About the Park

Our family-friendly park sits alongside the River Thames in the picturesque village of Hurley between Henley-on-Thames and Marlow and has been run by four generations of the same family since 1926.

With direct access to the River Thames and the Thames Path we are perfect for lovers of the river and walkers alike. For those with a boat or canoe we have two slipways and for those without we have river frontage for picnics. With the lush green countryside of the Thames Valley all around, red kites circling above and the river traffic gliding past it is hard to believe we are only an hour outside London.

We have won the prestigious David Bellamy Gold Award for Conservation since it began in 1997 and have even won their rare Special Distinction Award. To teach children about the local wildlife we have a self-guided nature trail which follows the length of the campsite.

We are a fantastic base for campers fleeing the frenzy of urban living while being only 5 miles from Henley and 10 miles from Windsor.

We offer a happy, family-friendly atmosphere and only accept bookings from families and couples. We are proud that many of our caravanners and campers return year after year and recommend us to family and friends. In fact some of our customers who visited us as children now bring their own grandchildren!

History of the Park

The Burfitt family began farming in Hurley when Chris Burfitt bought the farm in 1926 when the Danesfield and Medmenham Estates were split up. The farm was run from The Farm House in Mill Lane and consisted of mainly dairy cows.

Future generations of the family expanded the farm until it reached approximately 500 acres of arable and grass producing wheat, barley, oats, beans, sheep and cattle.

The caravan holiday boom of the 1960s led to the first static caravan being sited on farm land near the river. This was soon joined by more caravans and requests were made for more permanent facilities to be made available to members of the public.

A project to begin installing infrastructure began in the 1970s and soon a site license was approved for the permanent siting of static caravans in what is now the Holiday Park.

Permission was also granted for touring caravans and tents to stay in what is now the Touring Park.

Hurley Riverside Park formed in 2001 when Hurley Farm Ltd separated its Holiday Park business from its agricultural business.
