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.

Follow sat nav to The 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 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.

longleat camping

First time stayed on the site as new to caravaning, booked back in February (before even getting our van, as always go to the festival of light due to my birthday being in dec,) having read reviews so seen the site from previous visits to longleat, thought we'd give it a go, and we were very pleased we did, lovely warm smiley welcome in reception, everything explained as to where we could pitch and how to position caravan on the pitch itself, also what facilities were open and times, the pitch was large so we could have our awning up on 1 side of caravan and park the car the other, nice level pitch too, we parked close to a shower block so handy to the water and waste facilities which were clean and tidy, the wi-fi onsite you do have to pay for, but we have our own so didnt use the onsite 1, signal for both phone and our wi-fi was not too good but you are in a valley so that will block some signals out, cant say about tv reception as didnt set mine up, will definitely be booking to stay there again whether going into longleat or not, if your going into longleat once you have done the drive through you an park you car back at the caravan and walk into the main area and other attractions as its a 5 min walk into the main square from the site, just show your ticket or as it is now your email conformation number to the member of longleat staff in the little hut by barrier and you can walk in and out taking the stress out of finding parking in the car park and not having anything happen to you car while in there,

Another excellent visit

Visited the site a couple of days ago to see Santa at longleat. We have been to the site many times over the years and as usual it was great. Booking in went well, missed having the shop there but completely understand why but will be grateful when it’s back. The biggest problem is the WiFi, most places are free but we still have to pay and even then it’s not brilliant. It may be ok for some people to say they don’t really want it but when you have children it’s very handy. Not just for screens but what tree is that? what bug is that? what else is on?. We use it for all sorts of things and it should be free and a far better signal. Other than that we love the site, to see the kids faces when the lions roar at night is wonderful. The wardens are really helpful, I am new to having a caravan after having a Motorhome for years so when the warden asked if we were ok or needed help my daughter and I were really grateful!

Lovely Site

We stayed here a couple of days ago, in order to visit Longleat’s Land of Light. Check in was safe, efficient and the warden was very friendly and helpful. I cannot recommend too highly.

First visit to Longleat site.

Visited this wonderful site in September, for a break and change of scenery. Impressed with the pitches and the friendly wardens who worked extremely hard to keep everything clean and safe for everyone. The site has many trees and open spaces and we felt so relaxed and welcome. We will definitely be returning to this site next year.

A site that is a roaring success

Ideally located for many North Somerset and Wiltshire attractions. Access is pretty reasonable but some care along the lanes is needed as cars cut through to a very close access road for Longleat Safari. We were there in bad weather and suggest care is taken on where to pitch if its acorn falling season!! Quite noisy when they land in the night. Plent of alternative pitches. Once experienced it is a lesson learnt!! Staff on site very helpful and supportive. The current electric hook-up posts are "old style" so you need to insert AND then TWIST clockwise. Quite a lot of us made the same mistake. In the night you can hear the lions roar and that in itself makes you glad they are locked in their compounds. Great for walking to parts of the longleaf and a few minutes to the main safari event. Overall great site. Great staff. Great experience.
