We have returned from our second visit to the site and it was just as good as the first one. The owners are very friendly and keep the site immaculately clean. Though there is no club house or swimming pool, our eight year old rates it as one of his favourite sites - and so do we!
The location is good for Legoland and Windsor, and the motorway didn't bother us (despite the fact that we live in a rural town and are not used to much noise).
The path along the river is lovely, if only to stroll along and look at the houses of very wealthy people! A note about the car boot sale held close to the site - it is expensive to get in at 2 per person!

Wonderful campsite with friendly and helpful owners! 2 min walk from the river, weir and lock. Modern and clean shower block! We have been here at least 8 times in the past 3 years and always had a great experience. We have been to about 6 other campsites of various sizes and this one is one of our favourites. Children always meet new friends and play on the small park area together. Also, excellent value for money.

You may read in other reviews that it's near the motorway so you get traffic noise. You can hear the road and this would usually really bother me but because the noise is constant (more like having a hairdryer on a low setting)you get used to it and it doesn't affect us.

Sainsburys just up the road and Legoland 25mins away. We will be using this campsite for many year to come!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay here with our 2 children. It was the perfect base for a surprise trip to Legoland. We also enjoyed a lovely walk down the bank of the river Thames.

Toilets and shower block were very clean with plenty of hot water. Also free use of a microwave (handy when you arrive back late from a full day at Legoland!)

The play area was a fab way for the boys to amuse themselves while we put the tent up.

People have mentioned about the noise from the M4 although neither us nor the children found this a problem and were situated at the motorway end of the site.

A gem of a site - I just hope there is space when we want to visit again!

WOW! What a lovely little site, ideal for weekends. Such friendly site owners, facilities are absolutely great, spotlessly clean. They have a summerhouse with microwave, fridge, freezer and ironing board (iron available at reception) for use by campers. Big showers. Vending machine whose prices don't rip you off. Picnic tables / benches dotted around. Usual dishwashing facilities with bowls and wash liquid.

Level pitches in a lovely old orchard. Owners gave us a big bag of cooking apples and the recipe for Apple Crumble!

The 3minute walk to the Thames was lovely down a little lane with a large field to one side. Bray Lock is really picturesque, our little one loved watching the night disco boats go through the lock (midnight walk at 8.30am,she loved it)!

Sainsburys close by for the essentials instead of trying to fit them all in the boot.

Windsor/Windsor Castle a few minutes in the car, where you can have a great day by the river or on it.

Will definitely use this site again when we want a weekend break last minute.

Yes, there is a definite drone of traffic from the M4 (I think) but you do get used to it, becomes dull background noise.

The small children's playground is nice and well maintained.

All in all a brill little site, well worth a visit.

My family and I went to this campsite so that we could visit Legoland Windsor as it is only seven miles away, but we did not go as the campervan broke down and had to be towed to the garage - we left the tickets in the glovebox!

The owners and support staff were extremely helpful - they even lent us a spare tent!

The facilities were great - there is a fridge, freezer, washing up facilities, tumble dryer and a microwave. There is a vending machine by the washing up sinks selling crisps, chocolate, sweets and drinks.

The toilet block was very clean and the free showers were spacious with hot water in the ladies. There are 3 showers, 3 toilets and a hairdryer (20p).

My sister (eight) enjoyed the play park - we were pitched right next to it in the middle of the site. The grass is very well kept and there are tall hedges and trees around most of the site. We walked to Maidenhead (about 2 or 3 miles away)a nice walk and there are horse chestnut trees - lots of conkers had fallen. We would recommend Dave's Place (or something like that) cafe in the town centre, good food and reasonable prices.

As other people have said, the heathrow plane noise is very loud when you are trying to get to sleep, and the M4 is close by - ask for a pitch at the other end of the site where the road noise isn't as bad.

A great campsite, would highly recommend.

Stayed for 5 nights at this site as near to family. This site is small but nicely laid out, with all types of units mixed together. It is well kept and wardens were extremely helpful when we had a problem with jockey wheel on arrival.
The toilets and showers very clean and temp of showers lovely once it reached temperature. One little item that all campers appreciate - lots of lovely hooks on the inside of shower doors! Also disabled shower cubicle had seat in it which my husband really appreciated.
Under cover dishwashing place, fridge and freezer facility for campers and also laundry facilities. All in all facilities very good.
The location great for London, nearby Windsor, Legoland, and if you love cycling or walking right along side the Thames towpath. The only negative was the M4 noise. It is constant and can be instrusive to sleep as it does not diminish at night. So as long as you go there aware of that no problem. Very nice site.

Lovely site if it wasn't by the M4 and under a flight path! Picked it as the site was close to legoland and intended to stay for 2 nights. We left after one night as it was too noisy to sleep. Toilets etc all very clean, friendly staff but would definitely not stay here again purely because of the noise.

This is a lovely site as the previous reviewers have described. The whole site and especially the toilets are very clean and staff friendly. The site is small, even so there are some bays separated by hedges. The site is very well tended with the grass kept short.

The motorway noise could be intrusive as the site is so close to the M4, though mostly it was a dull rumble. It is under the Heathrow Airport flightpath but the aircraft noise stops at night. The noise is a reminder of what life was like when we used to live near here!

It is close to the Thames and the many attractions to the west of London, and is just a short distance from the M4 junction. It is also in an area where there are few campsites. There is a large supermarket a short drive away.

A great site, we will certainly go back there.

Have Just returned from a 3 night stay at Amerden. We chose this site as it was so close to Legoland. Site itself is well maintained and toilets/showers were very clean with plenty of hot water. The river is a 5 min walk from the site and it is a very pleasant walk with some lovely views, however this did not make up for the excessive noise of the M4 which is literally NEXT to the camp site. It's such a shame as it is a lovely site. But the constant noise is too much and we did end up leaving a day early as we needed to go home to be able to sleep past 5am!

Have just come back fom spending 4 days/3 nights at Amerden camp site, can not rate it highly enough we will definitely be going back.

The site has fantastic facilities toilets and shower block very clean, excellent washing up facilities, washing machine, tumble dryer a must when you have spent a day at Thorpe Park and you come back with wet clothes! microwave,fridge and freezer

The people who run the site are so helpful nothing is to much trouble the live in a camper van next to the reception so are always on hand great when you turn up and find you have left your gas behind and the shops have shut for the day.

We spent one day at Legoland for the younger one and the following day at Thorpe Park for the older ones excellent site situated close to both attractions giving short travelling time and maximum attraction time.

The only 2 criticism's we had was the site is just off the M4 so you have back ground traffic noise and the other was the planes taking off from Heathrow you only tended to hear them when the site was quiet ie.At night-time.

One thing I would recommend is that you ring the site direct to book a pitch don't book via e-mail the lady who own's the site answers those. She lives in the house and does't have the diary you need to speak to the people who run the site, they are not the same people.

Fantastic site and people who run it.We would highly recommend it to anyone.

P.S our children did not use the play area as they are to old but it look very good and we saw lots of children using it.
