As the name suggests, Commons Wood Caravan Club Site backs onto delightful woodlands and is within reach of several beautiful parks. For those who fancy some excitement and limitless shopping options, the caravan park is only 20 minutes away from central London by a fast and frequent train service into King's Cross. Easy access to the city makes the site an ideal base to visit any of London's popular exhibitions held at sites such as Olympia or Kew Gardens.
Commons Wood Caravan Club Site offers a wealth of options to keep everyone in the family happy. The lovely Stanborough Park is only about 2 miles away with a playground and crazy golf as well as a gorgeous lake where you can try your hand at boating and fishing. Reed Marsh Reserve - which is incorporated within Stanborough Park- is an ideal spot for bird watching. You can also explore several National Trust properties within the local area. The closest town to the caravan site is Welwyn Garden City, built soon after the First World War as part of the Ebenezer Howard's Garden City movement and one of the finest examples of modern town planning. Its rich history is evident in such artefacts as a Roman Bath preserved in a steel vault under the nearby A1.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
