We often get asked why Wiltshire makes such a great location for a Glamping and Camping trip. Here are our top 8 things to do when glamping in Wiltshire (if you manage to put down your BBQ tools and leave the site)!


1. Salisbury Cathedral (

Located half an hour away from Chalke Valley, Salisbury Cathedral is arguably one of Britain's finest examples of medieval architecture. See the world's oldest working clock, and one of only four copies of the 1215 Magna Carta, or if you're feeling energetic - climb the 332 steps for a close up view of Britain's tallest spire.

A landmark that needs no introduction - Stonehenge is perhaps the world's most famous prehistoric monument. A sunrise visit without the crowds is definitely recommended.

3. Uninterrupted Views

Wiltshire is one of the least densely populated areas of Britain. Breathtaking views and magical sunsets are commonplace across the county.

4. Avebury Stone Circle (

Avebury Henge and Stone Circle, a neolithic monument containing the largest stone circle in Europe is certainly worth a visit. The museum is also excellent, containing one of the most archaeologically significant prehistoric collections in Britain.

5. Stourhead House and Gardens (

Some of the most beautiful neo-classical gardens in Britain, a Palladian mansion, and numerous temples - a day trip to the Stourhead Estate is a must.

5. Longleat Safari Park (

Opened in 1966 as the first drive through safari park outside Africa, Longleat is one of the most enjoyable family days out. A tour around the Elizabethan mansion, and getting lost in the largest hedge maze in Britain are also recommended.

6. Incredible Walks

Wiltshire enjoys some of the best areas for walking in the UK. We don't have space to list all the amazing trails, but check out the link for more information.

7. Charming country villages

Finding a quintessential English village in Wiltshire is extremely easy. From idyllic villages in the Chalke Valley to the those in north Wiltshire - stepping back in time is part of the experience. Castle Combe, pictured above, is often named as the 'prettiest village in England'.

8. Chake Valley Camping

Naturally we are a little biased, but Chalke Valley Camping is a reason to visit Wiltshire in itself. Located on a beautiful working farm, we encourage you to have a look at the rest of our website to learn more.
