The Real Campsite at Park Farm
A former glamping site that has shunned the frills to return to good ol' fashioned camping, Park Farm is place that knows a thing or two about hospitality. Bring your own tent to enjoy spectacular views, a peaceful meadow location and bucket loads of space but still expect a few handy luxuries. Every pitch has its own 'en-suite' toilet – a proper flushing loo housed inside a wooden structure next to your tent space – and you'll also find a picnic bench, campfire pit and a pair of the friendliest campsite owners in Oxfordshire.

The Owner Says
Park Farm is a 370 acre mixed arable and sheep farm nestling on the edge of the picturesque village of Littleworth. With just seven pitches across the site, it's not somewhere you're short of space and, if you come between April and early May, you might be lucky enough to see a lamb being born from your very tent. There's great walking from the farm, with the historic market town of Faringdon and the Thames at Radcot both within an easy half-day jaunt. Just 20 minutes downstream, is where the Thames meets the Isis, overlooked by the dreaming spires of Oxford – a haven for history buffs and keen shoppers alike. The river's graceful willows and lush pastures are a far cry from the busy riverbanks in London, which is just an hour and a half's drive away.
Our favourite spot
Tents only, great for families and couples. Strictly no caravans, motorhomes, campervans, dogs. No Hen/Stag parties and large groups unless booking the entire site in advance only. No walk-ins - pre-book in advance only.
The local area
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.

Keeping to a tiny number of pitches has been a stroke of genius at Park Farm. There's so much space to play in and ample time to enjoy it. But between the North Downs and the Cotswolds, it's the landscape that does most of the hard work. The views are positively dreamy.
