Visited with a group, great light festival and lake cruise. My wife loved the bat cave, safari drove ok but weren't able to do the monkey section. Good day out and eateries quite reasonable.

We arrived at about 11am on a cold, blustery day. It wasn’t too busy and we found somewhere to park very easily. The first thing we did was book tickets for the 1:30 safari bus. As it had started to rain quite heavily, we decided...More

We went on a organised trip to see the animals, house and light show. The animals were a disappointment as many were not roaming free. The house was trimmed up as an Edwardian Xmas would have been, but the star of the trip was the...More

There is a separate Meerkat experience you can buy that would allow you access to handling meerkats, but if you just want to visit the enclosure then it's a walk through experience with them running around free.

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?

Luxury Hotel within an hour of Longleat (5 Replies)
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!
