In the idyllic setting of the ancient Savernake Forest, surrounded by a network of tracks and paths, lies the blissful Postern Hill campsite. Completely immersed in the woodlands with lush, flat green pitches, Postern Hill is a special place for anyone even remotely interested in camping.
Postern Hill is rich in everything ecological – from grand and ancient trees to a rich array of flora and fauna. 

Hugged by the tree-lined boundaries yet spread spaciously through the site are some of the most beautiful pitches in Wiltshire. Each spot feels like it’s been taken straight out of a secret garden, whether carved into the bushes or overlooked by the site’s many oak tree, and all provide more than a glimpse of serenity.

Wherever you pitch up, you’ll be instantly surrounded by nature, and you’ll love it.

With the forest literally on your caravan door step you can take full advantage of  the many walking and cycling opportunities it offers. Made up of four valleys and more than 4,500 acres of woodlands, Savernake Forest also offers plenty of stunning views, picnic stops and places for contemplation.

Postern Hill campsite is just a 20-minute walk from the pretty market town of Marlborough where you'll find a range of characterful cafes, restaurants and pubs each offering delectable food and enticing tipples. For shoppers there's a plentiful choice of well-known high street stores as well as a number of independents offering something slightly more unique.

For a complete ‘get away from it all’ break, visit Postern Hill. Bathed in tranquillity, it will entice you back year after year.

First Timers
My 6 year old son and I stayed over night at Postern Hill last night. (16/8/14) This was our first attempt at camping. The site is very easy to locate and booking in was super easy. The site managers were very friendly and helpful. The site is clean and the facilities although limited are clean and tidy. There are plenty of places to pitch up, but there are no defined pitches is more relaxed just make sure you are 6 metres from everyone else and you're good to go. This makes it feel more natural but can make initially finding a spot when it's busy a bit harder. They hire out bat detectors too which was good fun. Next to the site there is a BBQ/Picnic area which is made up of a massive area with lots of trees, bushes for kids to play in. There is no actual play area but with all that goat around you who needs a play area. For our first time it was a great site and we will definitely go back. Generally if you want a standard pitch you can just turn up but if an EHU is required then you would need to pre book. My only wish is that it had showers on site, but there is a leisure centre nearby that had showers for a ?2.15 charge.

Happy Days
We have just bought an American RV, Postern Hill was the maiden voyage.. We had a great time, There was a lot to learn, and lucky for us we had chosen the right site. The staff at Postern Hill were brilliant, they helped us out no end and went totally above and Beyond the call of duty. We had problems with the electrics on the day we were due to leave. Pete & Ian came to the rescue and helped us out. We had to leave the RV there and return to Collect it the next day after they had charged the batteries and put the slide outs away. We had the Grandchildren with us and the boys had more than enough to keep them busy. Max our dog was in his element, there were no major restrictions on him. A massive thank you to Pete, Lorraine .. Ian, & Jules , who make Postern Hill the great site it is. We will be back soon, and would recommend the site to anyone...

Our winter trip in our 20+ Hymermobile motorhome
Both Sheila and myself had an enjoyable trip back to Postern Hill after a break of 10 years, we had a relaxing time and with the freindly advice from the wardens walked from the site to Malborough via the forest! We would recommend this site to all as it has both tranquillity and beautiful surroundings in abounds! Looking forward to our return visit this year.
