To Find Site:- Leave A34 (Oxford Southern/Western Bypass) onto the A4142 signed for London. At the top of the slip road take turning to left following campsite and Park and Ride signs into Abingdon Road. Once over railway bridge look out for a blue building which is Go Outdoors. Turn down the side of the shop at the C&CC sign. Continue to the campsite at the end of the car park.

This campsite is set in an urban environment less than two miles from Oxford City Centre with easy access from the Oxford bypass. The site is open all year and accepts non-members. There are 90 grass pitches which do undulate a little so some levelling may be required. Over winter when weather conditions are bad the wardens may decide to position units on the tarmac site roads to avoid problems with getting stuck on the grass. Not all pitches have electrics so this must be specified when booking. Electric points are rated at 10 amps and use CEE 17 blue connectors. Water points are dotted around the campsite but grey waste can only be disposed of at the toilet block. The same is the case with chemical toilet emptying. Rather surprisingly, given the number of motorhomes that use the site there is no dedicated grey waste emptying point for motorhomes. You are required to decant waste water into a container to dispose of it. There is one central toilet block which is utilitarian rather than luxurious. In the same block is a laundry and a small information room. At the other end of the block are four washing up sinks which have overhead weather protection but are not fully enclosed. Rather strangely the four washing up sinks are separated by the (enclosed) chemical emptying point! Reception sells a few essentials. There is site wide WiFi and time can be purchased online. Not the fastest but it seem reasonably reliable. I managed to get good 4G coverage on my phone. There are no on site facilities for children but there is a public playground nearby. During our weekend visit we found the site quite peaceful but given its location there will be some rail and road noise.

The beauty of this site is its proximity the City of Oxford. The site also has excellent bus links into the City either from outside of the site or the Park and Ride which is a few minutesí walk away. The site is right next door to a branch of Go Outdoors so very handy if you need any camping essentials. About five minutesí walk along Abingdon Road is a Tesco Express for any basic food shopping. As to be expected there are many choices of restaurants for all tastes in the centre of Oxford. The refurbished Westgate shopping centre now contains a John Lewis store. The centre also has a roof terrace with lovely views over the city. The Tourist Information Centre is in Broad Street where you can find lots of information about Oxford and guides and maps are on sale. If you are a fan of Colin Dexterís Morse books reception will sell you a 50P guide to the locations used in the TV series.

This is the second time we've stayed at this campsite. The standard C&CC site rules apply. We braved sub zero temperatures overnight although thankfully there was a heater left on in the wash rooms. The toilet block, as clean as ever, but is still long overdue refurbishment.

We were directed to the tent area at top of the field alongside a hedge. The hedge had been recently cut and all the blackthorn clippings left across the pitches. Not helpful when on an air bed, so much time was spent clearing the site of these thorns before putting up the tent. Usual road and rail noise through the night.

Helpful staff, clean facilities, hot water, close to Park and ride (£4. 80 for 2 adults return), buses every few minutes, mini Tesco nearby, Duke of Monmouth pub nearby or a lovely walk beside the River Thames at Iffley Lock.

Still the best campsite for visiting Oxford.

Just spent two nights here.

PROS.

1. Staff friendly

2. Site well kept and in order

3. Next to 'go outdoors' (bonus) get discount if you are staying on site.

4. Pitches are quite spacious.

5. Easy access into Oxford and iffley village. Good walking along the Thames.

6. On site shop is ok.

CONS.

1. Its not a quite site positioned between marshalling yard and the roadway ( ear plugs recommended )

2. The ground is very uneven and lumpy.

3. The toilet block is very dated but it is functional.

Pro's

Nice little green site.

Although no hardstanding pitches full use is made of tarmac'd roads during our visit February visit.

Staff very friendly and helpful.

A large clean toilet/ shower block. No extra charge for shower water.

Oxford is an easy walk away. Bus stops are dotted around but the easiest to use by far is the park and ride number 300 bus.

There is a Go Outdoors shop at site entrance which is handy.

I like sites that keep the drinking water totally separate from the grey water. This site has the grey water emptying totally separate which is brilliant.

Cons

Yes even though it's a flat site you might need chocks as it does undulate.

There is a main railway one side, you will get some noise. On the whole the trains slide quietly through but sometimes if one is caught at a signal there might be extra noise.

There are a couple of factory units around, noise can come from these.

No motorhome service point

On the whole a really nice site, we will definitely be using it again.

After reading some negative reviews on this site we were a bit apprehensive on staying here but on the contrary we were pleasantly surprised, yes the toilet block has seen better days and the passing trains were a slight nuisance at night but we thought it was like a little wooded oasis sandwiched between a busy road and a railway and the slight noise didn't really bother us. Thought the staff worked hard after a very rainy night. For age concession bus pass holders the No. 35 to Oxford stops at the site entrance every 20 mins with return buses until late eve.

Why doesn't the Camping & Caravanning club do a bit of revamping the toilet block, it wouldn't cost that much to have wooden duck boards down in the shower cubicles to save you from standing in everyone's dirty water. I have seen bad toilets before but these are antiquated. I feel sorry for the staff that work there but couldn't fault them in any way. The site I must admit is well situated for getting into Oxford with the Park & Ride just across the road and it's only a 20 min. , walk into the the city itself by the river.
