Working for myself gives me a great deal of flexibility. During the week my office can literally be anywhere, as long as I have access to the internet. I often like a change to the routine and seek out a new campsite to visit. This was just such an occasion. Not wanting a long drive I ended up deciding to book 2 nights at Honeybridge Park campsite.
The drive to Honeybridge Park itself was an easy one. I did however 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. 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. Slight slopes have never really bothered me however. The electric hookup post on my pitch looked 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 the shop is only open between 4pm and 6pm during the week. The shop is still a useful feature however since there are no other shops within a walking distance. There is a motorhome service point but it’s not the type you can park over.
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. Hardstanding pitch fee is £12.20 and additional charges based on the number of adults, children and dogs apply. The charges per person vary depending on whether it’s low, mid or high season. There did not seem to be any campsite wifi signals on most mobile networks seems good. If I happen to find myself in the area again I would happily use this campsite again. If you want to look at their website please click here.
