We've stayed at this site a few times before and it's always been fabulous. The facilities are really well looked after. We've stayed as part of a group and always found the two toilets have been more than adequate for a full site.

The farm has recently opened a vintage shop selling household items and stuff for the garden. Well worth a look if you like something unusual.

The ground is flat and never been a problem getting pegs in. There's pleasant views across the field towards the town with the abbey on the horizon. There are some lovely walks along the nearby river and around the town itself.

We love the fact we can use an off the ground fire pit. You can't beat a camp fire.

The owners are very friendly and always welcoming.

The perfect campsite for a visit to Malmesbury! Very small, lovely triangular paddock with beautifully mown and squashy grass, campers are one-deep backing onto the hedge, so all have a superb view of the Abbey. This is reached by a leisurely stroll across the one field adjoining the campground and takes no more than 6 or 7 minutes to arrive at the Abbey!

The facilities at the campground are well maintained and very nice and clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Don't miss a stroll around the farm which is very old and interesting. Our first visit to Malmesbury and we loved it, an absolute gem of a place, wonderfully interesting and beautiful, with loads of walks to soak it all up. The Abbey is a highlight of course but also lots of places to eat and some great pubs, we recommend 'the smoking dog' and 'the whole hog'. The campground is lovely and peaceful to sleep it off and wake up in such a lovely part of our wonderful England.

We spent a pleasant two nights here in late September - since we were there off-season it was very quiet. The owner was very welcoming and friendly, the facilities were clean and tidy and the view of Malmesbury from the campsite was a bonus. The fees for a family of 5 are a little steep considering showers are an extra £1 (the most expensive shower I've ever had on a campsite) but if we were just a couple it wouldn't be so bad.

We made use of the Co-op in town for food essentials and spent the day at Westonbirt Arboretum which I would definitely recommend. It looks like the town is within walking distance but the weather was against us trying it this visit.

I would be happy to return to this campsite.

Just spent two nights at this site and really loved it. The field is small and pretty, with the shepherds hut and bell tent in the corner. These are really charming and I would love to stay in either. The views from the pitches are fabulous, with Malmesbury Abbey especially lovely when lit up at night. The facilities are just right and even though there were 4 other units on the first night we always seemed to have them to ourselves. The owners are friendly and we will definitely be adding this to our list of sites to return to.

Reviewer: Pitchnputt 1 review from this member

We stayed for a friend's birthday and she'd hired the whole site.

It's a small site, but I think there were more pitches than the 5 stated in the info at the top - there were, I think, 6 hook up points, with one taken up by the glamping bell tent (there's also a 'shepherd's hut' available for hire. Aside from that, there was more space, though the field is a narrow triangular shape, so the space certainly is limited. It's flat and grassy and pegs go in easily. Pitches are not marked out.

The facilities are small, but I'd say appropriate to the size of the site. They appear quite new and well looked after. One review talked about an 'outside' toilet, but I would say it's just accessed from a separate external door in the toilet block - it's not the sort that 'outside toilet' makes me think of!

The views are very pleasant, with the Abbey clearly visible across the fields.

It's a roughly 10 minute walk into the centre of Malmesbury either across the fields, or down the road (a bit further, but probably easier in the dark!) although there's not a pavement all the way. Malmesbury is an attractive town with small shops and is reasonably well set up for tourists, so there are plenty of places to eat and drink and the Abbey and Abbey House Gardens both attract plenty of visitors. There's a small Co-op in town, or a larger one fairly close to the site on the edge of town.

A short walk down the road from the site is the Spice Merchant, an Indian restaurant which also does takeaways. I believe the owners are originally from Kerala, so as well as the usual dishes, there are some more unusual ones worth trying if you like to experiment a bit.

This is a lovely little site - a flat, lush field bordered on one side by a thick hedge and with a lovely view of Malmesbury on the other.

Easy to reach from the M4 (J17), it's run by a very welcoming family who keep the facilities in excellent order. There's an honesty box for the lovely shower - much better than messing around with tokens.

Yes, the cows can be noisy early in the morning but the excitable mooing at feeding time doesn't last very long once they've got the food in front of them. We heard very little other noise from the farm, apart from the occasional chug of a tractor.

I can't understand the previous comment about a noisy road nearby because the Malmesbury bypass (a single carriageway) - which you should take to get to the site rather than let your satnav take you through the town - is a good distance away behind trees and I had to try very hard to hear any traffic!

Malmesbury is a short walk away across the fields and is a pretty little town with enough to keep you interested for a day. We're not great gardeners but would recommend Abbey House Gardens, which has real imagination. Just be careful not to turn up on one of its naturist - yes, not naturalist - days unless that's your thing! I think they call them 'Clothes Optional Days'.

We would definitely return.
