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.

Very average

The location is excellent for easy access to many places of interest and some good pubs. After the glowing reviews we had read we were hoping for something rather special, considering the high price. It turns out to be a rather average site, in spite of the provision of a shower/ toilet. This could have been used to display useful local information as many CL owners do, and thus made us feel more welcome. You have to make an effort to see the views.

Great site, great people

Had a wonderful stay here, we arrived in the dark and I unfortunately got the caravan stuck in the mud. The owners were so helpful, they were more than happy to come and rescue us. The showers were top notch. Better shower than I have at home! Great views and a great location. The dogs loved it, plenty of walks near by.

nice peaceful site

We stayed at this CL for 2 nights in November....and enjoyed being the only unit on site !! There are a number of walks direct from the site with the owners allowing us to walk out of the site through private paddocks and onto the network of public footpaths. There is a very nice shower and wc room which was warm and clean .The Westbrook public house is dog friendly and only a 20 minute stroll from the site...the site has no hard standings but the ground seems well drained ...the site is sloping so levelling blocks are a must for most areas but that was not a problem for us. All in all we will return and have booked to do so ........

Peace & quiet

Leveling blocks are a must. Otherwise all facilities are very good especially the shower block, which is more than adequately heated! Waste disposal well organised. Will come again.

Brilliant

Don't really want to say to much, it may encourage to many visitors. The Site is one of the nicest we have stopped at, the pitch's themselves are in a quiet meadow. The toilet and shower facilities were more than adequate. The welcome was warm, and the area itself is wonderful. The lanes around the site are peaceful and full of wildlife.
