A campsite with views of a mighty iron age hill fort and all of Wiltshire to explore.
Pitch up at our Salisbury Club campsite and you’re ideally situated to visit some of Wiltshire’s best known attractions. Described as the city in the countryside, Salisbury is just a mile-and-a half riverside walk away. Justly famous for its cathedral, home to the famous Magna Carta, and its Close, this bustling market town also boasts attractive timbered buildings, a thriving market, museums and some of England’s finest historic houses.
Our campsite, at Hudson’s Fields great for kite-flying and walking – enjoys fantastic views over the hill fort of Old Sarum, which includes the remains of a pre-historic fortress, a Norman palace, a castle and a cathedral. The 150-pitch site is sloping and is split into two fields divided by hedging. It’s spacious and well laid out with good on site facilities and enjoys a truly rural feel.
The area is also well-known for the ancient monument at Stonehenge. Avebury, 19 miles to the north is another less crowded prehistoric site. Old Wardour Castle is also worth a visit.
Take a tour of Wilton House west of Salisbury, set in eight hectares of grounds, and the nearby Wilton Carpet Factory. Longleat, Beaulieu and the National Motor Museum and popular theme park Paultons are a great family days out from the campsite.

Dropping our son at Reading festival we were unsure where to go. My husband opened the Camping and Caravanning book at Salisbury and made a call. Our initial request of 5 nights could not be met so 3 nights was booked, however before our 3rd night arrived, we were told 5 nights would be possible. Salisbury is steeped in history and the site was made even more of a joy having Old Sarum in our sites every morning. Because this is a busy site pitches are clearly marked and safety is paramount. Facilities are spotless and access to Salisbury was explained in a helpful leaflet. A very well run club site, well done to the management. :)

Ok so it was busy when we arrived but the female warden had a go at a young boy who had queued politely because he wanted sweets at the " busy time" What 10 year old understands these things?
Then I was asked to reposition my windbreak because it had strayed 18 " outside my pitch Though we noticed many awnings were over the boundary and remained so during our stay
Good site for visits to Stonehenge Salisbury etc

Had no choice of pitch, staff not very friendly or helpful, apart from the man who pitched me. Could not be pitched close to my group. Was on pitch 1 next to gate, which had to be opened and shut every time someone went through it. Not sure why it could not have been left open in the day. Difficult if to manage if you are on your own. Very busy site about 30 mins walk into Salisbury.
One lady member of the site team was less than helpful on more than one occasion, and even reprimanded a small child who wanted to buy an ice cream at a busy time.
Another team member asked one of our group to adjust their windbreak by a few inches because it was slightly outside the pitch markings, yet a full awning nearby was left overhanging by a similar amount.
Whilst these are on their own small things, they became talking points within our group and spoiled our overall enjoyment.
This a pity as Simon who pitched us put a lot of effort into siting our units together, even though we were arriving on different days at one of the busiest times of the year.
