As I work for myself and don’t need a permanent office I like to sometimes change my scenery and visit different campsites. There is something that lifts my spirits knowing that I’m stepping out from the routine and going somewhere new and unknown. Not wanting a mammoth drive I started to look at campsites in the Surrey and Sussex area. A number looked promising but a few are not due to open until late March. In the end the one I decided to book into for 2 nights was Honeybridge Park campsite.
The drive to Honeybridge Park was an easy one but I did notice some potholes both on the approach and indeed within the grounds. The lady on reception was friendly and issued me a card to allow me to enter the security gate. There is a £10.00 security deposit charged for the card and the gate is locked between 11pm and 7am.
I was given a pitch with good views overlooking fields in the distance. I was warned that the pitch was sloping but I never use wheel ramps despite owning them. Honeybridge Park was far from full so I could have probably asked for a different pitch had I wanted one but the slope was not an issue. My pitch was number 64 and the electric hookup point was in need of repair but it was still working.
Honeybridge Park – The facilities
As well as touring motorhomes and caravans, Honeybridge Park has a number of static caravans and lodges in a separate area of the site. There are two shower blocks, a children’s play area and a few water points. The shower block I used was the newer one which includes a laundry and small cafe / shop. The shower block was very clean and the showers were among the best I’ve used. Whilst you could not change the temperature, I found they were hotter and better pressure than the ones I usually use at Chertsey. The cafe is called The Honeypot Cafe and they do snacks, cooked breakfasts and sell the basic food supplies. It should be noted that in the month of March they are only open between 4pm and 6pm during the week but since there are no other shops within walking distance the shop is a handy feature. There is a motorhome service point but it’s not the type you can park over and I could not be bothered connecting the hose to drain my grey water tank.
Honeybridge Park – Summary
I enjoyed my short stay at Honeybridge Park. It’s in a scenic area and the facilities are good. It’s open all year and their website states that they have some seasonal pitches. It’s more expensive than a Camping and Caravanning Club site with a hardstanding pitch fee of £12.20 and additional charges based on the number of adults, children and dogs. The charges per person vary depending on whether it’s low, mid or high season. There did not seem to be any wifi signal but the three mifi had good reception. If I happen to find myself in the area again I would happily stay at Honeybridge Park again.
