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.

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

Sorry, this just isn't value at £20 pn - (June 2021)

The Old Vicarage
Having just travelled from another CL which, at the same price, offered manicured lawns, fully serviced, large and level hardstandings, a large toilet block in pristine condition and stunning views, this site paled in comparison. There was no meet and greet - took us two days to find someone to pay. Luckily another visitor was able to show us where the power point was located and where the drinking water supply was hidden in an overgrown hedge. There were no clear sites laid out on what was a steeply sloping field and the power supply appeared to have been bolted on to an existing setup in an adjacent field which is now occupied by chickens.I wondered if the entire site has been moved from its original location. The single toilet and shower (near the chickens) lacked power and light. The chemical disposal area was - well, a smelly overgrown hole in the ground with a lid best describes it. The approach is down a long single track lane and, should an arriving caravan meet one leaving, there is absolutely no way for them to pass down it's entire length. I don't really understand how, at this price, the site has received such good reviews before.

Paradise at The Old Vicarage !

The Old Vicarage
We have just arrived home after a 3 night stay here. As we arrived and parked up, the view from our Motorhome was stunning. No one parked in front of us, just fantastic views across fields and open land to the distant hills!! This truly is a bit of paradise.. the views, the wildlife in surrounding fields of deer, rabbits, bats and a stunning owl in flight!! Resident chickens chattter to you as you walk past their pen...sheep in the field at the bottom....and all you can hear is birdsong!!...see it really is paradise!! Easy to get to the local pub to dine out. Country lanes and trackways lead you deeper into nature from this site. The bathroom facilities were fine, perfect for what they are for. Easy access to water and all the rest. Well though out. Plenty of room between other pitches....not that they are marked out. If you want to get away from it all...this is your place of peace!! We would highly recommend this fabulous site. Fiona the owner was lovely and friendly. Thank you. Pat and Willow

A super site in the peaceful countryside

The Old Vicarage
We enjoyed three nights here. It is quiet and relaxed with a really genuine welcome from Fiona and Mathew, who made no fuss when our friends, dog and young girl turned up for a cuppa in the sunshine. The addition of the polite friendly resident dogs made it for me. The only thing I would say is that the toilet and shower, although handy, has seen better days and grass clippings remain on the grass, for you to walk in to your caravan (but I'm being fussy now). For those tiny reasons I think it is quite expensive for a CL site. Had a fantastic meal at the Westbrook Inn which is just 15 minute walk over the fields.
