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.

Another great CL

Burcot Brook Lodge
First small bit of advice:- after leaving Abingdon and travelling EAST towards the Compass Inn it is above 6/7 miles so don't worry. This is another really nice very spacious site which is well kept by a very friendly and accommodating couple. The pull in onto the site is long enough to take a long outfit while waiting for your hosts to open the gate for you. If you like really top class food try the Compass, it's not cheap but it is very very good. There are also excellent watering holes in Dorchester a pleasant walk away.

Burcot Brook Lodge
We enjoyed this lovely CL so much when we visited earlier this year that we just had to return, this time for an 8-night break. Lovely countryside location yet very easy access to Abingdon, Dorchester and Oxford. Nature all around including the mew of the kites overhead, the gentle tapping of woodpeckers, the sight of geese in flight, it’s all there. From the warm welcome to the fond goodbye we enjoyed every minute and look forward to returning. As the Club’s advertising says about CLs this one really is a “hidden gem offering picturesque solitude away from the crowds that are exclusively for our members.”

Stayed 6 nights. Enjoyed every minute

Burcot Brook Lodge
Booked last minute & were lucky to get 6 Nts. Easy access to site through security gate, we rang Nicky when 10 mind away & she stood at side of road to help us locate The field is enormous and pitches were so well spaced, a real bonus Nicky gave us a typed up potted history of area & answered lots of questions for us, then left us to set up We are members of NT so plenty of places to visit, also visited nearby Henley & Windsor Castle We ate at local pubs on a couple of Evenings (one ok & one not) but maybe we were unlucky Husband said water & chemical waste areas were very good (not all are) and whole site was kept tidy Both owners never intruded on us but on the occasion we saw them, extremely friendly Yes there is some road noise but just a drone during the night & I am an extremely light sleeper Do g hesitate to come here

Lovely friendly site would definitely recommend

Burcot Brook Lodge
Lovely flat really big field loads of room so no need to be too close to any other unit of you do not want to be. We had a great 4 night stay was welcomed by Nicky so helpful and friendly nothing too much trouble and gave us some really useful local information. 2 Water points one each end of the field and of course the bins and toilet disposal. We also met Andy a couple of days into our trip again very friendly and helpful and if you are interested in the local history of the area he is your man. he told us some fascinating history of the military and nonmilitary facts of the area. If you like wildlife there are Red Kites and talk about Watership Down fun watching the rabbits on their daily play usually early evening. Even though the site is next to a road it is not a busy road and you are not aware of any traffic noise. If you do not want to use the car or take out the motorhome access to the local bus service is ideal we did not take the Motorhome out at all just used the busses. A 10 minute walk takes you to the bus stops and the X38 X39 &X40 busses takes you straight into the city center of Oxford and they run about every 30 minutes. At the local stop by the Checkers Pub the bus takes you into Didcot they run every 2 hours. Dorchester on Thames is a 20 to 25 minute walk from the site depending on how fast you walk for any fans of Midsummer Murders. For extra information a taxi from Dorchester to Wallingford costs £14 the local pub the George Hotel even phoned the taxi for us Wallingford is a nice little place market on a Friday and a lovely pub right on the banks of the River Thames for lunch or a drink. Thanks to Nicky and Andy will definitely visit again.

So much room

Burcot Brook Lodge
We recently stayed here for 3 nights. Very large, well kept field with clean, modern facilities. My husband was particularly impressed by the quality of the CDP! Red kites frequently seen flying overhead. Lots of room for children to run around safely without disturbing anyone. Easy access and well located for going to Oxford, Reading etc. Only downside for us was the road noise at times but we do accept that we are very fussy so don't let it put you off. We will use this site again.
