Why stay here ...

The Club is sorry to announce that, following lengthy negotiations with Blenheim Palace Estate, the leased campsite, Bladon Chains, is now closed for the foreseeable future.

The Club welcomes the acknowledgement of the considerable benefits it has brought to both Blenheim Palace and the local community. We are actively looking to find an alternative campsite in the area. In the meantime we have a number of other great campsites in the area which you will enjoy staying at, including:

Moreton-in-Marsh Club Campsite (open all year) - nestled in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold countryside, just 20 miles from Blenheim Palace.

Burford Club Campsite (open until January) - conveniently located near the unspoilt village of Burford and the popular Cotswold Wildlife Park, with the historic city of Oxford only 20 miles away.

Wonderful site, will be missed

Bladon Chains Caravan Club Site
Stayed at this site many times over the years, so many happy memories, real shame it is being closed down by the estate. lets hope the new residents of the expensive lodges experience what a great place it is, feel sorry for the local business as I think they will notice the drop in income generated by the caravan and motorhome community.

Goodbye and thanks for the memories

Bladon Chains Caravan Club Site
An excellent site, quiet and convenient for visiting Oxford. The facilities are clean and well looked after, we were made aware that the showers were not available before we stayed. There were visiting vans serving 'street food', pizza and fish and chips on different nights but we didn't use them. The wardens were friendly and efficient. So sorry to see this site go, as it holds memories of staying here with my parents in the early/mid 70s. Pleased to be able to visit again before it closes for good.

Great site, shame closing

Bladon Chains Caravan Club Site
Great site, great location. Walked to Blenheim Palace for the day. Don’t forget discounts. You have to answer all questions above but I didn’t use the facilities as they were closed and don’t have children 🤷‍♀️🙄

Perfect for the Palace

Bladon Chains Caravan Club Site
The site is perfect for visiting Blenheim Palace, being less than a five minute walk from the vehicle exit point. The showers were not in use when I stayed, which was a shame, but the location made up for all. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities block was clean and pleasant to use. I’d stay again if it were possible and visit Oxford on the bus. What a shame that the estate has other plans for this gem of a site.

Another great last se

Bladon Chains Caravan Club Site
Absolutely brilliant location , on a bus route to Oxford and Woodstock/ Burford and some of the Cotswolds, but also lovely walk to Bladon (Winston Churchill’s Grave) and to Woodstock which has lovely pubs, restaurants and some pretty shops. Can’t believe Blenheim estate with their huge land area really needs this little corner back but apparently they do. We will miss this site, but have to be grateful that we got to stay her at all!
