Overview

A woodland park in Wiltshire

Set in the Savernake Forest, Postern Hill is a peaceful campsite with sheltered pitches and plenty of wildlife to enjoy - keep a lookout for the deer. The surroundings are perfect for leisurely strolls on gentle, flat forest trails. Set in the 4,500 acre Savernake Forest, the campsite is ideal for exploring historic Wiltshire, with Stonehenge, Avebury Stone Circle and Salisbury Cathedral all within easy reach. Nearby there is the Westonbirt Arboretum, with its magnificent displays of trees and shrubs, Longleat Safari Park or the National Trust village of Lacock. 

Full of ancient registered oak, beech and sweet chestnut trees, this Forestry Commission woodland boasts the largest beech avenue in the UK and has even received SSSI status due to the diversity of wildlife which can be seen there.

Visited this site many times over many years, very disappointed on last visit was welcoming on...

This review is for Postern Hill - Wiltshire

Visited this site many times over many years, very disappointed on last visit was welcoming on arrival no complaints but after that seemed not so friendly. Have new wardens which is fine but you never see them around the site, toilets dirty and really need knocking down and starting again. Seemed less permanent caravans there and the ones near the toilets everytime I visited the children just running in out of the toilets constantly. Site seemed very run down, used to have bits and pieces to buy in reception/shop not anymore which was a shame. Sadly won't be visiting again as not value for money at all.

Arrived late, site manager came out to greet us. Very friendly and helpful.

This review is for Postern Hill - Wiltshire

Arrived late, site manager came out to greet us. Very friendly and helpful. We were able to pitch where we wanted as long as 6m between us and neighbours. Kids loved playing in the forest. Washing up facilities very good - plenty of hot water! Whilst there aren't showers on site there is a leisure centre about a mile downhill from the site, in Marlborough, where you can use the showers for a small fee. Shop on-site good for basics (bread, milk, local free range eggs). Ice block freezing facility for a small fee. Peaceful location, though some sections of the site do have a little road noise at night.
