General

  • Surrounded by Hertfordshire and Essex countryside
  • Half an hour by train from London
  • Bike hire, free wifi, barbecue area and shop

Are you up for escaping London town for a spell? Or how about settling down within easy reach of it at less than city prices – leaving you free to spend your dosh on train fares into town and quite a lot of London beer? Have a look at Lee Valley Caravan Park Dobbs Weir, only 30 minutes from the glittery lights of the capital.

A nifty base for city trips or Lee Valley sojourns, Dobbs Weir is surrounded by Hertfordshire and Essex green countryside, and carefully landscaped to fit in with its natural surroundings (excellent countryside views come as standard). Pitches have plenty of space between them so there's no chance of feeling hemmed in.

Bike hire is available, along with free wifi, a playground, a barbecue area and a site shop. Amenities include disabled access facilities with heated toilet and shower blocks, chemical disposal, and a laundry with drying and ironing.

    My tent pitch was right near the children's play park and the facilities, which made life much easier. Although the site isn't very big, this still gave me peace of mind.
