Cookham Lock

Review of Cookham Lock

Aug 24, 2016, by JHvW

Cookham Lock is a very secluded campsite. So secluded in fact, that it is hard to get to. But well worth it. The campsite is located adjacent to the lock. Which means that if you camp will small children, they WILL need to be supervised. The coming and going of boats is an attraction by itself. Although the aminities are very basic, this is a pleasant campsite conveniently located near London. My only frustration is that I wanted to visit Cliveden, which you can see from the lock, but which is only reachable by road. On the other hand you can see the campsite from Cliveden and think "so close, yet so far away". The lockkeeper lives in a cottage next to the lock. He is very friendly. The Bounty is a pub about 30 minutes walk. If you fancy a drink by the Thames, I can strongly recommend it. It is a nice, easy walk, and having a drink, on the bank of the Thames, on a warm summernight, is very close to my idea of heaven. I stayed two days, I wish I could have stayed longer.
