This site is situated 7 miles outside of Salisbury in a village called Coombe Bissett. On following the 'Brown' information signs from the main road, you turn off onto an unsurfaced road and drive past some properties. On reaching the camp site You report to reception. The couple that own this site are very friendly. You receive a gate key, as the gate is locked at all times. The Camping & Caravan Club rules apply.

The field is very level and well kept. The pitches are big. You have good views of the country side.

There are plenty of drinking water points, a couple of fire points.

You are guided to your pitch.

The site does not have a children's play area, but our Grandkids made the most of it playing with other children.

There is no shop on site, although there is a store a couple of miles down the road.

The toilet block has two female WC's and a shower, two mens WC's & a shower. 3 wash basins. Soap dispensers. The hot water is free and plenty of it. There is an indoor dishwashing room.

The electric hook up was good it did not trip out at all.

All in all a gem of a site. It is very peaceful. You do not suffer from road noise here.

It is a great base for exploring the Salisbury area.

Highly recommended.

Really lovely site. We only used as stop-over but the views were stunning, the site immaculate and the owners great (even though our arrival interrupted their sunday lunch) We didn't venture out but believe there to be some beautiful walks nearby and it would be good for dogs. Would certainly visit again if we were in the area.

Well laid out site off the beaten track. Peaceful with wonderful views all around.

Site well kept with all facilities you need.

Came here with friends and had a great weekend barbecuing and chilling out followed by a Sunday lunchtime walk to the village pub at Combe Bisset. A nice easy stroll down for a couple of miles but a bit more strenuous coming back Well worth the effort though.

We came across Summerlands after searching for sites in and around the Salisbury area, and we were so glad we found it, we were greeted on arrival and shown to our pitch which was more than adequate for our 5m bell tent and we had also requested an electric hook up as well and this was no problem either. The family who run the site where very nice and welcoming, the facilities were cleaned daily and there was free hot water, the setting was picturesque with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The nearest shops were about 2 miles /5 mins away which was well stocked, Salisbury is only 20 mins drive and access to other attractions within 30 to 40 mins drive, i. E. Stonehenge, old Sarum. The site is also secure with a locked gate to get in and out with a key supplied for use. We enjoyed it so much we have booked for a two week break next year.

We planned to stay for two nights. Our 2 children aged 10 and 11 enjoyed the wide space playing cricket. We only stayed 1 night as the rain never stopped and we awoke to wet sleeping bags, air beds and anything that was in the tent. I would like to come back when the weather is better.

The shower and toilets were spotlessly clean in the men's and ladies. The wash room also looked very clean. It was very quiet with beautiful views over the countryside.

The site is very secure as you have to keep locking a gate to get in and out of the site. We had a 2 man and a 4 man tent, which we had plenty of room on one pitch. As we left early the owner said we only had to pay for 1 day which was extremely nice of him.

The only downside for our brief visit was the un named road to the site was full of potholes and not a good road to drive on.

I would recommend you stay here as ideal to visit Stonehenge and Old Sarum.

This site is located 0. 6 miles along a somewhat bumpy loose stone track in quiet open countryside. Upon arrival, visitors are issued with a set of rules and a key to an access gate which must be kept locked at all times. The owner then takes you to your pitch and instructs you how to set up. The facilities block has 2 toilets and 1 shower for each gender, and seemed to cope albeit with some queueing when the site was full. Hot water was always abundant.

The site is laid out over a grassy field but other than numbered slabs and the hook-up points, the individual pitches are not clearly defined. Part of the field is used for caravan storage, which would have benefitted from some screening.

We were shown where to pitch some 10 metres away from our hook-up point and guessed that the land in between represented our pitch, but we were never quite sure about this. As a consequence of this open plan nature, everybody is required to walk through other pitches in order to access the facilities, which can feel uncomfortable. Another consequence is that children can play amongst other units, and the overall outcome of these factors is diminished privacy.

As long-standing former campers we always research intended sites to ensure segregation between caravans and tents. This has nothing to do with snobbishness, but experience tells us that campers tend to be quieter when camped amongst the audible reference point of fellow campers, and that the opposite can prove the case when they are camped amongst quieter caravans.

Before booking at Summerlands we confirmed such segregation via the plan on the site's website; hence we rather surprised to find that the owner consistently placed tents amongst the caravans throughout our stay. This resulted in a rather noisy stay for us, with one neighbouring large group of campers chatting until after midnight and another young family rising before 6. 00 a. M. And playing ball alongside us by 6. 15 a. M.

Whilst the owner cannot be held accountable of individual actions of his visitors we do feel that better definition of pitches and segregation of units could vastly improve this site.
