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.

Superb

Our first time to this lovely well kept site, which even after the bank holiday is full. We booked here in place of a 5 star adults only site in Chippenham which we have used for over 4 years, but a change in owner appears to have resulted in the reviews for that going downhill fast. Yes this site doesn't have wifi, toilets or serviced pitches, but what it lacks in those facilities it makes up for with a wonderful warm welcome, fantastically kept grass and the minimum requirements for caravanning. If you are a foodie you have some fantastic places to shop. An Italian bakery in Devizes, 2 superb butchers in Bromham and Devizes a farm shop at Bromham and a local cider producer about 1/4 mile from the entrance to the farm. There is a selection of good takeaways and restaurants between here and Devizes, plus a great ice cream parlour in Rowde. This is a working farm so you get all the wonderful sounds and smells you'd expect but the peace and quiet makes it super relaxing. We've already booked again for a months time, even though we only live 6 miles away it's worth it.

Cycling advice

We stayed for just one night on our way home from Cornwall, with the idea of cycling on the Kennet and Avon canal. It was well worth it. The site is a pleasant field, which was fine for our motorhome as the weather has been dry. As it's a farm you will hear the usual farm machinery noises, and the road is fairly busy in the day, but not too noisy. Plenty of lovely bird noises too, and we watched a wagtail escape the attentions of a sparrowhawk. It's not far from the campsite to the canal at Caen Locks (which are very impressive), and the towpath ride towards the east through Devizes was very pleasant. Just be careful on the road outside the campsite at busy times. It is unrestricted then 30mph within a half a mile, when you reach Rowde village. We'll return one day to try the ride towards Trowbridge on the canal.

A lovely family holiday!

We stayed here for 7 nights with our 2 children. It is a lovely site, there are no real views as the hedges are high but this does not spoil the site at all. The owner keeps the field very tidy. The owners and his son who help out were very welcoming and friendly. The son had good knowledge of the area and was able to help me map a run out and also advise on places to visit. The site is situated nicely for visiting local areas. We will definitely return in the future.

One of the Best

The previous accolades are fully justified. We were warmly welcomed by Ann; Chris and son James were both working on the farm. Although no longer caravanners themselves their previous experience has meant they are able to provide the facilities we all wish for. We were on site at a very busy time, but were never inconvenienced by noise, even during late night harvesting. As well as harvesting [James is a whizz on the tele-handler stacking the bales of hay] it was also a stressful time as the cattle were being tested for TB, which they passed! Although tv is listed as fair we had good reception, nor did we have any problems with 10 amp power. As well as Devizes, the site is well placed for Melksham, Calne, Chippenham and Bath, and Laycock and Corsham used as film sets for period dramas. We went to the George Inn in Sandy Lane, about 3 miles on the Chippenham Road. They do a very good carvery at a reasonable price. We shall be back provided Ann and Chris are not victims of their own success.

Tidy venue

A local CL for us to explore North Wiltshire. Well maintained by friendly owners and spacious with easy access. Visits to Lacock and the Caen Hill Locks on the Kennet and Avon Canal are a must and we liked Devizes which has broad selection of all the usual services on offer.
