We stayed here for a couple of nights in early August and had a nice time. We arrived a few mins before 8pm, this is the cut off that the site managers allow you to come on to the site.

The site is located behind go outdoors and you drive through their carpark. The site has a barrier which you need a card for. I donít think we needed a deposit for the card. It was raining but we had no problems with traction on the grass pitch we were allocated and no sign of waterlogging. Water point was at the side of the road and easily accessible. Electric point was well within reach of the van.

The site roads whilst all tarmaced and smooth on the surface are very hilly. The site manager advised me of not going over the bumps on the internal roads and to take the main outside road to avoid any damage on the overhangs/steps.

As mentioned by others the toilet block is quite old but it was fully functional, you need a code from reception to access the block. We walked down to Oxford along the river which takes about 30mins and was pleasant.

There is a park and ride over the road from the site which we used on the way back. The park and ride has a higher vehicles/motorhome section to it if you visit Oxford on your last day after checkout of the site. There were a good mix of nationalities on site and units.

I cannot really understand why people have complained about this site. Yes it is a bit noisy with the railway, road & dairy nearby but it didn't spoil our sleep.

I also cannot understand complaints about the staff. It was raining when we arrived & some of the pitches were waterlogged but they found one for us that was not too bad & even helped to lay out my tent footprint. Thereafter they were really friendly and helpful.

The toilet/shower block is a bit dated but it was always clean & warm.

I joined the C&CC so that we could benefit from the discounts offered and, for the price we paid, I think I got a bargain.

As others have said, there is a nice walk along the Thames into Oxford or, if you are not up to walking, the park & ride is very close to the site.

There is a nice pub, about a half mile on the road into Oxford, which has very good food & drink, all at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit.

We would definitely use this site again.

Just had a couple of nights on this busy site.

Its in a very good location for Oxford and the surrounding area and although near main roads and railway not a problem.

Good park and ride into Oxford City and huge Sainsburys nearby.

Staff very good and work hard to keep the site up. One of the staff was found freshening up the mens showerblock at 0645 on a Sunday morning.

The site does lack from investment which can be seen in the tired shower block and fencing on the site.

Considering this is such a popular site with foreign visitors its not the best type of welcome to a CCC site if its their first visit.

It certainly does not set a good example.

A good site for a break in Oxford. The park and ride is across the road and GoOutdoors is next door which would be handy if you had forgotten anything.

The toilets are a bit dated but they were starting to do a limited update when I was there. But they need more than a minor make over. They are however spotless and credit to the wardens who were all friendly and helpful for keeping up the standards.

A nice level grassed area for the tent which was good.

The downside is the noise. The trains are not too bad but the dairy runs a chiller 24/7 giving a constant background hum and really gets busy with trucks being loaded from 9:00 at night to 3:00 in the norming.

Would I visit again probably not just too noisy for me.

In summary if you're looking for a site in Oxford and can put up with a fair bit of noise or have good earplugs then this site is ok for you. If you like peace and quiet for some relaxation then look elsewhere and drive to the park and ride to access Oxford.

Excellent staff struggling against poor facilities. Electricity problems mean that we were refunded fees (which apparently happens often). Clean but very dated sanitary block. Clearly no updating since opening even though a brilliant position in a lovely city.

Esay walk to Oxford. No children's playround. Strange access through go outdoors car park. Right next to park and ride makes it excellent for visitors to city centre. Good little shop for basics when camping.

We loved our visit here! The staff were lovely, and the site was fine. OK, so the facilities are a little dated, but they were clean, and heated, which were much appreciated in early May.

Camping with young children meant that we made good use of the neighbouring play ground. Not part of the site but easily reached.

To be honest, we spent little time on the site, but used it as a base. The children loved the walk along the Thames into Oxford.

Great for a weekend.
