Went to the local National Trust property and on the way out said thank you to the lovely lady with her dog at the exit and asked if she knew of anywhere locally we could find a sandwich or light snack to eat. Merkins Farm was the reply, and what a delight this little place was. All retro kitted out... More

Third time we've visited with a group of friends. This site is a gem, level pitches, laid back staff, brilliant cafe on site serving excellent food and great views. There is one criticism. The toilets, they're clean but there's only two and only one shower. It's really not a good deal to only have the two with no hot water,... More

Our stay at Tickleberry cottage, just competed, was one of our best cottage holidays so far. Everything was catered for except the weather. More or less every facility was provided including toys for the children. The views were marvelous and extensive, you can even see the white horse at Westbury from the front room window. Good rooms, comfy beds and... More

We absolutely loved Merkin's Farm Cottages. We rented the 3-room cottage and it was perfect - my wife and I, our two kids, and two grandparents. The cottages have recently been re-done so everything is clean and neat. The setting is fantastic with lovely views. Also, in six trips to the UK, this was the BEST bed my wife and... More

We stayed here for four nights with the caravan. It's a lovely friendly location with great views over the fields and hills. The cafe is a little gem with a lovely atmosphere, the staff were exceptional and made our visit even more enjoyable. Try the breakfast , you will not be disappointed. There is a bit of road noise from... More

Stayed here first weekend in April 2014. I was pleasantly surprised that the ground was well drained especially after the amount of rain experienced in the preceeding weeks. Being a hilltp site it can get breezy with nothing to stop the wind across yhe Trowbridge vale. There is only one toilet for each sex and one shower room. The shower... More

Very short review, stopped in there for coffee and cake on a cycle ride twice. The food, coffee and atmosphere can't be faulted, a really nice place to stop. Retro decor with a warm cafe for those cold winter days, or a lovely outdoor area for when our sun shines

Spent three days with our motorhome from New Years day. Camp site was quiet. Just two loos and a shower, but what more do we need? Surprise 'star' was the on site café, serving fresh good food. Our breakfast of scrambled egg and bacon on toast was excellent. Thanks for a great stay.
