Great Family Campsites
This campsite is compact and has a great flat track around it perfect for younger kids with bikes. Hire a bat detector and go listening for bats in the surrounding Savernake Forest at dusk! There are toilets but no shower facilities here.
Far Peak campsite has lots of great facilities on-site including a fabulous indoor and outdoor climbing centre and low ropes course. There is a great cafe on site and a great BBQ option in the summer – this makes it really easy for first time campers.
Bracelands is a great destination for an outdoor adventure weekend – there is great biking and canoeing options nearby. There are some glamping pods available for those who would rather not sleep in a tent!
Spot wild ponies roaming around the tents. This is a large campsite with plenty of hot showers!
This is a great camping option for a weekend of family fun! Campsite fees include free entry to the park where there are adventure playgrounds, an animal farm and a huge jumping pillow.
