Site is lovely and in the heart of the forest with plenty of walks. In Walking distance is a Tesco, a lovely pic. And there is usually an icecream van there on nice weather days!

Kids can freely roam and use the perimeter track for their bikes, traffic is minimal and everyone keeps to the speed limit too!

Pitches are not marked but one of the wardens will guide you to your assigned location and are. Dry helpful. Only downside to the site is the facilities! Toilets are adequate but dated however, there are no showers and the toilets are quite cramped so washing is awkward. In my opinion the addition of a shower block will make this a first class site! (The local sports centre do offer showers for a reasonable fee but is 1. 5 miles away)

We will return as it is very local to us but if you travel a long way be aware of the above!

The site was not at its best as there had been prolonged heavy rain but the team were very welcoming and friendly and explained this - as you would expect. They very kindly found us a spot with some firm footings, supplied an extension lead and we used our mover so as not to churn up any of the greensward.

We love woodland sites and - whilst we prefer to use hook-up, do not require any other facilities. We are regulars at Setthorns in the New Forest and thus had, I think, realistic expectations. We had a good two night stay but the site had an overall air of tiredness - not helped by the collection of stored vans, most of which looked as if they hadn't been moved for a couple of years. The site also had a number of apparently long-term inhabitants, who did not appear particularly welcoming. It's difficult to encapsulate our feelings and we have no wish to be unfair. It's possible that our views may have been influenced by the prevailing weather conditions? The location is great, though, for exploring the nearby town of Marlborough, with all its facilities, and the Vale of White Horse, and indeed the Savernake Forest itself. The Tesco nearby is very handy.

A simple site that really is next to the massive expanse of Savernake Forest.

Basic facilities - only loos but no showers for some reason. Immaculately clean. Washing up facilities too. Loos closed in low season.

Wardens are very friendly and helpful. They keep the site in very good order. No shop as such, just a few supplies during peak season. Tesco is at the bottom of the hill, though.

Very dog-friendly and not far to go to let them off the lead in the forest. Kids seemed to enjoy the site too.

Quite a relaxed atmosphere, which is pleasant, and everyone is very friendly. Road noise is a bit of an issue and it drones virtually all of her time. The sort of site that is great as a base, but not ideal for just sitting and chilling out for a couple of days.

The forest is incredible. Can definitely sit and chill there, and walk a different route every day. More visitors at weekends, not surprisingly, but a magical place with plenty of room for everyone.

Useful, simple site that is well placed for exploring the local area.

Cheerful, Happy, Helpful Staff, thank you.

The only facilities are toilets, which for a May bank holiday weekend were kept amazingly cleaned. This is a popular site, it is ideal for Nature lovers, as it is on the outer edge of the fabulous Savernake Forest. You can walk into Malborough in about 15-20 mins but it is a steep climb on a rough track back up. I would recommend a visit to the Crofton Beam Engines on the canal the café is excellent, then take a walk over to the working Wilton Windmill, don't forget your flour, and if your feeling thirsty do stop at the Swann Inn Free House. Check the Wilton Windmill website for more details of all the mentioned locations, Family Fun.

We used this site on a busy bank holiday weekend. We didn't book anywhere and this was one of the few sites that in the area with spaces. We phoned ahead and the staff were very helpful saying that they were there until 8pm.

Site fees for a tent was £15 and this is a lot for a site without showers.

This is not our usual style of camp site. It's a big capacity site and we usually prefer small quiet sites. It was fairly busy and we were expecting a noisy night. Apart from one moron who was playing music rather loudly in his caravan for about 30 minutes, this proved to be a very tranquil site. There were plenty of kids around but they were all very well behaved. Well done parents!

It's a very picturesque site with good toilet facilities. The washing up station had lashings of very hot water and was left clean.

Overall, a good site if a tad expensive.

This great site is open to all as part of the 'Forest Camping' 50/50 JV with the C&CC and Forestry Commission. I've been coming here with friends since the mid 1990s, and have seen a few changes that's for sure. Here are a few +ve's and -ve's

+ve Staff are friendly, still live on site.

-ve The warden who we used to get on with very well doesn't seem to be there any more.

-ve The old tarmac path through to the public BBQ area has been covered over with brush and soil. I believe this was because it was leading people out to the PUBLIC toilets, and at one time, the SITE toilets were closed and boarded up, and not reopened until the 50/50 JV era. This is a shame as the 'new' access is across muddy, uneven ground, and not nice to use.

-ve The public BBQs have all now been taken up anyway. True, most were heavily vandalised (despite being narrowboat grade steel) but were a handy feature, one less thing to pack and take home 'hot'. A real end of an era.

-ve Still no showers and looking like there never will be - the old shower block IS still there but locked up and either empty or staff only.

-ve As another states, the path to Marlborough is in a real bad state now, thanks to all the rain. It won't recover, it will need work doing to it.

-ve Never thought I would see an industrial estate and big Tesco within a stones throw of the Forest :(( Shame on the planners.

-ve Even the forestry commission themselves don't seem to exist here now, all work done by contractors but.

+ve All the trees felled around 2007 made a huge mess and things looked wrecked. 7 years on and nature has sorted itself out, all logs removed, no big scars in the ground and chippings all mulches away. Looks good again.

Overall, still a great site, the BBQ and Picnic areas (public, not strictly part of the campsite but next to it) are still there and quiet in the evenings as the public car park closes quite early. Great for us campers who can just walk over.
