Yet another fun packed weekend break away with the caravan

We spent most of this weekend kayaking up and down the River Thames, going through the locks was a bit of a hair raising experience, but still great fun

As usual, I can't fault Sylvia and the rest of the gang who look after the running of this site.

Not long until we will be popping in on an overnight stay on our journey back from Wiltshire.

Every time we stay, no matter how long or short it is we have a great time

Starting to feel like our second home now, always great to see the usual friendly faces

Three showers in the ladies and loads of toilets and wash basins - there is an hour during the day when they are closed for cleaning (pretty much the norm with all sites)

Chemical waste area - washing up area - washing machines - all kept clean and tidy

There is a small playground area for the children, which seems to be very popular (our children are all grown up now so unable to let you know what the children think) always little ones playing there and making good use of the newly updated sand pit area

We have never had a bad experience here and have always been made to feel very welcome. Always someone about to give you a helping hand

Will be back very soon

Have now lost count how many times we have stayed on this site - we love it

If you are after a relaxing chill out break we find this ideal for us

Perfect for walking or cycling along the Thames or just sitting by the caravan and watch the boats sail by.

Plenty of wildlife around by the side of the Thames or on the Park - on this stay we had the pleasure of feeding the swans, ducks, canadian geese and a pair of Egyptian Geese and their fluffy babies

There are lots of pubs within easy walking distance of the campsite and I believe we have tried most of them now

Cycling into Staines is about a 30 minute amble taking in the sites as you go - plenty of cycle parking areas when you get there to lock your bikes up

Doesn't matter which way you walk up or down the Thames both ways you come to a lock where you can watch the boats and the locks being operated

We find the shower and toilet blocks to be ample for our needs - plenty of toilets and hand basins and three showers of a good size. The showers are push buttons ones to help save water

We have always found it to be a friendly site and not experienced any problems on any of our visits

Sylvia is a true gem that always makes us feel welcome each time we stay - all of the wardens/staff on site are friendly and there to help and make your stay a good one

As with all sites there are rules, such as cars are to be parked in a separate car park to the caravans and tents and no cycling on the site - it is obvious that these rules are due to the size of the site and the amount of caravans and tents around they are Health and Safety Rules - neither or these have proved a problem for us

There is an inside washing up area that also includes washing machines and tumble dryers. We've never had the need to use them

There is also a toilet waste area and many large wheelie bins for your rubbish

If you are after a local butchers we found a good one in nearby Shepperton while on one of our cycling trips of the area

There is a supermarket close by which we tend to do a trip to once we have set the van up on site

We will be back again for sure, in fact, our next visit will be in May in a few weeks time

A massive great big thank you to Sylvia and the rest of the crew for another great time - totally chilled out and back to work now, but looking forward to our next outing already

We booked this campsite on the strength of its website pics and its proximity to Hampton Court Palace. It cost us 52 for two nights. Directions were good and it was easy to find. Wardens were very helpful and friendly on the telephone. The actuality was quite different. Site is unkempt, washrooms dirty and bin area disgusting. No recycling of waste, no recycling at all that I could see. Rules for tourers yes, rules for members no. The wardens were friendly and it was ideally situated for our purpose but I wouldn't return. It is as somebody else mentioned far too reminiscent of Hi De Hi with facilities still stuck in that era too. Oh, and did I mention the dog poo? This is essentially a private camping club that opens its many gates to tourers to maintain a certain level of income but it is not a touring site as we know them. Wish we had paid the extra to use the nearby Caravan and Camping site.

Lovely setting beside the Thames, we only stayed for one night for a short break. The site was a bit noisy until 10. 30pm, which was a bit irritating. There's a nice pub 10 minutes walk away, which seemed to concentrate more on the diners, and a small shop.

Could do with a little shop on site, even if it's only the basics. Once pitched, we had to park our car in the car park, which was a little inconvenient. Having said that, Sylvia gave us a good welcome, and scooted round the park on her buggy to show us our pitch.

We'll be back- but will stock up on supplies before we arrive.

Have just come back from staying at this site. We booked it a few months ago and was told to be there for 7. 30 pm and if we were going to be late to ring and let them know. So we did and got a very frosty reply saying that we would have to pay her overtime! She then back tracked when I argued this. We arrived at 8. 30 pm and immediately were told off for speeding, we were only doing 8mph! Was directed to pitch and then was told all the site rules. No cycling on site, no ball games apart from in the adjacent park. No noise after 11pm which is normal but the worst one was that you couldn't park your car next to your tent. You had to park it in their car park which had no proper security. In all the years I have been camping I have never had to do this and really not happy about it.

Showers, clean but a pain to use. You had to hold the button ALL the time to use it, a bit useless when trying to wash yourself. Toilets, clean. Good park on site for kids and a bigger one in ajacent park. On the Sunday they had a volleyball game and then awards for it with someone shouting over a tannoy, annoying when you go away to relax! It all seemed to remind us of the old programme ' Hi - de - Hi' The site is more geared towards regular people that go there all the time and us tourers we there to make up the numbers. We will not be returning here again.

What a fantastic experience and made to feel totally welcome from the owner - so glad that we chose this site for our weekend by the Thames.

We had car trouble on the way to the site but managed to get there only a little later than expected. We found the warden straight away and checked in with no problems, explained to her that we had car trouble and may need to be recovered if the car couldn't be fixed, but still wanted to stay for the weekend. We pitched up and settled in within an hour or so. We were very lucky and got a pitch where we could open the curtains in the morning and sit and watch the boats sail by. Very relaxing indeed

Being without transport for the weekend proved no problem at all as we were quite happy to use our legs and go exploring along the river. Much to see and many pubs/restaurants on the way. Site is situated in the middle of two locks

If you are keen at fishing and have the correct licence then you will love this as there are many places along the river to sit and fish for hours on end

Children and adults can learn how to canoe on the river - classes were held on site (new this year) which did prove very popular and you need to get there by 9am to make sure you get a canoe.

Site is not far from Thorpe Park or Chessington so, so long as you have the transport then they are great places to entertain children.

Toilet/shower block is in the middle of the field along with play area for the under 12's with permanent large tents all around it - the outside edge of the field is used for the tourers/electric hook ups.

We found the toilets and shower blocks to be kept clean and were surprised on how large each shower cubicle was - there are only three showers for each sex, but we never found this a problem as we are early risers, so tended to be the first in there

The on site warden can always be seen whizzing about in her little cart on hand to deal with any problems (not that we had any)

There are rules on the campsite, which are only to be expected - there is no cycling on the campsite at all, but to be fare with the amount of tents and guy ropes about it wouldn't be a good idea anyway. You only have to push your bike out of the grounds and you are off! Plenty of safe cycling away from the main roads

Cars are not allowed be be kept next to your caravan, which we have not been used to, but didn't find to be a problem as they provide a safe carpark at the end of the field that is fenced in and is only for people using the site.

At the end of our weekend we did have to get the car recovered as it could not be fixed without going into a garage - the warden was a great help with this and was a real trouper - even with no transport we had a most enjoyable weekend and are going back again for another weekend this month once the car is fixed so we can explore further afield.

We were very surprised to see some recent negative reviews on this site as we had such a great time - holidays are what you make them and it goes to show that if we still managed to have a fantastic relaxing weekend with the troubles we had then it can't possibly be all that bad - we are saving this site as one that will become a regular one for our travels

We thank everyone at Laleham for making our break so enjoyable - you all do a great job and we will see you all again soon
