We have just returned from a 3 night break at this great site. We visited this site after having read previous reviews. Very friendly staff and excellent clean facilities. Stayed on a hard standing pitch which drained well, during wet and windy weather. Site was well designed and spacious. Good, interesting walking on the towpath of the Avon and Kennet canal. Worth seeing the Cain Hill locks, all 29 of them. Visited Bath by local bus service. Enjoyed seeing the Roman Spa and Regency architecture. The Three Magpies pub, next to site entrance, is friendly, serves good choice of wine, beer and meals. Will look forward to returning soon.

To Find Site:- The best route to the site is to exit the M4 at junction 17 and use the Chippenham bypass and when you get to Melksham take the A365 towards Devizes. At Sells Green turn right into Spout Lane immediately past the Three Magpies public house. The route from junction 15 on the M4 is fine but you have to go through towns like Marlborough and Devizes which makes it a bit slower.

This is a nice site on the banks of the Kennet and Avon Canal a few miles outside of Devizes. It has a mix of pitches, some on hardstandings and others on grass. The hardstandings are just wide enough for caravan and awning. Some are quite long which allows the car to be parked across the width of the pitch. There is a large central area for tents although if electrics are required in this area a longer lead might be required. Otherwise electric points are handy to the marked pitches and are rated at 16 amps and use standard CEE17 blue connectors. There is one central toilet block of a nice standard and all services are located here including a covered washing up area and the chemical disposal point. When the site is full it might struggle to cope at the busier times of day. There are three fresh water and waste water points on the site. Next to the toilet block is a nice adventure playground on a large lawned area. In addition to this play area there is a large field for more robust sports at the end of the site. There is also a large dog walk. Reception sells a range of essentials. Site wide WiFi is available and access cards can be purchased from Reception. Onside of the main barrier, in the car park, is a motorhome disposal point for grey water and taps for re-filling water tanks. This is free to campers but passing motorhomes can make use of these facilities on payment of a fee.

For canal enthusiasts this is an ideal site as access to the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath and is just a short walk from the site entrance. The towpath is suitable for walking and it is also part of the National Cycle Network. Not far from the site along the towpath at Seend is the Barge Inn which does some rather nice food which can be enjoyed overlooking the canal. For those without their own transport there is an hourly bus service on the main road in Sells Green. The X72 runs between Bath and Easterton and included on the route is Melksham and Devizes. The Three Magpies public house is a short walk from the site and also does food. All the local Towns have a choice of supermarkets.

Just enjoyed a 2 night stay at this lovely site. It was my 3rd visit in as many years. As stated in previous reviews, the wardens are the friendliest bunch you could wish for. I had a small tent and a motorcycle. I cannot fault any of the site facilities. Also it is a stones throw from 'The Three Magpies' a very friendly pub. A good location for an enjoyable day out on the bike. I went to the lovely village of Castle Combe. Also ideally situated for The Marlborough Downs.

I have just one small point, but I'm sure if I had thought to ask my request would have been granted (will remember next time). Once I had been shown to my pitch - I had to quickly erect my tent before the next shower. I then realised I was right at a entrance to the children's play area. It did get a bit noisy at times, not so much with children playing in the area, but constant running to and fro near the entrance. This aside, I will definitely make Devizes one of my regular stops, but will request a pitch in a more out of the way spot on the site.

Just returned home from another stay at this lovely site. The weather was extremely hot but the wardens were still about making sure everything was as it should be. The site was full when we were there but the toilet block was spotlessly clean and never once did I have to queue for a shower. This site is a credit to the wardens. Lets hope the standard doesn't drop when Pete and Dawn leave shortly. They will be a hard act to follow.

Definitely the best site visited this year and have already made reservation for the late summer. Very easy access. Staff and facilities second to none. All pitches are easily got on to with a nice space between each unit. Some lovely walks behind the huge dog walking area. Good bus service to Devizes just opposite site entrance. Brilliant shopping and markets in Devizes. On arrival I was taken to my allotted pitch and assisted parking up. Also as I am disabled given a spot near the disabled toilet and a key to get in. The only prob. for me was that the week I was there was the week when all hedges were trimmed and all grass cut, so for three days The wail of hedge trimmers and the chuntering of the lawn mowers filled my otherwise peaceful rest.

The wardens at this site are about the most helpful we have met. They went out of their way to sort out a request we had regarding our dogs even before we arrived. They continued the good work throughout our stay. The welcome was as friendly and helpful when we arrived.

The site is immaculate and beautifully maintained. All pitches with hook-up are fully hardstanding and so we needed extra pegs for our awning. It is very quiet, with no road or traffic noise - although the Blackbirds and Robins could be a bit noisy at dawn!

There are dog walks along the canal nearby, in a field near the entrance and at one end of the site.

The nearby pub serves good food and has a nice garden. The walks along the canal are very pleasant and there are many interesting places to visit by bike or car in the area.

The only minor downside for us was the toilet and shower block. It is spotlessly clean and well maintained but we felt it was just a little too small for the size of the site. There were 4 WCs and showers and 6 wash hand basins in the gents' and 4 showers with 6 WHBs and WCs in the ladies'. There was always some queueing in the mornings. This really is a minor point but one to consider in high season although the site was nearly full for our visit.

In short this is a very well maintained and well run site in a very good location. Would recommend it without hesitation.
