 What a lovely site. The wardens were welcoming, helpful and friendly and gave us useful information about the nearby walks and local amenities. The toilet and shower block was lovely and warm and always clean, with plenty of hot water. The Five Bells was the nearest pub serving food, it only took about 20 minutes to walk there from the site & was family friendly, very popular and busy so best to book. Only a few minutes walk from the Station too, if you want to visit London, not on our agenda this weekend, but could be useful. We will definitely visit this site again.

 I really like this site.

We went to this site during a very wet period at the end of the year but this is not an issue. Even though it rained almost the entire time, the ground stayed good and solid, and the roads were always usable. The facilities are superb, always clean and tidy, and the shop is well equipped and modern, the staff are friendly. If you are using this as a base for touring the area, then its pretty good as its a few hundred yards from Hemlow Station, and there are quite a lot of things to do within a short drive, including a superb pub just on the way into Hemlow Village itself. My only criticism would be that if you are a sensitive sleeper, the trains and traffic can be (only a little) intrusive.

The site is oriented towards fishing, and from the look of it there are some quite good facilities for this, including dedicated loos/showers etc.

 We have visited this site several times over the past 3 years.

It is always immaculate, the facilities are of high quality and the staff are always friendly, welcoming and helpful.

The pitches are generous in size and are equipped with individual electric and water point.

We are particularly glad of the disabled friendly facilities and environment.

 This is a great campsite! Owner and all the staff were unfailingly helpful and pleasant.

Facilities are excellent, toilets and showers always clean, water always hot. Really useful disabled/family shower room, especially if you have smaller children who can't cope with high up fixed showers. Free WiFi with long work surface and electric sockets to plug in computers. Free hairdryer and iron. Washing up room with a TV. Plenty of local information, with emergency numbers, places to visit, pubs etc.

Shop has plenty of basics, bread etc can be ordered, alcohol on sale, lots of camping 'bits' if you've broken or forgotten anything + fishing equipment for the lakes facility.

Pitches completely flat (drainage is excellent) and a generous size. Main area has electric and a tap to each pitch. Main part of site is built around a large, well equipped playground with variety of equipment for all ages, it is very much the heart of the site, when we were there the children played there all day long, many families chose to stay on the site all day because of this. Very pleasant walk around the fishing lakes and other footpaths accessible from the site.

Some shops at Henlow Camp but not far to Hitchin or Baldock supermarkets.

Don't do fishing but fishermen seem very pleased with facilities, own loos and we saw some large fish caught.

Only downside is that site is next to A507 so there is quite a lot of traffic noise, this lessens at night but might disturb light sleepers. Arlesey rail station is about 3 mins walk away with trains to London - the trains didn't disturb us at all!

On a wet day, fully recommend the Stondon Transport Museum, quirky and eclectic collection of cars and motorbikes and other interesting things. Sadly their full scale replica of Captain Cooke's ship Endeavour burnt down this year but there is still loads to see.

 My husband & I are first time campers with a small converted van & awning & chose Henlow for our maiden visit out for a practice run. We wanted somewhere that was quiet with a little privacy to practice putting up awning on van etc & avoid total embarrassment!. The site is beautiful with hanging baskets & masses of flowers all around. Well kept & super clean. The owner was very helpful. We were allocated a hard standing pitch with electric hook up. There was also a drinking water stand on the pitch too, in a snug corner with grass either side & pretty trees. Very cosy. (H16). The site was so clean. Immaculate amenities block with toilets & showers & access to Wi-Fi. There are also fishing lakes on the site & the shop was fully stocked with food coffee machine etc & camping & fishing equipment. We stayed overnight for the first time but are already sorting out a return date. It was so quiet & restful. We didn't have time to visit the surrounding area outside the park but will do so net time we go. A highly recommended site. 10/10.

 Henlow has the Clarks Field which we hired for our wedding. It included a roundel (treed area with gala tent, BBQ, drinks tent, fire pit with log store, lots of picnic tables and plenty of sunshine! We were also allocated a quarter of the field for our guests who camped all weekend. We had the perfect weekend!

The campsite staff couldn't do enough to help our wedding run smoothly. They laid on special tractor rides for our guests, which they all loved! The pitches were huge and neatly manicured. They have installed wc/shower/wash up blocks for the fields, in addition to the main facilities block on the main campsite. They have a licenced shop selling beer and wine, as well as almost everything else one could need. They have a large playground for the kids which seems to kept them occupied all day. Ideal! There are man made fishing lakes as well as two large natural lakes. Easy to access from the A1M and M1 - what more could you want!

Every one of our guests (day and weekend campers) lived this site and some will definitely be revisiting Henlow. This site has even converted some non campers!

Treat yourselves and give this site a visit :)

Reviewer: Landy-Trax 15 reviews from this member

 We spent a weekend here with a group of friends. On arrival we were impressed with the site in general but as we progressed through to our pitch we seemed to pass through the nice bit to the cheap seats where the roadway turned into churned mud. This aside, the pitches were a good size.

The toilets and showers are in a portacabin and on the morning we tried to use the showers they were cold so gave up and used our van instead the next day. There is road noise from a very busy road nearby and noise from the mainline into London. When leaving the site the exit takes you out past the Arlesey Station.

The shop is well stocked and the fishing looked good.

On review overall, this is a noisy site and not ideal for a quiet break away.

Reviewer: Keithccs 2 reviews from this member

 This site is excellent. It did not bother us but some may be concerned by road/rail noise on some pitches.

We have a large RV 35' long and accessed the site with a squeeze, though when leaving Chris kindly opened the back gate to ease things further.

Great lakes for fishing, strolling, sitting, or photography like me!

Facilities are very good also.

Reviewer: Soggous 11 reviews from this member

 Booked three tent pitches for my son's birthday party. We only live 15 mins away from this site, we chose it for convenience to home. Booking was done by phone and email, staff were very helpful and accommodating to our needs. We had day visitors coming one day and guests coming for one night only, etc.

Had to pay 20 cash deposit on arrival for a key to open the 5-bar gate that secures the site at night. We also hired a fire pit for the weekend for 25 (included firelighters and a tub of logs, and delivery to the site).

Entrance to the site is via electronic gate, I believe most guests who stay in the main part of the campsite have a key fob to operate this gate but we were not fortunate to receive said fob so had to keep getting in and out of our car to request the gate be opened. Bit of a hassle.

We were located on one of the five rally fields (Maple), which we had to ourselves, great for playing ball games and just spreading out. Other large parties were located in other fields around the site, so despite being spread out and not near anyone else, the campsite was very busy.

Generous tent pitch, EHU pitches were much larger than non-electric ones.

There was a 'new' toilet and shower block for the use of the rally field campers, this comprised portacabins with ladies and gents loos (3 for ladies and 1 for men plus urinal; I understand from the men we stayed with that 1 toilet is not enough. ) Four or five showers (with chair, sink, hooks and curtain; plenty of room to move), and a dishwashing room. Showers were clean on Saturday morning (push button operation) but on Sunday morning they were appalling, grass everywhere. The toilet roll and paper towels also ran out on Saturday evening, not good enough with so many people on site. More attention needs to be paid to keeping the block clean and stocked when so many campers were on site.

There was a large playground, which my kids and their friends spent hours playing on, we hardly saw them! Also fishing lakes if you fancy trying fishing. The site offer tractor rides around the site too, great for kids, not so great for campers when the tractor passes by the tent. ('and on our left is a birthday party. ')

At night there was a lot of noise from the 'inner roundel', where a large party was taking place. We enjoyed the music, and it shut off at 11 pm every night, so wasn't a problem. Other people might not like that though. Road noise is a downside though (A507 constant noise), and the Great Eastern railway runs alongside the site, although I didn't notice the noise from that so much. Also some plane noise from Henlow airfield, again, not really a problem (no flying at night).

Positives of A507 and train line are location, London and Cambridge are easily accessed by rail, and Milton Keynes via the A507. Local towns worth a visit are Hitchin, Letchworth, Baldock; Shuttleworth is nearby, and there's great walking along the Hicca Way, which goes around the site.

All in all, a great local site, but busy and a bit on the expensive side, but good for a last-minute weekend away or party weekend with friends. Just take your own loo roll, and ear plugs.

 This is a really nice site and the team there are very welcoming.

You can hear the train line nearby, but to be honest it wasn't really a problem and wasn't very loud.

Great for children with a brilliant play area for them and great for fishers. Took my children for the first time and they loved it.

Will definitely be returning again.
