A bit about us

Town Farm is a working farm run by the Leach family since the early 1930s.  We opened our small campsite in the Spring of 2009.  Each year since we’ve made small changes to improve our facilities and guest experience but we’re careful to hold onto our roots as a rural and non-commercial campsite.  only an hour from London - the countryside is closer than you think!

We have a no music policy and also no noise after 11pm, meaning we are an ideal location for families and couples enjoying the countryside.   We have 360 degree views - Ivinghoe Beacon to one side, Aylesbury Vale to the other.

There are several great pubs within easy walking distance and there are wealth of local attractions to entertain in wet and dry weather!  

We have 2 pristine facilities blocks each with toilets, hot showers, sinks and washing up facilities.  We also rent out our firepits and sell kiln-dried wood. 

We also have: communal fridges and freezers, communal powerpoints, kettles & microwaves.

Bookings must be made online although groups must enquire firstSummer weekends can fully book a long way in advance.

A well run family-friendly camp site with lots of wide open spaces, football goals and a play park for the kids. When we were there it was quiet and everyone seemed to go to bed at about 10. 30pm. The site is located on a hill, and some of it is quite slopey. The best position to pitch up is at the far end of the site, furthest away from the busy road and with the best views out over the countryside. While the campers were quiet, the road is quite noisy and the site is on the flight path for planes landing at Luton, if the wind is in a certain direction.

If you are camping, bring rock pegs. The ground varies from hard chalky soil which bends pegs to concrete-like solid chalk, which is actually impossible to drive a peg in to. I bent several sturdy rock pegs and broke a mallet while pegging out our tent. Wire pegs will barely break the surface before they bend in half and plastic pegs will be destroyed. You need to peg your tent well because this site is very exposed.

The site's location is excellent. In one direction is a spectacular view of the Chilterns, with Ivinghoe Beacon within walking distance along a footpath opposite the site entrance. In the other is a panoramic view over Buckinghamshire and a footpath to Ivinghoe village through fields of sheep and a wooded lane lined with blackberry bushes.

Camp fires are allowed and you can hire a fire pit and buy wood and kindling from the staff, who roam the camp site on quad bikes. Facilities are good and well looked-after, but might become a bit stretched if the site is full.

When we were there the roof of the building housing the fridges and washing up sinks was home to families of house martins. They didn't mind the people below and it was lovely to see them flying in and out, feeding their young.

Great campsite picturesque location

Toilets and shower facilities were excellent and very clean.

The toilet and shower facilities were kept clean by Sue and her many helpers.

The campsite was very well managed they was always out doing something to make the site look better without disturbing people on the site.

I will be telling everyone I know who goes camping about the site and recommend it to them I really enjoyed my stay and will be going back again and again. Well done sir and all your band of helpers keep it up it is very much appreciated

I phoned and spoke with Charles and he was very friendly and asked me to book online. It was £10 per person and £2 for the dog, a great price for a site in such an awesome location. On arrival he showed us where to pitch, offered us use of a fire pit and logs and then left us to it.

This is my second time here and it is pretty much the same as before, huge fields to choose from, decent toilet and shower block, amazing views and tons of space.

The facilities were incredibly clean and tidy and the shower was a push button type but warm and water was plentiful.

There is a couple of pubs around ¾ of a mile away, we enjoyed one for a few beers.

The main reason we visited was for the walking on the Ridgeway and to Ivinghoe Beacon. The walking is incredible and from the bottom of the drive, cross the road and you enter the footpaths leading to the Ridgeway.

We did a fantastic walk taking in Ivinghoe Beacon, then followed the Ridgeway for a bit, turned into Ashridge Woods, saw some sites then continued down to the Gran Union Canal, we then walked up to Tring station and then back along the Ridgeway. This was about 14 miles and a really good walk and not too tiring.

I would visit this site again and this time we stayed two nights to enjoy the walking.
