When we booked the holiday a full service pitch was not available. After we booked we were offered a free upgrade if one became available, which was a nice offer but alas the site was pretty full Easter Weekend despite the bad weather.

On arrival the site is secured by a barrier. There was a very nice welcome which included a welcome pack with lots of detail about the site and surrounding area.

Although there was a lot of rain we were on a hard standing pitch and although the grassy areas got a bit soggy the hard areas were pretty well drained.

The facilities were very good always clean and there were a few nice extras, free aftershave and chocolates Easter Sunday. However one of my pet hates was the push button showers especially on an adult only site.

The site dog walk was ok and would have used it more had the weather been better.

We had a power out one night due to the weather the wardens came straight out and got everything working in no time at all. Reading other forums seemed the weather was causing power outs on sites all over the country.

My son visited for a few days and I though the £5 per night for the extra car was a bit steep.

Saw some comments about noise from the road but really did not notice it, if you listen for it you will hear it but really not a problem and we were on part of the site nearest the road.

Overall I was really impressed with the site.

One more thing if you are thinking of a visit to the Plough Inn for a meal don't do it, limited menu and not very well executed, below average and not cheap.

Drive a little further to the Jolly Huntsman lovely pub and well worth a visit, good specials board and very welcoming.

Excellent overall.

We stopped for a few nights on way to Cornwall, and can fully recommend. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. Top class.

The facilities for those of us who need to use them were perfect, being clean, available and with lots of extras. The information regarding walks, busses etc. Available is as good as I have ever experienced.

We enjoyed Malmesbury, Laycock Abbey and Devizes.

Beware crossing the road to the pub!

Good company in pub, but food was not great, and not many eating. A quiet evening perhaps.

We managed to choose a very hot few days and Plough Lane was pretty well full (a change from our last visit) despite that it didn't feel crowded. Facilities are as great as ever, very clean and with nice little touches - shower gel, shampoo, hand cream, magazines and sweets provided and even though some people think there aren't enough showers for a full site, we never had to queue.

The information pack is still very welcome, more stuff being added as they go along, the welcome is friendly and the owners are always ready for a chat.

We note that some people have had TV reception problems - we got over 100 channels including radio - maybe we just have a better aerial!

Very handy for the road network, supermarkets etc. And lots to see and do in the area.

Just come back from another brilliant holiday. The site was up to its usual standard. Helen, Roger and staff were welcoming. The pitches are kept to a high standard. The grass that is at the side is regularly cut. The whole site is kept pristine no litter anywhere. As for previous reviews I suggest they pick a campsite on the moon, what do they expect, the site is in the country so there will be animal noises in the morning. Because the site is easily accessible from the motorway there is going to road noise, but not that bad, we were pitched nearer to the road than pitch 18 and it didn't bother us. As for the dog noise go to a camp that doesn't allow dogs or sell your van and stay at home. There is a brilliant pub near Castle Coombe for meals and is quite reasonable on its prices. Also if you are going to Avebury and you have a blue badge you can park in the village car park for free and it is closer to the stones. From the camp there is loads to see and do, in the reception there is files that give you information on everything you may need. I can't praise this site enough we have been coming here for approximately 10 years and plan to come back again

Tranquil! certainly not on the pitch that was allocated to us. We were allocated pitch number 18. This pitch backs on to the dog walking area and we were often plagued by the sound of yapping dogs. As we are not dog owners we found the noise intrusive and irritating. We were asked on booking if we had a dog and as our answer was no we feel that it was inconsiderate to allocate us this particular pitch. They say on their website that they are members of the 'Tranquil Park' association and that is the main reason that we booked. The road noise from the A350 is constant and very disturbing especially when sitting outside. The site's quiet time is 10pm until 8am but our neighbours on the next pitch played loud music and were laughing and shouting in their awning until after 11pm. There is no point in advertising a quiet policy if it is not policed. This pitch (18) also has large trees overhanging trees so, if it rains, you then have large droplets of water bouncing on your roof thus adding to the noise. The TV reception both terrestrial and satellite do not work on this pitch although we were assured that we could get satellite reception. We were offered a lead at a cost of £1 per day to get our TV working but we felt that the fee of £24 per night was expensive enough without added costs. The pitches are small so if you have an awning erected then you must park your vehicle across the front of your van, very near to the thoroughfare and passing traffic. The toilets are kept clean and warm with sufficient hot water. The site is neat and tidy but we will not be returning. 1942. Uniblue

What fantastic weather! We booked for a 3 day stay in late May. The young man on reception welcomed us warmly and gave directions to our pitch. The first thing I noticed was that there were no provisions on site. If you’re arriving early evening, and don’t want to drive any further, make sure you have some tucker on board for your first meal. There is a Morrisons store about a mile up the road which is also handy for fuel.

Our hardstanding pitch was large enough for us and level. Their tour de force is undoubtedly the way they’ve designed and maintain the toilet block. Cleaned regularly they supply soap/shampoo in the showers, soap in the washing cubicles and for the blokes, after shave.

There is road noise on site. For us it wasn't a big deal but it's a personal thing. Now, the dawn chorus around 5. 30am - that's a different story!

We had a Sunday roast at the Plough just across the dual carriageway. Decent food, generous portions washed down with a pint of bitter. Nice.

We walked into Chippenham – not recommended – as there is a regular bus service from just outside the entrance.

If your decision to book a site depends on the state of the toilet block – believe me this is the one for you.
