Why stay here ...

For members who want to explore Wiltshire, Horse Lane Farm is an ideal CL as it is within easy reach of Bath, Bradford-on-Avon, Marlborough, Avebury, Castle Combe, Stonehenge, Longleat and Shearwater. We have a flat, lawned  area with electrical hookups and plenty of room for awnings. 

Horse Lane Farm is about one mile from the Kennet and Avon Canal: this has towpaths which lead to Bradford-on-Avon and Bath to the west or the famous Caen Hill locks to the east – this direction leads to Devizes, our local town. At Easter the famous Devizes to Westminster canoe race starts here.

Horse Lane Farm is situated on the outskirts of Rowde village which boasts two pubs, one shop and an ice-cream parlour. There are also other excellent local pubs where members may eat.

There are plenty of footpaths to walk along, taking members up to the Roundway Hills for instance or along to the canal. There is also a bus service to Devizes or Chippenham.

We are close to Lacock and its famous Abbey where parts of the Harry Potter films were made. Bowood offers a superb day out, especially for the children, and is within easy reach. There are golf courses at Bowood, Devizes and Chippenham.

Many of our caravanners love to go to the Thursday market in our local town of Devizes where most of the leading supermarkets may also be found. (We highly recommend Lee's Fish and Chip shop as well!) Devizes is also a very interesting place to walk around with its historic areas and excellent museum. There are tours around Wadworth brewery where members can sample the beers and meet the heavy horses that pull the drays around the town.

So, whether members wish to visit places or people, go walking or merely relax on site just leaning over a gate watching the cows (remember we are a working farm), then we look forward to offering you a warm welcome at Horse Lane Farm.

Pleasant and convenient CL

Horse Lane Farm
We visited Horse Lane Farm the first week in October 2021. A very easy trip for us from North Kent and easy to find. Good directions. Grass was kept trimmed and cuttings all collected. Only 10 amp but kept on 1 kilowatt generally. We heard occasional moos from our cattle neighbours and enjoyed hearing the owls in the evenings too. Very dark nights here so lots of stars to see on the clear Autumn nights. We walked from site to Caen Hill Locks, approx 1.5 miles. A beautiful place and great cafe at the top of the locks. Very reasonable prices. Excellent ice cream😊. We found a newly planted woods to walk back through. We visited Devizes Market. Lots of very cheap but quality veg etc. Interesting buildings and excellent fish and chips at the Lemon Plaice which we ate at the park opposite. We walked at some of the White Horses to be found in Wiltshire. Cherhill is a good walk. Quite steep going up but found an easier way down. We also visited Lacock, Stourhead etc. All in all a very enjoyable time and after many years of passing through Wiltshire to other parts of the country we were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the countryside here and will definitely return to explore more of this beautiful county.

Very Nice CL

Horse Lane Farm
This is a lovely well maintained CL, just outside of Rowde. You need to be careful when you arrive as the signage is becoming a little obscured. We missed it first time - but perhaps that says more about us!!! Really nicely laid out, and lawned area with plenty of room for 5 units. The owner is charming and helpful. It is just off a fairly busy road, but there is little traffic noise. Great for Caen locks and Kennet and Avon canal

Great location

Horse Lane Farm
We spent a lovely few days at Horse Lane Farm over the August bank holiday and enjoyed our time there. Chris and his wife are very helpful and friendly and the field is well kept and has easy access. We used our bikes to visit the canal and the ridgeway. We also enjoyed a visit to the George and Dragon. We have no hesitation in recommending Horse Lane Farm, so well placed for access to many interesting places. Would certainly visit again.

Nice little CL site, but need to drive to get anywhere

Horse Lane Farm
A nice little CL site just outside of Devizes. Smallish field, with five pitches, no rules about which way you pitch which is nice. Lovely welcome from the owners on arrival and shown to pitch. Not much else there, and you have to drive to get anywhere as the main road is fairly busy, and also can be noisy, especially when the boy racers decide to do 70mph past the site. It is a working farm, so expect some noise early morning, didn't bother us in the slightest. EHU is only rated at 10amp, so be careful about running too many appliances simultaneously otherwise you'll trip. Grey water and Elsan points are convenient, not too far away, and hidden behind a fence out of view. My only complaint would be the flies - literally hundreds of them and were forever getting into the awning and caravan. Not your normal bluebottle type - these were slower and more stupid so fairly easy to swat. Overall, a nice little site for access to Devizes, but not one for a second visit for us.

What a Lovely Site & Very Friendly Owners.

Horse Lane Farm
We arrived 7th June for 1 week & were met & shown onto the field, very neatly kept, tidy & clean. Regularly mowed, with grass box for collection, so no grass walking in the caravan. Lovely open field walks for the dog, with plenty of doggy bins. Easy walk to the Caen Hill Locks, either along the road & then footpath or via a slightly longer all footpath route. Nearest & easiest supermarket, with free parking, in Calne, about 10 mins drive. The farmer does do logging in the barns adjacent to the site from 8am-3pm, but we didn’t find this a problem. We’ll definitely go back for a return stay to explore the area some more.
