Campsites in Wiltshire
Head to Wiltshire and you’ll discover a county of beautiful rolling downland and spectacular wide valleys. At its heart is the vast and spectacular Salisbury Plain, flanked to the north by the Marlborough Downs while to the south are Cranbourne Chase and the West Wiltshire Downs. At Wiltshire’s south eastern tip the New Forest National Park spills over its boundary bringing with it a rich landscape of wood and heathland. In fact, around a half of the county is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ensuring the protection of its landscape, plants and wildlife.
Our Devizes Club campsite is a lovely quiet and secluded retreat by the side of the Avon and Kennet Canal in the heart of Wilshire. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers and cyclists. You can walk or cycle into Devizes from the site via the spectacular Caen Hill flight of 29 locks.
Some of the UK’s most significant prehistoric sites including the iconic Stonehenge and Avebury Stone circle are close by. Further afield Longleat and its 900 acres of parkland is a great family day out.
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 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. Longleat, Beaulieu and the National Motor Museum and popular theme park Paultons are a great family days out from the campsite.
More about Wiltshire
Wiltshire is perfect for campers wanting an active break whether on foot or on two wheels with miles of footpaths and tracks crisscrossing its diverse landscape, but the area is also steeped in history, myth and legend. The iconic Stonehenge is here as is the equally impressive Avebury Stone Ring. Wiltshire also boasts its own herd of white horses etched into the chalky hillside, the most famous at Uffington. The Marlborough Downs are too littered with earthworks, stone circles and hill forts and you can walk, or cycle, the Ridgeway – an ancient road which cuts through its mysterious landscape.
No stay in Wiltshire should be without a visit to the city of Salisbury, famous for its cathedral, and its host of bustling market towns including Malmesbury, Devizes and Marlborough. There are plenty of other attractions to enjoy too. For families there’s Longleat Safari and Adventure Park near Warminster and Bush Farm Bison Centre for starters. And there’s an abundance of stately homes and stunning gardens all waiting to be explored.
Our Wiltshire campsites are all well placed for you to enjoy all the county has to offer.
