Why stay here ...
As the name suggests, Commons Wood Club Site backs onto delightful woodlands and is within reach of several beautiful parks. For those who fancy some excitement and limitless shopping options, the caravan park is only 30 minutes away from central London by a fast and frequent train service into King's Cross. Easy access to the city makes this Hertfordshire caravanning site an ideal base to visit any of London's popular exhibitions held at sites such as Olympia or Kew Gardens.
Commons Wood Club Site offers a wealth of options to keep everyone in the family happy. The lovely Stanborough Park is only about 2 miles away with a playground and crazy golf as well as a gorgeous lake where you can try your hand at boating and fishing. Reed Marsh Reserve - which is incorporated within Stanborough Park- is an ideal spot for bird watching. You can also explore several National Trust properties within the local area. The closest town to the caravan site is Welwyn Garden City, built soon after the First World War as part of the Ebenezer Howard's Garden City movement and one of the finest examples of modern town planning. Its rich history is evident in such artefacts as a Roman Bath preserved in a steel vault under the nearby A1.

Recently stayed on this site and before I go any further I w at to say that the wardens were exceptionally polite and lovely. However, apart from the hard standing pitches being a bit muddy ( time of the year I suppose), the problem was the long term workers that were going to work early in the morning, one person at 4.30am which was not great !!, we had some noisy generator or ac unit on a big RV making a continuous drone all night and the owner enjoyed starting up his american V8 truck and driving it over to the toilet block 20 yards away just so we all knew he had a big loud engine , maybe substituting / compensating for something else rather small that he had ?.. don’t know but extremely annoying. You also had long termers that had old Decrepit caravans and commercial vans, so were clearly pitched long term and although it’s sounds snobby, it lowered the quality of what is supposed to be a leisure site for leisure breaks ?... shame as the site is positioned well and lovely wardens but unfortunately they appear to have been hoodwinked into breaking the club rules by having these gypsy type people and long term residents that obviously live there and move for a day and return to flout the maximum stay rule.
