Alan Rogers Review

Blackland Lakes was established in 1984 and is situated in beautiful countryside close to the Marlborough Downs. The 15 acres comprise 7 small, tree-lined paddocks and 3 small lakes: 2 for coarse fishing and 1 as a nature reserve for wildfowl. There are 180 pitches for caravans and tents, 130 with electricity and 15 hardstanding ‘super pitches’ with all main services. Modern, log cabin style buildings house the reception, small shop and the usual sanitary facilities. Sam's Bar on site offers alcoholic drinks as well as pizzas. Fishing is understandably popular here, and the lakes are well stocked with carp, roach, tench, perch and others.

One lake is maintained as a wildlife reserve and is home to a variety of wildfowl, and is frequently visited by kingfishers. There is much to see in the area. Bowood House is a fine 18th-century mansion, and home to the Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne. There are many walking and cycling opportunities around the site, and the owners will be pleased to recommend ideas.
