 Superb site, a great find with very easy links to the city, the bus stop is on site which takes you to the tube, travelcards can be bought in the shop, around 13 for 2adults, one 14yr old and a free 10 yr old. (under 11s free)

Site is quiet, countryfied! and managers are very helpful, we arrived BH weekend. Wasn't happy with the allocated pitch as someone had pitched too close so walked around and just found a secluded spot, no problem. Showers ok and clean, site well drained (it rained a lot!) shop ok.

 A great site if you are visiting London, yes it is as easy as they say to get into Central London!

Buses run till around 11 back to the campsite (but check before you book).

The site itself is spread over two to three fields, the larger field is flatter. The smaller field is on a slope so be carefull where you pitch due to the rain. Under the Oak Tree isn't a good idea in the rain unless you want your tent covered in twigs and tree like things falling in the wind!

The site itself is very clean and well kept, two large toilet and shower blocks around 10 toilets and showers in each. Hot water not a problem any time of day or night, just keep pushing the button! Reception and shop on site selling more than most when it comes to food!

Reception closes over lunch (didn't know this) and you need to leave a 5 cash deposit for the gate secruity key so make sure you check out and get your cash back when reception isn't closed!

Went to the park on Sunday, a great place for family's, picnics, walks, bird watching with or without dogs! Take a look if you want some peace and quiet or a day out with the kids.

Will be returning at some point this year, it's so much cheaper than having a hotel in London and great being in the countryside!

Have Fun!

 Facilities excellent, toilet and showers very nicely done and clean. Staff brilliant, very friendly and helpful. Useful little shop on site. We found a Morrisons Supermarket a couple of miles away in Chingford mount, which is on the No.215 bus route.

This site is perfectly situated as an overnight stop for tourers travelling between the UK and the continent.

We stayed for 4 nights and used the site as a base for exploring London, as stated by other reviewers, the No.215 bus stops on the campsite and takes you to Walthamstow Central tube station which is on the end of the Victoria line.

Be careful when heading back from Walthamstow, some buses stop about a mile short of the site for some unknown reason. We found the journey in and out of London a bit tedious, but we don't use public transport often enough to draw a true unbiased comparison.

You can plan travel using the London Transport web site to get an idea of journey times at www.Tfl.Gov.Uk

Car parking is available at Walthamstow near the tube station, also at Seven sisters and Tottenham Hale tube stations. We chose to leave the car on site and take advantage of the travel cards, which at off peak (after 9:30am) cost around 7 for an adult and 2 for under 10's. Under 10's can travel free when accompanied by an adult with a travel card but we found this awkward on the underground as you have to keep passing cards back and forth at the turnstyles to get the kids through. Some turnstyles would not register the card twice, so on later trips we paid the 2 to avoid the hassle.

 Only stayed here for 2 nights so can not give a full account but from what we saw and used at this site I would definitely return. Security wise there is a card entry to the site and a key for the toilets and showers (refundable deposit of 5 paid for the card and keys).
The staff were very friendly and helpful at check in and then showed us to our pitch which they changed without problems when I asked for a more secluded pitch.

We did not visit the pub but drove past a large Tesco about 2 miles from the site. The site has a small shop which was well stocked with food, sweets and cooking items - again not used but all seemed clean and not over priced.

The toilets and showers were kept clean and to a high standard. Pitches a good size with well kept grounds, bin areas kept tidy and emptied regularly plus recycling facilities. A good childrens play area on site - but not used by us as my daughter is a bit old for that.

There is a nice walk by the reservoir just round the corner from the site which also leads into more of the Lee Valley Park. Laundry room was kept clean and all in working order. The only slight problem (but wasnt a problem for us) was that they only had 1 washing up sink in use for the whole site - I am sure that they will have that sorted out for busier times though. The site shop/reception also had a lot of tourist information and were very helpful with campers who wanted to take a trip into London on the bus/tube.

 A lovely site, so unexpected to turn off the M25 and within 10 minutes to feel like you are in the middle of the countryside. Very clean and well-kept, good toilet and shower facilities and a small shop for all the usual basics. Also laundry facilities which we did not use but looked to be in good working order and a small children's play area.

Would be an excellent base to visit London, with a seasonal bus service which picks you up at the campsite gate and takes you directly to a tube connection. A bit of a walk (20ish minutes along a fairly busy road) to the nearest pub and quite a bit of aircraft noise but considering how near London you are that is probably to be exepected. The Lea Valley has lots to offer with some very good cycle and walking routes.

Would certainly recommend this site and will definitely return.

 As a relative newcomer to camping I would not include myself among the most experienced. Nevertheless, from the modest numbers I have experienced so far this must surely be among the best sites!

All staff are extremely helpful and seem to go out of their way to help. The toilets and showers are clean and well maintained with no nasty surprises in sight!

A new childrens play area has recently been built leaving you fully confident in leaving them to explore the site in safety since it is entirely secure and enclosed.

It has a surprisingly tranquil, rural atmosphere for a site so close to London with frequent glimpses of scampering rabbits and regular hoots from tawny owls adding to this effect.

It has virtually every amenity you could ask for and I genuinely struggle to find anything worthy of serious criticism!

Would I return? Absolutely! This place is a must for both visitors to London and for locals like myself who crave the odd spell "away from it all" without having to actual travel any great distance.

 Fantastic campsite. Very friendly staff. The shower blocks and toilets are very modern with free showers and water is always hot.plenty of them also.

Very good transport links to visit London with the buses stopping right on the campsite. They sell travel cards inside the camp shop, which is quite small but adiquate and there is a garage 3 mins walk away which sells newspapers.

Only downside is that it is on the Heathrow and luton flight path's but that didn't bother me,but could some people.

It is extremely cheap at 6.75 per person. Also they never asked if you require electric hookup but you could pitch on one. This might have been oversight as I arrived latish on Friday evening.

 We have just returned after spending the Easter bank holiday at this site.

The site is a good size and very easy to find from the M25. The staff were on hand as soon as we arrived and were so helpful. We were allowed to choose the pitch we wanted, there are electric hook ups all around the edges of the site and the only rule they have is that you leave 6m between each pitch.

The facilities on this site were very clean, and there are more than enough for the size of the site. The showers are a comfortable size and the water is lovely and warm.

Despite being on a flight path there was very little noise at this site, and you certainly wouldn't know you were only down the road from the M25!

Trips to London were incredibly easy from this site and the shop onsite even sells the day travel passes which enable you to travel on the trains, buses and the tube into and around London.

On the whole I would rate this site as excellent and would definitely go back again.

Reviewer: Benhur110 4 reviews from this member

 Excellent site ! We stayed 4 nights over the heatwave and found the site to be very quiet, extremely clean and tidy and staffed by very friendly and helpful people.

The bus-route to and from London worked extremely well with the bus stop being literally 20 feet from the site entrance barrier, a 35 minute ride to Walthamstow Central station and a 30-45 minute underground ride to central London. Travelcard (bus, train and underground within zones 1-4 all day) 5.40 per adult with kids going free.

The only noise on the site was joy-riders/street racers on the other side of the reservoir late at night. No problems on site though just a slight annoyance particularly over the weekend nights.

Lots to do round and about the area as well.

Will definitely use this site again and cannot recommend enough to others.

 Have just spent two nights here and thought it was a lovely campsite. Small, clean, quiet and friendly. Really lovely for young children - ours had a ball.

The toilet and shower blocks were exceptionally clean. The staff were helpful and friendly.

I would especially recommend this site to those living in East London who want to get away for the weekend. This site is 15 minutes drive from our house but felt like we had really left London! We will definitely be going back - soon!
