The Caravan and Motorhome Club Launches new Pop-Up Campsite at Blenheim Palace
(8th September 2020) Due to popular demand the Caravan and Motorhome Club has introduced a new pop-up campsite in the stunning grounds of Blenheim Palace, with prices starting at just £23.10* per night for two adults.
The campsite has been created as a result of the Club’s nearby and very popular Bladon Chains campsite running at capacity for much of the summer.
The new pop-up campsite is open for 50 days from Friday 11th September to Sunday 1st November inclusive. All visitors will receive 30% off Blenheim Palace admission tickets for the Palace, Park and Gardens and 20% off at the Blenheim Palace Gift Shop.
Harvey Alexander, director of marketing and membership services at the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: “All of our UK sites have been incredibly popular this summer and Bladon Chains, (always a busy site) has been in particular demand. We are constantly looking to offer our members new experiences and we are delighted to work with Blenheim Palace to offer something truly unique, the chance to stay in such close proximity to the Palace in its beautiful grounds”.
The campsite is located just outside the wall of the Palace garden, a dedicated UNESCO World Heritage Site. As well as being treated to stunning garden views, visitors can tour Blenheim Palace, home to the Dukes of Marlborough since the eighteenth century and birthplace of Winston Churchill. The nearby Bladon Church is also in walking distance with Churchill’s modest but memorable grave.
Whilst in the area a visit to Oxford is also a must and one of the easiest and most pleasant ways to see this historic university town is by open topped bus. For those interested in art and archaeology, the Ashmolean Museum houses intriguing exhibitions spanning five floors. If more shopping is the order of the day, nearby Bicester Village with its designer outlets is also a great day out. In complete contrast, the site is also within easy reach of the lovely Cotswolds with its picture postcard villages of Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Northleach.
On the site all pitches measure 11 metres x 10 metres and include space for either one caravan, motorhome, tent or trailer tent and one car only, with a maximum occupancy of 8 people. Pitches are allocated on arrival on a first come first served basis. As a pop-up campsite there are temporary shower and toilet facilities, fresh water and all pitches have an electrical hook up. For those wanting to make the most of the end of summer, bbqs are allowed. *Each pitch for two adults costs £23.10 per night; additional adult guests cost £7.40 each night and children from 5-17 £2.20 each night, plus a booking fee of £1. Under 5’s go free and dogs are welcome.
