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. 

Please note that there are no showers at this campsite.

Very Relaxing and Enjoyable
Lovely warm welcome and lots of helpful information on arrival. Although the site was busy we found a great pitch with hook up which had fab evening sun. Easy access to all facilities and the site was peaceful and quiet after dark Only stopped for one night but will certainly visit again for a longer stay
Unit Type: Camper Van
Brilliant as usual
This is a regular stopover on our journey from East Suffolk to Penzance. A quiet almost secluded place. One of the first things we saw when driving to our pitch was a deer grazing amongst the trees. Freeview signal is almost nonexistent so be warned if that is your poison. The welcome is warm and helpful, for us this ticks every box.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Booked for 3 nights but left after 2.A pretty enough site & knew about the 'basic' facilities although toilet doors are tight trying to get out of. We booked a hook up & were told to 'take our pick' but there were only 2 available. All the best electric hook ups were taken by Empty caravans' with huge, ugly awnings like the camping version of second homes. 6 large pitches unavailable to travelling folk. Also, omitted to tell us about the busy main road with trucks using it through the night & planes flying over regularly. Not the peaceful break we were hoping for. We would not recommend. Disappointed.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Our first time camping in the forest. It was so peaceful and relaxing, soo green! Walking everyday off the camp site into the massive forest was just perfect. Very friendly and helpful team of staff too.
Unit Type: Caravan
Excellent Clean friendly site by an amazing forest
This was our first ever adventure in our newly acquired caravan. A lot of thought and research went into deciding which site we should visit. We have 2 golden retrievers so it was very important to us to make sure the site was dog friendly and had easily accessible walks. This site did not disappoint. We were welcomed by very friendly staff and were allowed to choose our own pitch. The site is extremely spacious and even when it started filling up towards the weekend it still felt uncrowded and had the feeling of camping in a forest glade. The toilet block had obviously been there a while but the facilities inside were modern with a light, bright airly feel and very, very clean. Lots of electric hook up points and easy access to waste disposal and fresh water. The forest was absolutely amazing. I don't think I have ever seen such large trees. We stayed on the site for all of our 4 day stay exploring a very small part of this huge beautiful forest.

❤ Postern Hill
This is the 5th time I have stayed at Postern Hill and I've already booked to go again. The site is relaxed and very well looked after, the staff are amazing and will bend over backwards to help you. Set on the Hill, just above the beautiful town of Marlborough , it is also right next to the stunning Savernake forest, which has miles of paths ideal for walking and cycling. I've been caravaning for 6 years now and this is my favourite site ❤.
Unit Type: Caravan
Nice site but poor toilet block
Lovely site, clean, good staff who were very helpful. However, the site is expensive when you look at the toilet facilities, clean but need some major investment. Hot water to the toilet taps took an age, hand dryer was useless. Road noise not a massive issue but can be clearly heard.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Excellent site and friendly welcoming staff
We have visited the site many times. It is an excellent site and the staff are friendly and welcoming. We only live around the corner but love staying here. It’s great for kids.
Unit Type: Caravan
Fantastic for us as newbies to camping
We were warmly welcomed to the campsite staff. Clear instructions on where to park our teardrop. Reception was very helpful when we forgot a few things. We enjoyed the pizza in the evenings and the fresh croissants and pain au chocolate in the morning. The walks in Savernake Forest were so peaceful for us and full of exciting things for the dog to sniff out. We look forward to returning in the near future.

Friendly staff
Our two adults and one dog visited Postern Hill Campsite from Monday until Friday in late April 2022. We were originally planning a 4 night stay without electric hook up but when we were setting up, for some reason the fridge in the caravan wouldn't start on the gas setting, so wen decided to upgrade to an electric pitch at a cost of over £7.50 per night... I personally was disappointed to find most other dogs on site being walked off lead, despite plenty of 'keep dogs on lead' signs being visible. That said the staff were extremely accommodating and the site was about 25% full, with 10% of those being unoccupied units. We visited Stonehenge, Avebury stones and lots of other places of interest and we didn't see a drop of rain all week!
