Cosy cocoon with two single camping beds

General

  • Wildlife haven with easy access to London
  • Close to whitewater rafting, bike and walking paths
  • London travel cards available to buy

In a wildlife haven among the traffic-free trails of the 1,000-acre River Lee Country Park – and all only 40 minutes by train from central London: have a stay at Greater London's Lee Valley Campsite, Sewardstone to escape the city for a weekend, or to use the site as a nifty rural base for getting into the urban for day trips. (Either way, do take quite a bit of time to get around the country park for ambling, pedalling and wildlife watching among its rare resident species).

Lee Valley Campsite has a play area, a shop selling essentials and one-day travel cards for London, a launderette with ironing facilities, and heated showers and toilet blocks. Dogs are welcome.

The site also has free wifi – just the ticket when researching which museum or shopping area to get to in London first...?

  • Cocoon D camping pod (double)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The staff at the office were very pleasant and helpful. The office also doubled as a small general store that had much more than I had expected. The cocoon I stayed in was clean and functional without any issues. The shower house was very clean and well maintained, showers had hot water. Facility grounds were quite and clean. Uber at 4:30am arrived within 10 minutes to pick me up for ride to airport. Great stay!

    Disliked: 

    I disliked the fact that I can't find places like this back home in Texas.
