Camping du Logis Brittany. Canal 300 metres with excellent surfaced towpaths.
New mills marina campsite, you overlook the old canal basin.
Bath Marina - towpath was overgrown narrow and muddy in places when we went but it was while ago so may have been improved. There were also impatient cyclists some of whom crept up behind us without ringing their bell to warn us - seemed to think it was their right of way. More recent visitors will be able to advise the current state of it.
this is a lovely site.....we were there a couple of weeks ago just before the snow....visiting family in Stroud
The canal du midi in France has several campsites and Aires most of the Aires are free.
We also visited a couple of weeks ago.
The site's comparable to any CMC site that we've visited.
Pub food was pretty decent and they serve Dorset Gold (lovely pint imo)
Slimbridge Wetland Centre is an easy 15 minute walk away
Nice walk into Audlem from there or water taxi in the summer.
They now run a site, open to all, as well as the CL.
Wigrams campsite at the junction of the Grand Union and Oxford canals, good walk, boatyard and marinas nearby, pub up the road.
Can be very busy as they bend the 5 van rule, but nice quiet location outside busy periods. Stayed twice so can't be too bad.
Love Devizes, good one if you like cycling as nice wide towpaths and pubs in all directions
Braunston marina 5 van site. Grove lock marina at Leighton buzzard.three magpies at sells green Manor road farm long itchington, about 1/2 mile from canal or on the canal the blue lias pub
Glencote Caravan Park,Cheddleton, Leek ST13 7EE. Alongside the Caldon Canal and the Churnet Valley Steam Railway. Stayed there last weekend only negative is to access hard standing you have to drive across grass . Can recommend the Red Lion Pub for choice of beer and food.
Stayed here when we had the camper nice sight
5 years back
we did a pub stop over in rugby that was canalside cant remeber th name but close to the rugby cement works
Try @old-mo at Haughton, Cycle out of site, turn left and then first left down Station road to pick the railway walk up, turn left on there to go to Gnosall where you can get onto the canal.
We stayed at Devizes C&CC site last week and had a wonderful time with brilliant weather. We scootered and cycled to Devizes and back and then went the following day to The Barge PH on the canal. We're hooked on canal walks and have bought "Canal Walks of England and Wales" by Ray Quinlan. The history of the canals is bizarre.
We loved the site, stayed there last week. Pubs great and lovely cycle to Devizes and pub lunch at The Barge.
