Why stay here ...

Welcome to Northfield Farm Caravan Site. The CL is a private and rural 2 acre site situated on a working farm, yet is only 6 miles from the centre of Oxford.  The site has the River Cherwell running alongside on one edge with hedges around the rest of the field to provide shelter. Beyond the site there are open fields belonging to the Farm.

The site is a lovely location for a relaxing break, visits to the 'City of the Dreaming Spires' or historical Blenheim Palace. The site is regularly mown with three electric boxes around the site (4 Electric points on two and 2 Electric points on one) to enable visitors to choose where they would like to pitch within the whole field.

There is an area of grassed hardstanding should visitors require it.

Dogs are welcome on leads on the site, however we do ask that visitors are considerate of others and ensure they clear up after their dogs. 

The river and fields surrounding the site provide an abundance and variety of wildlife. At the far end of the site there is direct access onto a bridleway either to Islip, 0.5 mile (through a ford ankle to knee deep) or towards Oxford, 4.5miles. Or, as an alternative, a shorter circular walk of approximately 1 mile around the farm. 

The CL is situated on a working arable and livestock farm, so at times, you will see and hear some of the machinery at work, however, we do take into consideration visitors on the site to ensure they have an enjoyable stay. 

We are approximately 2 miles from the local village of Kidlington (reportedly the largest village in England) which has many local amenities.  You can also catch a local bus (1.5 miles) or Park and Ride (2.5 miles) into Oxford. There is also a newly opened railway station, Oxford Parkway (Chiltern Line), which can take you to the Bicester Village Retail outlet in 20 minutes or directly into London Marylebone in just under 1 hour. The line runs near to the site on new quiet rails.

There are plenty of areas to explore in the locality, beautiful villages and historic towns within Oxfordshire and the nearby Cotswolds. 

Advanced booking required and Gas is available to purchase. Payment can be made by cheque, cash or BACS on arrival.  Deposits will be required to secure your booking. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our site.

Ideal for Oxford

Northfield Farm
We have just spent 7 nights on this well maintained site with lots of space and the lovely river Cherwell running alongside. Ideal for visiting Oxford and for paddling on the river and Oxford canal. Although the site is a long way from the road the ever present roar of the A34 spoilt what was otherwise a perfect location, if the wind is from the south then it is peaceful!

Excellent CL

Northfield Farm
Just returned from 8 nights at this lovely site. Access is great via a concrete road. Site is clean and tidy with a river running along the bottom. We were lucky enough to see the Geese and goslings also a deer went past our caravan one night. There is a train track at the other side of the river but the trains stop at night and after the first day you get use to them. Ideal site for Oxford and the Cotswolds. Cotswold wildlife park is worth a visit and they even allow dogs. I can not fault this site, it is peaceful and quiet. The field is big so you are away from other caravanners and can pitch anywhere, very Covid safe. I would highly recommend this site and we will definitely return in the future.

Excellent Site

Northfield Farm
This site was perfect for us. It is situated over a mile from the public road, accessible via a private farm road which is concrete and in very good condition. As a result, the site feels very peaceful and very secure. The only noise comes from the railway line which runs next to the site, but we didn't find this at all intrusive. If you have a dog, this site is very good, as you can walk the private access road and there is a field accessible from the site. Rosie, the site owner met us on arrival and was very friendly. There are no marked out pitches, so you can go wherever your hook up cable will reach. We pitched in a nice shady spot under some trees. We will definitely visit this site again.

Great site

Northfield Farm
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at this site. We were blessed with a bout of glorious weather. We loved it. The approach to the farm is easily accessible. There is a very long driveway which has good passing points. The site owners, Merlin & Rosie, made us feel very welcome and gave us good information on local points of interest and facilities. We were spoilt by having the site to ourselves, apart from one night, but there is plenty of room between pitches if the site was fully occupied. Nearby train line did not cause any disturbance. Good (and secure) park & ride close by for Oxford city centre. Blenheim Palace approx 8 miles away. Will definitely visit again.

M40 A34 STOPOVER

Northfield Farm
We used this CL heading down to Dover as an overnight stop. Also ideal for those on the A34 heading towards Portsmouth. The CL has a very good concrete road leading to the main site. Easy access. Grass was well cut with plenty of space. Although we used it as a stopover it is ideal for Oxford. As you drive down the concrete road there is a split. The left tracks leads to the non electric pitches, the right to the electric pitches. Trains can be seen from the CL. Caused us no problem at all
