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!
