Iford Lodge Farm is a very attractive 5 van C&CC, CS site located near Bradford on Avon on the Iford Manor Estate. The manor has an internationally acclaimed garden that is open to the public regularly.
The site itself is grass but the substrate is rock so motorhomes should not suffer any bogging in. The attractive cherry tree edge field has a gentle overall slope but it has obvious flat areas for pitching all the permitted 5 vans. We take wedges but don’t always need them. Those wanting a pegged down awning will need rock pegs.
We consider it offers good security in that it is accessed through the gated Lodge and located behind a stonewall. Associated is stabling for carriage horses and equipment thus the area is attentively monitored and frequently staff are around.
A local shuttle bus passes the entrance offering 2 hourly frequency rides into Bath and Trowbridge. In particular the ride to Bath is in our “Bus journeys to do before you die” list; it weaves a 30 odd minute heart-stopping route through back lanes into the city. Those on pensioner’s concession cards are permitted to use the Bath service passing at 09:24 hours. For info the Bath P&R scheme accepts the bus concession card also.
There is in Westwood a good Post office general store/newsagents some 10 minutes walk away, and on the “near side” of Bradford is a Sainsbury’s Supermarket. The latter can be done on a bike but involves a few hundred yards of hill accent on a major road before reaching quiet level rural roads.
The bike ride from Bradford into Bath along the Kennet and Avon canal is highly recommended, in total or in part. The initial section from Bradford to Dundas aqueduct, nestling below Brass Knocker hill, should not be missed and offers not one but two aqueducts and several good eateries; one the Angelfish at Dundas.
The area offers some excellent walking opportunities of varying challenges. Note that the immediate zone falls on the corners of four OS Explorer maps so download a free targeted OS map from “Bing maps” before visiting if you plan exploring by foot or bike.
