Without wishing to tread on anybody's toes, I have just sent an enquiry to the Greedy Goose here: http://www.thegreedygoosemoreton.co.uk/index.asp

Have a look - it's very central, near to Moreton-in-Marsh, easy to get to and prices are not too bad. Lots of places to ride out to - including the NMM on the A45. I know this pub quite well and it ticks all our boxes. Just waiting for a reply. I will let you know what they reckon.

Cheers

Hi Stu....from the homepage blurb...


"The Gate Hangs High is situated between the market towns of Banbury and Chipping Norton, close to the village of Hook Norton. A traditional pub with a warm atmosphere serving good food and traditional ales from Hook Norton Brewery.Our accommodation comprises of 3 double rooms and 1 twin room, all en-suite. the rooms are set across a small courtyard, separate from the pub itself. With ample parking, a large beer garden and a campsite with 5 electric hook-up points and further space for tents"

the 10 tents is talking about those big family frame tents.....

If anybody is further interested, I can go and see Ali (the Guvnor) and take some photos which I can put online.....

Cheers

@Speedy23 I stand corrected

I looked at the booking page and it just showed 2 rooms a double or a twin obviously you just select which you want and can book one if available

Looking on google maps the camping field looks huge which we could easily squeeze more than 10 on but not sure if there is any regulations in place that has put that limit of 10 on :?
