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.

Lovely site with very friendly staff
5 night stay on lovely site. Ideal base for walking with varied scenery. Marlborough a short walk from site (muddy path after rain) and Tesco near by. Savernake Forest beautiful. Staff very friendly and nothing too much trouble.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Very good site will go back again
A good site with plenty of walks, level but with humps and bumps making slighty awkward to get a pitch that is level as most of the level pitches were taken by seasonal caravans. Very helpful steward (although they were only there for 3 weeks) like to thank them for assistance in helping us with a problem with our jockey wheel. Toilets very clean, the site had a lot of leaves which was expected this time of the year, the warden done his best in keeping them down to a minimum. Town has all the amenities that we wanted including a Fish and Chip shop (not highly recommended). Will go back again to do some more of the walks in the Forest.

Very relaxing
Just returned from a lovely stay at Postern Hill. The site was easy to find and just off the main road, with clear signage. The welcome was warm and friendly and although the site was very wet, the warden offered us a firm pitch next to the driveway. This was not a usual pitch so the electric hook up was further away than our cable reached, but he set us up with an extension, and was most helpful. Beautiful walks into the forest from the site, which was perfect for our dog, and only a 15 minute walk into charming Marlborough. Looking forward to returning in the autumn when the forest will look stunning.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
We will Return
This was our first visit to this site and it will not be our last. Arrived to over a foot of snow and the site was beautiful. We were warmly greeted by the owners and told lots about the site and local area. Plenty of room on the EHU plots. Good walks into Marlborough - toilets were very clean and plenty of fresh water. Looking forward to going back in the summmer

A winter wonderland
This was our first visit to Savernake Forest and it snowed for 24 hrs. It was so beautiful! The local walking was superb: wonderful old oaks and several species of deer seen. The attractive town of Marlborough is only a short walk away. There are no hard standings, which proved a problem in wet snowy weather but the warden was fantastic towing us out! The facilities were adequate and warm, but there are no showers. Plenty of hot water for washing up (and thawing out: our friends water tank froze). Despite our challenges it is a site we will definitely return to! And huge thanks to David, the warden.

Beautiful site with friendly ultra-helpful staff
We stayed in our motorhome for three nights just as the snow began to fall heavily. Temperatures dropped to -4 and our external watertank froze. The warden got the site hot water working and we were able to refill our tank and get water on tap again. It is a fantastic location with miles of fabulous woodland walks. Our dogs loved it. By the time we had to leave the snow was 6-8 inches deep and there was no way our van was going to get off the site, warden to the rescue! We were towed out to the road by the site tractor - quite an adventure all round. We have stayed at this site before during the warmer months, but will definitely come again during the winter when the forest is quieter, we saw deer, squirrels and even a red kite. Just fantastic! And a big thank you to the fantastic wardens.

Poor Experiance
My wife and I arrived on the 19th Jan 2019 having booked for 4 nights. We used to live in Salisbury a number of years ago so know the area quite well. When we arrived we were informed that we could site our motorhome anywhere that was available but advised not to drive too far from the tarmac main track due to wet conditions. Looking around both Motorhomes and Caravan were parked all over the place and pointing in all directions. So we went too far off the track trying to find a decent spot. We got stuck on the wet grass and had to be towed back onto the track. The Wardens were very helpful but the site was poor. No showers and the toilets were basic. Would we stay here again No. Shocked that is was a caravan and camping club site. We stayed for 2 nights and left never asked for a refund for the other 2 days. We drove down to Somerset and booked a hard standing premier site.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Lovely forest
Sadly we could only stay for a few hours due to unforseen circumstances, so left late evening and didn't see the warden before leaving so thank you for your warm welcome and help. What we saw of the site was lovely and we will certainly return.
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
The best
Don't came! There's no showers and no TV signal!! If you really need your TV so bad, don't leave the house! Why did you spend so much in a caravan/motohome if you're not gonna use the kitchen or toilet? Go to a B&B! To the real campers: The best site to be! One of the last real campsite in England. Not yet spoiled by making money facilities. It doesn't look like a parking lot and is inside the forest! Managers are very friendly, helpful and dedicated to maintain this beautiful site. Try not to spoil it!

Lovely forest campsite
Stayed for 2 nights for the first time ever.The welcome is friendly and the campsite is a green field with trees.Definitely a forest feel to it. The campsite has a path leading into Savernake Forest, where you can walk and visit the various old oaks. We took another path that took us into Malborough within 30 minutes, which had lots of pubs and quaint shops on the High St. We were warned when we arrived not to park our motorhome too far from the path as the ground was wet and we could have problems getting off. Probably something to remember for future visitors. This was sound advice. The site itself does not have showers, but the toilets were spotless. Facilities were not as extensive as most other sites, but this was reflected in the price. Overall a pleasant stay.
