A lovely campsite located on a canal with a number of attractions nearby.

Our Devizes Club campsite is a lovely quiet and secluded retreat by the side of the Avon and Kennet Canal in the heart of Wiltshire. The surrounding countryside, ideal for walkers and cyclists, is where you’ll find some of the UK’s most significant prehistoric sites including the iconic Stonehenge and Avebury Stone circle.

This well-kept, tree-lined campsite provides 90 pitches, some lined by hedging to give a more private feel. In addition to the amenity blocks, campers can expect a children’s play area and playing field and a large dog field.

You can walk or cycle into Devizes from the campsite via the spectacular Caen Hill flight of 29 locks or catch a bus from the stop a five minute walk from site. Buses also operate to Melksham, Bath and Bristol from here.

This bustling historic town has weekly general and collectors' markets and a regular farmers' market. Wadworth's Brewery is here. See its famous shire horses make deliveries in town. Sample the ales at the visitor centre where tours of the brewery and stables can be booked. Also in the town is the Wiltshire Heritage Museum where you'll find Britain’s best Bronze Age archaeology collections. The Kennet and Avon Canal Trust Museum alongside the canal is where you’ll discover the fascinating story of this delightful waterway.

Further afield Longleat and its 900 acres of parkland is a great family day out.

My wife and I chose this site as we wanted a break within 50 miles of our home in Poole.

This review is for Devizes

My wife and I chose this site as we wanted a break within 50 miles of our home in Poole. Turned out to be a great choice. Stayed for 9 nights. Shower block usual CCC high standard and only had to queue for a few minutes a couple of times at busy weekend when site looked almost full. Site adjacent to K&A canal but no direct access to it due to screen of trees although you can glimpse and hear the boats and boaters through the trees. To access towpath just exit site and turn right for a minute or so. A really great pub (The Three Magpies) just a few mins walk away - turn left out of site. We ate there two Saturdays and were very pleased. Wadworths beer very tasty and all well kept. There is another pub (The Barge Inn) just over a mile down the towpath. We cycled there early one evening. Good beer again. Does food but we didn't eat there. Good bus service within 5 mins walk of site. One way towards Devizes, the other to Bath. We used it twice to visit Devizes. Did the Wadworths Brewery tour and would thoroughly recommend as not only do you get to sample the beer but you also get to meet the Shire horses that deliver it around the town. Walked from the campsite into Devizes (about 4 miles) which takes you past the famous Caen Hill flight of locks. Stopped for lunch at The Black Horse pub right next to the pub before walking into town to catch the bus back. There is a lot else to do and see in this area but we had visited most places before and were there for a relaxing break so didn't bother revisiting them.

We caught the bus into Bath and had a great time walking around the city, we took our two dogs, and they also had fun being admired by foreign visitors. There's plenty to do and see from this site.

Visited three magpies which is dog friendly and has a good beer garden. Walked along the canal and saw a variety of barges and their inhabitants. Lovely site with good facilities we would have stayed longer but they were fully booked. We will definitely go back.
