Here are a few questions we have already been asked.

Can we bring our own cool boxes?

You can bring your own cool box, however they cannot be the plugged type. The off grid nature of our location is not geared up to 240v power.  There is a small freezer section in the shared fridge for you to make ice for drinks, but not large enough to have a stock of ice packs refreezing. 

Do you provide wood for the campfire ?

A stock of wood is provided each day for the campfire. We know everyone loves to site around  fire of an evening, however we are also aware of the environmental impact of this and would respectfully suggest not over loading the fire and not helping yourself to the wood around the site for this purpose. 

Can we have a BBQ?

Yes! Each tent has its own BBQ, it is placed on fire retardant space close to the picnic table. We do ask that you use the BBQ in its intended location and do not move it to grassy or woodland areas for use. The portable gas camping stove can se used at your picnic table in addition to the BBQ.  There is charcoal & firelighters available to buy on site. 

What if its cold at night?

Each tent has a duvet, and in addition we have supplied blankets for each bed to use. We do hope the weather is kind and you will be warm enough with this, but there is also the option of lighting the wood burning stove - this is sometimes too much heat!

Can I arrive by public transport?

Not directly I'm afraid, there is a good bus service to the local village from Oxford or Didcot both of which have train stations, however there is a 40 minutes walk from the nearest bus stop to the site, and as advised, some of this is through a field. If you would like to come to the campsite and need to use public transport please do get in touch and we will try to arrange collection depending on your party size. 

Tell me more about compost toilets?

Compost toilets are safe clean and really easy to use. The are the most environmentally friendly option on a campsite that is close to a watercourse. The operation is a simple two way separator method, with the liquids diverting away from the solids. After use, a sprinkle of the saw dust is placed over the solids and the modesty bung is used to close off the vessel. We empty and clean the toilets regularly, unlike other sites we don't compost beneath the loos being used. It is in a safe location away from our guests. The only difference with this and a regular loo -  men need to sit when using them. 

Can I fish from the river bank?

Yes fishing is allowed, provided you have the appropriate license. We do not allow any live bait inside the tents, and would also request that you are mindful of other guests on site. 

 

Can we bring our dog?

Yes well behaved dogs are always welcome, and must be under your control at all times.

It is a rural setting with a variety of wildlife, so if your pet is nervous in these settings, or is likely to chase the animals we do reserve the right to ask you to keep them on a lead.
