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.

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.
