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.

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.

First Class Wardens and site. January 2019.

We have stopped at Ashridge Farm many times over the last 4 years. With both a caravan and Motorhome. Sally and Graham and Lesley and George ( Relief) are excellent Wardens that keep the site spotless. You always get a cheerful greeting on arrival nothing is too much trouble. The site is set in a peaceful, pretty village with very good amenities, a bakers , small supermarket, butchers , pharmacy and 3 pubs all in walking distance. There is a interesting church and a wonderful museum ( check opening times). For Motorhomers it is a place to walk around locally and you can visit Letchworth Garden City ( parking in Sainsbury's or stores on the outskirts). Royston has a large Tesco and Wimpole NT is not far away with good parking. The station is some 2/3 miles away along a narrow country road so unless you have a car it would be difficult to access. Royston Station is very busy with commuters and parking is very difficult for Motorhomers. Unfortunately the Wardens are leaving in March 2019 but we are hopeful we will get Wardens with a similar friendly disposition.

Overnight stop on way home

Have used this site a few times on way home from France and each time its the same , clean and tidy etc. Yes a bigger toilet block would be good but as its a small site its fine as is. Wardens very helpful and friendly. Like the place just close to the site who sells eggs and veg on the road side with a box to put your money in great fresh stuff. Will use again, thanks.

Maiden Voyage

Couldn’t have chosen a better site for our maiden voyage - beautifully maintained, great facilities and the wardens were so helpful and friendly. This is a small site in a beautiful location. Can’t wait to visit again.

Lovely surprise

Initially we were booked in Commons Wood but a fellow vanner recommended Ashridge so we took a punt and changed our plans. So glad we did. Lovely site, small and very well run by friendly wardens. Yes not many facilities but never any problems with queues etc. Ashwell is a nice village with three pubs, we found the Rose and Crown to be the best. A bakery and excellent butcher . The village store wasn't up to much. Not the best site if you intend to get the train to London. Car parking at the station, 2 miles away, is impossible - due to commuters. No spaces after 7.30am. We'd definitely visit again and it's firmly on our list for next time

Ashridge Farm

A really pleasant little site in a lovely village. We were on the grass area, only eight vans with a nice empty space left in the middle, ideal safe spot for the grandchildren we saw staying with their grandparents. There are some great walks direct from the site, lots of wildlife to see. We loved the walk to the village, three pubs, a shop, café, museum, butcher etc. Interesting church with medieval graffiti, the source of the River Cam with very beautiful chalk springs and a good village cricket pitch. Worth checking what's happening in the village as there are various events. One of those sites we wished we had nearer to us!
