Great site

216 Lane End
Paul communicated well and assisted me with a water pump problem. also gave advice on walks and has a good knowledge of local history. The walk from site to the canal is only a few minutes and it's about 6-7 miles along the towpath to Oxford which is beautiful. No problem with electric hookup. Local co op is a few mins walk from site. would certainly return

A difficult one to quantify!

216 Lane End
Stayed two nights at 216 Lane End. It has a strange entrance down a side road between residential properties which, after a couple of hundred yards turns into the CL. Pitches are set along one side of the track in and a grassed area with trees on the other. The pitches are pretty level but quite rough being laid with what looks like compacted hardcore. Each pitch has EHU and a dustbin and the pitches back on to an orchard and what appears to be the owners garden. The other two sides of the site have pleasant views across fields and on one evening we were treated to a couple of deer wandering past. There is a water point behind the pitches but access with a motorhome isn’t possible if the nearest pitches are occupied so make sure you have means of carrying water to your unit. Behind the water point there are rubbish bins and the chemical disposal point. Unfortunately, probably the worst CDP I’ve ever used; just a manhole cover which when lifted shows what has been deposited previously and smells. There is traffic noise but it does fade into the background. Trains also pass the site but again this wasn’t too much of a problem and it all quietens down at night. Although dogs are allowed they’re not to be exercised on site so it means walking off the site to do so. Fortunately, within a few minutes walk there’s a track leading into the fields bordering the site and also, in the other direction, to a pleasant canal-side towpath which leads to two dog friendly pubs, The Jolly Boatman and The Boat and Annie’s Tea Rooms. There is a Co-op mini-market across the road from the site and also a bus stop where the bus to Oxford stops. The site is currently being looked after by the son of the owner who was very friendly when we met him and the site is in a great spot for exploring the Cotswolds around Banbury, Chipping Norton and Oxford but it just feels a little neglected and run down which is a shame as it could be a gem.

Bigwig Toy Poodle Reports

216 Lane End

The lead holder said she would not return due to when we got back on site at near midnight after last walk a car drove in to the end of the hard surface a man got out and then got back in. As the pleasant owner had told us on booking that he was away the lead holder did not feel very safe. This site is down a small lane near houses in a residential area. There is a sign saying saying 'no exercising of dogs on site'. So most walkies were along the local roads, the main one is busy. We did find the canal towpath which is good for an early morning walkies.

Nice peaceful little site in a very convenient location.

216 Lane End
We stayed at 216 Lane End to visit Blenheim Palace and Oxford. Both are easily accessed by frequent buses from just outside the site. The site itself is very pleasant with pitches overlooking fields and a small orchard. Apart from the sound of a train every so often and the occassional jet engine from Oxford Airport it was very peaceful. Don't let these noise sources put you off they are not intrusive and unlike a main road are not continuous. The electric hookups were fine as were the water and waste disposal facilities. The owner was friendly when he came to collect the pitch fee and was happy to have a short chat. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will visit again if we are in the area.
