 I turned up on spec here as one of my all time favourite sites and they had building work going on, so as I was looking for an alternative site the warden came up and said I could stay on the newly laid hardstanding pitches, if I did not mind the noise, etc. I jumped at the chance and placed myself on the hardstanding, new for 2022, and there are about 8 of them. Each have electric hookup, but I did not need that.

There is lots of improvement works going on, which is great as this site can get soggy in bad weather.

The toilets, showers and washing up area was still open and there is also a laundry area here too. Waste areas, fresh water and chemical disposal point too. Showers and loos are clean and well maintained.

Lovely site set along the Kennet and Avon canal and made even better by the hippy vibe of the site and the canal boats too.

The pub was open so I enjoyed a few pints and chatted with the wonderful locals who made and my dog very welcome.

Good spot for all the local attractions, Stone Henge, Avebury, E & W Kennet and so much more. Devises is not too far away of you need bog shops etc.

I will return time and time again as I love this site and a bog thanks to the warden for putting me up despite the improvements being made around me.

They charge 12. 50 for the night for me and my dog.

 Spent two nights at this site, set in lovely well kept grounds with very friendly hosts at the pub that's along side the site,

Showers and washing up area clean, ,

Use of fire pits available, ,

The river that meanders through site is beautiful an clear, space to playoutdoor games, children's play area in pub garden, food from pub is delicious, and we had got drenched one day so hosts kindly helped dry some bits for us.

Pewsey is a pretty village close by with shops for food an essencials.

Many historical things in an around area to visit including Avesbury village, white horse on hill an much more.

 Lovely campsite, Skylar and her team are very helpful and always go above and beyond to help people. The site itself is in a beautiful setting near a canal.

The pub does great beers and food. This a very hippy campsite and everyone is friendly. They put on some good entertainment as well.

They were a bit overwhelmed by the volume of people on site the weekend I was there and this meant some of the facilities suffered and were not clean but I think this is a factor of a bigger than expected event.

 The Barge Inn campsite was easy enough to find and in a nice location, really nice next to the canal.

The lower field was up to full capacity and so we had to go into the top field. There are no facilities in the top field what's so ever and the gate way into the field is not tarmac'd. With all of the rain it had turned into a swamp of mud. Because I have issues with my balance, it was a real falling hazard, making it impossible to get to the facilities quickly if needed.

The shower cubicles that are available are also tiny, and the toilet facilities limited. The water taps in the top field had been covered up by cars that had parked in front of them and we didn't even realise they were there until we were leaving

The field had been cut and huge clumps of wet rotting grass had been left everywhere, these all got tramped into the tent making it wet and muddy.

It is a lovely location, but at 50.00 for two nights stay, I would have expected at least facilities close enough to use, especially at night.

 What an amazing time arrived as a group, was greeted by organised and friendly welcome on arrival.

Sadly the entertainment was cancelled but this was through no fault of the pub. This is a unique campsite with many benefits. Very relaxed and enjoyed the freedom to set up as we wished.

Enjoyed a walk along the canalside on the Saturday afternoon to the mill cafe and arts and crafts. All groups appeared to be enjoying themselves with couples, groups and families.

During Saturday late afternoon stopped off for swift beer in the beer garden very relaxed and chilled. Ate and drank in the pub in the evening and was waited on with great table service.

Thank you to all the team we will definitely be returning.

 A lively and fun site adjacent to the pub by the side of the Kennet and Avon Canal.

Not a place if you want a quiet nights sleep though.

There is a marquee with bands playing at weekends and music goes on well into the night.

Best appreciated with a group to enjoy the party spirit.

 Stopover at this site whilst walking in the area.

Never changes, it's still a marmite site, love it or hate it, and I love it. Hippy vibes, water gypsies, "alternative" lifestyles all welcome and very evident here.

Pub does good food and great beer. Lovely seating area alongside the canal.

Good walks along the canal path

Facilities are pretty basic, but functional.

Will return

Reviewer: Lizsha 1 review from this member

 I thought the campsite staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful and the facilities were really good such as the shower, toilets and a food hut.

It was a little noisy during the night but we were made aware that there were 2 groups of people having birthday celebrations so should have pitched in another area.

I thought it was really good value and a lovely spot in the country
