Small, but friendly site. As this was our first "expedition" out with the children and a tent, the owners of the site made things easy for us. Lovely play area for the children in the middle so they could be seen at all times. Was busy when we were there, but didn't feel crowded. Basic facilities, but kept clean. Well signposted from the main road. Would recommend.

Just got back from a stay at this campsite. We have not been camping for several years and were a bit apprehensive beforehand, but we needn't have worried. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and the camp site had everything we needed.

The play area was in an excellent central position and we could see our children at all times. The facilities impressed us with an excellent little shop full of everything you might need. There was no problem with water facilities being spread out as the site is not too large anyway.

The site is a touring site and there was a lot of changeover, with many people staying just the one night. It also has a very cosmopolitan feel to it. However, we relaxed and extended our stay from 3 nights to 6. We found it an excellent base from which to visit Wiltshire and Dorset.

Good site, good people, good fun!

I stayed here 3 nights, Tuesday to Thursday. Very easy to find, although I don't envy you caravan owners down those narrow lanes, with lovely clean toilets, good shop and very nice and helpful owners. However, my first pitch was too close to the "balancing beams playground", with a rubbish bin right behind and next to the path to the other tents. Kids playing football also hit my table and tent a few times. One or two of these I could have coped with, until a dog owner walked her dog off the lead past my tent, let it it wee on my car while I said hallo and my dog barked, and then on her way back let it come right up to my tent, setting my dog off and tables flying!!! So the next morning I moved pitch to a recently vacated one behind me, without asking (sorry), and then told the owners. They took it very well. Learnt from this to think about my pitch a bit more carefully next time.

It was very busy, with a lot of overnighters, but was not noisy at all. I did find it a bit cramped, although the tents were a nice distance apart, and as it was quiet got worried with my kids laughing and giggling in bed at 10.00. Think it would be a fantastic site when quieter, so near all sights, Longleat, Stonehenge etc! Would return, but not in high season!

This is a very friendly rural campsite. It was busy when we visited, but even so did not feel crowded. The partly wooded site is level with concrete pitches for caravan / mhomes. Obviously popular for visitors to Stonehenge and Salisbury, there was a truly international feel to the site, we counted at least 5 different nationalities visiting.

The staff were helpful with info about the local amenities and the small shop as most of the basics that you might need. 2 nice pubs are exactly 1 mile from the site. Shower block and hot water are clean and adequete for the site. There is a small adventure playground on site and enough space in the middle of the field for ball games. Overall we really liked this site and would visit it again.

Small and friendly site. Toilet facilities basic but clean. Shop stocks all that you need. Surrounding countryside peaceful with plenty of places for kids to play. Can get busy.

Some residential caravans on site.......

Nice, quiet, level site situated in Orcheston village. Most touring pitches are paved with flagstones so getting level is simple. No bar or restaurant on the site, but there are three pubs serving meals in nearby Shrewton.

Easy to find with signs from the main road. Small shop but well stocked with just about everything you need.

Shower block and toilets are very clean and tidy. Services are spread around at different locations on the campsite so you have to go to one place to get fresh water, and another to empty your waste water, so it would be nice if they were all together.

TV reception is very poor. No one on the site could get a good picture when we were there.

Stonehenge is about 5 miles away. Avebury and Silbury Hill are 15 miles, as is Devizes so you are ideally located to explore the whole of Wiltshire.

Plan your stay well in advance! You are right on the edge of Salisbury Plain and the nearest Army firing range is only half a mile away so it could get noisy!!

Playground for the kids in the middle of the park. Dogs are allowed on the site, but you have to leave the park when the call of nature needs to be answered. This can be a real pain last thing at night. A dog walking area would be nice.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the site and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing break.
