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.

We'd read that the facilities building was not as modern as on other club sites. We'd agree with these comments, although the site staff clearly work hard at keeping the block clean (one of the cleanest facilities blocks I've used) and everything was in good working order. The staff were in winter pitching mode keeping units on the tarmac roads rather than on the grass - another way the club could invest in the site by adding proper hard standing pitches? However the system in use appeared to be keeping the grass as in tact as possible. The site is close to a main train line and there was some noise although this did not affect us as it was quieter than the train line we live next to. It didn't feel like an urban site due to the ducks, the streams either side of the site and being set well back from the road. Very convenient for seeing Oxford thanks to the close proximity to the Park and Ride service which runs until late most days.
Only negatives are really based in the club neglecting financial investment in the site - create hard standings and a better facilities (motorhome service point would also help) and this site would easily match other club sites we've stayed at.

Excellent welcome and good location for visiting Oxford, but the facilities are a big let down,
Ideal for anyone wishing to explore Oxford and region. Local shops are very convenient. Very friendly and helpful site wardens. A very attractive location for a holiday, highly recommended.

Stayed here in September. Site is ideally placed for visiting Oxford as its within walking distance (for the fit) but 2mins walk to the park and ride and also on a public bus route. There's a Tesco nearby plus Post Office and a couple of pubs who do meals.
The showers however were desperately in need of updating. They were cold and walls ran with condensation when used after a few folk. The cubicles themselves were small and if not mopped out you were literally stood in standing water from the previous occupant - not very hygienic. It rained quite bit so the pitch we were on became boggy with the groundsheet under 2 inches of water - brilliant !!!!!!!!! But if these faults were addressed this site would be spot on for visiting Oxford.
