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.

Back again for at least our 6th visit. We all love this place so much, my boys (aged 8 and 6) just love feeding the animals and they go and check on them each night before going to bed, to say goodnight to them!

The owners are such good hosts, so friendly and welcoming and they are great with the children. Each time we come along we bring someone else new. They all have then become converts as they too fall in love with it.

Only campsite we have stayed at that has toilets/showers in a shed but that is part of the unique charm!

This is the only site we have been to that lets you have camp fires as well - nothing beats toasting marshmallows round a camp fire.

The convenience of being on a small site, having a fridge and the kids being able to hire bikes is great.

The owner proudly told me about how many children have actually learnt to ride a bike at his site - a really valuable skill and he was clearly so proud that he had been of help in them achieving that.

We will definitely be returning again (and again and again!)

A little bit of heaven on earth :)

What a beautiful gem of a campsite.

We stayed at Midbrooks for 3 nights, to enable us to spend two days visiting Longleat.

Sue and Alan are wonderful, friendly hosts and our children really loved helping them feed the array of animals each morning and evening.

The site is really pretty and all grass.

I think there are about 18 pitches in total.

The large pitches are grouped into crescents. The grass in between the pitches is left long which offers some privacy.

The pitches are level but the site is slightly hilly which I think makes it more attractive and interesting.

We hired a bike at the site for our 4 year old son to ride around on and he loved cycling down the slopes

There are hand painted signs telling you where everything is.

The facilities are quite basic with two showers and two toilets for the whole site, but they were always clean and we never had to queue for long. With no hook up it was very useful having fridges to use and there is a nice washing up area. There is also a place to recharge batteries.

The first night we were there we had the whole site to ourselves. By the third night the site was nearly full but had a lovely atmosphere with children making friends and playing together and parents chatting around the fires.

Sue and Alan would walk around the site a few times a day to make sure everyone and everything was OK.

The site is perfect for young families (our children are 2 and 4 years). The animal feeding, bike hire and fires were a real bonus. Its very safe with no roads near by.

Sue and Alan recommended a pub for dinner on our last night which was on the way back from Longleat and had a play area for childen.

Can't wait to go back to lovely Midbrooks!
