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 Woodland Site
We stayed at this site for a Friday and Saturday night just for a quick break away. It's fairly near to where we live as we didn't want to drive far. We had a lovely warm welcome when we arrived on Friday and selected our pitch easily. It was very busy, which was nice. There are no showers, only toilets and washbasins, which we knew when we booked. We didn't think this was a problem for 2 nights! The toilets were kept spotlessly clean. The site has access straight into the forest for lots of walking. We saw deer, lots of bird life and a bees nest, which we gave a wide birth! You can also walk down into Marlborough, which takes about 20 minutes on the way there and slightly longer on the way back, as it's up hill. We would definitely stay again for a weekend and the site is open all year.

Excellent site and very friendly
Only our second trip in our motorhome and couldn't have asked for a better site to visit. The informalness of the pitches, location and overall ambiance on the site made for a memorable weekend. We will definitely be visiting again and looking to book other 'Camping in the Forest' sites.
Unit Type: Motorhome

Unit Type: Tent
As usual a great place to drop out
This was the third time this year we have visited as usual it was so relaxing and quiet a fantastic place to drop out for a few days. unfortunatly our time at Postern hill was cut short by 2 days as there was a family emergency and reluctantly we had to leave, we are hoping to return within the next 30 days we cant get enough, fantastic. 5 stars ++++
Unit Type: Motorhome
Wonderful greeting by Warden who pointed us to the perfect sunny spot away from everyone so we thoroughly enjoyed our campsite experience. Superb walks direct into the forest found us losing ourselves for hours. Didn't need the use of any facilities ourselves but loved the location...
Unit Type: RV Motorhome
Tranquil peaceful and pretty surroundings
Site very quiet and peaceful Staff very welcoming and helpful. Will visit again as we had a nice Easter weekend.
Unit Type: Motorhome
good in situ family campsite
Well-maintained with friendly, informative staff. Adequate facilities and situation guarantees a real forest feel (not least with glorious - if early - dawn chorus!). Was passing through for a one night only on a Devizes to Streatley trek on the Ridgeway so found price for a one-man tent steep but seems par for the course these days.
Unit Type: Tent
Tired facilities Great Location
Really good location with plenty of room for loads of campers and for kids to play. Staff friendly. Easy walk to supermarket and in to Marlborough centre. Toilet/washing block undersized and tired. More hook-up points needed. Showers needed.
Unit Type: Motorhome
Relaxing, Green, peaceful
We stayed just one night but thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed environment and style of camping produced by the staff at Postern Hill. It was great to park where we pleased (within reason) and the informality was just as camping was many years ago. If the latest showers and other amenities were built there it would become just the same as all the other camp sites offerings. So well done management please keep it just as it is.

Lovely relaxed site
We met up with friends and were delighted with the woodland setting. Staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful. Site close to Marlborough. There is a steep hill down to town past Tescos, but everything is really handy. Would be 5 stars if there were showers.
