Pop Up Outwest

33 units · Motorhomes, Tents9 acres · West Ashton, England
Pop-up Outwest is a quiet secluded site on a 200-acre organic free-range family farm in the gorgeous Wiltshire countryside, and just 5 minutes’ drive from the town of Trowbridge. This is a splendid spot in which to switch off for a bit: it’s surrounded by farm fields (with grazing cows) and woodland areas, with several footpaths leading off from the farm into the local area. There are lots more trails to stroll along through the country lanes, leading to small villages such as Steeple Ashton, Edington and Bratton and furthur from us is Bath, about half an hour’s drive away if you fancy a change of scenery. Life on site is pretty straightforward: the site is simple to get to from the nearby A350, and with easy access through the private gate into the pitching area. Barbecues are permitted on site, and firepits available to hire – either one being a mighty fine idea to keep you warm as you spend evenings gazing out over views of the Westbury White Horse hills (which is a five-minute drive away if you want a closer look). Facilities here are minimal to preserve the peace of the place, but guests will have access to portaloos in the pitching field.

Woodland campsites in Savernake Forest guide

Overview

Towering beech trees, ancient oaks, and twisted roots provide a dramatic backdrop for woodland walks in Savernake Forest. Enjoy nature walks or leisurely bike rides along the tree-lined trails, venture off-road to explore the wooded glades, then find a shady picnic spot beneath the trees. Highlights include Capability Brown’s Grand Avenue, the bluebell woods at Little Frith, and the Big Bellied Oak, one of the country’s oldest trees. There’s no camping in the forest itself, but there is a campsite right by the northern entrance, where you can pitch your tent or park your caravan within strolling distance of the forest trails.

When to go

These woodlands are photo-ready at any time of year. Visit in spring when bluebells and wildflowers blanket the forest floor, or in fall when the autumn leaves transform the trees into a sea of red, yellow, and orange. Summer (July-Aug) weekends can get busy—make an early start to avoid the crowds and snag a picnic bench. The trails can get muddy when it rains, so wellies or hiking boots are a good idea.

Know before you go

  • Savernake Forest is located about a 10-minute drive south of Marlborough along the A346. The main entrance is at Postern Hill at the northwest end of the park, where free parking is available.
  • There is no entrance fee to visit the forest.
  • The forest has picnic and barbecue areas, and restrooms (open from Easter through October only). There are no other facilities within the park, so bring everything you need with you. 
  • There are some paved paths in the forest that are accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
