Simple camping surrounded by all the delicious Oxfordshire and Cotswolds village food offerings

Cotswolds Camping is run by two very hard-working friends (with a little help from their husbands). No one lives on the site, but a lot of work goes on in the background to ensure it’s a well organised, extremely relaxed experience for everyone who stays.

The campsite is on the edge of the beautiful market town of Charlbury, with stunning views across the Evenlode Valley. It offers a couple of grass fields flanked by pine trees, with walks across open countryside accessible through a gate at the back. There’s a compact and bijou summerhouse for those seeking indoor space in inclement weather; the washing facilities are all housed in the yard next to the field; and there’s even a small modern kitchen. So all in all it’s a very civilised affair.

 Caravans aren’t banned, but the simplicity of this site appeals far more to dedicated tenters. It’s a perfect place to kick back, fill your lungs with fresh air, read the paper, and listen to the surrounding cows, sheep, and chickens. Oh, and waking up to the sounds of resident wood pigeons is priceless.

 As well as being a great springboard for visiting the surrounding Oxfordshire and Cotswolds villages, with their honey-coloured stone buildings, Cotswolds Camping is surrounded by yumminess of the food variety. Wander into Charlbury for its many pubs, or head to the little village of Chadlington for a community-managed shop at its best, complemented by a coffee shop that sprawls out on to the pavement a few doors down. You’re not in the middle of nowhere here, but it feels like it.
