Harrold Odell Country Park


There is lots to enjoy at your local country park. Whether it is a short walk to blow away the cobwebs for a day out with the family. Come to the visitors centre to find out what there is to see in the park and enjoy a drink or an ice cream at the cafe.


31_play_area_harold-park.pngThere are play areas located at either end of the main bridleway through the Park. The most recent, located near the Visitors' Centre, is for young children (1 to 7 years) and was the result a joint funded project by WREN, Bedford Borough Council and The Friends of HOCP.
A second play area for older children is located near the Odell entrance to the Park.
A skate park is located in the woodland beyond the Visitors' Centre.



Naughty but nice Puddings!

Naughty but nice Puddings!

Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
