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.

Lovely site
Great site, beautiful setting, level pitches. Lots to see & do in the surrounding area. Good for stargazing. Wonderful staff. Toilet block could do with updating & a shame there are no showers.
Unit Type: Tent
Great forest
Friendly site wardens, can see they have created their mark on site but no hot water in pot wash and toilets. To be honest they are trying their hardest with really old worn out facilities. Give this site a new toilet block and it would be 5 stars.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Good time
I stayed at the Postern Hill Site with the Small Motorhome and Friends Forum. I have to say the the Wardens Neal and Jane couldn't do enough for us to make out stay as good as possible. The Toilet block although functional its need to be modernised. While I was there for 6 Nights there was NO hot water in the Toilet Block or washing up station. It was Finally sorted the day before I left to come Home. From What we heard there had been NO hot water for atleast 2 week. Now I think that that was Not Acceptable when you have Families staying with Children. So that alone has made me only give 3* and they are for the Wardens and Cleanliness of the site.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Great site for cycling and visiting Marlbrough
The welcome was excellent and the staff very helpful, the site is clean and well kept, they could do with thinking about having a drive over grey waste for motor homes, but other than that it has good services, but note there are no showers. Local to the forest for cycling with lots of off road and traffic free routes. There is a footpath down the hill into Marlborough but its not for the unfit, (its a good climb back up the hill for the return). Lots of level pitches, although some are on a slope, but lots of room and a relaxed attitude to choosing a site to park. Overall a great site and one which we will use again in the future.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Enjoyable excellent wardens.
This site is in a beautiful forest and a short distance from Marlborough. The site had problems with the hot water boiler in the dish wash area and toilets. The wardens very kindly offered hot water to those that required it.. The £6.30 ehu is far far too expensive we declined it. The wardens Jane & Neil were superb, they are very friendly and willing to do all they can to make your stay enjoyable.. Neil ferried our group plus dogs into Marlborough for our SundayRoast and collected us. 12 people in total.. We were all placed together as group of 30 ppl from the forum Each and everyone of us enjoyed our stay. Sincerely hope that Neil and Jane will be wardens next year for our return meet..
Unit Type: Motorhome
Nice site
This is a nice site but in need of some Money being spent on it toilets were very clean but tired no hot water for our 5 night stay so we boiled our own water with gas as EHU cost was to expensive for us £6+ p/n the warden's were fantastic could not do enough to make our stay happy would given 5 stars but for no hot water and cost of electric
Unit Type: Camper Van
Lovely peaceful site with very helpful wardens
Stayed for 2 nights along with 18 other units as part of a group. Wardens were very helpful, ensuring that we were all camped together, and had plenty of space in the centre of our circle to gather! In fact they went out of their way to ensure that we had an enjoyable weekend! Nice walks, especially for my dog. I did not require an EHU as I have a solar panel however I do think the cost for this is excessive especially for small units!
Unit Type: Motorhome
Relaxing break
Our first time using Camping in the Forest, our usual break is a CS. The site was well kept and despite being quite full surprisingly quiet. Nicely situated in the Savernack Forest which was easily accessed with plenty of quiet paths to wander through trees. Our only down side was the hot water, or lack of! it had been off for several days before we arrived and it seemed like there was no attempt to fix it, not even a sign posted to say " such and such is broken and awaiting engineer to fix / replace" Staff were friendly and accommodating although it appeared some of the occupied units looked like they had been there some considerable time. We would certainly go back again, as it was one of the most relaxing breaks we've had.
Unit Type: Caravan
Lovely clean and friendly campsite
You can pitch your tent wherever you want to in the grass pitch only area which I like. Lovely clean and tidy site and the staff were friendly and helpful. Direct access to Savernake forest which is beautiful and was great for walking the dog. Great place to get away from it all and relax. Can't wait to go again!
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Despite arriving on site halfway through a busy summer bank holiday weekend that promised good weather, we had no problem finding a pitch. The arrivals process was simple and the staff friendly. Yes, the toilet facilities are basic, but they were clean. The surrounding forest is beautiful and good for dog walks. Our stay was exactly as we imagined it would be.
