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.

We visited this site for a long weekend at the end of half term with two small children. The site owners were very friendly and we had a choice of pitches and were guided on to it. The leaflet you receive on arrival details everything you need to know and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The site is near main roads and a railway line but we didn't find this intrusive at night at all. We were expecting the worst with the shower blocks from reading reviews but were pleasantly surprised to find them in full working order and very clean, especially given it was a muddy time of year, we didn't once go in and find anything dirty they were beautifully maintained. The block is dated but I've been in some lovely modern toilet blocks that an hour after cleaning are filthy, not the case here at all the owners use the facilities themselves and maintain them all day long. The showers aren't the greatest but they are enough to get you clean! We loved that we parked the car on arrival and didn't touch it until we departed. The park and ride is a doddle and there are walks around the area although we didn't go on any this visit. We also visited the nearby Duke of Monmouth pub which provided us with a good meal for a very reasonable price. We had a lovely weekend and will be back again next year.

A well kept and organised site. We were greeted by the warden and taken to our pitch, all the facilities were explained clearly. The showers and toilet block etc were kept immaculate, plenty of hot water. It rained heavily when we were there but although large puddles appeared it soon drained when the rain stopped and no problems getting off the pitch. Easy to get in and out of Oxford, using the park and ride bus from opposite the campsite. A ten minute walk takes you to the Thames towpath, there is a lovely lock at Iffley which is worth a look. Shop easy to reach on foot and it looks like a new supermarket being built a bit closer.

The campsite booklet was very comprehensive, explaining shops etc but unfortunately did not show where the drinking water taps were situated, a map of the site could be useful

We had a great 3 days despite the rain, and we will return I'm sure.

Our second visit to this site, chosen simply because of it's close proximity to Oxford which is, as previous reviewers have stated, easily reached by bus, bicycle or on foot. We didn't use any nearby facilities, other than a shop and the bus service, choosing instead to spend our time in the city. One local facility we would have definitely used had the weather been better is the outdoor heated swimming pool in Hinskey Park, about a 15 minute walk from the site. We recommend you walk or cycle there as parking appears to be quite limited. If you are visiting with children you may want to do this, or perhaps use the Local Authority park next door (you need to leave the site to access this) because there are no recreational facilities on the actual site.

Office/shop offers a very limited range of produce, but you can get essentials and much more at a mini market around the corner on the main drag into the city, no more than 5 min walk from site entrance. You'll also find a pub along here that serves meals, we didn't try it, but it looked ok. Regarding nearby shops, possibly one of the most unique features of this site is its immediate proximity to a camping shop, Go Outdoors.

Although we visit this site principally for its location, there are other thing to recommend it for. We have found it to be a relatively peaceful site, if you ignore the background drone of traffic, the occasional train and the emergency services' two-tone sirens. It's a nice size, level and well drained and surrounded by mature trees.

We have no issues with the dated toilet/washroom facilities, the reason for their condition has been well documented here, perhaps we're just not fussy types, but we find them perfectly adequate and as tent dwellers they are our only option for ablutions. Good undercover washing up facilities and chem toilet disposal point, refuse area information point complete the package.

The staff/managers deserve a special mention, they work tirelessly to ensure the cleanliness and smooth running of the site. Very friendly indeed.

Very good site the location is excellent with a bus stop and a park and ride just outside with buses every 10/15 mins. The site itself is fine even though they can only get yearly lease so haven't spent lots on money on it. ( Which I think the price reflects). The showers are clean as are the toilets and the water is hot. The site is very busy and the wardens are very good on site shop is handy. The walk into Oxford by the river is lovely only 40 minutes. Would go again I only hope the C and C club are able to keep this site.

Really enjoyed our 6 night stay here. Didn't have any problem with the toilets etc, they're adequate concidering the circumstances of the lease negotiations.

The wardens have put up notices to explain the problems with the lease, so the club is reluctant to invest in the site, but we found it brilliant.

The park and ride or the bus stop outside the site, are very handy, and free for bus pass users.

The walk to the river is a must, and a leaflet given on arrival explains directions how to get there and to two pubs.

Abingdon is very nice for a riverside picnic.

And we were amazed to see red kites circling didcot railway station, and surrounding area.

The locals are quite unphased by them ----- oh them things---yeh they're always over here. WHAT. We've never seen one ever.

Enjoy your stay.
