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, whether you're a seasoned camper or just starting out.

Postern Hill is rich in everything ecological – from grand and ancient trees to a rich array of flora and fauna. In the summer Postern Hill is a hot spot for bats with one of the largest varieties in the UK. If you're camping during the winter months you may spot a deer or two roaming in the woodland. There are also plenty of noisy owls to be hear all year round!


Full of registered oak, beech and sweet chestnut trees, the forest boasts the largest beech avenue in Britain. The forest surrounding the site has been awarded with Site of Special Scientific Interest status due to the diversity of wildlife and plants found within the land.

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 ancient oak trees, and all provide more than a glimpse of serenity.

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

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.

Had a great weekend as usual, even though our friends had many problems with their caravan. If you are in to geocaching there are loads in the forest attached to campsite, although as I went out quite late in evening I didnt look for too many. No problem having no showers, unless you are camping in a tent, but being unwashed for a couple of days isnt really a problem. Many squirrels, deer and rabbits to be seen. Staff very helpful and friendly. Always like to go to the site to chill out. Only downside if you stay too long and the weather isnt great the electricity is very expensive.

Peaceful and relaxing

This was our first stay at a Camping in the Forest site; it won’t be the last! We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed way of pitching, the space and the feel of sleeping in the forest.

Lovely Site, Lovely People

In beautiful woodland surroundings with minimal facilities, we love this site. Wardens are helpful welcoming souls and couldn't do enough for us. When the fish and chips van didn't arrive, one of the team took orders from carava sand went to the local chippy, delivering each order to the appropriate 'van. First trip out for our dog who had a wonderful time. We are going back thee real soon.

Facilities need major upgrade

Wardens helpful and friendly. Pretty setting. Some pitching areas have large dips. Facilities need major upgrade. Toilets very basic. Water and disposal points need rebuilding. Ok for one night stop as it currently is

Highly recommended

This is a lovely spacious site on the edge of the forest. The toilets etc are very well kept, as is the site in general. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I extended my stay for an extra day and would have stayed longer if only there had been showers. There is lots to do in the area, and lovely places to walk and explore. Would have been 5 stars if had showers.

Lovely site and friendly wardens

We stayed at the site over the Bank Holiday weekend with friends. The welcome from the wardens was friendly and efficient. As we were setting up one of the wardens came over to ensure we were not too close, but this was done in a friendly way not officious. The baguettes available in the mornings (order evening before) were lovely.

Excellent campsite and location
/
We have stayed at Postern Hill a number of times and always love it. Excellent location, friendly staff and loads to do around the local area. The only downside for us is the lack of shower facilities. We have stayed at many a campsite for the same cost but which have showers. You can use the local leisure facilities for a small fee though...although they are not always open at the necessary times! Fantastic place to visit...just bring the wet wipes!

Love this campsite :)

This is the 5th or 6th time we've stayed at Postern HIll, and despite it being a bit chilly, we still loved it. We usually come here with friends, and there's something about the combination of relaxed pitch selection, the forest, the nice town within walking distance, Tesco at the bottom of the hill and the friendly wardens that makes for a nice trip away. We went with another family this time and our combined 4 kids had a great time riding round the site road, playing in the trees, and generally being outside. We enjoyed our Saturday afternoon in one of the lovely (warm) pubs in Marlborough, and the kids thought the walk home in the dark was great fun. The facilities are basic but clean, and the lack of showers has never been an issue for us for a weekend (so long as we all smell, it's fine :) ) If you're looking for a fully featured site with parks and cafes, showers and serviced pitches - this isn't for you - but if you're looking for a nice campsite in a great location I can highly recommend it!
