    First of all a big thank you for the help in planning, we are now settled in to Apps Court Farm, what a find, we are parked in a quiet corner with Electric Hook up / Full 3 mifi and phone signal but best of all 25 yards from the Thames cycle path, we cycled to Hampton Court station for a reccy, lovely little village feel, so much to do, tomorrow we will cycle to Weybridge along the cycle path, it seems hard to believe we are so close to London and all for £18 a night with electric.

    We are really pleased with the site, though to take full advantage of it I would say you need bikes, with bikes I think it is hard to beat. Will put some photos on in the next couple of days.

    We are spending this weekend with friends in Teddington, just up the road from you. It is indeed a very nice part of the country. Enjoy:thumb:

    We live about 5miles from where you are camped. Don't know if you know Kingston upon Thames but lots of good pubs/restaurants on the river. Lots of good river walks towards Teddington. Also, you are just a short walk to 'The Wier' another nice pub. I think it's to your left along the towpath. Have fun.

    One other thing.

    I see that you have already cycled to Hampton Court. If you cross over the bridge and pick up the towpath outside Hampton Court Palace it takes you all the way to Kingston. You can then either cross Kingston Bridge and explore or else turn left at end of towpath and enter into Hampton Court Park. On the other side of the road you can access Bushy Park - both worth a visit.

    Being a lady she might prefer to pop into John Lewis before crossing Kingston bridge. :Wink:

    Thank you for that the walk and Borough Market are definitely on our to do list, hopefully tomorrow we will feel our way around the capital.

    Thanks Rob, another on our to do list a good job we have got 3 weeks think we will need it, today we cycled to Weybridge and had a look around there, brilliant cycling trouble is I am so busy looking at everything we get no where fast, the rain caught up with us for a hour then passed so just had a walk around Apps Farm looking at the Micro pigs and 2 week old Sheltland Pony it is beautiful, booked a taxi to take us to the station in the morning. No idea where to go to first. :Smile:

    Hi Carol, If you get the chance have a cycle into Richmond Park and see the deer:thumb: while in there head for Isabella Plantations you will love it, We're in Putney and visit often as it's so nice:thumb: The park is very cycle friendly.
    Enjoy.

    Yes thank you for the recommendation we would never have found it without, it's really peaceful and quite, hard to believe we are so close to London, we have had sunshine and showers today, hope the weather picks up for you. :Smile:
