On your doorstep, the meadows leading onto the upper stretches of the River Thames next to Newbridge which is in fact the oldest bridge on the entire length of the River Thames. Built in 1250 by monks, this place later became the scene of a battle during the English civil wars. Nowadays it is a scene of rural tranquility with big skies & beautiful sunsets. Geese fly over at dusk & the family of swans parade their latest brood of eight signets. Enjoy it with our luxurious back to basics glamping

Simon's place was a quiet secluded spot, only us, which we liked very much. There was a lovely view of the river from the tent. We ate at the near by pub, and after enjoyed an atmospheric fire pit, despite the drizzle! 😀 We took advantage of the hot tub on the river which was …

Amazing night away, nice bell tent with a comfy bed and great separate bathroom. Being the only ones in the field really made it, so nice not to have to share the space, booking the floating hot tub is a must, swimming in the river and then relaxing in the hot tub with a drink an…

I am a man of simple pleasures and can be found messing about in boats, riding my bicycle and getting closer to nature when I am not working. The refurbished Maybush Inn at Newbridge on Thames and the Swan View Shepherds hut are my recent work creations and just one mile away in …
