Why stay here ...

Located centrally between Northampton, Milton Keynes and Bedford, Smith's Farm is a mile from the historic and beautiful market town of Olney, with the river Great Ouse running through it. There are countryside walks available in all directions.

The site at Smith's Farm is level and peaceful, sometimes with horses, sheep or cattle grazing in the surrounding paddocks.

We try to not make restrictions on arrival and departure times unless it is very busy on site. If this occurs we will advise you in advance, so please let us know if you wish to arrive before, or leave after, midday.

Olney itself has many interesting old buildings and a good selection of restaurants, as do many of the neighbouring villages.

A highlight of the area is a visit to Bletchley Park (30 minutes drive), home of WWII code breakers. Also within half an hour: Salcey Forest, Santa Pod Raceway, Stoke Bruerne Canal Museum and many country parks.

For more information please see our Website.

One of our favourite sites

Smiths Farm
Well the previous reviewer said it all and we can confirm it! Since discovering this lovely site it is the one we immediately go for when we’re in the area. It is very well maintained, far away enough from the road to be peaceful with secure access and surrounded by fields and paddocks. The site is well located for visiting places of interest in the area. The owners are so welcoming and friendly the kind of people that make you smile when thinking of them.

What a Gem!

Smiths Farm
This little place is an absolute gem! We only booked the day before arrival and managed to reserve the last remaining pitch.........and we were so pleased we did! From the initial telephone call to arrival on Site and Meeting the Owners, everything was so relaxing and straightforward. The directions given by the owner very good and easy to follow. Olney, which is a lovely little town, is situated just 1.5 Miles and has some lovely artisan shops and numerous Cafes and Coffee Shops. Emberton Park is 2 Miles away and ideal for picnics, fishing and family days out. Other attractions within just a few miles include Salcey Forest, Castle Ashby, Stevington Windmill and Piddington Roman Villa Museum to name but a few. It was so nice to just relax with the sounds of the countryside around. The SIte is kept in excellent condition and a lot of hard work has obviously been put in to make it what it is. Fresh Water is available from two points, Rubbish and Recycling Bins are in a tidy Bin Store, along with the Chemical Disposal Point. The Pitches are clearly marked and spacious. We have just one regret with Smith's Farm............................We didn't find it sooner!!!! There is no doubt that we will return very soon.

Best CL Site I've been to

Smiths Farm
We stayed at Smith's Farm in April whilst visiting family. Daffodils lined the road up to the site enhancing the clean and tidy Farm. Derek was extremely welcoming and the views across the countryside were amazing. Grass is in perfect order. I agree with all the positive comments and would certainly come back again. This is the first time I have been to Olney. Attractive town with interesting shops, cafes and ironmongers.

Another pleasant couple of nights

Smiths Farm
Another weekend on this peaceful well kept site which is located 1-3/4miles outside of Olney. Nothing has chnaged since my last review of this in 2020. It is still very well maintained and it is a pleasure to stay here on a fine dry weekend. From 2020: We had another enjoyable long weekend on this lovely site and were once again made very welcome by the owner Derek and his family. This is a well maintained, quiet site located in the countryside 1 mile from the interesting town of Olney where there are all services available. The River Great Ouse flows on the outskirts of the town next to which is the Emberton Country Park, a popular area for picnicking, fishing and walking. The five grass pitches are well marked and are in a fenced paddock overlooking rolling countryside. Water is available on both sides of the paddock making it easy to refill motorhome tanks with a hose. The chemical disposal and rubbish recycling point located conveniently just at the entrance to the paddock and again a motorhome waste tank could easily be emptied here using a hose. Stagecoach’s number 41 bus route, Bedford to Northampton via Olney, runs hourly past the site but there is no nearby dedicated bus stop and it was not established, if as a country bus, whether this could be flagged down. Good easy walking is available a short distance away via the side road leading to the Olney Park Farm Estate. This takes you into rolling arable farmland with fine views and woodland.

Excellently placed for moving on to Santa Pod

Smiths Farm
We’ve just enjoyed our first (likely of many) overnight stays here before moving on to Santa Pod. It’s a great spot, with excellent security, beautifully maintained pitches and a really quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The owners couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful. Highly recommended.
