Park Farm Campsite

3 units · Motorhomes, Tents3 acres · Malmesbury, England
Wild Inspired, back to nature camping with a touch of luxury. The campsite is an 3 acre open field surrounded by trees looking out onto an awesome view. We are a working, organic dairy farm. The pitches are large, each with the option to have a campfire (we sell our own wood). We have recently installed some compost loos and some gas showers, we also have a covered washing up area. There are chickens that live next door to the campsite and we have a small honesty shop selling eggs, apple juice, local preserves and other goodies. There are some local woods and footpaths to enjoy walking locally. We have a village pub 3 miles away, just about walkable! We are located on the outskirts only the Cotswold so lots of lovely places to explore further afield.

Campsites near Swindon guide

Overview

While the crowds make a beeline for nearby Oxford and Bath, the Wiltshire market town of Swindon makes a strategic basecamp for in-the-know campers wanting to explore the region’s headline acts. Check into a quiet farm campsite or caravan park and enjoy easy access to the surrounding cities and AONBs. Browse the shops and markets in the Old Town, enjoy a picnic by the lakeside in Queens Park, or stroll around the woodlands and landscaped gardens of The Lawns. Swindon also lies along the Great West Way heritage trail, and a highlight is the Great Western Railway at STEAM Museum.

Where to go

North Wessex Downs

South of Swindon, the verdant hills of the North Wessex Downs AONB have miles of trails for hikers, cyclists, and horseback riders. Marvel at the Wiltshire White Horses, giant chalk drawings etched onto the hillsides; explore the ancient stone circle at Avebury; or cruise along the Kent & Avon Canal. Stop by the market towns of Marlborough, Hungerford, and Pewsey, where you’ll find traditional pubs and local artisan shops.

The Cotswolds

England’s most idyllic slice of residential countryside is the Cotswolds AONB. Hire a campervan for a road trip along the winding country lanes, stopping to explore the pretty stone villages, walk or cycle through rolling farmlands, or spot celebrity residents in villages like Castle Combe, Broadway, and Bourton on the Water. The Cotswolds adds a touch of glamor to camping, too—there are some great glamping options, and you’re never far from a gastro-pub.

Salisbury Plains

An hour’s drive south of Swindon, the enigmatic ruins of Stonehenge lie high on the Salisbury Plains. Visit the UNESCO site at sunrise or sunset for the most dramatic views, take a hike through the hills, then head to nearby Salisbury to admire the mediaeval cathedral. To the south, quiet hiking trails and backcountry campsites await in the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs AONB.

When to go

If you’re visiting in peak season between July and August, Swindon makes a smart choice to dodge the crowds, and there’s also a busy calendar of summer events and festivals. Wiltshire weather is best from May through September—plan a hiking trip in late spring to see the countryside blossoming with wildflowers, or in fall for autumnal walks through the Cotswolds.

Know before you go

  • Swindon has several camping and outdoors stores where you can pick up supplies for your camping trip. 
  • Swindon has public transport links to many of the surrounding towns and attractions, but it is handy to have your own transport, especially if staying at rural campsites.
  • Most campsites require advance booking, and many ask for the full payment upfront. Be sure to check opening dates, as some campsites close in the winter months.
  • Wild camping is illegal throughout Wiltshire.
