Both the Island CL and the Cricket Bat field are located right on the river bank, great for fishing, but we stayed on the Cricket Bat field with lovely trees for shade when it is really hot. Although hot, on the second day it was quite windy so a windbreak would not go amiss. Just a basic CL but on the Cricket Bat field there is only water so you have to drive up to the Island CL for chemical disposal and waste disposal which is not a problem. The Thames path runs on the other side of the river so riverside walks available. Fishing tackle shop, with bait, in the village of Clanfield, just down the road and also a lovely deli/cafe/Post Office to be found here together with the Plough Hotel and Clanfield Tavern. Swan Hotel/riverside pub just by the entrance and also pubs/supermarkets(Tesco/Waitrose/Aldi), pharmacies and butchers, garage, etc in nearby Faringdon. Beautiful setting when the weather is dry but only downside is you have to drive down a gravel track, with some potholes, to access the site and that can get very messy when it is wet. Also the access to the Island CL, just in front of the chemical disposal/water point, can get very muddy in times of heavy rain as the water runs down off the bridge.
