 We booked into this site at the last minute when our intended site was turned into a mudbath by a week of constant rain. Very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the facilities, the standard of upkeep of the whole site and, particularly, by the helpfulness of the staff.


The designated pitches were a good size and well-drained

Toilets and showers were very clean

The shop was well stocked

The children's' playground was a big hit with all three of our children and their friends

It would be very difficult to fault anything about this site except for its proximity to the road and railway but I only really noticed them when I consciously though about them. I suspect that anyone used to an urban environment would barely notice them.

 Our group of 25 people had an amazing bank holiday weekend last week, obviously much helped by the weather, but the Campfire and outdoor disco and drinks tent was a great highlight, as was the free tractor ride.

They have great customer services, are all very friendly and they even put on an extra tractor ride to fit us all into one ride and we loved the Bango ducks on the way. My son said it was his best birthday ever!

The playgrounds were brilliant, something for all ages and nicely sectioned off into areas so you can manage the little ones more easily.

The main shower room was lovely and warm, although for the hottest showers you want to be in early (I went in at 10am and it was just warm by then) or leave it till the afternoon when the boilers have warmed up again.

Separate baby change facility.

Free Wifi.

We didn't use the fishing lake. It's not cordoned off so you need to keep an eye on toddlers.

There was a bit of noise from the main road and railways but you don't notice too much.

Surrounding area was great for walks and running. And the walk to Henlow Village and the Five Bells pub (great food, customer service and playground) was a lovely 20 minute stroll with the buggies, there was just one gate that caught us out that we had to lift the buggy over as we came back a slightly different route.

We will definitely be back.

 We stayed at Henlow bridge over the Easter bank holiday. It was our first time here, we found the site most accommodating and the staff very pleasant. There was a slight problem with the electric supply on the Saturday night as it was so cold, I think everyone had their heaters on and it burnt a phase out. The staff worked throughout the night to keep it going and sorted out a temporary hook up for the rest of our stay. The toilets and showers were clean, although I didn't like the showers too much as they were on a push button, which didn't give you much time before having the press it again. I admit that I used the disabled one a couple of times as it was an electric shower. Overall, a lovely site, with nice walks around the river. I will definitely go back.

 We chose this campsite as it was relatively near to our home and as an avid camper we had just purchased a Conway Cruiser we thought that we should have a practice putting the camper and awning up, and also to see how our two 1 year old Labradors would take to camping. The pitch was a good size with electric and a water tap next to the pitch. Only stayed one night here.

We did get it all erected and found a few bits and pieces we needed.

We have driven passed the site often and It always seemed very busy.

Entrance to the site was with swipe card

We were met by very polite staff who were keen to answer any questions I had.

Toilet and shower block was clean and warm. There is also a laundry room and wash up area but we didn't use these facilities. Large play area for the children.

We had a busy time but would return maybe with the grandchildren who would love the playground.

 A truly wonderful site with great staff. We arrived in pouring rain just before one of the worst gales of the season.

The owner was very helpful and totally unfazed by the weather,

The site is incredibly well drained (which was just as well due to the horrendous rainstorms we have been having!) and them toilet block was kept clean despite the conditions.

We were on hard standing with EHU and water to the pitch. The amenities block was close by and was heated which was a bonus. Showers were free and roomy.

Shop sells all sorts of useful bits and pieces for camping, caravanning and fishing. The food side had all the basics too at very reasonable prices.

Originally we planned to stay 3 nights but were so impressed that we stayed on for an additional 2 nights.

An easy site to find and one where we will definitely return.

 We've just returned from our second visit and can't praise this site high enough.

The facilities are modern and very, very clean and well maintained. My wife love's the launderette. :)

The staff are very friendly and helpful in every way.

The touring pitches are a good size and the electric card meter is a brilliant idea, as you only pay for what you use.

There is a large fenced play area with lots of climbing frames, play houses, slides and swing's etc. All in excellent condition.

This is lovely site to visit for fishing or a relaxed family break.

We are already looking forward to our next stay.

Just want to say a BIG thank you to all the staff for their time and effort it is much appreciated.

Reviewer: Madcow1953 1 review from this member

 We have just spent the weekend here and had a great time. We are an 8. 9m motorhome and have been able to get on to pitch 15 with no problem.

I can't praise the cleanliness and facilities of this site enough. The whole site, including the shop, is immaculate and the staff really friendly and helpful. I can't speak for the toilet block/laundry facilities as we are self sufficient but I believe they are just as pristine. The bin area, grey waste & chemical disposal points are all very clean, tidy and discrete.

There is plenty of space for children to run around and there is play equipment too.

This is our second visit and on our first visit we walked through the woods to discover we were just a short walk to Champneys at Henlow Grange. This gave me the idea of booking a day there and not having to drive all the way home after all that relaxing. This could be ideal for any partners who are visiting the site with their other halves who are there for the fishing.

There is a lovely pub called The Crown in Henlow which does great food. We haven't walked there but I am sure it wouldn't be too far but I am not sure I would like to do this in the dark. There is another lovely pub in Ireland, called The Black Horse, which is about 4 miles away which is worth having a meal at if you can get booked in. It is so busy that they need a car park attendant! Take away menus and other offers were provided on check in with the really informative site leaflet.

The A507 does go quite near the site but it did not spoil our enjoyment at all. The train station is just a walk away which I believe goes into London but I didn't hear one train the whole time.

The owners obviously have spent and continue to spend money on this site and they have every right to feel proud of providing a great place for all to stay.

We were very sad to leave.

Reviewer: SuePeck 1 review from this member

 An excellent site - facilities second to none. Husband really enjoyed his fishing - fished lake opposite the tent - fish not as big as those from the lakes further away but plenty of them. Added bonus that tea etc could be made fresh (although by me unfortunately) and we enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast on Sunday morning. We ate at local pub on Saturday night - not cheap but good quality food and excellent service. We will definitely be back.

Reviewer: Happy -Campers 24 reviews from this member

 We stayed for 2 nights so we could visit the local area.

We were located on a hard standing pitch with electric hook up.

The electric is on a card meter system which is very good, we only used 1 for 2 nights but we are a low user unit (not lots of gadget)

The toilet and shower block was very clean and warm.

There is also a laundry and washing up area - again very clean and warm.

There is a shop on site which was ell stocked and was good price on most items.

There was a key system for the toilets/showers,

The gentleman was getting the grass cut on the Thursday for the weekend.


Laundry and kitchen at night. Also with these keys was a 'zapper' for the gate.

We would use his camp sie again

The only negative point about this canpsite was the road noise

Reviewer: Kirby7oak 1 review from this member

 Great Site stayed over a weekend it was very quiet the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The toilet block was very clean and warm and in over 10 years of touring it's the first time we have seen child height sinks for the little people to be able to wash their hands.

There is plenty of footpaths around the site and also many cycle tracks as well.

We didn't have time to try out the nearby pubs but the Orchards in nearby Fairfield Park serves a good meal.
