Little Thornham Campsite: Pitches spaced down the side of a large open play area

General

  • Back to basics pitches on a Wiltshire farm with lovely rural views
  • Half-hour drive to Longleat Safari Park; 40 minutes to Bath
  • Farm produce for sale on site; barbecues and firepits welcome

Simple, spacious pitches are the order of the day at Little Thornham Campsite – along with stunning views over Salisbury Plain.

This peaceful site is part of a small farm in the Wiltshire countryside, half a mile from the A361 for a location that’s relatively easy to access but mercifully far away from traffic noise. It’s a real back-to-basics setup here, with just a compost toilet, a cold water tap and a cold-water washing-up area on the facilities front (please note there are no showers and no chemical disposal point). There’s plenty of open space for kids (and grownups too…) to play games in the field by the pitches, though.

A highlight here is likely to be a meal cooked out in the open – you’re welcome to bring barbecues and firepits (although their use may have to be banned in very hot, dry weather). Wood is available to buy from the farm, along with a whole range of fresh produce including sausages and eggs from the farm and burgers from the local butcher. There’s also a fresh milk delivery three times a week. Other bits can be picked up from the shops in Melksham, 10 minutes' drive away.

If you fancy a break from cooking, take a walk instead to one of the nearby pubs – there’s one 15 minutes away (with lovely food, a garden and a play area) or another 20 minutes away by the Kennet and Avon Canal. This is also the place for a good long waterside walk or a bit of fishing (just make sure to bring the relevant licence with you).
