Why stay here ...

This family run caravan site offers a quiet haven in a beautiful and unspoilt part of the Wiltshire countryside. Set on the edge of the village of Great Somerford it offers a secluded spot set in a 4.5 acres field surrounded by mature trees and hedges. It is very private but also close to the village shop and pub.

The site has grass pitches set in a beautiful meadow with mains water, chemical disposal point, grey water point and recycle waste bins. You have lots of space so that you can pitch quite a long way from the next caravan. The water taps and CDP etc is also close the pitching area.

There is a well-stocked village shop (best in Wiltshire!), post office (including cash point) and village pub within 200 metres. The many footpaths and byways in the area offer stunning walks and great cycling. The river Avon runs past the village with more lovely walks through river meadows, swims and fishing tickets can be bought from the village shop. The church is a short walk as well.

  • Kingsmead Mill - walks and swimming in the river (1 mile away).

Great peaceful site

Great Somerford Caravan Site
We are currently on Great Somerford CL. It’s a lovely peaceful site with only one other van here presently . The pitches run along one edge with plenty of space between each and the remainder of the Cl is open meadow which adds to the peace and tranquility . The village of Great Somerford is literally a minutes walk , straight to a well equipped shop with lovely pub The Volunteer opposite - what more could you want. We also walked the mile to Little Somerford which was pleasant and mostly had a curb route although a very small portion was on the country road , there was also a lovely very popular pub there too. Plenty of nice walks around and Malmsbury is only 10 mins drive away . Chemical toilet , grey waste and fresh water all easy to access , no electric which suited us. Annie the owner checked on us and was very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend and will definitely be back .

What a lovely site!

Great Somerford Caravan Site
A new site which has been created with care and thought. Locked gate to both pedestrian and road access. We were so lucky to have it to ourselves and to be visited by a deer and her fawns who kept coming back and jumping around. Annie was very welcoming and easy to contact, giving clear directions. The local pub, The Volunteer Inn is strolling distance and again was very welcoming to my family with great food. We walked to Seagry Wood which are beautiful, on the way you go past all the allotments and residents gardens (all of which were amazingly well kept). Looking forward to returning, will take our bikes next time as local country roads look well suited to exploring the area.
