The pitch we were given was up behind the wall away from the main area. The electric hookup line had to be put over the wall meaning we had to walk back around the wall to plug in. This led us (& the other five motorhome owners put behind the wall) to believe this area was really for tents. Not the best position on the site, especially for the single elderly disabled lady in the next motorhome who had quite a walk to the facilities. Three people complained about the position, only one was moved, the other two felt one of the lady wardens very unhelpful. However the gentleman warden who collected the daily papers was very pleasant.

There is a lovely pub in Chadlington village, the Tite Inn. About a mile down the road from the site. Had to walk along the road which was too dangerous to walk back in the dark. The landlady very kindly gave us a lift back on the two occasions we visited. Really nice people, excellent food & a wonderful beer garden. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely site, friendly staff, possibly the cleanest and tidiest site I have ever been to! Sadly no ball games and no open space for the children to play. Mine are a little old to be entertained by a playground.

Not loads to choose from in the surrounding area but close to all the picturesque villages and a couple of nice NT places.

Local falconry center was amazing!

To Find Site:- From Chipping Norton take A361 towards Burford. Watch out for A361 veering off to right and take left turn signed to Chadlington, site also signed, and site is a couple of hundred metres on the right.

This site is situated in open countryside about two miles south of Chipping Norton. It is bordered by the A361 so there will be some daytime noise but this reduces quite a lot by nightfall. The site is open to non-members. It looks as if the site road infrastructure has had a recent upgrade with newly tarmacked roads in the main part of the site with foot wide gravel borders, I assume to soak up excess rainfall? There are 105 pitches, set out in two areas, the main one in front of the reception and a separate higher section along the top end of the site and this is where most of the non-electric pitches are. In common to most C&CC sites are a mix of hardstandings with electrics, grass with electric and grass with no electrics. Most pitches are sloping although some more than others so some levelling will be required. Electric points are handy to the pitches and they use CEE 17 blue plugs and are rated at 16 amps. Water points are situated near the entrance and at the facility block as is grey water disposal. Please note this site does not have a motorhome service point although if you have a waste water carried this can be used at the normal grey water disposal points. The toilet block is of the older variety and whilst perfectly clean and serviceable is not as luxurious as some. The block also contains a laundry, with drying lines behind the block, and dishwash area, it would benefit from a refurbishment. For children there is a nice looking adventure type playground. There is site wide WiFi and time can be purchased online. Reception sells a few essentials as well as Calor Gas there is also a book swap. Next door is a small information room.

The traditional Cotswold market town of Chipping Norton is a couple of miles away by road, perhaps more difficult on foot because of lack of footpaths, and is well worth a visit. For those not wanting to use their own transport there is an hourly weekday bus service from immediately outside the campsite entrance although it does not run much into the evening. In the other direction the bus goes to Witney. All parts of the Cotswold are within easy reach of this campsite. For eating out opportunities there is a large choice in Chipping Norton and there is also a nice Co-Op supermarket there to.

As you will note from the site map, this is on a corner between the A361 (Chipping Norton to Burford) and the B4026 (Chadlington and other villages). We were given the choice of hardstanding pitches but none of these - and we suspect grass pitches aren’t much better - are out of earshot of the boy racers and bikers ignoring the warnings of how many fatalities there have been on these roads. The C&CC should not imply the site gives ‘peace and tranquillity’. That said, the newly revamped pitches and site roadways are good despite most still needing levelling devices. Pity they didn’t go the extra mile and include fully-serviced pitches. The site location is good for the attractions of the Cotswolds.

Not sure what to say about the staff – they didn’t strike us as ‘the friendly club’ material. We asked about buying some food items and were told to go into Chipping Norton. However, we found fantastic little shops and a café down the road in Chadlington when we saw the signs to them on the board outside the site. There was no positive attitude to guest support. They equally made no attempt to recommend any other local facilities - we found the beautifully refurbished Tite Inn ourselves.

As at the club’s Bala site, we found the washroom facilities adequate but cold and basic. Shower cubicles were so small that when the water flowed the curtain was drawn in to touch you. There were inadequate areas to keep shoes and clothing dry. The washing-up area is in the open, with single-drainer sinks next to each other with no separating worktops - where are you expected to put dirty dishes and dried dishes?

There is no motorhome service point as such, but we were offered the loan of a bucket. Strangely, there is what looks very much like an MHS at the site barrier but to use it they would have to keep the barrier up and no-one would be able to drive in or out.

The on-site dog walk is adequate for their essentials. There are good unfenced field tracks to the left of the site entrance and a very good public bridleway just the other side of the A361 accessed by a gate at the western end of the site.

Fantastic site.

Wardens and staff very helpful and friendly.

Clean site despite older type shower facilities. Couldn't fault cleanliness, shame they shut to clean late morning as that's when most people are getting ready to leave and 'pop to the loo'. So you all end up queueing at the one disabled loo instead.

Bus stop right outside the site which is good.

Across a busy road there is a bridle way to off lead walk your dogs in safety.

Units are close but not too bad.

Overall, fantastic.

Lovely, friendly campsite. We arrived in the pouring rain and promptly got stuck in the mud! Everyone was so helpful and we were swiftly pulled out. The facilities were lovely and clean and despite how wet and cold it was we had a really nice time. Loads of hot water in the showers was a nice bonus!

The village of Chadlington is about a mile down the road. No path unfortunately. The local pub, The Tite Inn, is dog and children friendly. Fantastic garden and kid's play area. Drinks and food were on the pricey side though. Two great little shops were in the village with really friendly staff.

Fish and chip van was at the site on the Saturday night. Not the biggest portion I've ever had but very nice. We're definitely going for another visit but hopefully we will get some sunshine next time.
