treetops holiday camp - posted by Robert
I'm desperately searching for information about a holiday camp near Guildford called Treetops.

My mother is 60 this year and she holidayed here as a child. Treetops would have been open in the 1950s and the accomodation was a series of converted railway carriages.

If anyone can e-mail me any photographs of Treetops I would be very grateful

i was also there in the late 50s on a family holiday and also staying in a railway carriage!i was about 8 at the time. my father and his friends all did 'square dancing' as a pastime and we had a hoedown down there during a weeks holiday. as i recall the holiday was cut short as there was a forest fire which could be seen from the camp. my sister and i were bloody scared of it....i remember that!!

Well, I have emailed Robert on this. I am the daughter of the owners of the camp. Yes, remember the fire. My brother helped fight it and my mother ferried refreshments to the firefighters. I now live in a new house on the old site but one old chalet and a very ramshackle pool still exixts in the woods

In the mid 50's as a child I used to help serve and clean out those railway carriages. What fun!
