Alan Rogers Review

Commons Wood Caravan and Motorhome Club site is open all year and backs onto delightful woodlands and is within reach of several beautiful parks. For those who fancy some excitement and limitless shopping options, the site is only 30 minutes away from central London by a fast and frequent train service into King's Cross. Easy access to the city makes the site an ideal base to visit any of London's popular exhibitions held at sites such as Olympia or Kew Gardens. The site has 68 grass or hardstanding pitches all with 16 amp electricity.

Commons Wood offers a wealth of options to keep everyone in the family happy. The lovely Stanborough Park is only about 2 miles away with a playground and crazy golf as well as a gorgeous lake where you can try your hand at boating and fishing. Reed Marsh Reserve - which is incorporated within Stanborough Park- is an ideal spot for bird watching. You can also explore several stately homes within the local area. The closest town is Welwyn Garden City, built soon after the First World War as part of the Ebenezer Howard's Garden City movement and one of the finest examples of modern town planning. Its rich history is evident in such artefacts as a Roman Bath preserved in a steel vault under the nearby A1.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.
