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 The White Hart pub (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 pub. 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.

Disappointed

Longleat Caravan Club Site
Spent a week here just recently. If you are a motorhome owner and not into travelling off site with it, then you will find yourself stuck on site with little to do. Public transport was a walk of 1.8 miles away and the road to get to it very busy. The last time we came here club members had access to the grounds for walking and cycling, but they have stopped this. It cost £38 per person to get into the grounds. You could cycle through the grounds to get the pub through the arch at the end of the long drive, but with strict instructions not to stop. We tried cycling off the grounds but there was a massive hill or too much traffic. The pubs are a bit too far to walk for non walkers. We went for a walk but ended wandering into the grounds, caught on camera and stopped by a ranger. Thankfully he was fine with us, but we got the impression there was little communication between the club site and Longleat. To make matters worse the WiFi was rubbish and contact with the outside world impossible unless you were willing to go in search of a hotspot. To be honest we were glad when the week was up and couldn’t get away quick enough.

Great location but sort the phone signal!!!!!

Longleat Caravan Club Site
Stayed for a week at the end of July. Great hard standing pitch with electric and TV signal. Plus points: A great location for visiting Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset. So many beautiful places within an hour’s drive. Lovely team who run it - we were always seeing them busily going about their jobs (mainly trying to unblock the chemical disposal point!) Great pub called the White Hart (about a 30 minute walk away) with good, home cooked food. Well stocked tourist information hut which we used regularly. Negatives: toilet blocks are tired and could use an update. I understand the gents were a bit whiffy and muddy by the afternoon. NO PHONE SIGNAL!!! I can cope without wifi or 4G for a week but come on CMAC, this is 2021! Sort it out! You have to leave the site and find a small strip of grass half way down the Lane to get any signal. No access to Longleat whatsoever unless you pay £35 each for a day ticket - which can only be booked online (not easy when there is NO PHONE SIGNAL.) Personally, I’m not prepared to pay that as the house was, rightly in the current climate, closed. But I didn’t want to see the safari park and £35 to go round the gardens is a bit steep. But we did have a wonderful week and would recommend (just make sure you are happy with being radio silent for your stay.)

Wonderful staff

Longleat Caravan Club Site
We visited with our grandchildren at Whitsun to be near the safari park. We were made very welcome by the managers who were extremely helpful. One of our nicest welcomes. Site was well looked after and we were extremely happy with how the site was complying with COVID restrictions. Well done all 👏👏👏👏

Excellent for visiting Longleat

Longleat Caravan Club Site
We stopped here for a long weekend and for visiting Longleat , the location is superb.We walked from the site into the park to do the adventure playground one day , a short walk . The site is set amongst trees and is beautiful, well spaced out.You can hear the sea lions roar and at night we heard the lions. There is a kids park to play in and a pleasant dog walking area. The facilities were spotless and the wardens very friendly. The access road to the site from the main road is narrow in places but there were plenty of passing places so no problem.

Another fabulous stay….this time in the sun! 😎

Longleat Caravan Club Site
There is nothing quite like listening to the roar of a lion or the bark of Belle the sea lion while laying in bed at Longleat C&M club site! This alone makes it a truly memorable and unique stay and if you’re visiting the safari park what could be better than a 2 minute walk from the site through what feels like your own private entrance into such a magnificent park!? The facilities were spotless as always and the staff super friendly and always willing to help! This time the sun actually shone ( not a regular thing for us! ) making it even more enjoyable than usual! Highly recommend!
