    Great place, I was conceived under a Monkey Tree at Blenheim Palace and born just outside the palace walls, near the Bear Hotel:Smile:

    Bladon Chains CC site, we were there when they opened at the end of March, right next door to the Palace. They wouldn't be cheap but bags of room in the Palace grounds if they were amenable to the idea and a 30 minute bus ride into Oxford on the S2. 15 minute walk into Woodstock with plenty of pubs and restaurants. We're pretty well booked up this year but might find a window depending on dates. :Smile:

    Experience says book a date that suits you and the venue, when you have a date then put it up and thy followers will come, you will never ever find a date that suits a majority or minority..

    Good luck :thumb:
