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.

This site is what you'd expect from a Club site - clean showers and toilets, helpful staff, chemical disposal and fresh water.

There was also a small shop and reception with local info and WiFi is available at a cost.

You can walk to a nearby bus stop and catch a bus into Oxford. It's a great city for shopping and the bus tour gives a good flavour of what there is to do and see. There's also plenty of nice places to eat.

The site can be quite busy and there isn't always tons of room around your pitch. Generally, a great site.

We used this site as a stop off on our return from Devon to visit friends in Oxford for 2 nights. The site was easy to find but the entrance throws you as it is the entrance to a large 'Go Outdoors' superstore, behind here is the site entrance. If you are new to camping & caravanning this site is ideal as you can by everything you did not know you needed!

The staff were very friendly & helpful & showed us to our pitch, 2 minutes walk from the site was the bus stop on the Abingdon road that could take you in to explore Oxford & 5 minutes from the site was a small 'Nisa' shop selling the important essentials.

My criticism of the site is with the facilities block as this was very 1960's & the water pressure & heat was non existent for the showers in both the male & female units.

Overall this is probably the cheapest way to explore Oxford costing our family of 4 just over 30 for a Friday & Saturday stay, we may use again if visiting but overall we felt a little let down by the C&CC facilities as these wre not as we expected.

Reviewer: Anniehall293 6 reviews from this member

Just had a family gathering at the site, the wardens were very accommodating at placing us all quite close to each other which was appreciated however the noise at night was unbearable, we expected traffic noise as you would in a city but the site backs onto a dairy which comes to life at around 2100, it was heard even with ear plugs in, to top it off there is also a train line nearby to ensure you really don't sleep for long.

I would never go back. What I thought was strange was that tents were sited nearest the dairy and the caravans and motorhomes were sited furthest away, it should be the other way round to give the tent occupants a chance to sleep.

The toilet and shower facilities are nice and clean but they close for 1 and a half hours with no alternative toilets to use, which is unacceptable as young children do not understand this.

If you intend to go with a motorhome or campervan, there are no facilities to get rid of your waste water.
