“Brilliant reception and facilities”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Although we were the only tent camping in sheet rain followed by snow it didn't dampen our enthusiasm for this excellent campsite. Greeted by reception was a delight and very informative on the local area and wildlife. We got settled in very quickly. Good pub on site great staff, take away food that delivers, very local to the town centre with lots of pubs. Will definitely be back in better weather conditions to try the pool! :)

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

An excellent caravan park in a fantastic location. We took my boyfriend's parents' motor home in March to explore the surrounding area. It was ideally placed to walk into Henley (5 mins). We visited the Hand and Flowers pub while we were down and were able to catch a good bus service to Marlow, so that we could enjoy some wine with the meal.
The caravan park is not only well situated, but it's also well organised with good pitches and excellent facilities. My boyfriend enjoyed a little fishing on the lake even! Staff were friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this caravan park to anyone visiting the area.

Took our camper van here as only 6 miles from Pishill in the Chilterns where we wanted to walk.
Lovely friendly reception and really pleasantly laid out and landscaped pitches with all amenities. Shower blocks were clean, warm and well appointed.

I stayed here in a tent with my 11 year old daughter for 5 nights and we both really enjoyed it. For us, there is just the right balance of enough facilities without being too commercial. There is a heated outdoor pool (small extra charge) a small modern club house with a tv, pool table, lounge area and bar which also serves tea and coffee. The reception area has plenty of local information as well as a shop selling essentials and some camping equipment (including air beds - which we found very useful when ours sprang a leak!). We found the staff to be friendly and helpful at all times. The bar staff even opened the shop for me out of hours when I needed some washing powder which emphasises their "customers first" attitude.

Shower blocks are modern with each shower having a private changing area too and there are free hair dryers. There are laundry facilities for which you need to purchase tokens. The only minor annoyance was that these are used for washing the bedding from the static units on site, which means they are not always available for campers, but I am pleased to say that the opening hours of the laundry are extended during busy times, so this didn't detract too much from our positive experience.

Adjacent to the swimming pool is a large open field with some playground equipment which my daughter describes as "simple but with room for imagination". The field gives ample space for ball games etc. The site was busy when we were there, but it wasn't overly noisy and we met some lovely people too.

You can walk into Henley in about 10 minutes which offers a range of shopping and eating establishments. This site is a great base for visiting many attractions. We went to the Harry Potter Studios Tour from here as well as a day trip to Windsor and a day by train from Henley into central London. Other places such as Legoland and the Cotswolds are possible day trips.

Many of the people we spoke to at Swiss Farm were returning customers and a couple of families had been there seven years in a row! We can see why and we would definitely return to this site ourselves.

Stayed in a tent with my 7 year old and 17 year old. We all loved it !!! Great shower blocks, all spotlessly clean. Several large fields for tents and caravans. Great outdoor swimming pool which the kids loved. Great little bar, with a pool table and TVs. 10 minute walk to the centre of beautiful Henley-on-Thames. One of the very best camp-sites which i have stayed at !!!
