Plough Lane Caravan Site – Chippenham, Wiltshire
How do you describe our caravan site? The review below was left by a visitor last season and we feel it says it all ..
‘This is a lovely adult only site. The grounds are beautifully kept. The showers are really clean with nice touches such as soap, shampoo and lotion in the shower cubicles. The washing up area is gleaming and each plot has a flat gravel area as well as a lawn. The welcome folder is the most comprehensive I have ever seen anywhere and the reception has tonnes of extra information’.
50 level pitches are attractively laid out over 4 acres of landscaped grounds and are easily accessible from Cotswold stone roadways. Each pitch is half hard standing and half grass; all have 16 amp hook-ups. 25 fully serviced pitches also have fresh water tap and grey water drain.
The 5-star heated facilities block is warm and bright with spacious showers, individual washing cubicles, hair dryers and thoughful, homely touches like hand cream and tissues.
Guests with accessibility concerns are catered for – we have ramped access to our separate disabled shower and WC and every effort is made to accommodate special requests such as being near the facilities.
You can do the washing up undercover or indoors and make use of a laundry equipped with washing machine, dryer and iron. There’s even a free spin dryer.
There’s a supermarket nearby, village pubs serving food within walking distance and the site is well serviced by buses. Cyclists can join the Sustrans North Wiltshire Rivers Route without using a car.
