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.

Lovely, great staff, fantastic location

We stayed here in late July with our 9 year old granddaughter. Excellent lovely site, staff were very friendly & helpful, great location with a 50 yard walk into Longleat which enabled us to come back to our motorhome for lunch & then return to the Safari Park. Great site for families and it was quiet and peaceful. Our granddaughter loved riding her bike around. She also enjoyed the free nature trail. You can hear the seals from Longleat from the club site. Would highly recommend.

Enjoyed our stay

We had a enjoyable time at the site, wardens really good, however I do agree with the other reviewer who commented on other visitors who don't keep their kids in check. Yes its a family site but that does not mean let your kids go and pester the other caravaners. We booked outside school holiday time to avoid kids and we wont be the only ones to do so. For us, Longleat is a perfect base for visiting familly that live in that part of the country and is a excellent site, its just unfortunate that some of the other visitors have no respect for others, I know you can get that anywhere you go.

Great site but....

Stayed here for 4 nights with our grandaughter. Its a great family site & the facilities are stunningly clean. The wardens are so kind & friendly BUT they should walk around at least once a day to check that rules are being kept. I say this as down a couple pitches & opposite us a van with 3 cars arrived, parked everywhere. Then they allowed their dog to just roam around & it weeded up caravans & awnings. Their toddler twins were not watched & started to fiddle with aquarolls on someone else's van. To cap it all they sat up to well after midnight. Had the wardens walked around they would have seen the cars & the unteathered dog. The people next to them asked them to put the dog on the lead & they were abusive back. Scared everyone. Luckily we left the next day. Having said that we would return to the site.

First class !

Just returned home: First visit and will definitely go again. Perfect location for Longleat - make good use of the club discounts! Very helpful staff & excellent information room.First class facilities. We arrived after 1pm as requested on site and it is very narrow in places on the approach rd and towing a caravan I would not like to meet another 'tourer' coming the other way as there are few passing places. Excellent stay.
