Another excellent visit for us to this fantastic caravan and campsite in Hurley. We used our bikes this time around to ride to Henley and back along the Thames Path and also to Marlow in the other direction, finding a few Geocaches on the way. We stayed on a premium pitch which includes water and waste area for water. As usual the grass was kept in outstanding condition and the amount of space that you get in the middle of the field is fantastic - unlike at many sites where it's a pack them in policy in rows. Here they are happy for you to pitch your caravan in any direction you prefer. The only negative of the pitch this year is that they have installed hard standing pitches for the premium pitches and the stones used are sharp, uneven and loose meaning that the awning floor is uncomfortable. The assistant wardens were very aware of this and they are passing on our suggestion that it is relaid. The toilet blocks are still excellent although they could do with a little bit of maintenance such as tightening up toilet seats etc before things become more of a problem. The setting on the River Thames is amazing and being able to take our inflatable canoe out within yards of our pitch was great fun. I noticed a review which mentioned problems with noise - it's worth noting that the leaflet you get when you arrive includes an emergency number for the wardens and I'm sure they would sort out problems like this. We too like the fact that music and radios are not allowed at this site meaning that we don't have to listen to other people's choice of music. It's also great for the kids because they can cycle around and play in all the open space that is provided, although a playground would give a 10 out of 10 rating for child friendliness. We will be returning to this superb site, which although expensive, is worth it for the superb location.
