    Top site for dogs

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, popular Salisbury racecourse, 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. Longleat, Beaulieu and the National Motor Museum and popular theme park Paultons are a great family days out from the campsite.

This is a busy site on the outskirts of Salisbury.

This review is for Salisbury

This is a busy site on the outskirts of Salisbury. But, mainly due to the excellent skills of the staff it is quiet and relaxing. Getting to the site is easy and booking in was no problem. The site is perfect for dogs as it is next to some wonderful walks and there is easy access to both the Avon riverside walk and Old Sarum Fort. The former is fantastic for wildlife and the latter is a must at sundown, with wonderful views over the Wiltshire countryside. It is close to Salisbury town centre but on the edge of the countryside. Close by are Old Sarum Fort, Stone Henge, The Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop and numerous other attractions. Although it is about an hours drive I thoroughly recommend a visit to Stourhead, especially if you take the country roads, as the scenery is wonderful. There is a food van on site which is open for very good breakfast food and on two evenings for fish and chips. Also there is a mobile pizza oven in the evening once a week. Very good pizzas. There are some lovely pubs in the nearby villages and I would recommend the Bridge at Woodford. Great location and good food and drink. Give the Harvester opposite the site a miss. It is very run down and dirty. The staff at the site are friendly and very efficient. This is a busy site but because it is so well managed it has an air of calm and relaxation. Salisbury is a short drive, or bus journey away and is a lovely town. The cathedral precinct is wonderful and the town has a bustling market and many independent shops. If you are into models I can heartily recommend the Salisbury Model Centre. The owner Dec is both friendly and knowledgeable. For the better half there are also several good sewing and fabric shops. I would highly recommend a visit to this site and we will be returning.

The site was well run and quiet.

The site was well run and quiet. We had views of sunsets over Old Sarum Hill which was next to the site. Salisbury is a flat easy walk away. There is a massive playing field next door which is great for dogs.

Stayed here on route to longer break in the New Forest.

This review is for Salisbury

Stayed here on route to longer break in the New Forest. Site adhering strictly to new arrival time of 1300hours, car park near entrance for camper vans & cars but might be tight for caravans/towing if you arrive before this time. A lot of camping units on site not just tourers which makes for a more relaxed atmosphere. Some sloping pitches but fine for caravan with leveling blocks. Two shower blocks so always somewhere to shower even during cleaning which is useful. There is a hot food wagon on site serving breakfasts and the usual fast food in the evenings to save cooking. Access to walkway/cyclepath to town centre passing Waitrose on route. Salisbury is a lovely city with lots to see and do. We didn't use our car at all during our visit walking to city and shops which was great. We didn't visit cathedral as had visited on a previous trip but did visit the Military museum and the National Trust property in Cathedral Close. The City Centre is mostly pedestrianised. Lovely views of Old Sarum from the site with easy access to walk to the top of the hill. We are planning a further trip for next year and will bring our bikes next time.

A friendly welcome by staff.

This review is for Salisbury

A friendly welcome by staff. The gentleman who showed me to my pitch was very patient and obliging and took time to show me various pitches before I found one I was completely happy with. The shop was still open at 7pm which averted the disaster of having forgotten the matches for the gas stove. It was Saturday evening and there was a van selling hot food, and was also there for breakfast, though I didn't indulge. The fabulous feature of this site is that it is next to a huge field which is perfect for energetic families, children and dogs. Old Sarum rises the other side of the field so it is picturesque too. I was given a map and written instructions for the riverside walk. I investigated, but as it was evening, and the path looked a bit gloomy, narrow and isolated I decided to walk into the city by the road instead, The downside of my stay ( which is not the club's fault, but I have subtracted a star) is that there was a low pounding beat from music from the adjacent social club from 9 pm to about 11.15. I was warned about this when I was shown round the site. Also, and much worse, later there was noise from the field the other side of the site where some people had settled in for the night in the corner of the field, and were shouting and laughing till well past midnight, and started up again at 5 am. As well as the disturbance, as I was camping alone, it did make me wonder whether this was a regular occurrence, and about safety, because anyone, in any state of being drunk, could just walk into the site from the field.. The above was a great shame, because otherwise it is a beautiful and spacious site near a very interesting city and I would come again.
