Waterside campsites near Devizes guide

Overview

Settled in South West England, Devizes invites campers to immerse themselves in a world of history and nature. Settle into a tent or caravan pitch nearby and embark on a journey through time at Lacock Abbey, a timeless marvel in Lacock with charming streets and well-preserved medieval buildings. Traverse the serene pathways along the historic Kennet and Avon Canal, where locks whisper tales of centuries-old transportation while campers boat on the water. Delve into the mysteries of Savernake Forest, where towering trees and hidden trails create an idyllic backdrop for a hiking adventure. Stay in an array of campsites, from grass tent pitches to caravan parks to glamping sites on alpaca farms, with amenities like showers, electrical hookups, and scenic views.

Where to go

Savernake Forest

About a half-hour drive from Devizes is Savernake Forest, an ancient woodland that is a Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) where towering oaks and serene trails offer an escape into nature. Campers can explore a network of pathways, such as Grand Avenue—a majestic tree-lined path through the heart of the forest. For a longer trek, take a hike on an unmarked trail past Big Belly Oak—one of the oldest oaks in the country. Stay on-site in year-round campsites that offer flat green pitches for tents and caravans and access to toilets, wash basins, and a shop.

Lacock Abbey

Twenty minutes northeast of Devizes is the village of Lacock, known for its charming streets and medieval buildings. After a leisurely stroll through the village's cobbled lanes, step into a realm of history at Lacock Abbey, which was founded in 1232. Explore the grand rooms and medieval cloisters that feature rare examples of medieval monastic architecture. Then see the areas where films like Harry Potter were made, and don't miss the captivating photographic museum. Stay at a nearby holiday park with hard-standing and grass pitches that offer electric hookups, showers, and chemical disposal. Or set up amongst alpacas in a private bell tent rental with double beds and log burners.

Kennet and Avon Canal

Explore Kennet and Avon Canal, which meanders right through Devizes. Take a leisurely walk along the towpath next to the historic waterway that stretches through picturesque countryside. Observe the working locks, canoe in the canal’s waters, go fishing, or take a boat trip out Devizes Wharf. Settle in for the night at a waterside campsite with tent and caravan pitches and amenities such as showers, toilets, electricity hookups, and direct access to the canal for boating and fishing.

When to go

Summers in Devizes offer comfortable temperatures, ranging from 20–25°C. Visits to historical sites and canal activities are ideal during this season. Spring and fall bring milder weather and vibrant landscapes, ideal for forest hikes and canal-side picnics. Winter unveils a quieter charm with temperatures ranging from 2–8°C.
