General

  • Peaceful and spectaculary scenic site with private fishing lakes
  • Fully refurbished in 2017: café, play areas and well-stocked shop
  • 10 miles from Longleat and 20 minutes from Bath

You might want to arrange things so you're able to stay here for quite some time... Family-friendly, pet-friendly and spectacularly scenic Fairwood Lakes is a peaceful and remote park under the Salisbury Plains, newly updated in 2017 following an extensive redevelopment. It guarantees excellent facilities, a warm welcome, first-rate accommodation and return-to-nature retreats set deep in countryside for couples and families.

This is a highly scenic site, close to lakes and woodland: come here to fish, to laze or to use it as a base for investigating the lush landscapes and ancient sights within easy driving distance (Bath is 20 minutes from base and Stonehenge within half an hour; the site is also within 10 miles of the fab Longleat House and Safari Park).

The heart of the park is its lovely lakes, with carp up to 27lb, silverfish and pike all here to catch (fishing permits can be purchased from reception). And if you don't fancy angling? Amble around the lakes instead, for a peaceful several hours of daydreaming and wildlife spotting, or lie back with a book while the kids let loose in the play areas... there are three on site, including a large soft play area (admission fee included in the pitch price); the Little Tikes outdoor adventure play area, specifically for toddlers, and an outdoor play area for ages three and up.

Among the swish redeveloped facilities is a new café, with wifi, an extensive decking area and a good range of freshly prepared breakfasts, sandwiches, light lunches, fresh coffees and homemade cakes to have in or take away. Special theme nights including summer barbecues and curry nights are held throughout high season.

Fairwood Lakes also has a small shop. Its refurbished amenities include dishwashing facilities, new toilet blocks, disabled toilets and chemical disposal points. A new amenities block was added in December 2017, with an individual disabled WC and shower wetroom.

A dog-friendly area is in the touring field.

    Pitches 1-6 were most convenient for play area, shower block & cafe. So much to entertain the children, the shower block is brand new. Longleat is close by.

    We really liked our stay at Fairwood Lakes over a glorious weekend. We have two kids aged 9 and 11, so it was perfect for them with the soft play and park to keep them occupied. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.
    Fishing was good with plenty of carp and bream.

    The park isnt too big, it had an amazing amount of things to do for young children that you never see in a small site. The facilities were very clean and tidy personaly something i think either makes or brakes a stay. You can tell the owners realy care about the service they provide and not just their bottom line.

    Disliked: 

    I wish the shop and ball bit were open for longer. Nights in the summer months can be quite long with small children that get bored easily.

    We were pitched right next to an opening to where there is open water with no fence (pitch 13) This was a worry with a very fast 2 year old so because of this we couldnt relax. I think a gate at the opening would be a big benefit.

    Lovely location & decent pitches with clean facilities. Showers need to run for longer & don’t always work straight away, the soft play should be free for residents as part of the stay & are over priced.

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not get your wristbands. The soft play is included and if you had come to reception we would have given them to you straight away. The included play is on the Pitchup site too.

As far as the showers are concerned the water is dispensed on a push button for 25 seconds. This is an industry standard and you have to push the button each time to keep the shower constant. The water at the park is on demand from a direct boiler and is delivered at 42 degrees c which is the standard.

I hope this helps and we are very grateful for your feedback.

Thank you.

  • Liked: 

    The pitches are big. The soft play area and the park were a big hit with the children and very useful for entertaining them whilst putting the tent up/down.
    The cafe was nice and the outside seating area was very pleasant.
    The fishing lake was very pretty and had two families of geese which the children loved. It is worth noting that the campsite no longer hires fishing kit so if you want to fish then you will need to take your own.
    Staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    On the first night of our stay people who were staying in the lodges were allowed to check in at approx 2330hrs which was annoying as it was quite loud when cars were driving past our tent on the gravel. This is a minor point as our stay was generally excellent :-)

Local attractions

What a lot there is to do around Fairwood Lakes's Westbury town and Wiltshire county location, from ancient gorges and ancient stones to exotic animal centres and racing car circuits.

Longleat House and Safari Park 10 miles from the park is a top pick for those who like Elizabethan architecture and/or wildlife, with 500 animals on a 9,000-acre Wiltshire countryside estate.

About 20 minutes away, lovely old Bath is famed most for its baths (funny, that), made popular by posh sorts in Victorian times, and for its Jane Austen Centre, a persuasively interesting house with museum and Regency tearoom. If you fancy doing something a bit different/more boastworthy, take to the skies above the city for a ride in a hot air balloon.

Even more famed is Stonehenge 30 minutes away, for hours' worth of pondering just why ancient peeps decided to haul these mammoth rocks to stand up. The visitor centre has some suggestions, along with 250 ancient objects and tools of Neolithic life.

All a bit too tame? Zip along to the motorsports of Castle Combe Circuit; tackle the sheer rock face and climb of Cheddar Gorge; watch the geegees hurtle along at Bath Racecourse, or take the kids to meet the witch at the Wookey Hole Caves.

Must see

  • Longleat (5.8 miles)
  • American Museum in Britain (8.7 miles)
  • Prior Park Landscape Garden (8.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Westwood Manor (5.2 miles)
  • The Courts Garden (6.4 miles)
