- 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.
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.

Great site with average facilities, shockingly poor customer service. 19th June 2017
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.
Lovely site, great location 4th October 2016
From the manager...
Thanks for your feedback Heidi. Could you contact us regarding your key fob as we dont take a deposit for this. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon
Rude, ignorant and bias staff, ZERO STARS. 3rd October 2016
From the manager...
Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry the park was not suitable for you.
We received a number of complaints about your group on the night and several the following morning from other campers located around the park as unfortunately due to the volume of your conversations you were heard from quite far away and late into the night.
We are unable to comment on the conversations you had with another family, however their version of events is very different. Our security warden was called several times with complaints about excessive noise, bad language and a dog being allowed to roam around not under control. On each visit an increasing number of beer cans were littered around your tent and your group was reminded of our park rules each time.
Due to our wardens repeated requests to moderate your language and abide by our quiet park policy going unheeded your group was asked to leave the following morning. Our wardens reported that while a member of your group was checking out another member sat in their car with their hand on the horn for several minutes. A member of the public called the police as they believed the driver was still under the influence of alcohol and was concerned for other road users.
Our rules are in place to ensure all of our customers enjoy their holiday and it is not spoilt by a small minority and we are sorry that our park was not suitable for you.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
