Spent a week at this site in a touring caravan. Paid deposit prior to arriving and was asked to pay remainder by cash or cheque when checking in.

Was shown to pitch by owner who waited with us until we had parked the van up, was told to park van as near to grass area as possible. Van was on hard standing with grass area for awning.

Pitch seemed small which didn't help due to neighbours either side, one side had visitors who had parked their car on the grass area on their pitch, on the other side of us the people in that van had put up wind breaks to cover their water barrels but must have been at least 3ft onto our awning space!1st impressions weren't good, we felt hemmed in.

We decided to wait until following day to see if the site would grow on us, see my review on the Old Oaks, Glastonbury, any site after that is a downer. Anyway hubby decided to put awning up a day later, our neighbours said if we needed them to move the windbreak just ask! by the time we got the awning up we had around 1ft spare between awning and their wind break. She even said herself the pitches are small.

The couple on other side, their visitors left same day, so at least we did not have the extra car to the other side of van.

Both sets of neighbours were friendly saying hello when you saw them.

As I said before, we felt the pitches were on the small side, you had your van on hard standing, your car went in front of van (just)& awnings on grass area.

There were 2 toilet blocks, one more modern than the other, I used the newer one which had 2 showers in, toilets & sinks, no washing up facilities is this one. At no time did I have to wait for a shower and they were hot, push button, you could not change heat setting but I felt the heat setting was just right. 20p for hair dryer (didn't need it) There is a small children's play area but no children on site while we were there.

The site is half a mile from road but no road noise, lovely and quiet. Also nr NT Lacock Village, other side of road.

We used the local bus's to get to Chippenham which was a hub for other bus's to places like Bath, Devizes etc. You can use your old age bus passes at any time of the day in Wiltshire which was great when we wanted an early start.

Would we stay again, yes I would but if you asked hubby he would say no. He said there was just something about the site which he could not put his finger on that he did not like, he likes a site to look tidy, he felt the grass needed cutting, at no time did we see the grass being cut, although some hedges were being trimmed later in the week, but this is his personal feelings.

The site was great for visiting the local area and could get to a lot of places on local transport.

We had a lovely day in Devizes, went on bus from Chippenham, market day was Thursday, then walked from town to canal, then along to Caen Hill locks, about a mile & a half along canal path, lovely setting.

We also went to Avebury by car, but I think the Swindon bus passes there, you would need to check on return times. Wish we had gone earlier as there was lots to see and do, ran out of time, well worth the visit.

We also went to Bath on the bus, visited Lacock Abbey and Bradford on Avon.

The showers were spotless, but the site loses some points due to pitch sizes.

Our second visit this year after our first visit in May! A very quite site and again not over crowded. Plenty of space to put the awnings up and to sit outside to enjoyed the sun. The water as hot as ever and the sit nice & clean. Did not have to wait to use any of the facilities. Will use again as in our opinion this site is just right. Will not suit those who want night life / social bar etc but that's why we enjoy it so much. Well done Piccadilly Caravan park

Top location. Only stayed for one night. I'd have liked longer, but the site was apparently fully booked. The Site was ideally located for some fine walks, was level, and had good bathroom facilities. I thought the site represented good value, and would undoubtedly be well located for trips out to surrounding countryside. Lacock, just up the road, is a bit picture box, but the shop sells an astonishing variety of real ales, so a good night was had by all!

Stayed on this site for 6 days. Wow what a little gem, even our friends who always find something to moan about loved it. Very quite and even over the bank holiday site did not feel full. The hot water is hot and plenty of it. Owner takes pride in his site and it shows. Loved it and now planning to return in near future, The local village of Lacock has its own wow factor if you like history. Quite site ideal for those of us looking for a relaxing break.

Wonderful spot with a very friendly owner. Extremely well kept grassy pitch, well defined and generous in size. Toilets, showers and washing up areas all clean and brightly lit. The site was full over the weekend we were there, but we never had to wait for the loo. The dog walking area was wonderful - large open fields where our excitable boxer couldn't get into any trouble. 5 minute walk into pretty Lacock and good pub.

We visited this park as we were attending a Christening in Lacock and I wanted somewhere that could provide me with a hairdryer without needing EHU!

It was an absolutely fantastic site - beautifully laid out with spacious pitches and neat, flat pitching areas.

The toilet and shower block was immaculately clean at all times and as the camping area was quiet, we felt we almost had it to ourselves. The washing up facilities were equally well maintained, with plenty of hot water always available in both.

The children loved the play area, which was near our tent, and also the large playing field for ball games. We are not dog owners, but dogs were welcome, with a special dog walking field available for them.

The owner was very friendly and welcoming, happy to provide recommendations for places to eat and visit locally, and the village of Lacock is an absolute gem - a picture-perfect English village, with some great little pubs to eat in. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and can't wait to return.
