A little piece of heaven

What a beautiful cl. It is set in gorgeous countryside looking out over fields.The cl is level with pitches set against the hedge so you have an open view. I was lucky to see muntjac deer, kites, woodpeckers and everyday the horses are gently strolling nearby. I was visiting my son in Oxford and this site is perfect for that. A 20 minute walk takes you to Nuneham Courtenay where you can catch the bus into the city. There are walks straight from the site, it's lovely for dogs. The owner Ron is a lovely helpful host. I will definitely be back. Don't forget to pick up the directions from the pub that way you will find it easily and have no access problems.

Perfect retreat location.

We found this site after looking for a last stop off before heading home after a 1700 mile tour of the Scottish highlands. We found it so relaxing, that we decided to stay an extra night before heading home. We shall definitely visit again as a base for visiting Oxford, and beautiful surrounding areas. The site is a spacious flat grassed area, away from main roads, with hook ups for each pitch, and a chemical disposal point. A short walk to local pub across a delightful Common, which all makes it a perfect location.

Perfect site

Highly rated site. I don’t know how some reviews can say it’s narrow and caravans too close to each other? Do those reviewers normally pitch alone on football pitches? There’s plenty enough space. Easy to get to if you follow the directions given by going to the pub first using a sat nav and then using the map they give you. Tranquil. Wildlife. Pub nearby. Friendly helpful owner. What more could you want? There’s no ablution facilities so recommended for people with that on board - which these days is most everyone anyway. I will definitely go again.

Charming Site

Durham Leys Farm is located in the quite charming village of Marsh Baldon, on the other side of the green. It is quite easy to get to. Once you come off the main road there is a single track road with plenty of passing points. Go to the Seven Stars Pub and they give you detailed directions. Basically it is a sectioned off part of the horse field. There are no showers or toilets so I think £15 per night is a bit steep. Waste dump and fresh water supply are perfectly adequate. The views are very good, the location is dead quiet. It might get a bit cosy with 5 caravans, but nevertheless enough room. The pitching area is flat and level. Never saw the owner, just put the money in the box as requested. Not a problem. The location is very good to visit Oxford. The park and ride is fairly close. I would strongly recommend that it is used as Oxford looked a nightmare for traffic and parking. The local pub, Seven Stars is very friendly and serves excellent food and Is easily walkable, make sure that you take a torch as you can lose your bearings on the way back as there is no lighting. All in all a good site that is well worth a few days to visit Oxford and a couple of nights out in the local pub.

what a location!!!!

What a lovely location very quiet and peaceful, Once you turn off the main road into the village of Marsh Baldon it is like stepping back in time, buildings of character and there is chance that you could watch the local test match on the village green. The view from your caravan you can watch the horses in their paddocks and the buzzards flying overhead. The field is a well cut paddock and no need for any levelling blocks. This is the second time I have used this location and love it, just give Ron a call to book your stay, he gives a very warm welcome.
