 Great location with a short walk to Malmesbury and lovely walks in the area.

We had a view of the Abbey and there are great facilities with everything we needed.

The owner is lovely and it was our second stay,

I highly recommend this place if you like small quiet beautiful spots.

 A very rural site which was a bit breezy at times. Better signage is needed. We had trouble with the postcodes given. Helpful owner.

A a pleasant 20 minute stroll across the fields into town.

Clean toilets, kitchen and showers. No wifi. A good overnight stop.

 Excellent site and very helpful owners. First class +++++. Our children loved staying on a working farm. Excellent toilet block with all you need. Just remember you need to dispose of your own rubbish. Very good to see you can only use chemicals that are green/non formaldehyde.

Reviewer: KewGardener 12 reviews from this member

 This is a lovely small campsite set in a flat grassy field with 4 shepherd huts which the tents pitch between. Everyone shares the glorious views over the open countryside across to the abbey at Malmesbury. On a breezy day the wind can be quite gusty because of the elevated position (hence the great view), I was glad of my extra emergency guylines! The prevailing wind is from the front, so no protection from the hedgerow behind.

For such a small site the facilities are very good. Clean shower and toilets, and a small kitchen with kettle, microwave, washing up sink, fridge, freezer and plug points. The rates were very reasonable, just 16 per night (without hookup).

It's a ten minute walk across the fields into Malmesbury which is a pretty town with shops, pubs, cafes and pubs. There is pleasant walking directly from the site along the river and surrounding meadows.

I would recommend this site for couples and quiet families with young children. I look forward to returning.

 Whychurch Farm in Malmesbury is an excellent choice for camping in Wiltshire. It is very convenient for the cafes, pubs & restaurants, just a short walk away in the town centre, and its an excellent base for the wider area. There's a great choice of facilities on offer, from traditional B&B to 19th century Shepherd's Hut and several cozy wagons on trailers. Or just plain old camping in your own tent. This is a working farm: you fall asleep to the sound of cows telling each other scary midnight stories and awake to the sound of cows making their breakfast.

Caroline runs a tight ship, the facilities are clean, and on the 4 or 5 occasions I have stayed on Whychurch Farm there has always been toilet paper in the loos. Even when the site is very busy! The constant supply of toilet rolls is such a joy!

The site is well maintained, the access is flat and easy. But best of all is Caroline's cheerful personality, as she cycles around the field every morning. Her father runs the farm, and in 2014 he went way beyond the call-of-duty to help me jump-start my car from his tractor. After I thanked him, he simply said: 'Its all part of the service. '

This is a small and friendly campsite, but Caroline has great ambitions for it, and I sense we shall find further changes when we return in 2017. What I like is her respect for people's space, so she is strict about the numbers admitted at popular times of the year. Once the site is full, she will turn people away, which ensures a good relaxed atmosphere on the site. In 2016 for the first time, she asked drivers to park cars off the field, on a hard-standing next to the washing facilities. It was surprising how this small detail improved the whole visual experience - a field with no cars on it!

This review is based on several stays at Whychurch Farm, and I am looking forward to staying again in 2017. What's not to like!

 This is a lovely little site. We booked the whole site for a family reunion weekend. The great thing is, there is a variety of accommodation available and the owners are so friendly. It felt very 'safe' for the children although we brought our own entertainment for them.

We loved the Wagons and Shepherd's Hut. It was fantastic to have use of the kitchen facilities, although you do need to rent the Shepherd's Hut for this to be so, I think.

The other facilities were fine, although one loo was a bit challenging - it was really classed as the farm workers' loo.

You have easy access to Malmesbury and there is a Waitrose just a few minutes' drive away. It has good access to the M4 and the A429 making it a great central location. We loved the view and we weren't bothered by any road noise at all.

 We've stayed at this site a few times before and it's always been fabulous. The facilities are really well looked after. We've stayed as part of a group and always found the two toilets have been more than adequate for a full site.

The farm has recently opened a vintage shop selling household items and stuff for the garden. Well worth a look if you like something unusual.

The ground is flat and never been a problem getting pegs in. There's pleasant views across the field towards the town with the abbey on the horizon. There are some lovely walks along the nearby river and around the town itself.

We love the fact we can use an off the ground fire pit. You can't beat a camp fire.

The owners are very friendly and always welcoming.

 The perfect campsite for a visit to Malmesbury! Very small, lovely triangular paddock with beautifully mown and squashy grass, campers are one-deep backing onto the hedge, so all have a superb view of the Abbey. This is reached by a leisurely stroll across the one field adjoining the campground and takes no more than 6 or 7 minutes to arrive at the Abbey!

The facilities at the campground are well maintained and very nice and clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Don't miss a stroll around the farm which is very old and interesting. Our first visit to Malmesbury and we loved it, an absolute gem of a place, wonderfully interesting and beautiful, with loads of walks to soak it all up. The Abbey is a highlight of course but also lots of places to eat and some great pubs, we recommend 'the smoking dog' and 'the whole hog'. The campground is lovely and peaceful to sleep it off and wake up in such a lovely part of our wonderful England.

 We spent a pleasant two nights here in late September - since we were there off-season it was very quiet. The owner was very welcoming and friendly, the facilities were clean and tidy and the view of Malmesbury from the campsite was a bonus. The fees for a family of 5 are a little steep considering showers are an extra 1 (the most expensive shower I've ever had on a campsite) but if we were just a couple it wouldn't be so bad.

We made use of the Co-op in town for food essentials and spent the day at Westonbirt Arboretum which I would definitely recommend. It looks like the town is within walking distance but the weather was against us trying it this visit.

I would be happy to return to this campsite.

 Just spent two nights at this site and really loved it. The field is small and pretty, with the shepherds hut and bell tent in the corner. These are really charming and I would love to stay in either. The views from the pitches are fabulous, with Malmesbury Abbey especially lovely when lit up at night. The facilities are just right and even though there were 4 other units on the first night we always seemed to have them to ourselves. The owners are friendly and we will definitely be adding this to our list of sites to return to.
