A Gem of Tranquility

What a lovely little site! Set in a busy part of London, nestling in woodland right beneath the massive BBC mast, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in a rural part of Dorset. I was originally booked in for two nights but liked it so much that I stayed for a further night and would have stayed longer if I could. The facilities are excellent and it must be one of the quietest sites I have ever stayed on with no intrusion form London traffic. Of course location is key and here it scores highly on all fronts. The Crystal Palace Park is excellent, albeit rather busy when I was there thanks to the late September heatwave and there is no end of cycling and even walking opportunities. The lovely Dulwich Village is only about 2 miles away and there is an excellent park there. I didn’t use any public transport but I understand that a bus goes from just outside the camp all the way to the centre of London. The only slight downside of the site, which is not the fault of the site owners is that access is a little tricky, towing a caravan through busy London streets being a bit daunting. I had a much better return journey though, as I ignored Google’s attempts to save journey time by using side streets (invariably having enormous road humps and 20 mph speed limits) and kept to main roads a safer as possible. The icing on the cake is that the site fees are extremely reasonable. I only paid £16 a night which must make it the cheapest overnight accommodation anywhere in London!
