Blackland Lakes: Sunny skies

General

  • Scenic and peaceful site at the foot of the North Wessex Downs
  • A mile from the world-famed Westbury White Horse
  • Two fishing lakes, shop and big barbecue and events area

Ever seen the famed Westbury White Horse, high up above an Iron Age hill fort on Salisbury Plain? You can get to it within a short canter with a stay at Blackland Lakes: this peaceful rural place is a mere mile from the world-famed equine etching.

If you're more up for lazing around at base (after a trip to see the Wiltshire gee-gee, of course), Blackland has two coarse fishing lakes filled with carp, tench, perch, roach, bream and gudgeon, with mirror carp up to 25lbs in Heron Lake and bream to 11lb in both. Another lake is set aside as a habitat for wildfowl for those who'd rather laze about this green and scenic setting.

The park covers 17 acres, divided into secluded grass paddocks. A big highlight is the central barbecue barn, which can cater to groups of up to 100 via its kitchen and licensed bar. The team has also opened a well-stocked and licensed shop, selling essentials, drinks, ice cream and camping basics like tent pegs. Within the shop is a small tourist info section with leaflets on local attractions, events and details of local pubs, restaurants, and takeaways that can deliver your din straight to the site.

Blackland is at just outside the village of Caine, at the foot of the North Wessex Downs. The closest pub serving food is about 10 minutes' walk away.

    Was a lovely campsite. Very welcoming and clean and tidy. Lots of beautiful wildlife to see and the kids loved feeding the goats.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets were ok, they were clean but there is only 2 showers in each toilet block, so when busy would be a pit luck of whether you got one or not.

Local attractions

The Westbury White Horse – Wiltshire's famed giant chalk horse carved into the slope of Salisbury Plain – is about a mile from Blackland Lakes, on the edge of Bratton Downs. Standing 80 feet tall and 170 feet wide, it's viewable for 16 or 17 miles around its setting; from the horse itself, you'll be able to see Bratton Castle and the white horses of Devizes and Alton Barnes.

This is most certainly a land of archaeological and world-famed historical highlights: reach the pretty village of Avebury and its three prehistoric stone circles within 10 minutes' drive and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stonehenge within 40. If your tastes are more modern, a vintage motor museum is less than 10 minutes' walk away.

Take a trip out to any of the area's market towns such as Calne, Devizes, Chippenham, Corsham, Royal Wootton Bassett and Marlborough, all within 25 minutes' drive. Bath is about 35 minutes away.

For peaceful sightseeing within a short drive, try Bowood House and its landscaped gardens, five miles away, and the National Trust village of Lacock eight miles from the site, a magical place that's had screen appearances in the likes of Downton Abbey and Harry Potter.

Must see

  • Wadworth Visitor Centre (4.5 miles)
  • Lacock Abbey, Grounds and Cloisters (5.4 miles)
