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.

Good walk or cycle into Devizes along the towpath - the Caen flight of locks is entertaining.

This review is for Devizes

Good walk or cycle into Devizes along the towpath - the Caen flight of locks is entertaining. Two good pubs in walking distance, and would have cycled into Bath had the weather been kinder. Site felt spacious even over a bank holiday - will go again.

The three Magpies public house just up the road, friendly staff and great food. Sunday lunch was great! Great walks along the canal with easy access from just outside the site. Great for walkers, no need to drive off the site, just relax and enjoy.

This review is for Devizes

In a tent with no electrics and wasn't shoved in a corner as with some sites but a good flat grass pitch. The usual play area for the children and as always clean loos and efficient showers. A quiet site with an easy walk to the pub. I recommend the Three Magpies next door, good food and friendly. Site reception very helpfully lent us some cutlery as we'd forgotten spoons! Thanks. Devizes itself is worth a look round, park at the Wharf long stay carpark and walk through to the main market square. Museum is quirky and varied and had a good guide to the town. Don't miss the plaque on the Market cross. Wadsworth brewery a bit pricey for a tour but the information centre interesting. Walks along the canal from the site and a visit to Laycock Abbey gave us a refreshing short break.
