Reviewer: Parrycat 1 review from this member

Just returned from a very wet week over the Easter bank holiday weekend, we clearly arrived at a bad time because George had recently passed away and the family were trying to carry on. So please take this into account when reading this review. The pitches werenít marked out, which meant that as more units arrived we were packed in. The reception isnít signposted and the flags were very slippery due to moss and could do with a clean with a pressure washer. The toilet block was clean though no toilet roll when we first arrived, showers were 50p for 5 mins but the coin machine was outside so if it ran out mid shampoo you would have been stuck so we used the shower in the van. We tried to use the washing machine but it takes old £1 coins so gave up. Over the weekend more units arrived I donít mind kids playing football but do object when the back of the caravan is behind the goals so they kept hitting the van with the ball. Another family had a couple of dogs with them and they were constantly barking. Due to the weather the pitches were very muddy and I think it will take quite a while for them to recover. We probably wonít return however the site is in a good location for trips out and I hope that things improve for the owners who are clearly having a bad time.

What a lovely sight spotless toilets and showers the pot wash was good and also had a Washing machine and tumble dryer at very good prices George and Jacki the owners were great lovely friendly people close to the village centre with pub that has lovely food shop in the garage and the main road that passes the sight didn't bother us at all the only thing I would say is the entrance is a little bit tight but then again we do have a very large Motorhome at 32ft long it went in but anything longer than 34ft would struggle I would like to say that I would like to keep this sight to myself for purely selfish reasons that it might get so busy that we wouldn't be able to get back in as often as we would like and to top it all it's reasonably priced as well

Lovely quiet little site. George was a lovely man. Made us feel very welcome. Clean and tidy. Will be coming back again this year. There is a busy road but to be honest it didn't bother us. Local garage within walking distance. Shops 4 miles away. Thanks George and Judith for having us

On arrival we were greeted by George who allowed us to choose our own pitch. Later Jacki called to ensure everything was ok.

The facilities are clearly marked and the toilets and showers were immaculate. On our second day we had friends arriving who had booked one of the apartments so we had the opportunity to see one of these also which was fully equipped for the needs of most people with modern appliances.

Over the week end there was a few campers who had adequate space for their tents on the nice flat well kept grassed area.

The Rose & Crown pub is only a few minutes walk along the the road and has a reasonable menu which should suit peoples taste.

We didn't inspect bus times there is a conveniently placed bus stop near the site

My wife and I have recently returned from 3 night's stay at Brades Acre. This is a lovely, well-kept site.

We were greeted by one of the owners from the balcony of the bungalow and as we were staying with a group of friends (half of whom had arrived) told we could pitch our tent pretty much anywhere in the area our group was staying. During our stay she would occasionally chat, making sure everything was fine in a friendly and unobtrusive way.

The tent/caravan field is mostly flat, very well kept and nobody will be far from the facilities. The only slight criticism is that the step between the field and the facilities block is very steep - perhaps it's not meant to be a step at all?

Washing up is done in one of two large sinks, with detergent and sponges provided. There's also a launderette style washing machine and dryer with reasonable charges should you wish to use these. Small but immaculate gents and ladies toilets with one shower each plus two unisex showers. The only issue here is that the coin boxes for operating them are outside the shower area, necessitating perhaps wrapping oneself in a towel to deposit a coin. But the temperature is controllable, water pressure is very good. You do get a full 7 minutes for your 50p.

Otherwise this is a quiet site without a shop or club house or anything like that. A perfect place to relax or have a nice time with friends. We asked if the Londis down the road sold ice, and were given a bag by the site owner which was truly lovely. It seemed very quiet at night except for the night with thunderstorms!

There is a pub about 7 minutes walk away, and a petrol station with Londis supermarekt another 7 minutes up the road. Or shopping can be done at Devizes which has several major supermarkets. The site would be great for visitors to Stonehenge and the surrounding area, and this does mean that if coming from the East you have to drive past Stonehenge. It's nice to see, but traffic is heavy there.

Definitely recommended for when you don't need/want a swimming pool, club house, noisy music etc. A very nice, well run, friendly site. It's worth mentioning that the site is dog friendly with a dog walk area. There are no specific kid's play areas but even with the site full there was plenty of grassy space for children to run about. Another attraction are the horses in the next field which would periodically come up to the fence and enjoy some petting.

We had a family gathering here with 2 tents and the two bedroom flat. Apart from the first night being a bit chilly in the tents we had a fabulous time. Great to have the portable fire pits! Very relaxed warm and friendly owners. All the facilities were lovely and clean and warm too. Kids had plenty of space to play. Would recommend.
