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.

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.

Relaxing Site

We have visited this site many times as it is an easy getaway for us. The site offers everything you need for a peaceful relaxing stay. The facilities are spotless and the grounds are well tended offering a wide choice of pitches. Staff obviously work hard to maintain standards. The site is close to lots of interesting places to explore. The proximity to Longleat Safari Park and its attractions will appeal to families. We will continue to visit and enjoy this beautiful site

Fantastic Easter Family Break

This is a lovely site. I recently visited with my husband, a nearly 3 year old and an 18 month old. The site is very clean and well looked after and the staff were all friendly and polite. We visited Longleat on a 2 day pass which i think to be honest we could have done 3 days - the safari and animals are amazing and the boat trip is a must. The play area is amazing inside Longleat and my eldest son would of happily had a full day in there, if you have young children there is also a fantastic smaller play area for them. There is not much around to eat at and the food at Longleat is very expensive so i advice Picnics in the day and cooking your own food at night. Also when you are visiting Longleat we did the boat trip first thing in the morning as it gets very busy and then the safari later on in the day, all the animals were awake and walking around. We did go through the monkeys and were very lucky but they do tend to pull things off your car, we saw two cars reverse sensors being pulled off. All in all fantastic site and would revisit again in a heartbeat.

Another Great Stay!

We stayed here last weekend and from the minute we arrived the team of Wardens were welcoming, friendly and efficient, making our stay a great one from start to finish! We will stay again, as it is a great site, and perfect for Longleat. Dog walk on site, but can't take Dogs into Longleat, Longleats rules not the sites. One draw back we have found is the box to put your fob key into on exit is very low, ideal if you are in a Car & Caravan but, if you are in a Motor home it is impossible to lean down and place it in the letter box as it ideally could do with a height extension on the top to make it easier. Not a major issue, just a pain, wouldn't put us off staying at the site.

Brilliant Site

Our first visit to Longleat was over Christmas and New Year and we have returned again for their opening this Spring. The site itself is peaceful and spacious. The pitches are a good size for our 8ft caravan and large awning. You actually can hear the lions roar and sea lions barking. Longleat is one of our favorite sites. The Wardens, Gail and Mark, are the most lovely and helpful people. We have booked to come back another four times this year and the main reason is to see them as they make us feel welcome. The facilities on site are always clean and the showers are lovely and hot. Our dog loves the site too. The site is close to Frome and Warminster for shops and eateries. It’s fair to say Longleat is a credit to the club.

A quiet and peaceful site.

In the main we enjoyed our stay at Longleat. The site was virtually empty throughout which added to the relaxed feel of the stay. If the site was full I suspect that the toilet blocks may be inadequate at peak times. Access to the site is an issue. Always ensure that you follow the directions as per the sites handbook. Sat-navs may well direct you down a very narrow series of roads which the handbook warn against using. I would stress the importance of taking the advised route only. One thing that members should be aware of is that if a refill gas bottle is needed then bank cards are not accepted at Longleat, cash only. I am unsure how widespread this is throughout other club sites but it was the first I knew of it. I needed a gas bottle refill and as I did not know the rule I turned up at the office with bank card in hand. I was not trusted to take the full bottle to my caravan and return with the cash because the warden had 'been caught out like that before'. If I was leaving the site the next day then possibly there may have been some risk but I was not due to leave for another four days. That lack of trust soured the stay.
