 What a peaceful campsite!

What a gem.

The village in which it is set is beautiful with a pub.

The campsite is entered via a secure key coded gate. There are several very special small paddocks, set up for those with dogs, to have a secure free space for their dog to explore.

When you arrive on site the dogs in the nearby paddocks tended to bark, but once settled in, calm is restored!

The paddocks were a good size.

Some were on a slight slope, but ours required no levelling.

Due to Covid there were no toilet facilities which is understandable.

We were given a warm welcome and were given an information pack about the area which was very useful.

We found it a super spot with plenty of local walks.

Reviewer: Cjorda 1 review from this member

 This is an amazing site situated in a lovely quiet village.

Each pitch is its own fenced in field. If you have dog/s or small children it is perfect as they can't escape and get hurt.

There are 2 pitches that are big enough to have a family group of multiple caravans/tents.

Richard is helpful and very funny.

Reviewer: Kathy Sparrow10 10 reviews from this member

 We should have stayed 7 nights on this very pleasant site, however the weather wasn't very pleasant (torrential downpours) and the pitch became quite soggy so we came home early.

We had a few problems with our caravan whilst there but both Richard and Mike were extremely helpful.

We loved the fenced in pitches and there was a four mile circular walk straight from the site.

Unfortunately, due to Covid, the facilities were not open but it was a lovely site and we will be returning in the not too distant future.

 Two words - Perfect & Peaceful !

Your own paddock with gate - electric hookup and water.

Richard the owner goes above and beyond to help with any problems or questions you may have, also goes round disinfecting all gate handles etc helping to keep you safe.

Excellent free wi-fi (best I have ever had on a site)

Great walks around outside of the site.

And we are booked in again as my wife and I felt so relaxed here.

 Fabulous site and excellent dog facilities!

Each pitch (or paddock) has its own fence and gate, so this means our 4 legged friends can run around and play causing no concerns for their humans! It’d be amazing if all sites were like this!

Also great walks nearby.

 Excellent site for dogs and relaxation.

No toilet facilities due to covid but we knew this before arrival and have our own. Electric and water and waste facilities available.

Everyone was extremely friendly

Will definitely go again

Reviewer: Jobosan 1 review from this member

 As this was my first trip and I am a solo caravaner I did expect a few problems. That a how it turned out!

The site has a pleasant location in pretty gentle Oxfordshire hills. Plenty of wonderful country pubs within walking distance.

All the five pitches are grass and as the weather was awful access and departure was a challenge.

The motor movers were useful but they failed to get the caravan off the pitch.

Richard, who runs the site, saved the day with his tractor which got me onto level land and poised ready to depart.

It was of course a steep learning curve for me and and Richard was always about to help. I will visit again but when the weather improves and it is dryer under foot.

 This is a great site, the pitches are huge and each pitch has its very own large fenced garden. Absolutely perfect if you have a dog. We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

It's a perfect base for walking with lots directly from the site, there is of course the battlefield walks that take in the Battle of Edgehill there is also an award winning pub in the village that serves amazing local ales. The site is basic but has everything you need including a luxury portaloo.

The site is close to Banbury if you are in need of retail therapy. There are some lovely pubs within walking distance, ours is the Dunn Cow. This pub serves amazing home made meals, really worth the walk.

 My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights with our 4 dogs and we felt very welcome. Richard is a very nice host and we will return.

The facilities are basic, (fresh water, recycling bins, portaloo, hookup) yet adequate for our needs as we are self sufficient but it was lovely to have such a large pitch to ourselves so the dogs could be free and to have our own water tap on the pitch.

The area is excellent for walking with or without dogs and although nicely tucked away in the country, is within easy reach of town, shops etc.

No criticisms to make at all; this is exactly what we look for in a caravan site.

 What a gem of a site! Granted, not for those seeking swimming pools and clubhouses but if it is peace and quiet and a friendly atmosphere you desire then this is for you.

We were recommended, by word of mouth, to visit The Old Forge and it lived up to everything that was said about it. Richard – the owner – was friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him to ensure that we (and everyone else) had a pleasant time.

Often we have visited sites that profess to be ‘dog friendly’ only to find that the dog has to be kept on a lead at all times and the dog walking facilities are all but non existent; the Old Forge is different: each caravan has its own secure and fenced off area where your ‘best friend’ can be safely left to play. Yes. We will be back. 10/10
