Being bumper to bumper in the safari for over 2 hours without a toilet. There was no where you could pull off. They should really have another area like where the giraffes are where you can pull over and stop away from the enclosures.

No there’s very little mud and there’s a fair bit of walking so trainers would be advised hope this helps

Ideally, we would like somewhere with facilities such as a Swimming Pool on site as we will have a 2 year old and 6 month old with us. Does anyone have any recommendations please?

I'm looking for a 4 or 5* hotel with swimming pool (and ideally spa facilities) that is within 45mins/hour drive of Longleat. Any recommendations? Budget is £250 per night max but that should really be for a suite/deluxe room staying mid-week (Monday-Thurs) Thanks!
