Wow, beautiful!

Durham Leys Farm
A two night stay at this fabulous CL! I was advised by the owner, when booking, about not following the sat nav at The Green, and followed the road around to the left at the Seven Stars Pub and round The Green clockwise. Narrow lanes but no issues for access even with my 8.4m motorhome. On entering the gateway the CL is in the corner of a large field, fenced off, with shrubs and small trees around the edge, it’s level and well mown. Easy access to the water along on side of the site. Pitched up and spent a couple of hours sitting in the peace and quiet, watching the crows aerobatics over the trees as they chased off some marauding birds of prey. There is no road noise, no houses nearby, just lovely peace and quiet. This has to be one of the most peaceful CL’s I’ve been too, and would most definitely make a return visit.

Lovely, level site.

Durham Leys Farm
We stayed for a couple of nights in dry weather. The owner drove by to check that we were settled in and have a pleasant chat. Great little site. Lovely level pitches. Very quiet, yet with easy access to Oxford. We have a large unit (Discovery and Elegance 645) but found the access pretty simple. The last 50m has some potholes, but nothing too serious. Reading the directions allowed us to identify the exact location using ‘what three words’ and Waze did a perfect job of navigation. Always with the caveat of follow the map rather than the GPS! Will definitely be returning

A hidden gem

Durham Leys Farm
Wanting to take our newly-repaired caravan for a local check-out stay before venturing further afield, we came across Ron's site in Marsh Baldon, and were utterly charmed. It's well-kept grass, delightfully flat, and set in some of Oxfordshire's most beautiful and quiet countryside. If you are walkers like us, you will enjoy the Shakespeare's Way footpath down to Chiselhampton, with its pub and very scenic old bridge. If you are looking to explore Oxford, it's only a short drive away. Marsh Baldon itself is full of ancient buildings, and a leisurely sight-seeing stroll around the very sizeable village green is worth finishing at the Seven Stars, where the food and service we found to be excellent. For those following satnavs to get to the site, it’s worth reinforcing the official site directions – turn left as you enter the village and follow the road around the green, rather than carry straight on past the Seven Stars onto the narrow, unmade road with sharp bends. Save that road for your walk to the pub later!

July heatwave visit

Durham Leys Farm
We'd done our homework regarding the directions to the site from the village. It really is quite easy to find, but could be a little daunting to some as you wind your way down the lane to a seemingly dead end. There is a sign on the telegraph post and also a sign adjacent to the gateway. The site is flat open and well drained. We didn't need a single levelling block for either orientation, which must be a first. We stayed in very hot weather, which was wonderful, but be aware the site faces due south and is an excellent sun trap with trees behind. Take your parasol if the forecast is good. We used the park and ride when we visited Oxford, which was a few miles down the road and easy to use. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, although it was too hot to venture far on foot, but there were numerous footpaths nearby including right behind the site which would make an excellent dog walk. Local pubs were excellent, with two within walking distance ( about 1/4 mile & 1 1/2 mile) Ron drove by most days, in various forms of transport to check all was well & we stayed an extra couple of days as we enjoyed it so much. Very minor criticisms ( it wouldn't be a review without!) The waste bins and toilet disposal areas could have done with a bit of a strim but that is all i could think of. Highly recommended. We will probably return in future.

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.
