Rita is a very welcoming and friendly hostess who has thought of everything. She is very helpful and attentive when you need things and discrete when you do not. The beds are comfortable and the shower is hot. Upper Wood End Farm is a secret idle tucked away but easy to find and a lovely retreat to come back to each evening after my course. I would recommend it to everyone. I cannot think of any negatives.

We wanted something different to a standard hotel, and chose the beautiful Upper End Farm between Bedford and Milton Keynes. The room was lovely, the bed was large and soft, and small touches such as the characterful decor all the way to the coffee was great. We hope to stay again, but in the meantime, highly recommended to everyone else!

Things to do

Footpaths and Bridleways

Straight from our front door we have access to some of the most beautiful walking in Bedfordshire. letsgo.org.uk has masses of information about the county's walks, country parks, rides and nature reserves, and you can find details of the particular routes that go from Marston Moretayne here.

Millennium Country Park

About one mile from the farm is the Green Flag award winning Millennium Country Park and Forest Centre, which is generally recognised as one of the best parks in the country. Walkers, riders and cyclists can explore the 225 hectares of woodlands, lakes, wetlands and grasslands on a range of different surfaced routes and mown paths.

Woburn Estate

One of our favourite places to go is the Woburn Estate, which is home to Woburn Abbey and Gardens and Woburn Safari Park. The Safari park has regular special events and attractions, and is a great plae to go whatever the weather, having both a road and foot safari.

Milton Keynes & Bedford

We are 15 minutes from both Milton Keynes and Bedford. The centre:mk is the central shopping distict of Milton Keynes and has stores for all major brands and plenty of good quality restaurants. Nearby isMilton Keynes Theatre and Xscape, which is home to the MK Snowdome and a Cineworld multiplex cinema.

Xscape, Golf, Big Rock

For those who prefer something more active, or feel they need to burn off our hearty breakfast, there are plenty of leisure and sporting activities close by. There are two golf courses, at Kemptson and Woburn, skiing and snowboarding at Xscape, Milton Keynes, rock climbing at Big Rock, ski and wakeboarding at Box End Park and indoor skydiving and surfing at Twinwoods Adventure.


Cycling is very popular around where we live. In addition to the more sedate routes around the Millennium Park and Stewartby Lake, there are many longer, more challenging routes on road. britishcycling.org.uk maintains a database of all cycle events and races happening throughout the country, and a list of the ones taking place nearby can be found here
