Why stay here ...
Gregorys Field is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Vale of Aylesbury and Chiltern Hills on the Buckinghsmshire/Hertfordshire border - it is perfectly placed to explore one of the most beautiful areas of Southern England. This is where the TV series Midsomer Murders was filmed.
Tucked away in a secluded meadow, well sheltered by hedges and trees, the site is part of the land of the Gregory Family who trace their roots back in the area to the 13th Century. Quiet and rich in wildlife, the surrounding farm land has a network of public footpaths and leafy lanes that provide easy access by walking or cycling to the nearby villages of Long Marston and Wilstone with their public houses and shops. Two miles further afield is the pleasant market town of Tring.
We carefully preserve the ancient pasture and hedges at Gregorys Field and still make hay on the adjacent land using our vintage farm machinery. Visitors in July and August may witness the event. The caravan site has the basic required facilities but is deliberately kept uncluttered in order to provide the genuine charm of a true rustic environment where people may enjoy the tranquility of the traditional English Countryside.
The area is steeped in history, having been settled by the Saxons in the sixth century, Gregorys Field was part of the Manor of Puttenham, mentioned at the Synod of Hertford in AD 672. Subsequently, it was owned by Leofwin who was killed alongside his elder brother King Harold at the Battle of Hastings. Traces of a Roman Villa were found at Puttenham in the nineteenth century.
There is a multitude of places to visit and things to do within striking distance of Gregorys Field and these are detailed on our website. Fans of walking and cycling are spoilt for choice as regards the huge network of public footpaths and lanes that cover the surrounding farmland, all over the Vale of Aylesbury and up into the Chiltern Hills - a public footpath runs past the entrance to the site. For true rambling enthusiasts, there is the Aylesbury Ring (31 miles) that comes within a hundred yards of the Site. Also, the nearby Ridgeway Path that runs for 85 miles from Ivinghoe to Avebury along the edge of the Chilterns and gives stunning views of the Vale.
On the other hand, why not just relax in our rural idyll.
