The ablution facilities aren't great.

This review is for Bush Farm

The ablution facilities aren't great. A lot of spiders, moths and other insects in the toilet and shower cubicles. Had to pay 2GBP to shower and the shower mat was covered in mould. It rained quite heavily in the afternoon which made the floors very slippery. No rubber mats anywhere. No outside light at dishwashing station which made it difficult to see. However, forest tent site was great and well laid out.

What a surprise ! We had a superb stay at this quiet and secluded site.

This review is for Bush Farm

What a surprise ! We had a superb stay at this quiet and secluded site. The farm walk is a must - its only a mile but you see bison, wapiti, goats, donkies and a host of smaller farmyard animals. We had a really warm welcome, and although the shower/toilets block is a bit basic, we will definitely be back with our grandchildren.

This review is for Bush Farm

An unusual site to describe & review... The camping is in woodland clearings and the washing facilities are basic. There are showers but at £2 maybe a bit expensive. But where else can you catch a glimpse through the trees of... bison? !The site is part of a farm rearing bison and elk and, for half the usual admission price, you can tour the farm and take in these, together with racoons, prairie dogs, rheas, & guanacos (nope never heard of them before either). Altogether - friendly, unusual and interesting.

I can't believe there isn't a review on this site fabulous and friendly welcome site, we were not blessed with great weather for the first 2 days but glorious sunshine the day we left which is aways the way! very friendly site which has a small grass field next to their working farm stunning views of the bison and other animals deer,goats,sheep etc across the field, we had a nice secluded pitch and were the only ones in this particular part though I think the farm has other pitches in the woodland area the walk around the farm was a must! not disapointing my young daughter was in awe of the billy goats and rhea, there are raccoons even a skunk and lots more a must visit site! only a short drive from longleat zoo as well shall return
