Excellent site with very helpful staff. Handy for Oxford, 20 minute walk to centre. Bit of noise from outside site, but to be expexcted fro location, so near centre.

Staff were very good and GO Camp shop next door, for emergency camping supplies. Toilets a bit dated, but perfectly OK for us. No complaints, well worth joining Club just for this site.

Stayed at this campsite for a weekend visit to Oxford.

The people that run the site were very friendly & helpful on arrival providing all the information needed to find your way around the site & what to do in Oxford. We booked well ahead & there was a sign saying it was full - but the tents were well spaced out which was good.

The site is well located for a visit to Oxford with the park & ride next door - although a much more pleasant way of getting to the centre is to walk down to Donnington Bridge and then walk in down the river to Folly Bridge.

My only complaint about the site is the night time noise from the neighbouring dairy yard & the railway. This is unlikely to bother anyone in a motorhome or caravan - so it seems a little odd that they've situated the tents right opposite the dairy/by the train line. The dairy clanks throughout the night whilst loading the milk floats & trains seem to use their whistle as the pass the site. So would be an idea to move the tents to the other side of the site - but otherwise take some earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

I thought the toilet block was pretty good with plenty of cubicles & good showers - though they could have done with some of those wooden floor boards to stand on in the showers as they seemed to flood every day.

There's not a lot of amenities near the site - The Duke of Monmouth is a short walk down Abingdon Road - but it's not one of Oxford's better pubs & there's also a chippy nearby but we didn't eat there. That said this wasn't an issue as you're spoilt for choice with Oxford just down the road.

All in all good site to stay at when visiting Oxford & we'll be back - just equipped with earplugs next time!

This is a perfect site for visiting Oxford City Centre. Site is behind Go Outdoors, and once you are in the site you really do feel you are in the middle of the countryside.

The pitches on site are extremely spacious, site wardens are very helpful and friendly. You've got everything you need on site, plenty of fresh water, showers, waste disposal.

We felt it took around 30 minutes to walk into town, but the park and ride is about 3 minutes walk from the site and runs until 8pm. Travelling back after this time you can still use your tickets on other public transport.

Plenty to do and see - if you fancy going further a field London is only an hour away on the train. Look to book online - we did for 8 return!

Plenty of pubs and restaurants all in walking distant and excellent fish and chip shop about 10 minutes walk.

First time we have visited Oxford would highligh recommend a trip and also a stay at the site.

A high standard site, level with plenty of showers and toilets in a central block. Staff great, help you pitch and offer advice.

Park and ride opposite site, we never used car, got buses to Oxford, Abingdon, Didcot.

Local shop very expensive, take car to supermarket or carry food from Oxford. A little noise from railway near site but quiet at night.

Site is behind Go Outdoors and is owned by them. Could do with better signs on road outside as several people including me miss the entrance first time. We intend to return.

Urban location behind 'Go Camping' store but once on site you are unaware of the proximity of major roads etc. Very convenient to walk or bus into Oxford. Nice walk along the river.

Pleasant site, well laid out and maintained. Toilet block etc functional but not yet had the updating which many CCC sites have received over recent years.

Helpful friendly wardens who keep grass well cut and generally keep the site in good order.

In Oxford recommend Carfax Tower and Magdalen College. Was disappointed with The Rose Tearoom which did not live up to its publicity. Worth a drive to National Trust Waddesdon Manor which is possibly the best NT property I have visited.

The site is extremely well situated for visiting the city, by foot or bus with the Park & Ride being only a few minutes walk. The site staff were very helpful on arrival and the details provided for the area were useful and there was a well stocked information point.

The showers could do with being redone as the flooring leads to pools of water and being tiled could easily lead to slips.

Slight noise from the railway and some form of industrial / council site, but otherwise well worth a visit or two.
