2 visits this year, one with and one without the kids, in Feb and April. I was interested to see how they would enjoy it, as they hadn't been before. They loved the massive field and the play area was ok for messing about with other kids, though as the site is small we were conscious of having to keep the noise down for the mostly older people around.

The facilities block was warm and clean, the wardens were friendly but unobtrusive, the pitch allocation worked well. The site isn't the prettiest, especially in winter, but it's well maintained. The walks along the canal are perfect for a weekend, the Caen flight (and towpath) is usually shut over winter but the second time was open so we could have a good look, fascinating.

The pub next door did good enough food and decent beer and is cosy. The pub along the towpath (the Barge? Think the name has changed) was friendly and the food seemed a bit better, plus the garden overlooks the canal so is a good choice for a nice day.

We visited in January and it was freezing but the shower block is warm and very clean, the on site shop sells the basics but Devizes isnt far with all the big supermarkets there. We took the bus to Devizes which cost 4.60 return, go on a Thursday, market day and a lot busier, we had a meal in Wetherspoons which was excellent.

We walked a little way along the canal path and came back through the fields to the Three Magpies pub which serves excellent meals and allows dog in the bar area.

The wardens are friendly but the toilet blocks are closed far too early for cleaning and I think it should be a little later as we are on holiday after all, well we are not. We live in our van full time, but lots of people are and we don't want to get up early just to catch showers so have to get one in the afternoon. Also the water points are too far and there should be more of them. All the bins have been taken away and we are herded to the main bins at the entrance to get rid of our rubbish. We are ok but do feel sorry for the disabled people having to walk so far to the large wheely bins at the entrance

Met up with some friends here (they had motorhome). The wardens were very friendly and put us in adjoining pitches. You are shown to your pitch - which I think is great - saves the dilemma of choosing.

The site has a lot of hedges separating pitch areas so there is a great deal of privacy. The toilet block was always warm and clean. Although the middle of September the site was very busy but no wait for a shower in either male or female blocks. Washing up and laundry area good too. There is also a good dog walking area but for some reason you are not allowed to let them off the lead which is rather a shame. We walked the dog along the towpath instead.

The Three Magpies pub just by the entrance is good for food and a chat with the locals. It gets very busy at weekends and does a great Sunday Roast - recommend you book if you don't want to wait. There is also a good pub in Seend Village up the hill called The Bell which does very very good food. A bit of a puff going up but no problem walking back down!

On the main road just along the lane from the site are the bus stops. We caught the bus into Devizes one day - great for shopping with unusual individual shops and we went on market day so bargain fruit and veg. Melksham is worth a wander round too - Waitrose / Sainsburys etc. And a really wonderful butcher / pie shop called Newmans which cooks their own lovely meat pies.

We also caught the bus into Bath which took about 50 minutes. Hadn't been there for years but worth a visit - plenty to see and do and the new visitor centre for the Roman Baths is very interesting for all ages. They have done a great job on it.

The walks along the adjoining Kennet and Avon canal towpath are very pleasant too - the dog loved it.

Would highly recommend this site. Very convenient for lots of places to visit, easy access from the A365 and very convenient bus services.

Site was easily found but do not follow sat nav as it takes you up a bad road when you get near the site. But it is sign posted that its no good for caravans.

Very clean site, facilities very good staff very helpful.The strange thing was that there is only one basin other than the ones in the cubicles, which don't have soap. And only one hand dryer.

Pitches nice a nice level, we went hard standing.

Tv reception ok.

Reception had a few bits and bobs in it, Devizes has a Morrison and lots of other shops,

Pup near site did not like the food. Didn't go to the one up the tow path.

There is no recycling which my husband hates,

Park for kids yet again was rubbish, would not like to take a family of kids there for more than a day. Come camping and caravanning club whats wrong with you. The parks are rubbish.

Arrived after an 8 hour journey from North Yorkshire and were greeted by extremely friendly and helpful wardens who took us to our pitch and helped us get the caravan positioned correctly, before showing us where the facilities were. Despite us being one of the last arrivals they had kept us a pitch near the play area as we had asked for.

The toilets and showers were always clean and tidy and in two weeks we only had to wait once for a shower. The play area was the same as other camping and caravan sites and my three boys aged between four and seven loved it. There is also a field where you can go and play ball games as well as some walks through the millennium wood. There is a small shop on site which has the basics but not much else.

The Three Magpies does decent food and is only a very short walk from the site. We preferred the food at the Barge Inn where the food was nicer and you can watch the boats go down the canal. If you really cant be bothered cooking there are several local take aways that will deliver to the site.

There are plenty of supermarkets and decent shops in Devizes and also a cinema which we visited the one day it rained.

We visited Avebury, Stonehenge, Bath twice, and had some lovely walks down the towpath. The attraction which we all enjoyed the most was Bowood House. It has an amazing adventure playground for the children, beautiful gardens complete with caves and a huge lake and the admission price was very reasonable for a family of five.

Devizes is a fantastic site which we had a very enjoyable two weeks at and is a credit to the wardens. I would not hesitate to recommend this site.

This is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best sites I have stayed at in recent years. Although a reasonably small site because of the layout it seems much bigger and the pitches are not cramped.

There is a large field and play area and the toilets/showers are kept in a superb condition. Staff were very friendly and helpful, even offering a hand to get pitched in torrential rain when we arrived.

Devizes is 4 miles away and is a lovely town. If you don't need to drive it is worth getting the bus 3 for adults 2.50 kids (one way) which drops you right in the centre.

When ready to return you can walk along the towpath of the Kennet and Avon Canal. This enables you to see the Caen Hill Flight of 29 locks. The kids loved helping the boats navigate the locks by opening and closing the gates. There is also a vast amount of wildlife to be seen including, ducks, swans, moorhens, herons and fish. The walk back from Devizes is slightly easier as you walk downhill and my 4 year old managed it capably and enjoyed it.

I would definitely stay here again and despite it being 145 miles away would quite happily use this as a regular weekend getaway.
