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 Hertfordshire.

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.

Small but lovely

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
Our 2nd visit to this small but well kept site. Usual high standards of facilities and the staff were very welcoming, as they should be, and what we pay our fees for. The facilities are clean but older in style, and the gents had only two showers, but as the site is bijou that is not a problem. The site is located just half a mile from the medieval village of Ashwell. In the village you will find a lovely 14th Century Church, coffee shop, bakers and 3 Pubs. Check the 14th Century graffiti in the Church. Just 1.5 miles away is Sarah’s Farm Shop which has most of what you might need. Great mostly quiet roads for cycling, the Village of Steeple Morden is just 3.5 miles away and en route you pass the memorial to the American Airforce stationed there in WW2. The local villages are quiet but pretty with many thatched cottages. Litlington Village is 4 miles from the site (via Sterple Morden) and has a lovely Pub. If you want a quiet location set in lovely countryside and enjoy cycling the lanes, this is a site worth considering.

Lovely place to relax

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
We stayed at Ashridge Farm for a weekend and it was a lovely place to relax. When we arrived on the Friday evening, the site was very full and only a handful of pitches available. The friendly staff member told us that there would be a few people leaving the following morning, so we were more than welcome to change pitch then, if we wished. We spent the first night on the grass section near the main entrance, however we found it rather noisy. There was only a hedge between us and the gravel track outside the site and unfortunately we were disturbed by motorbikes riding up and down and people shouting in the early hours of the morning. Next morning we moved to the main site itself (inside the barrier) and set up on a large grass pitch. Although rather sloping, it was a lovely quiet position. We went on to enjoy a relaxing weekend with our family, walking the short distance into Ashwell and exploring the quaint little village. Thank you to the staff and wardens for their friendliness and efficient running of the site during our stay.

Excellent Site

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
This is an intimate site which is well maintained and cared for. The Club's high standards are maintained. Situated at the edged of a lovey village, adjacent to the country side with access to lovely walks. There are lovely local facilities in the village with three excellent Pub / Eating places. The position of the site with access to many small and large towns and cities within close proximity. In the last year we have stayed at the site on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed.

Great site for a stopover

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
Stopped here for 2 nights on our way from Devon to Norfolk to break up the journey and really liked our stay. Lovely site on the edge of a delightful village that had 3 decent pubs and a local shop, bakery etc. Lots of lovely walks and a spring too. The site was small and had as much storage as it had pitches. A veg stall just outside the site too. The toilet block was small and would benefit from updating but was kept clean. Really enjoyed our stay. Would recommend & return

Excellent peaceful site

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
Well what can I say, as a complete novice with all things relating to the caravan I was hugely impressed. The site was absolutely spotless and not a blade of grass out of place. Upon arriving I was greeted by very friendly staff and patient making the booking in very easy. The pitch we chose was on grass in a nice little corner, pleasantly surprised with complimentary electric hook up as wasn't expecting it. Throughout the stay the site was maintained to a high standard and remained very peaceful and quiet. Lovely local walks for the dogs and parking on the grass area made it very easy to come and go without disturbing anyone. I will definitely be going back soon. Thankyou again for a lovely pleasant stay. Highly recommended A+++
