Radwell Lake campsite

We run a simple and rural camp site which appeals to those who like camping in the old fashioned sense. We offer a pleasant grassy site, clean toilets, and you can choose your own pitch. We have a limited number of electric hook ups and no hot water.

We welcome tents, touring caravans and motor-caravans.

The field

Bordered by a wood, a stream and a meadow which is cropped for hay and sometimes contains grazing sheep.


We love tents and caravans

The orchard

This is not always available since it is a rally site and we have rallies most summer weekends. Judging by the repeat bookings, we are a popular venue.
Family icon


We very much enjoy welcoming family parties and seeing the children wading in the streams, running about and generally having a good time.

Fire icon


We welcome well behaved and controlled dogs on the site and have direct access to an extensive network of puplic footpaths to walk them.

Ball icon

Ball games

We do not object to ball games, so long as it does not interfere with other campers.

Barbecues off the ground are allowed, but not campfires as they scar the grass making it unpleasant for those following.

We do have a chemical toilet disposal point, but we do not have rubbish facilities; you are requested to take all your rubbish home with you and recycle it appropriately.

Nearby attractions

Radwell Mill lake

The ducks and geese on our lake must be the best fed anywhere! For those who enjoy birdlife, there are many varieties. It does not take long for the ducks to discover that the campsite can be a fertile source of food, and they are often to be seen quacking around the campers. Muntjac deer are sometimes to be seen.

Radwell Church

We are fortunate to have a beautiful little Church, All Saints, in the village. It is always open for visits and contains several 17th Century memorials and early brasses of distinction. A booklet giving the history of the Church is available for £1.


A public footpath runs right through the campsite which is part of the Kingisher Way which follows the course of the River Ivel for 20 miles from its source at Ivel Springs near Baldock to where it meets the River Great Ouse. One field to the south you join the the Garden City Greenway, a 13.6 mile circular path and cycleway around the World's first Garden city.


From about May to September there are delicious homemade teas to be had in the Village Hall on Sunday afternoons.


There is a motorway service area within 1/2 mile with a Marks and Spencer, McDonalds, KFC, Starbucks and hot showers.

Stotfold Mill

The next mill down the river Ivel from Radwell is Stotfold Mill, a flourishing working museum and nature reserve. There is some evidence the water wheel you can see working there was salvaged from Radwell Mill when it was decommissioned in about 1905. Tripadvisor.co.uk reviews
