Town Farm Campsite

4.7 (263 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.

Town Farm borders the stunning National Trust Ashridge Estate with acres of hilltops and ancient woodland to explore.

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

We also have 2 great village pubs in walking distance!

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

>Whipsnade Safari Park - 10 min drive.

>The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead.

>Harry Potter World is 40 mins drive or train.

>London Euston by train in 45 mins (From Tring Station).

Electric hook ups are available for caravans, camper vans, trailer tents and motorhomes, but not tents.

Rental Tents are available for those who fancy a ready made camping adventure!

We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful corner of the Chilterns!

Lovely site, been many times before, would recommend.We stopped overnight on a bikepacking trip. Lovely view over the hills and sunset.Facilities super clean.We went to the local pub for food and refreshments- the village swan - also highly recommended.Shame we have to wait until end of season to book one night of a weekend, though I get why they need to do it.

Staff are welcoming and helpful. Good bathroom and kitchen facilities. We love our spot overlooking the fields below and to be so close to the Ridgeway, the Icknield Way and the Ivinghoe Beacon is a joy.

Chilterns Chillout

Smith, Jane - 14/09/2022

Recommended to us by friends as its their 'local '.Ideal geographical setting to catch up with friends from NW London. Close to good road routes and major attractions. Gorgeous views, quiet, occasional aircraft noise but not intrusive.Visit was first week of September so main holiday rush was over but facilities looked ample enough for a busier site.**Forgot to mention to staff that maybe a floor squeegee would be a good idea for the showers.Good hardstanding pitch, water on own pitch. No 9 next to the chemical disposal site but no issues with smell etc.Didn't need them but really great for campers that microwaves/kettles fridges and freezers are free to use.Large capacity too.We only stayed 3 nights but explored Ivinghoe and Pitstone. Pitstone has a fabulous cafe in its Community Hall called COMMUNITEAS awesome cakes and they do breakfast and lunches too.Ivinghoe Beacon walk is a must if you are able. 360 degree view of the area.Overall great site good value fr
