General

  • Small family-run site next to the Kennet & Avon Canal
  • Walking, cycling and fishing along the canal towpath
  • Within easy reach of Avebury, Stonehenge and Bath

Are these ducks among the cutest neighbours you might see waddling along at any waterside site in the land? This quacking state of affairs is at family-run Foxhangers Canalside Holidays in Wiltshire, a peaceful place next to the Kennet & Avon Canal which flows placidly between Reading and Bristol.

Foxhangers is on a 90-acre farm, around a mile from the village of Rowde and three miles from Devizes. Famed south-west destinations including Avebury and Stonehenge, the Georgian city of Bath and Longleat Safari Park are all within easy reach.

The farm is next to the canal towpath, an all-weather path for cycling or walking along its flight of 18th-century locks along to Devizes or into the Wiltshire countryside. The canal is also well stocked with fish: angling licences can be bought on site.

Foxhangers has showers and toilets in a block 40 yards from the accommodation fields, a washing-up area and chemical disposal. Gas cylinders are available to buy.

  • Liked: 

    Simplicity of the campsite. Very relaxed atmosphere, not too big and not loads of pitches all packed in. Pitch size was good, with decent facilities which were well maintained and constantly cleaned with antiseptic etc.
    Loads to do nearby and beautiful surroundings. The weather was fantastic. Fishing available from the canal and tickets bought from the site. One of the best holidays we’ve had.

    Disliked: 

    Could do with a kids play area perhaps, but to be fair this wasn’t overly missed as there was lots of places to make ‘dens’.

A 20-mile drive will take you to the Roman baths, shopping and beaut old buildings of UNESCO World Heritage city of Bath along the River Avon; if you're a literary type, take pride in a trip to the city's Jane Austen Centre to see its museum on the writer and have a sup in its Regency tearoom.
