1st March to 31st October
A family owned campsite since 1946, Swiss Farm Touring and Camping is a delightful site in a handy location, perfect for exploring the dreaming spires of Oxford, Windsor and even the bright lights of London.
A great site if you're looking for a quiet and peaceful place to enjoy your camping and caravan holidays, it is open from March until October and has 134 touring pitches, of which 101 are hardstanding – a range of pitches are available, electric, non-electric and all weather. In addition, seasonal pitches are available (from 1 March until 31 October). Caravans, motorhomes and tents are welcome, and this is a very nicely landscaped campsite with pitches that feel private. There's also a noise curfew from 11pm until 7am, to ensure everyone gets a good and relaxing night's sleep. Dog owners should note that dogs are permitted, but only at certain times of the year, so make sure you check before you book your pitch.
