We've just got back from 3 nights at this campsite and it rates as one of the best sites we've ever stayed at. It is situated at the top of a hill, so is surrounded by beautiful rural views on all sides but the site itself is totally flat and stone free. It did get a bit windy but it wasn't a problem. Access to the site is along a long and very bumpy track but at least that means you're a long way from any roads. The pitches are very generous sizes and they take tents, caravans and campervans.

The site was wonderfully quiet while we were there so there was loads of space for the children to play. There was another flat field available for football and noisy games if it was needed but we'd forgotten the football!

The facilities were simple but immaculate for all the time that we were there. The new owners just took over the site this year and so far they are doing a great job. There was lots of useful information in the washrooms and the owners were happy to exchange/refreeze/ hire out ice blocks if needed. At £15 a night for 4 of us it was also pretty good value.

It's a really beautiful area to explore. The local village, Coombe Bissett is very sweet and has a really useful shop (open 7am - 6pm) which also stocks camping gaz. We used the Park and Ride to explore Salisbury which was very easy and Rockbourne Roman Villa was small but fun for the kids. There were loads of footpaths and bridal ways to explore.

I would highly recommend this site for anyone with or without children, wanting to spend some time in this area.
