Why stay here ...
Within a few miles of the A1 but surrounded by trees so that you feel you're a million miles away from the daily bustle, Ashridge Farm Club Site is a perfect place to relax and unwind. A short walk from the caravan site will take you to the beautiful and historic village of Ashwell where you will discover the charms of the 14th century church and 15th century cottages. You will also find a good selection of local pubs and village shops while touring in this part of Herfordshire.
The local country lanes surrounding Ashridge Farm Club Site are perfect for cycling enthusiasts. There is a network of convenient footpaths punctuating the lovely, gently undulating countryside, which is perfect for cyclists and walkers alike. The university city of Cambridge is only a short drive away from the caravan park, as is the first garden city of Letchworth. You could also visit the historic town of Baldock and market town of Hitchin for an interesting day out. Other local attractions include the working farm estate of Wimpole Hall, the Duxford War Museum and Shuttleworth Aircraft Collection. Further afield, the charming town of Saffron Walden is well worth exploring. If you fancy a change of scene, the frequent rail service from Ashwell and Morden stations make it possible to visit the city of London.
Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, as this leads you through the village with very narrow roads which are unsuitable for towing. Leave the A1(M) at junction 9 onto the A505 (signposted Royston). Then follow the signpost Royston onto Baldock Bypass. Do not turn off the first left (signposted Ashwell), this is a narrow bumpy road. In about 2.5 miles turn left at the second signpost Ashwell, Steeple Morden, Station; within 0.25 miles turn left into the road signposted Ashwell. The site is on the right in 1.5 miles.

This is my second attempt...the first being taken down for no apparent reason last night! Firstly, I have stayed at this site several times before and always found the wardens polite and professional. The site itself is a little old fashioned looking, but clean, spacious and has a lovely charm. Great village, pubs and walks nearby. Yesterday, I arrived over an hour early. Completely my fault as I'd wrongly assumed check in was 12pm. The office was full of the 4 wardens with no other customers in sight. I asked if I could check in early and was told, by one lady, no. I won't comment further on the short conversation thereinafter, but would, as a paying and loyal customer, have expected some flexibility given the site was only around 60% full. The reason for my 1* review isn't the site, but one warden's complete lack of customer focus, which in my opinion, is the most important factor. I'm not looking for this lady to be disciplined, even though it appears (looking at previous comments) that I'm not the first to complain, but would like some reassurances from the club that wardens are properly trained in customer care, and have the flexibilty (which I've seen administered before-for myself and other customers) to allow certain rules to be acted upon more leniently when the situation allows. I feel this is a fair review given yesterday's experience.
Moderator Comment - Your first review was hidden, and reported to the Community Manager, as will this one, simply because of the comments you made about Club Staff. I see you have moderated your language in this second attempt. However the review section is not the place to complain about individual members of site staff as they have no ability to put their side of the story, this should be done directly to the Club where it can be properly investigated.
