General

  • On a 500-acre farm in mid-Bedfordshire
  • Well placed for long country walks and exploring nearby woodland
  • Luxury self-contained yurts with spectacular views

The Old Piggery is south of Bedford, just off the A6 near Haynes Church End, between the villages of Wilstead and Clophill. It's on West Park Farm along the Greensand Ridge, so guests are surrounded by countryside.

The site's aim is to provide welcoming and well-equipped accommodation for business visitors, couples, groups and families. The yurts were added in 2014 and have a backdrop of woodland as well as spectacular views across farmland and the surrounding countryside. Each are fully self-contained with their own ensuite, kitchenette, barbecue and firepit. Books, games and toys available for the kids and there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities all around the site: the arable fields host a variety of wildlife where you might come across deer, rabbits and birds.

Public footpaths and cycle routes are also nearby.

Please note

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.
