This is a very well laid out and maintained site with plenty of hedges and trees. The site is ideally located to explore the surrounding area; there are tourist information leaflets at the reception which also has a small shop. Best of all, the site is right on the Kennet & Avon canal for cycling and walking.

The toilet/shower block was always kept clean and tidy however there is only one and it is not large so it will struggle at peak times so for those that use these facilities there will be some queuing to be done at peak times. During other times they are adequate. There is also a family room and laundry.

There is a play area for children and a large area at the back of the site for ball games etc. Also at the back of the site is a dog walk area for those with our four legged friends. Dogs must be on a lead on the site which as non-dog owners we think is important and not once did we see a dog off the lead around the site, something you do not always see at a lot of sites despite it being a requirement.

The Three Magpies pub is a couple of minutes’ walk from the site (you will see it when you arrive). We had a meal here and found it reasonable and the food good. There is also a very nice Tea Room on the canal at Semington and another at Caen Locks.

The wardens were very helpful and knowledgeable. Also a one-way system operates around the site which makes life easier.

The only down side is that Mobile reception is not very good so you will need to pay for the internet if are into social media.

Overall an excellent site and we will be returning soon.

My partner & I have recently returned from this lovely site. The facilities are all kept in very clean condition, it was great to have personal cleaning cubicles. The weather was pretty atrocious during the whole week & to have the laundry was a bonus. I was a little disappointed with the size of the dog walk & the fact that dogs had to be kept on a lead, but being so close to the canal was a great help. I would have liked a little more lighting on the pathways at night. The wardens were very friendly & helpful. We had a couple of meals at The Three Magpies & were not disappointed (apart from my fella not taking to the local Wadworth ale). Despite the awful weather (mostly at night) we were able to go walking each day & in an area with so much history there is plenty of choice. We definitely will return to Wiltshire as there are lots of places we have yet to visit & can highly recommend this site.

My wife and and myself plus puppy Teddy, have just returned from our first ever touring caravan trip. We wanted to try it out while it was still under warranty and we weren't disappointed. We chose Devizes Camping and Caravan site because we were traveling from Essex and my wife's sister was travelling up from Torquay. We arrived during the tail end of tropical storm Abigail which was closely followed by the tropical storm Barney. We had high winds and rain that came at us sideways but. We were as snug as a bug, as they say. On arrival, the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We were shown to our pitch ( which they had put us next to our family) and advised us to the best way to set up our pitch.

Despite the weather, we had a fantastic week there and we believe that the term ' the friendly club' was so called because of the staff at Devizes. The THREE MAGPIES pub, a 3 minute walk from the club office, was exceptional with fantastic food and ales etc. So much to see in the area within an hours drive from the site. The towns of Devizes, Calne, Melksham. Trowbridge, Westbury, Wootton Bassett, Bath and the Henge at Avebury. We liked it so much that we booked for next year before we left.

A huge ' Thank You' to all the staff at Devizes Camping and Caravan Club for helping to make our first caravan trip such a delight. We look forward to our return.

Lovely campsite. Very clean and friendly. We went in the week so not too crowded and the showers etc are spotless. Dog really enjoyed the bit of forest at the back of the mowed dog walk. It's a shame the dog walk is lead only, but I can understand why, as some dogs are just not socialised properly with other dogs and can't be trusted. The Pub The Three Magpies is lovely. Food very nice. Not that cheap but well worth the money. Dog friendly too. Canal walks are great for looking at the long boats and Devizes is a lovely town with many old buildings etc. We walked there and got the bus back as bus stop very near the site.

Would definitely return. Only one thing marred a near perfect few days and that was a couple of small dachshunds in the camper van opposite us that yapped every time anyone walked near them but at least it was quiet at night. A truly lovely, well looked after site. Can't rate child friendliness as no children on site when we were there. Also as we are not yet members of the C & C Club, the site fees were expensive. We have since joined.

A fantastic site with above standard facilities including an extremely clean toilet block, well maintained pitches and a Motorhome Service point at the site entrance. Friendly and helpful staff welcome you to the site and ensure you are comfortably settled on your pitch. Local facilities are good with the bus stop near by that will transport you to Devizes in one direction and Melksham and Bath (amongst others) in the other. For the fit and healthy the nearby canal offers walks as far as Bath, via The Barge Inn, in one direction and along the tow path and lock gates to Devizes in the other. For the not so fit the local pub, The Three Magpies, lies yards from the site entrance and serves a selection of local real ales as well as providing a good lunch time and evening menu. Highly recommended this site is on our favourites list.

We found this site to be very spacious, we were greeted and shown to our pitch by a friendly & efficient team. The pitch was level with plenty of hedging and lovely trees between each action with facilities close by.

The shower block although old fashioned was clean & the showers were nice and warm.

The site is very close to the Kennet & Avon canal providing miles of walking opportunities. We enjoyed a nice lunch at the 3 Magpies pub just yards from the site.

We enjoyed our stay & will return.
