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.

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.

Still a superb site.

This was our 3rd.visit in under a year, and as always the site didn’t disappoint in any way. Very friendly and helpful wardens, very clean toilet facilities, excellent dog walking areas & very well maintained grounds. The site is a bit remote if you’re a motor homer with no tow car (as we are) but for us that’s no problem. We’ve booked yet another visit there in September as part of another of our ‘Road Tour’ type holidays.

Great site but....

We went yet again to Longleat C&MH site with our grandaughter on our annual trip. The site is clean, tidy & the pitches have lots of space. The wardens are really friendly & welcoming. As many have said being so close to the Safari Park is fantastic & listening to the animals a joy. However I haven't given it 5 star ratings due to a few niggling issues. There is a small play park with a few pieces of equipment all very nicely done. On their info leaflet it says there is a field put aside for ball games etc but when we went to play tents were now on that field so it was impossible for us to play there & playing ball games amongst the caravans is a no, no. There are two toilets & facilities blocks either end of the park cleaned daily however the one nearest us is shut from 11:30-12:30 daily for cleaning. As we have to leave at 12:00 it means that when you want to do that last minute loo trip you have to walk to the other side of the park, not good if you have mobility issues. I don't understand why they don't clean it between 12 & 1 so its between people having left & those arriving. The park is a lovely place during the week. We stayed Monday to Saturday & were glad to be going as Friday night it was rammed & somehow that is when there is always some people who insist on playing their music loud & talking loudly until gone midnight. Not somewbere I'd stay at a weekend but fantastic for a 6 day break.

Nice site

We stayed on the site for nearly a week, hard working friendly wardens who keep the site clean and tidy. It was very busy over the weekend and the facilities were pushed to the limits, had to queue for the showers. However once the pressure eased after the weekend it was fine, though would mention a note to the club officials - even though the wardens kept the facilities spotlessly clean the club should consider an upgrade, cubicles small especially the benches. We were unfortunate to have limited choice of pitches when we arrived and chose one that we found out later in the day (once we had set up) to be opposite 3 families all together, children running backwards and forwards to each others vans, children and adults shouting to each others vans, adults sitting outside in the evening then moving into awning until past midnight. I don't want to spoil peoples holidays but do wish the club would cater for adults only (maybe adult only areas especially in large sites) who have come away for a quiet holiday as well as the families who want to play together. The Safari park is 'the other side of the hedge' so the sea lions are heard daily and its a very short walk into the park. The club members have a discounted entry fee which is good value.

Lovely Site,But.....................

We recently stopped at Longleat for four nights and found it an excellent well kept site but for one factor. Many pitches are greatly overhung by trees which are in severe need of cutting back,they block out the sun,leave pitches damp after rain and deposit leaves,sap etc.on vans. They need to be done at some time or the place will be a jungle,so why not now whilst they are "manageable". In my opinion they spoil an otherwise cracking site. The wardens are fantastic and work hard to keep the site clean and tidy,well up to CMC standards. Of course the main attraction is Longleat itself which is well worth a two day pass using CMC discount.

Grandaughter's treat.

It's time again to visit Longleat with the grand daughter so the Caravan club site is the obvious choice. Even though it might be easy to rely on it's access to the safari Park, the site maintains the high quality of services and amenities that we expect from the Club. I have marked down a point on "peace and quiet" , this is purely to reflect the reality that a "dawn chorus" from the sea lions can be quite noisy. For us this all adds to the adventure, but it may be an issue for very light sleepers, 'though obviously beyond anyone's control. A great club site with it's unique situation adjacent to an amazing attraction.
