The location of this site is brilliant, not the surrounding area, which is pretty ugly and industrial, but the fact that Oxford is a very pleasant half hour walk along the river and the bus stop is right outside the door.

However, the site itself is not a campsite, it is a car park. I have never stayed anywhere with so little space or privacy. The customer service also left a lot to be desired - 'jobs worth' is the expression that springs to mind. The only redeeming feature about the site itself is the abundance of hot water in the shower block - provided you didn't need to use the facilities during the unusually long periods they were closed.

Since the service was so bad, I would normally boycott the site, but the location is so convenient we probably will end up going again.

Its location location location for this campsite. The nearest and handiest for visiting Oxford. Many bus services and about 10 minutes by bus to the city centre. There is a handy Tesco Express about 5 minutes walk away that do lovely warm croissants from about 7 a. M.

The site itself, once you enter past the out door shop is quite attractive with plenty of water points etc. Very little in the way of hard standing. The shower and toilet block, whilst clean and usable badly needs updating. There is a washing machine/dryer. No play facilities for children. There is a park and an indoor swimming pool a short bus ride/15 mins approx. Walk away. No motorhome waste disposal. Some traffic noise but we didn't find it intrusive.

This is a busy site just outside of oxford city, If you approach the site coming over the bridge you might miss the entrance as the sign post is covered by a tree, it is right beside the go outdoors entrance and actually shares their car park entrance. The site is dated but very clean, good access for wheel chairs and mobility scooters, buses run every 15minutes from outside the site into the city, 30 minutes on Sundays, nearest pub and shop about 10/15 minute walk on flat path.

Not expensive. Good showers -not push button which is good! The shower block was fine -not sure why people are so fussy about shower blocks -i mean how long do you spend there! As long as they are clean with hot water -which they were. Friendly site managers. On reading other reviews I notice that someone said a 20 minute walk along the river. We didn't notice the river so close -did I miss this? I would have thought it would take much longer to walk into Oxford, the 'start' of Oxford centre being Folly Bridge. We took the bus and also cycled into Oxford. Oxford is amazing ! I never realised that it had so many beautiful ancient buildings housing the many (around 47) educational institutions. Also all the bicycles! We cycled along the canal (which begins at Hythe Bridge Street). We just made it up to Wolvercote which didn't take long. 3 pubs there. The Trout Inn had a lovely location by the river. I will just deduct one point for the fact that we (and some others I noticed) arrived before 12 but had to wait until 12 to be seen and also the shower block is closed between 12 and 1. 30pm but apart from that it was excellent.

We had a great 8 days at Oxford site so convenient, wardens really friendly and welcoming, could not do too much for us, facilities a bit dated but always clean, cite clean and tidy at all times busy cite but well organised will definitely go again, the cite is very convenient for supermarkets, and the shops and restaurants in Oxford are great.

A great little site for visiting Oxford. We missed the entrance, down the side of Go Outdoors store, through their carpark and the site is just behind.

Its an old site and the toilet / shower block is dated - but its very clean, piping hot showers and no push buttons. Laundry facilities, chem disp but no motorhome service point. Whilst wardens were a little apologetic of facilities they were fine and certainly wouldn't let it put you off visiting, to be fair the facilities are no worse than a lot of the older C&CC sites.

Wardens are top class, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable - a real credit to C&CC. When we stayed grass was still quite wet following recent bad weather so we were parked up on the little roadways that lead to pitches, perfect.

Park + Ride into Oxford goes from outside the site. You can also walk in along the river in 20 minutes. There is a Nisa and Tesco within 5 minutes walk plus a chip shop and a couple of pubs.

We visited Oxford and loved it - the Covered Market is a must, brilliant shops and cafes in a 1940's style market hall. The buildings of the university are stunning, get a free city guide and you can easily walk around the majority in a day.

We used the City Bus Tour and have to say its disappointing. At 14 per head for an hour we expected to see a lot - really it just did the same as we could have walked in an hour plus a couple of roads out to the railway station and Woodstock Road. Our advice is not to bother and see the city on foot.

If there is a downside to the site then there is a fair amount of noise from the railway which starts early and goes on late, traffic noise is not intrusive.

Whilst the site is old its well kept and well run, would not hesitate to recommend this one for Oxford or the surrounding area.
