Why stay here ...

Longleat Club Site in Warminster is one of the network's most unique locations - where else in the UK or Europe can you hear lions roaring at night from the comfort of your bed? Set in beautiful parkland, the caravan park is located in the midst of the lovely Longleat Estate. The area's famous Safari Park, first to be opened outside Africa, is literally on the doorstep of the Longleat Club Site.

Please note that Longleat are not able to accept dogs within the grounds or attractions. There are other beautiful walks also available from the Club side of the road that members can enjoy freely and at their own leisure.

There are several pubs within a 2 mile radius (a lovely walk on a summers evening) and a short drive will bring you to the lively towns of Bath and Bristol. The Roman, Regency and 20th century Bath being a special favourite for visitors. Still famous as a spa, you can take to the waters and literally soak yourself in history. With winding streets and pretty listed buildings, Frome is about 15 minutes from the site. Several fascinating nearby sites of historic interest include Stonehenge, Avebury Neolithic monument and Lacock Abbey.

Directions

Follow sat nav to Longleat Tavern ( Postcode BA12 7PH) then follow the brown tourist signs to the site. Alternatively, turn left off the A36 Warminster bypass (Salisbury - Frome) at the roundabout onto the A362 (signposted Frome). In about 0.5 mile at the roundabout take the A362 (third exit) to Frome. After 2.25 miles turn into Lane End next to the Longleat Tavern public house. Continue past the Safari Park Entrance and Stalls Farm before turning left again. The site entrance is 200 metres on left. This is the only permitted entry route for caravans and motorhomes. Please note that estate routes may change in the case of a special event. Note: When using sat nav for directions to the site, please use the postcode BA12 7PH ( pub at Lane End on the A362), and follow the brown direction signs to site. If coming from the Warminster direction on the A362 please do not attempt to take the first left after the Royal Oak pub as this lane is far too narrow.

Speed limits?

Having spent a really nice and hot weekend at Longleat, I would like to know if cars are limited and rightly so to 5miles per hour, how can the state allow youngsters to tide around on electric scooters at speeds approaching 15 miles per hour.? Surely a danger to the rider, but more a danger to campers and caravans, they are silent and very fast,. Who would pay for any damage to property if this occurred.? I have rated the cleanliness average due to minors.(I only presume) think that loo paper belongs on the floor and non flushing, need I say no more. Overall a really nice site, very close to the safari park and entertainment area. Needs the staff to be aware of speed limits is not just for cars.

In need of some TLC

Just spent 4 nights at the lovely Longleat site with our 12 year old Granddaughter. We had a relaxing time on site but a very hectic time in the Park. The site is very well managed by the wardens but we felt the shower cubicles in particular could do with a bit of an upgrade especially concerning the water pressure. Staff were very helpful and gave us a very warm welcome on our arrival. The hanging baskets and tubs of glorious, golden yellow begonias were a beautiful sight for our very tired eyes(a six hour journey). To gain entry to the park members must purchase a ticket. You cannot just stroll in as was the case when we were last there in 2012. Pre-booking online using the Club's 20% discount and upgrading to a 2 or 5 day ticket makes the cost more reasonable. Our 5 day ticket for the three of us cost us just under £150 but, we made good use of the park and visited different attractions to suit us and we weren't rushing around to visit everything. All in all we had a very good time and more importantly our Granddaughter thought it was wonderful.

Disappointed

We were very disappointed that the Longleat estate have changed the goalposts. Caravanners used to be able to freely walk into the grounds, have a coffee (at a discount) and generally enjoy the environment all as part of being on the site. This also meant that you could walk or cycle up the drive to the Bath Arms (about 1 mile) which is a lovely pub. Now, to do any of that, you need to purchase a days pass or (to get to the pub) a six mile drive. Consequently, the site has become an extremely isolated bog standard club site with restricted access and not many facilities. Such a shame. We won't be going back

Surprised by site as a older couple with no kids...

I was a bit hesitant when my wife suggested staying here...just the two of us (and I'm no spring chicken) I thought this would be a site for young families - but we loved it. Quiet site in a lovely setting with great walks - of course we did Longleat which was great and brought back memories - the highlight for us was the anteaters...mum giving her (not now so) young one a piggy back was hilarious...Site staff were friendly, helpful and clearly work hard to maintain the standard of the site. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back soon.

Great site & good access to the Longleat estate

During the summer break I drop the caravan off at this site, so that my wife and children can spend some time away. We've done this before and the children link up with other children and (respectfully) play in the central green area, games such as cricket, frisby, kites, hide and seek etc. Unfortunately during this years visit the central green has now been utilised for tent camping, meaning that the central play area is in essence unable to be used or family activities. The children were advised not to play cricket (play set with a tennis ball) near to the caravans, despite the only caravan near to them was our own!! It's such a shame that these play areas are being lost, as there are far few areas for young children to play in a safe environment!! I'm a big fan of the Caravan & Motorhome club, I think they do a lot of things extremely well, but unfortunately I feel that this is a poor decision!!
