Wow, what a superb site! My husband and I with our 2 boys booked for 4 nights and having read previous reviews thought it sounded great. We were a bit sceptical as all the electric hookup pitches had been booked, but ice blocks were available to hire for 50p each (+1 deposit) and it was absolutely no problem not having electricity!

Site was spotless, staff very friendly and helpful and we were able to chose our spot.

Play area was quite small for the children, but the ball field was plenty big enough for the boys to play football in.

Site was very quiet at night, even for August. The hedges around the site, cordoning off sections make it more private for your area.

We never had to queue for a shower or the loo, and they were ample for the size of the site, just remember it's closed between 11am-12.30pm for cleaning!

Local pub just a couple of minutes walk away (Three Magpies) serving good food and drinks, very friendly and catered for the children, having their own play area in the beer garden.

Canal also very close and turning left you are able to walk to Devizes (approx 4 miles), which we did, very beautiful and peaceful.

Longleat is about 30-40 mins drive away, Bath about 30 mins drive (very busy, but we found a reasonably priced long stay car park off Charlotte Street). Stonehenge was easily reached in about 40 mins. Cheddar Gorge slightly further afield, depending on which route you pick 45 mins-1 hour away. All worthwhile days out whilst staying at this site.

Weather was fantastic for our stay and as we enjoyed the site, we decided to stay for an extra 2 nights, enabling us to visit Cheddar and Bath too!

Food shopping wasn't a problem either as Devizes and Melksham both have Sainsbury's and Trowbridge has a Tesco. The shop on site stocks the essentials like bread, milk, eggs, soft drinks, crisps etc.

Would definitely like to visit again and highly recommend a visit here, well done all who manage the site - it's excellent.

Stayed a week on this site and was wonderfully clean and well maintained. Although it rained on and off it drained really well. Area was lovely with a 4 mile walk from devizes along the canal back to the site well worth it.
We ate at the pub next to the site on the first night and did not enjoy the meal at all. 5.25 for a starter of 1 slice of toast with a couple of garlic mushrooms on top. The main courses were average and my wife left hers. We overheard someone on the site complaining about the food as well, so it was not just us.

Loved the area and would go back again.

We have just returned from a week's stay at this site and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is definitely a site to relax on right next to the Avon and Kennet Canal, with excellent wash blocks (my husband did feel that the mens block would be better if it had more showers and less sinks in cubicles as he did have to wait every morning for a shower when the cubicles were empty)

The only criticism we have is that there were no recycling facilities whatsoever!

We ate at both the 3 magpies (at the entrance) and the Barge Inn (20 min walk along the canal) and would highly recommend the Barge Inn which we returned to. The food was absolutely delicious and well worth the money and walk!

This was the first time we had stayed in this area and it will not be the last. This is an excellent site and the staff were helpful and friendly. Very good facilities which were kept spotless. Only 1 minor complaint, it could have done with another shower and toilet cubicle, as it was kept very busy when we were there.

TV reception was good via an aerial. Just outside the site entrance is the Three Magpies Inn which also has it's own small site with hookups. The bus stop into Devizes is about 50 yds from the pub on the opposite side of the road. The bus runs about every hour.

If you come out of the site and turn right for about 20 yds you come to the canal. If you go right along the canal for about 20 minutes you come to the Barge Inn, were you can sit outside and watch the boats go by while sampling the local ale.

If you went in the opposite direction along the canal you will come to Devizes, but this is a good stretch of the legs.

Devizes has a market on Thursdays.

Great staff, large pitches, terrific showers, nice landscaping. Very particular on rules, regs and pitching - but they are doing it to make sure everyone is happy.

We went as a group and we weren't able to put our tents and day tents a bit closer together like we would prefer as it would break their 6m rule. But after seeing the way some sites cram them in (like the one next door!) I'm really not complaining. We took loads of kids, and although its didn't strike us as a big 'family' site they enjoyed the park, playing football and exploring the area.

We'll be returning.

Just got back from a very peaceful week here and cannot praise it enough. The hedges around the site give it a cosy feel. The showers have superb pressure,even better than my powershower at home. Shame the loos aren't a bit stronger flush though. Friendly helpful staff good facilities peaceful site and plenty of places nearby to visit. What more can I ask for. Oh and dozens of bunnies.
