General

  • Well-maintained farm site in a green setting in the Chiltern Hills
  • Between London and the Cotswolds, a mile from Stokenchurch village
  • Within half an hour's drive of Henley-on-Thames and Oxford

Drive deep into the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to stumble upon a surprise: this well-maintained site on a farm setting surrounded by scenic walks in the green countryside and to local villages.

As well as having chances to roam all around, Old House Farm Rural Camping Retreat is a peaceful place with thoughtfully designed facilities. Being within about half an hour’s drive of Henley-on-Thames and Oxford for riverside rambling and 45 minutes from the rides of Legoland and Thorpe Park, it’s also an excellent Buckinghamshire base with easy access to attractions and activities for all ages and tastes.

Those looking for a wildlife respite will be pleased to know there are plenty of chances for nature spotting in this green belt area between London and the Cotswolds, such as at local village Stokenchurch just over a mile away, which is known for its red kite population after these birds were reintroduced to the area.

If strolling around stately homes is more to your tastes, the farm is a 15 minutes’ drive from High Wycombe and 10 minutes to Hughenden Manor, the ex-residence of 19th-century prime minister Benjamin Disraeli. Wycombe Museum is another old house with manicured gardens, and West Wycombe Park, yet another fancy manor, is just outside town.

If pretending to be a member of the aristocracy for the afternoon gets you hungry, head back to site for a barbecue followed by a warming session around the campfire. For eating out and snacks, restaurants, a coffee shop and takeaways are in Stokenchurch and the nearest pub serving food is 20 minutes’ walk from the farm.

    Really liked the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. When we arrived there were only a couple of times there and everyone seem to be really chilled out. Fantastic view over a small valley..a great way to wake up. Shower and toilet facilities immaculate at all times really impressive! We found a lovely farm shop (Lacy’s Farm) and my young son and I barbecued two monster steaks for supper!

    Disliked: 

    We really disliked...the fact that we had to leave and come home..☹️

    Easygoing site, pitch up anywhere.

    Disliked: 

    Quite noisy, lots of road noise and machinery in the field next door till late at night, might be worth throwing some ear plugs in.

From the manager...

Thank you for staying at Old House Farm. I apologise for the noise of the machinery but it has been harvesting time and unfortunately the neighbouring farmer did not give us any notice of his intention to work in the evening. Apologies again.

    Absolutely everything! This is a gem of a campsite, small but with everything you need including plenty of space. The goats and alpacas are awesome and lovely to open the tent to see them in the morning. Really friendly owner who was happy to talk to us about the animals. The kids and us loved every second, so much so we stayed an extra two nights. Cant wait to visit again (hopefully with some baby alpacas 😬🤞)

Local attractions

Adventures in the Chiltern Hills really are varied: the area has everything from the manmade Hell Fire Caves network for underground rambles to flying lessons at Wycombe Air Park (both 10 minutes’ drive).

More of a train fan than aviation aficionado? Bekonscot Model Village & Railway is 25 minutes’ drive, and about the same distance is the animal petting and feeding – plus go-karting and crazy golf – at Odds Farm Park.

A few other places to suit the kids include the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre (30 minutes) in Great Missenden, paying tribute to the author who lived in the village for more than three decades. And for a guaranteed way to keep the younger travellers busy? There's always the rides and shows at Legoland Windsor (35 minutes) and Thorpe Park Resort (45 minutes)...
