17 Sep 2013: lesleycabby from Norfolk reviewed Cotswold View Caravan & Camping Park

The showers are luke warm there is no heating on in the shower block and it is cold, although not dirty the showers are not really clean either, they are far to small and he water wets everything even your clothes and towels and washes your hair even if you don't want it washed. The shower curtains are nasty things they stick to you as you shower and the disabled shower is not any better although more room the water is very cool and you have to push the button for water every 3-4 seconds so really hard to wash but the water flow is better in the disabled at least your clothes are not soaked. the whole shower blocks need up dating and being made bigger. I am only a small person but there isn't room to swing a cat in them. The play area looks quiet good but a bit dated, the farm animals look well looked after and the wooded walk is nice.

We stayed here with 3 families (2 caravans & a tent) on a very sunny weekend last september. I found this site absolutely great, as did the children. The park was one of the best kids parks we have seen on a campsite with an added bonus of table tennis & pool open hut (kept my son & brother-in-law busy for hours). There was a great wooded walk to see pigs & piglets which would escape & run around, great fun for adults & the kids. The open space of the pitches was good, plenty of room for 3 families to get together. A usefull shop, helpfull friendly staff. The toilet block was clean & fresh but cannot comment on the showers as i never used them. Overall a great campsite which i would use again.

We (being 2 adults / 2 children along with another family) have just returned from a 4-night break at this site and have all had a thoroughly good time.

To the reviewer who left the site due to noise from children, I suggest he visit adult-only sites in the future, as I'm afraid scream, shout and generally enjoy themselves is what small children do and small children do still exist outside school holidays!

Back to the site. Our pitches were fantastic with plenty of space. The play areas were a real bonus as our children were occupied the whole time and the various trails are brilliant. We loved seeing the goats and pigs in particular.

The shop is very well stocked with everything one could possibly need plus more and the fresh daily croissants were delicious.

My only niggle would be the shower blocks. Our first experience was not good as for a family site, I would have though there would be more family rooms available. The two in our nearest block were occupied so I had to take myself and two small daughters into one of the shower cubicles was rather cramped to say the least. Once we were all undressed, whilst struggling not to get all our clothes wet from the sodden floor, I pushed the button for the shower and out came freezing cold water! I kept pushing and no change. We eventually got ourselves dressed again and headed outside. The owner was there and although quickly rectified the problem, he did point out that he couldn't be expected to do anything unless he's told! Fortunately because of the cold water situation, most people had vacated the block and therefore we were then able to grab a family room. It was then we discovered that the water was piping hot and I ended up struggling to shower my two children with one of them screaming every time I put the shower head near her. The water remained this hot for the rest of our stay.

Other than this unfortunate experience, we would have no hesitation in recommending this site for reasons such as location, facilities, play areas, nature etc. etc.

All in all, a great time was had by all.

Fancying a short break in the Cotswolds we were thrilled to find this park. Set in 54 acres of wooded farmland over-looking the Evenlode Valley and Wychwood Forest, ideally placed for walking and touring the local villages of Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

Our pitch was very spacious with electric hook-up and its own water tap. The heated wash blocks were clean and a bath was available to hire for 50 pence - wonderful after a long days walking!

The small shop sells freshly baked bread and pastries daily, along with newspapers and a host of other essentials. They also offer gas exchange and free WiFi. A play area for the kids with a tennis court, pool table, air hockey and skittle alley made sure there was plenty to do. This is a friendly site and we will definitely book again and highly recommend it.

1 Oct 2008: stefanie from West sussex reviewed Cotswold View Caravan & Camping Park

We (2 adults and a dog) were looking forward to our well-deserved 5-day break at Cotswoldsview Caravan Park in Oxfordshire.
The weather forecast was brilliant for all the days we had booked from 19th September until 24th September 2008.

The pitches on their website are stated as ‘spacious’ and a picture just confirms this. Their website lets one think that this park is ideal to get some sort of peace, since the school holidays had been over for 2 weeks.

It also says: 'You could not make a better choice for your countryside holiday than here at Cotswold View.'

Wrong! After driving for about 3 hours to reach this caravan site, we could not believe what we saw when we just arrived at the reception to call in. We were greeted by sounds of shouting, screaming kids enjoying themselves in a play area right beside the entrance.

We called into reception and were then given a pitch number. I had asked if this pitch was further away from this play area and was answered ‘yes’.
We drove through the barrier and turned immediately to the right and there it was…our pitch. Right opposite this play area! A corner pitch, which wasn’t spacious at all. There was hardly enough space for our double axle plus porch awning. As there are no space dividers, the family next to us had put up an extra large family tent.
In fact, we were squeezed in to a piece of grass although we had booked weeks in advance.

After looking at this ‘pitch’, we thought ‘in no way do we stay here!’
We had stayed at caravan parks having play areas and family facilities most of our caravanning times, after the school holidays were over, but this place was just like a circus. All we could do was to leave as quickly as possible after getting our money back.

Tents should be in a different area or, if aloud beside caravans, at least mentioned on the website!
We were fooled by Cotswoldsview Caravan Park’s website, thinking we arrive on a sort of nice and quiet side to enjoy our break.

6 Aug 2008: Delia Lefley from Shropshire reviewed Cotswold View Caravan & Camping Park

An immaculate family-friendly site on a working farm with two large play areas, sub-divided into smaller sections with swings, roundabouts, climbing poles etc. There are mown-grass walks and trails with inviting 'wild' areas as well as farm animals to visit! Dogs are welcome too.
Generously-sized hedged pitches cater for 5/6 caravans each, with equally large areas for tents.
Good facilities include free push-showers and individual cubicles in the ladies; bathroom (50p for hot wter); disabled toilet and shower room.
The shop is well stocked with fresh bread, croissants and rolls, plus a wide selection of other basics.
Staff are friendly and willing to help - on an extremely busy weekend they still managed to squeeze a few more in!
And when the school holidays are over, it is ideal for visiting Blenheim, Oxford or just enjoying the peaceful countryside!
