A Definite "Return" if in the Area CL

Church Farm
Can't really fault anything at this C.L. Spacious area with 6 spots to choose for pitching, all on grass, and 1 Hardstanding. The Owners blurb on the club site covers most of the basics. It's a large farm field so not quite flat in places but easy enough to find a flat space. The facilities are second to none. Excellent waste water area, also for M/H, and the Elsan is very good. There are various recycling bins which are kept in a tidy space. The surrounding field contains 3 or 4 horses and several others are dotted around in adjoining fields. I imagine the owners would probably be happy to accommodate anyone who wanted to bring their own horse here. The various Owls are really the only noise you will hear at night, except for distant explosions from Salisbury Plain when the Army gets going. Points of interest are fairly local and major supermarkets can be found in Devizes or Marlborough. There is free Wifi but in all honesty that is the only thing that didn't work too well. It was OK during the day but dropped out at night so best have a backup. Dog walking would be easy for anyone with Fido. The canal is but 2 minutes away and you can choose which way to walk the dog. We were also able to walk out from site onto the ridge seen above the site and down to the 2 "Altons". Pitches are enhanced so at £15 per night it was good value. A definite 5* site.

Nice and relaxing

Church Farm
We stayed for 10 days in July and found directions and access easy. Please follow the directions in the book and NOT Sat Nav. A very nice flat and peaceful site, with water tap on each pitch. This could be better if you had a grey water drain to each pitch which is quite common now with many CL's. It is part of a livery so you do find the odd person coming to take their horse for a ride. There are plenty of walks around the site and the canal walk to the Barge Inn at Honey Street is nice even if several of the narrow boats moored along the canal path, some have seen better days! However, in my opinion, if you are looking for a better meal you can take the canal walk in the opposite way (Probably 2 miles) or a short drive to All Cannings, the next village. You will find here the Kings Arms pub with excellent meals for the price and they also have a C L site at the rear. (Electric but Not service pitches) I would certainly recommend Church Farm CL site. It is very handy for walkers for the White Horse Trail, which you can undertake from the site or if you fancy a day out in the car Stonehenge, Salisbury and the National Trust property at Stourbridge (Gardens fantastic and currently dogs allowed on a lead) are all within an hours drive of the site (Tractor permitting). A lovely site and we enjoyed our stay.

So peaceful

Church Farm
Wonderful CL, the previous reviews say it all. Nice flat field with EHU and water to each pitch and spotless, grey waste,CDP and bins. Wifi better than most CMHC sites and good TV signal. Situated in the Vale of Pewsey next to the Kennet and Avon canal and within walking distance of the Alton Barnes white horse. Lots to do in the surrounding areas including Avebury, Caen locks, Savernake Forrest and the lovely town of Marlborough. Watched the Paragliding on Huish Ridge when we arrived. Looking forward to finding a spot in the diary for another visit. Thank you Jacky for a lovely stay.

CL Perfection

Church Farm
The best CL we have ever visited!. Beautifully kept site with good sized pitches. Grass being cut on the day we arrived and well-drained despite a fair bit of rain. Having EHU and water to each pitch is such an advantage, and the grey waste, Elsan point and rubbish/recycling areas were immaculate. Being able to watch the livery horses in the surrounding fields is really entertaining, they have such different characters. The proximity to the Kennet and Avon Canal is great, although the towpath eastwards was not good for our electric bikes, too narrow and bumpy, but going west towards Devizes was much better, wide and flat with very few overhanging branches. However, cycling along the relatively quiet roads to Honeystreet Mill café for their Big Barge breakfast was an absolute delight. Evening meal at The Kings Arms, All Cannings (30 minute walk along tow path) was excellent. The 'guide to walks' provided is so helpful as is the comprehensive notice board. The very best quality of this site is the absolute peace and quiet. No road noise, no farm machinery, no railways, just birds and wildlife. Bliss. Thank you Jacky and Bryan, we will be back.

Campervan Visit June 2021

Church Farm
Very well kept site that is well signposted from road and easy to access. Large, flat, firm grass field with open views across paddock and up to the Downs. EHU & water for each pitch with good central emptying facilities. Very friendly owners visit regularly and provide a useful information leaflet. Excellent walking from site with a wonderful Natural England reserve on the Downs which was full of orchids & butterflies when we visited. Avebury & Silbury Hill are accessible via public rights of way and make a a good day out (15m). A delight to watch the barn owls hunting at night from our pitch and lots of bird life around on the farmland & canal. Our idea of a perfect site - we look forward to a return visit.
