Why stay here ...
Recently opened rural site on a family stud farm. You may be looking for a peaceful getaway with uninterrupted views across the fields, stunning sunsets and dark, starry skies along with a short or longer break nestled in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You will be perfectly placed for exploring the Cotswolds, Bath, Castle Combe and Lacock and the many other lesser known and equally beautiful villages of Wiltshire, Somerset and Gloucestershire.
You can choose your pitch on a full acre field. We have no neighbours. The setup will suit those who want a simple break and have all they need with them. We are keen to promote recycling and septic tank friendly fluids. Dogs are welcome on leads.
Handy for the M4 but quiet and teeming with wildlife, you can expect to see resident ponies and sheep along with wilder visitors such as red kites, buzzards, hares, deer, foxes and badgers. Check out our Facebook page for images of all that Toplands has to offer.
Just 9 miles from Bath you may like to visit the Roman Baths or one of many other attractions in the city.
Footpaths in the area are some of the best and the network adjoins the farm. Castle Combe is just a couple of miles away upon the Bybrook river footpath and has long been acclaimed as one of the prettiest villages in the Country. Lacock is similar with ancient streets of soft cotswold stone. The Abbey is atmospheric; much of the filming of Harry Potter took place here and in the picturesque village.
Two gardens worth a visit are Stourhead and the superbly preserved Capability Brown gardens of Bowood. One junction up the M4 is Steam - Museum of the Great Western Railway. Longleat Safari Park is an hour or so away. Visit Devizes or Bradford on Avon for the Kennett and Avon Canal and perhaps rent a boat!
North Wiltshire often attracts visitors who are day-tripping to ancient sites such as Stonehenge and Avebury. All around are preserved aspects of the Neolithic; both well-known and mostly unheard of.
Four miles from a choice of supermarkets and a well-stocked farm shop many of the villages have local produce and fantastic eateries. Just a mile down the lane is the acclaimed (and dog friendly) White Hart at Ford with plentiful comfortable outdoor space by the river. If it is a special occasion book yourselves dinner at Marco Pierre White's quirky Rudloe Arms or The Bybrook Restaurant at The Manor, Castle Combe.
Our family have been here for nearly a century so we may be well placed to point you in the direction of something of interest whether it be a little known long barrow or a particular treat. Craving a fry up? We know just the place. Desperate for ice cream? We recommend Marshfield where you can see the cows grazing whilst you sample this local gem.
We look forward to welcoming you.
