General

  • Award-winning park on the Thames
  • On-site fishing in season and bits and bobs to entertain the kids
  • Block out some time to visit Legoland Windsor (11 miles)

We’ll take a piece of this, please: Hurley Riverside Park near Maidenhead in Berkshire is a playful 11 miles from Legoland Windsor and has discounted tickets for it available at reception – plus over 20 other local attractions from the Hellfire Caves to Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital; you’ll not want to leg-o when it’s time to leave…

If you’re angling for activities in the area that are even cheaper/free, there’s on-site fishing in season, the new Trim Trail playground and a nature trail with free quiz leaflet for littlies – there are plenty of locals to spot in the park’s trees, hedgerows and nesting boxes.

Hurley Riverside Park is on the Thames for walks along the Thames Path, in the Thames valley and to the nearby riverside towns of Henley-on-Thames and Marlow – pick up a footpath map from the Hurley shop for info on all the local hikes and nature reserves.

This award-winning park was placed in the Top 100 sites in the UK by Practical Caravan and its facilities are expertly put together, with several little touches built in to make guests feel at home: free showers including family shower rooms, disabled wet room, free use of hairdryers/shaver points, and a book swap area in the launderette block.

There’s even a slipway if you’re lucky enough to be arriving by boat like locals Ratty and Mole…

Pitches at Hurley Riverside Park are for tents, tourers and motorhomes, with electric hook-up available on some. Wifi is available for an extra charge.

Great site with average facilities, shockingly poor customer service. 19/06/2017

    Beautiful site with average facilities and access to the river.

    Disliked: 

    Overzealous park wardens who have no common sense or sensitivity, and who on this occasion simply lied to us.

    Having been allocated a camping pitch and pitched our campervan and awning during the afternoon, the warden rode past at 7:15 in the evening as we sat eating our tea and said that our awning was actually a tent - even though it is/was physically attached to our camper using a sun canopy - and that tents were not allowed in this field (this is not mentioned on their website or any of the provided paperwork and it was the park who allocated us this pitch). We asked if we could move to a different field and were told there was no space - this was a lie, we had walked round the site earlier and it was a barely half full, with whole fields still empty.

    This was all done in full view and earshot of our children who then got upset. Without the tent there is no-where for us all to sleep so we had no choice but to packup and leave. We asked if we could get a refund and were told "yes, if you go to the office before they close at 8pm".

    We packed up and went the office, whereupon we were told that they couldn't provide a refund as the person who deals with then wasn't in. We were then offered 2 pitches in a different field at twice the cost - so they did have space!!!

    We left and will never go back after being treated so terribly. We did eventually get the refund, several days later after chasing them, but not even the slightest hint of an apology. Absolutely shocking.

From the manager...

We are sorry you were not happy with your stay in Hurley. As explained at the time and as you mention in your review the second unit on your pitch was a tent and our site licence does not allow tents in Ash. The tent was also going to be used for sleeping and unfortunately we were unable to allow you to keep it on the pitch.

You were offered two pitches in Chestnut but our wardens have said you understandably didn’t want to pay for a second pitch for your tent as this would make your stay twice as expensive.

We are sorry that you were not refunded on the same day. Our reception closes at 8pm but we will to look into why this was not done straight away, however I understand you were refunded soon after.

Our park rules do state that only one unit can be on each pitch however we have taken your comments on board and will make the information regarding our site license restrictions in Ash more visible to prevent this happening again.

We are sorry that you were unable to stay with us, but hope that you will return to visit us in the future.

Directions


From the A4 and M4 at Maidenhead:
Leave the M4 at Junction 8/9 (Maidenhead) and take the A404(M). Take the third exit (approximately 2 miles) onto the A4130 signposted Henley. At the top of the slip road turn left and go straight across the Burchetts Green roundabout. You will pass Temple Golf Club on your right as the road begins to wind down the hill towards Hurley. Follow the brown caravan park signs, ignoring the turning into Hurley Village at East Arms Place, and continue along the A4130 for a further three-quarters of a mile, turning right into Shepherds Lane. At the sharp right-hand bend go straight on through the wood. At the crossroads proceed straight across into the touring park, reporting to the warden at reception.

From the M40 at High Wycombe:
Leave the M40 at Junction 4 (Handy Cross) and take the A404(M). After the roundabout take the slip-road to the A4130 signposted Henley turning right at the Burchetts Green roundabout and proceeding as above.

From Henley-on-Thames:
Take the A4130 towards Maidenhead for 5 miles. Approximately half a mile past the Black Boys, turn left into Shepherd's Lane and proceed as above.

Local attractions

Stick to the Thames and its riverside towns, take the kids to as many nearby attractions as they can wheedle you to, or take a day trip to Oxford, London or Reading…all are smooth sailing from here.

Walkswise, leave the park and follow your feet along the Thames Path, go up the side of the Thames Valley for views over Berkshire from Ashley Hill Forest, or have an easy stroll along the Jubilee River between Windsor and Maidenhead.

The Oxfordshire Way ends in Henley and goes through the Cotswold Hills and the Chilterns Hills; trace its route back towards Gloucestershire with doable walks from Henley to Middle Assendon, or on from there to Pishill and Christmas Common.

The beech forest surrounding Christmas Common is a good spot for biking; free wheelers can also pedal their way along the long-distance Chilterns Cycleway, which has an 18-mile loop from Henley through the Hambleden Valley.

Or take to the water instead – you can’t stay in a park with ‘Riverside’ in the name without even a smidgeon of messing about in boats…

There are boats for hire all around Henley, from yachts to traditional rowing boats, and if you’re new to oars the experts at Henley Rowing Club offer classes for beginners.

See how Ratty, Mole et al did it at the permanent Wind in the Willows exhibition at Henley’s award-winning River and Rowing Museum, also the place to find out about Henley’s world-famous regatta and the history of boats and boating on the Thames.

Traditionalists might also like a look around Windsor and Eton; the old buildings through all ages at the Chiltern Open Air Museum or puffing along at the foot of the along the foot of the Chiltern Hills on the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway.

Pick up discounted tickets for the above three attractions at the Hurley Riverside Park reception; discounted tickets are also available for:
