Beautiful surroundings 360 degrees. Very peaceful. It was a great layout of all the tents around the edge and loads of space in between for kids to play so you can also keep an eye on them. The younger kids could go to the toilet and the hub by themselves and it felt very safe. The pizzas were excellent and was lovely to sit near the hub and have them. Wendy the manager was amazing. So warm and welcoming and really helpful. The whole site had a really nice vibe, laid back and friendly and not corporate at all with too many rules and regulations everywhere! which is lovely. Thank you, we had a fab time.

Large safe playing area in centre. The trees around were great for the kids to explore. Right by the river and lots to do. By a town so easy for food and things we had forgotten!!
Manager Sarah was really helpful caring and made us feel so welcome throughout weekend. A great asset to the site with lots of local knowledge

The toilet facilities were great, the shop was very useful and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. the access to Polesden Lacey is also a great asset, I didn't realise it was actually within the Polesden Lacey Estate, that was pretty special. We liked the car free play and field is lovely.

There was a campsite that would have been a little closer to the centre of Henley, however looking at the Embers website made me sure this would be worth the extra walk – I was right, it was! We arrived late in the day, having kayaked down the river from Reading then walked from the town centre – my children and I were shattered and needed a decent shower and a good night’s sleep. Alex had texted earlier in the afternoon to ascertain our arrival time, and even though it was going to be later than her working hours, she waited and greeted us with a smile and made sure we were settled in a pitch of our choosing, with a log fire at the ready, she even gave us some of her own marshmallows to toast – a small gift, but really made our evening! The site itself is beautiful – set in large grounds, surrounded by trees and sheep, with the river at the bottom of the field. Pitches are far apart with plenty of space in the middle for games. I thoroughly enjoyed the camp showers (hot, powerful and no silly button to keep on pressing), they are housed in wooden shacks so give you a sense of being semi outdoors. The loos and showers are all kept beautifully clean. We peeked into one of the bell tents – these are lovely as they are all brand new. The walk into Henley is beautiful, you travel along the river and through fields, it only takes 25 mins. This is a wonderful campsite, one of the nicest we’ve been to (and we camp a lot), we look forward to returning next year.

We had a wonderful time. The highlights were:
- The beautiful setting - the field itself, the estate and the surrounding countryside.
- The site was well maintained and had a very civilised feel - even with pretty much all sites taken, everyone behaved very respectfully of other people.
- We enjoyed the bacon rolls and coffee in the morning and the pizzas at night.
- A nice modern shower/toilet block

The site and view are absolutely beautiful; great facilities - spotless and in perfect working order; lovely having a few games outside for the children; oh and yummy pizzas on arrival which were exactly what was needed! Site managers super friendly and helpful. Will def look forward to booking an Embers site again and will recommend.

We had a great weekend at Embers Bentley! The site is big, well maintained, campers were spread out around the site so we didn't feel on top of each other. We could drive to our pitch, unload and then park the car off site so there was plenty of space for the kids to play in the middle of the field without cars driving around. Water was hot, showers were clean, sinks were constantly cleaned. There weren't any queues for washing up or showers, which was great! The owners were super friendly and helpful.They were always around, cleaning and chatting while they worked. The pizza were great too! What a treat. We will be back!
