Reviewer: Melliemel 3 reviews from this member

We booked a last minute weekend, my husband, our folding camper and myself. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the on-site shop was well stocked for everything we needed, loved the sweet selection!.

It was well-kept level field, with the electric points well spread out, the toilet block was lovely and clean and adequately lit across the field to make the journey safe in the middle of the night!

There were horses in the field next door which were very entertaining in the middle of the night, they sounded like they were going to join us (much to my husband's concern).

Good choice of local supermarket's with Tescos and Lidls at Amesbury and Durrington. Excellent butchers in Shrewton, nearest Macdonalds was in Salisbury as my husband has the pleasure of taking my niece and nephew.

I prefer the smaller sites and this is definitely one we will be using often.

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of April. We chose the site based on reviews from here and were not disappointed.

The showers and toilet block is basic and at times the water was almost too hot in the showers, generally unheard of in a campsite! The showers themselves are a bit aging but we go to camp and not for hotel facilities (and I've had worse in hotels!)

We had a hardstanding pitch with hookup, our awning on the side and motorbike trailer on the rear. The site is small but we never felt that we were on top of anyone and vise versa.

The weather was amazing the whole stay which of course helps.It is a beautiful location and a little sun trap.

We walked to the pub a couple of times, only about a mile and a nice walk. The pubs in the village of Shrewton could be better and serving food would be a bonus but we were happy to bbq nightly. This was not a problem on the site which is nice all they ask is that bbqs are lifted off the ground to protect the grass, large blocks are available to help this.

The owners were more than helpful and as trail riders we are aware that sometimes we are not everyone's favourite people, but we were never made to feel unwelcome at all, in fact quite the opposite.

Overall I would say this is a perfect get away site and was in an ideal location for us to explore the many legal byways riding all over Salisbury Plain.

We spent three nights here over the bank holiday weekend and had a fantastic time with our campervan, awning and three boys. Despite the fact that the weather was fantastic and it was a long weekend, although the site was well attended it was not crammed full, we had some privacy and the facilities were more than able to cope.

The site is certainly not one that you will just trip over as you drive past, it's in a secluded area of the village of Orcheston in a slight valley. The site is a large field with hard standing EHU areas to the right as you drive in and a large area around the rest of the field for more ad-hoc pitching of campers / tents. In the centre is a small play area for children. There are various picnic tables / benches around the field.

When we stayed, there was a good selection of all types of camping units and none seemed to have any difficulty in their locations.

Reception also houses the village shop, which has some basics that you may have forgotten and a good selection of items that are very reasonably priced given that you're a relatively captive market if you've already pitched up and don't want to leave for the night.

The toilet / shower block is functional, with two showers, 3 cubicles & 2 urinals in the Gents, along with three separate sinks. The ladies has similar (minus urinals)and also has a hair dryer, both have baby changing mats & tables and were regularly cleaned and despite going to the shower at different times each day, we never had to queue and always had hot water.

There are two local pubs about a mile walk away and a Londis in the village of Shrewton, five miles away in Larkhill there's two more convenience stores, an Indian, Chinese and fish and chip take-away and a few other facilities. Durrington has a small Tesco & Sainsbury's. Amesbury has most local amenities and you're not that far from Salisbury which has pretty much everything that you could want or need.

Stonehenge itself is about 4 miles away and is wonderful for what it is, but no so wonderful for what it's become by necessity, a mecca for large tourist coaches and somewhat overpriced.

You're not too far away from the New Forest should you want to get out for the day and about an hour and a half in the car will take you to Lulworth Cove & Durdle Door on the Dorset 'Jurassic Coast'.

All in all, this is a gem of a campsite, the location is wonderful and the facilities very good; we'll definitely visit again.

This is a small and friendly campsite, with plenty of room for children to play including a small playground area.

It has a well stocked shop that was open all day and all the extras you might need, including: broadband, phone charging, fresh bread to order, and a good supply of books.

The washroom and washing up facilities were clean and tidy.

Our pitch was flat and partly shaded, and the picnic table nearby was a nice extra.

We will definitely be visiting again.

What a lovely little site this is, it's in the middle of nowhere yet close to Stonehenge, Salisbury and Devises.

The site is mainly grass with a few hard standings, most with electric hook ups. The toilet and showers are basic but kept very clean.

If you want to get away from it all this is the place to chill! There is unlimited wi-fi for a flat fee of 5 for the duration of your stay, nice one!

Overall great place will go back. Recommended.

Reviewer: RoaringMeg 3 reviews from this member

Access is gained along narrow village lanes with oncoming traffic which can be quite disconcerting. The village the site is located in is beautiful but there are no amenities (pubs!) in walking distance. Stonehenge is not within walking distance and can not be seen from the site. The site is quiet with few amenities. The prices must have been recently increased as it now costs 17 a night in March. They, very annoyingly, charge extra for an awning. I know that these people have a business to run but surely if you pay for a pitch you should be able to use that pitch how you want to - a caravan and awning is no bigger than some of the large tents you get. The owners were unhelpful to some other campers on the site - they were in a group of families from all over the country and despite letting the owners know that some of them had got stuck in traffic and would be arriving late (7pm) wouldn't let them pitch up.

Owners response:

I believe that roaringmegs review about our campsite (Stonehenge Touring Park) to be misplaced and inaccurate due to the following reasons.

1. We have not had any caravans with awnings staying on site during March to date, nor any family groups staying on site this year.

2. Our tariff has not changed for the last 2-3 years and is clearly accessed on our website.

3. There are two pubs within a one mile walk of the campsite.

4. Stonehenge is situated four miles from the campsite as described on our website.

5. No new arrivals to the campsite have been refused access this year.

I can only assume that this person has reviewed the wrong campsite or is a member or knows a member of a 4x4 group that had made a prior booking for the weekend of the 11th March for 6 caravans with a special pre-arranged tariff. Although the confirmation and the terms and conditions on our website clearly state acceptable times of arrival we were informed at lunchtime on the day of arrival that one member would not be able to arrive until after 9.00pm as they were not setting out until late, they were informed that this was not acceptable. Later in the afternoon the organiser telephoned to cancel the booking for all units even after confirming he had read his confirmation with respect to times of arrival which he freely agreed with.

Had it been as the reviewer said, that they could not arrive until 7pm this would not have been a problem as at this time of year 7pm would have been an acceptable time of arrival.

I am quite happy with constructive criticism but strongly object to untruths. On this occasion I feel that roaringmegs review is unfounded, unjustified and untrue. (or posted against the wrong campsite). As already stated we have had no caravans with awnings paying 17 as stated for the month of March (so did she really stay here?).
