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.

A really nice CL with a very easy booking system

Dagnall Farm
Firstly, the booking system for this CL is brililant, instantly see if there's availability and pay by credit card, great comms from the owner via email prior to arrival so I knew exactly what to do, pitch allocation, gate code etc etc. Although the field is large, it is only partly mown, but the 5 pitches themselves are mown short and level, clearly marked and with EHU and tap for each, which, with the option to drain direct into the hedge/fenceline, means they are in effect 'fully serviced'. There is stacks to do in the local area and the nearby scenery is beautiful with walks onto the nearby chalk ridges, Ascott House and Waddesdon House (NT), college lakes nature reserve and Whipsnade Zoo all nearby and walks and nice cycling routes direct from the site too. The local pub is an 8 minute walk and serves food, although we only popped in for a drink, it looked very nice and beer was excellent. My only small gripe is that the two 'pairs' of pitches are grouped quite close together in one end of what is a a really big field, I suspect there may have been complaints from a neighbouring property about seeing the vans across the field as there is a random fence erected in the middle of the adjacent field and some conifers recently planted, presumably to screen the view?? The individual pitches are a bit bigger than a club pitch as long as they are pitched on sensibly. I ignored the longer grass when manoeuvring as there was no way of getting the van on the pitch without driving over it and it sprang back OK. Although we didn't see the owner during our stay, the email instructions and boards next to the taps gave us all the info we needed and he replied to an email query very quickly, so this wasn't a problem for us at all. Aircraft noise was present at times, but not bad by any means. I guess it depends on the wind direction, we certainly didn't notice it at unsocial hours during our stay. There is zero road noise and other than that it is extremely peaceful with lots of wildlife about.

More than just a stop over site - A real good find

Dagnall Farm
Everything including the original booking-in system online could not have been better. We booked this site originally for a stop off after travelling to a festival North of London to break our journey back home. What a lovely surprise ! The site is extremely secure, well set out with roomy pitches including EHU & water, everything we needed. We were informed before arrival of our pitch number etc which helps with setting up on arrival, everything was extremely organized. It is located in an area of natural beauty with plenty of walks direct from the site. During our 3 night stay (early June) we did not have any noise problems with aircraft. Needless to say we look forward to returning next year & maybe stay a bit longer. Thanks for having us.

Very Well Organised

Dagnall Farm
This is a lovely CL with EHU and Water on every pitch ( so no need for a water barrel if you have the hose link). It is situated in an area of outstanding beauty with many lovely walks nearby particularly the Reservoirs and The Grand Union Canal nearby. BUT As some other reviewers commented on it is directly on the flight path into Luton Airport and now that Covid is under control flights have probably increased by 200% since last year's reviews. It is non stop at weekends and goes on till 2am in the morning and starts again at 6am. This is a great pity because the owner could not have been more efficient with the booking

Just what I was looking for

Dagnall Farm
Nicely secluded, secured gate access, five spacious pitches well provisioned and laid out. Very pleasant to see the horses on the other side of the pitch fence. A little occasional aircraft noise common to this area same as Bucks. My stay was thoroughly relaxing complete with a couple of walks to the beacon not too far away. There’s not much more one would ask for, a lovely little site and hope it stays that way, it’s so much nicer staying on CLs like this one. I will definitely be returning later in the year.

Alovely few days getaway

Dagnall Farm
What a lovely site, so well organised, Water, electric, wood blocks available at all pitches. We were staying to see friends and family that were local and the directions were accurate and easy to follow, even for some of our visitors. Other than a bit of noise from the planes going in to land at Luton it was very quiet. Walks with the dog up Hog Hall Lane ( Icknield Way) was just lovely. Lovely views and not too many centurions.
