visit with plenty to visit and see in the surrounding countryside and villages.

What a lovely site

We have just returned from a few days at this lovely site. Jean and Phillip were very friendly, a friendly welcome but they did not intrude. They keep the pitches well cut - as soon as someone left Jean was there on the mower. Plenty of places to visit, we shall have to go back as we didn't have sufficient time. This CL has spoilt us for others. The only problem was getting there - the council has changed one of the road numbers, the A4146 changes to the B440 but we found it.

A little gem!

We have been to this site a number of times and will be returning. It's just so pretty, imaginatively laid out. While the front site is more formally, the far end is delightfully wild. with a large field in between absolutely ideal for playing on. Our 2 1/2 year old grandson just loved the gnome trail and the dog just couldn't believe the smells (working cocker). And my wife couldn't stop buying plants & cut flowers. This is a site that is cared for with passion. We've been doing CLs for 30 years and this one rates amongst the best of the best. You do need to book in advance - we were lucky you get a pitch when out granddaughter was born a week early and we had just a few hours to fine a site. We are booked in again for August! Oh do be aware of the telegraph pole, you need to take a good swing at it to get in!

Excellent CL

Just stayed three nights at Laurel Cottage. Beautifully kept, spacious, and friendly welcome. There is the CL field - more like a spacious and well cared for garden - and another field further back. We stayed on the latter, and it is very spacious, with half of the field given over to an informal nature reserve. Very peaceful. Grandchildren loved it, and were especially taken with the adjoining small wood, with its hidden "treasure hunt" garden gnomes.. Highly recommended.

This was our first visit to Laurel Cottage but I doubt it will be the last. We were seeking a relaxing one-nighter away from home and this CL fitted the bill perfectly. We were not concerned about going off sightseeing, but wanted a peaceful place to 'chill'. The site was beautifully presented and maintained, with local information available and plants for sale. The owners should be very proud of such an immaculate CL!
