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.

Clean, well spaced, lovely walks, excellent position next to nice pub and within short driving distance of loads of sightseeing and places of interest. Toilets clean and well stocked. Hot water plentiful. Site clean and tidy. Centenary wood lovely. Loads of wildlife and rabbits.

Sadly there are negatives

Not enough showers - four for the whole site per gender with shower curtains that stick to your body when you are trying to get clean. Take some of the wash hand basins out and make the area into more showers as we never saw these areas full.

Very regimented site.

Bins the wrong side of the gate. No recycling.

Gate closed during the day which makes accessing in and out hard when alone.

Why put combination locks on the outer doors? Hard for a little person to deal with.

No shower in parent and child room - why? this is where we need it most!

Cleaning happens in main block that contains washing machine and dryer, showers and loos, at 10.30am, far too early - meaning everyone has to get up really early if there is a hope of grabbing a shower or getting a load in before it is closed until lunchtime. Suggest make this 1.30pm like other sites or put another block in.

Grade one on hardstanding. This makes walking in awning very hard and painful - I turned my ankle more than once.

Hedges need a trim. We were parked so close to the hedge (to get in spot required by steward) that it made accessing water, waste and loo a very wet and spidery job! Would have been easier if the hedge had a trim.

The Wardens were very polite and helpful. The toilet and shower block were kept very clean at all times and the water was always hot for showers. We had a hardstanding pitch which was a very good size. Plenty of room for van, awning and wind break.

The facilities for children (ours are now grown up) is very good and the dog walk is great. We loved walking in the Century Wood and listening to all the different type of birds singing.

The Kennatt and Avon canal is also a lovely place for walking. We visited Salisbury which is a lovely city and we recommend a visit to Bradford on Avon. Park in the station car park and walk out at the end of the car park (not the town end) and you will be on the banks of the river Avon. Take a left once you have reached the river to the old Tythe Barn. It`s a beautiful area.

We will be returning to this site next year and we are already looking forward to it.

Arrived Fri of bank holiday in glorious sunshine to the most friendly staff we have come across at C & CC sites. Site very clean and site for tent was very spacious. We had hook up and friends of ours who did not have electric were put opposite us.

Lovely area to walk especially along the tow path of the Kennet and Avon. But beware inconsiderate speeding cyclists!

Visited Avebury, Devizes and Silbury. Had a nice meal in the 3 Magpies next door, but spent most evenings chilling on site with a BBQ and wine!

Nice play area for the children and a large field for them to play ball games.

Only disadvantage. Our tent was very near to the toilet block and outside lights were very bright all night. Site full as half term so had to queue for a shower but we chose to go in half term!

Will definitely go back.

A lovely location with the benefit of being very near the Kennet and avon canal. The site was well laid out with the toilet and shower block in the middle of the site.

The toilets and showers were keep spotless and always had plenty of soap and toilet paper. The conversation walk and play areas were not signposted meaning you had to ask or try and discover them yourselves. The shop did not have much selection, mainly milk, eggs and raincoats !

The staff were disappointing after showing us to our pitch left before telling us about the location of drinking water and waste water points or hook up points. Other campers soon pointed us in the right direction. Seemed to have different rules for campers concerning pitching awnings on the grass depending I guess if your face fitted.

Over all not a bad site but I will not be returning.

We have a brilliant weekend on this site with my sister. We were on hardstanding and my sister on the grass next to us. Plenty of space between pitches and love the privacy hedges. Electric hook up and lovely clean facilities. Walked along the canal to Devizes, via Caan Hill Flight, not that long a walk and fairly easy going.

We found the site Managers friendly and site kept very well, would recommend and will definitely go back. We had two 12 year old boys with us who found the park and playing field good fun. Nice dog walking area.

Lovely to be close to the canal.
