Ideal for visiting Oxford. Take a lovely flat walk along riverside or catch bus at end of the road. Wardens pleasant, helpful and informative.

Shower block dated but was clean and showers were hot. Grass pitches with hook ups were spacious but not always flat.

Lots of rain when we stayed and pitches were getting very boggy. Site shop sells basics, books, and local information leaflets available.

Good pub nearby which sold good food reasonably priced and fish and chip shop both within walking distance.

No problem with noise. Occasional train and traffic noise which did not disturb us.

Would stay again

Perfect site for visiting the city of Oxford.

Nice welcome by the staff, escorted to pitch which was on the one of the link roads (all campers are required to do this during the wet months but no problems)hookup is 10amps, little shop on site which sells the basics. Showers were clean, hot & working well but getting dried is race against time before being frozen - no heating! No motorhome drain point back to the bucket again for us lot. Train noise but not overwhelmingly so.

Nice pub up the road serving cheap meals, chip shop is very good as well, tried them both. Paper shop next door. Park & drive across the road £2. 00 return or walk the river into the city, very pleasant.

Apart from the shower block this is a good site

I know there are a lot of comments about traffic noise, but thatís what you get for a CITY centre site. If youíre in a caravan, then itís unnoticeable, but if you need peace and quiet in a tent, then choose another site and travel in to Oxford each day. Right outside the site is a bus stop and we never waited longer than 10 minutes for a bus and then itís less than 10 minutes into Oxford city centre. There is also a great childrenís playground within 5 minutesí walk. The other added bonus is that there is a Go Outdoors right next to the site so if you break anything, then youíre in luck. Donít rely on your Sat Nav for this site because itís only sign posted from one side Ė just look out for Go Outdoors instead opposite the park and ride and the site is behind Go Outdoors. A nice, clean toilet block and very friendly staff. Our first visit to a Camping and Caravan Club site and weíre glad we paid for our membership. We will definitely use this site again if we want to visit Oxford.

We stayed on this site for one night. The wardens were extremely helpful and friendly, and the site is very well situated for easy access to the city of Oxford.

The pitches were not private, but this did not concern us at all. However, the shower block was extremely shabby and my husband was unable to use the showers in the mens shower block.

The gulleys were choked with brown sludge and there appeared to be a problem with the water draining away. Not pleasant.

We would not wish to stay here again and were surprised that this was a Camping and Caravan Club site - definitely not up to an acceptable standard.

If you want a city break in Oxford this is the campsite for you, easy to find right behind a large 'go outdoors' store so if you forget to take anything its on site.

Access to Oxford is so easy as there's a park and ride bus station accross the the road or if the weather is fine there's a lovely river walk into town passing a beautiful pub right on the river (takes about 25mins).

The site is an oasis of calm after coming off the main Oxford road, there is some traffic noise and there's also a train line quite close, neither of these bothered us, might be different if your in a tent.

The site is kept in immaculate order by the very friendly and helpful staff, toilets are a bit dated but kept very clean, my one and only small gripe is being a club site is the price, if your not a member the price is loaded by about £7 a night.

If I had been staying any longer than 2 nights I would have joined but wasn't offered the chance to save money when booking.

As usual for a C&CC site, the welcome was warm, the wardens wonderful and the administration was efficient.

However, there is no mistaking that this Site is not up to the C&CC standard. It is let down by a toilet block that is well overdue for a total refurbishment.

Several toilets would not flush properly, the toilet cubicles were very small, the showers were under-powered and feeble. There were no private wash cubicles.

There was a big mixture of different toilet seats, and taps - even on the same basin. There was no hairdryer (not that I use one on site but it does indicate the underpar facilities).

Oxford is a magnet for tourists and I think this site could put off tourists wanting to stay at other Camping and Caravanning Clubs. I presume there must be a major reason why this site is not up to standard.

It would be useful if some explanation could be put up to reassure and encourage us to bear with the problems and await a new improved 'Friendly' Site.
