Good pub site with large flat camping field with electric. Mostly to grass but we were advised to pitch on one of the few hardstandings due to the ground being soft, which was fine.

Facilities are in a portacabin and were adequate and clean but might be stretched if the site was busy.

Nice walks to Kennet and Avon canal and bus between Devizes and Melksham stops nearby.

Very friendly pub with good food (small portions available). There is an outside seating area on grass with a small playground for children. The pub was surprisingly busy mid week in November and we booked a table for dinner as advised. A lot of the custom seemed to come from the C&CC site next door.

Handy site for exploring the Kennet and Avon canal and the many other delights Wiltshire has to offer. Lovely to be able to fall into a dog-friendly bar at the end of a long day walking, for a good meal. Not a huge choice for veggies on the menu though. Facilities disappointing. Shower very poor, especially when you've had to pay 1 for it! Poor water pressure and I couldn't see how to turn down the temperature once I'd taken off my specs! No hot water in the dish-washing area, nor could I see a light; not helpful when I want to do a pile of washing up late evening. Pitches nearly all grass, not very well drained and I had to get some friends to push my caravan off the flooded pitch after a night of rain, on the morning I left.

As a senior citizen it would be cheaper for me to stay on the C&CC site next door in mid or low season, and enjoy better facilities with the comfort of knowing there's a security barrier in place.

Enjoyed our short stay at the 3 Magpies but felt a few small things would have made it so much better. I bought a shower token for a 1 and when I used it, the shower only worked for about 20 secs, just as I had started to soap up. Now, I did move the temp from medium to high but didn't expect this as I was told it would last for about 6 Mins. There is no hot water at the washing up station, which I haven't experienced elsewhere. Bad if you have fried food utensils to wash. There doesn't seem to be a grey waste deposit and it is inconvenient to lift a heavy wastemaster into the black waste deposit. Finally, the men's toilet was without a toilet roll for nearly a day. They should always leave a spare as at many other sites. I feel it wouldn't take too much to rectify these smal problems and make for a great retreat.

Upon a late (8:30pm) arrival. First impression was good. It immediately got better, met with hostess of pub and immediately shown where to park. Complete with 240v hookups. A drink and an evening meal for two. Early exit from site after a shower 1extra. Dated but adequate shower/ toilet facilities. Picnic area would be fabulous in spring and summer times. A very short walk to the picturesque canal with great walks. Staying on an extra day absolutely a great place to be or find yourself. We will return. Thank you.

Wanted to see the Kennet and Avon canal and visit Devizes. 15 per night for our caravan, awning, electric hook up, 2 children and a dog. Good basic site, clean toilet/shower block (heated), 1 a shower. Nice pub, friendly staff and 2 minute walk to the canal. Some road noise but didn't bother us.

Half the price of camping and caravan site next door.

This was our second visit to the three Magpies we were last there 4 years ago. I was surprised to see the same shower/toilet block there. I thought at the time they were temporary and by now permanent structures would have been installed. These showers/toilets let the site down. One cubicle in the ladies and one in the gents were inadequate for the number of people on the site. And they also charge a 1 for a shower. Also I find it pretty poor that having used the toilet you do not have facilities for drying your hands other than using toilet paper, surely an electric hand dryer could be provided for hygiene purposes. The only other unsatisfactory issue was the fact that they will place tents and caravans next to each other, where electric hook up cannot be used because a tent is on that plot. Personally I think tents and caravans should be separated as it could also be a hazard, this could easily be achieved on this site as it has two separate fields. The positive side of the site is easy access off the main road, a very nice Country Pub serving meals with a good supply of real ale. Also the canal walks are within a stone throw away where you could walk to the The Barge country Pub where they also serve excellent food and have a lovely beer garden where you can watch the canal boats pass by. You could also walk in the other direction to Devizes.
