Arriving in horrendous weather conditions, notably a storm force wind and torrential rain, I checked in at reception and was offered a choice of where to pitch. My usual theory of “anywhere flat with hook up will do”. As the Kontiki is slightly oversized at 8.70 metres, I had made the booking with the site directly, with no issues either when booking or when pitching. Despite the very heavy rain, the gravelled hard stand pitch drained well. The weather was so bad, I pitched and put the kettle on, no hooking up just yet in this weather!
All the mod cons at the Camping and Caravanning Club Hertford…
- Two modern and heated amenity blocks with showers, wash basins and toilets. I like the ability to regulate the shower temperature rather than the preset type.
- Washing up area
- Chemical disposal point
- WiFi – chargeable
- Some recycling for rubbish
- Good sized play area
- Grass or hard stand pitched depending on the time of year
- Pitches without electric available
- Motorhome service point
- Storage and seasonal/part seasonal pitches available
With some 250 pitches, the Camping and Caravanning Club Hertford is one of the Club’s larger sites, yet, even on this fairly busy winter weekend, space was plentiful, and I would imagine when the site is full, there would not be a “crammed” feeling – there is space everywhere – and being surrounded by mature trees and conifers, the site almost has a feeling of a rural parkland. It’s great! Very peaceful and quiet too, despite being on the outskirts of London
Nearby Hertford town centre has a good selection of shops and a Tesco and Waitrose supermarket. This is all within walking distance of the site. Waltham Abbey, Knebworth House and the Paradise Wildlife Park are within easy reach. For those wishing to venture into London, this is easy. The closest rail station is Hertford East and operates direct services into London Liverpool Street. For a couple of pounds more, (£13.80 in total at today’s price) you can purchase an off peak return that also includes a one day travel card. Trains start early in the morning and run throughout the day, giving very easy access to London and it’s attractions.
The Camping and Caravanning Club Hertford is a good base for a day out to our capital.
