Why stay here ...

Abbey Wood Club Site is now fully open following exciting redevelopments. Additional all-weather pitches including some fully serviced pitches have been added, there's now two new-style open grate motorhome and campervan waste points, for easy drive-over waste disposal and no heavy drain cover to lift, and electric hook ups have been added in the camping field.

Abbey Wood Club Site feels positively rural when you reach this gently sloping verdant site. Its mature tree screening and spacious grounds make this a 'green oasis', with tent pitches and pods also available. This site's unique selling point is its location - there are shops and good railway connections, providing frequent services to central London in just 35 minutes, within walking distance of the caravan site. Alternatively, nearby Greenwich offers its own blend of fascinating attractions, including the famous observatory and National Maritime Museum.

River cruises operate from nearby Abbey Wood Club Site between Greenwich, Tower Bridge, Westminster, Kew, Richmond and Hampton Court. Open all year, this is a busy caravan site and is very popular with European visitors during the summer months. There are good reasons to visit Abbey Wood throughout the year though. The Christmas Lights, shopping at the January Sales, the London Marathon, Excel Centre and the Chelsea Flower show can all be enjoyed from this scenic, yet well placed, site.

 

Please note: this site is situated within the London Low Emission Zone. Visit the Transport for London website for more information.

Lovely oasis close to central London

Once onsite you would not know you were so close to London as it is so green and quiet. Yes there is some aircraft noise from City Airport but never bothered us. Abbey Wood station is very conveniently only 10 mins walk away. The facilities are kept very clean and tidy by an army of staff regularly working around the site and they are always extremely helpful. We visited for 9 nights in the middle of August. During this time it was a very busy site but the pitches are very defined so no issue there. If you get fed up with the City, Southend Pier and Ramsgate are a fair drive away but well worth the visit if you can.

Excellent location

I love everything about this place as it is so convenient for central London. It is only 10 minute walk if that to the train station and 25 minute journey to London Bridge to change for wherever you want to go in central London. The site is lovely as the trees make the place. You would never know you are in London as it is so quiet there. Admittedly it is very close to London Airport so there is aircraft noise starting early which doesn’t bother me but notice not so many flights over the weekend due to being closed for a short period. There is a Sainsburys next to the train station and saw lots of takeaways near the station so you won’t go hungry! Watch out for foxes and squirrels if you have awning up as they love to steal! Other than that all good and would highly recommend this place as this is somewhere I love to keep going back as already booked to go there for new year.

Great Site - Let down by some of it's visitors

This is our 2nd visit in as many months (June and July) since it is a convinient for visiting family nearby. Althought overall this is a great site and the Wardens are friendly and work hard to keep the place clean (this is obvious in the difference betweens the Wardens having just cleaned and later in the day) the latter visit was not as pleaseant as the first. For a start we found unflushed toilets, toilet paper all strewn across the floor in cubicles - I put this down to the number of Children on site this time round since I am convienced Adults would not act this way? I was also disappointed by the lack of respect for 'Pitch Privacy' - We were behind the Camping area and both Adults and Children from there seem to feel no compunction in walking across pitches to get to the Toliet Block etc including some who were so close to the Caravan they were actually looking in! Finally disappointed to find one of the Toilet Blocks still closed (the same one) so can only put this down to either a Money Saving or Labour saving Exercise and probably contributed to issues highlighted above? In addition the facilities in the other Toilet Blocks are somewhat dated and 'tired' As said friendly and hard working wardens and overall a pleasant site (which we will use again) but as stated before the site eally could do with both a facelift and perhaps a reminder of Pitch Etiquette to visitors.

Gem of a campsite

We stayed here for 3 nights before heading to Europe. The site is superb although getting there from the north via the A1/M11 was a little disconcerting due to the A12 and A2 skirting central London and via the Blackwall Tunnel. We had to cut our short our stay after 1 night but returned again for the 3rd night and this time came in via the M25 from Dartford - an easier route, but neither journeys take you within the London Congestion Charge area. You do need to check that your vehicle can be driven within the London Low Emission Zone though and this can easily be done online. The site itself is situated in mature woodland and pitches are located on different levels. It’s very peaceful and tranquil with plenty of wildlife (foxes, grey squirrels, bats etc) and an array of birds (including wild parakeets) to entertain you. Facilities are also excellent, very clean and the site is secure at night with locked gates. The wardens/staff were first class and thanks to the duty warden for letting us out the gates early to catch our Eurotunnel train. We’ll definitely be back to enjoy the site and explore London. There is a rail station about 10 mins walk away and a lovely woodland site for dog walking nearby 👍
