To Find site:-  Leave M4 at junction 17 and head towards Chippenham. At double traffic lights turn left at second set into Plough Lane. The site is a few hundred metres along this road on the right.  There is a barrier with a telecom for you to contact reception.

Plough Lane is a delightful adult’s only campsite situated a couple of miles north of the town of Chippenham and conveniently near the M4.  The care and attention lavished on the site is clearly obvious when you arrive.  Reception provides a really comprehensive information folder on arrival which you can retain until you leave.  There are just 50 pitches, all of them on gravel hardstandings of a good size and generously spaced. They are set out around  gravelled site roads with almost a garden like appearance. There are both standard pitches and fully serviced, the latter having a dedicated water supply and drain point.  Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. There are several service points dotted around the site and the only chemical toilet emptying point is near to reception. There is no dedicated drive over motorhome waste point but site staff can arrange for a drain cover to be lifted if you have a suitable waste hose to reach. Otherwise, of course, tanks can be manually emptied. The toilet block is of an excellent standard and has some nice touches. There is a covered washing up area plus addition sinks in the well-equipped laundry room. There is not much lighting around the site at night so a torch would be useful. The site has free site wide WiFi but it does have DNS monitoring software which is in place to prevent navigation to unsuitable websites! In reception there is more local information plus book exchange. Price wise the site operate a one price all season which can make early/late stays more seem expensive compared to Club sites that operate seasonal pricing, during our midweek stay, in early October,  the site was only 20% full.

The town of Chippenham is only a couple of miles away. There is an hourly bus service from near to the site into the town for those that don’t want to use their own transport. Chippenham is  a good shopping centre and on the outskirts there are several supermarkets. Many places of interest are within easy travelling distance. About ten minutes’ walk from the site is the Plough Inn which has a nice looking restaurant although check the food serving times.
