Overview

A woodland park in Wiltshire

Set in a woodland park, 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. The campsite is run by the Forestry Commission and is an important habitat for a number of wild birds, plants and animals, which makes it an ideal place to stay for nature lovers.

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.

We are on our third seasonal pitch at Postern Hill.

This review is for Postern Hill - Wiltshire

We are on our third seasonal pitch at Postern Hill. It's ideal for our dogs, as we just walk out of the caravan and are straight into the excellent woodland walks of Savernake Forest. The wardens are friendly and efficient, and are always willing to help if you need it. This is not a site for anyone wanting pristine groomed perfection - it's nature at its best! If you want a child- and dog-friendly, rural grass pitch, with or without hookups, with easy access to Marlborough, this could be the site for you.

The forest setting was suitably romantic for our first overnight trip in our new VW.

This review is for Postern Hill - Wiltshire

The forest setting was suitably romantic for our first overnight trip in our new VW. The site is easy to find, feels remote but has the convenience of a large multinational supermarket within walking distance. The location is great for visiting Neolithic Avebury and we will go again to explore the Savernake Forest.

This review is for Postern Hill - Wiltshire

We stayed there for a week and the site was not very busy so we had the chance to pitch where we wanted. We found out the site had no showers after booking (our mistake) but the toilet block was pretty basic and could use a nice refurb. We stayed in lots of other Camping in the Forest sites as we love them, but probably this is the least favourite. The staff was friendly tho but we had a massive disappointment when we asked where the 'play area' was. It was advertised everywhere and having young kids we wanted to know where it was as we couldn't find it. We were then told that the 'play area' is actually an area to play, just grass where kids can play. Maybe I'm wrong, but in every site we stayed there is a 'play area' with at least a few basic things kids can jump, swing, etc. Will we stay again? No, I think you can get the same staying in a nearby farm or certified site.
