Why stay here ...

Lying between Buntingford, Baldock and Royston, this small, peaceful site is easily accessed from the A1 (J9) A507 and A505 and lies up a 0.50 mile farm drive. Woodland and low hedges bound the site with attractive rural views beyond. Walk on footpaths through peaceful countryside.

Historic Saffron Walden, Cambridge, Baldock and Hitchin are  each worth a visit, with many more places of interest. London is 1 hour away.

Update to the last review

As the last review was a while ago, I thought I should update to prove that this CL is still there! Peace and quiet is definitely on the menu. The field is mainly deep clover, so this is not one of the manicured sites, but still lovely. The views are great -from the adjacent field, Michael is so friendly and helpful and loves a chat. The Moon and Stars is doing food everyday now. Good, old fashioned style of CL.

A weekend with red kites

What a nice little site. The owner is very friendly, he let us know where the walks are, there is a bridle path that runs next to the site, and from there you can access many more public footpaths. One path goes up to the church, not the prettiest of churches, but the graveyard has many very old headstones which make for interesting reading. Anyway, the site itself is a square field to one side of the farm and outbuildings. It hadn't been mown because of the lateness in the season, they close next week. The site is very peaceful, very little road noise apart from motorbikes roaring up the A507. There are red kites patrolling the area and also a buzzard, many pheasants, owls (there are two that patrol the hedgerow next to where we were pitched, and many other birds to watch. There is of course fresh water and an elsan point in a fenced in area which is next to the entrance. There is a rustic feel about the farm, Michael, the owner, is endeavouring to encourage various species of birds to visit so there are areas where there are plenty of wild flowers. In fact, the site itself is covered in clover, apparently it looks pretty when in flower and encourages bees (he has a beehive in a corner somewhere). The bridle way to the left goes to the pub, the Moon & Stars (turn left onto the road and walk along for a short while) and also to the Mill End plant nursery. The other direction goes into the next village of Redhill (no pub there now) We will hopefully find a weekend to re-visit in the summer. Nice to find somewhere so quiet and where you are left to enjoy yourself without children running around since it is adult only. Recommended
