Alan Rogers Review
Blackland Lakes was established in 1984 and is situated in beautiful countryside close to the Marlborough Downs. The 15 acres comprise six small, tree-lined paddocks and three small lakes, two for coarse fishing and one as a nature reserve for wildfowl. There are 180 pitches for caravans and tents, 130 with electricity and 15 ‘super pitches’ with all main services. Modern, log cabin style buildings house the reception and licensed shop and the usual sanitary facilities. 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.
Two blocks house the usual sanitary facilities including those for babies and disabled visitors. Laundry. Shop. Covered barbecue area. Field kitchen and Turkish oven are available for hire. Fishing. Play area. Vehicle wash (charged).
