Bladon Chains Caravan Club Site, Bladon Road, Woodstock, OX20 1PT, Telephone 01993812390
To find site:- From Oxford or Woodstock on the A44 at roundabout take the A4095 signed for Bladon/Witney. After 350 metres turn right into minor road and site is on the left in 200 metres.
Bladon Chains is open from the end of March to early November for members only. There 92 pitches, about a third are on gravel hardstandings. The site is divided into two sections either side of Reception. Pitches are set out along each side of the site roads leaving plenty of space in the middle so it does not seem crowded. Whilst the pitches are level the topography of the site is undulating. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and they also have a digital TV hook-up but you must provide your own cable. There is a single toilet block situation approximately in the middle of the site and includes a wash up area and laundry. There are also service points in each pitching area plus a single recycling point. For younger children there is a playground and a knockabout area for older ones. Reception sells milk and newspapers can be ordered. Near to Reception is an information hut with details of attractions out and about. The site does not have WiFi and I found that mobile broadband via my Vodafone dongle could only get a GPRS signal. Near the site entrance there is a late arrivals area which can take about 3 units although I could not see any hook-up points. During our stay there was a mobile Fish and Shop that called on Tuesday evenings. Date of visit April 2011.
This site is only a stone’s throw from Blenheim Palace where Club members get a discount on production of their payment receipt. It was the birth place of Winston Churchill and he is buried at Bladon Church which is a reasonably short walk from the campsite. Woodstock is in walking distance of the site ( alongside the busy A44) with a selection shops, pubs and restaurants. Oxford city centre is half an hour away by bus. For shopping the is a good small Co-Op supermarket in Woodstock but for a wider choice you would need to travel to Oxford. Click on thumbnails below for bigger picture.
