pleasant stay as a stopover

We stayed here for a couple of nights on our way further south - really convenient for the A1. It reminded me of CLs we used to stay on may years ago - a field that had been cut, with water & loo disposal. (grey water into the hedge) The site does have a slope & most pitching areas (lots of choice) will need levelling blocks. We were advised to pitch nose pointing down the slope (we are a motorhome) in case there was heavy rain. This was to reduce amount of manouvering in wet conditions. Whilst we were there it was dry and filed seemed well drained. There was plenty of room - far more spacious than your average Club site. 5 outfits on filed whilst we were there. The track from the road up to the CL field at the top is a bit rough in places, and a bit narrow through one or two old gateways. But mostly it is paved with paving slabs, so easier than on grass. There are some rundown outbuildings near the entrance, and there was some rubbish near the bins that needed clearing up. The site is run by two different people - and arrangements are a bit haphazard - but it works! And this is a CL, not a Club site. Really handy for St Albans - bus every 20 mins from near entrance - takes about 25 mins to get in to city - lots to see. We were there on a market day (Wednesday & Saturday, I think), which was great. A bit of non-intrusive aircraft noise - but otherwise really quiet.

Not Up to The Usual Standards

The site is well elevated above the surrounding St Albans greenbelt. Access to the A1 north is good but the A1 south access to London is messy. The field itself is a tight squeeze with five motorhomes/vans on site as the emptying point ,dustbins and water tap take up he whole of one corner. Upon arrival you are greeted with a message to call at the bungalow. The friendly host told us about all amenities and I paid him up front as we were only staying for the three nights. The access from the arrival point to the top field consists of going up a slabbed track which is narrow in places with many broken slabs causing pot holes. The access is very untidy with a few caravans not part of the CL. Not a great first impression. The host came over as we were leaving to say goodbye but I was not impressed when he made out that we had not yet paid him for our stay ! The whole experience is not what we would expect from a site appearing on the Motorhome and Caravan Club website.

perfect, just perfect!

If, like me, you travel a lot then you will appreciate that living in a caravan for one or two weeks at a time can be awful if the conditions are wrong, like noise, no electric hook-up and not too welcoming a host, well this is one of the best cl sites I have ever had the pleasure to stay at and I cannot understand the gripes that others have left. This is quiet, convenient, well kept and the people there are fantastic, accommodating and genuinely nice people. You should go nowhere else if you need to be near to St Albans.

A handy site to visit St. Albans

Directions to site easy to follow. Entrance OK, be very careful driving up the made up track it has broken slabs and a few pot holes. First expressions when driving onto site are what a mess, piles of rubbish and derelict sheds and greenhouses etc.One of our pet hates is the grass has been cut but not picked up, and it ends up in the caravan. A quite site. I have said this ever time NO NOTICE BOARD FOR EMERGENCY SERVICES. You can catch the bus to St Albans across the road to site every 20 minutes the other side to Hatfield,Welwyn garden City. We do feel that this site is not worth £14 a night.

Quiet and convenient

Very friendly reception which continued throughout our stay. Excellent location within very easy reach of A1M and M25 as well as St Albans city centre. Site is basic but has the required facilities and is very spacious and delighfully peaceful. Will have no hesitation in staying here again when next need access to London.
