Open from 1st April until 30th September.
Abbotts View Alpacas is an adult only site where the focus is on peace, quiet and relaxation. We are located inAston Abbotts, the winner of bucks best kept village two years on the trot. With high hopes for this year too.
We breed alpacas and also have ducks, ponies, rare breed sheep and pigs, pygmy goats, guinea pigs and rabbits at the farm. The CL is next to our alpaca paddocks where you’ll be able to watch alpacas and their cria (baby alpacas) gently grazing. Due to their very inquisitive nature you will no doubt have them watching you too and they are particularly fond of laughing at people's reversing techniques!
There are 18 National trust attractions within a 30 minute drive of the site with Waddesdon manor just 10 minutes away and Ascott House just 4 miles. Woburn Abbey and Safari park is a 20 minute drive. There are many other attractions within easy reach including the very popular Bletchley Park (home of the code breakers).
London is just a 30 minute train ride from nearby Leighton Buzzard. We are just 5 miles from the market town of Leighton Buzzard and Aylesbury and 17 miles from Milton Keynes.
There is access to several countryside walks via the public footpaths just outside the main gate, one of which leads to the village green with easy access to the church. The neighbouring villages of Wingrave and Cublington are within walking distance and both have excellent pubs (with many more village pubs and restaurants just a short drive away).
Aston Abbotts is well known for cycling. Many cycling competitions include Aston Abbotts on their route. The villagers set up drinking stations outside their houses for the passing cyclists.
The site is on high ground with beautiful views of the Chiltern Hills and Dunstable Downs. Overhead are many species of bird including red kites, barn owls, tawny owls with many other species in the nearby woodland including bull finch, chaffinch and woodpeckers. Light pollution is very low which allows for some spectacular skies at night and extremely quiet except for the noises of animals at night and the church bells during the day.
The site is flat and laid to lawn (awnings with breathable groundsheets only please). There is a freshwater point within the field and direct gated access to the toilet disposal point. The elevated location gives wonderful views. You are advised to use storm straps on your awning if strong winds are forecast.
We have two onsite toilets, one of which is wheelchair accessible. We have our own ecological sewage treatment system which produces clean water for the local pond. It digests waste using naturally occurring bacteria and requires that you use a green environmentally friendly toilet additive (or maybe use no additive at all). There are several now available on the market. We always have plenty of our favourite additive (Blue Bio) in stock onsite should you need to purchase some.Please ensure that your chemical loo is empty of any anti bacterial toilet chemicals before arriving as we cannot dispose of chemicals on site.
The farm is 100% powered by solar and wind. Electrical hook ups are 6 Amps/1.4KW.
This is plenty for most users but you will need to use your gas for heating when the weather gets colder.
The site is secure with CCTV cameras and an electric gate. A key fob will be provided for the electric gate.
We have additional parking available for visitors or an extra car by arrangement.
There is no charge for a motorhome with an additional car in tow.
Please ensure you read about our Chemical and Power policy

Other pets: Please ask. For example, we have successfully had people with house cats (that stay in) but cats that go out have caused the alpacas to alarm call all night which keeps everybody up and causes the animals stress.
