 Excellent site with great facilities and location, perfect for both the water sports on the Lee and also access into both London and surrounding towns.

The customer service was great and very helpful.

We will definitely be back.

Reviewer: Hoedown 46 reviews from this member

 As an elderly couple venturing out for the first time in lockdown we were quite cautious about the social side of the campsite.

We liked the hard-standing pitches well separated from each other. Toilets/showers had alternate basins and toilets closed off and only 2 people were supposed to be in there at any one time, but this was not adhered to. We also found them to be very cold especially as the outer doors were constantly propped open.

Fri/Sat night we had a group of about 7 females sitting around outside in a non socially distanced party until at least midnight. They were sharing 3 pre-erected tents, This did not impress us.

There were plenty of walks alongside the canal, boots were essential due to the muddy terrain.

We had a pleasant lunch in the cafe across the weir but again did not feel very comfortable with the covid restrictions not being enforced.

It was nice to be able to get away at last for a change of scenery, but I don't think we will be returning.

 We like dobb weir very much. we came in September and wanted to come back in October but was not able too

It was such a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the site and as we were by the river, wonderful to see the men fishing and the locks and the park was good

I would be recommend to my family and friends as I like it

A nice clean site

The shop was helpful too.

We bring our grandchildren with us next

Thank for a wonderful week

Reviewer: Freckles63 61 reviews from this member

 Great site, just back from couple of nights (frid/sat) with friends, they had pitch 23 ehu with tent and we had pitch 10 hard standing with caravan /ehu. £23 night with ehu

Easy to find off A10, only 45 minutes from home, we used our own showers but the showers by reception block had at least 10 in the ladies all looked very modern and clean with sanitisers outside all buildings. The toilet block in middle of field was clean and modern with sanitiser on outside wall again.

We took our bikes and had a cycle into Waltham Abbey along the canal towpath, stopping off at the white water centre for a coffee, and then back again along cycle route number one, nice circular route. This is a great site for cycling/running.

We visited the local pub on canal and only a short stroll across the road from site, The fish and eels, a vintage inn chain, only for drink, it was ok but staff not that friendly. Another nice looking pub on canal in other direction was The Crown, we didn't go in.

Must say thank you to Edna in reception, she was most helpful with the booking and phone calls and a small query whilst there. We booked online but phoned to sort pitches as with friends.

We will definitely be returning again, our friends enjoyed their stay just as much as us.

 Couldn't fault the site. Friendly Owners and Staff, hot, spotless clean showers and toilets, clean Elsan. Quiet location (even with it's proximity to an Industrial area) Some plane noise from nearby Stansted but not intrusive. Free WiFi. Small shop (we went in off season so imagine it's better stocked in peak) They are dog friendly (naturally on a lead on site) however nearby walks. Wide, mostly hard standing pitches with nearby water and hook up. Would certainly recommend and visit again. The nearby town is only a short drive away with the A10 and links to the M25 again a short drive away. We were down for visits to other areas so didn't stay on site much but nothing to do with the facilities. Mobile Signal is excellent and Wifi is free and good if basic. One small tip. Please note when filling water barrels that one tap is drinking and the other is not. There are signs denoting this but small.

 We stayed here in the safari tents. We were not able to get to the site by check in time so we phoned to check whether that was a problem - the reception assured us this would be ok - when we got there the gate was down and we could not get an answer on the office / emergency number (which was switched off). We eventually found the tent ourselves but it had not been 'made up' for the correct number of people. We got little by way of apology the next day - save for some inappropriate language in front of our children. The hob was difficult to use, the camping chair was broken and we also found some dirty laundry from previous residents in the tent. Also there was a substantial party taking place on the site. I heard someone else complaining about it and all the response was, 'Well, it'll be quieter tonight as they are leaving'. All this left a rather poor impression.

The site itself is fairly big. It's level. The facilities are OK - playground, warm showers, a couple of water taps, refuse, bike hire, etc. The shop is not great. There is a train line nearby - I am a light sleeper and I was not particularly disturbed by this. The area around the site is pretty good. We went to the park farms, which has a good slide, jumping, climbing area (8 and 11 year old) and walked along the river Lea; there is walking, fishing, biking. The safari tent itself was OK - as a real camper it felt like cheating and not great value for money. Perfect if you are new to camping or short of time though. These are quite big but not luxurious. It was really cold at night (like a normal tent) and as we had beautiful dry sunshine during the day the site was probably the best it could be.

 I stayed here with my three children over Easter. Great location with lots to do as a family. We specifically enjoyed the cycle routes and walks making use of the cafe half way round! The local pub is worth a visit serving great food.

We visited Lea Valley Farm which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Lots to do for the children.

The site is maintained to a high standard with the showers and toilets being immaculate

Staff were so friendly and helpful.

Will definitely be returning!

Reviewer: Watsit35 5 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for one night. No complaints at all. Staff were friendly and helpful. Site was immaculate. Didn't use showers but toilet block and elsan point were spotlessly clean. Lovely quiet site with lovely walks and very good pub over the road. Definitely would recommend this site and return.

Reviewer: Polly7705 5 reviews from this member

 Staff were very helpful. Good size pitch even in middle of busy season.

Toilets and showered were very clean.

Cafe and pub both within very close walking distance, both very dog friendly. Food in the pub 'The Fish and Eels' was excellent (so much so, that we ate there three evenings!).

Lots of lovely walks along the canals.

Don't be put off by the proximity to the industrial estate - you can't see it and we certainly weren't aware of it.

 Have visited before a couple of years ago and loved site. It is in a generally nice location although you need to ignore that it is fronted on two sides by a trading estate, but it is also on the canal, near a really nice café and pub, and has excellent clean facilities and nice staff. It is part of a large organisation and as such is subject to some rather daft, I think, rules ie if you have visitors they cannot sleep in awning, so be careful. We ended up booking another pitch for our guests with a small tent we happened to have with us. Also we had a couple of kayaks with us and these cannot be put in the water on the site (those rules again) and we were told to put them in across road, which we did although the sign there also said we couldn't. So be aware kayak owners. All that said yes it is a nice friendly site in a good location. Near town with nice restaurant. If you like a cake visit nonnas kitchen, although be aware you will put on a pound or two just walking in door. We will go back although this is not a cheap site.
