Bush Farm is a farm centre with bison, elk and many other animals to see, tucked away in the woods at the southern end of the small village of West Knoyle, two miles from the A303.
The car park is sheltered among the trees and visitors go through the gallery to collect their map for the farm walk. In the gallery are pictures of American wildlife, Native American artefacts of all kinds and 'buffalo' robes to keep you warm in winter.
The farm walk is for about a mile as a circular tour round the fields where visitors can see herds of bison, (between 90-100) as well as elk, all out in the meadows. Closer to the farm yard are lakes and 30 acres of old oak woods, with picnic and play areas and home to poultry, owls, rare breed sheep and pigs, chipmunks, prairies dogs, rheas, raccoons and guanacos. Hidden in the bushes is a duck hide to watch wildlife on the bottom lake.
By the gallery lawn picnic area is a playground and a children’s farmyard. Teas and light meals are served from the shop, where you can also buy bison and elk meat.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
