Why stay here ...

Our CL is located in a beautiful rural location within striking distance of many fantastic places to explore including the Georgian City of Bath, the picturesque National Trust village of Lacock and Bowood House, with its Championship Golf Course, Spa and children's adventure playground.

Lacock

Lacock is a short drive away and is famous for numerous television shoots including Sense and Sensibility, Harry Potter and Larkrise to Candleford. There are several very good pubs including the Red Lion and The George, Lacock Abbey. It is posible to walk or cycle there.

Bowood Country House

Bowood is a beautiful house and gardens designed by Capability Brown and is a five minute drive away.  In May the rhododendrons are in full bloom and well worth a visit. There is also an excellent adventure play ground for children aged up to 12 and Championship Golf Course. Bowood is a Grade I listed Georgian Country House with interiors by Robert Adam and a garden design by Lancelot "Capabiity" Brown.  It is adjacent to the village of Derry Hill, halfway between Calne and Chippenham in Wiltshire.

Bath

The world famous Georgian City of Bath is approximately 15 miles west of here and definitely worth a visit.  Here you will find Roman Baths, wonderful shops nestled in antique alleyways.

Devizes

Devizes is a 10 minute drive away and here you will find the famous Caen Hill Flight of Canal Locks one of the largest flights of over 30.

New Year Stay

The Old Vicarage
Very relaxing stay at this C.L. In a beautiful spot, with lovely woodland walks on the doorstep. Friendly and welcoming hosts, private shower / toilet block and easy access to EHU and water. Bath is 17 miles away and Bradford on Avon a must visit, only 11 miles away. The field is on a slight slope but drains extremely well. Despite a lot of rain, no problems getting on and off. Highly recommended.

Fantastic site all round

The Old Vicarage
We stayed here for the new year with friends and had a fantastic time! The site is really easy to access and it's location is brilliant for some lovely places to visit, including Bath. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, communication was great. The site itself is really lovely, there is quite a slope in some areas so make sure you have blocks or ramps. The views are beautiful in all directions, it was lovely waking up to chickens nearby - don't worry, they are not at all noisy!! The shower block is very modern - with a power and rain shower option - and very clean. Water/electric/waste all convenient! Highly recommended in every aspect!

Lovely CL

The Old Vicarage
Stayed at this site at the end of July 2021 and have to give it a thumbs up. The location has lovely scenery and a vey nice site itself. Facilities are very good and everything you need. Understand that the single track road leading up to the site for the last 200 yards are a bit of a concern for people and the passing spaces are a bit overgrown, but I would not let that put you off. The site is well located for Devizes, Chippenham and not far from Bath so useful for sightseeing. The host and their family are very welcoming and helpful. The £20 night fee may seem expensive for a CL, but I would say the stay was well worth it.

Quiet, peaceful site in beautiful countryside

The Old Vicarage
We spent a couple of nights here when the weather was very warm so it was nice to have shade from the trees in the evening.. The shower and toilet were really clean, with lots of hot water. Electric Hook up points ad water not too distant. The owner Mrs F Dodson made us very welcome, we had a mechanical problem with our camper van and she was most helpful. We enjoyed walks in the local area and feeding the pigs our waste food was an extra bonus. I would recommend the site for its peace and quiet.

Peaceful Escape.

The Old Vicarage
A beautiful tranquil site, with lots of space and views across to the hills. Good toilet/ shower facilites, with a modern roomy shower. We have a motorhome so like to use the bus and the no 33 into Devizes was quick and on time in both directions. In the evening we sat and ate our meal watching red kites circle and a great spotted woodpecker in the pine tree next to our van. Thanks Fiona for a lovely stay, we'll be back. I and J from Brighton
