Cold Harbour Spinney

Remarking on the Starkadder clan has caused me to remember that the Furzton estate in Milton Keynes is associated with the "Cold Harbour" fields.  I wonder if there is a linguistic link with Cold Comfort Farm?  Perhaps a "Cold Harbour" is likewise a place where you can stay, but without really enjoying any creature comforts.  If so, most unlike Furzton - which is very pleasant, with nice houses that look like houses and a rather nice lake.
