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.

Wide open spaces over two separate grassed areas

Does Phil work hard or what, wow he does put some effort into looking after the spaces you can pitch. There’s even a walk where the gnomes live and work just right for doggy meanders. Top spot handy placed for Chiltern ridge walks where model gliders fly frequently... spot on Phil...

Fantastic CL

Stayed here for 4 nights from Sept 3rd, its a fantastic CL and exceptionally well laid out and run. (We should know as we benchmark against our own CL) The pitches are spacious and not overlooked, the grass is short (lawned) well maintained, and the services are excellent. Great welcome on arrival and nothing is too much trouble, fantastic hosts. As locations go, then its ideal. Loads of walking and things to see and do. The Dog walk on site is just brilliant and well maintained. Its a 10 out of 10 from us. We will be back.

Great Place to stay

We stayed here to attend a Wedding in nearby Milton Keynes, it is a great site. The site is very well kept, very spacious for each pitch and very well maintained grass and surroundings. There are some close by footpaths taking you through the fields or Dunstable Downs is nearby, which can be walked if you don't mind the hill climb. Ted the dog was very happy at this site. Highly recommend .

Calm & relaxing

Calm, relaxing, tranquil. Some noise from aircraft during the day, but not at night, and definitely NOT intrusive. Otherwise most noise comes from the birds - saw over 12 species in our 4 night visit without really trying. Large site with pitches on well mown grass that seems to be free draining (had rain while staying) Pitches are a good size. Site is surrounded by trees and contains lots of shrubs good for pollinators. Some of the area has been allowed to "go wild" with paths mown through the grass - lots of wild flowers & different grasses - take your wild flower book if you are not good at ID! Gnomes to visit in the woods! Please note that the directions refer to the junction between the B489 & the A4146 - the latter is now a B road - but site is still easy to find. Owner friendly & pleasant. Good for visit to Bletchley Park - Home of the Codebreakers, and also the National Museum of Computing. Lots of walks from near the site.

Relaxing, Peaceful & Beautiful

We were met on arrival by the owners who were only too pleased to show us our pitch for the weekend. Each pitch was extremely spacious with individual electric points, water taps close to hand and ornamental waste bins as beehives close by. The site is beautifully kept with trees and flower borders within quiet and peaceful surroundings, there was a good supply of fruit, veg and plants which can be bought. All in all we had a wonderful stay with the owners working extremely hard to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. We thoroughly recommend this site and we will be returning again.
