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.

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

Winter on its way !

This was our first visit to a site for more than one night after purchasing our caravan two months ago. Postern Hill is a lovely site , we received a warm welcome from the site Wardens , and was given a large choice of areas to pick from. You get a reel feel of being in the middle of no where , the view from the front windows was just of the forest Which really was great to wake up to in the morning. Although there are no shops on the site , there is a local petrol station and Tesco where you can purchase anything you need and Malbrough is only a 15 minute walk away which is absolutely lovely. My only bad points of the site would be the toilet block is in need of replacement, and the illumination in certain areas could be better, several electrical posts had lights out that would have provided just enough light to navigate the Site of a night. We hope to return in the summer to make the most of the lovely surroundings and spending more time of an evening outside the caravan!

Very happy holiday at Postern hill

This was our second visit to Postern hill and defiantly will not be our last, we love this place, you get a wonderfully warm welcome from Rob and the staff, nothing is to much trouble for them. The walks in the forest and ‘named tree hunting’ are such fun, lots of wildlife all around. Well worth going off the main tracks, not only can you walk for miles but not see another person for hours, all this and just 1 mile from Marlborough. No showers but the toilet blocks are clean and adequate as are the washing up facilities. Plenty of electric hook ups but all grass pitches. All adults and dogs came home very relaxed even after walking for miles each day. We will be booking up again for next year.

Happy to have found camping in the forest online. I shall definitely check them out at other sites. No fussy camping,no showers. Simple suits me fine. Thankyou
Unit Type: Tent
Lovely, friendly site in a beautiful setting

This was my second visit to Postern Hill and I will be back. At just over an hour and a half from home it is perfect for me to just take off for a couple of nights. You can choose your pitch and there is a hook up so I can even catch up on some work if I really want to. The site is really friendly in terms of your welcome, the staff and the campers. You can buy hot drinks and such like in the reception area. There is a toilet block and a washing up area, plenty of drinking water and waste water disposal points. It is very dog friendly too. I love the fact that it is so peaceful, plenty of dog walking opportunities and Marlborough is just a 20 minute walk away. No showers at this site but this is not a problem on short trips or if you have a van with a sink!
Unit Type: Camper Van
Quiet site with basic facilities

Good basic campsite

Really enjoyed our short stay , bit of a slip slide into Marlborough, but do able even at 57 with dodgy knees. In the dry would be lovely walk. Basic, but clean, toilet block. Staff friendly and helpful. Quiet and peaceful setting, loads of wildlife close by. Would recommend.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Perfect

Fantastic site and the warden was a perfect host would thoroughly recommend
Unit Type: Caravan
Lots of squirrels!

Lovely site in the forest with Marlborough in walking distance. Facilities clean (no showers), no problems. Main road relatively close, no particular traffic noise except there happened to be sirens and motorbikes when I stayed which just felt out of place in such a tranquil setting. Hope this helps.
Unit Type: Camper Van
Beautiful location

Really enjoyed our stay. The wardens were helpful, friendly and actually seemed to be enjoying their work. I agree an update and a bit of cash spent on the toilet block is needed but it was clean. Tesco just down the road useful and a footpath to it through the forest.
