From A418 (From Aylesbury towards Leighton Buzzard 5 miles from both towns). Turn left sign posted Aston Abbotts and Cublington
After approx 1 mile you will enter Aston Abbotts and pass a thatched pub (The Royal Oak) on your right. Be careful of oncoming traffic just past here as the road narrows.
SatNav will direct you to take the next left turn onto The Green; ignore this as it is not suitable for caravans.
Continue for 40 yds passing the bus stop and post box then take the next left at the village green sign posted "Weedon (gated road)". Keep left.
Pass the next 2 left hand turns (the first is The Green but there is no sign, the 2 second is Hunters Way.) You are now on Moat Lane.
After approx 150yds turn right into a single track loose fill road signed for Norduck House and Abbotts View Farm. If you go around the sharp bend to the left and through the gate of the gated road you have gone too far.
Continue down the loose fill road and past the driveway entrance to the cottages on your right.
Abbotts View Farm is the next turn on your right (approx 350 yds) just before the blue sign on the fence.
If you are using google maps then simply search for the Abbotts View Alpacas place mark.
Beware: If you have a garmin SatNav the post code will take you to a different Moat Lane in another village about 5 miles away from us!
Abbotts View Alpacas CL welcomes visitors from Easter until 30th September. As we are a working farm we are happy to welcome older children only (8+ please) and request that they do not enter the working farm without adult supervision.
As we host private farm tours and alpaca walks (www.abbottsviewalpacas.co.uk) we would also ask that you don't enter the farm if you can see that we are showing a group around. This is usually at weekends. You are, of course, welcome to have a wander at any other time! Abbotts View Livery is also onsite but our insurance dictates that it is not accessed by visitors.
All pitches are grass (please call ahead to check ground in wet weather, especially for Motor Homes).
We charge £14 per unit per pitch per night. Every pitch includes a free electric hook up. However, as we are an Eco Farm and generate all our power via solar and wind with a diesel generator for back up it does require that you adapt your power usage habbits a little. Off grid systems do not cope well with high current loads so go ahead and use your fridge, lights, water pump, television, microwave etc just as you would at home but any high power loads can not be used. i.e. Heating, water heating, high pwer kettle can not be used and you'll need to revert to gas. If you have your own solar panels, please do use them. The power is standard 230V.
We can accept a maximum of 5 caravans/motorhomes or trailer tents at any one time and you must be a member of the Caravan & Motorhome Club in order to stay. Please have your membership number ready when booking. Payment can be made via debit card or cash on arrival and cancellations must be received at least 5 days prior to your booked visit.
We accept dogs as long as you are sure they will not try to chase our free range ducks or worry our alpacas or other livestock (who may be pregnant). You know your dog. We have had a dog attack before, resulting in the death of an alpaca so if your dog exhibits any behaviour which we consider not acceptable, we unfortunately have to ask you to leave. This may be barking exessively, or chasing. We are dog lovers, but the welfare of our livestock is of paramount importance at all times.
Please do not wak your dog on farm. There are plenty of places to walk your dog on and off the lead right outside the main gate.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO FULLY EMPTY YOUR TOILET CASSETTE AND RINSE BEFORE ARRIVING ON SITE AS WE CAN ONLY EMPTY ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CHEMICALS THAT WE APPROVE.

We hold stock of Wessex Blue Bio and can provide a bottle at a cost of £10 (normally £13.99) which contains up to 50 doses.
Please do not go up to the fence to 'introduce' your dog to the alpacas. The Alpacas will come over to the fence to see your dog which may appear as curious and cute but they will be fearful and stressed which can cause them to miss carry.
