This is an ideal site to explore Oxford from. As previously explained, the facilities require updating (ongoing issues with the landlords are preventing further investment) but they are well maintained and kept clean and tidy. Both the railway line and main road run nearby so don't expect peace and quiet but you can't be this close to the city centre without some noise. There is a mini Tesco's and fast food outlet a short walk away. The Duke of Monmouth does an excellent pie and chips and good beer too. To get to town, walk by the road or river, or take the park n' ride bus. About 5. 00 for two adults return.

The wardens were attentive and helpful. They even put on a small Halloween party! We enjoyed a very comfortable stay for a couple of nights (17 / night for two plus tent). Come here to do the Oxford experience and soak up the university town atmosphere.

Visited the site Sept 2015 for a single night. Booked via the usual very good C&CC site app.

Warm welcome - found the site easily with google maps - situated behind a Go Outdoors. Felt a bit 'urban' at first but wasn't that bad - I suppose we are next to a city ;)

Was shown to pitch by a friendly chap. We decided to go non-hook up so was pitched towards the back of the site. No real choice of pitches and felt slightly more cramped that we are used to.

I also believe from chatting to a chap on the Sunday morning this is used as a stop gap for students and lecturers without accommodation while they find digs (based on a conversation I had with a lecturer who rolled in at 1am !)

Bit of train noise which stopped at 11. 30pm and could hear the dairy 'hum' but I think previous reviews have made a bit of a meal of how bad it is. Not bad at all.

What sets this site apart from the rest of the C&CC club sites is the huge canyon between this site's facilities and the usual club site standard. For this reason I think it should be reclassified. This is no fault of the owners more of Go-Outdoors - especially as they seem ' a corporate partner' and no doubt they get their fair share of passing trade by patrons of the site ! To be fair it's stated upfront and previous reviews have highlighted.

Bathrooms are functional - but only so. I would shower, but only if I had to, but the experience wouldn't be anything but that. They did smell a bit despite the efforts of the owners - just the age of the building fabric I think. I think I`m going to go to world of camping and yeomans instead :)

On to what to do. Nice walk into Oxford besides the river, or you may want to ride a bicycle. 30-40 mins stroll and a very nice one too - you may even see a rowing competition. Similarly good bus link into oxford.

Would recommend the colleges. We grabbed a couple but would go back.

Very good welcome and expert help backing up our caravan to pitch. All flat, good sized, grass pitches. Facilities clean but a bit dated. Easy route when towing, all main roads. Some noise from trains but did not bother us. Good site to visit Oxford. Bus stops close and lots of buses to the city. When driving, Oxford has one way systems and road closures at present, so not good for strangers. Large Sainsbury about two miles away with cheap fuel. Small Tesco close to site.

Just spent a fortnight on this site, all the facilities are more than adequate and are kept lovely and clean, nice to have showers that don't keep timing themselves out when you use them, the site staff work hard and are extremely helpful.

The site itself is easy to get to and is within easy walking distance of the city centre, or if you prefer there is a park and ride close by and the bus stop is just around the corner.

Will be visiting again in 2016.

Clean and comfortable site. Very easy to walk into Oxford City centre along the river. There is nothing wrong with the shower/toilet block. Staff were friendly and helped with our request for 2 pitches together. We had the front ones, opposite the reception and they were fine. There is some road noise, being so close to city, but didn't bother us at all. A Tesco express is within easy walking distance, along with a reasonable pub! Nice site, and would use again.

Reviewer: Mmcglynn 1 review from this member

We stayed here in june 2015 and found it good its a little run down as the land owners are being a little difficult with the club so as regards investment in the site its on hold, so

Dont expect usual top class facilities however they are functional. Just a few mins walk from the site is a supermarket and a bus stop to Oxford town centre and its many delights the site wardens were friendly and knowledgeable the site shares an entrance with Go Outdoors who own the land, at times we found the site a little noisy as the railway line borders the site and I think the line was being upgraded, try not to camp directly under the trees at the back of the site as there are many birds in the trees and I saw a few tents with large deposits on them, overall I would use this site again as I enjoyed my stay. Oxford is a most interesting place to visit I liked the Ashmolean Museum.
