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.

Another Brilliant stay
Yet again the hosts made us feel so welcome, they are always so friendly and helpful, the site is situated right next to the forest where we enjoyed lovely walks and cycle rides, the campsites toilet facilities were spotless as usual, talking to the other campers on site most had been to the site before which speaks for itself. Fully recommend this site for nature lovers who enjoy the peacefulness of the site and forest, cant wait until we visit again, Andy and Lynn

Small bur perfectly formed
Bit wary about no hardstanding for our motorhome home, but given good advice on arrival about best pitches to head for as ground was very wet. We had electric but were still told to pitch anywhere around the electric, this was easy as it was not busy, but could be an issue in busiest times. No showers, which was no problem for us, toilets were basic but clean and well kept and were well heated as it was around freezing all weekend. As others had said the walk on the marked path into Marlborough is slippery so you need good shoes, takes 10 mins to Tesco, 20 mins to the town. Lots of other walks and good tracks for cycling, lots of space for kids, dogs to enjoy, and no roads.... Good base to visit many other local attractions, not something we did. Friendly staff who were helpful when needed. Will be back and would recommend.

Lovely campsite
Beautiful campsite for our visit in our brand new van! Savernake Forest is wonderful, and we must take the bikes on our next visit.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Well located friendly site
Stayed here for the first time with my husband and two dogs. Ground was a little soft in places but we could choose where we pitched up. Toilets were clean. Hot water was a bit sporadic but site staff were trying to fix this. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Location fantastic with a gate from the site into acres of beautiful ancient forest. We drove to Barge inn at Pewsey (20min) and to Who’d a thought pub for meals where the food was excellent and catered for gluten free. Didn’t venture into Marlborough itself as it was very busy with a fair and the road was closed. So will definitely return to site again.

Trees, oh wonderful trees!!
We loved our stay in Postern Hill. The facilities are basic but very clean and suitable enough. The staff are sooo helpful and friendly. Will go back, no doubt. We didn't even mind the rain. Loved it all.

Fabulous campsite
Great location, great campsite, outstandingly friendly staff! Interesting walks around the Forest spotting ancient trees, make sure to collect a map from reception. Terrific for dogs. Loads of shade for hot stays and very well kept.

Lovely peaceful site
Postern Hill is a delightful, peaceful site to stay on. Informal pitching arrangements and the mature trees and open grassland really do make this a 'camping in the forest' experience. Friendly and helpful wardens, immediate access into Savernake Forest directly from the site and a signed walk into Marlborough add to the charm. Facilities are limited as advertised, and although the toilet block could certainly do with an upgrade and refurbishment, they are perfectly serviceable and clean.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Gorgeous site.. so peaceful
What a lovely spot you have there in Savernake. So spacious and peaceful.. think I heard deer munching by my tent in the early hours. Bliss. Obviously showers would be a bonus, especially as the portacabin style toilets where in urgent need of modernising. Smelt damp and fausty and please.. no toilet code.. I couldn't remember it at 4am so had to find a bush. Will come again most definitely 😁

Limited facilities
Lovely site, on the very edge of the Savanack forest, used our own facilities so never got to see the site toilet facilities, but in my experience the number of toilets would struggle to cope at busy times eg weekends and school holidays.The facilities are of the portacabin type and with 170 pitches on site are not upto C & C standard,it was like camping was 40 years ago!. Staff were very pleasant and allowed us on 10 mins early, something that never happens on a club site!!!.our costs per night were less than £12 a night,so good value there. Remember to bring your own facilities.
