About The Courtyard

Wakefield Country Courtyard

Welcome to the Wakefield Country Courtyard – a unique and relaxed, rural shopping village and experience for the entire family. The site comprises two courtyards that historically were part of the farm and is located on the A5 only 2 miles north of Milton Keynes.

Within these converted farm buildings we have created a beautifully-located, country shopping centre with a thriving community of local businesses and shops that deliver a wonderful experience to all visitors to the site. Whether you wish to take part in art and crafts classes such as stained glass foiling, needle felting, silk painting or glass fusing; be pampered in a beauty salon; relax in the spa; purchase speciality foods & drinks; browse upcycled and pre-loved shabby chic items; buy unique furniture, homeware and gifts or simply sit with a fresh brew and homemade piece of cake – we have it all at Wakefield Courtyard.

Easy access from Milton Keynes, Stony Stratford, Towcester or Northamptonshire is guaranteed – so why not drop in and enjoy a peaceful shopping experience in the middle of the countryside.

We also have enough space for coaches; we ask that coach parking is by prior arrangement only please.

You will always be given a warm welcome at Wakefield Country Courtyard and enjoy a relaxed shopping experience. We are sure you will have a great time visiting us and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
