Why stay here ...
You will always find a warm welcome at Coombe Farm CL, a pleasant location, restful and quiet. All pitches are separated by shrubs etc. always kept short mown, pitches pre-levelled and have a waste water connection, no need for your grey water containers, as well as hook-ups on every pitch. Please note this site is not suitable for motorhomes.
Les will take you on a 'Freelander Safari' which includes some of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire's prettiest villages, which by the way are used by TV production companies for 'Midsomer Murders' and 'Lewis'. Our local pub the 'Bull' was used just a few months ago. There is a charge for this service and can include a call at a pub if you wish.
On the wildlife side Kites visit us on most days along with squirrels and deer on occasions.
The local shop, Post Office and newspapers are only a 5 minute walk. We also have an out of town supermarket 5 minutes drive from the CL. Other points of interest, we are just a few minutes' walk from 'The Bull Inn' our village pub, evening meals and lunches etc. by the village green. A few minutes further along the road is Raymond Blancs' restaurant Le Manoir aux quat Saisons.
Our nearest town is Thame, a market town with street stalls on Tuesdays. It is a lovely old town with tea rooms etc. approximately 5 miles away, also the start of the Phoenix Cycle Trail.
We have an hourly bus service to Oxford through the village or you can use the Park & Ride about 5 miles away at Risinghurst to access the city.
Our local windmill has just been renovated and is opening summer 2014, and another one three miles away at Wheatley is already operating. We also have Chinnor Steam Railway open Sundays with cream teas on board, that's about 9-10 miles. Then there's beautiful Waterperry Gardens with it's fine herbaceous borders, teashop and not to be missed, the Rural Country Museum about 5 miles. Waterperry is also home to the annual Art in Action event in July.
The Oxfordshire Way is also near and Milton Fishing Pools is only about 1 mile. We are also quite near to the Ridgeway Path, approximately 8 miles crossing the Chilterns. In the opposite direction approximately 25 miles are the Cotswolds.
Just over the fence from the CL you will see our retired Welsh Black Cattle of the 'Coombe Herd'. We now only have a few, along with free range hens and ducks. Our free range eggs are sold in our Little Shop along with other goodies. There are also pamphlets of the local area for your interest.
At the moment we are busy seeding our old meadow of about 2 acres with a wild flower mix.
Hope to see you soon,
Les and Sylvia Preston
We regret that we do not accept dogs at our CL thank you

The site is pristine. It is beautifully cared for and loved by its' owner Les.He has given real thought to the comforts of caravan members & I'm sure added ideas that he would like to have when away caravaning on other sites.It was especially nice to have your 'grey water' drained straight into a drainage system.The pitches are spacious and the site well kept BUT it was just too much like a club site for us personally. Rules to follow, lots of 'do's & don'ts'...such as no groundsheets. cars to be parked away from your van..o.k in good weather but not so good when the heavens are opening and you've left something in the car.There is a system for entering and leaving the site. The vans are all allocated facing each other but It would have been much nicer to watch the cattle graze in the field behind us & not our neighbours grazing! Don't make the same mistake as us and turn into 'Green Hitchings' as this will lead you into a housing estate which you can exit but it is awkward when towing. Go straight down the road and the site is then clearly visable on the right. There is a charge of £1.50-£2.00 per. night for an awning. The site is all you could want if you like 'club sites' but in my opinion it isn't the ordinary CL.
