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.

Great time
Second time staying here and even though the site was full it was just so peaceful and relaxing.... stayed for two nights with a few of our extended families. Staff so friendly and helpful. Kids were little disappointed that the little shop was gone so hopefully this will be back soon.... Only thing that would make this place even better would be showers... see you again soon x

Hidden gem
This was an absolute amazing experience. I had booked somewhere for a very large family get together not knowing what the site was like. We were tucked away in our own little field and felt we could really relax. The children had endless fun playing on fallen trees and making shelters in the woods. I would say this is a perfect site for children and adults alike, with enough space to not be on top of each other and lots of areas of peaceful nature filled calm. And amazingly there was a beautiful walk to the shops, seemingly hidden but very doable.

Perfect for families and dogs
We were looking for a campsite that would accommodate our large dog (Rhodesian Ridgeback) and had felt that being near to a forest would work well. We couldn't have been more thankful to discover Camping in the Forest and Postern Hill. This being our first time camping in the UK (having previously camped in South Africa many years ago), it was an excellent experience. We stayed two nights, and spent most of our time either on the campsite or in the forest. Gave me many good memories to back up those I have of camping in very similar circumstances back in SA. Perfect location for families and dogs, with a safe environment for children to run/scoot/cycle around, lovely picnic area nearby, and a fantastic forest to explore beyond. Thank you for making it an experience to remember. We will return!

Lovely camp site
We had a brilliant time camping here. It was so calm and quiet on the Thursday night. It got a lot busier on the Friday night but still didn't feel crowded. The facilities are great and well maintained and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I don't think we could have chosen a better place for our first family camping trip!

Beautiful campsite in wonderful forest close to delightful town
We received a very warm welcome and great care was taken to find the ideal spot for us, close to our friends. The camp site is beautiful - set in the most amazing forest. We spent many hours wandering through the calm of the trees, enjoying the ancient oaks which were well marked. Despite the site being incredibly peaceful it is a short walk to Marlborough - a lovely town to visit with excellent restaurants and pubs. In normal circumstances the four ladies toilets would be more than adequate but on the Saturday night we were there about 120 teenage girls descended creating huge queues last thing at night and in the morning.

Good site
Lovely setting - perfect for the Savernake Forest and for Marlborough. Wardens helpful and friendly. Facilities adequate but cramped and "elderly" and issues concerning hot water. Showers are surely a must in the 21st century. The state of the washing facilities makes the site dubious value for money.

Relaxing with lovely staff in an idyllic location close to many amenities
Considering it was a busy weekend on the site, staff Dave and Debbie couldn't do enough to please or accommodate everyone's needs or wishes and were warm, friendly and approachable. I would certainly, and have already recommended, this relaxing and beautiful location. An indication of how enjoyable it's been, is that we keep coming back,and have already stayed twice in 2 weeks, and fully intend to return again soon.

So disaapointed...
So disappointed... that we had serious motorhome issues that meant having arrived, been really warmly welcomed and provided with bags of information, found a lovely pitch, we had to pack up and head straight off. Dave and Debs were fantastic and tried their very best to work out ways we could stay, but as no electrics or fridge/freezer (not long had this motorhome so its back to the dealer) it couldn't be done. However they immediately offered either to re-book us or refund without quibble - we have gone for the re-fund only because we don't know when we will be back up and running. But can't wait to get back here for a proper stay...only given 4 stars so far as we haven't used facilities ...
