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 touring in Wiltshire. 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.

This site was our Winter Wonderland

Longleat provided the perfect winter break for us over new year 2019/20, but it's not it's proximity to the safari, although that is brilliant. It's not the fact that you are serenaded each night by either the bark of the sea lions, the howl of the wolves or roar of the lions, although that is awesome. It's not the fact that you have a brilliant view of the fireworks on new years eve, although that is spectacular. It's about the whole experience and for us the site you're staying on is integral to that and Longleat C&MC didn't disappoint. It always starts and ends with the wardens and here they are so friendly, helpful and attentive. The grounds and pitches are immaculately cared for and the facilities spotlessly clean. All the service points were well maintained, clean and in working order. We just couldn't find fault with anything. We enjoyed out stay so much and the hospitality extended to us by the team on site, that we're heading back for Easter and for sure some more trips after that too.

Amazing Christmas and New Year in the caravan

Booked into Longleat for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year 2019. We were greeted with a warm welcome from the wardens Gail and Mark. It was lovely to see the lights in Longleat plus all the animals. It was lovely that the wardens put on a New Year's Eve party in the family room so we could see in the New Year with other fellow caravanners. Overall all 10/10

Christmas with the Lions

We have stayed many times at Longleat and are always impressed by the way the site is cared for by the wardens who work really hard to maintain excellent standards. We love listening to the animals in the safari park. At Christmas the wardens really go the extra mile inviting members to join them in celebrating the holiday and seeing in the new year. The proximity of the site to Longleat House and at this time of year, the Festival of Light make this site a magical experience for young and old alike. We look forward to returning in the new season.
