This was our third stay on this site, the reason being purely down to it's close proximity to the city centre,as the site it self is looking really quite 'tired'. I still haven't really noticed the much talked about 'update' I thought it was getting! For me though the major downside is the lack of any hardstanding pitches, which means that at this time of year,y ou are required to pitch up along the site access roads. Not very good for what could, due to it's location ,be a flagship site (It's not the same league as some CC city sites,eg Baltic Wharf,Bristol).

Also, although not overly expensive, considering the time of year, it isn't exactly cheap either (Especially as we didn't even get a 'proper pitch').

Nice site easy to find.

In easy distance of Oxford either by foot or bus as bus stop is just outside caravan site.

Toilet block is a little scruffy and dated but does the job and was clean.

Got a very handy go outdoors at the entrance.

Can go to lots of places by bus and don't have to use the car at all. We didn't.

Staff we really helpful and nice.

Would return if wanting to visit the area again.

Friendly helpful Wardens. Site seemed very tight to move around -we had to move from the pitch we were given by the entrance as it was needed for a very large caravan that was arriving. Very convenient location - the Park & Ride bus is just over the road so we walked round Oxford in the glorious evening light. It's a noisy site, but the CCC Handbook does warn you - so close to the bypass and railway, it's unavoidable.

A few quibbles - There's only one toilet block for 80-odd pitches, so when it's closed for cleaning for 90 minutes in the morning, there's nowhere else to go: other sites have a disabled or family room that can be used if necessary. The Handbook says the site was upgraded in 2009, and I think they could have converted the far end of the long run of toilet cubicles into a disabled / family bathroom. I don't mind the toilets being dated, but the time switch turned the lights off in the morning so no-one could see to shower, put in contact lenses etc. In fairness, the Warden did come and switch the timer on when I told him.

We got the last EHU pitch, and the site was full next night so we had to move on next day. We'd (book and) come back for another visit to Oxford, but being in a motorhome we'd move on to other areas rather than using this site as a base - it wasn't so good that we were sorry to leave.

The site is situated within walking distance to Oxford along 1 road or better still the park and ride opposite takes about 5-10 minutes. The site facilities are ok but dated, the showers are small and you have no dry space to stand after a shower. Even accepting the site is close to a town so not in green fields it still has a very dour feel with no chilled-out feel. It is great if you are of a certain age who likes to watch TV in their caravan but if you like the outdoors and relaxing, grin and bear it and enjoy the location to Oxford. The reception staff were very friendly but the warden a little over-bearing- lots of questions and concerns about my awning. I had to get out of the van for what he could have explained without doing so.

We used this site as a base for attending The Reading Festival on two successive years.

It is very well set up and close to the Bus Station which we used to visit Oxford because we were warned that parking is very difficult in the City Centre.

We also got the train to the festival from the city and this journey was easy on our return too.

The shower/toilets and washing up facilities were clean and well maintained. The people that run the site were very helpful, patient and gave good advice. Not sure how child friendly the site is as we took teenage kids. We will be returning next year.

A lovely site that was clean and tidy despite the heavy thunder storms that caused local flooding. Staff were very helpful. The showers were clean and although dated were very functional.

Site was completely full when I stayed.

Very easy to get into Oxford by way of foot or bus.

The Go Outdoors shop next door was always very busy and had some excellent bargains in the sales.

The children can ride their bikes safely on site and mine made many friends from all over Europe who were staying on the site.

Will definitely come back again to explore the area more.
