Directions

Follow sat nav to White Hart ( 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 White Hart 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 (White Hart 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.

Great site for events being held at Longleat

We stayed here over the New Year, where we had also booked tickets to go to the Festival of Light (which was a really good day/evening event for all the family, by the way). All facilities were to the usual good CC standard, and access to Longleat Safari Park is a very easy short walk. Site is usually quite quiet (although some noise in the early evening from the Festival of Light event, but only until about 7pm). There are some excellent cycle routes around the outskirts of the estate, which gives another day of activity. All in all, a very pleasant stay!

New Year at Longleat

We saw in the New Year at Longleat and it continues to be a fantastic site, well looked after and clean. We've been a few times before but this time saw more of the surrounding Wiltshire countryside and a few nice country pubs! I especially want to thank again the friendly wardens for the effort they put into the New Year party which was lovely and very thoughtful of them. There's no doubt we'll be back as this is one of the best sites in the country.

Longleat

This was our first time on cc site. We were met by very friendly wardens who helped with our enquirers. I also liked the proper showers rather than press button operators. Site was very clean. We arrived with motorhome full of young kids & they thought the park area was great fun. I thought it was one of the best parks we have been to. I hope all cc sites are like this. We have told relations about this site & they are hoping to try it out next summer we will probably come back with them. Thank-you once again to the friendly wardens.

Nice Site

We stayed at Longleat during September 2016 as one of several Caravan Club sites we were trying for the first time. The site was not too busy and finding a pitch was straightforward. Obviously the site is in the grounds of the Logleat Estate, so it is very handy for that particular attraction. The facilities are the usual spotless CC standard, so no complaints there. My only criticism is the rather long, narrow access road which goes through part of what appears to be a farm yard. Those few yards of farm yard left the front of our clean van covered in mud, which we had to wash off on arrival. I would not want to meet another van coming the other way, on parts of the access road, as passing could be difficult. The hardstands are probably the hardest ground I have ever had to drive a peg in to. Even with rock pegs and a large lump hammer, putting the awning up was a very difficult job. I've never had this issue before during 40+ years of caravanning, is this a common problem on Caravan Club hardstands? Overall though, a nice site which has some lovely trees and views.

A real gem of a site

We stayed for 8 nights in December during the Longleat light festival and what a treat it was. The location could not be more convenient just outside the entrance and only a few minutes walk to a he house. The site is very well cared for with the facilities in excellent state of cleanliness and comfort, despite the sub zero temperatures the showers, toilets, washrooms and dishwashing areas were always warm and a pleasure to use. First class and highly recommended for staying and touring this area. P.S. as the managers for directions for the walk to the Heavens Gate; you won't be disappointed.
