California Chalet and Touring Park: Adjacent lake

General

  • Peaceful woodland park 10 minutes' drive from Wokingham centre
  • An hour's drive from Oxford, the New Forest and the south coast
  • Next door to a lake and country park for fishing and walks

Settle in for a stay at Wokingham’s California Chalet and Touring Park and you’ll be in good historical company: the park’s location was once part of Windsor Forest and a fave hunting ground of the Tudor royals.

These days the five-acre site has been set up as a peaceful woodland park, with heaps of space for a quiet family break. Hunting is long gone, but neighbouring Longmoor Lake is a fab place for a spot of fishing: carp, pike, tench, roach and perch are up for grabs if you’ve got the relevant rod licence.

Also just next door is California Country Park, a 100-acre park with wildlife trails, a playground, picnic areas, paddling pool and a cosy café for daytime eats. For further foodie needs, a pub, chip shop and supermarket are a five-minute drive away.

If you’re looking to venture a little further afield, Wokingham’s well placed for exploring the attractions of Berkshire and beyond – with a drive of an hour or so you can be wandering around Oxford, spotting ponies in the New Forest or taking in the sea air on the south coast.

Facilities on site are kept minimal to preserve the peaceful vibe, but all the essentials are in place: a laundry room (with clothes drying area), an outdoor washing-up area and a well-appointed toilet block with accessible facilities, hot showers and useful bits and bobs like razor points. Staff make a point of keeping an eye on this last to make sure it's always in fine fettle for guests.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

A lovely little peaceful gem nestling in the heart of suburbia09/13/2021

  • Liked: 

    Arrived here for 1 night primarily as we have just converted from full on campers to motorhome newbies and wanted a first night testing ground nearby.

    Well, we could not have asked for a better place to start out on our motorhoming future, we arrived after the office was closed, and true to their word, our pitch details and access codes where right where they promised.

    The site was smaller than we would normally go to, but do not let this concern you as its well laid out. All the pitches are clearly marked and clean, and the facilities are very clean and regularly services throughout the day.

    As for the location, the biggest surprise is the utter transformation from suburbia to peaceful rural retreat literally in the length of their drive. The site is child friendly and you really should keep to the site speed limit as there were plenty around at the time of our visit.

    We drove onto the pitch easily, hooked up the services and settled in to enjoy the tranquillity.

    There are walks and a lake on site with fishing permitted (thats on the plan for the next visit) as long as you have the correct licences.

    Overall for our first time out in the Motorhome this little gem of a site will certainly go into the log book as one to return to regularly.

    Well organised site, pitches a good size, surroundings rural and beautiful. Lakes and lots of wooded areas for walking. Shower blocks well kept, clean. Helpful and friendly reception staff.

    Disliked: 

    Wfi not and miss despite paying for it. Constant mowing of grass areas, although not sure when they could do this. Blowers used for blowing leaf's,not good when sitting outside your van and get covered in leaf's and grit.

    Disliked: 

    Wasn't informed of local road closure, diversion signs rubbish. My wife asked why we had not been told and got a very snotty response from the man in reception. Took extra hour to get to the site. Music blaring from vans until late, lots of 6am shouting between vans. Dirty shower block.
    Would never go back.

Local attractions

There’s plenty of scope for fresh air in California Country Park (right next to the site), but if you fancy stretching your legs a little more, you’ve got plenty of choice: the South Downs National Park, New Forest and the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are all within an hour’s drive for scenic walks and bike rides. Golfers can pick from three courses within a 15-minute drive.

On fine days, take the kids to meet the friendly animals at Lockey Farm, 10 minutes away. For less clement days, the Museum of Berkshire Aviation, Skiplex Indoor Ski Slopes, Coral Reef waterpark and Gravity Force trampoline park are all about a 20-minute drive away.

For a bit of culture and history, it’s half an hour or so to drive to Windsor Castle, or around an hour to Oxford for wanders around the university’s colleges and punting along the river.

Must see

  • The Look Out Discovery Centre (5.6 miles)
  • LEGOLAND® Windsor (10.9 miles)
  • Windsor Great Park (11.6 miles)
