 Spent wife's birthday weekend here Friday to Sunday, cycled into Banbury on the Saturday, and back down the canal path which was tricky.

The site is basic as it says on all the info. The site also slopes, again its on all their info. We were welcomed and booked in with ease, the shop is well stocked and has all the basics and more.

The bar and food were not open when we were there but the shop sold beer wine and cider so no worries there. It was lovely to see the piggies and watch their antics.

All in all a great site if you want some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of life, but don't expect any frills its why we went there.

We got stuck when we were leaving no worries the owner came over with his little tractor and bulled out a 4 ton motor home with ease.

 Great shop, cafe and small bar. Sofas by the water each with BBQ, fab.

No showers. Boo.

Chemical toilets. Although not ideal they were kept clean and well supplied with paper and hand sanitizer.

 Great little place right by the canal

Very friendly owners and very dog friendly

They have lovely sofas and fire pits by the canal which is lovely

There are 3 portaloos but it was fine there are no showers but not a problem for a couple of nights, itís camping after all

Farm shop is lovely and the pork chops go down well on a bbq

The cafe trailer does a lovely breakfast at reasonable price and trotters bar is great and good price

Overall a lovely place for a couple of nights

 This site has everything going for it. Lovely owners, great surroundings, an on site bar, well stocked on site shop, a hot-tub (if you like that sort of thing), a canal to sit by.

, we couldn't stay. The site is not suitable for large motorhomes or caravans. The 'gently sloping, ridge and furrow' landscape (which isn't gentle) makes it easy to 'ground' and impossible to level.

The water supply is gravity fed from a bore hole and has no pressure to fill onboard tanks and even filling an aqua-roll is 'painfully' slow.

This IS really a great site, but only for tents and small motorhomes.

 I loved this site but I had all the facilities I needed in my campervan, there are only festival style toilets on this site. There is a fantastic shop with everything you need, a food van selling a delicious selection of food and a bar, all overlooking the canal and local countryside.

There are sofas dotted about and fire pits where you can purchase some wood and sit in front of a fire in the early evening, I imagine it will be lovelier in the summer when the nights are warmer. And to make this site even better were the pigs! #

They have some rare Oxford sandy blacks, so cute. Considering we were parked next to the animals there wasn't a bad smell and they weren't noisy either. You can walk into Banbury along the canal, takes a couple of hours or walk the other way for half hour to a pub.

Great place for adults and dogs! The staff were very nice always willing to chat especially about the pigs.

 What a fantastic place. Welcoming hosts and relaxing and tranquil(due to being child-free) location by the canal. The food was delicious and the farm shop had a good range of gorgeous high-quality stuff.

I would highly recommend hiring the hot tub.

We loved every moment there.

 After reading the reviews I booked 3 nights stay at the Pig Place and was really looking forward to a relaxing stay, walks along the canal etc. As soon as I arrived the constant noise from the M40 was an issue. The owner said it was only due to wind direction. Trains then thundered past and I realised this was not a great choice of campsite. After a sleepless night due to the constant traffic noise I spoke to the owner and explained that I had to leave and asked if it was possible to be refunded any of the costs? (£60 paid for 3 nights) She said not as she had turned down bookings as we were here. I looked online and saw pitches were still available so felt very disappointed. Even if the extra car charge of £5 per night had been refunded I would have been happy. Please do NOT pay this extra charge as you can leave your vehicle in the huge layby just outside the gate. This is clearly a money making venture and I was bitterly disappointed. I can recommend this site if you are a townie who doesn't mind your personal space being invaded and would like to see pigs, chickens and ducks you will love it but if you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful, get away from it all break, don't bother! I found a wonderful site on a working farm not too far away, half the price (with no charge for an extra vehicle)and quiet with acres of space and had a wonderful stay.

 What a great find, very much back to basic living perfect, very friendly.

Loved the pig feeding in the mornings plus great cafe (fab coffee)

A must have if you love pigs, chickens, duck.

There is no showers & only 1 toilet but not an issue for a couple of nights.

Thank you loved our weekend

I have given site facilities 10 out of 10 as you got what it says

 What a FANTASTIC site. Stayed here with daughter (young adult) for 2 nights. We loved it!

A beautiful setting, very relaxed, enjoyed breakfast from the food van each morning.

Our most favourite bit was sitting on the sofa overlooking the canal, particularly in the evenings with a pit fire.

Can't recommend The Pig Place enough!

 We arrived early afternoon on the Sunday at the end of half term holiday. We were welcomed by the owner and shown around the basic facilities ( we knew what to expect as the website explains it. So no problem there)

The site is gently sloping but with enough places to find a flat spot.

This is a working smallholding, so there are pigs, sheep, fascinating ducks, hens and dogs. We also spotted kestrels, buzzards, bats, and birds too numerous to mention.

The site is situated on the canal, with the motorway and railway nearby, there was some noise but not enough to bother us and we had a great nights sleep.

Plentyof walking along the canal (the pub is about 1/2 hour stroll along the canal bank, and excellent it was too)

All in all a basic site but with the animals and the welcoming and helpful owners a great place to stay for a couple of days.

Highly recommend this place, if we are ever in the area again we will be back.
