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.

Directions

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.

Peace and relaxation

We have just spent a week on this site and found it very peaceful, even when full. It is a little remote and walking or cycling from site does involve some hills. The walk up the road to The White Hart is well worth it. Excellent food, drinks and staff and very reasonably priced. We also tried The Royal Oak - again an uphill walk and slightly further, but much prefer the White Hart. We pre bought tickets for the safari park and used the entrance next to the site to walk into the park. We paid the £8 per person for the safari bus as we didn’t want to take our Motorhome in. We would recommend paying that little extra, whatever your vehicle. The bus has air filters fitted to most seats and has limited capacity - only 8 people downstairs when we’re there. We had to wear masks and felt totally safe. The driver gave so much interesting information and knew where all the animals were. We saw so much more than we would have done driving ourselves through - and there’s no risk of damage to your vehicle. A great day out just disappointed the House isn’t open yet. Frome is a 5 mile cycle ride from site, again hilly but worth a visit.

lovely, peaceful, tranquil site

this was our 2nd visit to the site, 1st time was last december to visit the safari and festival of lights for my birthday, loved it so much even though only stayed 2 nights that time, we decided to book again for this year for a little longer, we booked straight after returning from the 1st visit then lockdown happened and we had fingers crossed that our stay could go ahead, which thankfully it did, the welcome you get is warm and very friendly with pitches explained as to parking on them and pitching awnings and parking your car, also asked if any assistance is needed, covid restrictions explained in full as to what was open and useable and asked to ether fill in a track and trace form or use the app to check in and hand back if using the form, once you decide on your pitch you go back to reception to recieve a fob for the gate, which has been cleaned and sterilised, The site is lovely and clean and pitches are spacious, with ample space between pitches, we stayed by the lake so could hear sea lions clearly, and in the evening the lions and wolves, if your an early riser like myself you can hear them around 4am too, On this stay we went out and about the area as stonehenge is only 30 mis away, with frome 10-15 mins where there is a sainsburys and asda, shepton mallet is about 25 mins where a tescos is Already booked for another stay in december this year

Beautiful Location

This site is a long way from anything other than the safari park (Longleat) and it would be easy to think that there is no point going unless you want to visit the park - but you would be wrong. Upon arrival, I always ask about bus routes so that we can avoid driving off again. Unfortunately we were told that it was 'not a very motorhome-friendly site'. And no other advice or support was offered. So I am going to help the Caravan and Motorhome Club be inclusive and helpful...This is what you can do: The nearest bus stop is on the main road that you turn off (with the pub on the corner which I think was called The White Hart) and so the walk is not really for people who do not like walking - but if you enjoy a walk, then the day out by bus is an absolute treat because the countryside you walk through is incredibly beautiful. Downside is the large tractors we came across on the road - going in and out of fields - the roads are narrow in places, so allow plenty of time to get to the bus stop. The bus goes to Warminster on the opposite side to the pub and to Frome from the bus stop in front of the pub. This is a country service and not too frequent so you will need to check times on the timetable and with the bus drivers. The bus we caught to Frome first, arrived at the stop about 9.45am ish. Aim for that. The bus to Warminster turns around in Warminster and comes back. Frome is lovely - quaint with shops and cafes (I can strongly recommend the River House Cafe and Black Swan Arts - healthy food and lovely courtyard setting. Explore Frome - there are lots of shops away from the obvious centre - climb the cobbled streets - and there is a train station. We caught the bus where we got off and took the bus straight through to Warminster - This is not as 'pretty' as Frome but it has a Waitrose. We did a bit of shopping and got a taxi back to the site. Very easy. Taxi cost us £16. We were happy to pay - we hadn't had parking to pay for a large motorhome and we had enjoyed our bus rides. Overall an absolute lovely day. Enjoy!

Another Fantastic Stay

We've visited Longleat Club site many times and it never fails to impress. Even with the COVID restrictions in place, it felt as near normal as could possibly be during our long bank holiday weekend away. The wardens Gail and Mark take great pride in the site which is evident throughout, with well maintained grounds and pitches, spotlessly clean facilities along with tidy and well kept infrastructure. They are supported by their team, all providing wonderful customer service and a can do attitude. Nothing is a problem and you feel very welcome indeed. The site is well situated for a visit to Longleat Safari either on foot through the pedestrian gate next to the site or just a short 2 minute drive to the safari drive through entrance. On this trip we were also treated to a chorus of roars from the prides of lions both in the morning and evening. Without a doubt we will be returning later this year for the ballon festival and Gail & Mark's warm welcome and hospitality.
