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.

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.

Directions

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 6.5 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.

Wonderful 4 Nights

We stayed at the site for 4 Nights and had a wonderful time. The Wardens (Temporary Ones) were wonderful and assisted us when we had questions. The site is clean and tidy. A short walk into the village where there are Pubs and a Museum; plus, a couple of churches, that we were made very welcome at. We will be going back later in the year.

A good experience

Have just come back from a thoroughly pleasant weekend at Ashridge Farm. Having read a review about aircraft noise I was surprised that we weren't bothered by it at all. Yes, there is some light and occasional noise but the aircraft are not exactly into their final descent on to the runway. The site was small and peaceful so would probably not appeal to families. There were no children about when we were there. Plenty of dogs though and with plenty of places to walk then this is a good location to stay. The village (about a 10 minute walk to the centre) was very attractive and the three pubs offered something different and were great. The whole ambience of the site was fresh and clean and the flower beds were beautiful. Would definitely come back again in the future.

Nice small quiet site.

Nice clean site. Only 39 pitches so small. Showers and all facilities very clean, well maintained. Quiet too, didn't notice excessive aircraft noise. Wardens very helpful, approachable and easygoing. Lovely walks from site and only 10 minute walk to village with 3 pubs, butchers, bakers and shop. Would return.

Was I on the same Campsite

Having just read the last two reviews in which members were complaining about aircraft noise and caravan washing at Ashridge Farm, I was beginning to wonder if I had been on the same campsite as my experience of it was entirely different. Granted that there is some airplane activity but as it seems to be aircraft on approach to Luton they are virtually coasting along. The sound was hardly intrusive and certainly not at night. They seemed to finish by about 11 o'clock at the latest. As for caravan washing, again that was happening but was very quiet. I could barely hear the power washer and I was on the same grass area as the person complaining about that. My own experience of Ashridge Farm was very positive. It is quiet, very clean and tidy. The wardens do an excellent job. The site is ideally located for visiting many interesting places such as the Shuttleworth Collection, Wimpole Hall and, of course, the Imperial War Museum at Duxford. If you go there you need good walking shoes and allow at least a whole day to see everything, possibly two days if you are like me and want to read every information board. We spent a most enjoyable week at Ashridge Farm and would certainly recommend it.
