Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the maximum amount of people we can accommodate?
If hiring the whole site we can accommodate 45 people overnight.
The King & Queen (Longcot) and the The Woodman Inn (Fernham) are both 1 mile from the site. Each pub has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, great food and a log fire.
If you are taking the B&B package you can pre-order takeaway fish ‘n’ chips from either or stop off on the saturday after one of our circular walks. If you decide to venture there for a Saturday night drink then they may even offer a courtesy taxi service back to the site. See more here http://www.longcotkingandqueen.com/ and http://thewoodmaninn.net/
Is there any B&B accommodation nearby?
The King and Queen has 7 newly renovated rooms. So for those in your party that might want to skip the more informal sleeping arrangements this is a very good option.
The ancient Uffington White Horse is well worth a visit. After a short drive, you can hike to the top and take in beautiful views over Oxfordshire. Otherwise, leave your car and access the footpaths from the site, visiting one of the many country pubs en route (we provide ordnance survey maps).
Oxford is a 40 minute drive from the site which is best visited in the day for punting and sight seeing.
Please do not hesitate to call Sarah if you would like some advice on the area or have a particular activity you would like to find locally.
Can we bring our vehicles onto the site?
Yes. There is ample parking space approximately 50 yards from the site and pulley carts to ease the unloading/loading.
What is our season?
We run from the first weekend in April to the second weekend in October.
Is there electricity on site?
Each venue has solar power, providing power for lights and mobile phone charging. They also have their own portable music system to play your favourite tunes from. If you can manage without hairdryers/straighteners for the weekend it would be appreciated, but if this is a struggle then some 12v appliances can be provided.
Are there shops nearby and can we get a supermarket delivery?
There are 3 large supermarkets, Waitrose, Aldi and Tescos at Faringdon only 4 miles from us. Our site address is registered with Tesco who are happy to deliver.
