Friars Court - Beauty in rural Oxforshire
Maltese Cross

Boats & Caravans

The land lying to the south of Friars Court is bordered by a mile-long stretch of the River Thames, both the river and its associated wildlife are an attraction for walkers, boaters, fisherman and caravaners. Frances Willmer established the riverside caravan sites at Friars Court over 40 years ago and The Island CL is the only site of its kind on the banks of the Thames in Oxfordshire. The entire three-acre Island is registered with the Caravan & Motorhome Club as a 'five van' Certified Location (CL).

On the north side of The Island CL is an old backwater which is now used as permanent mooring for thirty boats.

A ¼ of a mile downriver is the secluded Cricket Bat Field which can accommodate up to thirty caravans as part of an organised rally. Both fields have access to basic amenities of water, litter and a sanitation point (there is no electricity hook-up).

The Island CL and Cricket Bat Field are open from late spring until autumn, subject to weather conditions. Coarse fishing is permitted from the 16th of June, anglers should take note that in addition to a National Rod license they also need a local license.

Members of the Caravan and Motorhome Club only are allowed to stay on either site – camping / tents are not permitted.

A two-minute walk from the Island is the riverside pub Ye Olde Swan. Lunchtime and evening meals served, dog friendly. Please visit the Ye Olde Swan website for more information.
