Why stay here ...

Our flat green field site is located on the outskirts of Dorchester on Thames with its picturesque abbey and former coaching inns. Our local market towns are Abingdon and Wallingford which are both a 10 to 15 minute drive. Oxford city with its dreaming spires, museums, restaurants and bars is a 10 minute drive and our local bus service (within walking distance of the site) gives easy access if you want to leave the car behind. This is a great site to use as a base to explore the surrounding Oxfordshire countryside, much of which is regularly used as TV and film locations.

Our fresh water point and disposal point are tucked in one corner of the field and feel free to look at our shepherds hut. 

A great location with easy access for exploring this part of Oxfordshire including:

  • Dorchester-on-Thames with it's Abbey and former Coaching Inns.
  • Clifton Hampden with its beautiful thatched cottages.
  • Wittenham Clumps dating from Roman times.
  • Wallingford Town and its castle ruin.
  • River walks.
  • The dreaming spires of Oxford
  • Local pubs and shops.
  • Public transport nearby.
  • A friendly welcome.

We look forward to meeting you.

A lovely break

Arrived on the 8/10/19 and stayed for a week. On arrival we were greeted at the gate by Andy in the pouring rain. The site has plenty of space so we were not pitched too close to one another. Plenty to do in the area. Bus route in and out of Oxford very good. Thanks to Andy for his local knowledge and his recommendations to the local pubs. A clean and tidy site with good water facilities and CDP. The only disappointment was the weather which Andy could not help!! Looking forward to returning in the Spring.

Fab CL loads of space great host

We stayed three nights mid week and had the site to ourselves. Directions were spot on and Andy met us at the secure gate. His enthusiastic and informative welcome was superb and only matched by the availability of where to pitch. Water and recycling all close to entry/exit and a good info sheet supplied. EHU spread round the site allowing pitching anywhere. Quiet and peaceful with occasional motorbike noise. Our dog loved the open space Good bus links to Oxford and elsewhere and Andy has fantastic local knowledge. A great basic CL in a good location

A Real Gem of a CL

Stayed here for 2 nights mid-week to break up our journey down to the New Forest from Lincolnshire. A very spacious grass site, with EHU. The owner, Andy, is a lovely fella. He is very knowledgeable about the local area, and his enthusiasm and friendliness shine through. We spent most of our full day there in and around Dorchester-on-Thames, which is a quaint place. Will definitely return - so many places to visit in the area. Thoroughly recommended. Dan & Sharon Apps.

Great CL

Well, when it comes to writing reviews, I think it comes down to two headings, (a) Factual information (b) Personal opinion. So to address the first category, I find that there is little that I can add to the two previous reviews, both accurate in their description of this great site. The site is huge and offers plenty of choice of where you set up and having done so, you get a real feeling of space and privacy. The toilet emptying point is purpose built and easy to use. The water pressure is good which makes filling your containers very swift, a good thing when it’s raining! With regards to the other reviews. I’d like to add that Henley-on-Thames is 20 minutes away with two National Trust properties in between, Nuffield Place (the home of William Morris, Lord Nuffield) and Greys Court, a 16th century mansion. In the other direction towards Reading is Basildon Park. For those with a serious shopping habit, Bicester Shopping Centre is half an hour away. So, personal opinion next. Andy is an excellent host and spends lots of time with all his guests imparting his local knowledge and enthusiasm for the area in a very friendly manner. That’s it really, only to add that we will return and highly recommend this CL to all members. Good luck Andy

Fantastic find

Needed site within easy distance of Abingdon and Burcot Brook Lodge was ideal. Lots of space and peaceful site,ideal for a retired couple like us or for a family giving plenty of room for children to play without being near other outfits. Good for dogs. Qiuck call to Andy when about 10 mins away resulted in him greeting us personally and showed us where things were and the gate code. He is knowledgeable about the area...wildlife,places to go and local pubs. Liked it so much we have already booked a return visit in September. Ieuan and Pam
