A friend and I arranged to meet here as it seemed like a good location to meet halfway. Neither of us are from the area. Google maps took us both to the middle of an industrial estate (beware!). When I got back on track with a specific postcode there were no signposts, I just kept driving in the hope I’d come across it eventually. Up a single track road and found the car park at the top of the hill. It was full so had to do some squeezing in.
The walk itself was lovely!
Getting out was another matter! There were queues waiting to get down the hill due to the single track road and traffic coming up. Cars were parked all over the place, verges etc which made manoeuvring very difficult.
I did hear someone say they had never seen it so busy. A lovely walk but the route in and out made it less enjoyable. I wish I’d have been aware of some of this before I went.

Sad to see how run down Shotover has become. It used to be beautiful at this time of year, smothered in wild bluebells and gorse. Now it’s smothered in brambles, and the paths have become eroded from excessive footfall and mountain bikes.

In my previous review I stated that the map directions were incorrect as they had shotover park placed near White Horse Hill in South Oxfordshire, I am pleased to see this has been corrected at last. A great place to walk the dog with friends, family or solo. .. :-D

A really good place to go for a walk, sometimes though the signs for the routes can be confusing and it is easy to get lost but would recommend

We are so fortunate to have the park within 5 minutes of our home and regularly visit, we have 3 children of varying ages, 4-12 and they all love it up here. A great place to explore, play and spend the day. No matter the season it is a beautiful place. Would highly recommend it to all.

This place was great! It was full of nature and beauty, zero-to-none air and noise pollution, so overall I would say great! If you’re around the area it’s a great place for friends to hang out with you, or if you just want some relaxing alone-time, this is a place for you!

So close to the city, yet lots of walks in ancient woods. Lots of dogs and some cyclists so have to be awake. Muddy in parts. A good find.

Lovely place to visit, amazing country park area so close to Oxford, but its lovely and quiet, an amazing find. And with waymarked walks, and leaflets availble by the notcie board (in plastic boxes to keep them dry). Well looked after.

Lovely place for a good peaceful walk just a short drive from Ox centre. You'll walk through large wide fields and patches of forest.
