Piper's Campsite: View across the fields towards the village

General

  • Back to basics site on a stable yard in Bedfordshire
  • Half an hour’s walk from Harrold Odell Country Park for canoeing
  • On-site tuck shop selling essentials; pubs, café and shop nearby

Take a stop off an ancient green lane and slot yourself away in Piper’s Campsite in the village of Carlton. This peaceful family-friendly site is adjacent to what was once an old highway, now a sweet country lane, and opens up into grazing pastures set in a small, private stable yard. Leave the mischief up to the pygmy goats and their feathery chicken friends while you unwind with views over the Bedfordshire countryside and grazing horses around the site.

If the green spaces are calling your name, muck in from footpaths surrounding the site. Walk alongside the river Great Ouse to the Harrold Odell Country Park in half an hour (also a five-minute drive), where you can launch a canoe or kayak and paddle downstream (for paddleboarding, head to Felmersham, just a 10-minute drive).

If you’re after some downtime, this site will take you nicely back to basics. There’s a portable toilet and drinking water on site and guests can charge up gadgets in the barn. In case your tummy is calling out for a snack or a drink, there’s also an on-site tuck shop selling essentials.

Outside of the site, sip on local ales and fill up on food at two village pubs within 15 minutes’ walk of the site, including cosy beer gardens. There’s a shop and a café here too if you want snacks.

    This was a lovely location, quiet and unspoilt. Excellent value and ideal for people who want to do simple camping and are happy to manage without a shower and modern plumbing. ( There was a drinking water supply and a porta-loo). We had a lovely view across the fields and enjoyed a glorious sunset. Lisa was very friendly and extremely helpful providing us with a great fire pit to use. The field was completely flat and we had plenty of space. We only camped for one night but it provided us with a lovely break and we would happily return.

Local attractions

Dive into the deep end with wakeboarding or open water swimming on the lakes at Box End Park (a 15-minute drive). For those who are a little ninja-like, there’s also an over-the-water obstacle course and an aqua park for kids (or adults) to get stuck into. Stanwick Lakes (half an hour) is another good stop for children’s activities, including horse riding, fishing and pleasant lakeside walks.

If you’re after some indoor activities, Milton Keynes (half an hour) is a good port of call. The Snozone has winter sports and elsewhere there’s indoor go-karting or climbing, if you’re willing to give them a go.

Delve into traditional English heritage with a visit to Turvey House (a five-minute drive), a less-than-discreet 18th-century manor house. Compare the gardens to the grounds at Castle Ashby (20 minutes). The gardens here are so large there’s a nature trail, secret butterfly garden and Italian orangery. Elsewhere, learn about World War II codebreakers at the spacious Bletchley Park (35 minutes).
