Vintage Caravan Hotel
Sleeping up to six people and chock-full of authentic vintage delights, boutique caravan Matilda is your setting for the perfect family holiday.
Better still, you can choose your ideal location and as if by magic, Matilda will be brought to you (free of charge within a fifteen-mile radius of Henley-on-Thames)
A beautifully spacious 1964 Cheltenham Springbok caravan, Matilda was rescued from her unloved and dilapidated state by vintage enthusiasts, who transformed her into a family-friendly holiday haven reminiscent of soothing times past.
Creatively designed and gloriously furnished, inside Matilda you'll find custom-built triple bunk beds for children, with the bottom bunk converting into a safe cot for a baby or toddler. All bedding is supplied, including plump pillows and toasty baby sleeping bags!
Meanwhile, parents can relax in a gorgeous kingsize bed with memory foam - and when you're not sleeping, the bed cleverly morphs into a cosy dining area.
Facilities are covered too, with an electric flush toilet (no smelly chemical loos here!) and a stylish kitchenette equipped with everything you'll need - including a fridge, a sink with running water, and a two-ring gas cooker.
There's plenty of space to relax, and plenty of storage for those holiday essentials, as you surround yourselves in luxurious décor that includes beautiful vintage wallpaper and bunting, soft-glowing LED lighting and muted ice-cream colours.
If you prefer watching the world go by outside, al fresco seating is included. Catch up on reading time as you stretch out on a sun lounger, or enjoy a relaxing cuppa whilst sat at your table and chairs...the choice is yours! Oh, and stargazing is covered too, with solar lanterns and a gazebo also available.
Choose to stay in the charming Buckinghamshire village of Chalfont St. Giles itself, at the recommended Highclere Farm campsite, or select a local location of your own - including your garden or a private estate if approved!
A second recommended location is the award-winning Hurley Riverside Park, set alongside the River Thames and ideal for walkers and water-babies alike.
As if all this wasn't quite enough, there is a wide selection of additional services available too, with everything from chilled Champagne, flowers and chocolates, a disposable barbecue and fresh provisions, to babysitting services on offer.
With absolutely everything you'll ever need for the perfect family holiday so beautifully covered, all that's left for you to do is arrive, unpack...and simply relax!

Tried and tested
"We had the most wonderful stay in Hurley Riverside Park where Matilda, the beautiful vintage caravan was ready and pitched for us. Immaculately clean, gorgeous bedding and super well equipped, we had the best time. We were pitched near The River Thames with a stunning walk to Hurley Lock and into Hurley Village for afternoon tea at The Olde Belle. What a treat and a wonderful experience to have in such a lovely caravan. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed it especially. Kat the owner was very, very helpful, told us everything we needed to know at length about the caravan and site... we would and definitely will be staying again."
"The caravan is incredibly well-kitted out and stylishly decorated, which made our stay very comfortable! Kat has gone out of her way to accommodate us, even booking the campsite for us. And importantly: the bed is very comfy and big enough for two tall people. We're even thinking about booking again."
"We hired this gorgeous caravan for May Bank holiday weekend. It was absolutely perfect. Kat delivered it with loads of beautiful finishing touches like fresh flowers, bunting and a personalised message board for my daughter whose birthday it was for. We will definitely hire it again!"
