A return visit to this site as I just love the area, the relaxed atmosphere of the site and the great walks direct from the fields.

We wandered down to the Fox and Hounds this time and this is a lovely pub just 1. 5 miles from the site through the fields and although we didn't eat, the food looked lovely and was reasonably priced. The views of the White Horse from the garden are just lovely and we spent a while watching the para gliders jumping from the hill. Be careful on the way back as we came across a huge bull in the last field before the campsite and had to find an alternative route back.

8 per person per night, dogs are free and a bag of logs and kindling was just 5 and it is a good sized bag too. They come round in the evening and you purchase it from them then.

The showers are in a portacabin type hut and work fine, the pressure could be better but to be honest they do the job and are fit for purpose.

Toilets are portaloos in each field and are kept clean, well stocked and perfectly usable. Fresh water taps on each field and a skip for your rubbish.

There is a small tea room by the reception area for bacon butties, cream teas, etc.

A great site and will be back time and time again, and I found it best to book using the enquiry form on here, rather than phoning as they respond much quicker to emails. Booking in was simple and paid on arrival.

I came back again over a weekend to meet with friends as this was a very central location. The price was still 8 for me, the dog and my campervan. They charged 5 per bag of logs, with kindling.

The site was quite busy with groups and families, however it was very quiet in the evening with campfire buzzing and families and friends having fun.

Toilets and showers were always clean and well stocked, despite the field being pretty full.

We sampled the tea rooms and the bacon butty was ok for 3. 50, however my friend said the cream tea was not the best, due to not using real clotted cream, and no sultanas in the scone.

Great for walking and this time we walked to The White Horse pub in Woolstone, after taking in Waylands Smithy, this was a nice pub, quite pricey, but a great selection of drinks and they serve food, but had stopped by the time we got there.

This is proper camping, pitch where you like, get together with friends and chill, I will be back time and time again.

It's been a few ears since I was last here, however nothing has changed and is still as awesome as it always has been.

I enquiried on email and received a swift reposnse with details on what to do on arrival. We drove straight on to the field and phoned the mobile number given as we arrived out of office hours and a cha in his car was over to us shortly after to take our 8 per adult fee and 5 for a bag of logs and kindling.

Fires must be in the pre-dug fire pits and we pitched the camper vans either side of the pit.

The showers are basic in a portacabin, however they were warm, clean and perfectly useable, although the water pressure was a little low. The toilets are portals on the fields and there were clean, well stocked and did the job. There is fresh water on each field.

The Fox and Hounds in Uffington is about 1. 5 miles walk away and serves a great selection of drinks and although we did not eat there, the menu looked early good.

There are footpaths aplenty from the site and we walked straight form the site to the Ridgeway and shortly after was at the famous White Horse. We then continued along the Ridgeway to Waylands Smithy.

This is a peaceful site and I would most definitely recommend this to anyone and will certainly be back time and time again as I love the are and the site.

We stayed 2 nights with our 2 boys aged 7 and 4 plus our friend and her daughter aged 6. There were lots of kids in the campsite all playing on the open spaces and hills, with balls and water and chase, great fun. Other campers were very friendly. Enjoyed having a fire too.

We were too hot and we didn't have much shade where we camped, we were also on a slope but we chose it and were fine with that, we also had the most open and beautiful views.

The area was great for us, country walking and the kids loved the chalk horse and dragons hill with blood stains. They talked about it for ages.

A bit of a walk to showers but passes little farm animals on the way, all charming. The owners were very helpful and friendly.

Showers were mixed, one fine, others the temperature oscillated from freezing to too hot.

I would recommend this site.

Likes:

We phoned ahead on the day and rocked up in the evening as backpackers from the Ridgeway. Chose the largest, least densely populated field (the others were PACKED!). Hard to find a truly level spot but managed to. Bought some wood for a fire and all was good. However, as per many other reviews of this site on the net, we also found the clientele to be somewhat lacking with some pretty rough groups and late night partying, music, drunk singing matches etc. Don't know if it's the location that attracts them, or the way the site it managed but that many mentions of it on reviews spanning many years clearly indicates a pattern. So be warned.

Dislikes:

-Nice location near White Horse hill

-Open fields, pitch where you like

-Campfires allowed

Dislikes:

-Rough punters up all night drinking and shouting

-Site rules not enforced by management and no way of contacting them at night

-5 min walk along road with no pavement for a shower, wash or rubbish disposal if in big field

-Portaloo numbers not adequate for number of campers

-Management appear a bit 'jaded' but probably sick of dealing with the rough punters!

We stayed here a few years ago and as we were in the area and needed somewhere to stay so we decided to pitch up here again. We couldn't see any signs at any of the fields about instructions on where/how to book in and remembered that last time we were here they came round to collect site fees and sell fire wood in the evenings so weren't worried. About half an hour later the owner came in his car and wasn't happy that we 'hadn't booked in ahead' They don't seem to recognise that tourers actually tour and sometimes/mainly stop places adhoc - on tour! We paid our expensive 14 with smiles however. The porta loos weren't very clean (some quite horrid!) - they may have been busy over the weekend but no-one came to clean them in the morning either. The main facilities down the main road by the farm are basic but clean enough. I do think 14 for porta loos and a water tap and basic facilities a good walk down the main road is a bit steep considering you can get sites with similar facilities for about 10 and sites with far superior facilities for the same price (also in the Cool Camping book which might be why they feel they can charge more). That said the views are beautiful and apart from the road is very peaceful and a great walk to the White Horse nearby. A lot of the field is on a slope but plenty of room to negotiate a levelish bit. I realise the fields are quite spread out and maybe a pain for the owners to check them regularly hence why they get upset when people like us just pitch up, but hey, that's their business! It is situated in a lovely part of the country though.
