Jiffy the motorhome

What a great site. Very easy to find. Sign for the site just left after the care home. Follow the lane to the end and turn right straight onto the site. Ask for your pitch number when you book up, as you will have to go back down the lane to ask. Beautiful site with brilliant views over the fields. Three hardstanding and two grass. Three electric points with a bin. Take a gas kettle or pan as electric kettles are too powerful and blow the fuse. Everything else is ok, including heating and microwaves. Great recycling next to the water and waste. Fabulous variety of shops including three Coops, an Iceland and a Tesco Express. There is also a Sainsbury store and garage at the south roundabout. Bus stop at the end of the lane, S4 goes either to Banbury or Oxford hourly, or the 7&500 both go to Oxford more regularly. Bus drivers very helpful. Buses are the best option, as all the car parks in this area have height restrictions at the entrances. Canal just a short walk away. We went towards Thrupp the 1st night where there is a beautiful lock and Annie's Tea room. 2nd day we went the same way, but a lot further along, great scenery. 3rd day we headed along the canal towards Oxford turning round at Wolvercote. The canal walks were great, paths were ok for walking, cycling and dogs, but not wheelchairs. There are only seats and bins at the locks, so it may be a good idea to check a canal map in advance if you're not too good on your feet! We will buy an ordinance survey map next time we visit the site as there are loads of pathway signs leading off the canals.4th day we spent in Banbury, visiting a reservoir and Spiceball park; more canal walking and shopping in the market and local shops. Went to Oxford twice on the bus; stunning city, beautiful parks and walks along theThames. Loads of pathways over the fields on the moors from the site. Great fun watching the squirrels on the site! But unfortunately too late in the season to see any deer or foxes. Overall a brilliant site for a motorhome as everything you need is right on your doorstep, we will definitely return.

Will be back

Only stayed one night but will be back as we are looking to move to the area. Relaxed and friendly arrival and gave permission to over stay beyond mid day if we wanted. Might be awkward for long outfits and over 7 metre M/H due to sharp bend on private road. Water and disposal point OK and no problem with electric hook up. Noise from airport and trains but not intrusive for us, and no siren as complained by previous reviewer. Dog exercise on site and nearby good canal side walk with a coffee stop halfway.

Returned again !

Many times we have returned to this sight and each time we find something different to see and do . It is rural,with visiting deer, but convenient for sightseeing in oxford and surrounding areas . excellent for walks and cycling . There is a shop and buses at the end of the lane. The canal and PHs are a short walk away . For anyone interested in the history of the area there is plenty to learn . Mr Winters and his son are only to pleased to help and very informative . We shall return !!!

Good location

Liked this CL site. We were on pitch 5 and looked across the fields so got to see the family of foxes playing plus plenty sightings of deer. Great location as close to the canal and also the bus into Oxford or Banbury. Kidlington is a nice little town. Facilities basic but fine for a CL site.

A lucky find

We were looking for a place to stay in our motorhome, within easy reach of Oxford by public transport and this seemed to fit the bill. The site was easy to find. although I was glad I had checked it out on Google streetview first as the sign at the end of the lane could be easy to miss. We parked in the only empty hardstanding, which was number 2, and hooked up. Note that the EHU is 10 amps. The fresh water tap was at the fence just at the back of this pitch so we just about managed to get our hose to reach. Caravanners were rolling their water containers up to it, but others may have to make sure they bring a very long hose, or they would have to drive up at the side of pitch 2 which could have been a bit awkward. There was a sign near the entrance (facing the wrong way for people arriving) asking us to pay at the bungalow along the lane. Mr Winters was friendly and helpful. He came quickly once when we phoned having tripped the electricity, and he was often seen just checking around. The black waste is also not far from the back of pitch 2 and as another reviewer noted, is basically an open drain with a loose cover on it. The smell when it was open was awful, and you had to be careful not to splash yourself. Aside from that, we were very happy with the site and its location. Buses were easy into Oxford, but don't fall into the trap we did and buy a 72 hours Oxford Bus Company pass, and then find its not valid on the Park and Ride and Stagecoach. Around the corner from the hardstanding pitches was another area without EHU that had lovely views over a field where deer would sometime wander. We would go again, but take some sort of mask for emptying the black waste!
