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 spot
Gorgeous little place, a fairly level and mostly grassed site surrounded by forest. Friendly site warden checked us in. We had a couple of circular walks with our dog, in the forest, which were mostly on well kept paths. No showers and toilet block is a bit like a portacabin but very clean so no complaints. Marlborough is a pretty town with lots of choice of cafe’s and restaurants; we drove (free parking suitable for even large motorhomes, in the long stay on a Sunday), but there is a sign for a footpath direct from site (next time!) February isn’t everyone’s choice for camping and we did have to enlist the help of our friendly warden to pull us off pitch but I’m sure we will return !
Unit Type: Camper Van
V. Welcoming
Just a one night winter stop but made very welcome on arrival and staff v friendly during our brief stay. Great location in first yet v. convenient for visiting charming town of Marlborough.
Unit Type: Caravan
Very boggy, should not be taking bookings when can't get onto the pitch
Very disappointed to find the pitches inaccessible when I had checked on booking if we could get onto the pitches or was it too wet. Despite being reassured that it was OK, the only place we could park without getting stuck was on the tarmac site road ! Don't go in winter unless you have a 4 x 4 or are happy to be towed onto and off a pitch. On a positive, staff were friendly and toilet was clean. Taxi into Marlborough was easy to book and cheap (£5 each way) Overpriced for Jan with no shower
Unit Type: Motorhome
Peaceful, pretty.
Lovely campsite, peaceful amongst the trees. Toilet facilities were spotless. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Will definitely visit again
Unit Type: Caravan
Nice friendly little campsite
I've stayed twice, October half term for 3 nights and a couple of nights in Jan to start the year before school ! The site welcomes dogs and there is plenty of space for them. A good number of water and waste points around the site as well as bins and recycling. Friendly and helpful people, the second time we had a hard-standing spot found for us since the ground was rather wet ! Facilities basic but always clean, the washing up lean-to shelter is really handy and saves making a mess in the van.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Nice quiet site
The site would be more user friendly if there were more footpaths to and from the toilets, especially this time of year when the ground is particularly soft. There was no hot water at the wash hand basins.
Unit Type: Caravan
Nice quiet site but please upgrade the toilet block
A nice quiet site with friendly staff. But please upgrade the toilet block. It was lovely and clean but after all these years it needs upgrading and changing to a proper building similar to Ocknell/Longbeech. This is the only thing that brings my rating down
Unit Type: Camper Van
Fabulous forest campsite
Stayed overnight at Postern Hill; our first visit. Winter camping at it's best with frost; great space to enjoy the Savernake Foest; fabulous for dogs and long and short walks and within walking distance of Marlborough too. Welcomed by Colin, the camp ranger.
Unit Type: Camper Van

Posters hill
Having read the reviews I was looking forward to visiting postern hill, but when I got there it was even better than people had reviewed I visited the site before I arrived with my unit as the website said no grass pitches with ehu I spoke to Rob who told me because of the wet weather they had to remove the booking of some pitches He said so you want to come here with your motorhome ? I said yes He said well go and get it we’ll find you a place! I chose to arrive two days later, I was greeted by Bob and treated like royalty, he took me around the site and suggested various pitches I might like, I asked for a pitch that I could get satellite reception on, he immediately knew the signal direction and parked in line Although the weather was appalling the site is magical, it’s true it is near a main road but apart from some heavy lorries, noisy motorbikes and the occasional siren there was no noticeable noise from it There’s been mention of illumination on the site, I think that there is too much light on a lot of sites, it’s wonderful to have darkness so for my part there was a bit too much light I used my own shower the toilets were dared but spotless It is a bit of a chore to keep opening and closing the gate, but keeps out non campers as does the toilet code Pity about the weather but this for me is a fantastic site, made even better by Rob and Jeanette who can’t do enough for you and I just love their accents Well recommended site
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
