The Owner Says
Welcoming campervans, caravans and the humble tenting camper, The Pig Place is open to all and it’s signage sums up the general atmosphere. The focus here is not on plush camping pitches with power-showers and strings of wooden clad chalets, no, first and foremost this is a simple, yet delightful small holding and only after the animals, the farm shop and the mouth-wateringly good food van came the campsite.
The resulting ethos is fantastic. The camping is wonderfully rustic – there are portable toilets and no showers on the site – but that certainly doesn’t mean it is neglected, with Dean and Sara always on hand and inviting you over when it’s feeding time to join in and see the pigs. It’s inclusive, but not overbearing, and their conscious decision to keep everything small-scale and low key, makes it a sociable and thoroughly relaxed place to pitch.
Visit the farm shop, selling meat, free range eggs and veg, is truly enviable – though if you envy it too much you may end up buying a couple of hens to take home with you – and the cooking trailer serves an unbeatable home-reared breakfast, luscious lunches and, if your lucky, sumptuous suppers. There is further opportunity to tickle your taste buds at the 'pop-up' bar converted from the old pig trailer and now called 'Trotters', here you can imbibe draught lager and cider plus local craft ales and ciders as well as an expanding gin collection.
Nearby, the town of Banbury has enough independent shops and restaurants to keep you busy and the immediacy of the M40 means seemingly far off towns like Oxford and Warwick are actually just 40 minutes or so away.
The Owner Says
If we're your kind of place, we look forward to meeting you. Our camping areas are 'child-free' and cater for motorhomes, caravans, campervans and tents. Being canalside you're welcome to visit by narrowboat too.
Our breakfast is unrivalled. Fabulous food with a fantastic view over the Oxford Canal and Cherwell Valley - what's not to like?
This site is still very much a working farm, so the camping experience is of the more rustic sort. The grassed tent and caravan paddock is by the livestock area, so there's always something to see – feeding time is an experience not to be missed! There simple, festival-style portable toilets but no showers, chemical waste disposal and a washing up area. Campfires (designated canalside area with sofas) and BBQs are permitted. Some road noise.
