Why stay here ...

Visit Wiltshire offer a map and guide and lots of information on things to see and do for visitors to Salisbury, from beautiful scenery to a variety of activities, there is something for everyone. City parking is available but the easiest way into town is to use the Salisbury Park & Rides. These have an eight foot height limit, but over-height vehicles may park at the Britford site.

Salisbury Hillside Club Site is outstandingly set amidst rolling countryside, much of which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This holiday getaway location is spread across several levels, giving you the choice of pitches with splendid views over the Hampshire countryside or those set in open woodland glades, with local wildlife on your doorstep. The caravan park offers excellent outdoor expeditions - you can leisurely take in the scenery by walking the Test Way and Clarendon Way or bike the Downs along charming countryside cycle ways.

Interesting places to visit during your caravanning trip to Wiltshire include the Broadlands at Romsey or one of the several lovely National Trust properties in the near vicinity. The area of Wiltshire itself is steeped in rich history and includes the World Heritage Site at Stonehenge. Other day trips that could be enjoyed from the site include the New Forest National Park with its wild ponies, the bustling south coast resort of Bournemouth, castles, plus a variety of woodlands and beaches. The caravan site is also a favourite stopover for a night or two whilst en-route to the Isle of Wight, the West Country or even France and Europe.

Beautiful, peaceful, - one for the grown ups....

We stay here quite often as a quick weekend getaway as its only 5 miles from home. The side is small with tree surrounded "pods" for two, three or 4 units. Some are fairly close to each other. It's extremely tranquil and definitely not really one for the children (a bonus in some eyes as there is no play park.) I would say that some pitches are probably better for more experienced caravaners as access can be a little tricky but if you have them, motor movers are a god send! Lots of water points and bins/recycling all around the site so you're not far from sorting out the household chores. The shower and toilet block is at the top of the site and if you have any mobility issues its probably best to pitch there if you don't want a fairly steep walk up hill. The top "field" area near the facilities block and office gives the best sunshine all day as it is more open. Showers and loos are ALWAYS immaculate. I have just come home from a weekend and Trevor and Claire could not have been more friendly and accommodating after I'd messed up my booking. (I'd booked Sat and Sun night instead of Fri/Sat!) It was sorted out with no fuss and a smile! The access from the main road is easy (it's a fast A road so be careful of other traffic). Nearest shop (i think) is Nisa in Porton Village. They sell "Cook" frozen meals and the fish pie was absolutely delicious. Good choice of meats, bread, milk, booze etc. A little further into Salisbury is an Aldi for the big shop. Also a M&S at the BP garage if you want a bit more of a treat. The "Table Table" restaurant on the right hand side as you go into Salisbury is VERY lacklustre. No atmosphere, microwaved burger and chips type stuff. However, good service and relatively cheap. Great access to Salisbury which is lovely to visit. Don't miss Danebury Ring Iron Age Hillfort for great dog walking (but mind your valuables in the car park there). It's our nearest site so we will always visit! Love it!! 5 STARS x

Another great stay.

My wife and Dachshund stayed at Salisbury Hillside for the 2nd excursion out in the 'van, we also stayed there for the 1st. Coincidentally we were allocated the same pitch so setting up and finding things was easy. Set up was quicker than the first time, thankfully. The Bank Holiday weekend was busy but the site was still quiet and peaceful. The pitches are well spaced out and the hookups easy to get to and the water and waste facilities superb. The host are great, and chatty as well as being efficient and keep the park in a great condition. Drainage is great and the views are spot on from some of the pitches and a short walk from others. The dog walk left is short and pointless, but go to the right and the world opens up for access to many more walks. Danebury Hill Fort and Figsbury ring are close by and great walks. The track leading to Figsbury ring is challenging in anything but a Paris Dakar Racer :-) please take care. The views from both of these are spectacular. Salisbury Hillside is conducive to relaxing which is exactly what I needed and got. Tilshead Caravans are less than 2 miles away, and Webbs Caravans about 6 miles and both are superb just in case you need anything for your stay. We will be back for sure.

Lovely peaceful site

We have stayed here several times - the site is very peaceful, well maintained (thank you warden team) and convenient to lots of interesting days out - this time we visited Stonehenge and the Museum of Army Flying, both pre-booked online, of course! The CAMC have worked hard to make use of shared facilities COVID safe but sadly not everyone is respecting the armband system - twice in one morning I arrived to find no armbands on the 3 hooks yet two and then three cubicles inside in use. Come on, folks, do your bit too! A torch could be useful if you want to walk up to the loo block at night as although lighting on the road is there, it is low level and not intrusive - depends how happy you are to walk in the dark! Also, it would seem wise to follow guidance and not arrive before12.00 - there is minimal manoeuvring room on the entry point and I watched two vans having to edge their way out very slowly past an over-keen early arrival.

Lovely relaxing stay

We came to stay at this site for a long weekend to relax and we weren't disappointed. Check in was easy and we were told to take a look round first to see what pitch we liked which was quite nice. The pitches were varying in size but we got a great one (number 50!). The site was very peaceful and nicely laid out. I was really pleased to see that the shower block was open and they had temperature adjustable showers that stay on without the awkward push button to keep it going. The toilets/shower block was spotless and they operated a wristband system that you hook outside to show its occupied and means there should never be more than 3 people instead at a time - great for peace of mind. Salisbury and nearby pubs were within 10 mins to drive too, we sampled the Hook & Glove & Lord Nelson both serving nice food but lacking a bit of atmosphere (probably down to the fact we ate pretty early both times). The Salisbury market was good for a look round on Saturday morning, plenty of nice cafes to watch the world go by. The site dog walk did the job but gets a bit tight with overgrown flora & fauna the further you go down it (no big deal). No sign of the rabbits (probably hiding from the wind and rain!). Overall it was perfect for a few nights away and we got just the R&R we were after. We will definitely return in the future.

Brilliant site for visiting Salisbury and surrounding areas

This is an excellent site and both sets of wardens (Lisa and Dave; Claire and Trevor) worked very hard to keep the site maintained to a very high standard whilst giving holiday makers a very warm reception. COVID 19 safety arrangements are really good and we would be very happy to stay at Salisbury Hillside again. We chose a lovely large pitch in a sheltered wooded glade without too much shade. Dog walk is a public footpath. (Leads eventually to a busy A road). The site directory indicates that this is a good site for walking and cycling. Unfortunately you need a car to find places to go to, in order to do these activities. Plenty of things to do and visit with a motor vehicle. Suggestions for local walks are Danebury Hill Fort and Bentley Wood, both easily accessible by car. Also worth visiting are Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge and Old Sarum. Would recommend the Lord Nelson at Winterslow and the White Hart at Stockbridge for food. We had a great stay.
