General

  • Surrounded by Hertfordshire and Essex countryside
  • Half an hour by train from London
  • Bike hire, countryside views, playground and shop

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? Have a look at Lee Valley Caravan Park Dobbs Weir, only 30 minutes from the glittery lights of the capital.

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). Pitches have plenty of space between them so there's no chance of feeling hemmed in.

Bike hire is available, along with free wifi, a playground and a site shop. Amenities include disabled access facilities with heated toilet and shower blocks, chemical disposal, and a laundry with drying and ironing.

  • Liked: 

    The cleanliness of the toilet block. Welcome package

    Disliked: 

    The geese poo.
    The weeds on the pitch.
    The website saying it was fully booked when it was only half full (a second motorhome wasn't able to join us for this reason).
    Finding website too confusing and reception staff couldn't help, they need training on how to communicate ie sending text of website or zoom etc, they gave up helping too easily, but it says to contact reception if having issues with website
