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.

Great site 👍🏻

Having just returned home from 3 brilliant nights here, we reckon this to be one of the best Caravan Club sites we’ve visited. - The location to Longleat House & Safari Park was the main reason for us booking, but the site itself is so tranquil, clean and well maintained and the wardens are so very helpful and knowledgeable that we’ve added this to our ‘visit again’ list. - We’ve actually booked to return again in a few weeks. There’s an excellent dog walking area here, which is sadly lacking in so many other Caravan & Motorhome Club sites. (I find that quite strange) The only downside of this site if you’re a motorhome owner with no tow car (as we are), that the site is a bit remote with no nearby bus service, however the recommended walks more than compensate for this as does the Longleat attractions. —-Definitely a 5 star site rating from us—-

Great site for a visit to Longleat

Stayed here for three nights from 2nd October to visit Longleat House and Safari Park. Access to site is about two miles down a narrow lane with passing places. There are Club signs along the road to point you in the right direction. Well laid out with spacious pitches. Everything was as you would expect from a Club Site. TV booster point in EHU. Due to the time of year only one set of facilities were open, but that was fine as the site was far from busy. Just a 50yd walk from the site entrance takes you to the back entrance of Longleat. The only down side to the site is that there is nothing else of interest close by. The excellent informtion room gives walks in the area, directions to pubs and supermarkets in Frome or Wincanton. Thoroughly recommended.

Another lovely stay

Been coming here for many years, and it just gets better and better, now I’m on my own with a small Campervan I find the wardens so helpful and accommodating, especially when I had problems with my vans gas bottles, and a friend with her water drainage system, the site is all you would expect from a five star Caravan Club location, and out of season is peaceful and relaxed, but the icing on the cake is service given with a smile 😊

Perfect Site

What a lovely peaceful site. We could not hear any noise apart from birds singing. The site itself is very well laid out, the pitches are a very good size. The facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean. It is very nice to have a shower where you don't have to keep pressing buttons. The staff were very welcoming and helpful.

Nice site, limited access to anything other than Longleat.

The Bank holiday was our first visit to the site, it wasn't full which should have told us something.. The site itself is clean and well laid out. We are new to this clamping this year, however, this is the only site we have stayed at where noise on the site was intrusive. There is another review recently about noise, and I agree fully with it. There was a child on a bike riding around with a siren on, non stop... I full accept children will play, and we have 2, however, I didn't at all, ever see a parent with this child, he was all over the site, and generally a pain to be frank. Our neighbours only had one volume setting, Loud, and there children who were older were again louder trying to compete with their parents. At 2230 at night when they are the only van to be heard enough is enough... There was no sign on life from staff at all, and there weren't seen on site, other than doing jobs. We purchased WiFi for 24 hours, to see what it was like, it was so bad, we spoke to the staff and as nice as they were we got told there were two many people on it... Well thats helpful ! So we paid for something which didn't work... We paid for 3 nights, we left after 1, would we go back, unlikely, this is the worst site we have stayed on thus so far... Do not get me wrong, it is far from being a bad site, however, unless your visiting Longleat, (We weren't) we found it lacking in offering anything at all... Staff are very friendly, and the site is clean and the toilets etc are up to those on other clubs sites. Ideal for Longleat, but maybe not for you if your not attending Longleat.
