South Newington is a small village that lies approximately 7 miles (11km) north east of Chipping Norton and 6 miles (9km) south west of Banbury on the south bank of the River Swere (M40 9 miles). South Newington retains the character of a small, thriving rural village. Part of the village lies in a conservation area which was designated in 1989. The church is late Norman and is one of only fifteen churches in England to be dedicated to St Peter ad Vincula. The church has become famous for the well preserved wall paintings which are nationally important. The village offers a network of footpaths for walkers. Other amenities include a village garage, garden plant sales, a blacksmith, children's play area known as "The Poleaxe" including play equipment and a freehouse also offering meals.

Newton Grove is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful villages and historic towns of North Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds. Numerous leisure and cultural activities are to be found in Chipping Norton, Banbury and further afield in Oxford, Warwick and Stratford. If you are a serious shopper you can take a trip to the popular Bicester Village. With easy access to the M40 you are only an hour from Birmingham and an hour and a half from London, so come and enjoy a beautiful tranquil piece countryside.

excellent CL

lovely site, grass better than some lawns, slightly sloping but ample blocks provided and because of slope drains well we were on hardstanding in motorhome but would have been confident on grass. We were several days and did not miss EHU though owner provides solar panel if required. The waste disposal is at the top of the field and is very well designed and easy to use. Picnic tables and fire pits a nice touch for balmy evenings. John santises taps etc on a daily basis

A completely different take on Off-Grid

Firstly just for full disclosure I did not stay at Newton Grove but did get to visit and take a good look around so that I could film a video of the site for my YouTube Channel. (Free of charge no money changed hands :-) ) Newton Grove is certainly a really well maintained site and John, the owner of the site, has obviously put a lot of effort into all the little details everything from clear signage all the way to providing benches and fire pits. What to me is most impressive is how he has gone to the trouble of actually providing solar panels for those that want to stay at an off-grid site but do not have their own solar, very inspirational. Anyway here's the video link which does a better job of describing the site than I can. https://youtu.be/oOM7eX_0d_w

Delightful stay

As other reviewers have said, this is a very special place. John is very organised and provides excellent communication and information before arrival, a warm welcome and a very well maintained site with immaculate facilities. We really didn't miss the electric hook up. We enjoyed exploring the local village, especially the quaint little garden plant sales " just plants " There is good walking from the site and plenty of interesting on a short drive away. We will certainly be back !

Faultless, peaceful and spacious site.

Received arrival information from site owner a couple of days before arrival which was full of useful information. After accessing the easy to find site we were greeted by the site owner. Immediately noticed that the site was well maintained and cared for. Lovely large area and spaced out pitches. A welcome pack available and an information hut packed full of anything you should need to know and more. Clearly going above and beyond to ensure fully Covid compliant for their guests safety. Located in a really nice village with places for walking the dogs and a village pub only a short walk away. We had a very enjoyable and peaceful stay. We couldn't fault it at all and will be returning.
