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 trot along to it within a short canter with a stay at Blackland Lakes: this peaceful rural place is a mere mile from the horse, one of the best-known sights in the south-west.

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 for you to cast off at, for 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.

A highlight of this well-appointed park is its 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 of both the hard and soft variety, 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. As well as the Westbury White Horse, the site is within easy reach of other famed Wiltshire archaeological landmarks like the stone circles of Avebury and the Neolithic tomb of West Kennet Long Barrow; UNESCO-listed and utterly fab Stonehenge, and the prehistoric artificial chalk mound of Silbury Hill.

The park covers 17 acres, divided into secluded grass paddocks. Among the amenities are two bathroom buildings with toilets and showers, one open at all times and heated, and the other open in winter and with a separate ladies' washroom.

The closest pub serving food is about 10 minutes' walk away.

  • Electric optional grass trailer tent or tent pitch (large)

  • Liked: 

    Site was generally clean and tidy. Not much noise even though there were a number of children on the site.

    Plenty of space on the pitch and around it.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet and shower blocks could do with bringing more up to date.

overall a lovely site which will visit again 19/07/2017

  • Electric optional grass trailer tent or tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We were on camping paddock 5 which was big and spacious. Most people had already pitched around the edges but there was still space in the middle which soon filled up. Easy walk to amenities which were clean and well looked after. Shop was quaint selling basic needs and food for the goats! Walk around lakes on the trail was lovely and the nature reserve was very relaxing. Great if you love space, nature and fishing! :)

    Disliked: 

    The shower was BOILING! I couldn't stay under it and the switch to turn it off was outside the shower cubicle so had to lean out to turn it off! You are in your own cubicle with shower cubicle inside though! No choice of temperature it was hot hot hot!

  • Electric optional grass trailer tent or tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The location was quiet, attractive and close to local tourist spots.

    Disliked: 

    The facilities, were old, dark, dinghy and by the afternoon were dirty and smelly. The site wasn't busy so dread to think what they would be like over a bank holiday. Reinvestment in shower and toilet facilities desperately required and more regular cleaning. It is a pity because it could be such a lovely site!

    Facilities were very clean, and nearby our pitch. Bar was a great place to go, and have a drink, along with our dog. Nice walk around the park *Nature Trail* which was a nice walk for us & the dog. Found the site to be in a lovely setting, and would recommend. Staff were also nice & friendly. Will definitely be back again.

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: you can 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 minutes' drive. 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, a UNESCO site for its Roman baths, hot springs and Georgian architecture, 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)
  • Silbury Hill (5.9 miles)

National Trust

  • Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum and Village (5.5 miles)
