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.

Overnight 15/16 August 2020- lovely

We were able to get a very late booking at Laurel Cottage due to cancellations. The landscaping is lovely with a cute gnome walk and putting green. Lots of space between pitches. Electric hookup at each pitch but no facilities so need to be in a self sufficient van, the welcome and interactions were friendly and helpful. Opportunity to buy homegrown veg and plants. Great for a peaceful and relaxing week end away.

A perfect site

I've enjoyed my long weekend so much I've extended into next week! Ok so the weather forecast has helped but this is just such a lovely site and I hadn't yet explored the many local foot paths that I decided to stay on at least a couple more days. Phil is lovely, accommodating and the pitches are so spread out and scenic and well tended. A real jewel I stumbled upon as I needed to visit nearby. My pitch is one of the furthest and I don't have Wi-Fi but it's so pretty I'm not missing it! Little walking areas are very pleasant. Would definately recommend.

Peaceful site

This is a beautiful site in a lovely part of the country. It’s well laid out, tidy and really peaceful. We found plenty of walks and some beautiful countryside. We were only able to stay for 2 nights over a weekend but when booking we enquired, as we often do, if we would be able to stay until 3.00 pm on the Sunday to make a proper weekend and this was agreed. We were a little disappointed,therefore, to not only find there was an additional charge for staying beyond 2.00pm, but also as we left the site at 10.00 to walk the canal towpath and have lunch, we were met at the gate and told to vacate the pitch at 11.30. After a hasty walk we packed up and left. It would have been nice to have been told this when the booking was made or even as we arrived on the Friday. Lovely site but not one to go for just a weekend away.

Wonderful CL for our first trip post lockdown and in our "new" Motorhome

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the beautiful, quiet, relaxing Laurel Cottage. Hats off to Phil for being so welcoming and for one of the best kept CLs we have stayed on. We traded up our old Majestic 140 for an Bailey approach Autograph 745 during lockdown so were really looking forward to our first proper trip away.So, not only were we delighted with the new van, but also spending our first trip away at Laurel Cottage. The site is beautifully laid out with stunning flower beds and grass that is like a snooker table! 3 great walks done, to Ivinghoe Beacon, Mentmore (and the site of the Great Train Robbery at Bridego Bridge) and into Ivinghoe itself along the bridleway. The Village Swan pub, 5-10 minutes walk away had also just opened up, under new ownership, and we were welcomed by the new hosts as we sampled our first post lockdown pub pints (recommend the Tring Brewery Side Pocket) in the beer garden whilst watching Red Kites wheeling above us. The Old School Curiositea Tea Rooms also served a very nice latte, and the Rose and Crown (where we had stopped almost a year ago when staying on another local site) also served a very tasty Chiltern Pale Ale. All in all, a fabulous few days, in a spectacular area for walking and scenery, great site, 2 excellent pubs, what more could we ask for? Thanks again, Phil, we'll be back! Chris and Carolyn

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...
