Top site for dogs
A spacious, quiet campsite by the county town of Hertford that you can enjoy all year round.
Our Hertford Club campsite is on the outskirts of the attractive market town of the same name and surrounded by rolling countryside.
This campsite, although large is spacious with some 250 pitches, offers many quiet and secluded pitches and there are lots of separate areas to choose from. The site is well laid out with well- maintained facilities including washing machine and dryers, inside dish washing area, an outdoor play area and dog walk.
There is a separate tent area with a facility block close at hand. The whole site is plentifully supplied with trees, hedges and shrubs and there is an attractive lake too.
It’s an easy walk into Hertford with its town square and River Lea towpath walk. And Balls Park close by is excellent for dog-walks.
The Cole Green Way, part of the National Cycle Network, is about 1.5 miles from the campsite, starting at Hertford Football Club it follows a former railway to Welwyn Garden City. There are more recreational options at Hartham Common, just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre.
For days out there’s Paradise Wildlife Park, Knebworth House and Waltham Abbey or you can take a train to London from Hertford East which is a 20-minute walk from the campsite.
Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Enjoyed a two night weekend break here.
A large, well kept site, though shower blocks a little tired they are peacefulclean, warm and tidy so not a big problem. Staff were very polite and helpful.
Balls park is very close through gate at the rear of the site which was good for walking the dog.
A 30 minute walk takes you into the lovely town of Hertford, with plenty of shops, cafes, pubs, a river walk and another very large park.
There is plenty to see and do in and around Hertford and we will return to this site.

We have been coming here now for 3 years - can't see that any upgrades have taken place during this time. The shower block now very tired - lovely hot water and fairly clean but desperately needs updating. Welcome was a little tepid - staff not as friendly as before - maybe something to go with the weather!

This was our second trip away in our motor home and we couldn't have chosen a better site. There are great walks in and around Hartford and dogs are made welcome. Ware is only a 40 minute walk along the canal. We hope to return in April to explore the area more.

Chemical emptying point in open toilet block broken so have to use the one in the closed block at the opposite end of the site to where everybody is sited.
No heating in toilet block - again broken - freezing temperatures mean visiting the facilities was like an antarctic expedition.
WiFi signal very poor - why do we have to pay for a signal so bad that even emails don't load?
A number of long-term residents on site, and even some long terms ones with a number of school age children who spend all day riding around other pitches on bikes, even during the week in term time. I know the club would loose revenue, but what happened to the rules that state you can only stay for a limited time? The managers had a number of complaints about this, but they have little control over it.
The managers are trying to improve the site, but it is so run down they don't know where to start. Unfortunately this once lovely site is in such a state of disrepair that it would be difficult to recommend it at present
