This site is set in the countryside, in Wiltshire, designated as an ‘Area of outstanding beauty.’
A small site with only 50 pitches. A mix of grass and hard standing with a few pitches having open aspect views whilst most are tucked away in woodland. For those who don’t like uniform rows of pitches this is a good choice, typically you will only see two or three other pitches from your caravan.
A small reception stands at the entrance of the site. Basic groceries and caravan essentials are available to buy in reception. Next to reception is a tiny information room with leaflets suggesting things to do during your stay. Paula’s herb garden grows to the side of the office for those culinary campers amongst us.
Salisbury has a small facilities block with 3 toilets, 3 privacy cubicles and 3 showers. A vanity area with hairdryer and full length mirror are available for the ladies to use.
The toilet block closes for an hour just before lunch for cleaning and they open an extra toilet for use during cleaning time. I like sites that have a toilet that you are able to use whilst they clean. It’s also a bonus as it means you can go for a quick wee on your day of departure. A disabled bathroom is also available upon request. The laundry comes complete with one washer, one dryer and hand washing sinks. In July, 2017 the price was £4 per wash. The washing up area is small and outdoors at the end of the block.
Due to a small, narrow lane on the approach to the site they ask that check out is before 11.30am and no arrivals until after 12pm. The Lane is only narrow for approximately 50 yards, so nothing to worry about if you stick to their advised departure and arrival times.
Pitches are tucked away in woodland glades of two, three, four and five pitches. Perfect if you are away in a group and can secure a glade to yourselves. Some pitches in the woodland areas need choking up for levelling. You can find pitches though that need very little levelling.
There are no playground facilities for children but if you choose the right pitch they have access to a small woodland to tire themselves out in and let their imaginations run wild.
A dog walk is set to the side of the site. A narrow fenced path with bushes for about a quarter of a mile opens up into a meadow, perfect for throwing a ball and running off excess energy.
The nearest supermarket is approximately 9 miles away in Salisbury. So make sure you stock up as you can’t just nip to the shops. The site office sells any basics you may run out of. The site is in the back of beyond and benefits from the peace and quite of the countryside.
Wifi is located in a hot spot near the office. O2 and 3 phone signals and 4G were good on site.
We paid £40.40 for two nights in mid July.
