Why stay here ...

Abbey Wood Club site is currently undergoing exciting redevelopment to add additional all-weather pitches - some of which will be serviced - two new motorhome waste points and electric hook ups in the camping field. The site is open all year and will remain open during the works. Whilst these improvements take place there may be some noise from machinery. We'll make every effort to keep disruption to a minimum.

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 http://www.tfl.gov.uk/lezlondon for more information.

Unexpectedly peaceful site near London's heart.

Well run, clean and organised, good layout. This site is surprisingly tranquil considering its location, there are jumbo jets passing overhead but they are strangely unobtrusive and traffic noise is minimal. There is a flock of green parakeets in the surrounding mature trees to keep you amused - take binoculars. The location of Abbey Wood is near to the M25 and easy to get to. There is not much in Abbey Wood itself except a railway station, supermarket and a ruined abbey. Using the train to get about makes sense - trains run every 15 min. and take 20 min. to get to Greenwich (Greenwich market, Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark)for example. Visit Eltham Palace its a real gem. Pie and Mash(with optional eels and liquer) at Greenwich market. The Arts café near the Thames Barrier is well worth a visit for a bohemian vibe overlooking the river surrounded by small artisan and artist studios. Very enjoyable visit to the otherwise manic metropolis.

Should have stayed longer

We usually stay at Crystal Palace when visiting London but thought we'd try here instead. Beautiful peaceful site and not too far to drive from M25. Great train connections to city centre and lots of buses too although they take quite a long time. Really good for visiting Greenwich and we spent a few days there as there was so much to see and do. Highly recommend Viscount Sunday evening cruise. Must highly commend the staff at this site. So happy and friendly it made our visit a real pleasure.

Great location

We visited the site over easter half term, great site and i can pretty much agree with the many comprehensive reviews already listed so i won't rattle on!. This is about our 5th list to London and previously we had stayed at Crystal Palace, this being our first try at Abbey Wood. Both sites are great to the high club standard you would expect, so i will just list a few considerations for this against Crystal Palace. The access from the M25 motorway to Abbey Wood is excellent in comparison to Crystal Palace, I'm not saying Crystal Palace is horrific because its not, but Abbey Wood has a much better caravan friendly route from the motorway to the site and is much closer to the motorway network. The walk to Crystal Palace and Abbey Wood to the local train station is comparable, and both train routes and services are fantastic. Crystal Palace town itself is much better than Abbey Wood. I imagine most people will arrive at the site and like us, each day set off into the London Metropolis, however occasionally when at Crystal Palace we will take a walk around the town visit the shops, pubs and restraints which are all fine. This isn't really an option at Abbey Wood as there isn't much there save the station, a goos supermarket and a few local takeaways etc. Its still an OK place but CP can offer more.

A peaceful gem in the middle of suburbia

This was our first visit to Abbey Wood. Having used CMC sites before I was expecting the usual high standard for our Easter break. From arrival I was impressed. The wardens were friendly and helpful, they gave great advice about choosing a pitch. Great information about getting in to London, and various facilities on the site. We chose pitch 6 which was in the crescent part of the site facing the sun, if it had been present! It was a quiet part of the site given there was no thorough traffic and would definitely try to get in this area again. There would be more passing traffic if you were on the main drive, but to be honest given it's not a massive site there won't be that many cars etc going by. I couldn't believe how peaceful it was, birds singing, wind in the trees, all the more remarkable given it is surrounded by houses. The trees however give good camouflage. There was noise from the odd aeroplane, but they were few and far between. Facitiltes were good - clean and warm and numerous service points. Even though by the end of the week there were few empty pitches you didn't feel as though you were among a mass of people. The drainage was good and even though it rained every day there was no standing water anywhere on the site. The price was very good given we weren't far from London, and even the drive down from the North East of England was relatively straight forward. When we come the next time I wouldn't come off at the A223/A220 as the satnav suggested I'd continue on to A210 then danson road and Brampton road. Just be mindful that satnav will send you down knee hill to the site however at the crossroads there is a sign sending you to the left, this is a circuitous route which is fine given knee hill is steep, however at the roundabout from the B213 there is no sign telling you where to go, it was only the fact I knew we needed to come from knee hill that I spotted it to the right of the roundabout and knew where to go. This was nothing to do with the site however. Roll on our next visit, it's a no brainier for a visit to the capital.
