Why stay here ...

Dodford Lodge Campsite is located on a family farm. The site has fantastic views, from its elevated position, across beautiful farmland. The farm has created wildlife strips and from your pitch you may get a glimpse of the beautiful barn owls or the deer running across the fields in front of you.

A quiet and tranquil location but with easy access. There is a fantastic farm shop and butchers, on the farm next door, which is only 2 miles away. Less than 1/2 mile from this you will arrive at the Heart of The Shires shopping village where the old farm buildings have beautiful shops and a great coffee shop. For all those essentials Weedon's small Tesco is only 2 miles away.

The White Horse pub at Norton serves fantastic fish and chips and is a lovely walk or cycle, along the rolling gated byway. Its only 1.5 miles away giving you just enough time to help build up an appetite and thirst!

From the farm there are beautiful walks to be found. There is a lovely circular walk taking in the grand union canal, Heart of the Shires Shopping village and the local farm shop. A slight deviation, all of 5 minutes, lets you grab a pint at the pub in Norton.

If you fancy a day out Warwick Castle is only 25 miles away, or you can jump on the train at Long Buckby, that is 5.5 miles away and be in Birmingham under the hour. Silverstone race circuit is 14 miles away and has an interactive motorsports museum.

The site is ideal for cycling, walking, discovering the attractions in the local area, or just sitting back and enjoying the beautiful views and we hope you have a fantastic time.

Peace and tranquility - not

Dodford Lodge Farm
Second time we have stayed here and unfortunately on both occasions it has been noisy with farm machinery and barking dogs in the farmhouse. I understand it is a working farm - I also understand that dogs bark as I have dogs myself but to say it is peaceful and tranquil is not true. Brilliant views and very pleasant owner but if it’s peace and quiet you are looking for them this isn’t the place for you.

perfect for us!

Dodford Lodge Farm
Dodford Lodge Farm ticked all our boxes - remote, great views, walks and cycling directly from the site and on a real farm. We even got to see the harvest being brought in. Adrian couldn't be more helpful. Would love to visit again!

Just stayed a couple of nights on our way to the West county from Yorkshire ,as it’s easy for us using the M18,A1,A46 and M1. We will be seeing Adrian again in a few weeks. The picture of the site doesn’t do it justice,best view we’ve ever seen. Directions are a bit misleading, the turning into the lane is off the A5 just past the roundabout from Weedon(2nd left not the 1st). Beautiful views all around ,peaceful ,no traffic noise,and Adrian is very welcoming and helpful. George July and September 2023

A lovely friendly site to stay

Dodford Lodge Farm
We chose to book here for our first campsite stay in our new to us first caravan as we wanted to try out our caravan to make sure things were working and how to set it up. I am so pleased that we chose this site. Adrian the owner is a lovely,friendly guy. The site is small, with 5 pitches,but has fantastic country views. It is also very quiet as well. Our pitch was a grass and fully serviced with EHU, water and waste disposal on the pitch as well. A worthwhile trip as we couldn't get our fridge to work! Adrian came to the rescue though, as he let us use a fridge in a nearby outbuilding and we're very grateful for the use of this. We only live 15 minutes away, but wouldn't hesitate to come back again for a change of scenery. I would highly recommend staying here 👍.

Wonderfully in the middle of nowhere

Dodford Lodge Farm
We booked for a week as I had an event to visit close by in Daventry. The pitches are huge and level marked out by fence posts about 12 to 15 metres apart, except for the end pitch, which we took, that is not limited and so you have as much space as you could sensibly want. It's all meadow grass, cut sensibly short (but not an ornamental lawn) and is on a well draining base, so in dry weather, you'll probably need rock pegs for an awning. In late June, we certainly did!! Each pitch has 16A EHU, fresh water and a grey water drain, all positioned close enough to use without needing any extensions or extra length hoses. Entertainmnet is provided each morning by a large number of Hares that race around and by an Owl who seems to roost close by. Access is "interesting". The lane from the A5 is a little rough and narrow; 25mph is too fast. But the gravel track to the farm is in mych better condition, reasonably smooth with little or no ruts. It's only used by farm traffic and the postie, so little chance of meeting anyone. Elsan desposal is on the edge of the site, using a toilet pan sunk into the ground. It's simple, but it does the job. Adrian, the site owner is friendly and laid back about payment "as long as you pay before you leave, that's fine". There are a variety of things in the area, but it is ideal for a location to just chill out. The nearby farm shop is well worth a visit. Or, in other words, a perfect CL. I'm sure we'll return one day.
