Situated by Wittenham Clumps in south Oxfordshire, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we couldn't be better placed as a starting point for your weekend away.
The beautiful town of Oxford and the River Thames are both on our doorstep and we also have lots of towns and villages close by, some of which you may have heard of and some of which may be new, but all worth a visit. Also within easy reach are the Cotswolds and the New Forest, each with lots of campsites offering many different types of weekends away.
We can also advise on local campsites, some only a 10 minute drive, with Thames walks and local country pubs next door.
The world famous city of Oxford is close by and offers a variety of things to do. Visit the many colleges and museums, sample a variety of cuisines in it's numerous restaurants or sit by the Thames and have a glass of Pimms.
Or if you fancy something different visit the lively Cowley Road and Jericho areas to sample the nightlife.
There is a campsite just outside the city centre which is well served by bus routes straight to the heart of the city.
The pretty market town of Wallingford has a selection of campsites, some on or close to the river. It has many shops and restaurants, an outdoor pool and splashpark, a steam train and even day boat hire. It also hosts many popular annual events like the Bunkfest in September, the Classic Car Rally in May and various summer rowing Regattas. One of the most popular campsites is Bridge Villa Camping & Caravan Park, which is very close to the Thames and only a short walk into the town.
It even has a claim to fame in Midsomer Murders with the theatre being the setting for the Causton Players. Thankfully real murders are few and far between.
HENLEY ON THAMES
The popular town of Henley on Thames boasts many attractions and is the perfect spot for a weekend away. As well as the world renowned Henley Regatta in July and the Rewind Festival in August there are many more reasons to visit, miles of riverside walks, a variety of restaurants, traditional pubs and even it's own brewery!
The campsite is only a 5 minute walk into the town centre.
THE NEW FOREST
An hour south of our location is the New Forest, 219 sq miles of forest and heathland, with beautiful villages and numerous campsites. The pretty towns of Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst have lots of pubs and restaurants and both have campsites within walking distance.
There are lots of campsites right in the heart of the forest with streams for paddling and fields for playing rounders, which makes it's the perfect location for families. Brockenhurst has campsites right on the edge of the village, easy to visit the shops or pubs or to visit the very good Chinese takeaway if you fancy a cooking free night.
But if you want to be in the middle of the forest with dog walks on your doorstep then there are plenty of campsites off the beaten track that a motorhome gives you access to. Just ask and we will be happy to recommend some.
An hour north are the beautiful towns of Woodstock and Burford, both the start of the Cotswolds, the largest area of outstanding natural beauty in the UK.
With it's quintessentially English villages of honey-coloured stone and lively market towns it's a great place for a long weekend or holiday. Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water are both well worth a visit for an afternoon tea or a trip to one of the many shops and traditional pubs.
