The campsite/farm from the canal towpath

General

  • 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. The site received a premises licence in 2017 too, so can now sell alcohol for supping on or off site.

Bring your camera to be on the tail of some smoking hot pics here: piglets regularly run around the site and there are native sheep and lambs, geese, ducks and chickens too.

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 (it has several portaloos but 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 you to feast upon, it's very unlikely you’ll be boar-ed...

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

    Once again the Pig Place didn’t disappoint. Great campsite, refreshing local cider in the outdoor bar and excellent food from the food truck. Lovely atmosphere and a great location. Felt that social distancing measures were appropriate and would not hesitate to go back.

    The staff were so friendly and helpful. I don’t understand the reviews about rudeness because once they show you around and check you in, they just leave you to it. The dogs were so so sweet , piggies and ducks were fun to look at as well. A great view to look out onto the canal whilst reading/ chatting with friends. A very wholesome experience. Portaloos added to the fun.

    Disliked: 

    Didn’t feel comfortable to sit on the sofas as they didn’t look clean (I.e. had bird poo on ) and was wary of current situation with corona virus.

Local attractions

The Oxford Canal is the oldest mainline canal in England and has walkies all along its 77-mile towpath (borrow one of The Pig Place dogs to escort you along the route), passing some of the most scenic spots and villages in Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire. It’s mostly easy hoofing along the whole route with few hills: carve a slice into a day trip or afternoon amble.

Pack a picnic (of bacon sarnies) and go to Banbury four miles away to tackle the modernised towpath walk from Banbury to Cropredy via the newly added glass bridge, waterworks gallery and museum spanning the canal along the way.

A day at dramatic Stratford-upon-Avon should be on the cards in any hol – especially if the Royal Shakespeare Company are performing Ham-let…

Must see

  • Stowe Landscape Gardens (18.2 kilometres)
  • Blenheim Palace (19.0 kilometres)
  • Silverstone Circuit (19.5 kilometres)
