We arrived on a Friday afternoon to be greeted by friendly wardens who showed us to the area they wanted us to pitch then gave us a choice of three. Our son was travelling down after work to join us and we were told he could park next to our unit when he arrived as long as it was before 11p.M. When the barrier is locked for the night (accessed by a 4 figure code during the day). We were told if he was later he could park in the Go Outdoors car park immediately in front of the site, although I think we would have used the park and ride opposite instead because of the large signs saying 'no overnight parking' at Go Outdoors.

Access to the site is along a narrow lane leading through the car park which gets very busy at weekends. They had car park attendants on duty allowing cars through one at a time when spaces became available, but this meant that when we wanted to return to the campsite for lunch midday on Saturday we had no choice but to wait in the queue until we finally got to the front.

The park and ride is certainly convenient and efficient for travelling into Oxford and we also followed the instructions given by the wardens to follow the lovely riverside walk into Oxford town centre too.

The shower blocks had only three working showers each and long queues to use them in the mornings. The numerous washbasins were rarely used and we felt it would be better use of space to install more showers in their place. On the second morning, the water had run cold by the time I reached the front of the queue so we used the shower in the motorhome for the final day.

I would use the site again because of the easy access into Oxford, but would probably try to avoid moving in or out of the site during busy shop opening times; and I would rely on the motorhome's bathroom facilities unless the shower block is updated.

Bank Holiday weekend and wanting to combine camping trip with a visit to see son at one of the colleges. Delighted with our pitch, flat and well mown.

Not troubled by any noise from main roads, railways or dairy. Found it all very peaceful but still able to have a drink and a chat with friends in the evening.

Facilities are fine, I would agree they are dated but were kept clean. Not chucked out of the facilities when cleaning time started as some reviews suggest, in fact the staff were very friendly.

Nice walk to the city centre along the river bank, saw the college crews training in their boats.

We generally go to the Lakes/Wales/Dales for sites in stunning scenery with open countryside walks but this was absolutely fine for our purposes and has added a new dimension to our camping as we will now look at parkland style sites.

Really excellent site. The managers were so friendly and couldn't be more accommodating. We were staying in a tent but were being joined by family in a caravan later. The managers did what they could to put us together and we enjoyed a weeks camping and caravanningy right next to each other.

Its true, the showers and toilets are a little out of date, but they were clean, hot and plenty of them.

The railway line didn't really bother us (very limited noise) but you have to remember that you are on the edge of Oxford City centre.

Great location for getting in and out of Oxford - park and ride directly opposite site.

I cant praise this site enough, an excellent week was had and we will definitely return.

Our first time camping with a tent for over 15 years. It was a good welcome back. The duty staff were efficient and courteous, the site is well laid out and spacious.
Having read some reviews of the site and having recently 'campervanned' around New Zealand for a month I was pleasantly surprised, the urban noises of a city site were not intrusive and the services block was perfectly adequate.
Being next to 'Go Outdoor' was great for us aged campers who forget things. It's access from the by-pass is easy and access to the city with the bus service and river walk are excellent. Just beware the 300 bus service becomes the X3, X13 after about 8:00 pm.

My husband and I visited here in March. Lovely pretty site, level and quiet. Ideal for visiting Oxford - just 2 - 3 minutes walk to the park and ride where buses are frequent to the city centre.

Staff on site very helpful Shower block a little dated but clean, apparently going to be updated next year. Next door to a big camping shop - ideal for gas etc

Would go back!

We visited for the first Bank holiday weekend in may with a group of friends.

The site was fairly basic but the showers and toilets were clean, although no electric points in the blocks!

The owners were really nice and friendly and on hand should we have needed anything.

The only draw back was camping next to a train line and what seemed to be an all night dairy and as such large trucks were coming and going all night so the site was extremely noisy! I would recommend ear plugs!

Overall the site was good, and a great location for getting in Oxford.
