Why stay here ...

Our CL is set within a small working family farm in the north of Northamptonshire making it an excellent base to explore the lovely villages in the area, or as a stop-over when travelling across the country.

The site is located on a large field with several pitching options available.

Dogs and pets are very welcome and we have excellent dog walking facilities which are traffic and livestock free. Well behaved children are also welcome. All pitches have easy access to 10amp electric hook up. We do not charge extra for awnings.

Within a 30 minute drive we have several historic properties such as Lyveden New Bield, Rockingham Castle, Kelmarsh Hall, Lamport Hall, Boughton House, Althorp; also 5 country parks. All major supermarkets are within 2 miles, as are several village pubs.

We have donkeys and alpacas on the farm who are always pleased to meet our visitors (by arrangement) and CL visitors are welcome to help at lambing time.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss your visit.

We will always return a voicemail message!

Our first CL visit

Northfield Farm
Our first visit to a CL was this one last week on our way to Norfolk and here we are again today on the return journey! It’s a lovely little site, beautifully maintained and positioned. Peaceful, although there is some noise from the A14 but it didn’t bother us. Tony and Frances are very welcoming and checked that everything was ok during our visit. We loved the alpacas and also just had to buy a second jar of Frances’s homemade Rhubarb and Ginger Jam- so yummy! Btw our Aguri Satnav instructions were correct!

Relaxing site

Northfield Farm
A beautiful site with a tranquil air that offers plenty of space between pitches. Well manicured grass and two hard standings are available with a quite secluded aspect. EHU adjacent, (10 amps), and water nearby. Elsan (Organic fluid only) and grey water not too far away in farm yard. You need to lift the wastemaster up to empty it so don't leave it too long if have trouble lifting. There's some road noise from the A14 but we didn't find it intrusive and certainly didn't notice it overnight. Directions in handbook and on website are excellent. The last 300 metres is single track so don't do as we did and arrive early. Apologies to the member who had to reverse. (We had cleared early arrival with the landowner.) The farm lane is easily accessed but owners of wider units need to take care to avoid some over hanging trees, just keep in the middle. Exceeding the beauty and tranquility of the site was the welcome and concern that we were happy. We hope to return.

Friendly hidden gem

Northfield Farm
This CL is so local to us we had never tried it - what a mistake ! We were looking for somewhere close to home to book two pitches to transfer everything from our old caravan to the new and to check everything out. From our very first contact everything was so friendly and accommodating - even sending an aerial shot of the site so we could see how far apart they were. The site is lovely with lots of small touches - the pots of flowers, the small solar lights - the home made jams, local knowledge etc. Nothing was too Much trouble for the owners The pitch area is very large with lots of space with walks straight off the site. The access from the a14 is good - there is some Road noise occasionally but it is very much background - town, shops , supermarkets are all within few minutes drive - yet the surroundings etc make you feel you are in the middle of nowhere. We’ll definitely be back

What an amazing find we had. First visit but not the last.

Northfield Farm
Having been out and about in our caravan for over four weeks running rallies we decided to schedule in a planned visit to Alde for a Fluid Top up on our way home. What a lucky find we had. Northfield Farm is delightful as also are its owners Frances and Tony. Our booking some weeks before was very courteous and friendly and the day before we arrived we received a message wishing us a safe journey and confirming the best route to take to reach the site from the A14 and also advising us details of our pitch would be displayed at the gate should they be out. In fact we received a very warm welcome from Tony, who advised us of our pitch and when everything was. Having sited the van Frances then came along to welcome us. What an amazing site run by such lovely people. It is spacious, immaculately kept and offers everything you could wish for, peace, tranquility, lovely walks, especially around the adjacent wheat field, a chance to visit the Alpacas and Donkeys and to see the sheep. The added bonus is the Honey, and Rhubarb and Goosebery and Plum and Almond Jam you can buy. Amazing. We needed to empty some of the contents of the caravan for our trip out to Alde and were immediately offered a safe place to store them, totally unexpected but greatly appreciated, especially as it rained. The site is quite close to the A14 but we did not find road noise to be a problem at all. We can thoroughly recommend it and will certainly be back very soon and hopefully again at Lambing time. Thank you Frances and Tony. It was our pleasure to have met you and stayed on your lovely site. Jenne and Keith Esssam x

Pleasant Stay

Northfield Farm
We have recently visited this lovely CL site. On our arrival we were welcomed by Frances & Tony, couldn't wish for nicer people. The day before our trip, we received a text message saying have a safe journey and look forward to seeing you. I thought this was nice jesture. The site had grass pitches and also 2 hard standings (we pitched on the lower of the 2) water tap directly behind our pitch . Tony & Frances take great pride in their site which showed. One of the days we were there, the sheep were being sheared, and Tony & Frances allowed us to watch this interesting day of life on a sheep farm. Adjacent to the site was a very large wheat field which you could take a pleasant walk around (2 benches en route to rest if needed). Plenty of detailed information on hand which we found helpful, and we took a walk to the saling club/reservoir. There is some road noise from the busy A14 dual carriageway but it didn't bother us. We would definitely visit this CL again if we were in the area. Ours thanks to you both for our enjoyable stay. Hope to meet you again somtime. Jan & Tony Wilkins
