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.

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.

The lion (doesn't) sleep tonight!

We really enjoyed our two night 'journey breaker' stay here (17 - 19 September) and would certainly return again, especially if we were going to go for a day in the safari park. As it was, the singing sealion, roaring lions in the evening, and even the sightng of a tapir when out on a dog walk, all made the experience that bit different. The small dog walk area adjoining the site is nontheless interesting for a short leg stretch for pooch and owner. The biggest downside is that despite the beautiful surrounding countryside, you’ve got to put in some on the road leg work to access it and the road is both narrow and quite busy with fellow arriving/departing tourers and commercial vehicles. There is a lovely bridlepath to be found about half a mile on heading back along the site access road on the right hand site which leads uphill into beech, ash and oak woodlands which offered some lovely views across open countryside too. We would echo many of the previous comments made by others about the 'band system' for access to facilities, but that's as much about the thoughtfulness (or lack of) from other guests as it is site management. Facilities were clean, site well maintained, and although we got to hear some tales about feral children running amok before we arrived, it seems the wardens dealt with the situation... perhaps there's a new enclosure in the safari park...

Good holiday

We have just returned from 4 nights at Longleat. The site is clean, level and we had a choice of pitches (sun or shade). Feeding time for the sealions is a constant reminder of the closeness of Longleat Safari Park (walking access outside the main gate). Our only comment, and this is not about the staff who were very helpful and approachable, but the band system for the toilets/showers can get abused at times. We often found bands on hooks but no-one on the facilities. We appreciate that there needs to be a way of limiting the numbers during this pandemic, so more help from all of us would be a good idea.

Wonderful Break

We have just spent a lovely few days here and we found excellent cycle rides, virtually traffic free, from the site both to Frome and around the park. It is a lovely, peaceful site and the wardens were very helpful. We will definitely come back once the safari park is back to full open.

Forest site

Slightly disappointed with the location of this site. As avid cyclists we would not consider cycling from this site as once off the approach road, the roads are extremely busy and used by heavy goods vehicles. Therefore to explore the area you need to use your car. Be aware the approach road to the site is very narrow in places and used by farm and safari park vehicles. The entrance to the site is slightly hidden and be careful you don’t drive to the safari entrance site marked by the re traffic light. Very quiet site, apart for the barking sea lions which added to the atmosphere. Shower block was reasonably clean. Band system to use toilets and showers seemed to work well. Pitches were spacious.

Lovely stay

We had a lovely 4 night stay to start our holiday off. The site was very well kept, facilities always very clean although the band system on the hooks was not a great system, people adding bands on bands! Lovely to hear the sea lions and some lion roars in the evenings. Shame you can’t walk through the grounds of Longleat next to the site without a ticket. Cycled to Frome although it was a tough 12 miles but our 14 and 10 year old made it despite the hills!
