Alan Rogers Review

Longleat Caravan and Motorhome Club site in Warminster is in one of the network's most unique locations - where else in the UK or Europe can you hear lions roaring at night from the comfort of your bed? The site is situated in ten acres of lightly wooded, level grassland within walking distance of the house and gardens, next to Longleat House, gardens and Safari Park. There are 164 generous pitches, some seasonal (151 with hardstanding and 6 on grass), all with 16 amp electricity connections. Water points and recycling bins are neatly walled with low night lighting. Two new buildings provide immaculate facilities, while an amenity block houses a family room and tourist information. Admission charges now apply to all of the Longleat attractions and grounds. Discounts are available to Caravan and Motorhome Club members. Please note that Longleat are not able to accept dogs within the grounds or attractions. There are however, other beautiful walks available from the site that members can enjoy freely and at their own leisure. Longleat is the perfect location to pitch up your tent to visit the Safari Park or House. You'll be camping on grass pitches with easy access to toilet, kitchen and shower facilities.

There are several pubs within a 2 mile radius (a lovely walk on a summers evening) and a short drive will bring you to the lively towns of Bath and Bristol. The Roman, Regency and 20th century Bath being a special favourite for visitors touring in Wiltshire. Still famous as a spa, you can take to the waters and literally soak yourself in history. With winding streets and pretty listed buildings, Frome is about 15 minutes from the site. Several fascinating nearby sites of historic interest include Stonehenge, Avebury Neolithic monument and Lacock Abbey.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Location

Follow sat nav to The White Hart (postcode BA12 7PH) then follow the brown tourist signs to the site. Alternatively, turn left off the A36 Warminster bypass (Salisbury - Frome) at the roundabout onto the A362 (signposted Frome). In about 0.5 mile at the roundabout take the A362 (third exit) to Frome. After 2.25 miles turn into Lane End next to the Longleat Tavern public house. Continue past the Safari Park Entrance and Stalls Farm before turning left again. The site entrance is 200 metres on left. This is the only permitted entry route for caravans and motorhomes. Please note that estate routes may change in the case of a special event. Note: When using sat nav for directions to the site, please use the postcode BA12 7PH ( pub at Lane End on the A362), and follow the brown direction signs to site. If coming from the Warminster direction on the A362 please do not attempt to take the first left after the Royal Oak pub as this lane is far too narrow.
