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.

Geocaching Trip

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
Have stayed here before but only for a night on way back from Europe so a longer stay was booked for us to go our on our bikes Geocaching as lots of caches in this area. Van got covered with sticky stuff of some of the trees and only yesterday had to do the tough job of washing the roof plus the rest of the motorhome. Plus side was the weather was good and we got loads of Geocaches logged during our stay. Good area for bike riding as most of the roads were quiet with little traffic.

Lovely small and peaceful site

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
This was the last site of our first motorhome holiday. We didn't expect or anticipate too much as it was just a stop on the way home but we loved it. The smallest site we stayed on and totally peaceful. The best bit is Ashwell village a short walk away, so pretty and no fewer than three pubs! Although one had not reopened since lockdown. We had the pleasure of visiting The Bushel and Strike with a view of the church. Had our drinks in the garden within sight/sound of their resident ducks and the very attentive and smiley staff kindly squeezed us in for a meal despite being fully booked later that evening. Fabulous meal.

We Enjoyed Our Stay

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
For Motorhomers without a car, this site is particularly handy, being on the edge of this very charming village. The village has three pubs, but we only ate at the Bushel and Strike, which has a large marquee, The cod loin and chips were so delicious, I ate them two days running! Don't miss the water spring with its stepping stones (from where Ash Well gets its name), and the cottage garden. The campsite is in a peaceful setting and offers the usual amenities. Turn left out of the site for long walks through the fields.

Lovely small site in a gorgeous village and lovely area

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
Lovely small site in a gorgeous village and lovely area. Lovely for walks straight from the site, for example to Steeple Morden and back to Ashwell, a lovely village. Worth having at Bushel and Strike. Peacocks heard regularly from near the site. Also good for cycling, e.g. to Guilden Morden, Hinxsworth, Wrestlungworth, Baldock and Bygrave, then back to Ashwell 24 miles. Another good walk is to Hinxsworth Place and village. Back via Ashwell End. The Ashwell church has ancient graffiti inc. Old St Paul's cathedral drawing.

Very pleasant site in delightful village

Ashridge Farm Caravan Club Site
We only stayed one night by design but could easily have occupied ourselves for a number of days. Its set on the edge of a picturesque historic village and has plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling. Imagine once he village pubs are open again an evening stroll for a drink or meal will add greatly to its attraction. We had a polite and helpful welcome and dont need anything else from wardens. The site has more charm than many CAMC sites being laid out without soulless rows of vans. Not able to comment on facilities as the showers were closed for Covid reasons. Overall very pleasant but still overpriced for what is offered
