Why stay here ...

Set in the Vale of Pewsey, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in rural Wiltshire, Caroline and Anthony Wells look forward to welcoming you to Totteridge Farm. The family moved to Totteridge in 1877 and Anthony is the fifth generation to farm here. There has been a CL on the farm for over 40 years and, as our regular guests know, there are many reasons to stay here!

Our adult-only, dog friendly site has sweeping views over to Martinsell Hill, an Iron Age hill fort (and also the third highest hill in Wiltshire). On a warm summer's evening, the sunsets can be spectacular. We recommend that you sit back, enjoy a glass of something chilled, watch and relax! At certain times of the year, you can watch out for shooting stars in the clear night sky.

There is great walking and cycling direct from the site, with dozens of public footpaths and bridleways around the Vale and also a little further afield, on Salisbury Plain. All offer lovely walks, as long or as short as you want to make them. Savernake Forest is just six miles away and the Kennet & Avon Canal borders the farm, providing excellent walking, cycling or canoeing.

The Victorian Crofton Beam Engines (in steam on most bank holidays), Wilton Windmill and the flight of canal locks at Caen Hill in Devizes all give an insight into our industrial heritage. There is a good choice of country houses and gardens to explore, such as Bowood House near Calne, Wilton House and Heale House near Salisbury, Abbey Court Gardens in Malmesbury, Stourhead House near Mere and quaint Lacock with its Abbey.

While Stonehenge is 15 miles away, we recommend a visit to Avebury, with its ancient stone circles, manor house gardens and village. While you're in the vicinity, visit Kennet Long Barrow and Silbury Hill too.

The lovely cathedral city of Salisbury is 45 minutes away, with a bustling Saturday market and plenty of places to eat and drink. We recommend a visit to the cathedral and, if you don't mind steps and have a head for heights, the Tower Tour allows you to experience truly awe-inspiring medieval structural engineering. The Close is also home to Mompesson House and Arundells, both open to the public.

There's no shortage of dog-friendly pubs within an easy walk, cycle or drive. Pewsey (2 miles) has a supermarket, pubs and various takeaways. Local markets are held in Marlborough (Saturdays) and Devizes (Thursdays) and both towns should be able to supply all your needs. There are some great 'coffee & cake' stops, too, as well as various farms shops and garden centres.

Wiltshire will take you far from the madding crowd of other tourist hotspots and offers the best of rural Britain. Totteridge Farm is the perfect base from which to explore this wonderful county, or a place to simply sit back and relax.

Peace, Glorious Peace!

Lovely, farm based CL with beautiful views and rolling fields. We had a lovely stay here, including a cohort of Guinea Fowl, all cackling for their next piece of bread! Caroline, who ran the site, looked after us during our stay and provided useful tips on local pubs and surrounding walks. I can recommend a walk along the banks of the Avon & Kennet canal for starters.

Wonderful, tranquil CL

Totteridge Farm is a fabulous CL. Each pitch has plenty of room with space to park so you can get the best view of the amazing surrounding fields and hills. It’s a really relaxed site. The area is full of quintessential English villages with thatched cottages and great pubs. We stayed four nights and did two long day walks and one day cycling into Marlborough and exploring the villages around there. We are keen walkers and have just scratched the surface so will be back to explore further walks. Very well run site, we’re looking forward to our next visit.

Absolute Gem

This is just one of the best ...I don't really want to share it but that would be so mean! A wonderful adult only CL on a working farm run by two very passionate hardworking folk Caroline and Anthony who couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Excellent location , stunning views, lovely walks, easy cycle rides and two great local pubs easily accessible via the canal tow path. Could only stay two nights as on our way back but it felt like five - so relaxed and chilled. Bought eggs and some stunning wine to take home. Thank you guys we loved it and will be back ASAP!

Beautiful location

Just got home from a lovely (but wet) weekend at Totteridge Farm CL, Pewsey. Sun, showers, heavy rain - we had it all - but Caroline was so welcoming & helpful - even offering to drop us to viewpoints if we wanted. The weather forecast wasn’t good though (unfortunately accurate) so we settled for lovely walks along the Kennet & Avon canal. Friday into Pewsey Wharf & Pewsey, beer in a pub garden, collect a takeaway & taxi back. Saturday to the delightful Wootten Rivers & a lovely lunch at the village (thatched) pub. Horses in the fields, buzzards & red kites overhead, a flock of guinea fowl wandering past, bunnies munching next to the van at dusk, cuckoos & owls could be heard, and a shooting star was seen. Picnic tables for every pitch, fresh eggs and farm wine available as well as all the normal services. Even camping pods in the next field for friends/family that don’t have a van. Highly recommended!

Peaceful

What an amazingly site, this is our 2nd stay at this CL site, Caroline welcomed us with open arms, made us very welcome, peaceful, pretty and plenty of walks especially by the Avon and Kennet Canal, on arrival on May Day Bank Holiday the winds were terrific and stayed with us throughout the night, we had a lovely text from Caroline in the farm house checking we were ok , and to ring her if any problems even though the night. THANKYOU Caroline, will see you again, Linda, Vince and our sheltie Shadow 👍🏼👍🏼
