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?

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).

    Friendly and efficient check-in:
    Getting to the reception, receiving a package with all the info, a pitch number and having someone from the staff showing your pitch, the electrics, where are the facilities and all that you need to know it's something that most campsites can't offer, well done Dobbs Weir staff!
    Toilets are a bit outdated but clean.
    The surroundings are beautiful and a lot of paths for walking/cycling

    Near to London
    well priced and saves us lots of money visiting london - with green space to relax in
    clean facilities - good vibe
    very mixed clientele
    good areas to run around

    Disliked: 

    others complain about the noise at night and semi-industrial location. It is near london and is in a built up area. this is part of the reason to visit. My young children had no problems sleeping through.

Nice site, clean facilities, but located in a noisy area.08/30/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousMobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Electric optional grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Children’s play area, very clean campsite facilities, level pitch with EHU, lovely local pub (The Rye House) within walking distance, nice walks/bike ride routes. We were pitched right near the shop, main shower block and play area, so we were lucky to have a great location.

    Disliked: 

    Noise from outside the campsite late at night and into the early hours (industrial estate, the train line and sporadic fast traffic). We wouldn’t have liked being in the tent pitch furthest from Reception/shop (right by the entrance); it was too far from the main shower block and dishwashing area and was right next to the busy road.

    Location is great and site is very flat, always a bonus lol. Loads of spotlessly clean facilities and a small park to entertain the kids.

    Disliked: 

    I found it very bright at night due to the low level lighting around the pitches. This is a personal choice rather than a complaint.
