Didn't hear the lions roar at night but we did hear the wolves howl.

This is the second time that we have taken our grandchildren and we all enjoyed the stay.

The wardens look after the site very well and are friendly and helpful. The bonus was that our stay coincided with the Longleat fireworks.

We will return.

This site is in a brilliant location not just for the Safari Park but other places around eg Stonehenge. My granddaughter loved the playground, the playroom & the park itself. The facilities are spotless & the wardens very friendly. What I was surprised about was they didn't walk around at least once a day which meant that one or two caravanners allowed their dogs to roam. The other surprise was the site shop sold bubbles which we all know if they hit the awning take the proofing off.

Apart from those niggles this is a good site.

We have visited this campsite before and have been impressed with the location and facilities.

We arrived late afternoon and the wardens were very helpful. They explained that there were no allocated pitches and we were to drive around to locate a pitch we liked. They were really helpful in explaining which pitches had the most shade all day. We were lucky enough to get one of the last pitches that they suggested.

The park was around 2/3 full but still wasn't crowded or noisy.

They have now added a few tent pitches to the middle grass which is both a positive and a negative as it was a large playing field but this is restricted when the tents are in place.

The site has a family room which has a TV, pool table and table tennis. You can purchase a ping pong ball from reception for 50p. My son enjoyed playing this.

The toilets and showers were clean and tidy there was a wait in the morning as one of the showers were broken so it was down to 3 showers only. There were individual washing areas too which I liked as you could strip wash in privacy without needing a shower.

The wardens were on site and came round the site to check regularly but not to any annoyance.

There is a small park for the kids to play in and the site seems very safe for the children to play.

I will be staying here again to use the site to visit Longleat.

It is a shame that now you are no longer allowed to walk through Longleat during the evenings like you use to be able to do.

Quite a nice Caravan Club site - and up to their usual standards - but the directions on this (UK Campsite) website on how to get there are no longer accurate. I gather that access via the Longleat Estate was stopped a little while ago, so you need to follow the instructions on the Caravan Club website and scroll down and then click on the Ďmapí tab (just above where the table of prices begins) it not only shows you a helpful map but also detailed instructions on how to get there from the A362 at Lane End. In short, follow your sat nav to the White Hart (Postcode BA12 7PH) then follow the brown tourist signs in a southerly direction to the campsite.

This is our 2nd time to Longleat with about a 3 year gap. The site is run really well, with lovely clean facilities - shame that all campers don't treat the facilities with respect and leave toilet paper and sanitary products on the floor. Nice, hot, free running showers. Washing up was excellent, as is the first place I've been where the water is hot enough to wear gloves. Friendly wardens and a little shop with all the basics.

The play park is far too small for the site, but my kids enjoyed riding round the site on their bikes. Lots of kids learning to ride without stabilisers, including our 4 year old, who didn't want to leave.

Proximity to Longleat is amazing, meaning we could walk back for lunch and enjoy it in comfort. Shame you can no longer wander into Longleat without a day ticket. We used Tesco vouchers for Day 1 and then extended our tickets for £10 each - meaning we spent 2 days in the park for £40 cash for 4 of us and take it really easy.

Shopping - there's a large Asda in Frome just a few minutes drive, plus Lidl and a Poundland which was great for a few essential pieces of tat, such a a badminton set, frisbee and washing up brushes.

We also managed days out to Street (Clarks designer outlet village) about and hour away and Weston Super Mare, which was probably a bit too far away. Lots of info in their little tourist info room about days out, local walks, eateries etc.

One little tip - avoid the area towards the play park, as there are Emus in the field behind the hedge. They woke us up about 5am every morning, with a drumming sound, that they make in their chests, which sounds like someone playing the Bongos!

This was our second visit to Longleat with a 7 year gap.

You must take care on the first bit from the White Hart down to the site. We met a 4x4 just after we turned in and needed to back up. I would respectfully suggest slow and easy for that bit.

Easy run in to reception where a lovely warden made it nice and easy to book in and helped us pick a pitch to suit us.

This is quite a big site, about 165 spaces. There is a dog walk and a children's playground. Also I believe a playroom. I believe all pitches are hardstanding with ehu.

If you go at the right time you are met with a beautiful profusion of begonias courtesy of the warden. There also seemed to be and extraordinary number of trees which was nice.

This is a C. C. Site so no surprises. Nice clean, tidy and well run site. Lavatories and showers kept nice and clean but like all C. C. Showers the cubicles are too small.

Last time we were there we could walk in the grounds up to the house but Longleat no longer allow this. There is a barrier and manned ticket booth where we used to walk. This has nothing to do with the Caravan Club. They have no choice in the matter.

The reception sell a few things, including newspapers, but for other shopping you will need to go to either Frome or Warminster for Asda or Waitrosse.

Because of the peculiar location there doesn't seem to be a lot you can do direct from the site. I imagine most people who go here go to visit Longleat attractions. I believe it may be advantageous to visit the C. C. And Longleat websites prior to going as I believe you can get preferential deals if you do so before you leave home. These might no be available if you try on the day.

However Stourhead is a place you must visit. The gardens are superb.

More than this I don't think I can help you. We only went for three days purely to visit Stourhead.

Worth mentioning however is that at night you can hear the lions and sea-lions quite close. Quite a thing.

We have just returned after the August bank holiday, great site very clean and tidy, friendly staff and a great place to take young children, ours 2 & 4 loved it. With the added benefit of being in the safari estate grounds and about 50yard walk to the safari park itself was great. We had a two day pass to the park and you can leave and enter as frequently as you like just have your day pass checked by the person in the little shed at the back entrance. We heard the sea lions barking and other animals at night and in the early hours barking, which just added to the excitement of the visit. The only downside was the fish and chip van that visits the site on a Friday, the battered fish was small and thin which made it over cooked and was sadly more batter than fish.

This was our first time of staying in a caravan club campsite. It was myself and husband (age 45) and our two daughters (aged 14 and 16). The directions there were great and when we rang to say we would be late, the staff were so friendly and helpful. The pitches felt very private and we were surrounded by trees with the sound of Longleat's lions and sealions making lots of noises, which we thought was great. The campsite was immaculate. We will be visiting again soon.

We stayed there over the easter weekend. The site was very clean and extremely well maintained. The staff were very helpful. The shop was well stocked the basics. The toilet blocks were fresh and modern and also well maintained. The play area was suitable for younger children. All in all a great site and we shall definitely be going back there again

To Find Site:-Leave A36 onto the A362 towards Frome. At Lane End turn left at the White Hart public house. From here to the site is about two miles and is well signed. However this access road is quite narrow in places and care must be taken as passing oncoming vehicles can be difficult. For obvious reasons new arrivals should be after 1. 00pm.

This campsite is part of the Longleat Estate. It couldnít be any more convenient for visiting the attractions that Longleat has to offer. The reverse of that is that it is otherwise a bit remote if for example you have a motorhome which you donít want to take off site. The site is open between March and early January and accepts non-members but not tents. There are 164 pitches, the majority are on hardstanding. The site has many mature trees which might cause a problem if you want satellite TV but co-ax connections are available. Mobile reception can be poor depending on network. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. There are two toilet blocks to usual Club high standards. At quieter times of year one block might be closed. Service points are dotted around the site. There are two motorhome service points but both require heavy drain covers to access. In the centre of the site is the information room and the building also has a family room with table tennis table. In addition for smaller children there is a playground. There is site wide WiFi but speed is fairly limited but perhaps not unexpected given the remoteness of the site. Reception sells a few essentials. Generally the site is quite peaceful but remember you are next door to a Safari Park so there will be some animal noise from time to time. Likewise the pitches along the approach road are subject to a bit of estate traffic noise during working hours.

I am sure the majority of campers that visit this site do so to enjoy the various attractions that Longleat offers. The entrance is literally outside the campsite gate. Longleat is geared up for children of all ages. If you visit the campsite page on the Club website there are links to reduced price entry tickets and when available donít forget to download vouchers for savings on catering and gift shops. Be aware that not every attraction is included in the ticket price. For the railways and Safari Bus an additional fee applies. Around Christmas time Longleat have their Festival of Light which is mainly based around Chinese lanterns and other features and is well worth a visit.
