Spent 6 nights here last week in our motorhome. This is the second time we have been here, the previous time was August for the Olympics and we found it fantastic both times.
Relatively easy to find and negotiate in a large vehicle. When you arrive on the site it seems almost rural, lots of trees and greenery (even in the winter) You wouldn't really know how close you were to London.
My daughter was working in the West End for a few days so we went in on the train with her every day. Its just a 10 min walk to the station and a 40 min direct train to Charing Cross - we walked up to Leicester Square from there in around 10 mins rather than bothering with the underground.
The surrounding area, particularly the area on the way to the station looks a bit dodgy if I'm honest but even when we got back really late there were no safety issues and we were happy to walk back to the site.
The site itself is beautifully laid out with large pitches and spotlessly clean toilet blocks and showers.
The wardens are friendly and helpfull and a mine of information about cheap restaurants in the city etc.
Didnt eat at the take aways or the Indian Restaurant in Abbey Wood itself - didnt really like the look of them but there are a couple of other shops where you can pick up bits and pieces on the way to the station.
Overall we love this site and will definitely go back - well done The Caravan Club!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Abbey Wood Caravan Club Site is a Caravan Club Golden Jubilee Site and feels positively rural when you reach this gently sloping verdant site. Its mature tree screening and spacious grounds making it a secure site. Good railway connections are within walking distance of the caravan site and will get you into Central London in just 35 minutes. Alternatively, nearby Greenwich offers its own blend of fascinating attractions, including the famous observatory. River cruises operate from nearby Abbey Wood Caravan 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. ... more less
