Why stay here ...

Situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, Dagnall Farm is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) consisting of ancient Beech and Oak woodlands, rolling chalk downlands and lush meadows. Mown grass pitches provide an ideal location for a peaceful escape, with well-behaved dogs welcome and miles of walks, footpaths and bridleways accessed directly from the site, a 10 minute walk to the Red Lion village pub and plenty of additional local pubs and restaurants to visit.

  • Mown grass pitches
  • Unmetered EHU (16 Amp) and drinking water on each pitch
  • Dogs welcome
  • Secure access
  • Online booking

As well as enjoying the peace and quiet, there is a lot to do locally by day and night! Whipsnade Zoo and the National Trust Ashridge Estate are minutes away, with the Brownlow Cafe providing the perfect stop for decent home-cooked food after a circular walk through Ashridge. Ivinghoe Beacon, Pitstone Windmill, Medieval Edlesborough Church are all on the door step too.

15 minutes away is the historic market town of Berkhamsted hosting an excellent range of shops and restaurants, Berkhamsted Castle, The Pottery Project, the luxurious (and very comfortable) art-deco Rex Cinema and Haresfoot microbrewery bar and shop.

Local National Trust houses include Ascott and Waddesdon. The Tring Reservoirs, Grand Union Canals and College lake wildlife centre, just a few miles from the CL, provide one of the best places in Buckinghamshire to see water birds.

Good late Autumn stay

We stayed over Autumn half term to visit Whipsnade with grandchildren - for which the site is very convenient. I was concerned that after the rain the ground would be soggy but it was surprisingly firm. The site is well set up and the online booking very straightforward. When I wanted to bring the arrival time forward Charles replied promptly and it was no problem. Very nice to see rain covers over the hand sanitiser users. The drive is a bit narrow and rutted but acess from A road and then B road direct to the drive is also very useful. Recommended!

Great location for touring the area

Visited for 6 days to see the wonderful autumn colours and visit friends. Probably one of the easiest CL's to book with the online system and email contact. Arrival time after 2pm is late compared to a lot of CL's but the short access road is used by other vehicles with no passing places so can understand the need for differing arrival and leaving times, but there is plenty of free parking at Ashridge estate if you want to be earlier of contact the owner who is extremely helpful and accommodating. Site is easy to locate if you follow the directions, would be clearer if a CL sign could be placed alongside the road or on the flower tubs but as long as you look where told to and slow down it is easy to find. Keycode entry works fine providing you give the gate time to release and it doesn't swing back onto your vehicle. Plenty of space, incredibly tidy and clean. Pitch up and straight out onto the footpaths, just perfect. Looks of free parking around the area if you want to walk different section of the chilterns, or visit surrounding area, towns, villages there is just so much to do within a 30 mins drive. This site is competitively priced with no hidden additional charges. Farm shop and pub within the village but road system is so quick you can get most places easily, just driving along the roads is enjoyable due to the scenery. Past reviews have mentioned aircraft noise but they aren't that frequent - could just be covid, the noisiest the thing with the red kites ! If you love walking, road cycling, quaint villages, canals, rivers then this site must be on your to do - we've added it to our favourites and hope to come back again and again

Fantastic CL

We have just returned home after spending five great days at Dagnall Farm. This is only the second year it has been a CL and it certainly ticks all the boxes for us. It is very easy to get to and find and is tucked away nicely from the hustle and bustle of town and city life. We were down here spending time with our daughter who lives in St Albans and Dagnall was ideal being only thirty minutes away. There is some great walking in the vicinity and Ashridge Estate is a must to visit with many miles of footpaths to walk on. The CL is really well maintained with EHU and water on each pitch. Charles the owner made himself known to us and is very pleasant and easy to get on with. He has also done a great job with hand sanitising gel adjoining the gate and waste compound. Lastly, there is a great local pub just five minutes walk down the road, good beer, food and chat. I have no hesitation in recommending this CL to visit

Perfect CL site

We had a lovely week-long stay here. A perfect CL site with flat serviced pitches. The local pub is 5 mins walk away and lovely with a beautiful garden and a good value menu. Walking from the site is wonderful with direct access up to the Chilterns and Ashridge Estate. The easy access means there is some road noise but it doesn't detract from the peaceful views and surroundings. We even had the pleasure of witnessing a gathering of 9 Kites socialising and circling the field. We will definitely be returning

close, quiet, lovely

This lovely site is easily accessible from London (26 miles) and was a great launching point from picking up our motorhome at Toddington. Charles is an absolute gentleman and the site is easily found, secure and has everything that you need. As a bonus, the local pub is a 5 minute walk away (great ambience, great meals)and the local squirrels and horses kept the kids entertained! we booked 1 night and ended up staying 2, with its handy location only 30 minutes from Warner Bros studio at Levesden. Thank you Charles!!
