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.

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.

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...

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.

Relaxing in the Mud
We stayed at Postern Hill over the recent wet bank holiday, the campsite was lovely and the staff friendly. When we arrived many of the pitches were a bit boggy because of the rain but we managed to find a less boggy spot, wellies were definitely required. Luckily the weather held off so we pitched in warm sunshine. The only negative was that there weren't enough sinks for washing dishes, 2 sinks for a site with 170 pitches is really not enough, especially as when you managed to get a free sink there was no hot water left.

Jim and Nicky review of Postern Hill
My wife and I were very lucky with the weather-May bank holiday weekend, the hottest so far this year! We had an epic 5 day break here, the site is absolutely gorgeous. We were allowed to pitch where we liked (keeping to the 6m rule) and found a nice secluded spot near a big bush where we had an enormous amount of birds popping in!! The forest is huge and we spent a whole day there walking. Marlborough is a delightful little town only a short walk as is Tescos and a BP garage. The main road near the site is very noisy but it didn't spoil our break. Toilets are adequate, clean and presentable. Plenty of waste and CDP points and EHU posts if you need them. Definitely recommend it and we would definitely return.

Louise Akehurst review of Postern Hill
We are season pitch holders on our 4th season. Find the staff friendly, helpful and polite. This season so far they have kept the site to a high standard considering the bad weather and still found the time to tow campers in and out. We have a 9 year old son who loves the site and we feel very reassured that he is safe playing around the site due to the security by the staff. Our 2 year old dog also loves it :) We frequently have family and friends visit and we highly recommend this site.

Large family group first time at this site, it was excellent. Made welcome by friendly staff and nothing was too much trouble. Put on loads of events for jubilee weekend which was good fun. Campsite was spotless. Nice walk into town through woods.

First Time review of Postern Hill
This was the first time that we used our caravan and besides the really wet weather we enjoyed ourselves and will most definitely return; but feel that we would prefer to stay when it is a bit drier. Due to forest location, not the best for wet weekend. Fantastic place for dog owners.

joan coombes review of Postern Hill
We have stayed at this camp site for at least 10 years, we have always enjoyed our stays, it has some lovely walk for dogs lovers and their owners. It is clean and tidy, no dog mess on the site. The wardens go out of their way to make you feel welcome and leave you to enjoy you holiday. The toilet blocks are spotless.Marlborough is a quaint town plenty of shops, and a tescos a five minute walk away. WE dont live far from the campsite and always go back at least twice a year for a quite rest .

GMLS review of Postern Hill
Spent 4 days here in the middle of February. We received a very warm welcome from the warden who warned us that due to the recent rain the pitches were difficult and that we should park too far back so that he would be able to pull us off. The pitches were poor and we would have been in great trouble had he not been able to use his tractor mower to pull us off.It did mean we decided to remain parked up rather than explore locally. The owners really should invest some of the fees (which certainly are not cheap) into providing more hardstandings on this all year round site. Surroundings are lovely though and the newly opened Tesco is just a short walk down the hill.

maceng review of Postern Hill
This is a gorgeous site indeed. We too had an epic break, helped by the good weather, but the site does a lot too. Very friendly wardens, relaxed about pitching locations. However, although scrupulously clean, the facilities really are just a Portacabin, and NO showers.The site is crying out for an upgrade! But we liked it - lots of great walking (our dog liked that, too; and easy access to Marlborough. But why do the wardens not offer local information leaflets in Reception? And bus timetables? We would have bought leaflets - a trick missed here! Site does get busy with families at weekend - lots of rug rats! But all polite, and definitely not couch potatoes!

Disappointed review of Postern Hill
�ۡ��� Not the friendliest staff on the planet, and certainly not up to Camping & Caravaning Club standards. Decidedly disagreeable attitude. �ۡ��� Pleasant site (and very handy for the delightful town of Marlborough), but adjacent to a busy main road. �ۡ��� Very poor drainage, even on highest ground. �ۡ��� Facilities adequate, but loos didn't always flush. Overall: sadly, not recommended.
