Friars Court - Beauty in rural Oxforshire
Maltese Cross

Boats & Caravans

The land to the south of Friars Court is bordered by a mile-long stretch of the River Thames and water has always been an attraction for leisure as well as wildlife. Two meadows by the river are now caravan sites, one is a Caravan & Motorhome Club certified location (CL) located on a two acre island on the Thames and is licensed for up to five vans.  A ¼ of a mile downstream is the quiet Rally Field, inter-planted with cricket bat willow trees, which can accommodate up to forty caravans when booked by an organised Rally. Both fields have access to basic amenities of water, litter and a sanitation point (there is no electricity hook-up).

The CL and Rally Field are open from late spring until the autumn and coarse fishing is permitted from the 16th of June. Anglers should take note that in addition to the National Rod license they also need a local license. This can be issued by the [voluntary] resident manager who looks after the caravan sites during the summer months.

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

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

The Booking Calendar's on this website relate to Group Visits and Weddings at Friars Court, not the caravan site. To check availability and to book a caravan pitch, or for more information on boat moorings, please contact Charles Willmer at
