Whittlebury Campsite: Outside of the bell tent

General

  • Scenic dog-friendly site on the grounds of Whittlebury Park hotel
  • A 25-minute drive from Milton Keynes and the National Trust’s Stowe
  • Book watersports on the site's lake or the hotel’s golf course and spa

From gliding across the on-site lake on a paddleboard to a round of golf up at the hotel course, Whittlebury Campsite on the grounds of the Whittlebury Park has much to do for the whole family, within walking distance of the Silverstone Circuit, 25 minutes’ drive from Milton Keynes, half an hour from Northampton and an hour from Oxford.

With a lake on site, it's simple to go for a paddle as you please. The site has paddleboards and a two-person canoe available for hire, so if you’re already a fan of watersports or you’re a first-timer wanting to give it a go, you’ll be well-set for practising your skills here.

Looking to perfect your golf swing too? Or, perhaps you’d rather rejuvenate in the hotel’s day spa? If so, the golf course and spa at Whittlebury Park are available to book from the site. You may well be hungry after all the day’s activities too. If so, book one of the hotel's restaurants to dine close to your pitches.

If you’re missing anything from your luggage or your supplies are in need of a top-up, there are several food shops within 10 minutes' drive of the site. And when you fancy mixing your meals up with a visit to a local pub or restaurant, there are several tasty places to eat within the same distance too.

Please note

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

Fishing is not currently available due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Great site for what we booked it for - Silverstone.09/20/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric optional grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Close to Silverstone circuit with easy access to the circuit entry gates. Guided to our pitch by friendly site staff. Pitches were very flat and totally separate from the tenting area. Short walk to the Fox and Hounds pub/restaurant, which served great food at very reasonable prices.

    Disliked: 

    Nobody mentioned that the water system in the section we were in had to be turned on at via a mains switch, which was located behind a barbed wire fence. Only appeared to be one toilet/shower block for the whole site, which was a fair walk from our motorhome pitch. Probably an idea for portaloos to have been installed in the vicinity of the caravan/motorhome pitches.

  • Electric optional grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    There was very little to like about the site

    Disliked: 

    Considering the site is at a posh golf club the amenities are pretty poor and run down. I had the choice of two pitches both a hell of a long way from the toilets & shower block. They sold a few items a couple of beers and ciders l nearly fell over when l was told the price of a can of Strongbow £4 you can buy four cans for £4.65 in the nearest shop. This is just pure greed l would have payed £2 or even £2.50 per can but not £4.

    The staff from Alex to the lads on site went out of their way to help us get a hook-up pitch despite the normal site been full. The site was he rest for the dogs, walks and water.

    Disliked: 

    It is next door to Silverstone so if you don't like the sound of loud motors it may not be for you, but we love it

    There was lots of space around our pitch toilets and shower always clean and we're being cleaned regularly, little tuck shop that sold a few essentials. Brilliant scenic walks and very close to Silverstone so can walk there.

  • Liked: 

    -Fairly cheap price
    -Lovely views
    -Lake which we enjoyed swimming in (though very weedy in parts
    -Beautiful villages
    -Shopping 15 mins drive
    -Ample amount of ablutions
    -Staff we very nice, welcoming and helpful
    -Dogs are welcome
    -Level pitch
    -WiFi was available but we didn’t need it as phone signal was good

    Disliked: 

    -Misleading website as we thought we’d paid for electric but had to pay extra once we got there.
    -Surrounding areas fenced off so you’re limited where you can walk.
    -Male Ablutions were filthy. Didn’t seemed like they ever got cleaned. Not ideal with a young child.
    -Our pitch was level but we saw other areas are on a hill so you could be unlucky and get an uneven surface.
    -We got quite bored as everything was a drive away and there was no park for our son, no walking routes as they were all fenced off…I know this seems trivial but just a thought- The staff may want to consider building a park, hiring a cleaner and setting out a walking trail.

Local attractions

Head into Stowe for a little bit of history… from leisurely strolls around the house and gardens at the National Trust’s Stowe (20 minutes’ drive) to ducking into Dido’s Cave (20 minutes) and the surrounding temples, there are many old sites within walking distance of each other.

If your visit to Stowe sparks an interest in gardens, Waddesdon Manor (45 minutes) has rather impressive outdoor spaces too, alongside playgrounds, an aviary and tours around the house.

How about a trek somewhere nice? The ancient woodlands at Everdon Stubbs (half an hour) or the river valleys at Ouse Valley Park (25 minutes) are both packed with wildlife. If you’d rather survey the wildlife with a friend along for the ride (likely to be a good pick for kids), perhaps Catanger Llama Trekking (20 minutes) might be what you’re looking for.

If the whole family is in tow, another family-friendly stop is Gulliver's Land Theme Park Resort (half an hour), home to a host of hair-raising rides. And if you’re after a bit of learning along the way, Bletchley Park (35 minutes) was once the home of codebreakers and now it is a puzzling heritage site with exhibitions and activities.

Must see

  • Silverstone Circuit (1.5 kilometres)
  • Stowe Landscape Gardens (5.8 kilometres)
  • National Waterways Museum -Stoke Bruerne (9.0 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Stowe Landscape Gardens (5.7 kilometres)
  • Buckingham Chantry Chapel (9.1 kilometres)
