"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.

My wife and I were very lucky with the weather-May bank holiday weekend, the hottest so far this year! We had an epic 5 day break here, the site is absolutely gorgeous. We were allowed to pitch where we liked (keeping to the 6m rule) and found a nice secluded spot near a big bush where we had an enormous amount of birds popping in!! The forest is huge and we spent a whole day there walking. Marlborough is a delightful little town only a short walk as is Tescos and a BP garage. The main road near the site is very noisy but it didn't spoil our break. Toilets are adequate, clean and presentable. Plenty of waste and CDP points and EHU posts if you need them. Definitely recommend it and we would definitely return.

This was the first time that we used our caravan and besides the really wet weather we enjoyed ourselves and will most definitely return; but feel that we would prefer to stay when it is a bit drier. Due to forest location, not the best for wet weekend. Fantastic place for dog owners.

Arrived for the weekend only to find toilets were shut from Sunday, no mention of this when booking. Site manager disagreeable and rude bordering thug like and threatening towards us. We left and got a refund. Thoroughly disappointing end to our 2 week trip away. Membership cancelled.

Large family group first time at this site, it was excellent. Made welcome by friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble. Put on loads of events for jubilee weekend which was good fun. Campsite was spotless. Nice walk into town through woods.

We are season pitch holders on our 4th season. Find the staff friendly, helpful and polite. This season so far they have kept the site to a high standard considering the bad weather and still found the time to tow campers in and out. We have a 9 year old son who loves the site and we feel very reassured that he is safe playing around the site due to the security by the staff. Our 2 year old dog also loves it :) We frequently have family and friends visit and we highly recommend this site.

We spent 6 nights at Postern Hill in april the wardens are very friendly and helpful, it was very wet but it did not stop us going about our days we have 3 dogs who love it there as you can walk straight into the forest which is beautiful the wardens have put up information posters to tell all about the forest we have seen deer many times, as it is a regular site for us to use we go at least6times a year Marlborough is a market town with a market on Saturday also a short walk from the site is a Tesco which is well stock we have recommended the site to many people in the past we have been going there for 15 years we love the site and the wardens

We have stayed at this camp site for at least 10 years, we have always enjoyed our stays, it has some lovely walk for dogs lovers and their owners. It is clean and tidy, no dog mess on the site. The wardens go out of their way to make you feel welcome and leave you to enjoy you holiday. The toilet blocks are spotless.Marlborough is a quaint town plenty of shops, and a tescos a five minute walk away. WE dont live far from the campsite and always go back at least twice a year for a quite rest .

â€¢ Not the friendliest staff on the planet, and certainly not up to Camping & Caravaning Club standards. Decidedly disagreeable attitude.
â€¢ Pleasant site (and very handy for the delightful town of Marlborough), but adjacent to a busy main road.
â€¢ Very poor drainage, even on highest ground.
â€¢ Facilities adequate, but loos didn't always flush.
Overall: sadly, not recommended.
DATE STAYED: April 2012
Lovely site for our extended family to meet up, we had a great time & will be back in 2012 summer. Just for a weekend visit is fine with no showers, toilet block clean & washing up facilities were as u would expect.

Spent 4 days here in the middle of February. We received a very warm welcome from the warden who warned us that due to the recent rain the pitches were difficult and that we should park too far back so that he would be able to pull us off. The pitches were poor and we would have been in great trouble had he not been able to use his tractor mower to pull us off.It did mean we decided to remain parked up rather than explore locally. The owners really should invest some of the fees (which certainly are not cheap) into providing more hardstandings on this all year round site. Surroundings are lovely though and the newly opened Tesco is just a short walk down the hill.
