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

This is an old site that needs a revamp, because of the ground being owned by the local council this has not happened yet but once it is done this site will be one of the best. The site is very clean and very easy to get to a Go Outdoors shop is on the site and thus us a bonuse. We had a very pleasant stay. The train line runs quit close to the site so if you love trains they go by quite often but we did not find the noise of them going by intrusive at all. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is not a very big site so early booking is advisable as it fills up quickly. Will visit again as it is only an hour and a half from Southampton.

We arrived at the site and we found it was not clearly signposted.

This review is for Oxford

We arrived at the site and we found it was not clearly signposted. We were placed on the road for the night, near the train station, freight depot and a milk distribution company. . The noise was so bad that we found it impossible to sleep. The toilet block is in need of upgrading and new showers. All the water from each shower goes into the adjoining cubicle and it is impossible to place any belongings on the floor. It is also very cold in the toilet block and the roof leaks. There is no atmosphere in the campsite and it is not a place to go for a relaxing break. However, it is convenient for visiting Oxford as the park and ride is nearby. I am a new member and was expecting a far higher standard from The Camping & Carananning Club.

Easy approach from motorways but awkward and narrow entranceway into site beside Go Outdoors. Staff very accommodating and site facilities clean but tired. Easy very regular bus access to Oxford centre.

Booked late and no electric hookup available.

This review is for Oxford

Booked late and no electric hookup available. Thought that was strange for mid week this time of year and then realised this must be one of the busiest club sites out of season. Camper vans eventually everywhere and all available EHU's taken. Pitches are grass so motor homes are parked on the drives around the site. Fortunately we are set up to be stand alone so not a problem. The campsite is a little worn but the information says they are in limbo with the council I believe over their long term future so investment is in hold. The only real issue I had was the showers and that was the caused by the amount of water they put out and drainage. Great whilst in the shower but you will need to stand in 5mm of water whilst you dry. A small duckboard is required. Mind you, never stopped me having a daily shower :). The site is ideal for Oxford City centre as its right next to the park and ride car park. Bus 300 is what you require but there are several park and ride so just beware. Service 35 goes between Oxford and Abingdon and picks up and drops outside. Just ask for Go Outdoors as the campsite is behind it. I'm told that both buses take bus passes but I can only confirm the 35.
