The snag with sites close to home is that I rarely visit them. With much of my time spent in France and Germany all too often I am driving past local sites and not actually visiting them.

But this week I have been at the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s Commons Wood site near Welwyn Garden City and it turns out to be an attractive oasis of calm not far from the madness of the M25, A1M, Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City. Really quiet and peaceful it has just 68 pitches spread over six acres so quite small and intimate and, as you would expect, beautifully maintained by the wardens with excellent facilities. 

And a five minute taxi ride will take you to the station and forty five minutes later you are at Kings Cross if peace and quiet is not you scene.

So it’s quite a find and reminds me once again not to drive past local sites!
