Jon and Hayley are delighted to welcome you to Merkins Farm.
A secluded, level site, enjoying panoramic views over the Wiltshire Downs.
Just 14 miles from Longleat, 8 miles from the World Heritage City of Bath, 1 mile from the picturesque Saxon Town of Bradford-On-Avon, Merkins Farm is situated in the peaceful rural hamlet of Bradford Leigh.
Caravans and Motorhomes can pitch up on one of our six electric hook-up hardstanding pitches, and watch the world (and the wildlife) go by. If its a back to basics experience you are looking for, bring your tent and your BBQ, and choose a place in our spacious Tent area.
The field is 8 acres in size, so let the children run free, bring a ball and some bubbles !
We have 2 toilets and 1 shower room. Its not the Ritz, but we work very hard to ensure facilities are kept spic and span, and even have a glamorous mirror and bunting, to keep up appearances, and make you smile.
If the chores become too much, we will gladly cook for you in our Kitsch Cafe.
Serving Full English Breakfasts, Cooked Lunches, Homemade Cakes, and Cream Teas, served on Hayleys ever growing collection of Vintage China and Cakestands !
If country walks are your thing, look no further. Two National Trust properties are within walking distance, across open fields. Bring the children, bring the dog, bring your wellington boots !
Bradford-On-Avon itself is a delightful Saxon Town, with a wealth of individual gift shops, cafes and restaurants. The pretty train station provides a convenient link with Bath, with trains running every 30 minutes.
So, if its a camping experience for the kids, a peaceful break, or a shopping treat for the wife, Merkins Farm is the place for you !!!
