Basic, large grounds so plenty of space between units even though it was a bank holiday weekend. No shower block but we were told that when booking. Flat level ground. Friendly easy going owner. There is a tea room and home made icecream! A few animals in field next door, horses and lambs, great for kids. Would stay again. People have said about the noise from the A34, personally I can't understand the complaint. If you don't like road noise, perhaps it's best not to stay there then? It didn't bother me at all.

Great little site, hm well I say site more of a field behind the ice cream cafe, but perfect for the money and location.

The owners were friendly and helpful.

The field was well kept and had some lovely views, loads of wildlife. Cost was £17. 50 for our camper with EHU, which these days I don't think is to bad.

The cafe opens between 9-5 and serves all kinds of things from ice cream to Jam.

Facilities are fine, but do show signs of ageing, but were always clean and tidy. In the mens you had 1 urinal, 2 toilets and 1 shower, which was more than enough when we stayed as there were only 10-12 units on the site. There is a washing up area with plenty of hot water, and a chemical toilet point.

As mentioned before, you can hear the road noise, but its more of just a background noise and in no way does it cause any problems.

A good site in a great location only a few miles from Oxford, definitely one to remember in the future while on our travels.

Good site. Loved the ice cream. Nice clean facilities, toilet, shower, wash-up area. Quiet when we were there, we went down one corner of the field and there were only a couple of other people on site.

Nice bit of wildlife to keep the kids entertained, including a resident red kite which was flying low over the site throughout - cows, rabbits, sparrow hawk.

Went for a walk to the Ben Johnson pub nearby which had a pleasant family garden, Weston on the Green has little more than a village shop which opens infrequently.

The traffic noise is constant - didn't really bother us though and the motorway isn't particularly in view. There's not a great deal of shelter though and it was quite exposed to wind, so be careful if your tent isn't pretty low/robust, and definitely pack a windbreak if you have one.

All said - we liked it and would go back.

We were cycle touring with the family and the 'Ice Cream Farm' sign appeared at about 3pm on a very hot day when we were just about ready to collapse! We were very pleased to find we could stay after scoffing the delicious ice cream from the shop. As we were passing through, the location was ideal (right on the NCN route 54 near Walton on the Green), but as it sits next to an A road and has constant traffic noise, this would not be a 'destination' camping spot for us. The field was large and flat, and not crowded.

Showers and toilets were OK: not pristine, but really good hot water, which was all we really wanted.

A small village shop about 5 mins walk away provided the basic food we needed. The owner indicated that the farm shop/cafe would be open and serving food from 9am, so we considered buying a cooked breakfast before we took off the next morning. Luckily we didn't wait for it, as we left at 9:20am and it was still not open. At £14.50 for 2 small tents with no electric, and on a busy road, it was a little more expensive than some sites, but it served our purposes well and we felt lucky to have found just the right thing when we really needed it.

Nice site very basic just a field behind some barns and a lovely ice cream shop. The showers were good lots of hot water. Nice walk up the road to a very pretty village with thatched cottages and a paper shop, for anything else you need a car as the nearest tesco is about 4 miles away.

Down side was the noise from the A34 it was a constant annoying noise but for £12.50 a night it was a good 2 days of sitting in a field doing nothing with the dog !

It's a lovely quiet site, with adequate facilities. Only 2 ladies showers and toilets, but I never had to queue. They were also clean.

Good value for money too, We only paid £16.50 per night with EHU.

We were given a pitch on the edge of the site, and had a large area all to ourselves all weekend.

Friendly owners and delicious ice cream.

Would definitely visit again, if in area.
