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.

This is a lovely site
If you like camping in a 'scenic' location among mature trees this is the site for you. We loved it, it has a relaxed atmosphere, with wonderful walks in the Savernake forest, also it's easy to walk into Marlborough for shopping and a good range of eateries (it's centre still has character rather than the usual "I could be anywhere in Britain" feel). If you want WiFi and luxury facilities forget it.
Unit Type: Camper Van
I arrived when the office was closed (between 2-4pm) however I found a warden who told me to find a free EHU of my liking and come and let her know later where I had chosen. I loved this very relaxed approach which continued during my 2 day stay. There were no showers which didn't bother me, and the toilets were adequate. This is a fantastic place for families with lots of safe space for children to enjoy the outdoors. The campsite is right on the edge of Savernake Forest which has so many paths, walks and is full of old and interesting trees. If you like a quiet, back to nature, no fuss holiday/break I would highly recommend this site. I now want to go and stay at another 'Camping in the Forest' site.

Not impressed
Not impressed by the site it self , toilet block really could do with being replaced. The grass being cut and general tidy up all round for the price being charged. I have stayed at better for less.

Lovely site
I've stayed here many times and I think it's lovely. The last time was during half-term with my dog in a Campervan. A pet hate of mine is the playing of music by campers - I like music but I don't want to listen to other people's music (and I doubt they'd like to listen to mine!). I don't know what the policy is here but it's quiet at night and everyone is respectful of those around them. The forest is fab for everyone and great for walking as is the surrounding countryside. Marlborough is a 15min walk away and has plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Simply lovely!
We chose Postern Hill for our first outing as caravan owners and we definitely chose right. This is a really lovely quiet site in an idyllic setting. Plenty of forest for the kids to explore, complete with rabbits and squirrels in abundance to my daughters delight! It really feels like you are in a remote place even though you have a Tesco and Subway a couple of minutes away and only a short drive/nice walk to Marlborough. The facilities were clean and the welcome from all staff was very warm and friendly. It is a shame the facilities are limited as we could easily stay for longer. The kids are already asking when we can go back!

Beautiful and friendly site
We loved this site, in such a beautiful setting and surrounding by the most amazing forest. Faultless, as were the staff who were always cheerful and friendly. Would definitely return. The only reason it's not got five stars is that the toilets need a bit of a refresh - the lack of showers would be a problem for some but we copied without for our three days.
Unit Type: Tent
A lovely wooded site!
We parked our van in the bottom field just on the edge of the forest. It was such a beautiful spot to spend the night. The only thing to bear in mind on this site is that there are NO SHOWERS! Not the end of the world but would elevate from good to great.
Unit Type: Camper Van
As Fantastic as Ever
Great site set on the edge of Savernake forest. Plenty of room to pitch wherever you like. Friendly staff. Took my 3 children, 14, 11 and 2 years old. All loved it and had a great time. My wife also found our few days there very relaxing. Big Tesco store very close for any supplies you may need. Would recommend this site to everyone and will be returning asap.

What a lovely weekend!
Had a lovely weekend camping at Postern Hill. We were greeted by two lovely gentleman upon arriving who were very friendly and helpful. The site itself has open space with well established trees for shelter. The woods are a stones throw away and a good adventure to take the kids on. It's nice to have a dog friendly site too. Tesco is only 10 minute walk away and more importantly there is a Costa nearby for early morning. Would definitely recommend a visit! Only reason for the 4.5 stars (and not 5) is there are no showers but for a weekend break, it's not an issue...
