Have just returned from a short break at Stonehenge Campsite (using it as a base to explore the area). Wow what a great little site. Their mission statement is 9/10 and I am sure by next year it will be 10/10 !
It is very clean and well kept, have stayed on clean sites before but this takes it to the next level. The wardens are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble - can't remember a more happy greeting. With a campers kitchen available and tea/coffee to boot as well as full washing machine and tumble dryer facilities, it has been well thought through. And such a great touch of being able to have a real campfire! Would highly recommend this site and look forward to returning again at the end of Sept.
Amazing keep up the great work. John and Sara Hazell
Stayed for 2 nights 15/16th August. Had phoned previous day to check if there was availabilty for 2 tents, four adults, one child plus a dog and spoke with Lianne who apart from being very courteous and helpul, explained a few things and confirmed that would be ok.
We arrived around 10. 30, way before the normal pitch up time of 1 ish but that was not a problem. Once you have crawled through the traffic from either direction on the A303, this site os SO easy to find. The wardens despite being busy took a few minutes out to make sure we knew where things were, where we could pich and so on.
Due to the owners/wardens careful thought and consideration, this site not only looked good but felt calm and very well organised right from the start, a feeling that stayed the same throughout our short stay. Not only can you help yourself to complimentary tea/coffee but there was a basket of free range eggs from a local farm for 20p each (honesty box) and something to cook them in and on, what a nice touch!
We chose to walk to Stonehenge which took around one and a half hours and were greeted by a burly security guard who informed us that in order to enter we would have to walk another mile and a half to the visitors centre where we could pay the extortionate £14. 90 each as there were no ticket facilities at the entrance to the site. We were not the only ones facing this predicament and decided to head back, nice one British Heritage.
We ate at the Bell friday night, nice beer and good pub grub.
We spent Saturday at Avebury, £7 to park for the day (which makes the entrance fee to Stonehenge look even worse. ) and thoroughly enjoyed the full walk around the Stones etc. The Red Lion was very busy but a great place to sit outside with a beer and rest our legs.
Ate at the Pelican Inn Saturday night and cannot rate it highly enough, quality food and some tempting specials on offer.
The loo/shower facilities are new for this year and are closed between 11 and 1 for cleaning. Yes, at peak times they get real busy so be prepared to queue but just remember they are free to use and for what you pay per pitch here, you really can't complain.
Would recommend to any campers out there, especially those like us with a dog, apart from growling at that Security Guard, he loved it too!
This was our first site in our new motorhome. It is a small site, but ideal for us as novices. We had our own designated hard standing with grass area surrounded by its own hedge giving privacy and picnic bench. The resident wardens were helpful and friendly. Toilet and shower blocks very clean. Camping/cooking facilities good. Very quiet at night. Lovely walk along the brook to the local pub. We walked to Stonehenge. Good 5 miles, make sure you have a map! We will certainly go back there and would recommend it.
This camp site is situated just off the main road it is quiet and very quaint, there is two footpaths one leading to the village pub and the other to the pub on the main road. We have never been to a camp site that has been so clean not to put other sites down but this is exceptional, there is a campers kitchen fitted with cooker, microwave fridge and laundry facilities, Stonehenge is only a 5 minute drive away, Just make sure you have cash as they don't deal with plastic
We arrived on Friday afternoon for the summer solstice, the site was easy to find, the wardens were attentive, helpful, friendly and very informative, we had the choice of 2 fields to pitch our tent, one was the party field and the other a family field, we chose the latter, we were given the choice to camp anywhere in field as long as your neighbours had adequate room, once the tent was erected and unpacked the car we had to move the car to another field/car park. The site had a block which housed the toilets, showers (£2) information board/office, kitchen (did not use). There was additional solar showers and portable loos (these were cleaned daily), there was also a bar in a barn with TV, music, bands and fairy lights, the site also had a food/BBQ stand and a pizza retailer, did not go off site except on the free bus for the solstice, (so cannot comment about the area), would return to the camp site again to explore the local area, pubs, walks, footpaths.
Now the site has new wardens and a recently refurbished Men's Shower Block as well as a new Ladies Shower Block. It really is an ideal site from which to explore Wiltshire. The new wardens are very proud of the site and intend to improve it further. All staff are very friendly and helpful and keep the facilities spotlessly clean. The utility area has everything the camper might need and a washing machine and tumble dryer are on order. If you have been before please revisit again and you will see the improvements that have taken place. A short walk away in Berwick St James is a farm shop that serves teas, coffees and home made cakes as well as other goods, and have a friendly chat with Maralynn the owner. First class meals can be had at nearby pub 'The Bell'. The site owner has landscaped the site very tastefully and has given a lot of thought to the habitat of local wildlife. So please do visit this site you will not be disappointed. We would not hesitate to recommend this site.
