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.

Lovely spot - great views

Totteridge Farm
Really lovely site with great views and easy access to extremely beautiful surroundings. Super spot. The only minor point was that (unfortunately for us) it rained very hard just before and during our stay and the grass was very long. The site was wet and the car was slipping as we reversed in. The long grass did make it difficult filling the water and using the aquaroll etc as everything was so wet. There were also lots of nettles all around the water taps, electric points, etc. I did mention this to Caroline who said there was a reason that they were unable to cut the grass so I guess we were just a bit unlucky. Otherwise a lovely stay.

Lovely Cl .. give it a try

Totteridge Farm
We stayed 2 nights at Totteridge farm nice and easy to find, informal pitches with electric and water. Fantastic views overs the fields and hills and very peaceful. I think you would really struggle to find a nicer better organised and well kept CL & the owners are very helpful. Definitely one to visit.

Owners couldn't be more helpful

Totteridge Farm
We arrived last Tuesday for a 3 night camp. The forecast was for extreme temperatures. We had hoped for some shade.... We were booked to be off grid and our arrival instructions directed us to the secluded field at the bottom of the Camping Pod field. In normal circumstances we would have been thrilled with this lovely off grid peaceful location BUT there wasn't any shade to pitch in or to access nearby. Caroline had given us lots of arrival instructions which were clear and precise, ending with a please don't hesitate to phone if we needed anything on arrival. I rang and left a message asking if, given the extreme forecast, was there anywhere else we could camp with some shade... While we were waiting for her to get back to us we wandered around the site to see if we could see a suitable spot. It was fairly clear that shade was at a premium and not surprisingly those there before us had already made the most of what was available. We had decided we would just have to make the best of what ever shade we could by positioning our from our van and awning carefully. Then Caroline drove up with a raft of suggestions; they could lend a gazebo that her husband would come and put up for us or we could possibly camp in the woods...it was off grid but so peaceful. She then drove us down to the woods in her 4X4 so we could decide whether it was accessible for our van (sadly it was a little too 'off-road' for our relatively new VW T6...we baulked at the deep tyre ruts in track) although it looked a beautiful spot. On our way down to the woods Caroline had noticed a patch of shade next to the track that she said we were welcome to use instead. We had a lovely 3 nights camping in this 'impromptu' site with an amazing view...we even felt we possibly had the best pitch on the farm. Caroline couldn't have been more generous with her time and thought - especially given she was a very busy farmer's wife in the middle of harvesting. Thank you! We found the farm a great location to cycle along the Kennet and Avon Canal (minutes away by bike). With interesting destinations in both directions and plenty of pubs/cafes for food and drink...although these were less available travelling east... We would happily return to Totteridge Farm and recommend it whole heartedly.

Perfect location to introduce our nervous rescue dog to caravanning - a real gem of a site!

Totteridge Farm
After taking in a very nervous and unpredictable rescue dog in November 2021, we were beginning to wonder if we'd ever be able to take her away caravanning with us, and kennels were not an option. We thought we'd go for a test run near to home and found the Totteridge Farm site using the "Adults Only" and "Dog Friendly" search criteria. The site can only be booked directly through contacting Caroline Wells who could not have been more helpful and understanding to our situation and offered us sole use of a field with power and water that sounded perfect for what we wanted. It was a short journey from home to the site and the directions to the pitch were spot on. We found the ""What Three Words" app to be particularly useful in helping to navigate to the site as using the postcode was not recommended. We met Caroline as we arrived and were welcomed and pointed to our pitch hook-up and water point in the corner of a recently mown field on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Power and water were the only facilities that we needed on the site and we were pleasantly surprised to find out we also had excellent mobile phone reception at the site which was useful for a trialling remote working whilst we were there. The field was ideal for us and our dogs with plenty of space to play on a long lead without distractions and our rescue soon settled down and realised that the caravan and awning were going to be her new temporary home. It wasn't long before she started to relax and enjoy the adventure. We stayed 2 nights and focused mainly on the dogs but did manage to get some walks in around the local area and to the local pub. We were made to feel hugely welcome by Caroline and Muttley and we felt more like house-guests than paying caravanners during our stay. An extremely peaceful and well-kept site that was a perfect location to conduct a trial run with our dogs. It was a success and we are now looking forward to going further afield in due course. However, we both decided that Totteridge is a site we'll definitely be going back to.

Absolute Gem

Totteridge Farm
We have been coming to Totteridge Farm for a number of years now and both my wife and I absolutely love it. The welcome you get from Caroline and Muttley is fab. They are such a lovely couple. The views from the ouches are stunning, especially at this time of year as you sit and relax whilst looking across the sea of rape in full blossom. The blue sky above it gives you a sobering thought of a country in distress at the moment. There are some lovely pubs just a short walk or bike ride away. Marlborough is just down the road and makes a great day out. This place really is a little Gem and we will keep coming back. They keep the place in great condition and if you wanted something a little different, they also have Pods on the upper field for rent too which are fabulous. Definitely recommended!! Thanks guys
