This is a pleasant tree-lined site in a spot which is very convenient for getting into Oxford by bus or a lovely walk along the riverside. Oxford is a very interesting and historic city with some wonderful places to see and to visit. The Pitt Rivers museum (in the Natural History Museum) is fascinating. It was so interesting with such diverse collections of exhibits, that we had to go back for a second visit.

Facilities on the site were fine. Showers and toilets were adequate and clean with soap, loo rolls and plenty of hot water. Washing up area was OK too. We had no problem with access to the site, although the barrier was often left in the up position.

Access to the Go Outdoors shop was too easy, and I bought new boots, fleeces and walking trousers!

Pub food available within easy walking distance along the main road, and plenty of buses (free to those of us with bus passes!) to a variety of places around the area.

I would recommend this site, and we will stay there again - provided it's still there- if we're visiting Oxford in the future.

The site has a great location 1 mile from the centre of Oxford.

Leave the car and cross the road to the park & ride bus station, costs £2. 40 return for each adult, kids under 16 ride free + free wifi on board.

Great to cycle or walk to the centre which takes about 30 mins.

Plenty to do around the city from bus & walking tours, climbing the spires, visits to the colleges & cathedral as well as following the inspector morse trails, Alice in wonderland story & Harry potter film locations. Blenheim palace is about 9 miles away & makes a great visit.

The site itself is situated behing a go outdoors store which owns it, but apparently only grant short one year lease's to the club, hence the reluctance to invest in the facilities.

The toilets are in the middle, a bit dated but clean, with plenty of hot water in the shower. Electricity was stated at 10amp but due to time of year of visit & units all having heating on, it really struggled and the whole site tripped out on a few occasions, don't know how it would cope if it was full.

No kids facilities on site, ie playground.

The pitches are fairly level but do undulate in places so ramps are recommended.

There is no motor home service point, as all the pitches are grass the motor homes generally park on all the paths, so the site can turn into a bit of a giant car park.

Mobile phone signal was good together with good tv reception.

A code is needed to get into the site which apparently changes on a Friday, which the wardens didn't warn us about, until we got back at 9. 30 on the Friday night and couldn't get in!

All in all decent site with a good location. Well worth visiting the area.

Really friendly welcome on arrival from fab wardens. This site is a tree surrounded haven on the edge of this popular city. A very busy little site probably due its location. Only half an hour walk into the city by either the roadway or riverside walk which is really pleasant, walking by the university boat houses and watching the rowers practice their sport whilst their coach peddles along the bank shouting instructions! Oxford is a fantastic city and well worthy of a few days visit, and this site is the best base for convenience.

I quite liked this site. Sure, the toilet/shower block have seen better days but they were perfectly functional. The staff were really friendly, especially when choosing a pitch and after we got in to a little trouble when our bikes were locked in oxford and we couldn't get the lock open. A frantic phone call and some borrowed WD40 did the trick.

The site was much better than I expected too. Some have been very negative about the area but you are really close to oxford centre but still surrounded by trees. Along with some resident ducks. You are right opposite the park and ride and the river is only a short walk away. We did follow the cycle route in to Abingdon. It's about 7 miles, mostly off road and quite flat. So I'd be more than happy to go back again.

First visit to this site, will definitely be back, yes the toilets are a bit dated, but they are CLEAN and that's all that matters, if people want porcelain toilets and marble showers, stay and pay for a hotel!

The site itself is well kept the wardens are perfect hosts, perfect for exploring oxford with the park and ride just outside the door. Who could want or ask for more from a camping -caravan trip. So let's be positive people. Life is too short.

Our second visit and still no improvements to the facilities block I still could not use washup facilities they being two sinks each side of the chemical toilet empting point and the grey waste drain at the side not very hygienic really. The showers and basins are showing their age and there are no privacy cubicles. But the site is in a perfect place for visiting Oxford and Abingdon (a lovely little place) being next to the park and ride and a bus stop at the entrance. The staff very helpful taking you to your pitch and helping you park up. There is a Tesco Express and Nisa round the corner and a Pub that does food and of course a fish and chip shop and a cooked chicken type café. We will be back but would love to see a new facilities block.
