We moved onto Huckleberry Farm at the end of March 2022. It was in a sad, neglected state and it is a work in progress. It is fast becoming a tidy and tranquil place to be.
We plan to provide equestrian services including pony therapy as well as producing our own fruit veg and with the help of some feathered friends; free range eggs! Welcome to Huckleberry farm! Pitch a tent or park a motor home, we can accommodate your style of camping! Come and meet the ponies, chickens & sheep and find a spot to pitch your tent. For those with a motor home there is plenty of parking as you pull in off the road .
We have a portaloo on site and access to drinking water. There is some road noise as the A34 bypass is a couple of fields away but the air is clear and fresh with a totally rural outlook.
The village of Bletchington is 1.5 miles away with a local pub and a coop. Or you can drive into Bicester for a full range of shops and eateries, including the famous Bicester Village designer shopping outlet. Oxford is equally close for the cultural experien and this can be accessed most easily from Islip train station just 1.5miles from Huckleberry Farm.
You will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but literally 10 minutes from everywhere!

A work in progress
We had a lovely weekend with friends and our children (10 months, 21 months and 3 years). Aside from the road noise (A34) the location was great and we enjoyed sunny weather. We built a campfire and just relaxed with nothing in particular to do. The owners have cleared the ground in a wooded area at the rear of the camping field and this was a pleasant space to be with shade and suitable ground for fires.
However, there are a few negatives. When we arrived, the tools that had been used to clear the wooded area were scattered around. These included scythes and a bow saw. This was in spite us informing the owners that we were bringing young children. There was a swing set, wooden tipi and fire pit but these were still in boxes. It felt a bit like we were being shown what we could have won as the kids would have loved the play equipment. The ground in the field and wooded area was NOT suitable for a crawling baby and was even hazardous for a toddler as there were lots of small stumps, hawthorn and spiky grass. The stream advertised on the listing was dry/muddy which was a shame as we had taken swim stuff for the kids. The portaloo was inadequate as it could not be flushed and without a chemical or water flush the ‘solids’ got stuck in the bowl (yuk).
We felt that the price we were charged (£30 per night) was way too high for what we got. I would expect to pay £10-£15 per night for a very basic farm site like this. I think it could be lovely but they are not there yet.

Wild camping at Huckleberry Farm
Charlotte was very friendly and welcoming. We had the place to ourselves and were able to pitch the tent in a lovely small wooded area at the far end of the property. Enjoyed an evening camp fire and saw some deer at twilight. A good almost wild camping experience.
