Why stay here ...

Bladon Chains Club Site is situated on the Blenheim Estate, so you will have the pleasure of seeing magnificent trees all around you, on this gently sloping site situated just outside the wall of the Palace Garden. You can walk to famous Bladon Church from the corner of the caravan park where you can see Churchill's modest but memorable grave. Then you will want to visit the Palace, where Churchill was born; it has also been home to the historic Dukes of Marlborough since the eighteenth century. Members staying on site will receive a 30% discount with a valid receipt from site on admission tickets for the Palace, Park and Gardens - click here for all details you need.

At a mere 7 miles away from the Bladon Chains Club Site, nearby Oxford is a must. One of the easiest and most pleasant ways to see this historic university town is by open topped bus. For those interested in art and archaeology, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford is a must visit, with intriguing exhibitions spanning 5 floors.

The caravan site is also within easy reach of the lovely Cotswolds and you can tour Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Northleach for a picture postcard experience of beautiful Cotswold villages. If there is still time left after such an exhilarating schedule, then travel north to Banbury or to the Bicester Designer Shopping Village.

Dog poo on pitch

We have just come back from spending a week at Bladon Chains club site. On arrival we were checked in by the relief wardens who were lovely. Eventually found a pitch and set up only to discover that the last occupant had permitted their dogs to foul on it in numerous places. We complained to the warden who was very apologetic, picked it up and then disinfected the areas. Absolutely couldn’t fault him at all. The road noise is constant on this site as its located just off a roundabout and the main road into Woodstock. We were there when the pop up site opened and although it had its own facilities the occupants still used the facilities on the main site which caused even longer waiting times. Halfway through our week we woke up to discover another pile of dog poo right adjacent to our A frame. Again the warden collected it and was just as disgusted as we were. All in all, not a good week for us.

Lovely weekend

We had a lovely weekend at Bladon Chains. The location was perfect for visiting Blenheim Palace (walking distance) and also Woodstock. It was peaceful too with little road noise. The children enjoyed the playground and the dog enjoyed the dog area too. We didn't take advantage of the pizza van but we might do another time. We will definitely go back.

Excellent for Blenheim, but that's all

Visited this site during Covid problems as it is so close to Blenheim Palace and visitor numbers there are down. The site is quite noisy, and many pitches are on a slope. Even in mid-September and was packed - then they put a pop-up site in the next field, with entrance through the site. The single facilities block and Motorhome emptying point in the arrivals bay is just not good enough for the number of pitches on such a busy site and the poor wardens are overworked and doing their best. If you want to visit Blenheim, this is the site to stay at, but it has little else to recommend it I'm afraid.

Fabulous location

We arrived at the site to a friendly welcome from the wardens, facilities very clean, only wish all guests would adhere to the rules and remember to remove their bands before leaving the block. This caused unnecessary queues. Washing up facilities outside under a canopy so allowed two sinks to be used, which was a bonus. The location was brilliant, as able to walk to Blenheim Palace through Gate house and Woodstock along footpath from site then only a short walk along main road. Thanks for a great break.

Handy for Blenheim

We enjoyed our stay at Bladon Chains but its usual level of surrounding road noise increased considerably one night due to road works going on well into the night (no fault of the Site!). We walked into Woodstock for food shopping. Access to the Blenheim estate via car was really quick. We took advantage of the discount offered by the Site for entry into Blenheim. It's also a good base for visiting Oxford.
