Close to the lodges you'll find the Thames path, cycle trails and riverside pubs. It's the ideal holiday for those who like the outdoors but also city breaks and home comforts.  on the park itself there is a cafe/bistro so you don't have to travel far for some delicious food or a few drinks.

The cottage was a home from home and had all mod cons and everything you needed (and more) for a weekend getaway. The hot tub was not private though and everyone could see you when you are in it!

No ac or fans so the cabin got very hot over night.

We picked the first lovely warm week of the year! Had a relaxing few days in the sunshine. The main road is quite close to the lodges and quite busy so some noise especially the motorbikes taking advantage of the straight dry road.
The hot tub was why we had booked this place and it didn't disappoint.

Great hope to go again soon. Would be helpful to have something to help getting in and out of the bath to even shower, maybe a rail/seat. Thank you.

Downfall was we was facing caravan awnings and had no privacy in hot tub
Accommodation excellent. Very clean. Lovely Position by the Thames and good restaurant on site.
The lodges are at the far end of the complex away from the cafe. Not a lot of foot traffic. There's a view of the river and boats from the balcony. Close to the Thames Path.
Had a fantastic stay for the second time. Luxurious lodge. Great value for money.
Great Sian was very welcoming
Great location lots to see. Cafe was closed evening in March. Office closed when we arrived and Sunday no contract telephone.
We had a lovely stay here, it was quiet and clean and a tranquil location. We were there early, slightly out of season, so the riverside cafe wasn't open for dinner. But there were nice pubs in the area and an M&S within walking distance, so we had options. It was a good base (if you have a car) to explore Oxfordshire.
Great location, lodge and hot tub. All of a very high and excellent standard couldn't fault it. Only slight downside for me was the traffic noise. But this may not be a problem for other people.
Beautiful lodge with everything you need for a relaxing break, hot tub was fantastic just what you need after a day walking. So peaceful and lovely surroundings really enjoyed our stay we will be back. Pauline and Dennis from Derbyshire.
Very relaxing break. Will be a lot better when laurel hedging grows to make hot tubs private
would return. lodge was spotless. had everything we needed.

Fun Days Out near Benson Waterfront

This is an all weather attraction in Abingdon, Oxfordshire which will appeal to all ages.  The model trains are fascinating to watch and we love the model village in the Vale Scene.  The exhibits have been well thought out and it's a pleasure to wander around this museum looking at everything on offer.  You can be assured of a warm welcome from the moment you arrive and for kids and adults alike this makes a fun and educational day out.
Farmer Gows - about 20 Miles
Farmer Gows is a recommended attraction in the Faringdon area of Oxfordshire and will be especially suited to families with young children.  The little ones will love coming to see the farm animals including pigs, cows and lambs.  The meet the animals session takes place every day and includes handling the animals, walking the goats, feeding the pigs and cows and egg collecting.  Look out for special seasonal events throughout the year such as the Halloween Party, Lambing and children's workshops.  The latest news from the farm is that they have some Saddleback piglets and Speckledy chicks arriving shortly.
