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.

Peaceful, friendly and pretty as a picture.

We've stayed here a couple of times now and each time has been nothing but a joy. The views are breath taking, the site is very peaceful and tranquil and the host, Adrian, is one of the most accommodating and friendly you will meet. We only live about 12 miles away but come here for the odd "weekend escape" with our motorhome and even though it's local we could be in the middle of the west country with the rolling hills and views. Lots of walks, bike rides from the site and a local village pub about 11/2hr away. We've seen wildlife we wouldn't normally see, buzzards, hares boxing, deer skipping about, swifts etc all from the luxury of a camp chair. A gem of a CL site and well worth a visit.

We have just returned from a wonderful six days at this beautiful CL which has far reaching panoramic views over the Northamptonshire countryside from its vantage point high on a hill. Adrian tirelessly working on the farm it could not have been more helpful or informative. The CL is ideally placed to visit many places of interest in the area, including Althorp and Silverstone together with other stately home properties. We shall certainly return and cannot recommend the site enough to enjoy the peace, views and the places of interest to visit in the area.

Excellent CL in a rural location

Dodford Lodge Farm
The rural location of this CL makes for a quiet and tranquil stay. There was some farm traffic movement but that's to be expected on a working farm during a very busy harvest time but it certainly didn't intrude. There are abundant walks from the site for the dog, including a hard surface byway which is ideal if the weather isn't as dry as it could be. The serviced pitches are well spaced with waste disposal and recycling/rubbish bins to one side of the site. The fish and chips from The White Horse at Norton lived up to their reputation. Ideal site to potter around the local area or as a base to travel further afield. Very obliging host in Adrian who provided the directions and any other information we required. Would definitely recommend.

A perfect place to stay

Dodford Lodge Farm
We needed a location to stay over for a weekend family visit and this fitted the bill. As suggested please take the directions offered by the owners and NOT what your Sat Nav may tell you. Easy to find, the farm track is well maintained and the pitch vista is uninterrupted from left to right. Yes you can just about see parts of the A5 and A45 but compared to most of built up UK it was silent. All the expected facilities are on hand and the tv reception was excellent. You will pitch on the top of a very slight slope. Would suggest going to the Heart of the Shires Shopping Centre if you want some retail therapy as it is only 5 mins away on the A5. We would certainly use it again for another family stay over.

Wonderful Hidden Gem

Dodford Lodge Farm
Wow this CL is one of the best we have stayed on its simply stunning. We only live a few miles away but could have been anywhere. The owner Adrian is excellent and communication beforehand and is super friendly and knows the area so well . We felt like we were staying with friends due to his warm welcome. Equally if you want a quite break you don't feel intruded on at all. The site itself is set on a working farm with the most scenic views spreading for miles and miles. The sunset is worth wandering across the site to see and there is an abundance of wildlife to spy. The local area has lots offer with the Heart of the Shires shopping village just a stones throw along with a very good local farm shop called Noborough on the A5 their meat is excellent quality ( this is coming from a butchers daughter so I know my meat). The little village of Weedon is just down the with Antique shops and a little Tesco. Further up the A5 is the Narrow Boat Inn which has an extensive menu and the food is pretty good. I could literally wax lyrical about this site all day we would struggle to find a CL much better than this and the bonus of being so local. We can't wait to return in fact we have just rebooked for this weekend.
