 This is quite a nice campsite on the outskirts of Marlborough on a hill at the top of Savernake Forest.

Mostly a flat site. All the electric pitches had mostly caravans, motorhomes, or camper vans. There were just a few people staying in tents.

Toilet facilities are Ďforest styleí and perfectly functional and clean. There are dishwashing facilities with hot water.

The wardens are friendly and welcoming.

Torch is needed at night for walking about.

Easy walk out to the forest. Tesco supermarket nearby. You can also walk to Marlborough from the campsite. Campsite gates open at 07:30 and are locked at 22:00.

The wardens have a cabin / reception selling various items, and coffees, ice creams, and possibly pizza too? No campfires are allowed as itís in a forest.

Recycling is available. Lots of drinking water points. Avebury ancient world heritage site is within easy travelling distance of approximately 10 minutes.

It didnít rain when we were there but the ground was still quite soft and moist. I recommend using rock pegs here for pegging out your tent.

 We liked the fact that it was open in February.

Very helpful and friendly staff who helped us place our caravan and get it out later.

As storm Eunice had occurred the ground was soft and muddy but their tractor got us in and out.

Very clean and warm toilets. Ample water and other outlets including electric hook ups.

We enjoyed our short stay a lot.

 We come here a lot through the year

We love this place, the grandkids love it. there is no play area for kids which is great, my grandkids make there own entertainment in the forest making bug hotels, building stick tents. They forget all about technology the whole time we were there

The wardens are fantastic and looking forward to seeing them soon. 😁

 Just spent a fabulous week at this site. Wonderful walks in the forest, dogs loved it.

Quiet, well maintained site with approachable friendly wardens.

Croissants etc are worth ordering for the next day and Pizza cooked on Saturdays.

 This spacious site is in a great location, especially for cycling.

The footpath to Marlborough is steep but good exercise!

The £3 late departure offer is a nice feature.

 Thanks to Rob at Postern Hill campsite for a brilliant stay. It was just what me and my family needed - and more!

We had an issue with our battery running flat, but the manager came and helped start up the car in no time, such a friendly guy.

Wishing you all the best and we will certainly look at returning in the future.

 We are so pleased to have found Postern Hill. We stayed on a non-electric pitch with our caravan - 2 dogs and 2 children and we all had a lovely time.

Beautiful woodland walks, Marlborough close by for shops and The Royal Oak pub down the road serving divine food.

The campsite was kept clean and tidy. The wardens were very knowledgable and helpful and supervised the site without encroaching on personal space like we've had a previous sites.

The children loved tree climbing and endlessly riding their push bikes.

Highly recommend - just booked our next visit!

 Great site within the forest - exactly as described. Yes, it rained everyday so the site was wet and the ground muddy. But the wardens were excellent and really helpful and welcoming.

The toilets are old but kept immaculate - not easy given their age and design.

We will certainly be back.

Reviewer: Drjbc 61 reviews from this member

 Whenever possible we like campsites with walks straight from the site without having to drive first.

The walks from here are not just in the forest but also along the ridge and river valley to the east and into Marlbourough down the steep hill to the north. If you do want to drive there are other good walking areas within a few miles.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, with a relaxed attitude to where we pitched and even arranged a refund when we transferred to a cheaper pitch that the website had wrongly claimed were all full.

Just one negative - obviously the toilets have to be closed for cleaning, but does it have to be between 9 and 10 in the morning? That's exactly when most campers are going to want to use them!

 We came when the weather was awful but the welcome that Chris and Rachel gave us could not have been warmer.

Yes it rained but this forest is as good as you will find anywhere.

We will be back.
