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.

Quiet and hassle free site

For this time of year out of school holidays it was a very very quiet site.WArdens were pleasant but please have more info at your disposal over bus times and facilities.What you need to bear in mind is that this site is set on a hill.The handy footpath to the outskirts of the town is great going down it but coming back up it was a struggle.Buses do not stop on the main road to pick up and drop off.The nearest bus stop going to eg Salisbury is from the base of the footpath or in town or half a mile away from the site entrance on a very busy road. However the site layout is good.You can choose your own spot depending on preference for electricity or not. We will return here for the peace, quiet and tranquillity and the blackberries.Cycling in the forest itself was very easy to access and again undisturbed. Looking forward to a return stay.

I have been going to Postern Hill for many years this year I left my caravan for a number of weeks Rob, Jeanette ,Tom and Karen the wardens are very lovely and helpful people and keep the camp very tidy I have 2 dogs and it is great to be able to walk straight into the forest I would recommend the site for a holiday
Unit Type: Caravan
Fantastic

Lovely site easy access to lots of places. The camp site was clean and really quiet.

Joyous, refreshing and a lovely stay
/
Booked a 5 night stay with three dogs, chose the sight because it enabled me to take all 3 dogs on holiday. The site was perfect and I will definitely be back, the proximity of the forest - on the doorstep with easily accessible pathways and tracks. Did not need to leave using my camper as the town was easily accessible on foot as was the local supermarket. Staff could not have been more helpful and the toilet/washing up area was a credit as always neat, clean and tidy whenever visited during my stay.

The site was great, could have been slightly bigger but it was a bank holiday in all fairness. The reason I’m leaving the review is the staff. All of them were great, but one lady in particular stood out to me. I can’t remember her name, but she was in the cabin when we arrived on Saturday evening around 6:30. She was absolutely fantastic, very warm and friendly, told us all the information we needed to know about the site, and was just an absolute pleasure to deal with. She had to ask us to extinguish our bbq because it was after 10pm (sorry about that!) and even then she was so pleasant and polite. She really made the experience enjoyable and she’s a credit to your camp site. We will be returning!

A great no frills campsite!
/
Stayed with my 5 and 2 year old for a couple of nights over the August bank holiday weekend. Fantastic introduction for them to a great, no frills campsite ( though the access road that encirles the pitches is paved and we did get daily visits from an ice cream van - kids and I loved that though!). Love the fact it is situated on the edge of the forest and no set pitches (other than segregation of powered and non powered areas). Wardens were very helpful and all other campers we encountered were friendly, considerate and tidy. All in all a great experience and a well run yet relaxed space. Will definitely return and certainly recommend to others. Bear in mind that there are no showers and fairly basic wash up area and toilets, but if you wanted more than that then book a hotel or stay at home!

Lovely spot

Nice campsite with beautiful woodlands to walk into. My only criticism is lack of showers. Otherwise a lovely campsite for visiting Marlborough, Avebury and the beautiful Wiltshire countryside.

Love this campsite, clean and very friendly

We’ve visited Postern on numerous occasions this summer, each time we love it more than the last. The managers and their assistants go over and above expectations. The site is safe and very relaxing. The ice cream van visits daily which is an added bonus. The walk into Marlborough is easy and Marlborough is a beautiful old market town. Croissants and baguettes on the site are compatible with those you buy in France from the boulangerie. We’ll be back very soon. Highly recommend this site.

Lovely site

We recently spent 4 nights 5 days at Postern Hill campsite, we had a wonderful time exploring the woodlands, building dens and searching out the different wildlife, flora and fauna. Our pitch under the frees was beautiful and wonderful to wake up to. The toilets and washing up facilities were always clean. Tom and Karen were very helpful and gave us taxi numbers, placed to visit and great advice. Can’t wait to visit again soon.
