Longleat Caravan Club Site

We stayed for 4 nights over the New Year period and had an amazing time. The site is perfectly located and walking into Longleat is quick and easy (exit the site, turn left and walk for 30m!). We were impressed with how family focussed Longleat is. You expect the animals but everything has the family in mind, such as the Chinese lantern display, early fireworks display (6.30pm) and even the house which has fairytale characters (real life actors) in each room to entertain the children. Our 3 year old son loved the Chinese lanterns and the considerable investment that Longleat had put into their inaugural display was definitely worth it. The safari park is also great fun even if our car left the monkey enclosure without the roof bar capping that it started with! Ticketing was under focus when we were there because there had been concerns about people abusing the ability to walk into the park and by-passing Guest Services to buy a ticket. Please don't spoil this privilege for the majority. The Longleat staff are very helpful and identified the cheapest way for us to buy the tickets we needed for an evening to see the lantern display and fireworks (note that twilight tickets are only available on certain days) and another day for the safari and other attractions. A short-term multi-day pass for Caravan clubbers would be a win-win for Longleat and the Caravan Club. In addition to the location, the site was well laid out with good facilities which are kept clean by the hard working staff. Our son also really enjoyed the play area. The wardens were always extremely helpful and I appreciated their assistance, particularly as this was our first time touring. We've already pencilled in a return trip with friends for next year!
My wife, our border collie and myself spent three nights on the site to see in the new year, not been away for new year before but it was great and we would definitely do it again. The firework display was amazing and we had a really good view from the site. Plus it was much quieter at midnight than ever is at home, with fireworks going off for hours, we didn't have that at the site as the display was early in the evening. The wardens were friendly and the site well laid out and kept clean and tidy. We would recommend this site to families and couples alike. We did find the dog walk very boggy though, and had a lack of space to exercise our dog, but everything else more than made up for that.
An excellent site and fortunately for us, just 45 mins journey to the site. We were fortunate to see the beautiful Festival of Light during our first evening before the evening security staff were put in place as we approached New Year's Eve. We were treated to a great firework display as we had a birds' eye view from our pitch which also enjoyed the afternoon winter sun. The site was immaculate as always and we would like to thank the wardens who had their work cut out as the site filled up for New Year. They did a sterling job and I am sure they would have welcomed more help as there are normally 3 pairs of wardens on site in main season. We are looking forward to planning our next visit.
stopped here from 28 th december 2014 to 1 st january 2015. invited to a new year wellcome with the wardens and other site users. brilliant most welcoming. the site was clean and wardens very friendly. would definitely stay again. cheers and well done.
Our second time at this site and cannot fault the site at all, very friendly, very clean. We were however, most disappointed that although the information states that caravan club members can go into Longleat Park without a ticket and use the restaurants, we were in fact refused access on 30th Dec 2014.
We stayed here for 3 days between Christmas and New Year. The site is awkward to get to off the main road. The approach road is extremely narrow but there are passing places. However if you have a large twin axle caravan like me then passing will be a nightmare. The site is great. Very well looked after and the toilet block is immaculate and well heated. The showers are brilliant. All in all a very good site apart from the approach road.
