We spent 10 days on this site and had a fab time. Nice clean facilities and very friendly helpful staff. Our children 2 boys aged 10 and 9 loved the activities and tried them all even hubby had a go on the high ropes. The woodlands were lovely for walks and the kids loved the play trail and the zip wire at the end. Had a ride on the train which was lovely but we preferred the nice walks in the woods. Was impressed with all the recycling bins as most sites just have the one bin, a well equipped laundry on site, £3. 50 to use the machine but it was big so got all the washing in. Unfortunately the local pub has closed but there are others quite close although we didn't visit them. There wasn't masses of room on camp site for children to play ball games but they made do and still played out each evening with other children there. The shop has the basics you need and isn't too overpriced. We did find using the country park during the day could get busy with day trippers but come 4/5pm it quietened down and the kids loved being able to play in the play areas without them being to crowded. Lovely local town of Trowbridge to explore with a good sized shopping centre. Would definitely recommend giving this site a visit.

The shower/toilet block was modern and clean as were the washing up facilities. The woodland walks and play areas for children are very good. Miniature railway takes you to the adventure playground. £1 for return journey. Train driver made it great fun for the kids. Pitch sizes are not over generous. Very secure site. Walks off site were hampered by not having pedestrian access, especially as local pub is only ten minute walk.

Road noise can be distracting as can the night trains.

Overall a good site for families. Kids loved the mud and puddles after the rain so don't forget the wellies.

We arrived on a monday in the middle of a thunderstorm and torrential rain. The roads leading to the site were covered with fast flowing water so we were expecting a rather soggy campsite. The welcome on arrival was helpful and we received an information pack with a map of the park. With cctv and electric gates the site felt safe.

The grass pitches were very wet but we only saw one which was waterlogged, the rest seemed to be well drained. Our pitch was in a little cul-de-sac and because it was quiet we had the whole area to ourselves. The pitches are well marked and of a generous size - more than enough room to pitch our 6 man tent, windbreak, bikes etc and park the car next to it.

There are 2 fabulous play areas for little and bigger children. There is also an adventure trail to an adventure park in the the woods with slides and climbing/ balancing and a zip wire. We didn’t use the picnic or BBQ areas near the lake – they were covered in flies and looked a bit shabby. The kids enjoyed cycling around the park.

The toilets were very clean and well maintained and there was plenty of hot water. There were mops readily available to mop up after your shower.

The site itself is near Longleat, Westbury Whitehorse and Stonehenge so there was plenty to do in the area.

Longleat safari park was our best day ever! We all loved it! It was a fantastic day out for all the family! There is a safari which you can drive around. Longleat had got Steve Batchall (of deadly 60 fame) to record a CD which you listen to on the way around the park – it was full of excellent information and perfect for the kids. We decided to go in to the monkey area and it was fab - luckily our car didn't get too damaged but we did lose all the stickers off our roof box and the monkeys had a good chew at our towbar bike carrier! The kids thought it was hilarious. Once you have done the safari park There are various sections where you can hold animals, watch shows, have a go on the assault course, and the maze.

We paid for the all in one 1 day pass we did it on line which worked out at £91 but you have to do this before midnight the day before you go. It sounds pricey but compared to some of the other places we visited in the area it was well worth the money! We arrived at 10. 30 and got back to the campsite at 6pm!

Stonehenge is worth a visit but they are upgrading the visitor centre so there were only portakabins in a field and it didn’t feel like good value for money. I am sure when the visitor centre opens next year it will be a lot better but I couldn’t help feeling a bit ripped off.

We had a lovely walk around the westbury white horse and there were loads of old earthworks from an ancient iron age hill fort for the kids to scramble around.

I have to agree with a previous review of the area and say that it is a shame that they seem to charge for absolutely everything in Wiltshire. We would have liked to be able to go and look at old ruins have a walk around them for free but here you seem to have to pay to see everything (except for the westbury white horse).

All in all We would definitely recommend this campsite to anyone looking for a great site to base yourself in the area.

We stayed at Brokerswood for 3 nights at the start of June as part of a big family gathering. The campsite offered everything we needed for an amazing and memorable weekend. The pitches were large but on the first night, after heavy rain for the previous week, there was a puddle on ours, but this did not effect us as the car was parked over it. (the rest of the weekend was hot so this cleared up very quickly). The washing facilities were great, although I'm unsure if they would be enough if the site was full. There was a bit of noise at times on the road behind where we were pitched but not enough to put you off. And the nature had woken me up long before traffic did.

The family (including 8 children) had an excellent time using the facilities such as the tree climbing, archery, kayaking and canoeing. The steam train was not running during our visit.

The nature walk was nice despite the mud, and the adventure playground was fun for the kids. My only disappointment was not being allowed to use our mountain bikes through the forest areas.

We didn't leave the site apart from to visit a near by supermarket, but having stayed int he area before I can recommend it as a good base for visiting the popular places in the county.

We stayed at this campsite for 5 nights in June. We loved it and would totally recommend it. It was the first time we had taken our little boy camping and we turned up to find a train play frame right in the middle of the site - my word he was happy! 2 fabulous play areas for little and bigger children as well. There is also an adventure trail to an adventure park in the the woods with slides and climbing/ balancing and a zip wire. (Clearly we all had fun on the zip wire).

The shop wasn't cheap, but don't think I've ever been to a shop on a campsite that was cheap, so when my blow up bed got a hole in it we drove 10 minutes to Tesco and got a new one! The people who worked at the site were lovely. The owner was really helpful and the cleaner was so much fun, my son absolutely adored her. When it got chilly she even turned the heating up for us in the toilets. The toilets were very clean and well maintained. There is also a family bathroom with a power shower, bath, toilet and sink available for £2 for half an hour, which was a blessing for us as my little boy isn't keen on showers. It was equipped with everything for bathing small children, even a step to reach the sink for tooth brushing. In the main ladies toilet there is a low sink, the perfect height for little people.

Alan runs the train and although we were gutted it only ran at the weekend, we understood why, so we made a special effort to go for a ride on it on Saturday. Alan is also the chef in the chippy and makes a mean sausage and chips!

Brick built bbq's overlook the lake too. A butterfly garden, herb garden and a lovely shed full of information of what to do nearby and directions to some of those places. Longleat is about 10 minutes away. It's just lovely.

All in all our stay was brilliant. We would 100% go again and recommend it to others. For all those geocachers out there, there is also a cache very close by!

A quick phone call and it was booked for the 1st june 2013, pitch 48 - very very easy. The post code for the satnav took me straight to the front gates, via 3 great pubs. The Bell, The Full Moon and the Kicking Donkey.

Once there it was easy to check in and find the plot via a very comprehensive site pack. The ladies on the reception friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome straight away.

The site was busy, but that said it felt like there was plenty of room on the 10 metre pitch and it didn't feel crowded at all. Overall there is loads of room to drive, park, pitch and relax !

The toilet / shower area was modern, clean and just the job. Yes it might get busy when full - but either get there first or wait a bit until its empty - there are 5 showers in two blocks for the men and I imagine the same for the ladies -remember your camping and relaxing - not doing the 0755 train dash to work !

As its part of the nearby woodland it makes an ideal family camp. We had great fun taking a walk around the lakes and checking out the activity trails there were laid out. The reception area doubles as a shop and cafe - just the job for a break from cooking.

10/10 and I will be booking again soon for the summer holidays - cant wait !

It was also an absolute pleasure to hear the dawn chorus this morning - you cant buy that anywhere except the middle of nowhere !
