This week I spent time at Grove Lock Marina CL on the Grand Union Canal near Leighton Buzzard. It is CL number 11 on page 283 of the 2017/2018 Caravan and Motorhome Club Sites Directory and Handbook.

The reason I like it so much is the setting; on the canal, part of a narrow boat marina with the very good Grove Lock Public House (a Fullers house) adjacent to the marina with your own key access to it from the CL and the marina. Excellent facilities, WiFi and the grass pitches have electricity and water to hand. For the security conscious it has electric gate access and since the last time I stayed here the owners have opened up a thirteen pitch site adjoining the CL but separate from it.

As a train enthusiast I love seeing the Virgin passenger trains and quite a few freight trains coming in and out of Milton Keynes but I know there will be some motorhome owners who would find that a tad noisy so I guess I am a bit biased on this feature.

The same company owns CL number 1456 which is the Kings Orchard Marina near Lichfield. The owners, Pridewater Estates Ltd, can be found HERE
