Lovely, quite basic site, with a very relaxed feel. No marked pitches. No problems with the EHU. No toilet facilities open while we were there.

The staff are fabulous, and were lovely with our children, who were desperate to play with the rabbits, who have a hutch near reception. Very helpful and friendly. Which adds to that relaxed feel.

A great site for a weekend. Didn't need the car while we were there. Walked into Marlborough, and 'mooched' around for a few hours on Saturday, and then a walk in the neighbouring forest on Sunday morning, and then home. A lovely relaxing weekend.

Will definitely go back.

The weather changed and I couldn't resist taking the motor home out, and as Postern Hill isn't too far from home, and the wife was away me and the dog decided to go away for a night.

And I'm glad I did, what a great spot! It is actually in, Savernake Forest we could walk for ever if we wanted to.

The wardens are really friendly and helpful, of you fancy a walk into Marlborough there is a track (muddy though) wouldn't try the road bit dodgy.

Now the downside, there are no toilets or showers at this time of year, and the site is very soft(I needed a tow)but no problem the warden got the tractor and off I went.

Will I go again definitely!

What a lovely little site! Just went for 3 nights and didn't want to leave :) V efficient booking in, we were able to choose our pitch (under some beautiful oak trees. Interesting mix of people too, which is always a bonus. Discreet but very effective staffing/security - well done to all the Yogi Bears!

Thank you again to the nice man who gifted us wine - not a bad trade for a bubble sword! Will definitely be returning here.

This was our 5th visit to Postern Hill. As ever, the site was clean and well-maintained, with friendly and helpful staff.

As other reviewers have mentioned, there are no showers at postern hill, so pack plenty of baby wipes! The toilets are always clean, but there never seems to be any hot water in the wash basins. Oddly however, the hot water in the washing up area behind the toilets always has plenty of piping hot water.

There is plenty for the kids to do in the forest, and Marlborough is a 5 minute drive down the hill. There is also a medium-sized tesco 10 minutes walk (down hill) from the site. The stone circle of Avebury is only 6 miles away and is well worth a visit. We would recommend the Wagon and horses pub for lovely food!

The only slight gripe is that you will need to factor in the cost of new tent pegs every time you visit. The first 2cm of ground is nice and soft followed by what seems to be gravel and concrete! For this trip I invested in some Outwell Halfround U-Pegs at 4. 95 per pack (I had 2 packs). They came out of the ground looking like they had gone 10 rounds with Uri Geller!

Other than that I can't fault the site!

Great family friendly site;

Plenty of space to relax

Fantastic woods to play, cycle, picnic in

Close (20 minute walk in woods and on pavement) to pretty Marlborough for shops & restaurants

Tesco 10 minute walk down hill for your BBQ needs!

Clean & tidy toilets, please note there are no showers - buy a Solar Shower, if nothing else it entertains the other campers!

This is a favourite site of ours to visit with friends & their children, ideal for the week-end.

This is one of my favourite sites for a weekend break as I love the location, just on the edge of Savernake Forest. The pitching area is surrounded by trees so you really feel that you are right in the forest. You can even hire bat detectors from the wardens, although we haven't tried this yet. The site has a very laid-back and relaxed atmosphere.

It is quite a basic site, with no showers and quite a basic toilet block, so I probably wouldn't come here for a long holiday, but it is perfect for a weekend. The wardens are very helpful and friendly and it is only a 20-25 min walk down the hill to Marlborough and its pubs/restaurants. There is also a Tesco about 10 mins walk away (although the campsite feels much further away from civilisation) which is useful for stocking up on barbecue and picnic food.

The site is quite a popular one and it can get a bit crowded at weekends in peak season.
