Town Farm Campsite

4.7 (274 reviews)

Our working farm has been run by the Leach family since the 1930s. We opened a small campsite in Spring '09. Each year since we’ve made small improvements but we’re careful to hold onto our roots as a rural, non-commercial, family campsite! We pride ourselves on our friendly staff, pristine facilities and breath-taking surroundings.

We're situated nearby to the Grand Union Canal with the towpath and boat trips available.

There is a wealth of attractions nearby to entertain in wet and dry weather:

>Whipsnade Safari Park - 10 min drive.

Lake, Reservoirs and Enigma

Brennan, Paul - 08/11/2023

A group of us ( 8 motorhomes - 16 people ) stayed at Town Farm for 4 nights this October 2003 as it was ideally placed for us to visit College Lake & Tring Reservoirs to observe the Wild Fowl that were arriving to over winter. We also took the opportunity to visit Bletchley Park home of British Codebreakers from WW 2 and learn about ciphers, codes and Enigma.All at Town Farm could not have been more helpful or welcoming, The Toilet Blocks were both clean and warm, as were the showers.We were able in the evenings to make use of the Games Room as a social gathering hub. The Cafe in Ivinghoe was visited on Saturday morning for Breakfast - Full English and smashing !! Finally on our last night there we walked to the local PH - Rose & Crown - in Ivinghoe, for a group meal. The quality of the welcome, service and food was excellent, leaving everybody sated and satisfied. In summary what a great place to stay

Well equipped site in a pretty location

Smith, Kate - 02/11/2023

I booked this site as we wanted somewhere near Hemel Hempstead so we could go to the Snow Zone, this worked well. We also enjoyed a walk around the local area and the views from the site itself were pretty. I only liaised with the staff via email but they were always quick to respond and were friendly. We had our caravan but used the toilet and shower block. The kitchen area looked good for anyone staying in a tent. Our children enjoyed the playground and the obstacle course. We were also pleased that there was an EV charging point on site. Considering how much rain we’d had the week before, the campsite was surprisingly well drained.

Town farm is our go to site. We come here every year. Charles and George make you feel very welcome. The facilities are great and every year they make more improvements. The views are fantastic, with great walks along the canal or Ridgeway path and great local pubs. Recommended.
