This was our first family camping trip after buying our voyager 6 tent last year, so I didn't have any other camp sites to compare Green hill Leisure Park to.
This was a last minute booking, I called on the morning and the man took our name and told us to just arrive.
When you arrive there is a long drive way down to the farm/park (where there are a few pigs to look at) which is nice as it means your away from the main road. Theres a reception (with a small shop to stock up on essentials, and sweets!) I went in and paid our £52 for the 2 nights inc EHU, the man then showed me on the cctv where to meet someone who would take us to our pitch.
We drove through the gate and was shown to our pitch where we then set up. It was a nice size pitch with little trees separating them. We were round the side where it was nice and quiet.
The park has a play area for the children (no swings though which my daughter wanted) but there was a couple of football goals. The children spent most of there time here playing football with the other children, we felt it was safe enough for them to go down on their own, so I could read my book in peace!. There is a games room which I think needs a bit updating (i couldn't find any ping pong bats or balls to use) inside the games room are a few leaflets of the local area inc a indian take away who deliver to the park. There is also a fridge/freezer which looked quite full.
I think there is a takeaway fish and chip van on a friday evening but we weren't there on a friday so we didn't see it. We went to Kidlington (about 5 mins away by car) and had some lovely fish and chips and there's a Sainsburys and a Harvester where we had dinner one night.
We also visited Blenheim Palace (only about 10mins by car) on one of the days, which we enjoyed, we didn't go into the palace just the gardens where there is a butterfly farm a maze and a little train, it is quite expensive but in a lovely little village called Woodstock.
Bicester Outlet village is only about 10/15 mins away, we didn't go there but drove past it to go into Bicester which is also nice.
There is a lovely lake on the park which seemed quite popular with people fishing and some animals that you can walk around and look at (Chickens, Alpacas, Goats etc)
The toilets/showers were always kept clean - the shower cubicles were big, with a mop to mop up after you. The washing up facilities were also clean.
Overall we really enjoyed our first 2 nights camping at Greenhill
