What makes it such a fun place to visit?

Experience the Country is an outdoor/indoor pursuits and 4×4 off-road driving centre set on a beautiful 800 acre country estate.


At the heart of Experience The Country is Managing Director, Val Wood. It all started when her and her husband, Bryan Wood began farming in 1964, as a tenant of the National Trust, on a 180-acre farm on Dunstable Downs.

Since then they’ve launched themselves into a ginormous range of diversification’s, such as restoring a 15th century barn, becoming the largest turf growers and producers in the country and having the Millennium Stadium and New York Jets as their first customers! Impressive right?

Now with over 1,400 acres, across three farms, Val and her son, Anthony, continue to run the working farms and two other business, including Experience The Country, which launched 8 years ago.

With a 4×4 off road course, that was originally designed by Land Rover, boasting tracks of over 3.5 miles of steep hills, deep water and wooded sections, it’s the perfect place to put your driving skills to the test.

The office is run by a small enthusiastic team, dedicated to ensuring all guests have the most memorable events and the very best of experiences.

The estate has welcomed many faces from the rugby world over the years and been featured in many high profile events including:

  • The Chris Evans Breakfast Show Sporting Challenge
  • A 4X4 is Born for the Discovery Channel
  • BBC South today news

The estate has excellent transport links for both road and rail with easy access to the A421, A5, A4146, M1 and M40. Just a few minutes’ drive from both central Milton Keynes and Bletchley train station (where we are happy to organise pick up and drop off).
