Radwell is situated on a side road off the A507 between Baldock and Junction 10 of the A1(M).

Exit A1(M) at Junction 10 and take the A507 in the direction of Baldock. We love tents and caravansGo past the motorway services, after about 1/4 mile there is a road sign to Radwell Only and a camping sign.

Turn right, down Radwell Lane through the village down to the lake and ducks at the bottom.

The postcode SG7 5ES in your satnav will bring you to the same place.

Continue for another 100 yards to the campsite, turn right, shortly after you've past the pink cottages there's a parking place on the right hand side.

Take the train to Baldock (It's about 35 min from London Kings Cross)

Either call us with your arrival time and we'll collect you from the station, or you can walk (about 20 min).

There are a few buses which stop at the top of Radwell lane, though none are very frequent.

There are plenty of buses which stop in Baldock, and if you're coming from Heathrow or Luton airports this is a good way to get here. The National Express 787 bus goes between Cambridge, Baldock, Luton and Heathrow in both directions every 2 hours. Unfortunately the very convenient 700 bus between Baldock and Stansted airport is currently not operating and probably the best way is by train via Cambridge.

If you get a bus to Baldock, either call us with your arrival time and we'll collect you, or you can walk (about 20 min).

If you're coming to Radwell from an international airport then train or bus are easy options.

You are welcome to land your microlight on our airstrip, however, at 220m with trees at the end it is quite short and generally considered something of an 'advanced' strip to attempt to land at.

An alternative is to land at Newnham a couple of miles away and we'll come and pick you up.

Please call us first if you are planning to do this.

We're about a 20 minute walk from Baldock. From the traffic lights follow North Road over the hill until you get to Radwell Lane on the left.

Walk down Radwell lane to the ducks, continue for another 100 yards to the campsite, turn right, shortly after you've past the pink cottages there's a turn-in on the right hand side.

A more scenic route from Baldock to Radwell is by footpath across country following the first part of the Kingfisher way, which if you continued, would take you all the way to the Ouse at Roxton Lock.

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.

Footpaths

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.

Teas

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

Shops

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
