A short drive from London, Oxford and Cambridge, but far enough from the city to enjoy the British countryside is New Barn Farm in Bedfordshire.

This place offers a family camping holiday experience but with none of hassle and mess. The tents are already pitched (canvas tents with beds that can be made on arrival) and meals which can be pre-booked and prepared for when you arrive. Plus with your own campfire, it’s a great place to relax and toast marshmallows on warm summer evenings whilst the kids run free in the secure and vast grounds. Make sure you 'adopt' a guinea pig or rabbit during your stay - the kids will love it. And if you have a horse, there are stable on-site you can hire so you will be able to get out and explore the rural landscapes.


New Barn Farm is approximately 1.5 hours drive from London and a short drive from Oxford, Cambridge, Bedford and Northampton.
