City slickers! If you yearn for the bright lights of the UK capital but feel slightly faint at London hotel prices, you'll find the setting of Elstree's Aldenham Country Park magic.
This wild camping and peaceful park is less than a mile from the M1 motorway and 12 miles from central London – and three from Muggle-based antics at The Making of Harry Potter as well as seven from Wembley Stadium. (And another topping aspect of Aldenham's location? It's a tiptop option for Londoners seeking a nearby bolthole too.)
Although it's so close to the city, Aldenham is spellbindingly rural, set on a 175-acre parkland site next to a large lake and maintaining a quiet countryside atmosphere with nature walks and animal feeding among the activities for guests. Kids can also search for Winnie in the Pooh in the park's 100 Aker Wood area. Other activities include fishing and cycle rides on woodland trails.
The site's facilities include a café, playgrounds, barbecue rental and a shop selling farm produce. The amenities block has toilets, showers and disabled access.
Open from 04/16/2021 to 09/30/2021
The grocery shop is open between 01/01 and 31/12.
At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.
Facilities/activities including the adventure playground and the farm are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.
Reception is unmanned after 6 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.
Owing to government regulations, groups of 7 or more people are not permitted.
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
There is recycling contribution fee of £2.50 per 5 guests per stay, which is payable onsite.
