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.

Peaceful Retreat.

Just a few words. I love this site it's not too big, the wardens are really helpful. This is my 2nd visit with a caravan previous visits have been with a motorhome. Last year I owned a Luna Ariva I found it to be rather small you may think that odd for a lady who's on her own. Now the proud owner of a Coachman Kimberley with motormovers. I was on plot 15 & next to me was a CCRV Sabre Silhouette a big beast. The owner a lovely gentleman came out with a brolly & offered to help me just goes to show chivalries not dead. A great place to visit is the Milestone Living History Museum in Basingstoke. The Army Air Museum is just along the road towards Andover. Looking forward to returning next year. Sheila Benton

Description of the site is misleading.

As a previous reviewer has pointed out, the photos create an impression of a nice open site, it isnt. Roughly two thirds of the pitches are in small clearings in the middle of a wood. A lot do not get any sun for most of the day, and some would prove very difficult to pitch up onto without the use of a motor mover. The pitch we had got no direct sunlight, and was so short that it felt like we were in a layby with passing vehicles just a couple of feet front the front of our van. There is a CL next to the site that I wish we had found. It is open with stunning views, and the next time we head towards Salisbury that is where we will stay. The site is well placed for local touring and very well kept. The wardens were very friendly and helpful.

Camping under trees

The majority of this site is in a mature wood, high trees blocking sunlight and sunny pitches being for seasonal booking. The photographs on the web site only show the field adjacent to the facilities and are misleading. Ironically there is a CL in the next field which has fabulous uninterrupted views. The CL vans were closer to the club site toilet block than our pitch! We were in a clearing of 4 pitches, the best two being seasonal pitches. If you don’t like camping under trees this is not the site for you.

Over night stop

Stayed for 1 night on route to the West Country. Arrived about 6.30 pm and met by a pleasant warden. This site is very small and accessible on and off some pitches is a challenge , a motor mover is a godsend . Access road narrow and site facilities clean and tidy.

Good location for Salisbury and wide soft rolling Wiltshire landscape

We stayed here in the 2nd week of September 2020 for 4 days, and were happy with our experience. The facilities were run Covid Secure and the staff were more than helpful and friendly. The lead photo on the site is where we moved to on our 2nd day as it was more suited to our tastes - as most of the site is on a tight loop on the hillside in amongst trees and was a bit too shady for us. Finding the right spot that will be in the sun at the chosen time of day is pretty tricky so if you want the best location get there early. I was thrilled to find the Army Air museum is just 6 mins by car down the road in "The Wallops"! and it is only about 10 / 15 mins out of the centre of Salisbury. The CL site right next door has wide open vista's and is appealing but of course not all the facilities of the main site. The dog walk is attractive and while narrow gives vista's over lovely countryside. Herbs are available growing outside the reception. Thankyou! A good transit stop and fine for a short stay. Thank you to the staff for all their help.
