Yellowtail Camping: Grass pitches

General

  • Relaxed rural campsite on a working mixed farm
  • Bradford-on-Avon 15 minutes' drive; Bath half an hour
  • Family-friendly farm on the edge of a Wiltshire village; dogs allowed

Take up a plot at Yellowtail Camping for a relaxed and welcoming stay. This campsite is in the grounds of a working mixed farm in the Wiltshire countryside and it’s a top base for exploring local towns like Bradford-on-Avon or Frome, as well as UNESCO World Heritage Sites like Stonehenge and the Georgian city of Bath. Plus, the place itself is in a convenient location on the edge of the village of Hilperton near Trowbridge.

With a nature pond, a designated picnic and barbecue area and key facilities like toilets, showers and chemical disposal points, Yellowtail Camping has the kind of functional amenities that make holidaying here that little bit more pleasant. Dogs are allowed here throughout the camping season too, but please make sure they're on a lead at all times and well-behaved around other guests and their pets.

New Barn Farm, where the campsite is located, is about 15 minutes' walk from the Kennet and Avon Canal, where there's lots of scope for waterside walks, bike rides and trips to the pubs that are dotted along the towpath. The site is also within a mile's walking or cycling distance from a café and a coffee roaster, while Trowbridge town centre's supermarkets and railway station can be accessed in a five-minute drive or less.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

If reception is closed on arrival: please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Bookings must not be for more than 25 consecutive nights.

    We loved the chilled out atmosphere of the campsite, the hosts were lovely and the toilet and showers were clean, warm and spacious. Well maintained and flat pitches and lots of space. Will be back for another stay soon. Great pub just 10 minutes walk from the site which did a great Ghurka Curry Takeaway, highly recommended

    Showers and toilets some of best I've seen on a campsite with easy check in a a good location. Local pubs good too.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately, a rude family arrived at around 10.30am and their child was screaming and shouting as they pitched their tent. Perhaps the quiet hours needs enforcing. Their son then proceeded to pee in the hedge at 7.15am about a meter away from where we were planning to make breakfast.

Local attractions

Scenic are many of the places around here. First off, there’s Bradford-on-Avon (15 minutes' drive) on the river Avon, where it’s easy to get fully acquainted with the water by canoeing, kayaking or taking a boat tour. There are historical heritage sites too, and it’s not the only place known for that because Bath (half an hour) has Roman baths, the pretty Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey.

More of those historical go-tos, Stonehenge (40 minutes) has surely got to make your list for its iconic stone circle. Closer by, the 14th-century remains of Farleigh Hungerford Castle (15 minutes) and the peaceful Iford Manor Gardens (20 minutes) are some other tributes to old times.

Then, when you fancy throwing some wildlife into the mix, Longleat Safari Park (30 minutes) has more than its fair share. Other cool natural spots include the limestone caverns at Wookey Hole (an hour), but for that buzz of the town, Frome (half an hour) has a historic centre and Wells (an hour) is packed with events, eateries and museums.

Must see

  • Lacock Abbey, Grounds and Cloisters (9.6 kilometres)
  • American Museum in Britain (10.0 kilometres)
  • Prior Park Landscape Garden (11.7 kilometres)

National Trust

  • The Courts Garden (2.4 kilometres)
