Cotswolds Camping: Our view

General

  • Cosy family-run and dog-friendly site in the Cotswolds
  • A 15-minute drive from Blenheim Palace; 25 minutes to Stow-on-the-Wold
  • Barbecues and firepits allowed; access to footpaths and bridleways

After a cosy spot somewhere in the Cotswolds? Historic houses, museums and market towns are out in full force around the cosy Cotswolds Camping in its Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty six miles from Chipping Norton… to be exact, this family-run site is 15 minutes' drive away from Blenheim Palace and within striking distance of many characteristic Cotswolds trails.

At the same time, Oxfordshire is the other way and Oxford itself is just 15 minutes’ train journey away from Charlbury Station (five minutes’ drive). As for those of you with a soft spot for a hardcore shopping trip, you won’t be left in the lurch here, as Bicester Village has a shopping outlet 35 minutes’ drive away and Stratford-upon-Avon is 45 minutes’ drive away for handsome riverside scenes and independent shops.

Now, how about those hiking shoes? Well, the site has access to fancy footpaths, bridleways and woodland walks, so you’ll be able to get right to the rambling. You might want to stop by the local village, Charlbury, on your way around the local area, as there are food shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants here, all within walking distance of the site.

And don’t worry, you’ll be able to carry the good time onto the site, as barbecues and firepits are both permitted – the same for dogs. As for the facilities you’ll have on hand, these include a play area, shower, toilets and a dishwashing area to help you deal with any dirty pots and pans.

Please note

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

A cable measuring at least 20 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Toilet rolls are not provided, please bring your own.

A bit hillbilly-ish in places but enjoyable.21/09/2022

  • Electric optional grass touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    Relaxed atmosphere considering such a big site. Friendly welcome. Decent facilities if somewhat chaotic layout.

    Disliked: 

    Having to take your own toilet paper to the loo was a bit of a nuisance. Surely it wouldn't be difficult to install dispensers which were tamper proof?

    Disliked: 

    No toilet roll! Shower block a little grubby. Widespread use of big fire pits creates a lot of nuisance smoke. Two dogs roaming off the lead. Noise from two large family groups late into night.

    The play area

    Disliked: 

    Toilets were not kept clean and on arrival we called the number on the board to be told that there had been a power surge on the top field so there was no electricity in the Shepard’s hut we had booked, the man we spoke to said he would be up later to fix up some some lighting but never appeared. We spent the night with no electricity, had no apology or compensation for this. We left before 8am in the morning which ruined our stay.

    Friendly staff, and looked after with goof toilet/shower facilities

    Disliked: 

    Uneven pitches, had to take our own toilet paper, and charged £5 a night for a dog, and didn't provide a dog bin. Does make me feel its an excuse to charge, as everything is extra.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. Please could you kindly provide me with your booking reference number? As we do not charge for dogs as stated on the website dogs are free of charge?!.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Local attractions

Trail time? You might want to begin with the Roman Fosse Way, passing by the towns of Stow-on-the-Wold (25 minutes' drive) and Moreton-in-Marsh (25 minutes). Or from Lechlade-on-Thames (half an hour), perhaps you'll roll right on to the Thames Path, if you’re not drawn into the water with watersports such as canoeing.

Characterful towns and villages are a Cotswolds staple and it shows… Burford (15 minutes) is boxed full of unusual shops, pubs and tea rooms, while in Witney (20 minutes), you’ve got classic entertainment courtesy of a multi-screen cinema, shops and leisure centre mixed in with markets and the historic Cogges Manor Farm.

In Woodstock (15 minutes) there’s more history inside The Oxfordshire Museum. Like Chipping Norton (10 minutes), the place has a swimming pool, shops, pubs and tea rooms galore, to add to Chipping Norton’s theatre and cinema.

Historic are many of the houses around here, and that includes the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blenheim Palace (15 minutes), the Jacobean Chastleton House (20 minutes) and or the 18th-century Buscot Park (35 minutes).

For more activities in the throw of it all, there’s Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens (25 minutes) and Bourton-on-the-Water’s equestrian centre, brewery and motoring museum (half an hour).

Must see

  • Blenheim Palace (6.0 miles)
  • Chastleton House (8.7 miles)
  • Ashmolean Museum (12.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Chastleton House (8.6 miles)
