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.

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.

The pub is pretty good as well

No point repeating what others have said. In summary a lovely little site immaculately kept by helpful site managers: easy to find and access providing directions given by the club are followed: conveniently located for lots of local attractions including Duxford air museum half hour away. Now, the important bit: food and drink!! Of the three pubs in Ashwell the Bushel and strike is closed until "further notice". The Rose and Crown is spasmodically open but seeking new tenants. This leaves the three tuns, conveniently the one nearest. A very cheery welcome, Dogs allowed in the bar and you can eat there as well. Food, for the location and price was excellent. Freshly cooked, not a microwaved bit in sight, free range chicken, innovative (chicken parmigiano was a treat to find in a small-village pub)... a little bit of a wait time but nothing to complain about. Again the wine list was above average for the type of location. Elsewhere in the village, a lovely little tea room, a great butchers, a pharmacy, post office and news and an artisan bakers. For those of faith three churches to choose from. This site is definitely one I want to return to. Even with storm Brendan shaking the van if felt a very comfortable place to be.

Ashridge Farm

A return stay, just for a night this year but time enough to wander down to the attractive village of Ashwell and enjoy a walk to the wells and river Cam which looked lovely in the autumn. A very nice little site.

Delightful Ashridge Farm

This site is a delight, small and perfectly formed. From the moment of arrival and meeting the friendly, efficient wardens you know this is a laid back, relaxing place to be. Although small the facilities are spotless and warm. WiFi on site is very good. Radio reception is ok, can’t comment on tv. Phone signal with EE is a bit patchy. Ashwell is a lovely village and has a shop, bakery, butchers shop and 3 pubs. The church is a gem, the highlight for me was the medieval graffiti. Lots of POI in the area including Wimpole and Duxford etc. Traffic free walks direct from site. Plenty of supermarkets and petrol stations in Royston and Baldock
