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.

Ideal for visiting Oxford

The very helpful site owner, Andy Ashby, has established a good CL on approximately 3 acres of flat and well drained grass that is regularly mown. The 16 amp electric supply points are well spaced out to provide maximum space between units and the site is protected at all times by a locked gate with a combination padlock. Currently there is only one drinking water point, located just inside the site entrance but there are plans to provide another more central one very shortly. The chemical toilet disposal point is also just inside the entrance. TV and mobile phone signals are excellent. The site is in a rural location, with easy access but is only 8 miles from the centre of Oxford. The Redbridge Park & Ride, which is a short drive away, offers easy access into the city centre. As previous reviews have pointed out there are many opportunities to see a variety of wildlife on the site and I would recommend it for anyone intending to visit Oxford and other places such as Blenheim Palace, Woodstock and a number of other picturesque villages in the area.

A good CL

An enjoyable 4-night stay with blue skies, red kites and rabbits in abundance. The CL is a large and level three-acre rectangle of well-cut grass with spaced out electrical points along one side away from the local road. The CL is screened from the road with shrubs and established trees and overlooks a large adjoining field that also has established trees and leads to the Thames. There is no immediate access to or view of the Thames from the CL. The local road from Burcot into Dorchester is relatively quiet. Dorchester, where there is a small co-op, and its Abbey are delightful and can be reached easily on foot or even quicker by bike. The small Abbey museum which is free and the Abbey tea room/garden are a must to visit. The Thames footpath is a short walk across fields from Dorchester and can be explored in either direction over any distance which is a highlight of the area. There are bus connections to Oxford and elsewhere but we didn’t use them. The owner – Andy – was very friendly and met us on arrival with a combination code for the gate. He was a mine of information on the local area. We would definitely use this CL again.

A very well run CL

We stayed at this lovely CL for 6 nights in Early June 2019. It's easy to find if you follow the directions in the sites directory. You are asked to call the owners mobile 15 minutes before arrival. This lets the owner, Andy, get to the access gate so that he can open it for you, and give you the code for the combination padlock. Andy is a really nice, friendly guy, and is happy to share his wealth of local knowledge too. The field is large and mostly flat, and the EHU's have been updated to 16amp this year. There are many places of interest nearby, and although there isn't an information shed, Andy is always around, and he can give advice on many subjects, from historical information, where to eat etc. We would definitely recommend this CL to any member.

Great Site in a beautiful area

Lovely spacious site with easy access. Andy was very welcoming, meeting us at the gated entrance on arrival. Provided lots of useful advice and history on the local area and had also arranged some excellent weather for our stay. Many thanks Andy, we will be back.
