The Old Dairy Farm Caravan and Camping: Goat enclosure (photo added by manager on 07/27/2022)

General

  • Family-run dog-friendly farm site in Cropredy village
  • A 20-minute drive to British Motor Museum; 40 mins to Blenheim Palace
  • Wood-fired pizzas on busy weekends; a short walk to pubs and cafés

Fancy a farm stay, but not so keen on the idea of navigating little country lanes? Set off to Oxfordshire and The Old Dairy Farm Caravan and Camping: getting here involves a mere 10-minute detour from the M40 at Banbury.

That location makes this a most handy spot for motorway stopovers, but there’s plenty around to please those who choose to stay longer too. However long you stay at this family-run farm, you’ll not want to miss out on meeting the pygmy goats and free-range chickens and peering into the aviary; once the kids have done that, send them off for a proper run about on the large recreational field to tire them out before bedtime.

Handy too are the smart and well-maintained facilities, including a toilet block, showers, a washing-up area, water supply and Elsan point. The wood-fired pizza oven gets going on busy weekends (and it’s also available for private hire if you’re having a gathering).

Don’t worry if there’s no pizza action while you’re here: it’ll take just a few minutes to walk to Cropredy’s pubs, cafés and shop (or its play park). It’s also possible to walk to the Oxford Canal and River Cherwell for waterside wanders, and a short drive will get you out into the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for more walks, plus golf courses, fishing lakes and National Trust estates.

In the main this is a peaceful site, but it's worth noting that a rail line passes fairly close by so you may hear a bit of noise from the pitches (or even spot trains – much to the delight of young rail enthusiasts).

Good owners, park and animals for the kids and pub walking distance.02/26/2024

    Owners are very informative and accommodating. Great to see goats and birds on the site. For anyone that likes trains you can see them go past close to the site. They didn’t disturb us but probably would be loud on the grass pitches next to the line. We were on the gravel the other side. Nice park on site and 2 pubs and cafes within walking distance.

    Disliked: 

    Not sure whether this is standard as we’ve just started out but the grey waste needed to go in the loo type dispenser with the loo waste. Was hard to lift the container and had to lean it on the surface where’s lots of toilet waste splash back. So would be great to have a ground level drain for that.

From the manager...

There is a grey water waste drain behind the electric post, where the water tap is, at ground level. Sorry you missed it.

    It is a great campsite with easy access around the site and lots of room on the pitches. We're relatively new to towing so we appreciated no tricky turns into the site and lots of space. The day of arrival, we received a text with clear instructions as to what to do and even which entry roads to avoid due to flooding which was extremely handy. The toilets and shower block were clean and of a good standard. Our little boy loved the wooden play area, seeing the trains and also the ability to see the goats. The local area has a nice dog-friendly cafe - Mulberry Cafe - which serves a great breakfast and is just a short walk away. It was a shame the falconry or aviary section wasn't open on this occasion. We'll be back to visit again for sure!

    This is our fourth stay within a year at The Old Dairy Farm, and won’t be our last!
    We personally love the relaxed persona while having all the amenities close by we could need. The facilities onsite are clean and while basic provide everything you could need. There are goats which our children adore (Oreo and mushroom, not their names by nicknames by the children are firm favourites) as well as a falconry and exotic bird exhibit. The park is basic but again all you need while games of cricket/football regularly turn into sitewide games. The Braesnose Arms a short walk away serves fantastic food and a superb range of drinks, definitely worth a visit.
    The Old Dairy Farm was our first ever caravan site and will continue to be a firm favourite.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Coming to the Cotswolds for a bit of fresh air and gentle activity? Set forth for fishing at Clattercote Reservoir, or tee off at Cherwell Edge Golf Course; both are about 10 minutes away by car.

Country walking routes are plentiful too, of course, as are fine buildings to mooch around. Blenheim Palace (40 minutes’ drive) is perhaps the best known of all the Oxfordshire stately homes (and with good reason, for ’tis fab) but it’s worth taking a look at some others too, including Farnborough Hall (10 minutes), Sulgrave Manor (20 minutes) and Upton House and Gardens (20 minutes).

For a break from the classic Cotswolds activities, head out to meet the big birds of Fir Tree Falconry (15 minutes) or sigh over all the shiny machines at the British Motor Museum (20 minutes). And if you’re in need of a tipple or two to accompany your barbecue back at base, there are some excellent local ones to be acquired at Hook Norton Brewery (25 minutes) and the Cotswolds Distillery (half an hour).

Must see

  • Compton Verney (17.1 kilometres)
  • Silverstone Circuit (20.6 kilometres)
  • Stowe Landscape Gardens (22.3 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Farnborough Hall (5.1 kilometres)
  • Canons Ashby (11.7 kilometres)
