Lovely quiet site, well sheltered and adjacent to the canal for walks as long as you wish! We found the staff all to be friendly, got the impression they were very new so suspect the previous team have moved on as seems to be the way with C&CC sites. 5 min walk to the three magpies for a nice pub meal, you may need to book as it was very busy when we went on a weekday too. Be sure to follow the access instructions as the bridge over the canal looks like its on the verge of collapse to me and definitely not suitable for touring vehicles!

Decided to go to this campsite because of its location next to the Kennet and Avon canal first impressions were not too good because I first met a very angry and rude warden because I accidentally went under a barrier the wrong way. Ok I made a mistake, I didn't see the no entry sign low down on the left side of the barrier.

Anyway the other wardens were pleasant enough we were shown to our pitch and were placed next to the road despite there being lots of other free pitches in better locations. I thought to myself this isn't going well after paying £27 per night (we are not members of the ccc) to say we were not amused is putting it lightly.

We settled in and went off to walk up the canal towpath to find the Barge Inn - this is about a 30 minute walk, but the nearest pub to the campsite is the Three Magpies pub about five minutes walk - this does really good food.

In conclusion an overpriced campsite, location lovely would I go again NO just because of price and warden

This was our first visit in about 5 years and we had a nice friendly welcome, with just a bit of pressure to try and rejoin the C&CC to get a better price.

We were asked what type of pitch we would like and were shown to a nice spacious one with good afternoon sunshine. Soon after pitching up we had torrential rain but the site soon drained with just a few puddles remaining.

We cycled down the towpath to Bradford on Avon and like the local roads, time and lack of funding have taken their toll and the surface was very uneven with large cracks in the path where previous towpath reinforcing had taken place. The Kennet & Avon Trust café at Bradford Wharf offered lovely lunches which we enjoyed sat outside in the sun.

This time we did try the Three Magpies for a meal. Again a very friendly welcome and the food was fine, if not exactly outstanding, but at a fair price.

We booked for 3 nights and increased this to 5 as there is so much to do in the area and we liked the site. Being situated on the Kennet and Avon canal there is good cycling and walking in the area and we cycled to Bradford on Avon, a lovely typical local town. We also cycled in the other direction to Devizes but this was also a walk as you go up besides the flight of Caen locks, very interesting and with a well placed cafe at the top. The local bus service is also good so an excellent site if you have a motorhome. The site itself had everything we needed and was clean and well cared for with helpful staff. Looking forward to returning in the future.

This is a well established site with a formal layout. It was not cheap but had all of the facilities one could need. It is near the Kennet & Avon Canal which was what I wanted. All of the staff were helpful. There is a local Pub the landlord barked at me regarding booking for the restaurant, so I went elsewhere.

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.
