The Owner Says
About The Real Campsite at Park Farm
Tents – yes. Caravans, campervans, dogs – no. Large groups are not permitted unless hiring the entire site.
Viewing your surroundings is always a good way to start. Faringdon Folly Tower, a unique 100ft tower built by the eccentric Lord Berners in the 1930s, offers fantastic panoramas of the Thames Valley and, a mile or so further north, Radcot Bridge and Lock is a wonderful spot to stop for a picnic after. It's the oldest bridge across the Thames and was the scene of many battles, today, away from the lock itself, this area of the river is also particularly popular for wild swimming. To the south lies Uffington: home to the famous white horse; a hill figure carved into the chalk escarpment and thought to date back to 1000BC. For more farm fun, kids love Roves Farm (01793 763939) in nearby Sevenhampton, which has daily animal handling and feedings, as well as tractor rides and more. For something more exotic, spot rhinos, giraffes and zebras at Cotswold Wildlife Park (01993 823006), 25 minutes away. The dreamy spires of Oxford are also an easy 30-minute drive. Spend a day exploring its 38 colleges, pop into the various museums and visit the labyrinth of boutique shops in the covered market. And, if the weather's good, indulge in a spot of punting (01865 515978).
Food & Drink
If you're venturing off-site, you don't need to stumble far – it's a 10 minute walk to The Snooty Mehmaan (01367 242260), a multi-award winning Indian restaurant, including 'Best Asian Restaurant in Oxfordshire'. For something more traditional, The Lamb at Buckland (01367 870484) – serving local brews and seasonal hearty pub fayre – is a pleasant hour's stroll away (there's a bus that can drop you back). Faringdon town centre, meanwhile, is home to plenty of other eateries. A few doors down, the Faringdon Coffee House (01367 241574) has a handful of outdoor tables – grab a slice of cake and watch the world pass by. The Trout Inn (01367 870382) at Tadpole Bridge is a touch on the pricey side, but worth it for its location on the banks of the Thames with views across the Oxfordshire countryside.
