Lovely, friendly site. The wardens were cheerful and helpful. The other campers were all very cheery and sociable. Toilet block very clean. Showers were the push type and there were vanity units and toilets.

There is a playing field just outside the entrance for dog walking. It really is perfect for walking into Salisbury. It's a traffic free cycle/walking path all the way into Salisbury. I reckon it took us 30-40 minutes. Salisbury itself is lovely and the cathedral is stunning. Guess what you are allowed to take well behaved dogs into the cathedral!

Turn left out of the campsite and a ten minute walk brings you to the Old Sarum, which was the original site of Salisbury. Then William the Conquerer built a castle on the site. The views are lovely and you can take dogs in. (Unlike Stonehenge!).

We were in a motor home so it was perfect for getting about without a car.

Will definitely return.

Very well placed site for visiting Salisbury. Easy walk into town (20/30 mins) off the roads which was good and passes Waitrose (useful if you have a card!). The city itself was lovely too.

The setting for the site is great - just under Old Sarum castle - with very open views. Essentially it is two large fields so nothing special. Toilet facilities not the most modern but immaculately kept. The on site staff were excellent - could not have been more helpful and obliging.

This is about the forth time we have visited and as always the site is well kept and well run. There's always plenty of staff around who seem to be full of busy keeping the site clean and well maintained. Well positioned for a walk into Salisbury, a trip to the gardens at Heale House, Stonehenge or a walk around the Old Sarum.

To Find Site:- From Salisbury Ring Road take A345 towards Amesbury. Crossing two mini roundabouts grouped together watch out for sign to left to campsite in about a couple of hundred yards. Continue on site access road, with playing fields on right to campsite. The site gate is kept closed (but not locked) probably to deter non campers accessing the site. At busy times there is usually a member of staff on hand to open the gate otherwise itís a DIY job! Pull forward to sign before going to reception.

Salisbury C&CC site is set in a semi urban environment but also has lovely views out over the surrounding countryside including the Old Sarum Hill Fort. It is open to members and non-members. We received a friendly welcome from the site staff. You are escorted to your pitch once your own preferences have been taken into account. The site has a two way slope from the reception down to the far end of the site although individual pitches are not too bad but will require a degree of levelling. Most of the 150 pitches are on grass although there are some which have an embedded plastic lattice set into grass to provide a more all-weather surface. There are limited tarmac site roads and pitches are arranged in rows across the grass and whilst the reality is there is plenty of room between pitches you can feel there is a lack of privacy with people walking through the units quite close to where you are sitting. Being a C&CC site not all pitches will have electricity but most do and they are rated at 16 amps and uses CEE17 blue connectors. Several fresh water and grey water points are placed at convenient places across the site.

The well designed motorhome drain point is near to reception, fresh water can be replenished from the adjacent service point. Chemical waste emptying points are at the main toilet block and behind reception. The site has two toilet blocks, the main one being situated about half way down the site. It is of an excellent quality. At the end of the block is a laundry room which also houses local information. The smaller block nearer to reception is only open at very busy periods although the dish wash area is open all the time. Reception sells a range of essentials like milk. Site wide WiFi is available and time can be purchased at reception or online. Its good value but you have to be aware that download limits apply. There are no childrenís play facilities on site although older children have plenty of room in the adjacent park for ball games. There is a little light aircraft noise at certain times of day.

The main advantage of this site is the close vicinity to the City of Salisbury and as a result is quite popular with our Continental chums. The site will provide instructions for a pleasant walk into the city along the river. Alternatively there is a good bus service from the main road at the site entrance. Old Sarum, is within easy walking of the site and is under the control of English Heritage. For eating out there is a Harvester just up the road from the site. In Salisbury there is a multitude of eating places, we used the Market Inn which was very nice. For shopping there is a large Waitrose Food and Home which you pass on the walk mentioned above. In the centre there is a Sainsburys and a Tesco Metro

Reviewer: OliverDay 22 reviews from this member

We arrived on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend. The staff were very helpful and welcoming, explaining the facilities and other items. Most other campers were in caravans or motorhomes with a couple of trailer tents and some tents.

The site is perfect for visiting Salisbury and the surrounding area. It is a 30 min walk or a short cycle into town along a cycle path which runs bear to the site.

The campsite is on a slope, near to the start of the slope up to Old Sarum. There is a great view of Old Sarum to the North but otherwise the site is a bit uninspiring, laid out in a simple grid system with no natural curves or shelter, other than the sloping pitches.

We were well placed near to the reception building, were the site is at its flattest. You will need to prepare for a sloping pitch as even most of the hard standings have a slope!

The shower blocks were very clean, as expected from the C&CC. However we were disappointed that the nearest block was shut for the duration of the bank holiday as the site was busy enough for them both to be open.

The site doesn't really have anything for younger children. Older children can leave the site and play on the rugby pitches on Hudson Field next to the site.

There is a small shop selling essentials and WiFi is available at £2 per day. A large Waitrose about 15 mins walk towards the town. This also includes a good selection of John Lewis items if you have forgotten to pack something.

During our stay the site was quiet during the night and apart from the flood light near reception the site is fairly dark.

My only suggestion would be for the C&CC to do some landscaping to improve the level of the pitches and the aesthetics of the site.
