Oxenleaze Farm Caravan Park – Facilities

The caravans are set in a park around a landscaped, tree-lined meadow and we have recently extended this into a 2 acre adjoining field which enjoys lovely, far-reaching views across rolling fields.

Being away from it all a car is really essential. We have no near neighbours, just quiet leafy lanes and undulating farmland so you are sure to relax and feel close to nature. The surroundings can truly be described as un-commercialised and provide many opportunities to see rare birds and wild life, as well as seeing all the farm animals in their natural environment. Don’t forget to bring your camera and binoculars!

We are only 10 minutes drive from Wiveliscombe, Somerset (6mls). Local shopping facilities include – a small supermarket (open late, most days), Post Office, butchers, chemist, newsagents, Bank and several Inns, etc.

oxen19-aA popular facility at Oxenleaze is our heated swimming pool, which is available throughout the season at no extra charge.

Children and non-swimmers must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times, so if Dad’s gone fishing for a while, what better way for the rest of the family to enjoy themselves?

oxen12Our Laundry Room is equipped with all the essentials whilst on holiday and will make the “chores” seem not so bad after all.

oxen15A former stone barn has now been converted into a spacious Games Room where pool and table tennis can be played by the more energetic! A pay-phone is provided and there is plenty of local information and maps on display.

We are open from Easter to January and sincerely look forward to welcoming you to Oxenleaze.

There are a great variety of things to do locally – walking, riding, sailing, sightseeing, windsurfing, touring or trout fishing (we are close to Wimbleball Lake and Clatworthy Reservoir), but Oxenleaze is renowned for its excellent coarse fishing, and many venture no further than our lakes. Truly a “fisherman’s paradise”, the 3 lakes occupy 2 acres in a beautiful valley setting, only a short walk (500m) from your doorstep and you can drive to within 50m.

coarse fishing

It is extremely well stocked with carp, tench, roach, rudd and bream and there is no closed season. All fish, which must be returned to the water after fishing, can be caught on maggot casters, live maggots, bread, sweetcorn and luncheon meat.

“We chose Oxenleaze Farm to buy our holiday home because of its quiet, peaceful location and the views over the Somerset countryside. The park itself is beautifully maintained with lots of green, open spaces and the owners are always ready with help and advice if anything is needed. There is a heated indoor swimming pool (again, very well maintained) and the park is open for ten months of the year. The 25 static caravans are well spaced and all have more than adequate space for sitting out.

If peace, quiet and ‘away from it all’ is what you are looking for – Oxenleaze is the ideal place!”
