    Would love next year to visit the city of Bath for the first time and would appreciate information of good sites close by with good access onto the Kennet & Avon Canal that we could cycle into Bath on the towpath...

    Thanks in advance....

    Depends how far you want to be from Bath.
    Devizes is a good spot

    You can cycle along the towpath in to Bath from the site at Bath Marina.
    Alternatively the Park & Ride bus service is just across the road.
    Further afield are the C&CC and Three Magpies sites at Sells Green, Devizes.
    Both are within a few hundred yards from the Kennet & Avon canal.

    Thanks for that. Have just Googled that Site and it fits the bill for our requirements. 2 miles from the city and on the canal with EHU & awning for 7 days at a very reasonable price next May.

    Will book it when her indoors gets home later this afternoon.
