Very quiet, peaceful spot close to the Thames

This was my second visit to Smokedown Farm. (I have a sister who lives in Faringdon and this is a convenient site for the town.) The field is just beyond the farm yard, flat with ample hook ups and the usual conveniences. The grass was short and there was no sign of flooding although we chose a particularly wet time to visit. It felt deep in the country with only the farm house and the cows, and birds for company. Mrs Viner was friendly and charged only £10 per night including electricity which I thought was excellent value. The approach road via Faringdon is very narrow but has a few passing places and very little traffic. The approach from the East via Littleworth avoids Faringdon but is narrower for longer. We arrived that way and didn't meet any traffic at all.

Lovely Farm Site

This is a top classic farm site. A warm welcome from Mr & Mrs Viner.We also were the only caravan visiting this farm, members obviously do not know what they are missing. We shall definitely be returning later this year.

Lovely spot

We spent 2 nights here in early June.  A lovely, relaxed, quiet site on a working farm.  We enjoyed watching the cows in the field opposite - our young daughter gave them all names :) We were the only guests that weekend so had the field to ourselves, I imagine it would be rather 'friendly' if there were 3 or more Vans in but all have a clear area.  No problem with water, hook-up & CDP, bins easy access with recycling incl. for food waste.  I am a very light sleeper so was woken by the tractor at about 7:15 Saturday morning but it didn't wake my husband or daughter.  Mrs Vine was very friendly when we went to pay - I advise you to buy the eggs (50p/6) as they are delicious.   We will visit again but will avoid the small bridges at Radley (bit of a tight squeeze but fine in the end) and come in from the A420 side.

Quiet rural site

We're only 25mins down the road but come here 2-3 times a year. The kids love it, as you can walk through the farm yard and see the tractors and the cows in the barn. It's tucked away on an easy access road, although like a lot of CLs you'd not want to meet another can coming the other direction. The field can get wet at either end of the year (or in 2012, during the summer). While you can get the car in and out when it's really wet, you might need to get pulled out by the tractor. The field overlooks another field which normally has some cows in. Always nice to watch them over breakfast. Mrs Viner is always welcoming and chatty which is nice.
