Great site. Wardens very helpful and accomodating. Pitches were level and most sheltered with avenue style hedges. Book early if you want grass pitch with electric, as they only have 5 ! All amenities were spotless, and site kept immaculately. Only 1 washing machine and it was always in use.

Fantastic play area behind the site, with loads of room for football and a little beetle drive walk which kept our son amused.

Lots to do in the area - Longleat a must ! You can buy the passport for 22 per adult and just do the safari 1 day and go back when you want to do the rest, great value ! The canal walk to Devizes (4miles) is stunning, in the right weather.

Great food at the Three Magpies, but did't think much to the Wadworths beer.

All in all, a fab holiday and we would definitely return.

A very well run site, always a smile from the staff, who are very helpful. The site has well spaced hard standing pitches for tourers and grass for tents, all well spaced so even when full it won't seem crowded. Hedges across site provide shelter from the wind.
The central shower block provides adequate washing/ laundry/ chem. Loo facilities, and is always perfectly clean and orderly, showers good and hot with heaps of pressure. There is no proper shop, but basic essentials are on sale in the office.
There is a playpark and a dog walking field. Young children will get on fine here, but not much for teenagers, (no TV or games room ) the only saving grace with our two was the site-wide wireless internet facility (20.00 per wk) but we were here during term time so not many youngsters about anyway.
One thing that did dissappoint us was the lack of recycling bins on the site, especially as the C&CC brochure lists the site as having a David Bellamy Gold award. Interestingly the Bellamy website 2008 list for Wiltshire does not include this site.
Hospitable pub (Three Magpies) just up the lane, large family friendly garden, good beer and pub grub. Also good is the Barge Inn at seend Cleave, about 1.5 mls west along the canal tow path. Towards Devizes (10 mins by car) is the Caen Hill flight of locks - there is a car park up near the top with a delightful little cafe (very clean and good value)where you can sit and watch some very weary people bringing their boats up through the last few locks! Devizes has plenty of shopping, and the brewery tour (Wadworth's) is a must.
This site is ideal for Bath, Stonehenge and Avebury, the famous White horses and many ancient sites. Touring the area you are never far from a nice cosy country pub for refreshment. Take your bikes otherwise it's a long walk to anywhere or you have to drive.

What a great site!

Had to wait til 12 to book in (strict rule on this site!), no problems though. Warden was great, really friendly and helpful even asked if we wanted help getting onto our pitch. Had the choice of pitches too. Busy site, even 'out of season'.

Central toilet block with 4 showers (ladies so I guess same in the gents?!) and plenty of loos and wash basin privacy rooms. Always SPOTLESSLY clean.

Wardens gave us info on walks to/from the site, which were great. Pub 2 mins from site (great cider but expensive - didn't eat there so dunno what the food was like!). Kennet & Avon Canal also 2 mins from the site. Nice walk (approx 3.5 miles) into Devizes via the Caen Hill Locks (29 locks in one long run up the hill towards Devizes). Fab tearooms at the top (great ploughmans for 5). Apparently (according to the wardens) there's a great pub in the other direction along the canal from the site (The Barge) but we only had one night there so didn't have time to check it out (next time we will though!).

Immaculate site that we would definitely visit again.

Arrived Friday 11th. Booked in at Reception and was then taken to our pitch. The warden helped us to push our unit on to its pitch (my husband hasn't mastered the art of reversing yet!) We were given all the relevant information regarding drinking/waste water, toilet blocks, chemical disposal, shop/reception opening times, site recycling etc.

The amenity block is central along with the play area. There are four showers in the Ladies which are powerful and hot, and there are a number of cubicled hand wash basins. There is a laundry room and a washing line for visitors use.

The site also has WiFi although we didn't use it.

Around the perimeter of the site are a number of hardstandings (where we stayed) and grass pitches with hookup.

There is a separate field in which you can play ball games - we took our kite along.

Just outside the site entrance on the main road is a pub called 'The Three Magpies', where we had our evening meal - staff very friendly and helpful.

The site is right next to the Kennet & Avon Canal, so on the Saturday we walked along the towpath all the way up the Caen Hill Locks - the view was fantastic. We even managed to help open some of the locks for the boats.

You have to depart by 12 noon which is later than a lot of commercial sites, so this enabled us to have breakfast and pack away neatly (the first time), rather than cramming everything in just to unpack and repack once you get home!

I would not hesitate to recommend this site - lovely and peaceful and it was great to sit and watch the families of little bunnies hopping around!

We used the site to try out our latest American M/H. Our entry into the site was greeted by the smiling staff who directed us to our pitch and took the time to advise us of local attractions. Site was very clean, even given the recent rain. All the hard stands were in good condition and even during the cold but sunny week we were there, most were full. The toilet block was spotless, and surprisingly warm for the time of year, with plenty of hot water and powerful showers. The Three Magpies pub, literally outside the gate was a big plus with excellent food choice. Make sure you make the trip to Avebury, very mystical!

This was our first visit to a C&CC site and we couldn't have been more impressed. Our welcome was very warm, the site facilities were spotless and although the site was nearly full, there seemed to be enough showers/loos etc for everyone. There was a nice looking playground and the site office stocked essentials. You could even order papers. This is a lovely spot by the canal with decent pubs within walking distance. Would recommend a visit to the Visitors Centre at Wadworth Brewery in Devizes. Really interesting and you can also visit the Shire Horses in their stables certain afternoons. They still deliver some beer locally on drays using the Shires. Fantastic! We will definitely be back. Had a great time.

Only gripe was nothing to do with the site. We thought the buses were a bit pricey (8 for 2 returns to Devizes 5 minutes up the road)although we don't travel much by bus usually so maybe it's a general thing! And the prices are going up next week! Don't let it put you off though!
