Alan Rogers Review

Postern Hill Camping in the Forest site is in the ancient Savernake Forest, surrounded by a network of tracks and paths. Completely immersed in the woodlands with lush, flat green pitches, Postern Hill is a special place for anyone. It is rich in everything ecological from grand and ancient trees to a rich array of flora and fauna. 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 has 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. Please note that there are no showers at this site. The site has 170 grass pitches (some seasonal) and most have 10 amp electric hook-up point.


In the summer, Postern Hill is a hot spot for bats with one of the largest varieties in the UK. If you are staying during the winter months you may spot a deer or two roaming in the woodland. There are also plenty of noisy owls to be heard all year round. 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 quiet contemplation. Postern Hill site is just a 20-minute walk from the pretty market town of Marlborough where you will find a range of characterful cafes, restaurants and pubs each offering delectable food. For shoppers there is a plentiful choice of high street stores as well as several independents offering something slightly more unique.
