  • Deliberately rustic camping field on an Oxfordshire canalside pig farm
  • Farm shop with sausages, bacon, pork and eggs
  • Catering trailer on site serving breakfast and lunch

If you owned a narrowboat, could there be any more crack(l)ing pastime than pulling up to a farm shop on the historic Oxford Canal to pig out on all things pork? Don’t own a narrowboat just yet? Go the whole hog regardless at The Pig Place near Banbury: the range of pig-based products – and pigs – here might make you squeal.

The Pig Place is a working smallholding and campsite next to the Oxford Canal, complete with farm shop stuffed with prime pig products such as traditional sausages, dry-cured bacon and home-produced pork, all from the farm’s rare pedigree breeds of British Lop and Oxford Sandy and Black pigs.

Buy some along with a clutch of free-range eggs for breakfast, or trot along to the catering trailer for a breakfast or/and lunch of bacon and eggs, sausages, roast pork, stuffing and apple sauce, guaranteed to leave you more pot-bellied than when you arrive.

Bring your camera to be on the tail of some smoking hot pics here: piglets regularly run around the site and the native sheep and lambs, geese, ducks and chickens will show little piggies in your family that food doesn’t just come from the supermarket.

The grassy camping paddock at The Pig Place sits between the livestock area and the vegetable patches – hang about near your pitch at feeding time for more snaps, or turn your gaze waterwards for photos of narrowboats drawing in to stock up at the farm shop.

Facilities at The Pig Place are basic (one portaloo and no showers), but the owners rightly say the attractions on site more than make up for it: whether casting about at the canal (just adjacent to the farm), racing piglets around the site, or seeing just how many sausages it’s possible for one family to feast upon, we very much doubt you’ll be boar-ed...
