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 100 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.

This site has a number of great cycle routes nearby. Why not join the Avon Tow Path towards Bradford on Avon, 12 miles away?  Alternatively hire a bike in Bradford on Avon to cycle into Bath to enjoy the spa town and all it has to offer.

Lovely site.

This review is for Devizes

Lovely site. Unfortunately we had a very wet week and the new hardstandings are not wide enough or long enough to accommodate the car, caravan & awning. Therefore we were unable to put up the awning as the grass was too wet for the car. With vans and cars getting bigger , longer and wider hardstandings are needed!

Pitches are spacious, staff are friendly.

This review is for Devizes

Pitches are spacious, staff are friendly. Easy to get to and a perfect little get away for the family. On a bus route into Bath so can catch the bus in to have a great walk around and a bit of a drinking session without having to worry about driving. Great fun.

We stayed at this site for 2 nights on 9th & 10th February.

This review is for Devizes

We stayed at this site for 2 nights on 9th & 10th February. Haven't stayed on a C&CC site for a long while but at this time of year there is limited choice for any club sites in either group. Chose this one as it's not too far away from home. Lovely welcome from the friendly wardens. One of them took us to our pitch after asking if we had any preference for area. I explained we had our cat with us who I like to take for a little walk on his harness and would appreciate a quiet pitch so we were taken to one where no-one would park on one side of us. Ideal. Shower room clean but there's only 4 showers so I reckon it could get quite busy in the summer months, with 90 pitches on site. Shower was the normal push button stay-on-a-minute type, but very powerful. So powerful it made the shower curtain waft towards you and stick which was a pain. 4G was a bit hit-and-miss if you need wifi coverage. Three Magpies pub 100 yards down the road, quiet with not a lot of atmosphere. Bus stop across the road to catch hourly bus into Devizes - for 2 of us it cost £10 return. We were going to walk along the canal into Devizes on the Saturday morning but the weather forecast wasn't very good so we got the bus. Went in to the Pelican Pub for a spot of lunch, what a place!. Great unique atmosphere with mainly oldies watching horse racing and constantly nipping next door to the bookies and singing along to whatever was on the jukebox. Wonderful. Had a wander along the canal, saw a boat going through the locks. All in all, we liked this site, so much more to it and the area and I think we'll definitely be back, possibly when it's warmer and drier though.
