Hi, Can anyone recommend a campsite around Windsor, maybe within a 30 minute drive (although not towards London)? We have booked to take the kids to Legoland and nothing is jumping out. Ideally after something quiet but OK for kids.

Thanks

Try Swiss farm nearly Henley
outdoor pool, close to Windsor etc.
easy walk to Henley on Thames town centre.

Normally gets book up early but may be worth a call In case of cancellation etc.

We've had a lovely weekend at Hurley too. Direct access to the river for swimming or messing around on boats.

Agree. Love Chertsey. Nice walk along the river too to Shepperton lock.

A great suggestion. Decent cafe there too.

Make sure you have a spare safe fitted, it’s the no1 hotspot for having your spare pinched.

Many thanks all. We were torn between the Hurley Riverside and the Swiss Farm and have decided to go for the Swiss Farm, both look fantastic though.

Good decision. We have a place in Henley so know the town well. Swiss Farm is an excellent site, try and get a pitch towards the back on the upper terraces if you can.

Please just be aware that Legoland is a hotspot for thefts from vehicles, particularly spare wheels and tech equipment left on display. Every week in summer our local crime report email lists some sort of theft.:mad:

I don't have anything to protect the spare wheel, but it is just a scabby looking steel, so hopefully of no value (touches wood).

We will be loaded with camping gear, which is a worry, but aside from putting electronics like the GPS etc out of view there isn't much we do unfortunately. We've not been before but I'll try to park in as prominent place as possible as a deterent.

You could always book a taxi from Swiss Farm. Wouldn’t have to pack everything up either.

The spaces are mostly in rows of 2, so if you reverse in and back up close to the vehicle behind you will probably be much safer, particularly spare wheel and stuff in the back.

Try to park with the rear overhang over a kerb. Makes getting the spare out difficult.

We have paid for the premium parking, so hoping that includes some better security.. tip for parking over the kerb is a good call thanks.
