Alan Rogers Review

Devizes Camping & Caravanning Club site is a lovely peaceful and secluded retreat in the heart of Wiltshire. It is adjacent to the Kennet and Avon Canal (opened in 1810) and the towpath now provides a traffic-free route passing the Caen Hill flight of 29 locks into Devizes (4 miles) so ideal for walkers and cyclists. In the other direction the towpath runs towards Melksham (also 4 miles). Centrally located for visiting many places of interest such as Stonehenge and Avebury. The site occupies a level field with gravel roads and centrally located facilities. There are a total of 115 pitches, 82 hardstanding and 33 grass pitches, 105 with 16A electricity, 1 fully serviced pitch. There are also 3 ready camp tents to rent.

A more unusual outing is to Sandridge Farm, renowned for its speciality bacons, hams and sausages. The farm shop is open daily, May to September and visitors can see the pigs and piglets (admission free – wellies advisable). The Vale of Pewsey cycle route can be accessed from the canal towpath to the east of Devizes, and is a distance of 41 miles between Great Bedwyn and Corsham.
