Lovely site and when we went had plenty of room around us. Only a short drive into the beautiful Marlborough and adjacent to forest walks. The only downside is no showers. We had to go swimming one day to have a shower but this is...More

Nice walk through the woods. BBQ areas, camping and a ice cream van in the summer! Lots of little paths and trails great for walking the dog or riding the bike.

Went to the Forest for the first time today. Dogs loved it although I kept to the smaller paths to avoid the cyclists which my two collies would love to chase. Some amazing old trees. Managed to find 2 of the named ones. Quite easy...More

Lots of families picnicking and playing games, great old fashioned fun. We walked and met many friendly people enjoying the area. Lots of walks with markers, colour coded walks would be good with distances. We picked up a map from the campsite for £1.50 which...More

Driving back from Hampshire, we took a detour to visit Savernake Forest, just to the South-East of Marlborough. Shame as we'd left it late in the day (it was getting dark), so we didn't have much time to explore! Trying to spot the Great Oak...More

This is our dogs weekend treat. Off lead walks in forest. We walk in the forest throughout the year. It’s a great way to see how the seasons change. Just wish other people would respect it and not litter or fly tip
