- Five miles from both Milton Keynes and Leighton Buzzard
- A few minutes' drive from the museums of Bletchley Park
Ouzel angling, anyone? The friendly folk at The Old Dairy Farm in Stoke Hammond have been welcoming campers and anglers since 2002, on a spacious and attractive farm site set in 26 acres of grassland on the banks of the River Ouzel. Pitches are for tents, tourers and motorhomes, with optional electric hook-up when available, and the site is open all year round. Canine campers are welcome too.
The Old Dairy Farm is next to the Grand Union Canal with a grand scale of fishy options for anglers; you can also fish in season on the Ouzel. Stocking up on supplies is a cinch, with Milton Keynes just five miles away, and for thirst-quenching, there are two pubs within a mile, with a couple more along the canal towards Leighton Buzzard.
Amenities on site include a chemical disposal point, a washing-up area and accessible toilets and showers.
Open from 30/03/2018 to 16/09/2018

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Whatever floats your boat, make your way to Milton Keynes for a myriad of entertainment and shopping options: there are regular big-scale gigs at the National Bowl, the good-sized Milton Keynes Theatre for thesps, and music venues for jazz, rock, folk and blues – try The Stables for a melting pot of most musical genres and The Pitz Centre for punk and metal.
Cryptic types can puzzle things out at Bletchley Park, and binary sorts should like the National Museum of Computing with its working replica of the Colossus computer. Going further back, the Milton Keynes Museum has the Stacey Hill Collection of rural life from before Milton Keynes was developed.
Leighton Buzzard, between Milton Keynes and Luton over the border in Bedfordshire, is where the Grand Union Canal was opened and is a short drive from The Old Dairy Farm. For sightseeing and events, the Leighton Buzzard Railway runs through the spring, summer and autumn, with Santa specials running in December.
Film buffs can look out for the settings used in The Great Train Robbery, which happened just outside the town at Ledburn, while for golfers there’s the Leighton Buzzard Golf Club where guests can play during the week; grab a membership for weekends.
Walkers and nature spotters can stroll around Stockgrove Country Park between Milton Keynes and Leighton Buzzard, or carve out a path on the chalky Chiltern Hills, most of which are based in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For a literally breath-taking experience, clamber to the top of the two highest Chiltern hills in Buckinghamshire: Combe Hill, with its iconic landmark the Combe Hill Memorial commemorating Buckinghamshire men who died in the Second Boer War, and the Wendover Woods-covered Haddington Hill. We’ll kindly point out that you can also drive to the latter…
