Camping and Caravanning Club Site Salisbury

| 8 Comments

We had a bit of a camping holiday a couple of weeks ago, and one of the sites that we stayed at was the Camping and Caravanning Club Site Salisbury. We had our brand new tent which we put up for the first time. How did we get on?

The Club Site was a tad tricky to find, as our Sat Nav took us to it, but on a road on the other side of the main entrance, which is literally in the grounds of the rugby club. It soon rerouted us though, and we found it ok.

The site was beautifully kept – very clean and tidy with all grassy areas well cut. The reception / shop building was very pretty with lots of flower tubs and baskets, and the staff were welcoming and friendly. A guy showed us to our pitch on his bicycle. The shop was really well stocked with essentials.

The pitches are spacious, mainly flat – but some do slope. There are two fields – the top one for campers and caravans, and the bottom one for campers, caravans and tents. We had a electric hook up with our pitch which was great.

Two toilet blocks serve the site, with a laundry room, disabled toilet room, family room and washing up room. There was also a freezer available to freeze your ice packs, and waste disposal rooms for chemical loos etc. In the centre of our field was a water point, and a waste water drain, but no rubbish bins. In fact, the only rubbish bins were just outside the main gate, which was a bit of a pain. They were also over flowing and unsightly when we left. Rubbish bin areas in both fields near the water point would be a good idea.

The site is in a lovely location – you can walk into Salisbury centre along the riverside – make sure you turn left out of the gate onto the main road. It was quite a walk, but very flat and pretty. Salisbury is a gorgeous place, we loved it.

The main attraction for us was a visiting Pizza Trailer which offered freshly cooked, wood-fired pizza from only £6 for a 10″ pizza an it was delicious. There was also a catering van selling breakfast rolls in the mornings – although he was never there until the time the board said – catch him early for your bacon butty! He also served fish and chips twice a week in the evenings.

We would highly recommend the Camping and Caravanning Club Site Salisbury as a perfect base for this part of the world, it is a great well serviced site.

The only other point we have to share is that the gate was kept closed all day – it was a pain to get out and open, then close it, and we weren’t sure why. It was also locked after 11pm with foot access only into the site.

Have you stayed at a Camping and Caravanning Club Site before?

  2. This looks like a lovely camping site, with great facilities. The lack of bins sound a bit annoying, you need lots of bins at a camp site. I’m pleased you had a lovely time. x

  3. Sounds like a super place, especially with the shop, showers and family room. I have learned, this summer, after spending a LOT of time camping, that I prefer a site with an indoor communal area. It’s nice to have somewhere indoors to escape to if the weather turns! Free wifi is also a bonus. 😉

  5. This looks great! I used to live near Salisbury, but don’t always have a lot of money to visit – it’s great to know there is such a lovely looking campsite nearby. We are now looking forward to our next camping holiday! 🙂

  6. We used to have a campervan so went away camping quite a lot. Once Archie got little older it was too much hard work trying to fit four of us & a dog so we sold it. We’re now weighing up between a tent or caravan. We’ve been to lot’s of Camping and Caravanning Clubs sites and have always been impressed

  8. I hope they’ve done something about the bins since then; responsible waste disposal is very important. Other than that it looks fab!
