Beautiful site

Durham Leys Farm
This site was absolutely beautiful. We arrived on the Sunday later afternoon. The site was very easy to find with the directions given from the owner when booking and paying was made very easy leaving the money in the postbox on site. The scenery from the site is very nice with a lovely bridleway right behind you for long walks. We took along our 2 labs but unfortunately due to the weather being extremely hot they weren't dealing so well with it so left for home early, but shall definitely return again in the future. If you enjoy peace and quiet with lovely views and walks we would highly recommend staying and also if you like the sun and want a good tan definitely stay here it has the sun from morning to evening.

A+ for this CL site.

Durham Leys Farm
A nice, well kept flat site in a lovely rural setting. Met the owner Ron briefly and he was a delight. Central to visiting the local area and the pub 400 yrs away (short walk) was very nice. Highly recommended.

Peace Itself

Durham Leys Farm
This was our first time staying at Durham Leys. We stayed for four nights and loved it. Marsh Baldon is a lovely village and the CL is situated just off the back of the enormous village green. Following the directions given in the Club site book we easily found it. A short track leads to a wide entrance, no problem at all getting in. We pulled on, picked our pitch on the flat well mown grass and had the kettle on in no time. Pitches are clearly marked and have plenty of space for the addition of an awning. A short while later the owner Ron popped over to welcome us, told us about the walks and the pubs and left us to it. Lovely outlook over the next field where we often saw deer grazing and were entertained by the flying antics of the Kites. Only interruption to the tranquility being the call of various birds. Immediately next to the CL is a bridle way which takes you up to the next village about a half hour walk, there is a pub there which unfortunately was closed throughout our stay. From here you can pick up various other footpaths to walk in all directions. In Marsh Baldon itself, in the opposite corner of the village green is a Community owned pub The Seven Stars, which took no more than four minutes to walk to from the caravan. Here we sampled some local ale, the pub does food which looked lovely although we didn’t indulge on this occasion. If you have a dog the walks are endless, the village green is more like a large common with plenty of room for dogs to run about. There is no shop in the village itself but a ten minute drive took us to a Tesco Superstore on the edge of Oxford. Park and Rides are available if you wanted to go into the centre of Oxford to see the sights. Definitely at the top of our favourites list.

Fantastic hideaway

Durham Leys Farm
Great site.....everything I was looking for: flat grass pitches; sun trap (very sheltered and all pitches face south; very tranquil (no passing roads); great walking with footpaths direct from site; lovely village pub within 5 minutes walk; muntjac deer, green woodpeckers and red kites all spotted from pitch. Very easy to find following club site directions (I checked the route in advance on google earth so knew exactly where to go). As a novice tower travelling alone I was a little concerned about the access based on one of the reviews, but there was no reason for concern......very wide gated access to site with plenty of space to pull in and stop to open the gate. A delightful site to which I shall definitely return.
