- Spacious 50-acre campsite bordered by Epping Forest
- Three golf courses within 10 minutes' drive; Lee Valley 15 minutes
- Half an hour's walk from the London Underground (Central Line)
Epping Forest – 6,000 acres of green trees, woodland trails and hidden wildlife havens. It's a rather good place to camp in anyone's book, and Debden House Campsite, right in the middle of it all, is a top spot for an alfresco getaway close to central London.
If you're wanting to get into town, or are planning on coming here without a car, you can get to the London Underground in about half an hour's walk. But don't just head into the big city every day you're here, even if you're planning an urban-based break – the area has been described as a hidden gem by many guests due to its natural scenery, with all the wildlife of Epping Forest easily accessible on foot.
This is a spacious spot, with 50 acres of land stretching over seven fields (four of which are suitable for fires). Debden House Campsite welcomes one-night stays, longer stints, youth groups and organised events.
The facilities include a shower block, toilets, a utility room, a coin-operated laundry and a vending machine selling cold drinks; wood is also available to buy. As part of Debden House Campsite's commitment to the environment, guests are asked to make use of the recycling points dotted around the pitching fields.
This is a very safe and laidback site, with an on-site security team on call overnight for added peace of mind.
Open from 26/05/2023 to 10/09/2023

Set off into the forest beloved by William Morris in search of wildlife, or scout out more manicured landscapes at one of the three top-rated golf clubs that can be reached within a 10-minute drive. For more outdoor activities, head north to the Lee Valley White Water Centre (15 minutes), or for an activity that doesn't require a set of dry clothes look at what's on just down the road at River Lee Country Park (20 minutes).
For history, you're close to the Royal Gunpowder Mills (10 minutes), a great place for family outings where you can spend hours learning about gunpowder, explosives and rocket propellants. Other popular kid-pleasing options in the local area include Paradise Wildlife Park (30 minutes), which is full of colourful creatures, and Canvey Island (50 minutes), where you can let the little ones run around on the sand.
With the Central Line roughly a mile and a half away, it's also easy to get into the middle of London: St Paul's Cathedral can be driven to in about an hour, but it's quicker on the Tube, with journeys typically taking about 30 minutes once you've boarded a train.
