Only one gripe freezing toilet blocks but lovely hot water and nice showers.

Site good for motorhomes, Park and Ride straight across the road into Oxford which is a great town to visit Winter or Summer.

Shop just down the road for papers and any food bread etc, Chippy close to shop did not use. Nice pub close by that did good food we did not eat but it was always busy with food which looked very appetising. No children's play area that I could see but one close by I think could be used will use again

I had a wonderfully happy stay at this site. 28 days up to January 3rd, so right through the snow and ice. I last stayed here in 2001 and found that very little had altered !

In spite of the tiredness of the facilities, the Wardens, who were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful, and kept a great festive season atmosphere going throughout, keep these facilities spotlessly clean and looking as good and pretty as such elderly facilities possibly could.

Heating in the shower block would have been nice in this extreme weather, but the water was lovely and hot, so the thought of showering was worse than the reality !

The site was noisy, due to it's position so close to the main roads and recycling ( I think that's what it is ) plant but I was not disturbed by it, and the digital TV reception with freeview was perfect, as was the wifi connection using a dongle. This is a perfect location for Oxford City Centre.

Oxford New Theatre can be reached in 5 minutes by car at only 2.3 miles away, but unless taking a taxi and thus avoiding having to find parking, the costs are extortionate. I paid 23 for an afternoon and evening parking !

However, it's a pleasant, flat 30 minute walk or better still, the Oxford Bus Company sells a travel card, known as 'The Oxford Key' at 37 for 4 weeks unlimited travel on any buses in the local area and the park and ride centre is a 3 minute walk from the site.

I purchased mine from the Debenhams Travel Centre in Oxford. Regardless of any work done or not done to this site, I'd return like a shot.

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.

Reviewer: Richbrowning63 9 reviews from this member

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.
