Overview

Our site a mile from the attractions of Oxford city. Catch a bus from outside the site.

City break or countryside adventure, the choice is yours if you camp at our Oxford Club campsite. Located just a mile outside the centre of Oxford, the campsite is the perfect base for exploring the magnificent city of dreaming spires. Camping in Oxford doesn't get any better than this.

It’s hard to believe this pleasant bolt hole is so close to the city. It's restful ambience makes it ideal to kick back and relax after a day pounding the streets of Oxford. Trees line this well laid out site, pitches are level and a good range of facilities are available.

Walk, cycle or catch the bus (there’s a stop right outside the site) into the city and you’ll find plenty to see and do. Don’t miss the University Museum of Natural History (the most complete remains of any single dodo are here) and the Pitt Rivers and Ashmolean Museums, the latter has 67 galleries to explore. A guided walking tour is the best way to see the University colleges and botanic Garden. There are themed tours too including an Inspector Morse and a Harry Potter Tour. And a punt on the River Cherwell is a must.

The countryside around Oxford has its own delights. Not to be missed is the magnificent Baroque house – Blenheim Palace and its fine parkland in Woodstock. The Oxfordshire Museum is here too and tells the story of Oxfordshire through its galleries and exhibitions. The Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens is also worth a visit.

This really is the best of all the campsites in Oxford.

This review is for Oxford

Location to Oxford is great with a bus stop(no.35) outside and the Park&Ride 5mins walk. Buses run nearly 24hrs. Oxfords main sites are easily walkable with a climb up to the roof of St.Michaels to see the dreaming spires. If you enjoy a pint a visit to the Grapes and the Chequers is a must both old and quirky. Abingdon, Water Perry Gardens and Dorchester on Thames are all worth a visit.

This was the first time we had visited this Oxford campsite.

This review is for Oxford

This was the first time we had visited this Oxford campsite. Unfortunately the site entrance comes up very quickly after the railway bridge and it is very easy to miss the entrance on the left as we did. Perhaps if we had known it was behind the Go Outdoors camp shop (which was excellent, by the way) and almost opposite the recycling centre and more important just where the bus lane starts we might not have overran it by a few yards. We tried to go in the 2nd entrance but that turned out to be the exit and it was too difficult to take the sharp corner to enter the site. In the end we went out again and found somewhere to turn the caravan around and re-entered through the correct entrance which was then very easy. We were met by two extremely friendly Wardens who allowed us to park in a very good spot and stay connected to our caravan as we were leaving the next day. The information leaflet was one of the best I have read which was informative and honest. The campsite has tired facilities but the toilets and showers are very clean and warm. The reception is very good and the shop is adequate for the site as (so the instructions say) a Tesco store is only about quarter of mile away and camping items only next door. Instructions are also clearly given about walking to the footpath along side the Thames into Oxford which was great for us with the dog. Also the pub beside the bridge at the end of the walk before going into the city centre, was dog friendly - a must for us! We were also given details about a short dog walk across the road which was easy to find. All in all we would definitely use this site again as it was very convenient for Oxford city and dog friendly.

This review is for Oxford

This site is in such a great position for visiting Oxford it is a shame that the Club can not get a long term lease so that they can upgrade the very poor facilities block. It was good to read the reasons for this on site - something I have wondered about for a long time. The HSMs are so friendly and work so hard to keep the facilities clean, but sadly they are fighting a losing battle. Would it be worthwhile having a petition to put pressure on Go Outdoors to grant the club a long term lease so that it would be worth spending money to up-grade? Thanks to the HSMs for a great weekend.

Pros: Friendly staff who frankly have a thankless task.

This review is for Oxford

Pros: Friendly staff who frankly have a thankless task. Good for access to city centre and buses. Cons: The site has seen better days. Whilst it is understandable that as site is on an annual lease the Club is unable to make any substantial investment considering the charges that is no excuse for doing nothing. Even a lick of paint and a tidy up would do wonders. I shudder to think of the impression it gives to foreign visitors. As it is, it continues to deteriorate
