A pleasant, level site with an attractive 1950's themed cafe that was well-patronised by locals. Enjoyed a lovely full English breakfast cooked and served by friendly helpful staff.

Toilet block with showers was clean and attractive, usual CL services provided. Childrens garden toys provided outside of the cafe.

It was a shame that the pub at the end of the road was closed but Bradford-on-Avon and all its attractions were within a half hour walk. Steep downhill but there was a bus to get back up the hill.

Holt was also within reasonable walking distance down quiet lanes - an attractive village with two good pubs. NT nearby, Great Chalfield Manor and Court Gardens, Holt.

We stayed here for six days in late September 2015 and sadly (for us) it was nowhere near long enough. I really wish we could have stayed longer.

The campsite itself is immaculately kept and there was never a shortage of loo roll. The toilets and shower were kept clean at all times and 50p for an 8-minute shower is plenty enough time. The only minor gripes (and they are minor) are that the hand-driers could do with a bit more oomph. Also, because the loos were shared with cafe customers, not all customers abided by the signs to turn off the lights after using the loos. This site clearly prides itself on it's green credentials such as recycling bins and encouraging customers to use the facilities carefully.

The owners were laid-back and, after showing us what was where, left us to it. They had forewarned us there was going to be a hen party there at the same time, but the girls could not have been nicer, were sociable and even gave us some free Prosecco. Thanks, girls! :)

We ate at the cafe a couple of times, having paninis for lunch on the second day of our stay and breakfast on our day of departure. Both times the food and service were great.

There are some great walks (and views) from the doorstep. You can see Bratton Castle and White Horse from the site itself. Bradford on Avon is around half an hour's walk. From there you can take some pleasant strolls along the Avon and the Kennet and Avon Canal or take the train to Bath and Bristol. Bradford on Avon boasts some great pubs and interesting shops.

Shame this campsite is a 7-hour drive from where we live, but we WILL be back for more camping and food. Can't wait!

A pretty little site just outside Bradford On Avon. There are 4 pitches for caravans 3 are hard standing and one is grass.

There is also a large area for tents. The toilets (one ladies, one gents) and the shower were clean and there is a dish washing sink with hot water.

There is also a cafe on site which we tried on our last day, the food was very good and set us up for our journey.

There is no shop on site but there are plenty in Bradford on Avon and a selection of pubs and cafes. We walked into Bradford a couple of times and caught the train to Bath, however please check service availability as electrification works are causing disruption to services in the area.

Bradford and Bath are both beautiful and well worth a visit.

This site is very reasonably priced and was great value for money. However I think more showers and toilets are needed as queues developed sometimes and the cafe customers use the same toilets as the campers.

I booked this site via Ukcampsite and I really enjoyed my visit last weekend. The site is handy for Bradford on Avon and Bath, both of which we visited. There is plenty of room on the site and when I arrived I had a choice of 4 places where I could pitch up. It is generally quiet and there were no problems. I went in the café to pay for my pitch and everyone was really friendly. The facilities are okay, but basic, but everything was clean. Nice views from the site, but the date I visited the site, the pub down the road appears to be closed. I will visit this site again that's for sure. I didn't have a meal in the café, but it looked great and was really popular, especially for breakfast.

Stopped for one night to break up a drive to Wales.

I'd booked in advance and arrived after dark. Everything was easy to find and as described by the helpful person when I'd called.

In morning light it was nice to see the open countryside and views across the fields. As we were the only van staying, the facilities were fine and were clean.

We went to the on site café for a breakfast before leaving, and a great treat that was! Nice big fry up and pot of tea before heading out on the road was really good.

All-in-all a good site, that we'll return to explore the area rather than just pass through.

Lovely site, with stunning views over the countryside. Booked in at the cafe, nice friendly welcome, we were shown were everything was located. Didn`t use the cafe, but it looked very nice and clean. It seems very popular with lots of people coming to use it. The pitches back on to the road, so you get traffic noise in the day time but hardly any at night. One male, one female toilet and one shower(50p), we felt that the toilets were a little bit basic with only cold water in the hand wash basins, would be a big improvement to have hot water put in. Television reception poor, could really only get B. B. C. Programmes. It is a bit open and exposed, especially when the wind gets up, but the view compensates for this.
