I have visited Midbrooks many times over the past four years and it continues to be both my and my children's favourite campsite.

Alan and Sue are wonderful hosts and their greeting is warm whatever the weather.

The pitches, although varying in size, are all very generous and well maintained.

A few highlights.

1) Animal feeding times (9am and 6pm daily) to delight the children

2) Sue's cream tea is a delicious treat

3) The walk (or bike ride) to the village with it's volunteer run shop and pub (great food and a fab beer garden)

4) The complete freedom it offers children - the site is incredibly safe for my 7 and 9 year old and very family friendly

5) Simplicity at it's best (we are not talking fancy shower blocks but everything is wonderfully clean) plus with little luxuries such as a shared fridge, microwave, phone charging point and hairdryer

6) Being able to have a campfire (braziers are provided but the wood must be bought from the owners at a reasonable price)

7) Kids bikes available to rent for just a few pounds - they love whizzing around the site on them!

I could go on but it has to be visited to really appreciate the magic of the place. Just don't tell too many people!

Just back from yet another amazing weekend at Alan and Sue's fantastic family campsite. We have been going at least twice a year for the last four years having totally fallen for this charming site, lovely family feel and brilliant owners.

Like others say it's situated down a long country lane so is extremely safe. The children get to feed the animals with Alan at 9am and 6pm each day - getting the chance to hold a baby chick or feed a lamb depending on the time of the year.

There are also bikes for hire for the children to cycle round the site. Alan boasts about how many children have learnt to ride at his site - my son is one of them.

For the parents the site is small enough that you can relax at your tent knowing the children are safe exploring and making friends and you get to sit around a campfire at night - relaxing while the kids sleep, exhausted from a brilliant day.

We live about an hour from this site so it's perfect for a weekend away. We have introduced lots of people to it - all of whom love its charm, simplicity and simply wonderful owners.

If you haven't visited yet and are looking for a site especially suitable for children from toddler age plus don't hesitate to make a booking. My only worry about this site is the day that my children decide they are too old for it because that will be the end of a beautiful era.

We have just spent 4 nights here and have to say it is the best site we have stayed at.

The pitches are well laid out, the toilets and showers were cleaned regularly, there was a microwave, hairdryer and phone charging points.

The site is well looked after and the surrounding area is beautiful.

The best part for the children(and me) had to be feeding and holding the animals every day at 9am and 6pm.

The only thing we were concerned about was the long track

Into the site as it is very narrow and bumpy but there are passing points.

We will certainly be returning.

Well, we have just returned from a fantastic night at Midbrooks! The campsite is certainly one of the best we have stayed at. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere here, quiet rural and brilliant facilities. The toilet and shower are sooo cool! They look like tatty garden sheds from the outside but inside they are beautifully tilled, modern and very clean. There's also an outside washing up area which is also very clean and useful. The owners are really welcoming, friendly and helpful. The children are able help feed the animals ( pigs, lambs, chickens and rabbits) and they can hire a bike for the day which my boys absolutely loved! The site is very child friendly and safe. All the campers there were great and were enjoying their break. We had a great pitch at the back tucked away nice and private. The campfire is a must for us and you can purchase your wood from the owners for just £6 a bag which lasts about 5 hours.

The only criticism I have is that the lower pitches are quite muddy in the rain and close together and I wouldn't stay for more than two nights as the children might get bored as there's no park, but if your planning on going off site for activities then this will NOT be a problem. There's loads to do and see in the area and the supermarket is 10 mins away in Trowbridge which is really handy.

We will definitely return and look forward to it ��

Yet another fantastic stay! Already planning are return visit in August. The showers and toilets have had a mini make over. The site was looking fabulous. They had just taken delivery of some baby pigs/ an older pig/ ducks & chickens/ 2 x new born baby lambs. Awaiting baby rabbits and hopefully some baby chicks. Please keep up the good work and don't retire just yet!

Have just had the most wonderful weekend at this campsite – perfect escape for families. This site is tucked away in a rural location away from any main roads.

There are only a small number of pitches (20 or so?) and in the middle area of the camping ground there was enough space for children to run about within view of the tents, it felt safe, and children quickly made friends. Many bought their own bikes to ride about on but bikes and scooters could be hired.

A real highlight for everyone was when the owner Alan does his morning and evening round of animal feeding where children get to help out. There are sheep, pigs, chickens, rabbits, hens in enclosures about the site. The children particularly loved holding the baby rabbits.

There are a couple of showers and loos in sheds, and although quite basic they were kept clean. There is a washing up sink and a couple of fridge freezers. A couple of pitches have EHU (at extra charge). Being a small campsite none of the pitches are a long walk from the facilities or water taps.

The site was peaceful at night with a few families just chilling out around braziers hired from the site owners. On the second night there was some harvesting going on in a field nearby but it stopped around 10ish so didn’t really affect us too much.

Steeple Ashton village is lovely to walk about, with a nice church and useful village shop which also serves coffee and cake.

Further afield is Longleat, Bath, Stonehenge, Avebury etc. Lots of possibilities for those wanting to explore.

Although this site is quite local to us we really felt like we had got away from it all and had a lovely time – we plan to return again next season and then we may treat ourselves to the fresh cream teas served daily by Sue and Alan which I understand are very good.
