In the idyllic setting of the ancient Savernake Forest, surrounded by a network of tracks and paths, lies the blissful Postern Hill campsite. Completely immersed in the woodlands with lush, flat green pitches, Postern Hill is a special place for anyone, whether you're a seasoned camper or just starting out.
Postern Hill is rich in everything ecological – from grand and ancient trees to a rich array of flora and fauna. In the summer Postern Hill is a hot spot for bats with one of the largest varieties in the UK. If you're camping during the winter months you may spot a deer or two roaming in the woodland. There are also plenty of noisy owls to be hear all year round!
Full of registered oak, beech and sweet chestnut trees, the forest boasts the largest beech avenue in Britain. The forest surrounding the site has been awarded with Site of Special Scientific Interest status due to the diversity of wildlife and plants found within the land.
Hugged by the tree-lined boundaries yet spread spaciously through the site are some of the most beautiful pitches in Wiltshire. Each spot feels like it’s been taken straight out of a secret garden, whether carved into the bushes or overlooked by the site’s many ancient oak trees, and all provide more than a glimpse of serenity.
Wherever you pitch up, you’ll be instantly surrounded by nature.
With the forest literally on your caravan door step you can take full advantage of the many walking and cycling opportunities it offers. Made up of four valleys and more than 4,500 acres of woodlands, Savernake Forest also offers plenty of stunning views, picnic stops and places for contemplation.
Postern Hill campsite is just a 20-minute walk from the pretty market town of Marlborough where you'll find a range of characterful cafes, restaurants and pubs each offering delectable food and enticing tipples. For shoppers there's a plentiful choice of well-known high street stores as well as a number of independents offering something slightly more unique.
