 A lovely quiet site, easy to find, with a great pub - my Wadworths beer, and my wife's wine, were ecxellent, as was the very good value, home-cooked food. I had the gammon steak, my wife the nut roast; both were served in generous portions, and the wait for our food was no longer than needed for it to be cooked fresh.

The campsite was a bit soggy in places (no hard standings), and we had to be towed off - may be something to think about if your visit is planned after some wet weather.

The washing facilities and loos coped with the six units on site during our visit, but could get pushed if it was much busier.

The facilities were clean, but could do with some updating - neither heater worked in the loo and shower parts of the building, and the shower temperature was only just warm enough when turned up to maximum.

 Lovely location easily accessible by train and bus.

Well maintained but was really disappointing that pub was only doing outside service especially as weather wasn't great, was looking forward to sitting inside when rain was coming down.

 The first thing I would like to say is thank you for being open despite all the extra work that you are having to do because of Covid.

This campsite is a small well run pub campsite with a rural location, the pub itself is thatched and the buildings within view of the campsite also thatched.

The facilities are what you would expect, separate WC's, shower room and dishi washing area and they are kept clean. The campsite is very busy weekends with the weekdays being quieter and therefore it is obvious to point out that that facilities are 'pushed' at the weekends so if you feel that may spoil your stay opt for early late season or midweek stays.

All people we spoke to who ate in the pub commented on the quality of the food and thought it value for money. We had not booked to eat in pub (covid restriction) therefore did not partake, however we could have eaten in the beautiful garden or outdoor covered area.

There are some beautiful walks through the countryside which inevitably cross the canal and lead you back to the pub, our dog Hugo loved it. Behind the main camping field is an equally sized space where we were able to play ball with Hugo and his new girl friend the pub dog, obviously making sure that we picked up any 'droppings'

The other field is also for camping but by arrangement only, we saw two horse drawn gypsy caravans, cycling club, The Piston Broke motorcycle club of Norfolk, 25 ish young ones doing their D of E and 3 guys 1 Army 1 Navy 1 Air force demonstrating why they are the best by sleeping in the pouring rain with no tent. In short there never seems to be a dull moment at this site.

Would we go again? Absolutely 100%. The main problem is getting a pitch with electric for a weekend.

Why would we go again? The dog absolutely loved it. Picturesque. Well run site. Close to home. Good walks (more to be explored). Pewsey has some good little offerings. Looking forward to the pub when things normal. Lastly 6x was like drinking the water of the gods.

 Food is good, service a little slow and chaotic. Pizzza oven is great.

Nice campsite BUT only one ladies loo and one gents is not enough. We stayed on a busy weekend. Pub goers and campers all sharing one old toilet which was not cleaned during our stay.

Would be a lovely spot if there were more and updated toilets and washing facilities.

 Very busy site. EHU was good and good large pitch.

Unfortunately only 1 male and female toilet and only 1 shower for the whole site. With lots of tents it was queuing at social distancing.

 A marvelous campsite. A friend & I had completed the Ridgeway by bike and made the mistake of staying at a much inferior campsite up the road, and after that canal side disaster this place was a halcyon of bliss. I wish we had moved here on the 1st night and saved us the pain at the other place.

Dave the landlord was very friendly, and ensured we were well fed and watered, and the locals kept us amused by their stories of unusual visitors to the area attracted by the prehistoric and supernatural landmarks.

The camping field was properly maintained, the grass nice and short, the hook ups were easily accessed by those that needed them. The neighbouring fields had a few horses and the garden of the pub had chickens clucking around.

There is only one showers, but it was very clean with good pressure & you could have a good wash.

The pub food was excellent, and the 6x was beautifully kept.

This will be a go-to campsite for exploring the local area in the future.

 A revisit after a couple of years and the prices are still £12 for the campervan with one adult and one dog. Left to ourselves.

Nothing has changed a lot since the last visit, there are electric hookups down one side and non electric pitches on the other side. The rest of the site is just one big field with loads of space for kids to play, dogs to run, etc.

The facilities consist of a toilet and urinal for men, and a couple of toilets for the ladies. There is a washing up area and a shower, which was free and perfectly adequate. There is also fresh water on the field.

The chickens and cockerels are still by the camping field.

The pub itself was very nice and sold a great selection of drinks, including local ales We did not eat there but the food looked lovely.

Plenty in the area with miles of walks straight from the site. It is also ideally located for seeing all that Wiltshire has to offer including Silbury Hill, Avebury, Stone Henge, Marlborough, etc.

The pub dog is still there and wanders around, so be careful not to leave any food out or bins, as he is happy to help himself to your stuff.

 I've used this campsite for the past few years and always found it excellent! It's certainly busier in the summer but the facilities are always clean and tidy. The shower could do with being replaced (not exactly powerful!) but other than that it's a lovely quiet campsite in a beautiful area. When the wind blows it can be a bit chilly but the pub is always warm with FANTASTIC food, a great selection of beer and a very friendly atmosphere.

 We last visited this site two years ago with a group of friends and have been wanting to come back for a while. I booked in advance as I thought that the site might get busy and we had arranged to meet friends, I probably wouldnít have needed to bother as the site was full only for pitches with electric hook up but we didnít need it.

The camping field is a large grass paddock which has been split up the middle by the addition of some pitches with electric hook up, the grass was pretty long and could have done with a cut but as the weather stayed dry for the weekend we didnít need to worry too much about wet paws. The toilet/shower facilities havenít been updated since we last stayed and whilst perfectly functional could do with a lick of paint.

I canít fault the site though for the price we paid; it is conveniently located halfway between us and friends, the pub serves a good pint and hot meals, the village is very pretty and the area is really quiet at night, it was nice to be on a site with no bright lighting that would spoil the view of the night sky.

Walking is easy along the canal and we managed a nice circular walk along the canal and up to the ĎGiants Graveí and back.
